Start: WR Zay Flowers (BAL)

Flowers is not an under-the-radar player anymore. He's not Puka Nacua, obviously, but he's been absolutely fantastic in his first two games as a pro in Baltimore.

The former Boston College standout was expected to take snaps at the slot position more often than not and while that's been the case (64 slot snaps against 46 outside) the truth is that the split isn't that extreme so far. That might change today, for the good.

With the Ravens facing a Colts defense that boasts their best players in the defensive line and has one of the best blitzing figures through Week 2, Lamar could find himself throwing quick, short passes. Flowers is a slot maven and will benefit a ton, same as TE Mark Andrews.

The total yardage under those circumstances and play calls might not end up being so large and will depend on Flowers' YAC, but it's not that he doesn't know how to leave defenders biting the dust.

Also, don't forget that Flowers can always run a go route any minute and rack up a huge chunk of yards in a single swoop, which he already did against the Bengals last weekend grabbing a rainbow for 52 yards downfield. The Colts secondary isn't anything otherworldly, so I expect that to happen today again.
