Houston Texans Fantasy Spin
Will Fuller (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. It's the first time Fuller's officially practiced since injuring his hamstring back in Week 7. Kenny Stills totaled nine targets on 90.5 percent of Houston's offensive snaps in the interim but projects to return to his previous slot role if Fuller's cleared for Sunday (which has yet to be determined). It's slightly worrisome for DeAndre Hopkins since he's buoyed Fuller's absence into a whopping 36 percent target share in the Texans' last three games. Hopkins merely saw 28 percent of the team's targets before the burner's hamstring injury.
Baltimore Ravens Fantasy Spin
Lamar Jackson completed 15-of-17 passes for 223 yards and three touchdowns in the Ravens' Week 10 win over the Bengals, adding 65 yards and one touchdown as a runner. Jackson made this look like a video game. To start the game, Jackson hit Marquise Brown over the top for a big gain. The Bengals had to know they were in trouble at this point, and they were. Jackson found Mark Andrews for two scores and Brown for his third. The play of the game was on a signature designed run. Jackson burst up the middle before putting multiple Bengals on the turf with a nasty spin move before beating the rest of the defense to the end zone for a 47-yard touchdown. It was an MVP-level performance, one that he'll look to build upon next week against Deshaun Watson and the Texans. Lamar will obviously be an elite QB1 then.
