Raymond caught two of three targets for 46 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 37-31 loss to Seattle.
Raymond got loose for a 36-yard touchdown on a flea flicker but didn't make much noise otherwise. Averaging 22.0 yards on his three catches this season, Raymond will likely remain a low-volume deep threat despite the absence of Jameson Williams (suspension) entering a Week 3 matchup with Atlanta.

Raymond caught one pass (one target) for 20 yards during Thursday's 21-20 win over the Chiefs.
Raymond only saw one look in what ended up being a much slower-paced game than expected. Meanwhile, Josh Reynolds operated as the clear No. 2 receiver behind Amon-Ra St. Brown while Marvin Jones handled the No. 3 role. Even though Raymond has the ability to pop for a big play or two on any given week, he won't even be worth a dart throw in DFS formats if he is the No. 6 receiving option behind the top receivers plus tight end Sam LaPorta and running back Jahmyr Gibbs.
Raymond agreed to a two-year extension with the Lions on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Raymond's contributions come primarily on special teams. He has topped 200 punt return yards in each of the past three seasons and scored one punt return touchdown in 2022. Raymond also provides Detroit with depth at wide receiver, having compiled 1,192 receiving yards and four touchdowns in his previous two seasons with the Lions.
Raymond has been active at OTAs as both a wide receiver and return man, Mike O'Hara of the Lions' official site reports.
Raymond bounced around the league for a half-decade before settling in Detroit the past two seasons and catching 95 passes for 1,192 yards and four touchdowns over 33 games (21 starts). He's never truly been viewed as a starter but has ended up playing a lot on offense due to injuries ahead of him, and he's also been one of the better punt returner during that time, averaging 11.2 yards on 21 returns in 2021 and 13.2 yards on 20 chances in 2022. Raymond turns 29 in August and seems unlikely to go much beyond his production from the last two years, but he does have another opportunity to earn regular snaps with Jameson Williams suspended for the first six weeks. With Amon-Ra St. Brown primarily manning the slot, Raymond's main competition for perimeter snaps in September should come from Marvin Jones and Josh Reynolds.
Raymond told reporters Monday that he played the second half of Sunday's win over the Packers with broken ribs, Eric Woodyard of ESPN.com reports.
It's unclear when Raymond suffered the injury, but he said it happened sometime during the first half, which means he made arguably the play of the night -- a 43-yard catch in the third quarter to set up the first touchdown of the game -- with broken ribs. The big play helped pave the way for the undrafted wideout out of Holy Cross to lead the Lions in receiving as they upset their divisional rival and kept Green Bay out of the playoffs. Raymond, who has one year remaining on his contract with the Lions, presumably will have plenty of time to recover during the offseason and should be ready for the 2023 campaign.
Raymond caught four of six targets for 66 yards in Sunday's 20-16 win over Green Bay.
Raymond finished as the Lions' leading receiver in a game during which No. 1 wideout Amon-Ra St. Brown (6-49-0) struggled to break free against the Packers' elite secondary. The veteran wideout carved out a nice role with Detroit this season, finishing with 51 receptions and 682 receiving yards, both of which set new high-water marks for his career. However, with Jameson Williams set to see an expanded role, it is uncertain if Raymond will have the opportunity to build upon this season during the second-year of his two-year deal with Detroit.
Raymond caught three of three targets for 40 yards during Sunday's 41-10 win over the Bears.
Raymond found the most success through the air among Lions depth receivers, but his low-volume role continues to prove much more valuable in real life than fantasy. Raymond will be back on the field in a Week 18 matchup with the Packers.
