Baltimore Ravens
vs
Minnesota Vikings
M&T Bank Stadium | Sunday, Dec. 08 | 1 PM EST (FOX)

Minnesota Vikings

    1. Matt Cassel
    2. Matt
      Cassel
      QB
    3. PASS YDS221
    4. PASS TD0
    5. INT1
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    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.

    1. Adrian Peterson
    2. Adrian
      Peterson
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS103
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS14
    6. REC TD0

    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.

    1. Cordarrelle Patterson
    2. Cordarrelle
      Patterson
      WR
    3. REC YDS70
    4. REC TD0

    Patterson caught one pass for four yards last week. He's a stash option for 2014 for those of you in keeper/dynasty leagues.

    1. Greg Jennings
    2. Greg
      Jennings
      WR
    3. REC YDS56
    4. REC TD0

    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.

    1. Jerome Simpson
    2. Jerome
      Simpson
      WR
    3. REC YDS40
    4. REC TD0

    Simpson got nine targets last week, catching three of them for 76 yards. Nothing will change his persona non grata status in fantasy leagues.

    1. John Carlson
    2. John
      Carlson
      TE
    3. REC YDS22
    4. REC TD0

    Carlson had four catches for 61 yards last week, and the Ravens are a neutral matchup for a tight end.

    1. Blair Walsh
    2. Blair
      Walsh
      K
    3. PAT1
    4. FG2

    Walsh went 3-for-4 on field-goal attempts last week and is now 22-for-25 on the season.

    1. Minnesota Vikings
    2. PTS ALLOWED30
    3. SACKS2
    4. INT0
    5. TD0

    The Vikings gave up 7.4 points per play to the Bears last week.

Baltimore Ravens

    1. Joe Flacco
    2. Joe
      Flacco
      QB
    3. PASS YDS314
    4. PASS TD2
    5. INT0
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    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.

    1. Ray Rice
    2. Ray
      Rice
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS107
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS37
    6. REC TD0

    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.

    1. Bernard Pierce
    2. Bernard
      Pierce
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS25
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS0
    6. REC TD0

    Pierce had nine carries for 35 yards. This game will have to be a blowout for him to hold any fantasy value.

    1. Torrey Smith
    2. Torrey
      Smith
      WR
    3. REC YDS113
    4. REC TD1

    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.

    1. Jacoby Jones
    2. Jacoby
      Jones
      WR
    3. REC YDS59
    4. REC TD1

    Jones caught four passes for 53 yards a week ago. He's too deep an option for most leagues.

    1. Marlon Brown
    2. Marlon
      Brown
      WR
    3. REC YDS47
    4. REC TD0

    Brown got exactly one target last week. Forget about him.

    1. Dallas Clark
    2. Dallas
      Clark
      TE
    3. REC YDS38
    4. REC TD0

    Clark may hold off Dennis Pitta for one more week, but he doesn't have any fantasy value.

    1. Justin Tucker
    2. Justin
      Tucker
      K
    3. PAT3
    4. FG3

    Tucker had another huge game last week, connecting on all five of his field-goal attempts. He is 29-for-31 on the year.

    1. Baltimore Ravens
    2. PTS ALLOWED13
    3. SACKS3
    4. INT1
    5. TD0

    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.
