How Do the Ravens Look at the Key Positions in Fantasy Football in 2018?

The 2018 season ought to be an interesting one for the Baltimore Ravens after missing the playoffs in 2017 with a massive last game letdown against the Cincinnati Bengals that would have clinched them a playoff spot.

The team is trying to reload the roster on the fly, making sure they don’t fall too far back in the AFC, and more so the AFC North against the likes of the Champion Steelers, Bengals and Browns.

Today we take a look at what the Ravens will look like Fantasy Football wise for those that want to use a promo from fanduel and get ready for the 2018 campaign.

Quarterback:

Joe Flacco – Still the guy under center until Lamar Jackson pushed him out, this is a critical season for Flacco, who in 2017 was the 24th-overall fantasy quarterback. There is no doubt his time as a top NFL starter is probably over at this point, but he did put up about 17 points a game last season as a fantasy starter, so he might be good to store away on your bench come draft day.

Running Back:

Alex Collins – Last season Collins turned some heads, but also drove fantasy owners crazy as there was times the team would simply not go to him as much as many times as owners wanted, leaving them shaking their heads. He wrapped up the season as the 16th-best running back in fantasy football, giving owners hope that he will be able to keep up the good work and have an even bigger 2018 season now that he’s clearly the #1 starter at the RB spot.

Wide Receiver:

Michael Crabtree – One of the newest Ravens, this one is a tough one to figure out, and it is going to take a number of preseason games to see what type of impact he’s going to have on the offense this season. Crabtree had Amari Cooper with him in Oakland, so he was basically the second option, where that won’t be the case in B-More. He has the fifth-most touchdown receptions over the past three seasons with 25 scores. He will be the number one guy for the Ravens, and if he can have some early success with Flacco and the offense as a whole can get going, he’s probably a good guy to have as maybe the number three wide out on your roster. Look for Crabtree to have some ups and downs for his new team in 2018.
