Playoff implications are on the line for the Baltimore Ravens. If the Ravens don’t want to be eliminated from the race, they need to take care of business against the Eagles.
The Baltimore Ravens need to start this game fast and actually show up. The Offense needs to work as a team and make plays. They can’t have anymore letdowns for the rest of the season, or else they will be watching the playoffs from home.

If John Harbaugh wants to keep his job, he needs to have his team ready even though it’s a short week. Here are the Baltimore Ravens and Philadelphia Eagles players that you should start and sit this week in your Fantasy Football Leagues.
Philadelphia Eagles to sit:
Sproles has been out all week due to a concussion. He took a nasty shot while trying to catch a punt in last weeks ago. With that, it doesn’t look like Sproles will play.
Jordan Matthews has been a disappointment for the Eagles since being drafted by them in the 2nd Round of the 2014 draft. He won’t be able to get any separation this week as the Ravens secondary will be pissed off after the way they played on Monday Night.
Philadelphia Eagles to start:
Ertz is having a solid season for the Eagles. You could say that he’s Carson Wentz’s security blanket. So far this season he’s caught 57 receptions with two touchdowns.
It doesn’t hurt that he’s a big target for Wentz.
With Sproles not practicing all week, expect Mathews to carry the load on Sunday. He’s a big running back just like LeGarrette Blount. As you saw, Blount had a very good game against the Ravens so Mathews should be able to as well.
Baltimore Ravens to sit vs the Eagles:
It looks to me like Terrance West has been overtaken on the depth chart by Kenneth Dixon. I saw more of Dixon on Monday night and I think it’s because West hasn’t been as productive.
Is it an injury that has kept West from playing up to his potential, or is he just not as good. Either way, I’d sit West this week.
Dennis Pitta still hasn’t has two solid weeks in a row, but I still think he’s worried about injuring himself again. Don’t get me wrong, he’s had a good season after missing almost two with the hip injury, but I still think he’s hesitant out on the field.
Baltimore Ravens to start vs the Eagles:
Dixon is going to be a star in this league. He’s only a rookie, but his feet never stop moving. He’s got quick feet so at any given moment he can bust out a long run.
It’s going to be great to see him for a whole season next year if he remains healthy. Once we see him for a full season, he might end up making the Pro Bowl.
Steve Smith Sr.:
Smith is due to have a monster game. He’s been shut down as of late, but I think he’s pissed off now.
You never want to play against a pissed off Steve Smith Sr. If the Ravens make the playoffs, it’s going to be because Steve Smith Sr. did everything he could to help them.
