If you need some help building your fantasy lineup, here's some start 'em, sit 'em advice for this Thursday Night Football matchup.
Mark Andrews Fantasy
Start Mark Andrews, TE, Baltimore Ravens: Mark Andrews continues to play a major role in this Baltimore Ravens offense and ranks as TE2 in football. He's fresh off a Week 9 performance in which he saw a season-high 10 targets and is poised to put up impressive numbers each and every week. Miami's defense allows the third-most passing yards per game (280.9) and presents one of the most favorable matchups of the year.
Jacoby Brissett Fantasy
Start Jacoby Brissett, QB, Miami Dolphins: Similarly to Miami, the Ravens struggle against the pass. Baltimore allows the second-most passing yards per game (282.5) and ranks bottom-10 in Football Outsiders' pass-defense DVOA metric. Tua Tagovailoa is listed as questionable for Thursday night and Brissett is thrust into a favorable matchup if he gets the start. Brissett managed only QB21 numbers last week against the average Texans' secondary, but you should like the Dolphins to attack Baltimore's unit in Week 10.
Le'Veon Bell Fantasy
Sit Le'Veon Bell, RB, Baltimore Ravens: The Ravens have relied on Devonta Freeman, and not Le'Veon Bell, on the ground as Latavius Murray continues to struggle with injury. Freeman put up top-12 RB numbers last week and could be poised for a big workload again in Week 10. This all came with Bell's heaviest workload of the season but that number topped out at 11 total opportunities. Freeman saw 16 opportunities and capitalized with 79 rushing yards, 2 receptions and a receiving TD. Miami ranks 18th in Football Outsiders' rush-defense DVOA metric and we're not trusting the clear second RB option if Murray misses another game.
Myles Gaskin Fantasy
Sit Myles Gaskin, RB, Miami Dolphins: Miami clearly relied on the run in Week 9 and Myles Gaskin put together his highest workload of the season on 20 rushes 6 targets. His six receptions and 1 TD saved an RB12 performance but he struggled with just 1.7 rushing yards per attempt. Baltimore's defense ranks 12th in Football Outsiders' rush-defense DVOA metric and Miami won't offer Gaskin the same amount of opportunities against a strong unit.
