The Kansas City Chiefs are coming to Baltimore in a battle of MVP quarterbacks. Last year the match up was a high scoring affair any fantasy football owner would love. Here’s predictions for how this years match up can go.
In last years game the Ravens lost to the Chiefs 33-28. The Ravens started slow out of the gate, but Lamar Jackson was able to rally the team back to cut it close. Each quarterback accounted for over 300 yards in total offense and created highlight plays with their arms and legs alike. These two quarterbacks are the two most recent MVP’s and this is a battle of the future of the NFL.
In order for this years game to be classified as a success for Jackson, he must improve from last years game. The passing game was just off. Entering this week Jackson has been on fire this season and has paired his legs with an accurate arm. Mahomes had a great game last season, but he has struggled this season. Although they are 2-0, Mahomes and the Chiefs struggled against the Los Angeles Chargers and if that game is any indication of how this week will go then the Ravens will have the upper hand.
In what is expected to be quarterbacks dual, don’t be surprised if this game becomes a little defensive and run focused. The Ravens and Chiefs both would prefer to not let the opposing offense onto the field and will probably try to control the time of possession. This game could come down to the big plays that the quarterbacks can make. Both of these guys can make very big plays and if they are on there A-game, then this game could become the high scoring dual many want it to be. To not start one of these guys is risky, so get ready for the ride on Monday Night and enjoy watching the talent on the field battle.
Lamar Jackson- 275 Passing yards, two passing touchdown, one interception, 50 rushing yards = 24 Fantasy points
Patrick Mahomes- 325 Passing yards, three passing touchdowns, one interceptions, 15 rushing yards = 24.5 Fantasy points
