Lamar Jackson Soars Against Philly

General

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson threw for 186 yards and a touchdown off 16-for-27 passing during the win over Philadelphia on Sunday. He also ran for 108 yards and an additional score off of nine attempts. The reigning MVP had his best performance on the ground against the Eagles, bouncing back from a hideous three-yard rushing performance against the Bengals in Week 5. With the team entering its bye week, Jackson has a chance to examine things before squaring off against the Steelers at the beginning of November.

Lamar Jackson Draws Excellent Matchup In Week 6

General

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson will face off against the Philadelphia Eagles on the road in Week 6. Jackson is off to a slow start, by his own lofty standards, having rushed for just 238 yards and one touchdown through five games. He has a chance to post a big game against a Philly defense that is decent against the run and weak against the pass, ranking just 29th in pass-defense DVOA. That could open things up for Jackson to do plenty of damage through the air this weekend. Fantasy gamers who are rostering Jackson will want to continue to start the star quarterback as a top-three option for Week 6.

Lamar Jackson Goes Cold On The Ground In Week 5

General

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson threw for 180 yards and two touchdowns during the win over the Bengals in Week 5. He also threw an interception and ran for just three yards on two attempts. The reigning MVP had another disappointing outing despite the relatively favorable matchup against Cincinnati. However, just as was the case in 2019, the 23-year-old may pick things up over the team's next 11 contests. While he may not be as effective rushing the ball, primarily with opposing defenses focusing on stopping the run, he should still be able to make enough noise through the air during the remainder of the 2020 campaign to keep him ranked higher than others at the position.

Lamar Jackson, Marquise Brown, Mark Andrews Active

Injuries

The Baltimore Ravens will have three players who were questionable for their Week 5 game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Quarterback Lamar Jackson (knee/illness), wide receiver Marquise Brown (knee), and tight end Mark Andrews (thigh) will all be on the field. Jackson and Andrews are top plays at their position in season-long leagues, with Brown being an upside WR2 option as the only consistent wide receiver option on this team.

Lamar Jackson 100 Percent Despite Being Questionable

Injuries

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson (knee) is "100 percent" and will play on Sunday against the Bengals despite being listed as questionable on the final injury report, according to head coach John Harbaugh. Jackson missed practice on Wednesday with a minor knee injury and sat out on Thursday with an illness, but he wasn't showing any limitations in practice on Friday and wasn't wearing a knee brace. The reigning MVP carved up the Bengals in two meetings last year and should do the same this weekend. Cincy's defense has really struggled to stop the run, which is something Jackson really excels at if there's nothing going through the air. Continue to start Jackson with confidence as an elite QB1.

Lamar Jackson Expected To Play In Week 5

Injuries

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson (knee) missed practice on Wednesday due to a minor knee injury and sat out on Thursday due to a stomach ache, according to a league source. Neither issue is expected to be serious enough to sideline him for the Week 5 matchup against the Bengals, however. Jackson also returned to practice on Friday, further easing his fantasy managers' minds heading into Sunday's game. The reigning NFL MVP has underwhelmed through the air so far, but his elite rushing ability has saved him from a fantasy perspective. Cincinnati has failed to get much pressure on opposing QBs this year, which is good news for Jackson. He destroyed the Bengals in his two matchups with them last year and he remains a high-end QB1 this weekend.

Lamar Jackson Misses Back-To-Back Practices

Injuries

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson (knee) has missed back-to-back regular season practices on Wednesday and Thursday of this week for the first time in his three-year career. It was reported on Wednesday that Jackson's knee injury wasn't serious, and he played in 47 of 55 offensive snaps in the Week 4 win over Washington, coming out late in the 31-17 blowout victory. Fantasy managers will want to see the reigning NFL MVP get in at least a limited practice on Friday. You shouldn't be all that concerned just yet unless he misses a third straight practice on Friday, which would put Robert Griffin III on track to start in Week 5 against the Bengals. Jackson has yet to have a big game for his fantasy managers in 2020, but he remains a must-start QB each and every week.

Lamar Jackson Misses Practice With Knee Injury

Injuries

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson (knee) didn't practice on Wednesday due to a knee injury that isn't considered serious, according to a source. Jackson was held out for "precautionary reasons," with backup Robert Griffin III seeing the first-team repetitions. Jackson's fantasy managers have been waiting for a big performance from the reigning NFL MVP this year, but it just hasn't happened yet. Baltimore will need to get their deep passing game going for that to happen, as they currently rank 31st in the NFL in passing. The Bengals Defense is definitely exploitable, so don't be surprised if Jackson and the Ravens explode in Week 5. But the 23-year-old's knee is something worth watching, as he's an elite QB1 in part because of his ability to scramble and pick up big chunk gains with his legs.

Lamar Jackson Not Happy With Passing Offense

General

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has voiced his frustration with the team's passing offense despite a 3-1 start to the season. "I feel like there are a lot of yards and touchdowns we've been leaving on the field when we don't connect. That's probably why our passing isn't where it's supposed to be. But I feel it's early in the season," Jackson said. Baltimore ranks 31st in the league in passing (180.8 yards a game) through four weeks, and no reigning MVP QB has finished lower than 27th in passing. Jackson has completed just five of 16 passes (31.3 percent) of throws that have traveled at least 20 yards, which ranks 26th in the NFL. His rushing has also declined slightly through the quarter mark, but he remains a top-five fantasy signal-caller and is a must-start in Week 5 against the Bengals.

Lamar Jackson Gets Back On Track Against Washington

General

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson finished with 193 yards and two touchdowns (one interception) on 14-for-21 passing during the win over Washington on Sunday. He also added seven carries for 53 yards and another score. The reigning MVP returned to form after a few subpar outings in his previous two outings. Although some have been concerned with Jackson's regression during the 2020 campaign, fantasy managers shouldn't hit the panic button yet as the Ravens will take on the Bengals in Week 5. Keep him starting.

Lamar Jackson Hopes To Rebound From Poor Showing

General

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson will be looking to get back on track in Week 4 against Washington. After getting off to a hot start to the 2020 campaign, the 23-year-old has thrown for only two touchdowns over his previous two contests. Although the Football Team has done an acceptable job defending the pass, the club hasn't fared well against mobile signal-callers, as evident by Kyler Murray's 67-yard, two-touchdown rushing performance in Week 2. Jackson should always be classified as a must-start fantasy option; however, his ceiling may be higher than usual in Week 4.

Lamar Jackson Struggles Against Chiefs

General

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson didn't look like the defending NFL MVP in Monday's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Jackson was held to just 97 passing yards, going 15-for-28 and throwing one touchdown. Jackson did lead the team in rushing yards with 83 of them on nine carries, salvaging his day for fantasy managers, though he failed to reach the high expectations that were placed on him. It was a bad night all around for the Ravens, but Jackson is still a top-three fantasy quarterback going forward. It'd be a shock to see him throw for under 100 yards again.

Lamar Jackson With Tough Task Ahead In Week 3

General

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has his most formidable challenge of the 2020 season thus far against the Chiefs on Monday night. The third-year signal-caller has played relatively well against Kansas City throughout his career (two games), throwing for 414 yards and two touchdowns to go along with 22 carries for 113 yards and an additional score. While his previous performances against the squad doesn't guarantee a similar output, it is reasonable to assume that fantasy managers may see the same type of production once again. In case there was any doubt, keep him starting in all formats.

Lamar Jackson Cools Off In Week 2

General

Baltimore Ravens running back Lamar Jackson threw for 204 yards and a touchdown during the win over the Texans on Sunday. He also added 16 carries for 54 yards. The reigning MVP didn't get much going on the afternoon, but he didn't need to as the team relied heavily on the three-headed monster rushing attack of Mark Ingram II, Gus Edwards, and rookie J.K. Dobbins, who combined for 21 attempts. Although he didn't play as well as he did during his splendid Week 1 performance, it was still a welcome fantasy performance overall. Jackson will have his most formidable task of the season ahead in Week 3 when the Ravens meet the Chiefs on Monday Night Football.

Lamar Jackson Looks For Repeat Performance In Week 2

General

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson was impressive during the season-opener against the Browns and will look to keep that momentum going into Week 2 against Houston. The Texans Defense didn't impress against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs during the Thursday night matchup, allowing the former MVP to compile three touchdown tosses. Heading into Sunday, Jackson has all the tools needed to make some noise for fantasy owners. The third-year signal-caller threw for 222 yards and four touchdowns on nearly 71 percent passing against the Texans in Week 11 of 2019. He also added 10 carries for 79 yards. While Jackson's previous success against Houston doesn't guarantee that another stellar outing is on tap, his ceiling is higher than usual in this one.

Lamar Jackson Picks Up From Last Season On Sunday

General

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson was dominant during the massive win over the Browns in Week 1. The 23-year-old got it done in all areas, throwing 275 yards and three touchdowns on an efficient 20-for-25 passing while adding seven carries for 45 yards. Jackson demonstrated why he was one of the first quarterbacks off the board in fantasy drafts over the previous few months. His outlook looks promising against the Texans in Week 2, with the reigning MVP throwing for four touchdowns during his lone meeting against Houston in his young career.

Lamar Jackson Draws Favorable Matchup On Sunday

General

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has a favorable matchup heading into Week 1 against Cleveland. While the Browns held its own against opposing quarterbacks in some areas last season, it gave up a second-worst 382 yards and three touchdowns to that position in 2019. The reigning MVP is undoubtedly a capable passer; however, the recipe is there for Jackson to make a dent on the fantasy end using his legs on Sunday, especially after Cleveland had some critical departures on the defensive side of the ball during the offseason.

Lamar Jackson Claims To Be Fully Healthy

General

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson claims he is now fully healthy after missing a couple of practices earlier in training camp because of a groin injury. The 23-year-old is coming off an MVP season and figures to be the leading force as his team looks to make a deep playoff run in 2020. The QB just took in some extra rest by missing a couple of practices. With any injury concerns squashed by Jackson himself, that bodes well for fantasy managers looking to draft him as their QB1. The Ravens QB should be considered a top-two fantasy QB in drafts alongside Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes.

Lamar Jackson Back At Practice Monday

Injuries

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson (groin) returned to practice on Monday after sitting out of training camp as a precaution the previous two days due to a groin strain. "He was back. He looked good. He had a good practice. We're moving forward, like I've said," head coach John Harbaugh said. It was never considered a serious injury for Jackson, so fantasy owners need not be worried. The reigning MVP makes a case to be the No. 1 fantasy QB selected in drafts over Patrick Mahomes. At the very least, he'll be the second signal-caller off the board in the early rounds of your drafts.

Lamar Jackson Misses Practice With Injury

Injuries

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has missed two straight practices with what head coach John Harbaugh is calling a "soft-tissue injury." When asked to elaborate, Harbaugh would not provide any further information, stating, "I'm not getting into all that. We're not getting into injuries." It doesn't appear to be anything major at this point of training camp but it is worth following Jackson's participation (or lack thereof) for the rest of the week. Jackson is being drafted as a top-two fantasy quarterback in drafts this season.
