Week 6: vs Cincinnati Bengals

All RB vs CIN

FBG says: Great matchup. Their success starts up front, on a line that could conceivably send three starters to the Pro Bowl. Marshal Yanda continues to anchor a dominant interior, while Ronnie Stanley and Orlando Brown are mobile maulers on the outside. Their power and versatility create wide lanes for Mark Ingram, who remains a quick and instinctive cutback runner at 29. With 12+ carries in each game and a sterling 5.0-yard average, he's definitely met the team's expectations. And he's been outstanding on the goal line, scoring on five of seven rushes from inside the five. Last week brought a minor letdown against the Steelers' stout run defense, but a Week 6 date with the Bengals is significantly more attractive. Gus Edwards continues to provide a solid if unspectacular power element behind him, though he's topped 30 yards only twice thus far. Of course, quarterback Lamar Jackson remains a massive contributor, with 66+ yards in 3 of his last 4 games. His called runs have come down, but not by much, and his improvisation is still a huge part of the Ravens offense. The Bengals remain one of fantasy's most attractive ground-game matchups. Still lacking sorely in talent all over the field, they've allowed the league's second-most yards per game (168) and fifth-most per attempt (5.0). They've been thoroughly dominated in three matchups thus far, including last Sunday, when the Cardinals' weak line and stuck-in-mud runners erupted for 252 yards and 2 over 35 carries. David Johnson broke out of a bad slump, while backup Chase Edmonds and quarterback Kyler Murray got in on the party as well. Despite boasting a strong pair of run-stuffing tackles in Geno Atkins and Andrew Billings, the Bengals simply don't move and fill lanes well on the second level. Linebackers Nick Vigil and Preston Brown are dependable tacklers on plays run right at them, but neither boasts much speed or athleticism in pursuit. Safeties Shawn Williams and Jessie Bates, both so strong last season, have regressed badly here in 2019. As a result, quick-footed backs have little trouble turning slight lanes into chunk plays. Virtually any opposing runner can count on a solid boost in efficiency in this matchup, so Mark Ingram and Lamar Jackson are set up for great games this week.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 4 vs CLE (6 / 28 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)

Gus Edwards continues to look excellent on limited touches. With the Ravens passing game struggling in recent weeks the Ravens may rely even more heavily on their ground game. Edwards has been very efficient and if Ingram has another costly fumble it could lead to more touches for Edwards. If Ingram were to lose touches they would go to Edwards who has been playing very well in the same role as Ingram. Justice Hill would likely remain in his current role as a change of pace back.

2019 Week 3 vs KC (7 / 53 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)

Gus Edwards played his best game of the season against the Chiefs. Edwards had a 45 yard run negated by a questionable holding penalty. Edwards had back to back carries of 15 and 13 yards in the second half. Edwards looked big and powerful with surprising speed and agility for a man his size. Edwards rarely went down on first contact and always fell forward when he was brought down. Edwards also saw some involvement in the passing game which was encouraging.

2019 Week 1 vs MIA (17 / 56 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Gus Edwards was frequently met at or near the line of scrimmage on a number of his carries. The Dolphins defense seemed to be keying on the fact that the Ravens are likely to call a running play when Edwards was in the game. Edwards gained 11 yards on his first carry following a block from Nick Boyle to the second level. Edwards got a carry from the two yard line but he was met at the line of scrimmage by Reshad Jones.
