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.

Not a good matchup at all and Jeremy Hill could vulture TDs, but you can't run away from the hype now.
T-Rich could have life still but against a tough Broncos run D on the road? I'm not betting on a huge day.

There is not a ton of upside here so if you have a solid player on the bench then it is advised you go with them in Week 1.

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.
12 carries for 36 yards (3.0ypc) would actually be an upgrade on his preseason production.
