Ravens Week 6 Fantasy Football Preview and Predictions
Week 6 brings to you, The Baltimore Ravens versus the San Francisco 49ers.
The last time these two teams met (minus that preseason meeting where the Ravens won 23-3), it was the Ravens who emerged victorious and held the Lombardi trophy high after Super Bowl XLVII.

That was almost three years ago and with a totally different personnel than the Ravens you see today. In fact, how ironic and bittersweet it will be to play against two current 49ers, but former Super Bowl champion Ravens, Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith.
As of today, only Joe Flacco, Marshal Yanda, Kelechi Osemele, Dennis Pitta, Jimmy Smith, Lardarius Webb, Asa Jackson, Terrell Suggs, Courtney Upshaw, Albert McClellan, Morgan Cox, Sam Koch and Justin Tucker remain from the 53-man roster that suited up and won Super Bowl XLVII.
I’ve said all of that to say this:
The two teams who will meet on Sunday at 4:25pm EST are not the same teams that competed for the Lombardi trophy in Super Bowl XLVII. So with that out of the way, let’s not expect a Super Bowl performance. What we have are two teams who were once Super Bowl participants, but are now struggling to win and searching for just their 2nd win in 6 games of this season.
So knowing that, let’s look at our Ravens best and decide on who to start and who to sit.
