3.) Travis Etienne will struggle vs. Ravens

Jaguars’ running back Travis Etienne has scored 17 fantasy points in each of his last two games, which includes production in the passing game. Overall, he has been one of the best options at the running back spot because of his pass-catching abilities.

In his last three games, Etienne has had as low as 11 carries and high as 20 carries, but is catching at least four passes to add to his game. While he has been able to get up to 7 points alone in the passing game, the ground game for Etienne has been on a down for him in which if he did reach the endzone, he would have below 10 fantasy points.

The defense for the Baltimore Ravens will be a tough unit for Jacksonville this week. Before last week, the Ravens’ defense had not given up more than 195 passing yards in five consecutive games. The run defense has been up and down in the last month of football but they have shown that they can contain the run and make teams try to win through the air. The Ravens’ defense is more dependable in this game unless Etienne can get into the endzone, don’t expect much production out of him.
