With Ponder suffering a concussion against the Bears last week and out for this game, Cassel gets the start. But you don't want anything to do with Minnesota quarterbacks.
If there were ever a time to predict a running back would run for 200 yards, it was Peterson going up against the Bears last week. He did just that, picking up 211 yards on 35 carries in the win.
Patterson caught one pass for four yards last week. He's a stash option for 2014 for those of you in keeper/dynasty leagues.
Jennings had seven catches for 78 yards and a score last week, but the Ravens have allowed just 12 passing touchdowns in their last 11 games.
Simpson got nine targets last week, catching three of them for 76 yards. Nothing will change his persona non grata status in fantasy leagues.
Carlson had four catches for 61 yards last week, and the Ravens are a neutral matchup for a tight end.
Walsh went 3-for-4 on field-goal attempts last week and is now 22-for-25 on the season.
The Vikings gave up 7.4 points per play to the Bears last week.
Flacco threw for 251 yards and a score last week and is a sneaky play against a Minnesota defense that allows the second-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks.
Rice has been successful with good matchups this season, and the Vikings present one for him. They've allowed the third-most fantasy points per game to running backs.
Pierce had nine carries for 35 yards. This game will have to be a blowout for him to hold any fantasy value.
Smith caught six passes for 93 yards and a score and has to be excited after seeing what Alshon Jeffery did to the Vikings last week.
Jones caught four passes for 53 yards a week ago. He's too deep an option for most leagues.
Brown got exactly one target last week. Forget about him.
Clark may hold off Dennis Pitta for one more week, but he doesn't have any fantasy value.
Tucker had another huge game last week, connecting on all five of his field-goal attempts. He is 29-for-31 on the year.
The Ravens pulled a disappearing act last week, failing to register a sack or takeaway. That shouldn't stop you from starting them against the Vikings.
