Baltimore Ravens DFS rotation
Crows S Kyle Hamilton (knee) is questionable for Week 15 against the Jaguars. Hamilton suffered a Grade 1 MCL sprain in Week 14 but was on the practice field earlier this week. He was then promoted to a full participant on Friday, so he should be able to match this weekend. Hamilton has a pair of interceptions, a forced fumble and three sacks this year.
Jacksonville Jaguars DFS Spin
Trevor Lawrence (ankle) was removed from the injury report for Week 15 and will play against the Ravens. Lawrence's status was never in doubt after practicing in full on Wednesday. He was in training during the week. Lawrence played through a sprained ankle in Week 15 and scored three points but just as many picks against an elite Browns defense. In a similarly difficult matchup against the Ravens, Lawrence will sit on the QB1/2 line.

Ravens vs Jaguars Prediction:
Take Baltimore. The Jaguars defense has been exposed lately. After giving up 34 points to Jake Browning and the Bengals at home in Week 13, they gave up 31 points to Joe Flacco and the Browns last Sunday in Cleveland. What is Lamar Jackson going to do with them tonight?
Lawrence isn't looking good either, and it's not just because of his bad ankle. Losing Christian Kirk also hurts the Jaguars offense more than people realize. Calvin Ridley may get most of the headlines, but Kirk is a zone defense killer, opening things up for Ridley and Evan Engram. After playing a tough game last Sunday against the Rams, the Ravens defense needs to bounce back tonight.
