Fantasy Football Maniax
Baltimore always has a tough run defense, but Bernard is probably going to see 20 touches and he puts up big numbers, because they give him the ball in space.
The Falcons have a terrible front seven, I think Thomas could have a big game in the screen game.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Not a good matchup at all and Jeremy Hill could vulture TDs, but you can't run away from the hype now.
Thomas carries a stick in PPR formats but in standard he could be a bit ho hum in this one.

Figures to be a low-scoring affair. Most of Gio's points last year against the Ravens came in the passing game, so it's tough to love him in standard leagues this week.
