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.
"I think it's the best I've ever seen him throw it thus far," Ravens OC Greg Roman said Friday about QB Lamar Jackson. Roman, of course, has been Baltimore's coordinator for the past 3 seasons, and has thus watched plenty of Jackson passes. He also noted the QB's increased strength, as we've passed along here previously. "He's really worked hard in the offseason, and it's showing," Roman added. "We're all very excited." Fantasy football players have already seen the vaulted ceiling that Jackson possesses. Consider him an elite QB option as you draft.
Ravens QB Lamar Jackson has packed on about 15 pounds this offseason and looks noticeably bigger in the upper body. "I just wanted to do it, see how it looks and see how it feels," Jackson said. "And I feel good." We'll see if Jackson decides to play the season at the 220 pounds he's currently at. It'd probably help his mobility while hopefully not sapping him of any speed.
QB Lamar Jackson shared that he’s hopeful he can reach a long-term deal with the Ravens by training camp. “I'm not going to say 'yeah' right now,” Jackson said regarding a potential agreement. “Hopefully. But it's God's timing.” Talks are ongoing — and remember that Jackson is negotiating a new contract without an agent. Ultimately, Jackson's contract situation isn't a reason to value him differently in 2022 drafts. He's a clear-cut top-5 fantasy passer.
Ravens QB Lamar Jackson reported to mandatory minicamp on Monday. This was always the expectation, but Jackson, 25, remains without a long-term extension. According to PFT’s Myles Simmons, Jackson “has not yet engaged the club in meaningful contract talks.” Note that the QB is representing himself in contract negotiations.
