Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey says he “definitely would” hit his grandma on the field. “I love you, but you know that.” pic.twitter.com/9fQoHCAuxJ— Mark Long (@APMarkLong) September 13, 2018
It seems like there is no line Ramsey won't cross.
The New England Patriots are thin at wideout, but despite that fact, they won't be calling on Ramsey's grandmother to join the receiving corp, so he won't have to worry about tackling her. He will, however, have to deal with All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski.
As if it wasn't a big enough matchup already, Ramsey recently claimed Gronk wasn't as great as people said he was. While Ramsey is a shutdown cornerback who has proven he has the ability to take players out of games, it's hard to imagine him being able to blanket Gronkowski.
Not because of his natural ability, but because of the simple fact that Jacksonville doesn't put him on tight ends.
With all this talk about a potential Gronk vs. Jalen Ramsey matchup, it's interesting to note that Ramsey has been targeted in man coverage vs. a TE just three times in his career.

That means unless the Jaguars are switching their gameplan around, Gronk will be covered by someone other than the All-Pro cornerback. That likely means he'll have the same ceiling, per usual, this week as one of the best fantasy tight end options around.
A Ramsey-Gronk matchup would be fantastic, though, so let's hope the football Gods answer us and give us a few plays of drama.
