was going to a party, People should boy famous here, uh, come to you live from SportsCastr on This is Nalla Nalla Say hello to the people.
Um, yeah, I wanted to do a quick SportsCastr just, you know, talking about the Baltimore Ravens rested Rams.
Of course, you know that the Baltimore Ravens is my squad.
I do think we are going to win today.
And as you can see, the 40 20 is my prediction of the score.
Um, we have one of the most high powered offenses in the league, and I think that's gonna prove yourself tonight.
Um, we got one the if not the number one Q B in the league.
Currently right now in Lamar Jackson.
Um, and we're going up against the Rams team, That is ah, forth against the run.
And you know, I think that this this will be a very interesting game.
I think Aaron, Donald and those guys Jalen Ramsey, they're gonna be playing really well.
And I think that, um, we're gonna have to expose them in different ways that I think the Rams have been exposed to pass.
And this season, Um, but, you know, I think it'd be pretty interesting to see what happens now.
The Ravens are leading leading the NFL in rushing yards.
This get in this season.
They have 2031 in 10 games.
Um, press a huge feet, and we've been doing it against teams that are really good.
You know, we beat the Seahawks, we be the Patriots, Um, and and I feel like as we continue to keep winning, there's gonna be a lot of things that are gonna keep getting exposed, Just even like when we beat the Texans last week, we really overpowered the moon on the defense's honorable, which a lot of Lamar Jackson play and Rome a lot freer on office aside.
And I think that's that. My end up happening again.
Um, so I'm gonna go over some of the fantasy starters.
Draftkings um, you'll probably wanna have these guys in your starting line up for the night, and I also go over a few sleepers that I have that possibly might get off to.
Ah, pretty solid game tonight.
Um, but overall, I do have the Ravens win at 42 the Rams 20.
I think that the 20 I think one of the touchdowns that they possibly make it, maybe in garbage time.
What we've already kind of beat up on, Um, I don't think this offense or Jerry Golf Todd Gurley in and those boys are good enough this year to continue to play at an elite level.
And I think, um, this Rams team is very interesting when we talk about their offense.
Their offices has been a shell of himself, um, this entire year, and I think that part of that is because of Todd Gurley.
Now do I do I think you should start hard girls tonight? Of course, he He's a talented running back that could break off at any point in time, but he is playing one of the best defense in the league tonight, so it might be a very, very, ah, low scoring game for him, fantasy wise, and I think there's something that she should just keep him on.
Not to say that you shouldn't start him.
I think he's definitely one of those guys where you have to start him because of his elite talent.
But the Baltimore Ravens or not, we're not coming into this game just thinking, Oh, this is a regular game.
No, this is a new, important game.
We need to continue to win to solidify our playoff seeding and that first week.
But, um, with the chief's coming, you know, Warren ahead and seven for two to kind of get lost in the future games, and I think that we're trying to take games one at a time, and I think this is the best way for us to do.
And by us I mean, the Ravens is to make sure you take each game in the time you take the emotion out of some of these games for some of the players, because Mark Peters is going to face his, uh, his former team for the first time since he was traded to Baltimore.
But you're talking about a an offense.
Our offense is third and Lee, our defense is fifth in the league and are rushing.
Offense is first in the league.
Um, that's a huge, you know, we're like top 10 in almost every category other than our passing office, which I think, you know, we will, you know, continue to get better at and we'll start Thio progress and grow in that area.
But overall, I mean, this team did.
This Ravens team is a solid team in the last time we actually played.
The Rams was in 2018.
We beat them 33 7 now, granted, that was different RAM team at the time.
But either way, I think this might be another game where we just dominate them on both sides of the ball.
I think that there's there's no one who can really guard Lamar Jackson right now, even a coach and Sean McVeigh and their defense 1/4.
I don't I don't know if they'll be able to do that, you know what I'm saying? And I think that what other key pieces that are gonna be vital for us to win this game are guys like Mark Ingram, Mark Andrews and also our ah kind of running back fullback, which are, um, he know he's been playing pretty pretty consistently when he's getting in the game and he's also been able to actually score this this season.
He did score one touchdown and I think that's important to think about because when you got guys on our team like a gust Edwards and the Mark Ingram.
You don't look at Patrick Ricard like, Oh, this is a guy that we need to be worried about.
Thanks for the follow angel.
Um, is something that you have to be prepared for the because our entire team is predicated on the run, and with that, it opens up a lot of play action.
How the wood brown to be healthy today.
Um, Miles Boykin.
He's getting a lot of good playing time.
He's playing really, really well.
Um, even when you look at guys like Seth Roberts and Will's Knee, they're playing, they're playing great when they need you, right? So they know that men I get as much playing time as many targets as, Ah, Hollywood Brown or Mark Andrews or Nick Bull hate and hurts the tight ends that the trio of tight end that we have.
But But they're they're so they're solid guys.
And it's something to say when you have that many guys on your roster that can come up and step up and play when they need to make those big catches to run those good routes and to kind of keep the game going for us on the offensive side of all.
I think what it's having a coach like John Harbaugh, too, who's so aggressive and so willing to like, take chances and to allow, like Moammar Jackson, to really play the way he supposed to play.
It really puts us in a position where we can pretty much won any game.
And if you look, it begins, we did lose we.
There was some some Martin's, the area in the defense society ball.
At that point in time.
We did have some injuries and there's no excuse.
We should have definitely still went well.
I think we should have definitely still won the Browns game.
The Chiefs game was, was a tough game.
I mean, they're they're really good team and I think they kind of just controlled the game a little bit more than we did, and that's why they ultimately end up winning.
Excuse me, but I think this is a game where not only do you have a guy in Lamar Jackson who is an EVP candidate, but you have a team around him that loves to play for him and with him, and when you have that it changes the dynamic of of teammates and team and ****.
You know what I'm saying? It is completely different than I've ever seen.
This Ravens are organization other than when we had that great defense with Ray Lewis.
Every hello, Nana.
She just must want a camera time today.
So you know, when you think about this Ravens team, when you think about how great they have been this season, I don't think they're going to slow up today.
And I think today is, is is going to show people like, Hey, you guys are the real deal.
Um, And when I said that, we were gonna beat the Patriots and we beat them.
A lot of people like, Whoa, he still didn't pass the ball that much.
I said, OK, cool.
And then he comes back out, and then we bust the Texans ass like we beat them down like, really, really bad.
And it shows you it shows you that our team is more than just Lamar Jackson throwing the ball.
He can throw the ball, he can, he can throw accurately.
And I think he will throw even more as the season progresses.
But That's not the only thing that makes us go.
You know his legs allow us to really open up the field for a lot of different, different plays.
Um, he's able t get other people involved, like a Mark Ingram, Gus Edwards, et cetera, And we have power runners like these guys are going to run you over.
Um, and yes, that is a hell of a running back.
I really hope we keep him.
Who knows? I think another scene might be looking at him like a We might need to go get this guy, but if we can keep that that strong running back court together, we'll be pretty content team, especially if we go on.
So when the Super Bowl this year, which I do believe we have a chance to do, um, I don't want to speak too soon, but we have a solid T.
So I say that all to say, Let's let's go over some fantasy guys that you probably should start and I think are gonna have really solid games.
Um, Lamar Jackson And of course you got to start him.
I mean, because we're gonna be scoring and kind of Spurs.
I think Justin Tucker will have a pretty solid game.
Will probably get about 4 to 5 kicks.
Field goals, Um, and maybe three extra points you'd understand.
Um, because I just think that we're gonna be able to be that effective running the ball, passing the ball against his team.
And I think Jalen Ramsey, that's that's gonna be a tough task.
But excuse me, it appears on who is matched up against Hollywood.
Brown is one of the quickest receivers in the league right now.
And if he could get a step on him, you never know what might happen.
Um, Joe ever So the tight end for the ah, for the, um, the Rams that that is gonna be a solid start.
You know, Jared Goff is definitely like this.
Tight ends, especially Gerald.
Gerald Everett has had a pretty solid last few games.
He had one game where he really broke off, gets the Seattle defense where he had seven receptions, 400 thirty's and cures.
And, um, that was one of games that really like stood out to me because he was really playing really well against them.
Um, for that we do play pretty, pretty decent against tight ends.
Um, but like I said, I think, But Cooper, Cup, Brandin cooks and Robert was should all be playing tonight, and I think that might kind of take away from Gero Evers production.
But I think that Jared Goff will have to get the ball out pretty quickly.
And what? Having Marcus Peters, Jimmy Smith covering guys like Robert was branded cooks, et cetera.
It's gonna be extremely hard to get the boss of those guys without turning ball over.
Um, and I feel like a guy like Joe.
Everyone would be able to get open because he will have some of the mismatches against linebackers and in such, you know.
But even our linebackers have been playing out of their freaking minds.
So who knows what may happen with this team? So other thing I'm looking at two is Ah, Baltimore.
We like to take the time of possession and keep it.
You know, he likes to keep the ball on in our hands at all times.
That kind of control the game give our defense rests and all that kind of stuff.
I think that will help us out on the office society ball to or oh, you defense's side of Also, I'm very high on the defense Ravens defense today.
I don't think that they're going to get worn out, and I think that they will have the opportunity to really, really, um, we're down on this offense, you know? I think we're gonna see a lot of three and outs from them.
I think they might be able to get a few chunk plays.
But you got to remember our Jackson that when the other side of field is going to be able to pretty much eat, you know, take apart this entire defense.
Um, and in the Ramsdefense, like I said, they're good.
They're fourth in the league, they're not.
They're not scrubs, but we've already beaten the best in the league and we have the 40 Niners next week, and I think this is a statement game for us, and I think the game against the 40 Niners will probably be the biggest game of the season. Now.
Now, looking at it, I mean, we're looking at two teams that, um, are great.
They're they're two great teams.
Great defense is offensively.
We're both having really, really get seasons and what you're talking about, A team.
Two teams that are constructed with two potential.
Ah, you know, Coach of the Year candidates with cash on hand in and, um, John Harbaugh.
Nobody thought that John Harbaugh would lead a team with the Lamar Jackson start taking, too.
I said it straight up.
I don't think anybody thought that we could do that.
Of course, I've always had my faith because listen, I'm always going back with my boys.
I always believe in the Ravens, but a lot of people didn't think that we could do that.
A lot of people didn't think that Mark Jackson would make throws or the place to kind of excel us to the next level.
And I think one thing he's really so this year is that he could make those plays.
He can make those passes and he could you Hey, he can also be an effective passer and effective thinker.
So a lot of people say, Oh, he's running so much, even get hurt But he doesn't take big hits and then the one big hit he took, he initiated contact last week.
I'm against the Texans and you think about a guy who's that agile.
He's not a power runner and he's a He's a finesse runner and he can hit you with a double move so quick you're out of your shoes.
And he's done that to many, many players in this league this year.
But also he can hit you with that juke and hit his mark.
Hit is tight and Mark Andrews for you know, about a 15 yard ah reception and and Mark Andrews does the rest.
I do think there were going to go into this game very aggressive on often society ball we want we will be in L A.
So we won't have to worry about the cold weather on the ships.
Should be feeling really good out there.
Um, but I think a lot of people are asleep on this Ravens team still.
I mean, I think I think people think that, you know, we're good for who we've been playing, but they're not giving us are just do our credit because of the fact that all the more Jackson not passing water much, he still has over 2000 yards passing.
I mean, it's not like he hasn't been passing the ball and he almost has 1000 yards Russian.
You know, he's doing something that Ah lot of quarterbacks couldn't do in the league while he was in the league.
And, um, I just think you know, you you look at our defense when you look at our office and they're so elite right now, Um, this guy's a limit.
I said, I do think that we will win the Super Bowl this year, and I'm hoping that we do.
And maybe it might be a 40 Niners Ravens.
Ah, you know, redo.
Because, honestly, that's how I was looking.
But a good boy, famous.
Like I said, I got the Ravens winning 42 20 against the Rams.
Um, shout out to us.
I think we will improve it at nine and two.
And ah, we'll see what happens after this game.
But if you follow me a famous USA and also make sure you follow me on Twitter at Famous you famous Phillips and a listen podcast coming out tomorrow so we'll have a lot to talk about if we do in this gang piece
