Ravens: Week 8 Fantasy Football Preview and Predictions

6 of 7

“You should SIT the Ravens Defense/ST unit.”

Predictions: 1 Sack, 1 INT, 24 points allowed

In case you missed it, the Green Bay Packers allowed Philip Rivers to throw for over 500 yards in week 6. The Ravens defense is a unit that you want to trust won’t allow that to happen, but the last 7 weeks have told a different story.

The Ravens defense is struggling to get takeaways and  against opposing passers. The Ravens are ranked 28th in pass defense, which is an area that the Chargers may take full advantage of. Hopefully, that approach will open up some opportunities for sacks and turnovers, again an area where this defensive unit has struggled thus far.

It’s a risk if you decide to start them, but the reward could pay off if all the stars align in Ravens Nation. But I’d still sit them until they find their rhythm. This may be that game where they do.
