Lamar Jackson
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

Sees heavy playing time in debut

September 10, 2018
Jackson completed one of four passes for 24 yards Sunday against the Bills and added seven carries for 39 yards.
ANALYSIS
The Ravens turned to Jackson in the third quarter after getting out to a 40-0 lead, but he also had five plays in the first half in which he was on the field with Joe Flacco, per Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic. "We wanted to establish him as a threat quickly, not a possible threat. We wanted him to go out there and make plays and generate plays for us," coach John Harbaugh said after the game. Jackson's main duty after taking over in the third quarter was to help run out the clock in a blowout, but his snaps in the first half suggest that he will be involved in the offense in some capacity moving forward. The Ravens have a quick turnaround before returning to action Thursday against the Bengals. Look for Jackson to get on the field in two-quarterback sets on occasion Week 2.
