Ravens to field sub-par defense without Lewis or Webb
The loss of a top linebacker and top cornerback could allow opponents to put that little bit of extra pressure on the Ravens to break them, and that may result in big numbers on the scoreboard. A bad Ravens defense sounds as fictional as Harry Potter, but it just may become a reality with the injuries they're facing.
Remember the days of benching the running back you selected in the first round of your fantasy draft because he was going up against the Ravens? Those days are very much over. The Cowboys, 21st in the league in rushing, absolutely mauled the Ravens on the ground, racking up 227 rushing yards. When was the last time Felix Jones had a good game? He came in for 92 yards and a touchdown on only 18 carries. Most of that damage was done while Ray Lewis was still on the field.
The Ravens aren't just a matchup that you should no longer fear in fantasy - they're a matchup you can look forward to. It's a strange change for a defense that was consistently ruthless and dominant for over a decade.
