Week 3 Preseason Notes (8/20/18)

Ravens (3-0) 20 vs. Colts (1-1) 19

 

ADP – RISING / FALLING

 

RISING

 

 

Lamar Jackson – BAL – QB

ADP – (QB) – 29 (OVERALL) – 231

Jackson was 7-for-15 passing for 49 yards adding 26 rushing yards with 1 TD / 0 INT in Monday’s preseason game versus the Colts.

(Flacco remains entrenched as the Ravens starter but Jackson would have immediate streaming potential if given an opportunity. The Ravens have decent options on offense in WRs Michael Crabtree, Willie Sneed, John Brown, TE Hayden Hurst and pass catching RB Buck Allen).

 

Kenneth Dixon – BAL – RB

ADP – (RB) – 65 (OVERALL) – 218

Dixon had 6 carries for 32 yards (5.3 AVG) adding 3 catches for 24 yards in Monday’s preseason game versus the Colts.

(Dixon was a popular sleeper pick last season but struggled with injuries having very little impact. Now finally healthy Dixon has a chance to carve out a role but is behind starter Alex Collins and pass catching running back Buck Allen. Alex Collins has had fumbling issues in the past but injuries will likely be Dixon’s only opportunity for more touches).

 

Jordan Wilkins – IND – RB

ADP – (RB) – 57 (OVERALL) – 163

Wilkins had 7 carries for 27 yards (3.7 AVG) adding 2 catches for 17 yards in Monday’s preseason game versus the Ravens.

Wilkins looks to be moving up the depth chart with Marlon Mack dealing with a hamstring injury and Nyheim Hines struggling with fumbling issues. Wilkins also fumbled in the game but nowhere near the level of Hynes issues. Wilkins has the skill and upside to win the lead role and flirt with RB2 value).

 

Hayden Hurst – BAL – TE

ADP – (TE) – 17 (OVERALL) – 176

Hurst caught 1 pass for 15 yards and 2 TD in Monday’s preseason game versus the

Colts.

(Hurst has a ton of Athletic ability and there is an opportunity for targets in a revamped Ravens offense. The Ravens also heavily use tight ends in their offense going back to Todd Heap and Dennis Pitta. Hurst is more of a name to monitor in dynasty but he could have some streaming appeal later in the season as his role grows).

 

FALLING

 

Nyheim Hines – IND – RB

ADP – (RB) – 58 (OVERALL) – 150

Hynes had 5 carries for 12 yards (2.4 AVG) adding 1 catch for 9 yards in Monday’s preseason game versus the Ravens.

(Hynes has struggled with fumbles with four in only two preseason games after fumbling on the kickoff return to open the second half. Hynes has speed and talent but is unlikely to make much of an impact and is more of a name to monitor in dynasty leagues).
