Week 15: vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers

All TE vs TB

FBG says: Neutral matchup. It's unusual this late in the season to see any team, let alone a playoff contender, in this type of quarterback conundrum. But the Ravens have yet to commit to an offensive scheme, let alone a quarterback, for Week 15. Joe Flacco is apparently healthy and ready to take snaps, but we may be just far enough into the Lamar Jackson era that the former Super Bowl MVP is done in Baltimore. Jackson hasn't dazzled anyone as a passer, completing just 58% of his throws with 4 touchdowns over 4 starts. He's actually regressed a bit, posting just 6.0 yards per attempt over a pair of generous matchups the last 2 weeks. But he's brought enough dynamism with his legs and instinctive arm that the Ravens are just a Kansas City field goal from a four-game winning streak. There's a chance - depending on how John Harbaugh's tone is to be read - that both he and Flacco take on packages of their own in Week 15. That would be incredibly difficult to project, though Jackson would obviously have the higher fantasy ceiling. Regardless, none of the Baltimore receivers can be trusted in fantasy. Michael Crabtree and John Brown have totaled just 272 yards over the last 5 weeks - 2 of them with Flacco. Rookie tight end Mark Andrews may actually be the most intriguing dart throw here. He went without a catch last week but posted 47 yards or more in 3 of the previous four. With nowhere to go but up, the Tampa Bay pass defense has improved noticeably over the last month. After allowing a league-high 367 yards per game over the season's first 5 weeks, they've settled down to just 234 since with just a single 300-yard passer (Cam Newton) over that span. Still, there's a ways to go. Opponents are completing passes at a sky-high rate (73%), and 9 of 13 have thrown multiple touchdowns. This is a unit built mostly around sitting off of receivers and merely tackling the reception, in lieu of allowing its shaky cornerbacks to be beaten downfield all day. As a result, slot and/or possession guys like Dante Pettis (4 for 77 and 1 touchdown), Curtis Samuel (6 for 88), and Michael Thomas (11 for 98) have posted strong volume over the past few weeks. There have been encouraging steps forward, but this isn't a shutdown unit by any means. If the Ravens find themselves throwing more often than usual - and testing this secondary downfield - they can find solid efficiency in this matchup.
