Week 6: vs Cincinnati Bengals

All TE vs CIN

FBG says: Good matchup. Predictably, Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore passing attack has fallen off since its eruption over the first two weeks. They can't play the Dolphins and Cardinals every Sunday, after all. Jackson has definitively improved on a few points as a passer, but continues to struggle with reads and decision-making. Over the last 3 weeks, he's averaged just 6.4 yards per attempt and 225 a game, with 5 interceptions. Running on predictable play-calling and not much depth, this remains a fairly two-dimensional attack, working heavily through explosive rookie wideout Marquise Brown and tight end Mark Andrews. Brown leads the way in targets, but hasn't reached 50 yards since Week 2 as defenses have bracketed his speed successfully, forcing him into a slot-and-screen type of role. Brown is nursing a sore ankle, but should reclaim his full complement of snaps Sunday, which would relegate Willie Snead back into the shadows. Andrews has developed into one of football's brightest young stars at tight end, boasting a dynamic blend of speed and athleticism up the seams. He's averaging 15.5 yards per catch, and last week came up a yard short of his fourth touchdown of the season. Beyond those two, there's not much upside to speak of. Snead and Miles Boykin hold inconsistent roles off the bench, and Jackson is too downfield-minded to make much use of his backs. All told, from week to week, this unit's upside hinges on Jackson's ability to find Brown and Andrews deep. It hasn't happened of late, but always carries a considerable ceiling - especially in such a juicy matchup. At first glance, the Cincinnati pass defense has tightened noticeably from its disastrous 2018, checking in at a respectable 17th in yardage allowed and 14th in touchdowns. But those numbers have been largely depressed by volume, as teams have had to throw less than usual against the 0-5 Bengals. From an efficiency standpoint, this remains one of football's juicier matchups. Saddled with a shaky secondary and an underachieving pass rush, the Bengals are allowing the league's third-most net yards per attempt, despite facing a particularly green set of quarterbacks thus far. Josh Allen, Mason Rudolph, and Kyler Murray have all posted reasonably efficient days. Outside cornerbacks William Jackson and Dre Kirkpatrick continue to yo-yo between shutdown-strong and thoroughly beatable downfield, while B.W. Webb has been one of the league's worst in the slot. And the play of safeties Shawn Williams and Jessie Bates, both considered strong up-and-coming prospects, has been horrendous in support coverage. As a unit, they've given up their share of deep balls to an array of dynamic young wideouts. If the Ravens' Marquise Brown can suit up Sunday, he'll look to be the fourth rookie receiver to top 75 yards in this matchup.
