NFL Week 2

Baltimore Ravens DFS Spin

Lamar Jackson completed 20-of-25 passes for 275 yards and three scores in the Ravens' Week 1 win over the Browns. The 2019 MVP picked up where he left off in 2019 and shredded the Browns. In typical Jackson fashion, he was so dominant that Baltimore was able to pull him for Robert Griffin III in the fourth quarter. Jackson looked great in all facets of the game including the two-minute drill. He orchestrated a seven-play, 69-yard drive in 35 seconds to put a final touchdown on the board before half-time. He also added 45 yards on the ground. The Ravens get an exciting date with the Texans next week in a matchup that features two of the league's stars at quarterback. He'll continue to battle Mahomes for the No. 1 fantasy quarterback spot in Week 2.

Houston Texans DFS Spin

Deshaun Watson completed 20-of-32 passes for 253 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Texans' 34-20, Week 1 loss to the Chiefs on Thursday night, adding a second touchdown and 27 yards as a rusher. It was a nightmare night for Watson before the fourth quarter came around and he was able to pick apart a soft prevent defense for a couple meaningless, garbage-time touchdowns. They weren't meaningless to fantasy managers, however, as the scores definitely saved Watson's week. He appeared to really be missing DeAndre Hopkins' reliable hands and route-running skills as a safety valve. Houston went with a bunch of speed at receiver minus Hopkins, but this offensive line was terrible all night, and plays weren't able to develop down the field. Watson's touchdown pass was a 20-yard hookup with TE Jordan Akins. He could have had a second touchdown pass to Will Fuller, but it was under-thrown a bit. Watson later capped the drive with a one-yard rushing score. Things won't get much easier Week 2 when the Texans host the Ravens.
