PPR Fantasy Football:
Ravens QB Joe Flacco is a top ten fantasy option this week.
Here we are folks, it is already week five of the NFL season and before we know it the fantasy football regular season is going to be half over. Most leagues play a 13 or 14 game regular season, with the playoffs finishing in week 16, so if you are not playing with a sense of urgency yet, you should be.
Hopefully your team is not a hole at 1-3 or god forbid 0-4 but if you are, rest assured there is still hope. Regardless of whether your team is dominating or yet to find the win column, the key to continued success this season is the same, you need to have depth and need to navigate successfully through the bye weeks.
This week at the quarterback position, we have a few normal starters on bye such as Tony Romo, Matt Stafford, Carson Palmer and Josh Freeman. Thus, if you have one of those players you need to find someone else to be in your lineup this week.
There are a number of great options at quarterback this wee...

Ravens safety Ed Reed has taken on more of a leadership role in the locker room, and the eager youngsters on the team are reaping the benefits of his advice.
Reed has become a tireless teacher on topics including film study and keeping fit before and during a long NFL season. Reed knows quite a bit about both, given that he's tallied 59 interceptions, scored 14 touchdowns and...
The 2012 Baltimore Ravens have had many ups and downs to begin the NFL first quarter this season, both on and off the field. The Ravens found out that they lost Terrell Suggs for the first half of the season prior to the start of training camp, and wide receiver Torrey Smith found out that he lost his brother in a motorcycle accident just hours before the team’s third game. Through...
Last week: 3 (+0)
The Ravens are the 2nd best team in the AFC, by virtue of their 3-1 record, their head-to-head victory over the Patriots, and a point per play differential that ranks tied for 2nd in the league. However, they really left me disappointed against the Browns last week. This team really needs to kick their inconsistency habit. They’ll have a great chance...

Many have been asking all week which team in the NFL is the worst and the Kansas City Chiefs may be declared your winners once you realize how horrid they have been outside of their lone victory over New Orleans.
There are three other...

Ravens safety Ed Reed is playing at a high level this year, despite being 34 years old. He's also tutoring his teammates in the game of football when needed.
Appealing a $21,000 fine from the league office for his crushing hit on New England Patriots wide receiver Deion Branch, Ravens star free safety Ed Reed characterized NFL rule enforcement as confusing.
Reed was fined for striking a defenseless player in the head and neck area and was penalized with a personal foul. Branch was shaken up, but unhurt and Reed shook hands with him...
The Ravens are 3-1 coming off 10 days rest while the struggling Chiefs are 1-3. Can you spell "Trap Game" ?I think coach Harbaugh is able to get his team in the "proper focus" frame of mind...and to avoid getting trapped into looking past the struggling Chiefs.The Ravens will try to again make things difficult for Matt Cassel, whose turnovers have been one...
Baltimore Ravens (3-1) at Kansas City Chiefs (1-3)
I ranked the Ravens ranked 3rd in my Power Rankings and called them the 2nd best team in the AFC behind Houston because of the head-to-head win over New England and their superior yards per play differential over New England. I think that New England and Baltimore are both going to finish around 12-4 and with Houston likely to win...
Ravens @ Chiefs
Sunday – 10/7/12
This Sunday at 1:00pm the 3-1 Ravens roll into Arrow Head Stadium in Kansas City to take on a struggling 1-3 Chiefs team. Baltimore leads the all-time series between the two with a 3-2 record. Their last meeting ended in a 30-7 beat down in the 2011 playoffs with the Ravens being the victor in that contest. Kansas City is 0-2 at home...
The Ravens are fairly healthy going into their Week 5 game against the Chiefs. It’s predictable because of the extra time off after playing a Thursday night game.
For the Ravens:
Limited participation: OT Jah Reid (calf)
Full participation: WR Torrey Smith (ankle)
For the Chiefs:
Did not participate: WR Jon Baldwin (hamstring), CB Jalil Brown (hamstring), DE Glen Dorsey (calf)...
The Ravens are well rested after 10 days off. That also means extra preparation by the coaching staff for their game Sunday afternoon against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Joe Flacco has been playing at a high level and that should continue against a banged up Chiefs defense. Flacco will pick on the Chiefs’ secondary with speedsters Torrey Smith and Jacoby Jones.
Additionally, Ray Rice...
