  • Ravens Defense Is The Best Starting Option In Week 13

    The Baltimore Ravens defense/special teams have been one of the best units in fantasy football in 2022. They have been the model of consistency through the first 11 games and are showing no signs of slowing down. Having compiled 35 sacks, 11 interceptions and nine fumble recoveries, they are already ahead of their totals from the entire 2021 season in each category. In Week 13, they have a dream matchup against a poor Broncos offense that is averaging 14.3 points per game, the worst in the NFL. Fantasy managers should start the Ravens defense with extreme confidence this week across all fantasy formats.

  • Ravens Defense Plays Loud, Defeats Panthers

    The Baltimore Ravens' defense put on a show against the Carolina Panthers in Week 11, racking up four sacks, two interceptions, and one fumble recovery. Key players included Patrick Queen (12 tackles, 0.5 sacks), Marlon Humphrey (one interception, one fumble recovery), and Jason Pierre-Paul (one interception, one sack). This Baltimore unit remains a must-start against the Jaguars in Week 12.

  • Ravens Defense Faces A Struggling Offense In Week 8

    The Ravens' defense will enter Week 8 with a favorable matchup against Tom Brady and the Buccaneers. Brady has struggled this season, throwing one touchdown or less in all but one game while sitting on a career-worst 53.2 QBR. Tampa may be without some key pieces of the offense on Thursday, with Mike Evans (ankle) and Julio Jones (knee) listed as limited participants in Tuesday's practice. There's also a good chance Cameron Brate (neck) won't be available. Baltimore's D has been a top-10 fantasy option all season, so most managers know what the group can do. However, the unit's ceiling is higher than usual, considering Brady's lackluster play and potential absences.

  • Ravens Defense Records Five Sacks In Week 7

    The Ravens defense surrendered 20 points to the Browns in Week 7. Yet, the unit was still good enough to get the birds back into the win column after coming off a loss to the New York Giants. While Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt both accounted for a touchdown, Baltimore's defense got to Jacoby Brissett five times, resulting in a total loss of 35 yards. The Ravens will have a quick turnaround before meeting Tom Brady and the Bucs on Thursday night. However, considering how poor Tampa's offense looked versus the Panthers, fantasy managers should keep the Baltimore's D starting.

  • Ravens Defense Remains A Must-Start Versus Browns

    The Ravens will enter Week 7 coming off a loss to the New York Giants. The defense struggled in that one, allowing quarterback Daniel Jones to throw two touchdowns and complete 68% of his attempts while also surrendering 83 rushing yards and another touchdown to running back Saquon Barkley. Still, Baltimore's D remains a borderline top-10 fantasy unit, especially with the third-most interceptions (eight) on the season. The squad is also capable of getting to the quarterback. That said, unless the struggles remain consistent, fantasy managers should keep the Ravens defense in their starting lineups, including for the Week 7 divisional showdown versus the Browns.

  • Ravens Defense Records Three Sacks In Win

    The Baltimore Ravens defense had a bounce-back performance in Week 5 as they recorded three sacks and an interception on Joe Burrow in the 19-17 win. Patrick Queen recorded the interception, while Marcus Peters, Josh Bynes, and newly-signed Jason Pierre-Paul recorded the sacks. They draw a good matchup in Week 6 with the Giants, who have a depleted wide receiver core and banged-up quarterback heading into their matchup.

  • Ravens Defense Has A Rough Afternoon Against The Bills

    The Ravens defense surrendered 23 points to the Bills offense in Week 4, its second lowest total of the season. The unit also kept Josh Allen in check on the passing end, holding the signal-caller to 213 yards on 19-for-36 passing and a touchdown while picking up an interception. In all fairness, the soggy weather conditions didn't help, allowing Allen to add 70 yards off 11 carries and another touchdown. Yet, despite the loss and subpar showing, the Ravens defense remains one of the most efficient fantasy groups going. However, things will remain challenging in Week 5 against the Bengals, a team that features Joe Burrow, Joe Mixon, Ja'Marr Chase, and Tee Higgins. Fantasy managers should proceed cautiously for that one, possibly even starting a different defensive squad

  • Don't Count On Ravens Defense In Week 4

    The Ravens defense has been a top-10 unit this season. With that said, things haven't been perfect, as Baltimore has allowed nearly 26 points per game, one of the worst marks in the NFL. The squad has the misfortune of trying to slow down Josh Allen and the Bills on Sunday. It's no secret that Allen is a top signal-caller and is capable of putting up points in a hurry. Considering the Ravens defense has struggled against opposing wideouts, surrendering over 1,000 receiving yards throughout the first three weeks, fantasy managers should consider alternative options in Week 4.

  • Baltimore Ravens Defense - Week 3 Outlook For Fantasy Football

    The Baltimore Ravens defense/special teams has been solid for fantasy so far this season. They have generated four sacks, three interceptions, and one fumble recovery through two games and managed seven fantasy points despite allowing the Miami Dolphins to score 42 real points last week. In Week 3, the Ravens will go on the road to face the New England Patriots, who have a far less prolific offense than Miami. They should be fine to start this week, but fantasy managers should note that a matchup with the Buffalo Bills is on deck, so the Baltimore DST is not a must-hold.
