Baltimore Ravens
vs
Houston Texans
M&T Bank Stadium | Sunday, Sep. 22 | 1 PM EST (CBS)

Houston Texans

    1. Matt Schaub
    2. Matt
      Schaub
      QB
    3. PASS YDS258
    4. PASS TD1
    5. INT1
    6. RUSH YDS3
    7. RUSH TD0

    The Texans are expecting Andre Johnson to pass concussions tests and play this week. If he's out, you can't start Schaub.

    1. Arian Foster
    2. Arian
      Foster
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS62
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS27
    6. REC TD1

    Once again, Foster dominated the touches out of the backfield. He made them count last week, totaling 85 yards and a touchdown.

    1. Ben Tate
    2. Ben
      Tate
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS44
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS7
    6. REC TD0

    Tate looked great yet again, running for 93 yards on just nine carries. Despite his slim role, he's starting to look like a borderline flex play.

    1. DeAndre Hopkins
    2. DeAndre
      Hopkins
      WR
    3. REC YDS83
    4. REC TD1

    Hopkins went off last week, catching seven passes for 117 yards and a score. He came up huge in overtime with Andre Johnson on the bench. I'd start him if Johnson is out this week.

    1. Andre Johnson
    2. Andre
      Johnson
      WR
    3. REC YDS61
    4. REC TD0

    Keep an eye on Johnson's practice schedule this week. After suffering a concussion against the Titans, Houston likely won't make a decision on his availability until the end of the week.

    1. Owen Daniels
    2. Owen
      Daniels
      TE
    3. REC YDS53
    4. REC TD0

    Daniels only caught two passes, though one of them went for a touchdown. He may be able to find the same success Julius Thomas did against the Ravens Week 1.

    1. Randy Bullock
    2. Randy
      Bullock
      K
    3. PAT2
    4. FG2

    I expect Texans-Ravens to be a tightly played game, and that's usually a good thing for kickers. It will be for Bullock.

    1. Houston Texans
    2. PTS ALLOWED19
    3. SACKS3
    4. INT0
    5. TD0

    In what seemed like a cushy matchup with the Titans, the Texans didn't force any turnovers and gave up 24 points. I'd still run them out there against Baltimore.

Baltimore Ravens

    1. Joe Flacco
    2. Joe
      Flacco
      QB
    3. PASS YDS237
    4. PASS TD1
    5. INT0
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    The losses of Anquan Boldin and Dennis Pitta are really showing up for Flacco. He cannot be considered a starter.

    1. Ray Rice
    2. Ray
      Rice
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS63
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS32
    6. REC TD0

    Rice is expected to play after suffering a hip injury last week, but it remains to be seen how effective he will be.

    1. Bernard Pierce
    2. Bernard
      Pierce
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS42
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS0
    6. REC TD0

    Pierce had a really nice showing once Ray Rice left last week's game with a hip injury. With Rice likely to be dealing with its effects this week, Pierce is a sneaky play.

    1. Torrey Smith
    2. Torrey
      Smith
      WR
    3. REC YDS91
    4. REC TD1

    Even though the passing offense around him is worse than last year, fewer mouths to feed means great things for Smith's fantasy owners. I've got him inside the top-20 receivers for the rest of the year.

    1. Marlon Brown
    2. Marlon
      Brown
      WR
    3. REC YDS53
    4. REC TD0

    Brown caught four passees for 45 yards and a TD in his first career start. He'll be nice to have around once the bye weeks begin.

    1. Dallas Clark
    2. Dallas
      Clark
      TE
    3. REC YDS20
    4. REC TD0

    My suspicions are confirmed. Clark's targets Week 1 were totally driven by game situation. He is not a fantasy option.

    1. Justin Tucker
    2. Justin
      Tucker
      K
    3. PAT1
    4. FG4

    As far as a fantasy kicker goes, Tucker was essentially shut out last week. I think he'll make up for that in a big way against Houston.

    1. Baltimore Ravens
    2. PTS ALLOWED20
    3. SACKS3
    4. INT1
    5. TD0

    Baltimore bounced back last week, albeit against an anemic Cleveland offense. Use the D as you normally would this week.
