Week 2: vs Arizona Cardinals

All TE vs ARI

FBG says: Great matchup. By now, the sports world has run out of adjectives to describe the Ravens' Week 1 onslaught. Lamar Jackson simply erupted against the Dolphins' weak secondary, posting a perfect passer rating over three-quarters of play. His 324 yards and 5 touchdowns shattered expectations and offered tons of optimism in the growth of his arm skills. Jackson routinely found his retooled receiving corps - particularly prized rookie Marquise Brown - for big plays downfield. The pair showed an impressive sense of timing so early, especially considering Brown missed so much camp time. Brown is exceptionally small, but his speed and short-area burst proved impossible for the Dolphins to contain. Tight end Mark Andrews carried over his playmaking from 2018, winning frequently up the seams; he's the clear-cut second option here. Rookie Miles Boykin only drew one target in the starting role, but on cue, turned it into an impressive touchdown. They won't be able to face the Dolphins every week, and Jackson will face far more resistance going forward. But as long as he's executing confidently off play action, all of his weapons will boast big-game potential. Predictably, the Cardinals struggled mightily to defend the pass in Week 1 without Patrick Peterson. The Lions looked incapable of making plays through the air in 2018 but opened the year with 385 yards and 3 touchdowns in this matchup. Marvin Jones and Kenny Golladay won their share of battles down the field, while slot man Danny Amendola and rookie tight end T.J. Hockenson excelled over the middle. Suspended until Week 7, Peterson will continue to watch helplessly as the team's shallow secondary seeks its footing. His replacement, Tramaine Brock, was beaten frequently Sunday, as was rookie slot man Byron Murphy. As a whole, though, the unit lacked cohesion and communication across the field. Even without Peterson, better safety play could slow the wide-open, in-strIde completions between zones. The team is counting on D.J. Swearinger, who was excellent in Washington last year, to provide that open-space ability.
