The rookie had his best game as a pro last week at Cleveland, completing 17-of-29 passes for 248 yards and two TDs. He was accurate on several long throws as the Ravens rallied back from a 27-13 deficit to win 37-27. The Ravens won't throw as much this week at Houston, so temper your enthusiasm and keep Flacco on the bench for Week 10.
McGahee was active last week at Cleveland, but he didn't play because of lingering ankle and knee injuries. He is expected to play this week, but he will likely share carries with Ray Rice and LeRon McClain as the Ravens try to pound the ball on the ground. He's a very iffy play now that the Ravens have a three-headed backfield.
The rookie was dominant at Cleveland last week, filling in for McGahee and rushing 21 times for 134 yards, while adding 22 yards on three receptions. He will share carries with McGahee and McClain this week, but he still has value as a Flex play because Houston ranks 23rd against the run and Baltimore will exploit that with all three rushers.
McClain had 14 carries for 34 yards and a TD last week at Cleveland, his fifth rushing TD of the season. He's not fantasy worthy at this point, but he will get his share of carries this week on the road.
Mason had his best game of the season last week at Cleveland, catching nine passes for 136 yards and a TD. It was only his second TD catch of the season, but he does have 43 catches for 557 yards and is on pace for another 1,000-yard season. Mason has six or more catches in three of the last four games and will be the top target this week at Houston, so start him again.
Clayton set the tone in last week's game at Cleveland by catching a 47-yard TD strike in the first quarter, laying out perfectly for the grab in the end zone. He finished with a season-high four catches for 87 yards, but it's tough to count on this going forward. Be happy with last week's totals, but don't expect it again this week.
Rosenfels will be the starting QB for the Texans over the next 2-4 games because Matt Schaub is out with a torn MCL. Rosenfels relieved Schaub last week at Minnesota and completed 21-of-29 passes for 224 yards and two TDs. He's a solid bye-week fill-in, but the Ravens' defense can just as easily eat him up as well. It ranks fourth against the pass and will give Rosenfels all kinds of trouble, so be careful.
Slaton was the full-time back last week at Minnesota with Ahman Green inactive and he came through with 62 yards on 16 rushes and 56 yards on eight receptions. He will likely be used in a similar role this week, and although the rushing yards will be limited, his total yards will make him a worthy starting play in Week 10.
Green was inactive last week with an assortment of injuries and remains questionable for this week. The Texans need a backup for Slaton as the Ravens rank first against the run, allowing just 2.8 yards per carry and 64.2 yards rushing per game. Forget about Green this week, even if he is active as expected.
The Vikings did a great job of limiting Johnson last week as he finished with just four catches for 62 yards and a TD. He got most of that after halftime as Rosenfels targeted him more often, even resulting in a late 14-yard TD strike. The Ravens will defend him the same way, but at home Johnson will post numbers more in line before the Minnesota game.
Walter caught four passes for 47 yards last week at Minnesota, but was held without a TD grab for the fifth time this year. He faces another tough matchup in Baltimore and likely won't find the end zone again.
Daniels posted a career-high 11 catches for 133 yards last week at Minnesota, catching eight passes after halftime. He's having a standout season, and even with just two TD receptions, is a must play for any team that awards points for receptions. Look for more realistic production this week vs. Baltimore, but he's still a worthy top-5 TE at this point.
Jacques Reeves scored a TD on a 44-yard interception last week at Minnesota, their first score of the season. The Texans have just six interceptions, five forced fumbles and just 14 sacks in eight games and this week's production will likely be limited again.
