Fantasy football analysis
OBJ hasn’t been an explosive player within the Ravens’ offense, but has at least been a consistent presence down the stretch. He’s hauled in 32 receptions for 519 yards and three touchdowns this year and two of his best performances have come within the last four games for Baltimore.
Those numbers have made him a fringe Flex option in fantasy football, as he’s averaging 8.3 FP per game in PPR leagues. Zay Flowers is still the go-to receiving option in the Ravens offense, even as he’s dealing with an injury this week as well.
