Georgia Dome | Thursday, November 11 | 8:20 p.m. EST (NFL)
Pick: Ravens 23, Falcons 20
250 pass yards, 2 pass TDThe Falcons have been giving up passing yards in chunks this season, which should bode well for Flacco. The Ravens moved the ball methodically last week against what was a Top-10 pass defense in the Dolphins.
5 rec, 40 rec yards, 55 rush yardsOwners should be relieved to see Rice get involved in the passing game again, solidifying him as one of the safest running backs in fantasy. He should continue to thrive in a balanced Ravens offense.
2 rec, 20 rec yards, 25 rush yardsMcGahee saw nine touches this week, so he does have some fantasy value. Unless you're desperate on a bye, starting McGahee is a major gamble. He does have touchdowns in each of the last four games he has played.
4 rec, 90 yards, 1 TDBoldin had just two catches last week, but was targeted seven times. He has been the Ravens' top receiving option, and that should not change going forward. He is certainly worth starting consideration against a porous Falcons pass defense.
5 rec, 55 yardsOn his best weeks, Mason is still overshadowed by Anquan Boldin in the passing game. He has to fight with Ray Rice and Todd Heap for targets as well. Mason is an option in deep PPR leagues, and that's about it.
3 rec, 35 yards, 1 TDHe is a nice option to have around during the chaos of bye weeks, but as that comes to a close Heap should find his way to the bottom of the bench or back on free agency.
2 PATs, 3 FGsThe Ravens' offense has been clicking in all facets lately, and Cundiff has reaped the benefits. In the Baltimore's last three games he has made 9-of-10 field goal attempts.
3 sacks, 1 INT, 1 FumbleEven a Ravens defense that many recognize as declining is still one of the best in the league. Baltimore is giving up 311 yards per game and just 17.4 points. Atlanta is balanced offensively, but the Falcons should still have their hands full against Baltimore.
175 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 1 INTWith a 13-5, TD-INT ratio, Ryan should be considered a safe, low-end option on a weekly basis. He certainly won't hurt your fantasy team, though he won't really give it much of a boost either.
1 rec, 5 rec yards, 95 rush yards, 1 rush TDIn his last two games, Turner has 47 total carries for 228 yards and four touchdowns. While Baltimore should provide a tougher defensive test, they have proven that they can be run on this season. Keep Turner in your lineup.
4 rec, 80 yards, 1 TDWhite left last week's game against Tampa Bay with a knee injury, so double check his status for Thursday's game against Baltimore. If he's available to play, he should be started as usual.
3 rec, 35 yardsSince returning from a shoulder injury in Week 6, Jenkins has yet to prove he can be a consistent fantasy option. With 10 total catches in three games, there is just not enough evidence to warrant a waiver pickup.
5 rec, 55 yardsGonzalez saw 11 targets last week in catching eight passes for 72 yards. Keep in mind that it was just his second game over 41 yards this season. He is a better option in PPR leagues, but even then he is still in the second tier of tight ends.
2 PATs, 2 FGsBryant has thrived in a productive offense, going 16-for-19 on field goal attempts so far this season. Even against what should be a stiff defensive test this week, Bryant will have his opportunities.
2 sacksThe Falcons have been stiff against the run, but the droves of passing yards they have given up recently are worrisome. They may be an option to avoid this week, if you can, against a Ravens offense that is finding its stride.
