5Alex Collins ($5,000) and Ravens Defense ($3,800)
The Cleveland Browns have the #1 ranked run defense by Football Outsiders’ DVOA, but have also given up 28+ fantasy points to opposing backfields in 4 of their past 6 games. Their run defense is actually very good when healthy, but trailing week after week causes game script to allow opponents to just continue to run and rack up the counting stats. I expect more of the same this week for the Browns, as they are 7.5-point home underdogs to the Ravens. Alex Collins has seen 17+ touches each of the past 4 games, including 2+ receptions in all 4. Collins has scored 5 touchdowns in that time, and I look for the team to continue to revolve their offense around him as they push for a playoff spot. The Ravens defense is pretty obvious; DeShone Kizer has thrown multiple interceptions in 5 games this season, including 3 against the Ravens in their first matchup. The Browns are also tied for 4th in the NFL in sacks taken with 41, while the Ravens defense is tied for 3rd in sacks with 40. $3,800 is expensive, but well worth it for the sack floor and turnover upside the Ravens bring in this matchup.
