The Ravens once again failed to register a dominant win as this time the defense let down while Joe Flacco excelled with Anquan Boldin. Lets look.
Joe Flacco: 22/31 for 262 yards with 3 TD’s and 0 INT’s. This is the kind of game I expected to see from Flacco from the beginning and its possible he was just in a slump the first two games. Its nice to see his on the same page with Boldin and its now safe to reinstall him into lineups.
Ray Rice: 15 carries for 80 yards along with 4 catches for 16 yards. Rice left this game with a knee injury and the damage has not been revealed yet. Keep close tabs on this and dust off Willis McGahee in case. Rice still has not scored this season but he had the making of a very good game before the injury. Hold your breath.
Anquan Boldin: 8 catches for 142 yards with 3 TD’s. Wow what a game. Boldin is the go-to-guy in this offense unlike in Arizona where Larry Fitzgerald was THE MAN. Boldin is in position to have a huge year and in both catches and TD’s. Hope for good health.
Derrick Mason: 4 catches for 30 yards. Mason is still good for his 4 catches per game but the yardage is way down and is not much more than a bench WR.
Todd Heap: 4 catches for 46 yards. Heap was solid but not spectacular. Makes the perfect bye week fill in for Jason Witten owners next week.
Seneca Wallace: 18/24 for 141 yards with 1 TD and 0 UNT’s. Wallace might have played his last game for a bit as Jake Delhomme is expected to be back next week. Either way he had no fantasy football value.
Peyton Hillis: 22 carries for 144 yards with 1 TD along with 7 catches for 36 yards. This is a stock to be looking into this week as Hillis too full advantage of the opportunity created when Jerome Harrison sat out with injury. Hillis is a very good receiver and is a power straight ahead back. Why not?
Josh Cribbs: 5 catches for 58 yards. Josh Cribbs is Devin Hester. Nothing to get excited about here unless you play in a league with return yardage.
Mohammud Massaquoi: shutout! If you haven’t dropped Massaquoi yet than now is the time to do so.
Ben Watson: 5 catches for 47 yards with 1 TD. Watson has one or two big games a season but don’t fall for it.
