FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Week 10 of Sunday Night Football will feature an AFC clash between the Baltimore Ravens as they travel to take on the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium.
With this matchup, legal sports betting sites have daily fantasy football contests where they allow fantasy GM’s to create 5-man lineups with an MVP slot that earns 1.5-times the points. With that said, this is just a suggested lineup and should be changed around to the users liking.

Starting with the MVP slot, Cam Newton takes over the reins here as he has had a nice past two games. In his last two outings, Newton has gone for 18.3 points and 24.5 points and has also rushed for a touchdown in each of his previous two games.
However, he is going up against a rock-solid Ravens defense that is coming off of a game where they allowed for just 227 passing yards and an interception.
In their two games prior though, they allowed the opposing quarterbacks to go for 186 yards and two touchdowns and 213 yards and two touchdowns. With that said, Newton could add a nice night to his lethal ground game.
Jakobi Meyers fills out the first flex slot. Meyers has also looked great in his last two games as both of them have gone for double-digit fantasy points.
He has seen over 10 targets in each of those games as well. Meyers is coming off of his best game of the season thus far in Week 9 where he went for 14 targets for 12 receptions and 169 receiving yards.
His matchup with the Ravens is considered a tough one as they rank in the top ten on daily fantasy football sites against opposing wide receiver, but they have been affected by COVID-19 which has forced a few of their defensive players out.
That being said, Meyers could take advantage of that and have another solid outing.
The second flex spot is taken by Marquise “Hollywood” Brown. Brown has struggled as of late but could turn things around here against the Patriots defense that ranks 13 in the NFL against opposing wide receivers.
Something to take note of here is that Patriots star defensive back, Stephone Gilmore, is listed as questionable heading into the game. If Gilmore is indeed out, it could open up the field even more for Brown.
Another thing to look at with Brown is that he gets the opportunities needed as he has the 12th most air yards in the league. Brown could be in line for a nice game here if everything comes together.
The third flex slot is filled out by J.K. Dobbins who could be in for a nice night here as Mark Ingram is listed as questionable.
There is no doubt that Dobbins has the ability to be explosive as just two weeks ago he went for 113 yards. If in fact, Ingram does not suit up though, he would surely get the opportunities to make big plays.
Also, in the last two games that Ingram hasn’t played, Dobbins has led the backfield in rushing attempts with 15 and 12. He could certainly lead them again and also take advantage of the Patriots defense that ranks 20 against opposing running backs.
The final roster slot could be considered a longshot but it is filled out by Rex Burkhead. The Patriots could be moving in another direction at running back as Burkhead led the team in rushing attempts in Week 9. He saw 12 rush attempts for 56 yards and a touchdown for 14.2 fantasy points.
Something else to look at here is that the Ravens have allowed for 47 yards and a touchdown and 118 yards in two of their last three games.
He has also been quietly eating into Damien Harris’s rushing attempts every game.
