MATCHUP SUMMARY 

The Steelers arrive coming off a huge win verse the Browns in what was Big Ben’s final home game. Now they must come back to reality and once again get up for a huge game with playoff implications on the line. Both teams have a chance to make the playoffs but only the winner will survive. In addition the winner will need help from other teams in order to make the playoffs. I expect both teams to play at a high level in what should be a good game. 

The Ravens secondary is bad and if the Steelers want to win they must get the ball downfield. Ben can’t continue to throw 3-5 yard dink passes every attempt. He must be successful in the 15-25 yard range with a few deeper hits as that is where the Ravens really struggle. Diontae Johnson is a cash lock and solid GPP play due to his volume. Chase Claypool is the pivot and is due for the random high volume target game. Najee Harris isn’t my favorite since the Ravens still do well against the run.

Lamar Jackson is questionable so keep an eye on his news but either way the Ravens are in solid hands with Tyler Huntley. He has filled in admirably showing he can be affective with the offense. DeVonta Freeman should play a big role since the Steelers have struggled against the run. He sets up well for this game. Mark Andrews is always a threat and has good rapport with Huntley. He cooled off last week and wasn’t very productive in the teams first matchup meaning he might come in lower owned.

 

THE DFS GEMS  

Chase Claypool, Steelers- $5,100.  Chase is due for a big game and if Ben gets the ball downfield he is a solid candidate. He makes for a great pivot in a game we’re he could score twice and go for 100 yards. 

Mark Andrews, Ravens- $7,500.  Andrews has showed he can have big games with Huntley behind center. If the Ravens win it’s likely due to a big game from him. 

Devonta Freeman, Ravens- $5,200. The Steelers are bad against the run and Freeman has shown to still run hard. He has been solid but hasn’t had that huge game. On paper this game sets up well for a 20+ point effort.
