With the rushing upside of Lamar Jackson, it’s hard not to have high expectations every week. Currently the QB10, I wouldn’t be surprised if Lamar put up a top 5 quarterback week. That’s always in the range of possibilities for him, so start him with confidence no matter the league format.
Between Latavius Murray, Ty’Son Williams, Le’Veon Bell and Devonta Freeman, Murray is the only one who I’d even consider starting in fantasy this week. Williams was a healthy scratch last week implying we can expect the same this week as well. Murray is a low-end flex option if you’re desperate at running back.
Marquise Brown is someone who’s really surprised me this year in fantasy. He’s seeing a solid target share and Lamar is finding him often on deep balls. He’s the WR14, and I believe he’s a strong WR2 again this week with all the upside in the world. Sammy Watkins is someone you should avoid as well as Rashod Bateman if he’s activated to play in Week 5. He’s coming off an injury and we’re not sure what his role on the team will be just yet. Hold off and let’s revisit his value after Monday Night’s game.
The target share Mark Andrews is seeing is very impressive, but his fantasy production has lacked. Volume is king and Andrews is bound to find the endzone this season. Start the TE9 and expect a big week from him.
Justin Tucker is the GOAT and should be started no matter the matchup. He’s the #2 overall kicker and will continue to be one of the best even in his 10th year in the league. The Ravens D/ST hasn’t performed as well as expected though their defense has seen a bit of the injury bug. I’d be willing to start them knowing Wentz has been known to turn the ball over throughout his career.
