Indianapolis Colts

Quarterback - Andrew Luck
Primary Target - T.Y. Hilton

This week is a little different from the previous few as there are only two games with a Vegas Total greater than 50 and of those quarterbacks, only one stands out. Winston and Osweiler have been very inconsistent, and while Nick Mullens has the nut matchup this week he has such a small sample size. Andrew Luck, on the other hand, has everything going his way lately and checks off almost every single box. First of all, the Colts have the highest implied total(29) of any team and come in with a four-game win streak on the back of the Luck and the offense who have averaged 36.5 points per game in that stretch. Luck's success has gone back even further as he is on a historic run with seven straight games with three or more touchdowns and has tallied 22 or more fantasy points in each of those contests. He is even shaking the "declining arm strength" tag he was given early in the season as illustrated by his 68-yard bomb to Hilton last week over the top of Adoree' Jackson, one of the fastest corners in the game. The matchup on paper may not look the best as the Dolphins are only giving up 250 passing yards per game(19th) but considering Luck torched the #3 ranked passing defense in Jacksonville two weeks ago, I am not worried at all. I will once again be pairing Luck with Hilton as he has been the only consistent option in the passing game since his return.

Baltimore Ravens

Quarterback - Lamar Jackson
Running Back - Gus Edwards

The zone-read came into play last week for the Ravens who started Lamar Jackson in place of the injured Joe Flacco. Alex Collins was essentially phased out early in the game and for good reason as Jackson and Edwards combined for 43 carries and 234 yards rushing. We should have seen it coming as the two worked together all season in practice with the two's. It has already been announced that Flacco will be out once again this week with Jackson getting his second straight start and gets another elite matchup against the Raiders who have allowed the second-most rushing yards per game(142.3). The price has come up from last week but combined will still only cost us just over 20% of our salary leaving a ton of room to load up with elite players. For correlation purposes, you can also add the Ravens defense who has a sizeable advantage when looking at adjusted sack rates on their defensive line vs. the Raiders offensive line(7th to 25th).
