Week 13: vs San Diego Chargers

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Joe Flacco has watched Justin Forsett plow in two rushing scores per game over the past two contests - the game plan has been slanted towards the rushing game during recent contests, with 24 passes attempted vs. 32 rushes at New Orleans (Flacco threw 18/24 for 243 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions with one sack taken for -9 yards at the Superdome) and 27 passes attempted and 34 rushes vs. Tennessee (16/27 for 169 yards, one TD and zero interceptions thrown, with one sack taken for -8 yards). Flacco and company having a winning NFL formula these days, but they aren't creating jaw-dropping fantasy numbers in this phase of the game. The Smiths have split the available passing scores, with Torrey Smith reeling in the TD vs. Tennessee (eight targets for 5/75/1 receiving, to lead the team in receiving), while Steve Smith Sr. (six targets for 4/89/1 receiving) got the TD at New Orleans. Torrey Smith led the team in receiving last week (six for 5/98/0) - the two wideouts are the most productive fantasy receivers for the Ravens entering the holiday weekend. San Diego averages 221.3 net yards passing allowed per game, with 18 passing scores given out over 11 games, while generating just six interceptions (tied for 26th in the NFL) and only 18 sacks (tied for 27th). Shaun Hill and company posted 19/36 for 210 yards passing, one TD and two interceptions thrown vs. San Diego last week (with one sack taken for -7 yards); Derek Carr dinked-and-dunked to 16/34 for 162 net yards, zero TDs or interceptions, and two sacks taken for -10 yards at San Diego two games back. Both of these units are on an even (if mediocre) keel entering Week 13 - neither has a clear edge over the other. Also, Justin Forsett has been really hot of late in the rushing phase of the game - Flacco may not need to sling the ball much in this contest.
