MNF fantasy points projections to help you set your lineup

Need some last minute start/sit advice? Fantasy points projections can help, and we’ve got them for Week 12 Monday Night Football.

The 6-4 Los Angeles Rams host the 8-2 Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football to wrap up Week 12 of the 2019 NFL season. These two teams are going in opposite directions, as the Ravens with Lamar Jackson at the helm are tearing opponent’s apart while Jared Goff and the Rams can’t get their once potent offense moving.

Thankfully for the Rams, they’ve had a reasonably easy schedule of late, as they’ve been able to beat the Bears and Bengals, but lost to a bad Steelers team. There is still plenty of talent on both sides of the ball, but they’ll need to get their offense turned around, which hinges on what is currently a weak offensive line.

The Ravens have won six in a row, including a victory over the Patriots who were undefeated at the time and the Seahawks in Seattle. In their last four games, they’ve scored 41, 49, 37, and 30 points. They are easily the hottest team in the league.

Both of these teams have a strong defense, so fantasy points might not be flowing as usual, but Lamar Jackson is unstoppable right now. He’s locked into your lineups, but who else from this game is worth firing up? Let’s see what the analytics are saying about potential performances. Looking at ESPN fantasy projections, Todd Gurley is the only player besides Jackson who is projected to top 14 fantasy points. With two tough pass defenses and what looks like a full complement of receivers on both sides, it is tough to project one receiver breaking out based on usage. Mark Andrews and Cooper Kupp are the leaders for each team, and they have similar projections at 13 fantasy points. Picking the right receiver in this matchup will be tough, but there is enough talent and likely enough passing, to give these receivers a shot this week.
