News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Dec 3): The rookie to rookie connection in Baltimore has actually been one of the most productive. Against a Chiefs defense that just allowed a big game to Jared Cook, Andrews might hit as a streamer this week.
Week 14: at Kansas City Chiefs
FBG says: Good matchup. Since Lamar Jackson took over in Week 11, the Ravens have attempted just 22.7 passes per game. It has been both a low-volume and low-efficiency (6.9 yards per attempt) passing attack. Jackson is averaging just 151 passing yards and 0.3 passing touchdowns per game as the starter. Since Jackson took over, Michael Crabtree leads the Ravens in all receiving categories with 7 catches for 64 yards and 1 touchdown. This is a team that is moving to a run-heavy package as it is working at the time being. Expect the Ravens to just throw when they have to and to keep the defense honest, but this is a coaching staff that is fighting to keep their job and they are on a three-game winning streak with the run-heavy model so expect that to continue this week. The Chiefs have allowed the fifth-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this season and second-most per game over the past four weeks. Over the last two weeks, the Chiefs have allowed seven touchdowns and an average of 349 yards to Derek Carr and Jared Goff. The biggest issue for the Chiefs is two-fold, the first being that they are facing the most pass attempts in the NFL this season at 42 attempts per game. This is largely due to the game script as the Chiefs have gotten out to big leads this season. The second issue for the Chiefs is that they just do not have a lot of talent in the secondary as their corners are a group that is made up of former slot corners just last season. At the safety and linebacker position, the talent deficiency is much of the same as no team has given up more through the air to opposing running backs than the Chiefs (83 receptions for 809 yards and 6 touchdowns). The Chiefs have also allowed more receiving yards (913) to opposing tight ends than any team in the league. The team desperately needs Eric Berry to return and he has been practicing this week so keep an eye on it as it would be a nice time for them to get their star safety back. The one benefit the Chiefs pass defense has this week is that they are going up against Lamar Jackson and this Ravens passing offense that are going to limit the amount they throw the ball and try to win the game on the ground.
