Kizer has the ability to beat the Colts and put up respectable numbers against them. We'll likely see the run game used more effectively, but Kizer will still have success with the pass and his own running ability.

DeShone Kizer struggles against strong Ravens defense

DeShone Kizer played only part of the game in Week 2 after leaving with a migraine and being replaced by Kevin Hogan briefly. Kizer was able to return and finished with a rough stat line. He completed 15 of 31 pass attempts for 182 yards, zero touchdowns, and three interceptions. He added five rushes for 26 yards.

Fantasy Impact

The Ravens have an excellent pass defense, so it's no surprise that the rookie struggled. Kizer continues to be a low-end QB2 with decent rushing upside, and he draws a favorable matchup against the Colts in Week 3, who just surrendered 332 passing yards to a struggling Carson Palmer. If you are an Andrew Luck owner and he is still out, or if you are a Tyrod Taylor or Carson Wentz owner (facing the Broncos and the Giants, respectively, in Week 3), you could do worse than streaming Kizer, but you could most likely do better, too.
