I hope you listened to my advice on starting Lamar Jackson and Mark Ingram last week. Jackson was the number one Fantasy Football quarterback on the week with his perfect, five touchdown performance. Ingram was an animal on the ground racking up over 100-yards and two touchdowns. I was wrong however, about sitting Ravens wide receivers. Hollywood Brown was quickly made his presence felt in his NFL debut as he went off for 147-yards and 2 touchdowns.
The Ravens won’t put up 59 points or play the Dolphins every game, but their new offense will be Fantasy Football friendly all year. They also get another fantastic match-up this week against the Arizona Cardinals at home.
The Cardinals are coming off a tie to the Lions where they let up 477 total yards. Matthew Stafford looked like a viable Fantasy Football quarterback again versus this leaky Arizona defense, as well as rookie tight end T.J. Hockenson ran wild in the secondary all game. This bodes well for the Ravens as I expect another big outing from their offense in week two.
Before I get into the starts and sits, I want to say that Lamar Jackson and Mark Ingram are must-starts until further notice. Jackson should be a top-five quarterback most weeks, while Ingram is a rock-solid RB2 with upside for more. Now, let’s get into who else should be in your line-up or not this week.
