Ravens fantasy advice: Start/sit/sleepers

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

Entering a Monday night showdown, here's which Ravens players you should consider starting this week.

Start 'em

WR Torrey Smith: The weather is finally won't be a factor, since this game is in a dome, and the Lions' secondary is beatable. If he's one of your top two receivers on your roster, go for it.

TE Dennis Pitta: He had six catches for 48 yards and a touchdown on less than 50 percent of the offense's snaps. Expect those snaps to increase this week and for Pitta to be a popular target in the passing game.

K Justin Tucker: In a controlled environment, Tucker should get plenty of chances to kick this week.

Sit 'em

Ravens D/ST: Assuming Reggie Bush plays, the Lions' offense has too many weapons to be confident that the Ravens' defense will post enough points to make you happy. You can probably find a better option in the free agent pool.

RB Ray Rice: The Lions don't have a great defense but the front four is stout. Rice had a decent game against Minnesota but that could change back to where he was prior to that on Monday.

RB Bernard Pierce: See above.

Sleepers

WRs Marlon Brown and Jacoby Jones: Jones is capable of catching a deep pass for a touchdown. Brown is emerging into the Ravens' top red zone threat and has six receiving touchdowns this year. Both could be sneaky flex plays this week.

QB Joe Flacco: He's in a dome and he's gaining confidence. With the Lions boasting a tough front four, the Ravens could ask Flacco to throw the ball around quite a bit Monday night.
