Baltimore Ravens Flock bold predictions: Buy or sell
Prediction 4: Lamar Jackson accounts for more touchdowns than any of the AFC North quarterbacks. (Isaiah Strumpf @Isaiah410_)
My Opinion: Sell
Baker Mayfield had passing 28 touchdowns last season. Ben Roethlisberger had 32 passing touchdowns. I think 28 or higher is a little rich of a prediction. I want to buy this, because nobody is more of a Jackson supporter than I am. I have to sell. As stated earlier in this post, 25 touchdowns seems to be a good number to land on. That’s not enough to lead the respectable AFC North quarterbacks.
Prediction 5: Hayden Hurst leads tight ends with yards and receptions (I assume this is among only the Ravens tight ends). ( Ian Schultz @Iandshchultz)
My Opinion: Sell
Hayden Hurst having a strong season wouldn’t surprise me. I had him as my second best tight end going into the 2018 NFL Draft and have always been high on his potential. Hurst started his rookie season with an injury. This should be a better season for him. The problem with this prediction is that Mark Andrews is going into the season poised to be the number one target at the tight end position. I think both players take a leap this season, but Andrews is leaping from a point ahead of Hurst.
Prediction 6: Mark Ingram leads all AFC North running backs with yards from scrimmage (@michaelhaddad02)
My Opinion: Buy
This is a prediction that I am buying 100 percent. The Ravens will require more of their running backs than any team in the NFL, let alone the AFC North. Ben Roethlisberger is what makes the Steelers offense go, even though James Connor is an impressive running back. Nick Chubb and Joe Mixon may give Ingram a run for his money. The thing that makes this prediction so solid is the words “from scrimmage.” Ingram is going to surprise people with how much he makes an impact as a receiver out of the backfield. He will have over 1,000 rushing yards. He might just rack up a good number of receiving yards as well. This is a top-notch prediction.
