FF Today's Take:Mallett will get the call over Jimmy Clausen and while Pittsburgh has given up the fourth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks, Mallett is difficult to trust given the lack of weapons and his newness with the offense. The Ravens project to be behind most of the day, so garbage time stats are a real possibility.
Jimmy Clausen expected to start-- Sun Dec 13 8:45 am --
FF Today's Take:As if the Ravens haven't dealt with enough injuries this season, it appears they will be turning to their No.3 quarterback here in Week 14. Clausen started against the Seahawks back in Week 3 as a member of the Bears and was held to 63 passing yards. Even on the road, the Seahawks are an elite D/ST play.
Schaub misses practice again Friday-- Fri Dec 11 8:05 pm --
Clausen could start for Ravens this week
If Matt Schaub can't play Sunday, Jimmy Clausen would become the sixth quarterback in NFL history since 1950 to start for two different teams against the same team in one season, according to STATS. Another missed day of practice for Baltimore quarterback Matt Schaub means another step closer to some quirky NFL history potentially being made when the Ravens play the Seahawks on Sunday. Schaub is listed as Baltimoreís starting quarterback, having replaced the injured Joe Flacco. But Schaub missed practice again Friday due to a chest injury suffered Sunday against Miami. And if Schaub canít play Sunday against Seattle, then Jimmy Clausen would get the start. The same Jimmy Clausen who started for the Chicago Bears against the Seahawks on Sept. 27 in Seattle, serving then as a replacement for the injured Jay Cutler.(Seattle Times)
FF Today's Take:Most importantly, Clausen under center would have a negative impact on the appeal of starting Kamar Aiken this week. Javorius Allen's stock takes a hit too, as he and Schaub appeared to have developed some chemistry in the passing game last week.
