SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL SHOWDOWN: RAVENS AT CHARGERS

Ravens (25.5) AT Chargers (22.5)

QB

Lamar Jackson and the Ravens travel to LA off a mini-bye week as they played last Thursday. Jackson is priced back up for this game at 12K flat after the 10.8 tag last Thursday. This is a great spot for this Ravens offense versus a defense that has struggled mightily this year. Jackson has been active in the ground game again this year and should get 40-50 yards rushing here fairly easily again. I will be overweight on him in the Captain and lock him in the Flex. I have him 4 points clear of anyone else on this slate. LJ has a rush/pass prop of 282.5 and is +150 to score a touchdown.

Justin Herbert 11K has also been using his legs more this year rushing for 15+ yards in 5/7 games with 73 yards rushing last week at Green Bay. Justin has played best at home this year with only 4 wins they are in must-win mode if they want to make a playoff push. I would lean toward only playing Herbert in the Flex spot and could see myself underweight on him at 11K if I want to jam Lamar. The Ravens defense has been tough this year as only 1 QB has scored 20+ DK points vs them this year. Herbert has a pass/rush prop of 271.5.

RB

Gus Edwards 8.6K and Keaton Mitchell 6.8K led one of the best rushing attacks in the league. It will be tough to roster Gus with his elevated tag but I do want to keep taking shots on the upside Mitchell brings. He was close to breaking off another big run but slipped. Gus Edwards has been all positive TD variance as he has now scored 8 touchdowns in the last 4 games. I will be slightly underweight on him tonight and side with the speedster on the fast track tonight. Rushing/receiving props for Edwards is 57.5 yards and Mitchell has a 53.5 yard prop and should be lower owned.

Austin Ekeler was a guy I had an interest in last week in GPPs who struggled once again on the ground. Ekeler is yet to rush for 70+ yards this season but has a solid pass-game role. Ekeler projects to be around 50-60% owned tonight and around 10-15% in the Captain spot. I will have him at around 10% in the Captain and then will see how much I get in the sims for the Flex spot. Kelley at 3.4K looks to be a thin flex play as I feel he should be priced closer to 2K. Ekeler has a rush/rec prop of 84.5 yards and is -135 to score a touchdown.

WR

The Ravens WR room is tough to pinpoint as the projections always like Flowers but at 8K he hasn’t topped 12 DK points in 5 weeks. He has the upside to be in the Captain pool but I will only play around 5-8% of him at Captain. OBJ is 6.2K this week and is expected to play tonight. He has double-digit fantasy points in 3 straight games and caught 4 for 116 last week vs Cincy. Beckham is more of a Flex option for me tonight. Bateman 4K and Agholor 2.2K are a couple of other Flex plays I will look to get overweight on tonight. Bateman should be around 25%, while Agholor should come in around 10%. Receiving props are Flowers 62.5, Beckham 39.5, and Bateman 27.5 yards.

Keenan Allen 11.2K is back to his high usage off back-to-back games with 10+ catches on 30 total targets. Allen is my preferred Captain option from the Chargers and will be overweight in the Flex position as well. Quentin Johnson is finally fairly priced for a showdown slate at 3K flat. I am not a big fan of Johnson as he just hasn’t been able to translate into the NFL yet but is fine for a cheap flex option. Jalen Guyton didn’t register a stat last week vs Green Bay but is a solid cheapie. Derius Davis is another GPP punt option for LA at 1K flat. Receiving props are, Allen 86.5, Johnson 24.5, and Guyton 27.5 yards.

TE

Isaiah Likely will have to step up once again for Mark Andrews and is priced at 5.2K tonight. Likely has filled in well when asked to and gets a very good matchup here. LA has allowed the TE position to score at least 12 DK points in the last 4 games and 17 in 3 of the 4. Charlie Kolar is a fine punt option tonight at $600 saw 1 target last week and should also be asked to step up tonight. Likely has a prop of 31.5 yards tonight.

Gerald Everett and Donald Parham man the position for LA. Everett is listed as questionable but is expected to suit up tonight. Both are in the mid-4 K range and will be flex options at best for me tonight. Props for Everett are 23.5 yards and Parham 15.5 yards.

DEF/K

Both defenses are cheap tonight at 4.2 and 3.8K and I will have both in the Flex pool and higher on the Ravens side. Baltimore has put up 12+ in 3 of 6 games and at least 6 points in all but 2 games this year. They have 6 interceptions and 26 sacks in the last 6 games. I will limit my exposure to LA defense to around 15%. Both kickers are great options and will be overweight on both in the Flex spot.
