COVID-19 continues to impact the 2020 NFL season and the sporting world at large. After news this week of several positive tests within the Baltimore Ravens organization, Sunday's game between the Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers looked in jeopardy.

This Week 12 matchup has now been postponed to Tuesday, although there's no guarantee the game will be played, especially since Baltimore's outbreak appears serious.

Fantasy managers with players from either side in their lineup should immediately look elsewhere with the severe possibility that this game isn't played at all. And given it's taking place after every other game is concluded, you'll be stuck with 0's in your lineup if it gets cancelled.

Any tuned-in fantasy manager should've known that this outcome was likely given the reports out Baltimore this week. Hopefully, you already have backup options in mind. If you don't, no need to worry, as there are plenty of replacements on the market if you're looking to make a move before Sunday.

Anyone who was looking to start a QB on either side of this matchup should turn to our Week 12 fantasy football QB streaming guide.

Fantasy managers worried about wide receiver can turn to Emmanuel Sanders (47% rostered on Yahoo!), Sammy Watkins (43%), or deep threat Nelson Agholor (40%).

Backup options at RB are a little more scarce, but Philip Lindsay (54%), Carlos Hyde (44%), and Malcolm Brown (25%) are worth consideration.

Managers in need of someone to fill in for Mark Andrews or Eric Ebron at tight end could look at Jordan Reed (24%), or one of the Indianapolis Colts' TEs in Trey Burton (17%) and Jack Doyle (6%).
