BALTIMORE RAVENS – Professor’s NFL Team Flash Card. In 2020, I think the BAL DST is a very solid defense and I consider them 3rd best in my early rankings. Bal has the best K in Tucker and probadly the top QB in L Jackson. I am curious if Jackson will rush as much as the increase in injury in QB rushing has been seen before.

The BAL team had a solid rushing forward player in Ingram but he was underused in 2019. Now BAL added J K Dobbins to make it a RBBC. Because of the split I rank them ar 30 and 32nd. Injury make either a stronger RB2 type. Hill also has talent but BAL drafting Dobbins seemed a vote against Hill and Edwards.  I did ranked the uncertainty levels at average and high.

BAL was one of the top TE users in 2019 and That continues with Andrews being ranked at 5th TE. A very good choice if you miss out of the top 4 TEs in 2020 drafts.

Finally the WRs are Brown and the rest. Brown on paper is a WR3 ranked at 36 because of the bias to QB rushing and TE passing. I ranked the other WRs but unless an injury they are not significant for 2020.

=================================

2016 to 2019 Positional Based PPR Fantasy Point Averages (FPA), Team Usages, and Differences from 2019 to 4-year Averages

This table presents:

  • Team
  • Position
  • 2016 to 2019 Fantasy Point Averages 
  • 4 Year Sum of Averages
  • % of Positional Usage by the 4-Year Date
  • % of 2019 Team Usages
  • DIFF – 2019 vs last 4-year % Usages (Improving or Declining)

The QB and TEs improved in 2019 by 8.8% and 3.5%. Having a strong QB who can pass to his TEs added firepower to the Ravens. The QB/TE positions in 2019 were the top in the last 4 years for the team. On the other hand, the RB/WR were average or below in the last 4-years. The 2019 team was good but unbalanced. I will be watching for a turn to a more balanced team. I would be cautious in 2020 drafts with the BAL RB/WRs and would not invest a pick above ADP price.

=================================

2015 to 2019 Team Level Targets Per Game, 2019 Usage, 5 Year of Targets/Game Usage, and DIFF in 2019.

This table contains:

  • Team
  • Position
  • 2015 to 2019 Targets Per Game
  • 5 Year Average of Targets Per Game
  • %2019 Usages in Targeting
  • % 5-Year Positional Usage Average
  • DIFF 2019 vs 5-Year Average of Team Positional Usages

BALTIMORE RAVENS – Professor’s NFL Team Flash Card. Overall Comments: RBs have dramatically dropped in targeting usages by 11% in 2019. That is an extreme situation that adds to my level of concern for 2020. BAL RBs are Mark Ingram, J.K. Dobbins, Justice Hill, and Gus Edwards. Redrafts are looking at Ingram at low RB 2 levels only most likely due to the 2019 season declines.

TEs on the other hand were the show in 2019 by a whopping 22% in targeting. BAL using a rushing QB seems to be connected with the drop in RB and increase in TE usages.  Mark Andrews the TE is currently in the top of TE 1s in redrafts. Expecting him to be highly used. FYI Nick Boyle could be a slippery TE handcuff given the expect 2020 season.

Finally, BAL WRs were also under used by a declining 11%. I may gamble in 2020 on Marquise Brown as a nice WR 3 type with some upside? Hard to imagine in 2020 the BAL WRs will still be at 2 T/G. Gamble for sure.
