It’s Purple Friday Ravens fans. It’s also Fantasy Football Friday:
Here we go again fantasy football fans, back for another Fantasy Football Friday preview! And boy, do we have a match-up this week.The 2-0 Ravens go to Arrowhead and face off against the 2-0 Chiefs. This is the game of the season so far. Obviously we knew the Chiefs were going to have one of the top offenses in the league this year with reigning MVP Patrick Mahomes and company.
What we didn’t expect though, is the Ravens having the number 1 offense in the league through two weeks, even better than mighty Kansas City. Lead by sophomore sensation Lamar Jackson, the Ravens look to avenge their only regular seasons loss from last year while Lamar was QB. Buckle up folks, this game should live up to the hype and could be even better than last year’s overtime thriller.
There will be fantasy points galore in this game. Pretty much every Raven or Chief on your roster should be starting this week. For the Ravens their big 4 on offense, Lamar Jackson, Mark Ingram, Hollywood Brown, and Mark Andrews should be in all fantasy lineups.
For the Chiefs, their no brainer starts are Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce, and Sammy Watkins. Demarcus Robinson and Mecole Hardman might be worth a look at a flex play this week as well. However, with injuries to Damien Williams and LeSean McCoy, plus the Ravens stout run-defense, I would keep Kansas City running backs on your benches.
Since pretty much everyone I stated above will be in all lineups, I’ll be doing over/under this week to predict how many fantasy points each player will score. The scoring projections I’ll be using are from .5 PPR scoring format leagues on ESPN.
