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 was back on the practice field on Monday, as expected. He missed a couple of days with a groin injury, but it shouldn't be an issue going forward, barring a setback. We didn't move Jackson in the QB rankings.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson missed the past 2 days of practice while dealing with a groin injury, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. HC John Harbaugh would call it only a "soft-tissue" injury, and the team reportedly expects Jackson to return to the field Monday. So this doesn't look like a reason to alter your draft-day outlook for Jackson. It will certainly be a situation worth monitoring, though.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh sees more deep passes as the next evolution in QB Lamar Jackson's game. "Those corners are going to be one-on-one and those safeties are going to be one-on-one against receivers, especially on some downfield throws, and we got to make them pay for it. We absolutely have to make them pay," Harbaugh said. "The ability to make them pay for tilting their defense toward stopping our run game with a really, really efficient passing game. I do believe that's the next step of this offense. I really do believe Lamar is going to take the next step." Jackson was already efficient on deep balls last year, posting the league's 6th highest passer rating on throws 20+ yards downfield, according to Pro Football Focus. But he ranked just 19th with 55 pass attempts of 20+ yards. It sounds like Harbaugh wants that number to rise in 2020. Baltimore certainly has the right guys at WR to make that happen. Marquise Brown, Miles Boykin and Devin Duvernay all boast plus speed.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson, RB Mark Ingram and TE Mark Andrews are inactive for today’s meaningless game against the Steelers. Don’t expect WR Marquise Brown to play much, if at all. QB Robert Griffin draws the start, but QB Trace McSorley is also expected to play. Gus Edwards and Justice Hill will handle backfield duties. Avoid the WRs and TEs.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson won't play in Sunday's season finale against the Steelers, HC John Harbaugh said. Baltimore locked up the AFC's #1 seed with yesterday's win over the Browns, so the MVP will get the week off. QB Robert Griffin will draw the start for the Ravens, but Harbaugh said that rookie QB Trace McSorley could also hit the field. It's a situation to avoid in Week 17 fantasy lineups. G Marshal Yanda, RB Mark Ingram, S Earl Thomas and DT Brandon Williams will also be held out of Sunday's game.
