After one other worrying sport, the primary half specifically, the Ravens secured their 5th win of the season. Sitting atop the division with an extended week of relaxation, the Ravens must do some soul looking out. At this level, we shouldn’t be nervous in regards to the league “determining” the Ravens, however extra so, the Ravens with the ability to discover themselves. To this point, the Ravens are a crew with no id aside from Lamar Jackson. The crew is struggling to discover a formulation that’s constantly efficient. Whereas that’s robust to seek out within the NFL interval, the Ravens could also be making progress. After an abysmal first half on offense, primarily throwing the ball, the Ravens went into the twond half decided to ascertain the run. And that they did! The Ravens tallied up essentially the most speeding yards in a single half to this point this season! Who would’ve thought!
After taking just a few massive hits damage smart, Mark Andrews & Rashod Bateman being the headliners, the Ravens must reap the benefits of the prolonged relaxation interval to get wholesome. However within the meantime, Isaiah Seemingly seems as much as the duty. The younger rookie out of Coastal Carolina caught six of seven targets for 77 yards and his first NFL landing (and a clutch TD, at that!)
Whereas we hope that the accidents are minor and quick lived, it is going to be thrilling to observe the Ravens gifted depth get their shot! For the reason that Ravens are already finished for the week, let’s have a look at another fantasy choices!
Sleepin’ across the league
Goff has been fairly horrendous because the damage to Amon-Ra St. Brown. In these two video games, Goff has scored a complete of lower than 11 fantasy factors. I count on him to get again on observe this week with a totally wholesome receiving core and the return of D’Andre Swift in opposition to Miami. It’s no secret that the Miami protection has been pretty beneficiant to QBs & receivers this season. The Dolphins rank 22nd in move protection and let up the 5th most fantasy factors to opposing QBs. on high of that, the Lions are projected a wholesome 24 factors this week in opposition to Miami and are four-point house underdogs. The sport script ought to be excellent for Goff and with a totally loaded arsenal. Goff is a secure play this week in case your QB is injured or has a bye.
We’re sticking with the Lions – Dolphins sport once more. It ought to be fantasy gold. Coming off of a pleasant Week 7 efficiency in opposition to the Steelers, I count on Mostert to be even higher this week. As we talked about with Goff, the sport script shall be excellent for Mostert. Add on the truth that the Lions are a backside of the barrel protection throughout the board, the matchup is nice. Particularly for opposing RBs. The Lions are useless final in speeding protection and let up essentially the most fantasy factors to RBs within the league. I additionally count on to see a bit much less of Chase Edmonds this week given the truth that the Dolphins actually gained’t want his move catching talents this sport. Particularly with Tua taking part in in his 2nd sport again from the concussion, the rust ought to be knocked off and this offense shall be deadly. I’m beginning Mostert over a few of my high choices this week. BIG week incoming.
With CMC shipped off to San Fran, final week’s sport indicated that Moore shall be way more concerned. And the way cant he? When you’re previous Moore, the remainder of the depth chart isn’t attractive. P.J. Walker isn’t precisely the sexiest of choices both. I count on Walker to proceed to depend on their finest receiver. It isn’t like Moore was by no means concerned both. He has retained a big share of the targets season lengthy. Recording a 28% goal share and 25% share within the pink zone. Then we have a look at Atlanta, who permits the twond most fantasy factors throughout the board and essentially the most fantasy factors to WRs. To not point out as an entire, that is the second worst protection within the league, together with in opposition to the move. I’m not seeking to begin him over my high choices, however he’s a good flex play should you want one.
Smith is a scary choice, as he’s solely cleared double digit fantasy factors as soon as this season. However its change into obvious that Smith is a man that the Vikings scheme in or out of video games, relying on if the matchup. The rule with tight ends final yr, rings true once more this season. Begin the tight ends that play Arizona!! The Cardinals rank 1st in total rush protection, however 21st in move protection. Which isn’t horrible. BUT, their weak point but once more is in opposition to the TE place, the place they rank 2nd in fantasy factors allowed to TEs. This ought to be a excessive scoring sport (Vikings projected to attain 26 factors) and the Vikings might want to move to maintain up with the Cardinals doubtlessly harmful offense. Huge Irv has the very best matchup on this sport and I count on the Vikings to take advantage of that. I’m not saying that Justin Jefferson or Adam Thielen may have notably dangerous video games, however Irv shall be within the combine this week. There are positively worse streaming choices.
