    The Bengals were still asleep when it was time for the season to start and let the Browns dismantle them in Week 1. Now they look to right the ship at home against a Ravens team that demolished the Texans. Both QBs fantasy lines were disappointing and riddled with turnovers, but both represent top fantasy options and may be able to bounce back against each other.

    Main Storylines to Watch

    Is Joe Burrow’s calf going to ruin his season? Burrow (calf) and the Bengals claimed the sluggish start was more to do with the weather and gameplan than it did the lingering injury, but Burrow still shows up on the injury report. While it probably will not hold him out of any contests, it may impact his fantasy value throughout the year.

    Will Zay Flowers still demand volume with Mark Andrews back? While Flowers led the Ravens in receiving in Week 1, the offense did not look as good as expected and Lamar’s stat line was tame. Andrews is questionable for the game but has been participating in practice. Watch for the target breakdown to see whether Flowers will continue to produce with Jackson’s favorite target back in action.
