Week 7: at Seattle Seahawks

All TE vs SEA

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Unsurprisingly, Lamar Jackson's passing value has scaled back majorly from his prolific first two weeks. He's throwing much better than he did as a rookie, but isn't winning fantasy matchups with his arm. Over the past 4 weeks, he's posted just 6.8 yards per attempt (30th among qualifiers over that span), with 4 touchdowns to 5 interceptions. Jackson is still very much learning the pro game, and his approach isn't very dynamic on its own, built around short, conservative throws. When explosive playmakers Mark Andrews and Marquise Brown are healthy, at least, there's a ton of after-catch potential on every target. Both have cooled off from their torrid starts to the season, but each has drawn a stout 23% of team targets while on the field together. Andrews excelled last week with Brown sidelined by an ankle injury, turning 8 targets into 99 yards - the third time he's reached that mark over 6 games. When healthy, Brown is fed the ball with manufactured touches from all over the field. But of late, he's had trouble turning them into production, averaging just 10.5 yards per catch since Week 1. Beyond those two, it's essentially a grab bag of role players far more important to the Ravens than to fantasy teams. This attack still goes squarely through Andrews and Brown, both of whom should be on the field in Week 7 - and find themselves in great one-on-one matchups. Jackson is still a volatile passer, but is in prime get-right position here. For the most part, the Seahawks have struggled throughout the young season in pass defense. They've only given up 8 touchdowns, but also 267 yards per attempt, the 10th-most in football. Perhaps a schematic shakeup would help matters. The current scheme puts a ton of pressure on starting cornerbacks Shaquill Griffin, who's been mostly solid, and Tre Flowers, who hasn't. Flowers has been one of football's least successful cover men thus far, and he was badly victimized last week in Odell Beckham's 6-catch, 101-yard bounce-back. Griffin and Flowers are usually the only cornerbacks on the field, forcing the linebackers and safeties into heavy coverage, and that hasn't helped. On the back end, Bradley McDougald and Tedric Thompson have made for one of football's weakest safety pairings. Tight ends are finding plenty of room against them, with Vance McDonald (7 catches and 2 touchdowns), Gerald Everett (7 for 136 yards), and even Ricky Seals-Jones (one touchdown and very nearly a second) all putting up season-best games. They've been especially slow in downfield coverage, too, leaving openings for too many successful deep balls. All told, this relatively slow-footed secondary needs work, and makes for a tasty matchup for the Ravens' weapons.
