M&T Bank Stadium | Sunday, September 26 | 1:00 p.m. EST (CBS)
Pick: Ravens 24, Browns 6
125 pass yards, 25 rush yards, 2 INTWith reports that Jake Delhomme likely has a high-ankle sprain, Seneca Wallace looks in line for another start. Wallace had a costly turnover last week against the Chiefs, and he's up against a fuming Ravens defense.
1 rec, 10 rec yards, 35 rush yardsHarrison continues to split carries with Peyton Hillis, and this week he has to go up against one of the game's best front sevens.
1 rec, 5 rec yards, 30 rush yardsHillis' emergence as a factor in the running game has certainly surprised many. Still, Jerome Harrison has more upside and this week's matchup isn't a good one.
4 rec, 50 yardsMassaquoi has a ton of upside when Jake Delhomme or Seneca Wallace can get him the ball consistently. Otherwise, his big fantasy potential goes mostly unrealized in a bad offense.
3 rec, 40 yardsCribbs gets a value boost in leagues that offer a slot for kick returners, and his 74-yard output last week was encouraging. He's the definition of boom-or-bust.
2 rec, 20 yardsWatson is technically the team's starter at tight end, though Evan Moore has been involved in the passing game as well. Watson can't be counted on as a consistent producer at tight end.
2 FGsThe Browns offense should have a tough time moving against the Ravens, which doesn't give Dawson much upside this week.
2 sacks, 1 INTThe Browns enjoyed moderate success in slowing down the Ravens running game last season but gave up 342 yards passing to Joe Flacco in Week 3. Anyway, there are a lot of better options out there.
215 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 1 INTFlacco enjoyed a big game against the Browns in Week 3 last season before a nagging hip injury began to hinder his performance. Just hope his atrocious performance last week against the Bengals was an aberration.
5 rec, 50 rec yards, 115 rush yards, 1 rush TDRice didn't put up great numbers against the Browns last season but it's still hard to not like this matchup. The Ravens' offensive line should open plenty of holes.
25 rush yards, 1 rush TDMcGahee's status is the same as always. He's valuable if he finds the end zone from the goal line. Otherwise, he should stay on your bench.
4 rec, 60 yards, 1 TDBoldin is quickly emerging as Joe Flacco's favorite target. Flacco carved the Browns for 342 yards in their first meeting last season. A similar performance would mean big dividends for Boldin.
3 rec, 45 yardsMason will continue to see No. 2 targets, and his status as an underneath receiver doesn't provide a lot of fantasy upside.
3 rec, 35 yardsHoush should match up well against the Browns, but he's still the Ravens third option in the passing game.
2 rec, 25 yardsHow he holds up is a concern, but when healthy Heap sees a lot action in the passing game. See his 11 targets against the Jets in Week 1. After Anquan Boldin, Joe Flacco has thrown at Heap the most, making him a safe option this week.
3 PATs, 1 FGCundiff has so far proven accurate. He'll need his offense to step up and give him more opportunities, however.
5 sacks, 2 INT, 3 FumblesThe Browns' bruising running attack plays right into the Ravens' strength on defense and a pedestrian corps of receivers shouldn't trouble a weakened secondary too much.
