21-Year-Old QuarterbackQB
Baltimore Ravens
2018 Fantasy Outlook
The Ravens traded up to draft Jackson, the 2016 Heisman winner, with the last pick of the first round. The plan is to develop him behind Joe Flacco this year, but the 33-year-old is coming off a horribly inefficient season and if he doesn't rebound quickly the team could turn to its new QB. At 6-2, 216, Jackson's size and speed allow him to create explosive plays with his arm and legs, but his accuracy needs work, as does his ability to throw on the run. He completed less than 60 percent of his passes each season at Louisville, but did improve year-over-year from 54.7 percent to 56.2 percent to 59.1 percent, without getting much help from his supporting cast. Jackson was a one-man show for the Cardinals, piling up 4,132 rushing yards, 50 rushing TDs and 69 passing TDs in 38 games, with 8.3 YPA and 6.3 YPC. Regardless of how things shake out this year, the Ravens likely will grab the salary cap savings next offseason and replace Flacco with the dynamic Jackson. Read Past Outlooks

No lock for start if Flacco sits
QBBaltimore Ravens
November 12, 2018
Jackson and Robert Griffin will both be candidates to start if Joe Flacco (hip) isn't available for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The Ravens aren't quite ready to evaluate Jackson at the expense of their prospects for making a playoff push, though it isn't clear Flacco (or Griffin) gives them a better chance to win. The hip injury is serious enough to threaten Flacco's availability coming out of a Week 10 bye, setting up an interesting week in Baltimore ahead of a crucial game against a fellow AFC wild-card contender. Whichever quarterback ends up starting will take aim at a slumping Bengals team that fired Teryl Austin from the defensive coordinator position Monday.
