NFL Playoff Fantasy Picks: Start 'Em, Sit 'Em for Ravens vs Titans Wild Card Game
By Max Staley
The Baltimore Ravens and Tennessee Titans will meet in a rematch of last year's Divisional Round game, when Tennessee shocked Baltimore, 28-12. Despite getting the game at home this time, the Titans will be back in a familiar role on Sunday, playing as 3-point underdogs, per FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL playoff odds.
If you're still looking to get your fantasy football fix, there are plenty of formats available to keep playing throughout the NFL Playoffs. Here's some start 'em, sit 'em advice for this Ravens-Titans Wild Card Round clash.
Lamar Jackson Fantasy
Start Lamar Jackson, QB, Baltimore Ravens: Lamar Jackson may have underwhelmed fantasy managers throughout most of the year, but he finally turned it on down the stretch. Over his final four games, Jackson averaged 175.5 yards through the air and 84.0 per game on the ground. He recorded 12 total TDs in that time. Against a Titans defense that hasn't been able to stop anyone all year, Jackson should be in for another high-scoring game.
Derrick Henry Fantasy
Start Derrick Henry, RB, Tennessee Titans: Derrick Henry has a knack for dominating opponents when the weather gets cold, and he's looked no different against Baltimore. Henry turned 28 carries into 133 yards and a TD when these two met earlier this season, and King Henry exploded for 202 yards from scrimmage on 32 touches in the Divisional Round. Baltimore has one of the best defenses in the league, but it hasn't managed to stop Henry yet.
Marquise Brown Fantasy
Sit Marquise Brown, WR, Baltimore Ravens: Marquise Brown is capable of blowup games, but he's just as likely to post a dud. Over his last four games, he's had two with at least 50 receiving yards (including a 98-yard outing) and two below 45 yards. While the Titans are a cakewalk of a matchup, Brown is the clear-cut No. 2 option behind Mark Andrews. Brown is a bit too risky to trust on Sunday.
Jonnu Smith Fantasy
Sit Jonnu Smith, TE, Tennessee Titans: Jonnu Smith has all the talent in the world, but he's just not involved in the offense enough. He's averaging a paltry 3.2 targets per game over his last five outings after seeing 5.8 per contest over his first five. With the Titans likely to take a run-heavy approach, most of the Titans' throws will likely be funneled toward A.J. Brown and Corey Davis, who both saw 11 targets last week.
