Week 12: vs Houston Texans

All QB vs HOU

FBG says: Great matchup. Joe Flacco and the Ravens passing game continue to be tasked with the bare minimum required to get by. Perhaps his offseason back injury is still a bit of an issue, or perhaps Flacco merely isn't very good at this point, but for whatever reason, this is a "just enough" attack that has yet to create any fireworks. Flacco's season high in yardage came in Week 9, a 261-yard performance in a tight win over the Titans, and that seems like a perfectly fair ceiling to set - and quarterbacks tend to reach their ceilings against this decimated Houston defense. Wideouts Jeremy Maclin and Mike Wallace boast strong one-on-one matchups this week - the Texans have allowed the league's third-most fantasy points to wide receivers - as does tight end Ben Watson (sixth-most to tight ends). We never want to rely on Flacco and his weapons, but the Week 12 matchup is cherry and he's at least been precise with his throws. Expect a solid if volume-driven performance. As good as the Texans run defense has been, their pass defense has been inversely awful. The losses of cornerbacks A.J. Bouye (free agency) and Kevin Johnson (injury) have truly decimated the secondary, and the many pass rush losses certainly haven't helped. As a result, opponents have racked up the league's fifth-most (7.2) net yards per attempt and the seventh-most (252.8) yards per game. Of late. they've been absolutely shredded by the Seahawks (452 yards and 4 touchdowns), Colts (308 and 2), Rams (355 and 3), and Blaine Gabbert-led Cardinals (257 and 3). This is among the league's most targetable units, and they boost the outlooks of even mediocre passing games like that of the Ravens.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 8 vs MIA (3 / 7 / 20 / 1 / 0 pass, 4 / -3 / 0 rush)

Ryan Mallett connected with Ben Watson off play action for an easy 2 yard touchdown with Kiko Alonso in coverage after taking over for Flacco inside the Dolphins 10 yard line. The Ravens were conservative with their play calling with Mallett under center. The Ravens managed a field goal attempt with Mallett under center thanks to an unnecessary roughness penalty on the Dolphins. The Ravens offense did manage a touchdown drive with Mallett but it was comprised almost entirely of run plays.
