Ravens Featured on Top 20 Fantasy Lists

New, comments

On NFL.com, the Baltimore Ravens had representatives on the Top 20 lists for every position, according to their Fantasy Expert panel. Of course the Ravens defense was right up there near the top in third place, right behind the New York Jets and Minnesota Vikings at numbers one and two, respectively.

Even third year QB Joe Flacco made the list, coming in surprisingly as the 11th ranked QB on their fantasy list, ahead of former Pro Bowlers such as Donovan McNabb, Matt Ryan and Carson Palmer.

Ray Rice was an impressive fourth RB listed, behind such fantasy beasts, such as (in order from 1st-3rd) Minnesota Viking Adrian Peterson, Tennessee Titan Chris Johnson, and Jacksonville Jaguar Maurice Jones-Drew.

Flacco's emergence and rising value on this list is arguably due to the acquisition of WR Anquan Boldin, who stays on the list despite leaving the pass happy Arizona Cardinals, coming in as the 16th best receiver according to the panel. Even the Ravens tight end, Todd Heap, hung in there to grab the 19th of 20 spots under the tight end category. By the time the team's two rookies, Ed Dickson and Dennis Pitta finish the season, that ranking could surely change and still include a Raven though.

Current, but not definitely future Ravens' placekicker, Shayne Graham actually came in at number 15 on the kickers list, but incumbent Billy Cundiff is where to be seen in the top 20. Click here to see the full listings.
