Lamar Jackson Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (illness) is INACTIVE for today’s game vs. the Bears. QB Tyler Huntley gets his 1st career start. Huntley went undrafted out of Utah last year and has attempted just 16 NFL passes. He completed a solid 67.2% of his college passes with 46 TDs to 20 INTs. Huntley also ran for 1,146 yards and 16 scores at Utah and is a 95th percentile athlete for his position. There’s rushing upside here, but Huntley is a clear downgrade for Baltimore’s passing game.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson is dealing with a "significant sickness," NFL Network's Stacey Dales reports. "Truly a 50-50 chance he plays," Dales adds. Jackson just arrived to the stadium and is set to be evaluated by team doctors to determine whether he's able to play vs. the Bears today. We'll get word at 11:30 am ET. QB Tyler Huntley will start if Jackson can't.

A league source tells ESPN's Adam Schefter that Ravens QB Lamar Jackson is "50/50" for Sunday's game vs. the Bears. Jackson has been dealing with a non-COVID illness all week, missing practice on Wednesday and Thursday. We'll continue to look for updates on Jackson's status and will get Baltimore's inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson has been added to the injury report as questionable with an illness. He missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday with an illness but was a full-go on Friday and left off the original injury report. We'll look for further updates on Jackson and will get his game status around 11:30 am ET on Sunday.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (back) is active for today’s game vs. the Broncos. He dealt with back soreness early in the week but put in a full practice on Friday. We’re not expecting Jackson to be limited today.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (back) is expected to play vs. Denver today. Jackson sat out the first 2 practices of the week with a sore back but put in a full practice on Friday. We've heard nothing to suggest that he'll be limited today.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (back) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Broncos. He sat out the first 2 practices of the week but was a full-go on Friday. WR Marquise Brown said Jackson looked “real good.” He’s fully expected to start vs. Denver, but check back Sunday for confirmation.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport expects Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (back) to play vs. the Broncos on Sunday. Jackson has missed the first 2 practices of the week, but it sounds like that's been mostly precautionary. "Nothing much to worry about," Rapoport said. "Nothing alarming. I would expect Lamar Jackson back at practice [Friday] ... no one I've talked to is alarmed at all." We'll see what Jackson does in practice today and how he's listed on the final injury report.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (back) missed practice again on Thursday. The team is calling it "back soreness," according to The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec, who does expect Jackson to play vs. Denver this weekend. But this is certainly a situation to monitor over the next few days. We'll see if Jackson practices tomorrow.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson did not practice on Wednesday and is on the injury report with a back. We don't have any other details at this point and didn't notice Jackson get hurt in last week's win over the Lions. We're assuming he'll be ready for Sunday's game vs. the Broncos, but check back for updates.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (illness) is active for today’s game vs. the Lions. He put in a full practice on Friday, so there wasn’t much concern here. Jackson is safe to get into Week 3 fantasy lineups.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (illness) is expected to play vs. the Lions today. Jackson is listed as questionable with a non-COVID illness but put in a full practice on Friday. He's safe to use in fantasy lineups unless we hear otherwise.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Lions with a non-COVID illness. He put in a full practice on Friday and should be fine for Sunday. Just check back that morning to make sure he's active.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson was activated from the COVID list on Friday. He tested positive for the virus in late July and had to spend 10 days on the COVID list as an unvaccinated player. Jackson still has over a month to get ready for the season opener. But the fact that he's unvaccinated does add some risk to his 2021 fantasy profile.

Let's just let ESPN's Adam Schefter explain why the Ravens will practice Wednesday without their starting QB: "Lamar Jackson is not practicing today in a COVID-related case the league still is trying to process, per Jamison Hensley and me. Jackson, who tested positive on Thanksgiving, had another test that NFL officials flagged. NFL now going through science, and Ravens awaiting answers." We'll see where this situation goes. It's impossible to tell at the moment whether this is something that will only cost Jackson a day or 2 -- or an issue we should be concerned about. Jackson, of course, had the positive test last November that cost him a game. But we hadn't heard of any related issues since. For now, we're not adjusting Jackson's fantasy outlook.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson is expected to be activated from the COVID list and start Tuesday's game against the Cowboys, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Jackson carries elevated risk in Week 13 fantasy lineups coming off the illness -- but the matchup is sweet vs. Dallas' 22nd-ranked QB defense.

The forecast for today's Ravens-Bills game calls for 15-20 mph winds with gusts of 30+. QBs Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen both do a lot of their fantasy damage on the ground, so neither guy is significantly hurt by the weather. We would slightly downgrade WRs John Brown and Marquise Brown with deep passes likely to be impacted.
