Baltimore Ravens stock report: Who’s Hot, Who’s Not week 4
The Baltimore Ravens bounced back vs. the Washington Football Team after a bad loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Who’s hot, who’s not entering week five?
Week two the Baltimore Ravens had a huge bounce-back win 31-17 against the Washington Football Team. With lots to break down from this game, many players are hot and some are not entering Week fives matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals
The Ravens highest-paid player for this season finally racked up his first two sacks. Coach Harbaugh said that he finally was playing free and it showed. The Taco Bell favorite finally had the game the defense has been needing. As the team’s franchise player he is supposed to be a big-time edge setter for the team. The additions of Derek Wolfe and Calais Campbell was supposed to help give Judon more one on one opportunities and he finally hit home.
For Judon, he has been a player who has been very reliable since being drafted, but this year is his year to prove he deserves big money. Like pass rushers from the past like Pernell McPhee, Za’Darius Smith, and Paul Kruger, Judon can have his big breakout year to get a lucrative contract. But what Judon has done thus far shows he’s worth it regardless of sack totals.
Judon is an edge rusher by trade but can also drop into coverage and set the edge to stop the run. He is a true three-down player and a good player for the locker room. Judon also uses a lot of different pass rush moves with success which makes him an even more dangerous linebacker. In this game, he found success with his quick first step and his speed rush, his bull rush, and his rip move. He also can play with his hand in the dirt and standing up; and is a very adept rusher on stunts and twists. The combination of him and Calais Campbell is very hard for one side of an offensive line to block.
Moving forward, more games like this is necessary. Judon needs to play free and let the game come to him. With a matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals coming up and their offensive line being youthful, there’s another game on the horizon where Judon can stand out. Look for Judon to continue hot as he’s fighting to earn a very large contract.
