Houston ranks 22nd against fantasy quarterbacks, even though they have DE J.J. Watt, there is not enough supporting cast to consistently stop opposing quarterbacks.
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.
  
Jon Collins

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.
