We’re treated to a classic AFC North battle Monday night, as the 9-3 Browns (no, really!) are 3.0-point home underdogs to the 7-5 Ravens in a game with a 46.0-point total on DraftKings Sportsbook. The Browns come in after winning each of their last four games, including a big 41-35 victory over Tennessee last week, a game in which they led 38-7 at halftime. Meanwhile, the Ravens have really struggled, losing four of their last five, with losses to the Patriots, Titans and Steelers. A rash for COVID issues upended the team, but they will get most of their key players back, which is why they are favored. Nevertheless, a close game will likely have most fantasy players building balanced lineups as opposed to stacks for either team.
Baltimore’s Lamar Jackson ($11,800 DK, $17,000 FD) seems to have put his struggles behind him, as he rushed 13 times for 94 yards and a touchdown and completed 12-of-17 passes for 107 yards and two scores in last week’s win over the Cowboys, his first game with three touchdowns since Week 4 against Football Team. Any consideration for Jackson has to revolve around his ability to throw touchdown passes and what he can do in the rushing game because he’s passed for over 200 yards only four times this season, half of which came in the first two weeks.
His matchup looks good on paper too, as the Browns have allowed the seventh-most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season, which was
