The Ravens plan to start QB Lamar Jackson for Sunday’s game at Atlanta, per Mike Garafolo of NFL.com. The news isn’t surprising, as Joe Flacco hasn’t gained medical clearance from his hip injury. Jackson’s run hot and cold as a passer but owns a whopping 190 rushing yards through 2 starts. He’ll carry top-15 potential into the road matchup.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (quad) is active for tonight's game against the Jets. This comes as no surprise. Use him as you were planning to in your fantasy football lineups.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (quad) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Jets. He put in a full practice on Wednesday, though, and has confirmed that he'll play tomorrow. Jackson remains an elite QB1.

"The theme of Ravens training camp has been [QB Lamar] Jackson exceeding expectations as a passer," ESPN's Jamison Hensley writes. This isn't the 1st time we've heard that sentiment over the past few weeks. Jackson has reportedly made big strides in accuracy and consistency even since spring workouts. He completed 29 of 43 attempts (67.4%) in 7-on-7 and team drills against the Jaguars this week. Rushing production will continue to fuel Jackson's fantasy value in 2019. But if he can be just average as a passer, it'll be a big boost to his weekly ceiling and floor.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh announced Wednesday that QB Lamar Jackson will start this weekend's game against the Bucs. QB Joe Flacco (hip) has been cleared and will be the backup. Flacco's presence still adds risk to Jackson's Week 15 fantasy profile, though. Baltimore might install a package of plays for Flacco (like they did for Jackson earlier this season). And it makes it easier for the Ravens to pull Jackson if he struggles. Consider the rookie more of a high-upside QB2 than a QB1 for Week 15.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson headed back to the locker room to get checked for a concussion in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game in Atlanta. We'll update his status when we learn more. QB Robert Griffin is in for Baltimore.

Update: Jackson has been cleared to return.
