Ravens fantasy outlook vs. the Titans

Here's this week's Ravens fantasy projections.

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Start 'em

Joe Flacco: Flacco has not had a great past couple of weeks. However, jump on the bandwagon this week if you're starting quarterback is on a bye. In games against teams with a pulse (this excludes Jacksonville and Washington), the Titans have given up an average of 28.1 points per game. Brian Hoyer threw for 291 yards and three touchdowns against this group. Flacco should have a good game Sunday.

Steve Smith: See Flacco. Smith should be able to get back on track this week with a Ravens squad trying to get back on track.

Justin Forsett: Even though he hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 5, Forsett has been valuable because of his dual-threat ability. In PPR formats, he can accrue catches and he's the best option at picking up a big gain on the ground. Continue to roll with Forsett this week.

K Justin Tucker: No explanation needed.

WR Torrey Smith: He better fits an in between category, perhaps. You don't want to start him, but if you have no other option at the position, you could do worse. He had a 35-yard touchdown a week ago and has been more of a factor of late, besides his goose egg performance against Cincinnati.

Sit 'em

I'm actually bullish on the Ravens against the Titans this week, so there are no players to be mentioned here.


Ravens D/ST: The Ravens looked horrible a week ago as Ben Roethlisberger shredded the secondary for six more touchdowns. However, Elvis Dumervil could exploit his matchup with right tackle Michael Oher. The Ravens could pick up a bunch of sacks on rookie Zach Mettenberger and make things difficult for the Titans' offense.

TE Owen Daniels: Daniels didn't seem to have any ill effects from his knee procedure a week ago. Daniels could be a sneaky play as a bye-week fill-in.

RB Lorenzo Taliaferro: This is only a play for deep leagues or if you're desperate. He's not much of a threat to pick up big yardage with Forsett getting the majority of the carries, but he could get some goal line looks. He's a very touchdown-dependent play.
