Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Marquise Brown caught 5-of-14 targets for 80 yards and a touchdown in a 41-17 loss to the Bengals in Week 7.

Fantasy Impact: Brown led the team in targets and receiving in the loss. His 14 targets were encouraging, despite the presence of first-round rookie Rashod Bateman, who was appearing in just his second game. The owner of six touchdowns through seven games, Brown will be a WR2 in Week 9 against the Vikings after his bye in Week 8.

Baltimore Ravens running back Ty'Son Williams carried the ball twice for 10 yards and added two catches for 24 yards in a 41-17 loss to the Bengals in Week 7.

Fantasy Impact: Williams had been inactive in the previous week but an ankle injury to Latavius Murray got him the nod in Week 7. Williams has seen his upside capped by a three-man committee in the Baltimore backfield. He will face the Vikings in Week 9 after a bye in Week 8.

Baltimore Ravens running back Le'Veon Bell carried the ball five times for five yards and lost a yard on his lone reception in a 41-17 loss to the Bengals in Week 7.

Fantasy Impact: Bell isn't enjoying much success with the Ravens, having gained just 34 yards on 17 carries in three games. That, coupled with the fact that the Ravens have been deploying a three-man committee in their backfield, makes Bell a hard guy to lean on in fantasy. He will be on bye in Week 8 before a matchup against the Vikings in Week 9.

Baltimore Ravens running back Devonta Freeman carried the ball four times for 14 yards and a touchdown in a 41-17 loss to the Bengals in Week 7. He added 25 yards on three catches.

Fantasy Impact: Freeman punched in a one-yard rushing score in the loss. It is clear that the Ravens want to utilize a three-man backfield, which is cutting into Freeman's upside in fantasy. He will head into a bye in Week 8 before the Ravens face the Vikings in Week 9.

Baltimore Ravens Lamar Jackson completed 15-of-31 passes for 257 yards and a touchdown in a 41-17 loss to the Bengals in Week 7. He added 88 rushing yards on 12 carries in the loss.

Fantasy Impact: Jackson struggled against the Cincinnati defense, taking five sacks and only completing 48.4% of his passes. His touchdown went to Marquise Brown on a 39-yard pass in the third quarter. Jackson didn't have a great afternoon but his 88 rushing yards helped to offset that in fantasy. The Ravens are on bye in Week 8 before they face the Vikings in Week 9.

The Cincinnati Bengals D/ST played well in a 41-17 win over the Ravens in Week 7. Cincinnati sacked Lamar Jackson five times in the win.

Fantasy Impact: The Bengals came up big in the win, breaking a five-game losing streak to Baltimore. Cincinnati has a good shot at keeping it going next week as they draw an excellent matchup against the Jets. New York rookie quarterback Zach Wilson is unlikely to play after injuring his knee, so the Bengals will go against backup signal-called Mike White. Treat Cincinnati as a top-10 defense for that contest.

Cincinnati Bengals kicker Evan McPherson made both of his field goals and five extra points in a 41-17 win over the Ravens in Week 7.

Fantasy Impact: McPherson nailed a 52-yarder in the first quarter and later tacked on a 30-yarder. The rookie kicker has made 9-of-12 field goals and all 22 of his extra points thus far. He will kick against the Jets in Week 8.

Cincinnati Bengals tight end C.J. Uzomah caught 3-of-3 targets for 91 yards and two touchdowns in a 41-17 win over the Ravens in Week 7.

Fantasy Impact: Uzomah hauled in scores of 55 and 32 yards, giving him three touchdowns in his last two games and five on the year. The veteran tight end has all of a sudden emerged as a legit TE1 option in fantasy. He will face off against the Jets in Week 8.

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd caught 4-of-7 targets for 39 yards in a 41-17 win over Baltimore in Week 7.

Fantasy Impact: Boyd salvaged his afternoon with a 25-yard reception late in the third quarter. Unfortunately, slow afternoons have become the norm for Boyd when both Tee Higgins and Ja'Marr Chase are on the field. He will be a shaky flex in Week 8 against the Jets.

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins caught 7-of-15 passes for 62 yards in a 41-17 win over the Ravens in Week 7.

Fantasy Impact: Higgins led the team with 15 targets, but he was a distant third in receiving yardage behind Ja'Marr Chase and C.J. Uzomah. Higgins has taken a backseat to Chase but he is still a solid, weekly WR2, especially if he continues to see a high number of targets. He will face the Jets in Week 8.

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase caught 8-of-10 targets for 201 yards and a touchdown in a 41-17 win over the Ravens in Week 7.

Fantasy Impact: Chase ripped off an 82-yard touchdown in the third quarter to help the Bengals pull away from Baltimore. The star rookie now has 754 receiving yards, the most for a player in the first seven games of his career since the AFL merged with the NFL. Chase will be a no-brainer WR1 in Week 8 against the Jets.

Cincinnati Bengals running back Samaje Perine carried the ball 11 times for 52 yards and a touchdown in a 41-17 win over the Ravens in Week 7. He also added a 23-yard reception in the contest.

Fantasy Impact: Perine ended up seeing the same amount of touches that starter Joe Mixon did and posted a very similar stat line to Mixon's. Perine will continue to be a flex-worthy option in fantasy if he continues to see double-digit carries, even when Mixon is active. The Bengals face the Jets in Week 8.

Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon carried the ball 12 times for 59 yards and a touchdown in a 41-17 win over the Ravens in Week 7. He was not targeted in the win.

Fantasy Impact: Mixon was having a slow fantasy day but he weaved his way into the end zone on a 21-yard run in the fourth quarter, his longest run of the day. The veteran tailback has been splitting carries with Samaje Perine since injuring his ankle a few weeks back but he remains a solid RB1 in fantasy. Mixon will take on the Jets in Week 8.

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow turned in an excellent outing in a 41-17 blowout win over the Ravens in Week 7. Burrow completed 23-of-38 passes for 416 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception in the win.

Fantasy Impact: Burrow pulled his team into a 5-2 tie with the Ravens atop the AFC North while snapping a five-game losing streak to Baltimore in the process. He found star rookie wideout Ja'Marr Chase for an 82-yard touchdown in the third quarter to break the game open. His other two scores went to tight end C.J. Uzomah. Burrow now has 17 touchdowns and eight interceptions through seven games. He will be a high-end QB2 in Week 8 against the Jets.

Tyler Higbee caught five passes for 46 yards on Sunday against Detroit.

Fantasy Impact: Higbee finished only behind Cooper Kupp in targets (8) against the Lions, but finished behind Robert Woods in the reception and yardage department. He continues to need a touchdown to have a big game, but he offers a fairly safe floor in PPR leagues as he has hauled in five passes in four of seven games so far this season.

Van Jefferson caught four passes for 43 yards and a touchdown against the Lions on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Jefferson might have been a streaming play for some this week with so many big name players either injured or on bye and it paid off if you were one of those people! His seven targets were a season-high.

Category: Game Recaps


Robert Woods caught six passes for 70 yards against Detroit on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Woods also hauled in a two-point conversion as well. He was fourth on the team in targets, but caught all six of them to finish behind only Cooper Kupp in the receptions and yardage department against the Lions.

Category: Game Recaps


Cooper Kupp caught 10 passes for 156 yards with two touchdowns against the Lions on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Kupp is simply a cheatcode at this point, catching two touchdowns in four of seven games so far this season. He has also seen at least 10 targets in all seven games this year.

Darrell Henderson Jr. took 15 carries for 45 yards to go along with three receptions for 19 yards through the air on Sunday against Detroit.

Fantasy Impact: It wasn't the best game for Henderson, but he still dominated the backfield with Sony Michel seeing just two carries. The big games will still be there for Henderson moving forward as long as he is dominating the touches in the backfield.

Matthew Stafford completed 28-of-41 passes for 334 yards with three touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact: It was just another day at the office for Stafford in his first game against his former team. He has tossed at least three touchdowns in four of seven games so far this season.
