These contests are intended to be fun as you’re watching the game. It’s incredibly difficult to get a real edge as there are so few options, and in MME contests, there are often many duplicate lineups. One play or one penalty can change the entire outcome of the game.
This will be a fun one because the outcome is tough to predict. The Ravens are 1.5-point favorites on the road, meaning Vegas sees this as a close game between two closely matched teams. And with all the injuries both organizations are dealing with, Vegas' projection looks spot on. Lineups should be correlated but other than that, leaning heavily toward either team makes sense.
- Mark Andrews OUT
- Michael Thomas OUT
- Rashod Bateman OUT
- J.K. Dobbins OUT
- Marshon Lattimore OUT
- Mark Ingram II OUT
- Gus Edwards Doubtful
- Jarvis Landry Questionable
- Demarcus Robinson Questionable
Lamar Jackson - Captain/Flex
With so many injuries to impact skill players, Lamar Jackson is the obvious captain choice in this one. Jackson ranks fifth in fantasy points per game (23.1) at the quarterback position, fifth in pass touchdowns per game (1.9), and leads a Ravens offense that ranks ninth in Success Rate. His matchup is favorable against a Saints defense that will be without Marshon Lattimore and that ranks 21st in EPA/Play Allowed, 29th in Dropback EPA Allowed, and 22nd in Success Rate.
Running Back/Wide Receiver/Tight End
Isaiah Likely - Captain/Flex
Mark Andrews only played ten snaps before getting injured last week and that led Isaiah Likely to play on a season-high 67% of the offensive snaps and run a route on 81% of the dropbacks, which led the team. Offensive Coordinator, Greg Roman, runs his passing offense through the tight end position so look for Likely to be plenty busy on Monday Night.
