Ravens: Week 8 Fantasy Football Preview and Predictions

1 of 7

FINALLY…… the Baltimore Ravens….. have come back……. HOME!

It’s the last game of the first half of the Ravens season before heading into the bye week. In just their 3rd home game in 8 weeks, it’s a home game against the San Diego Chargers. A game that brings to Ravens fans two homecomings. One being that Ray Lewis will be in attendance as the “Legend of the Game.” The other…. Jacoby Jones, but as a member of the San Diego Chargers.

But hey, we’re here to talk fantasy football.

Yes the Ravens are 1-7 and have lost 7 games by 7 points or less. The elephant is out of the room. Heading into week 8, here’s an “owned and started” analysis of the top 5 Baltimore Ravens fantasy players courtesy of NFL.com:

Compared to last week’s analysis, Justin Forsett gained more fantasy pick ups and starts heading into this week’s matchup against the San Diego Chargers. Justin Tucker surprisingly has seen some small changes in the wrong direction, but is still overall a strong option to own and start overall.

Flacco has seen some positive growth in pickups as well and there’s a good reason for that. So with that said, here’s who you should sit, and who you should start for this week 8 matchup against the San Diego Chargers.

Next: Start or Sit Joe Flacco?
