Baltimore Ravens DFS Spin
Lamar Jackson completed just 15-of-28 passes for 97 yards and one touchdown in the Ravens' 34-20, Week 3 loss to the Chiefs Monday night. Jackson rushed nine times for 83 yards to help save his fantasy day some, but this was a career worst passing day for last year's MVP, as his previous career low for passing yards was 105 yards. Jackson had 35 yards rushing and passing at halftime. The Ravens tried to make a second-half run, closing the gap to seven points after Jackson threw a short touchdown to Nick Boyle with 14:55 left in the fourth quarter. But it was too little, too late after a horrendous first half by the Ravens as a team. Jackson has struggled multiple times against Chiefs DC Steve Spagnuolo now in his career but should bounce back in a big way next week against Washington.
Washington Football Team DFS Spin
Washington head coach Ron Rivera said "there is a cutoff point for me" in waiting for QB Dwayne Haskins to improve. Rivera reportedly said the Football Team's offensive players "deserve better" from the quarterback. It's a stinging critique of Haskins after his disastrous Week 3 performance against the Browns in which he completed 21-of-37 passes for 224 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions. Outside of the team's scripted plays to start the game, Haskins appears lost, often locking in on one receiver and forcing the ball into tight coverage. Kyle Allen is listed as Haskins' backup. Alex Smith has been inactive for the first three weeks of the season. Allen coming in as the team's starting QB couldn't be worse for their pass catchers than Haskins has been.
