Stock up: Lardarius Webb
Amid rumors that he might be a cap casualty in 2015, Lardarius Webb desperately needed to get on the field and make something happen. After a relatively poor showing in week five, Webb had a very solid game against the Bucs and their trio of big pass catchers. Webb was targeted five times and allowed three receptions for 27 yards and almost had an interception.
It was an encouraging performance that couldn’t have come at a better time. With Webb making $5 million this year and set to make $8 million next year, he needs to prove he can stay healthy and be productive if he has any shot of seeing that money in 2015. And the Ravens desperately need him to play well opposite Jimmy Smith, because they don’t have anybody else who is even close in talent.
