Remember: have your week 10 fantasy lineup set by Thursday night, as the Baltimore Ravens and Atlanta Falcons play at 8:20. If you have Ravens QB Joe Flacco, you’re probably already starting him, but this week would be a great time to pair him with Ravens WR Anquan Boldin.
The Falcons rank near the bottom of the league in pass defense, and have given up long touchdown receptions of 83, 80, 64, 58, and 34 yards this year, plus a handful of short TDs. If Boldin is ever going to have a breakout game as a Raven, it could certainly come against this young run-first, interception-second, coverage-whenever secondary.
Plus Atlanta has been strong against the run, ranking sixth in the league, which might force Baltimore to throw. However, one concern is the Falcons’ strong home field advantage — though the Ravens have already won in road games against the New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers, they’re only averaging 14.25 points per game in their four trips outside Baltimore.
