Week 1 PPR Rankings

J.K. Dobbins Note

Must-start in Week 1. Dobbins has been kept in bubble wrap for the entire preseason, with the expectations set that he will assume RB1 duties in the Baltimore backfield. The Texans run defense has been a bottom-5 unit over the past three seasons, so Dobbins should be set for a very productive day rushing. The Texans tried to plug up their interior with the additions of Sheldon Rankins and Hassan Ridgeway this offseason, but it remains to be seen if new head coach Demeco Ryans can turn this unit into the stingy 49ers run defense of the south with overall inferior personnel.

Zay Flowers Note

He's a first-round rookie WR with a clear path to targets. He's the only Ravens pass-catcher that hasn't missed significant time this preseason with any injury concerns, so I like him as my highest-ranked Baltimore WR entering Week 1. The best ability is availability... which has not been the case for either of his teammates Odell Beckham Jr. or Rashod Bateman.

Before I can click the button on Bateman, I need to see that he is fully healthy with zero limitations. The Texans have an underrated secondary - 15th in defensive EPA/dropback on defense in 2022 - and that makes me lean toward sitting non-Flowers Ravens WRs in Week 1. Very much want to see how the targets are distributed with the starting offense playing a full allotment of snaps.

Odell Beckham Jr. Note

The Texans boast a myriad of talented cornerbacks from Steven Nelson, Tavierre Thomas, Derek Stingley and Shaquill Griffin. So again, the individual WR matchups for the Ravens WRs I do not love. However, if I were to bet on a one finding the end zone, it would probably be OBJ, given his red-zone prowess the last time we saw him healthy with the LA Rams. Still, I'd rather just leave him on my bench as I anxiously await the target distribution in the Ravens' new-look offense.
