Fantasy Football: Ravens outlook for week three match vs Broncos
The Ravens defense surely let Ravens fans, and fantasy football owners everywhere, down last week. The Bengals offense was unstoppable and A.J. Green (unsurprisingly) crushed the Ravens defense. The defense also failed to record any significant defensive stats (i.e. sacks, turnovers, etc.). Talk about a massive turnaround from a domination of the Bills to simply rolling over vs the Bengals.
Worse yet, the Ravens could be without C.J. Mosley this week, the captain of the entire defense. This could wind up being a massive blow to the defense, especially with the play of Denver’s two stud rookie running backs, Royce Freeman and Phillip Lindsay.
But with that being said, the Broncos offense remains underwhelming at best. Case Keenum has reverted back to being an average quarterback, and he will continue to hold back the Broncos offense. This bodes well for a Baltimore defense that is likely starving for a rebound.
Despite losing Mosley, the Ravens still have great pass rushers and a secondary that can match-up well with Denver’s weapons. The Broncos offensive line isn’t anything special which could help the Ravens defense get back into the sack category. Keenum has more interceptions than touchdowns this season, so hopefully he keeps up this trend and helps the Ravens get some much needed turnovers.
With a dominant defensive performance, this will lead to plenty of opportunities for fantasy football darling Justin Tucker. The more points the better for Tucker, and less points for Denver the better for this defense. Look for a rebound performance this week to remind everyone why the Ravens defense received so much praise headed into 2018.
Projection: 14-20 points allowed, four sacks, two interceptions
