How to watch, what to watch for Chiefs vs. Ravens in Week 3

The Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens face off in Week 3 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.

Patrick Mahomes vs. Lamar Jackson. What more needs to be said about this Monday night collision of two AFC juggernauts looking to keep the momentum rolling after respective 2-0 starts.

The Baltimore Ravens cruised to a 33-17 victory over Houston last Sunday while a 58-yard Harrison Butker field lifted the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs over the Los Angeles Chargers in overtime.

As expected, both teams will bring with them a multitude of explosive offensive weapons into Monday’s showdown but Baltimore defense that sacked Deshaun Watson four times last week could give Mahomes fits.

Fantasy football start/sit advice

Chiefs

Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Running back, $6,500

After a breakout season-opener, the rookie out of LSU’s production on the ground dipped against the Chargers last Sunday, getting only 10 touches for 38 rushing yards. Still getting hauling in six catches in the overtime win, CEH will still be of major value to a KC offense looking to crack one of the top defenses in the league so far.

Demarcus Robinson, Wide receiver, $3,800

Robinson has hauled in six of 10 targets for 48 yards through two games this season. While modest, the questionable status of Sammy Watkins after his helmet-to-helmet hit could mean more targets for the Chiefs wideout.

Ravens

Marquise Brown, Wide receiver, $6,000

Through two games, Brown leads the Baltimore receiving core in receptions, yards and total targets but has yet to find the endzone during the young 2020 season. The second-year speedster from Oklahoma will continue to factor as one of Jackson’s go-to weapons against a Chiefs defense that is giving up 7.6 net yards per attempt.

Mark Andrews, Tight end, $6,000

Andrews has made the most of his targets through two games, averaging 14.5 ypc on six catches and finding the endzone twice. This makes him a valuable redzone option for the Ravens’ offense on Monday.
