QBJoe Flacco

Joe Flacco

220 pass yards, pass TD, INT

Flacco had a disappointing fantasy effort at Pittsburgh in Week 11, throwing for 164 yards and no touchdowns. With just seven touchdown passes in his past seven games, Flacco is officially a fantasy backup.

RBRay Rice

Ray Rice

55 rush yards, rush TD, 6 rec, 60 rec yards

Rice was bottled up in Week 11 by Pittsburgh's run defense, which held him to 40 yards on 20 carries. Still, he was able to catch five passes for 53 yards. The Chargers are solid against the run, but Rice will produce in multiple ways.

RBBernard Pierce

Bernard Pierce

12 rush yards, 2 rec, 20 rec yards

The rookie had three touches for a total of 19 yards at Pittsburgh Sunday night. He's still a better handcuff than fantasy starter.

WRTorrey Smith

Torrey Smith

7 rec, 75 yards, rec TD

Smith caught just one of the seven passes thrown his way in Week 11, but his disappointing effort stemmed from his recent chest injury. Hopefully, he can get healthy with a full week of preparation and score his eighth touchdown of the year.

WRAnquan Boldin

Anquan Boldin

5 rec, 60 yards

Boldin caught a team-high eight passes for 79 yards at Pittsburgh Sunday night. Despite not scoring a touchdown, Boldin posted one of his better efforts to date. The Chargers struggle against the pass, so Boldin should be able to produce.

TEDennis Pitta

Dennis Pitta

2 rec, 15 yards

Pitta caught one pass for five yards at Pittsburgh in Week 11, leaving early with a head injury. He has just one touchdown in his past seven games, and the Chargers are tough on tight ends, allowing just two scores to them all season. Stay away.

KJustin Tucker

Justin Tucker

2 PATs, 2 FGs

Tucker kicked a pair of field goals and an extra point against the Steelers in Week 11. Since the bye week, Tucker has five field goals and 10 extra points in three games.

DEFENSE

2 INTs, 3 Sacks

The Ravens' D/ST scored its fifth touchdown of the season in Week 11, returning a punt for a score. The Chiefs are the only team to throw more interceptions than the Chargers, which bodes well for the Ravens' defense this week.

QBPhilip Rivers

Philip Rivers

220 pass yards, pass TD, 2 INTs

Rivers had a tough time against the Broncos, but he was able to throw for 258 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. The Ravens travel to San Diego in Week 12, which doesn't bode well for Rivers.

RBRyan Mathews

Ryan Mathews

65 rush yards, 3 rec, 34 rec yards

Once again, Mathews was a fantasy disappointment in Week 11. He rushed for 47 yards and caught four passes for 36 yards, but he still has just one touchdown this season. The Ravens aren't great against the run, however, as they have allowed 10 rushing touchdowns this season.

RBJackie Battle

Jackie Battle

15 rush yards, 1 rec, 8 rec yards

Battle totaled minus-two yards on four touches in Week 11 against the Broncos. Until Ryan Mathews is knocked out of a game again, Battle's fantasy value is limited.

WRDanario Alexander

Danario Alexander

6 rec, 80 yards, rec TD

Alexander rewarded all the fantasy owners who picked him up off Week 11 waivers, as he caught a team-leading seven passes for 96 yards and two touchdowns at Denver. The big receiver had 11 targets and should now be considered a solid WR2 in fantasy play.

WRMalcom Floyd

Malcom Floyd

4 rec, 55 yards

Floyd caught four passes for 67 yards in Week 11 and served as a complement to Danario Alexander on the other side of the Chargers' passing formation. Over the past three weeks, Floyd has 14 receptions for 178 yards and two touchdowns. The Ravens are better against the pass than the run, however.

TEAntonio Gates

Antonio Gates

4 rec, 40 yards

Gates caught two passes for 17 yards at Denver in Week 11. And while the Ravens have allowed just one touchdown to tight ends this season, most Gates owners will still need to start him out of necessity.

KNick Novak

Nick Novak

PAT, 2 FGs

Novak had only two fantasy points in Week 11. He has just four field goals and nine extra points in his past four games.

DEFENSE

INT, 2 Sacks

Despite giving up 30 points to Peyton Manning and Co., the Chargers' defense still had three sacks, a safety and an interception return for a touchdown. The Ravens don't turn the ball over much, but they aren't hitting on all cylinders either, making the Chargers' defense a borderline fantasy starter.
