Rest Of Way Outlook

Week 13
Jackson had a performance typical to what we had seen of late. He completed 23/37 for 253 yards with a TD and an INT. This was his highest passing yardage in almost a month and it took OT against Minnesota to get there. Jackson also gained 55 yards on 8 carries as well. He has failed to gain 50 yards on the ground only twice this season. It has been an interesting season for Jackson who is throwing more than ever but outside of 3 games hasn’t been able to convert that volume to production. He has eclipsed 300 yards passing just twice and only has 2 games with more than 1 passing TDs. Going forward, the rushing floor keeps Lamar viable week to week but the added pass attempts haven't brought the production many expected. Hopefully he can thrive down the stretch with a healthy batch of pass catchers.
Week 12
Jackson completed 20 of 32 passes for 165 yards, 1 TD and 4 INTs in an ugly divisional win at home against the Browns. Jackson saved his fantasy day with a team-high 68 rushing yards on 17 carries.
Jackson was not on the same page with his Wpass catchers, including Mark Andrews, who was the intended target on all 4 of Jackson’s career-high 4 INTs.
The Ravens were fortunate to escape with a win as Jackson struggled, perhaps a result of missing Week 11’s game with an illness.
Jackson and the Ravens will look to bounce back game on the road against the Steelers, who may be without top pass rusher TJ Watt, who was placed on the Covid-19 list.
The Steelers defense has gotten destroyed in consecutive games vs. the Chargers and Bengals.
Week 10
Jackson really struggled against a blitz-happy Miami defense. Completing just 26 of 43 passes, he notched 238 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT. His lone TD came late in the 4th to Mark Andrews when the Dolphin DB curiously left his man, leaving Andrews open. Earlier in the game, Jackson looked to throw a nice deep ball to Sammy Watkins, but the WR failed to track it in the end zone. And it was all downhill from there. The good news is Jackson remained busy on the ground with another 9 attempts. And Rashod Bateman continues to look like the real deal. A bounce back is likely in order this week at Chicago.
Week 9
Jackson delivered the top QB score of Week 9 even while enduring an up-and-down passing day vs. Minnesota.

He completed a solid 65.9% of his throws for a lackluster 6.5 yards per attempt while missing out on a few big strikes. He just missed connecting with Mark Andrews in the end zone for what would have been a 23-yard TD to finish the 1st drive. Jackson later threw too short for Rashod Bateman on a pair of deep balls -- 1 of which drew a defensive PI call to set Baltimore up at the 5-yard line.

Jackson did connect for short-range TDs to Devonta Freeman, Devin Duvernay and Patrick Ricard. He also added 120 yards on the ground. His 12 designed rushes against Minnesota were his 2nd most of the season, trailing only Week 2 vs. Kansas City (15). Jackson’s 9 scrambles marked a new season high.

His remaining schedule ranks 7th friendliest to QB scoring by our adjusted fantasy points allowed. The most worrisome spot might be a Week 17 (fantasy championship week in most leagues) home date with the Rams. But wouldn’t alter QB plans over that.
Week 7
Jackson endured a tough passing day against the Bengals in Week 7, completing an ugly 48.4% of his 31 throws for 257 yards and a TD.

Marquise Brown’s acrobatic, toe-dragging 39-yard scoring grab early in the 3rd quarter saved Jackson from an otherwise truly awful passing line. The QB, of course, also helped himself with 88 rushing yards on a team-high 12 carries. Jackson also lost the game’s final 2 drives to backup Tyler Huntley, after Cincinnati built its lead to 41-17 midway through the 4th quarter.

It’s ultimately tough to worry too much about a bad passing day that still turned into Jackson’s 3rd-best fantasy line of the year, and the 6th best at the position for Week 7.
Week 6
With the Ravens facing a Chargers defense that’s been terrible against the run and also in covering TEs, the team had a perfect game plan to attack those weaknesses. Unfortunately, other than throwing to Mark Andrews, Jackson was not a necessary component of the offense in a blowout win. The Chargers are very good at keeping WRs in front of them, so the passes were mostly short, leading to just 167 yards, though he did connect with Andrews for a TD. Despite his efficient performance, he threw an ugly INT on a play he didn’t see the LB all alone right in front of him, showing there are still holes in his game.

Coming into this game, Jackson had increased his passing yardage in each game since Week 1, but he didn’t throw more than 1 TD in a game until last week. He’s improved his passing by showing much more consistency than earlier in his career when throwing toward the sidelines, so if that continues, the TD passes could continue to increase. In addition, he’s on pace to exceed 1,000 yards on the ground, so aside from being a clear QB1, he has the ability to be the overall QB1 in any given week.
Week 5
After a slow start, including a lost fumble in the 1st half, Jackson put on an absolute firework show from halftime through the final whistle. If he wasn’t before, he has put himself near the top of the MVP conversation again based on his incredible play this year. The guy threw for over 300 yards and 4 TDs in the 2nd half and OT alone. The Ravens were down by 19 late in the 3rd quarter and then the Jackson, Brown, and Andrews’ show began. Jackson was accurate throughout the night, completing 12 passes in a row at one point. He finished the night going 37/43 for 442 yards (Ravens franchise record) and 4 TDs. Jackson added 62 yards rushing on 14 carries.
Jackson will have a tougher matchup this week against a solid Chargers defense. However, the Chargers defense has given up 7 passing TDs over their last three games. This shouldn’t scare you off Jackson though. With his rushing ability combined with throwing for over 750 yards and 5 passing TDs over the last two weeks, he remains an elite option. We have Jackson ranked at QB3 this week against Los Angeles. The next three games on the Ravens schedule include LAC, CIN, and their bye week.
Week 4
Despite leading for the majority of the game, Jackson produced the most passing yards and most attempts of this season. He completed 22 of 37 for 316 yards and a TD. Last year Jackson eclipsed 30 attempts just twice and never threw for 300+ yards.

Jackson added 7 rushes for just 28 yards. This was his lowest yardage total on the ground this season. He's ran it 7 times in each of the last 2 games after rushing 10+ times in Weeks 1 and 2.

Going forward, Jackson has the potential to have his best passing season as a pro. He has a strong group of pass catchers that will improve when Rashod Bateman returns combined with the weakest RB group. If he continues to throw 30+ times, he can produce his most volume as a passer. Now, if that production comes at the detriment of his rush yards it could be a frustrating one from a fantasy perspective.
Week 3
Jackson was facing a terrible Lions defense that was unable to cover players in the middle of the field, allowing both Mark Andrews and Marquise Brown to have plenty of open space to roam. However, Brown dropped 2 long passes, 1 of which would’ve been a TD, and he couldn’t hang onto a short TD pass that was slightly tipped by a defender. He also had a chance to connect on a TD to Sammy Watkins, but the WR failed to extend for the ball. Those miscues kept Jackson from throwing for well over 300 yards and up to 4 TD passes.

Although he’s thrown just a single TD pass in each game, his yardage has increased each week. Jackson could get Rashod Bateman back from the IR soon, potentially giving him another weapon in the passing attack. Ultimately, if he can ramp up his fantasy scoring in the passing game, that’s what can move Jackson from a great fantasy option into an elite one. He’s averaging 83 yards per game on the ground with a pair of rushing scores, and he’s always a high-floor option regardless of opponent.
Week 2
Another MVP-level performance for Lamar Jackson. He had a rough start to the game Sunday night against the Chiefs, throwing 2 INTs in the first half (1 for a Chiefs TD).

With Baltimore down 35-24 late in the game, though, Jackson turned into superman and put the Ravens on his back. He made incredible plays with his arm and his legs leading the comeback. Jackson was able to make throws on one leg, from difficult angles, and while suspended in the air. He looked like the player we all remember from his MVP season in the 2nd half.

Jackson finished the night with 239 passing yards, 1 passing TD and 2 INTs. He added 107 rushing yards and 2 rushing scores in the 4th quarter.

Baltimore gets another juicy matchup this week against a Lions defense that was just shredded by the Packers for 4 passing TDs. We have him ranked at QB3 against Detroit this week. The receiving corps will get Rashod Bateman back in a few weeks, further bolstering the options for Jackson through the air. We have him ranked at QB5 the rest of the way.
Week 1
Week 1 was a good but not great week for Jackson. He threw for 235 yards, a number he only reached in a game 3 times last season. He also led the team in both carries and yards, amassing 86 yards on 12 carries. Unfortunately for Jackson, he only produced 1 TD in this contest and lost 2 fumbles. The Raiders pressure was in his face a ton, and the Ravens O-line will be an area to watch going forward. Still, Jackson's a no-doubt QB1 whenever he takes the field. Next up is an intriguing matchup against Kansas City.

Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Jackson was the league MVP in 2019 and finished as the clear-cut QB1.
  • In 2020, Jackson matched or nearly matched his 2019 output in completion rate (64.4%), YPA (7.3) and rushing scores (7).
  • Jackson’s passing TDs dropped from 36 to 26; his attempts sunk from 401 to 376. Hence the fall to QB10.
  • With little beyond Marquise Brown and Mark Andrews, the Ravens continued to orchestrate a run-heavy game plan. Jackson tallied 30+ attempts just twice all year (including the postseason).
  • Jackson’s wheels remained on display. He became the 1st QB to ever rush for 1,000 yards in 2 separate seasons.
  • Jackson easily led the league with 159 rush attempts — down from 176 in ’19, however.
  • Stud LT Ronnie Stanley missed most of the season with a broken ankle. Two surgeries were required, but he should be ready for Week 1.
  • OC Greg Roman returns for his 3rd season on staff with Jackson. As OC, his offenses have ranked 1st in rush attempts and yards over the past 2 seasons. No surprise with the league’s most athletic QB running the show.
  • In May, he teased the following: “There are definitely some things that we’re doing, right now to evolve, and there are definitely some things people are going to see from us that they haven’t seen before…schematically-wise, though, we’re always going to change a little bit, and I’d probably say more so this year than we did last year.”
  • New passing concepts are likely on the way after the Ravens used a Round 1 pick on WR Rashod Bateman and a Round 4 pick on Tylan Wallace. Bateman looks pro-ready with excellent separation skills and inside/out versatility.
  • The Ravens also added Sammy Watkins, 28, who’s capable of supplying a boost in spurts.
  • Baltimore dealt RT Orlando Brown over the offseason. But with additions like RT Alejandro Villaneuva, OG Kevin Zeitler and rookie OG Ben Cleveland, this unit looks like a strength.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

After a truly remarkable 2019, Jackson took a predictable step back last fall. The takeaway: Never bet on any QB repeating a 9% TD rate.

Still, there were encouraging signs here. Jackson remained an elite rusher, with usage only scaled back slightly. He also ended 2020 strong with finishes of QB6, QB1, QB5, QB12 and QB9 over the final 5 weeks.

Only in year 4, and now surrounded with his best supporting cast yet, look for Jackson’s passing numbers to rebound. He’s an enticing pick if he slips to late Round 5/Round 6 of 12-team drafts.
