Big Ben is coming off a career game, but the Ravens are 10th against fantasy quarterbacks and Big Ben projects as a low QB1 this week.
The Colts dropped to 17th against fantasy quarterbacks, thanks to last week's game. Keep in mind that Big Ben tallied six of the 14 passing touchdowns the Colts have given up this year last week. The Colts are much tougher on D than they showed; it is not a great matchup for Eli coming out of his bye week.

The Ravens have allowed just one more passing TD all season than Ben threw on Sunday, so, expect a dialed down effort but a solid home prime time outing nonetheless.
