Although Pierre-Paul had an uninspiring 2021 season, he is coming off shoulder surgery this past summer on an ailment he was battling all season. At 33, he may have a bit left in the tank for a Ravens team with high aspirations as the current favorite in the AFC North on the FanDuel Sportsbook. It’s unclear whether or not we will see him this Sunday against the Patriots, but regardless he should see playing time right out of the gate. He should provide a needed boost to a Baltimore defense that was just torched for 42 points by the Miami Dolphins in Week 2.
In 2021, Pierre-Paul made 31 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and four pass deflections in 12 games with the Buccaneers.
