Baltimore Ravens: Week one Fantasy Football predictions
Week 1 is approaching and the Baltimore Ravens matchup vs the Cleveland Browns is on the horizon. Here’s what to expect from a Fantasy Football perspective.
Analysis– Last season when these teams met twice the Ravens and the Browns both threw the ball at least 30 times and scored a combined total points of at least 48. In this season’s opener, look for nothing different. Between Baker Mayfield and Lamar Jackson, this game will feature two former first-round picks looking to battle. With another year with a talented receiving core, Mayfield should improve on his disastrous 2019 season, while Jackson looks to follow up his MVP performance.
Against these defenses, Jackson and the Ravens have the advantage on paper. With the same coaching staff and core, Jackson should be able to manage a preseason-less game and find his targets. In the process, he should make a few highlights of his own with his legs. Mayfield on the other hand will be reliant on his running game being effective to help balance their passing game. If they don’t get started running the ball, he and the Browns will be one-dimensional and that is a recipe for disaster for them in this game.
Lamar Jackson- 22-33 passing, 240 passing yards, three passing touchdowns, one interception, 60 rushing yards
Baker Mayfield- 20-34 passing, 225 passing yards, two touchdowns, two interceptions, one fumble, 15 rushing yards
