How to watch, what to watch for Jaguars vs. Ravens in Week 15

The Jaguars and Ravens face off in Week 15 of the 2020 NFL season. We break down how to watch the game, odds for the matchup, key injuries, and notable fantasy football start/sit considerations.

The (8-5) Baltimore Ravens are struggling to stay in the playoff picture but will look to climb back into the picture this week as they take on the 1-12 Jacksonville Jaguars.

Jacksonville has been a total mess, no matter who is under center. After a week 1 win that gave the Duval faithful hope, it’s been all downhill. There’s no telling who is going to be under center from week to week, flipping between Gardner Minshew II and Mike Glennon. Minshew will probably start this one after Glennon was benched last week against the Tennessee Titans. Still, it doesn’t matter who plays, the Jags can’t stop an opposing offense, giving up over 400 total yards in each of the last three weeks.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson has seemed to take a step back after his MVP season in 2019. The team averages less than 200 yards passing each game, but he should be able to eclipse that mark against a Jags defense that allows over 275 yards per game through the air each week. The team’s running game has been a highlight, averaging 169 yards on the ground every game, led by Jackson and rookie RB JK Dobbins.

Fantasy football start/sit advice

Jaguars

James Robinson, RB $7,100

This guy is the running game. He has over 1,000 yards rushing on the season and the person next in line on the roster doesn’t even have 150. Robinson also has seven rushing touchdowns and can be an impact player in the passing game as well, if they can get him the ball.

Keelan Cole, WR, $4,000

In reality, you probably shouldn’t get anybody else on this roster. But if you have to pick somebody, might as well go with the wideout with the most touchdowns on the season. Plus Baltimore’s pass defense isn’t the greatest in the world, giving up nearly 250 yards per week.

Ravens

JK Dobbins, RB $5,900

No rusher is ever going to have one single amazing game on this offense because it has so many versatile rushers. Dobbins has four scores on the ground and gets a ton of targets through the air out of the backfield. He’s sure to see a lot of touches this week.

Ravens D/ST $3,800

The Ravens defense isn’t usually an amazing pickup, but against a Jags team that has looked horrible all season (and even more so recently), play them here.
