Fantasy Advice

I'm getting very bullish on Lamar Jackson and keep going back and forth between bottom of Tier 1 and top of Tier 2. Tier 1 for upside, Tier 2 for risk of injury. New OC Todd Monken is a big plus. New receiving options are a big plus over last year's Mark Andrews, only 6 games from Rashod Bateman, and next to nothing otherwise. May not hit 1,000 rushing yards again but 700 and at least half a dozen rushing TD is an excellent boost to his fantasy output.

  • Ravens To Prioritize Offensive Line Additions

    Headshot for Lamar Jackson

    The Ravens’ defense was a major factor in the team’s run to the AFC title game in 2023. The unit has already seen a number of departures on the sidelines, and several key players are set to reach free agency. Baltimore is prepared to pay considerable attention to the other side of the ball, however. […]

  • Ravens Need To Address Their Offensive Line

    Headshot for Lamar Jackson

    The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec believes that offensive line is the Baltimore Ravens' biggest need heading into the new league year and the 2024 NFL draft. Both starting guards Kevin Zeitler and John Simpson will be unrestricted free agents, and their two starting tackles, Ronnie Stanley and Morgan Moses, are 29 and 32, respectively, and are coming off seasons that were impacted by injuries. Stanley has been dealing with injuries since 2020. Baltimore does have a few potential internal replacements on the offensive line, but they'll have some decisions to make this offseason on which players to bring back. Regardless, they'll almost certainly have to add at least one, if not two, starting-caliber offensive linemen to help protect MVP Lamar Jackson.

  • Lamar Jackson Wins Second MVP Award

    Headshot for Lamar Jackson

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson was named the NFL's Most Valuable Player for the second time in his career. Although Jackson still has been unable to find much success in the postseason, there's no doubt that he deserved his second MVP after what was a phenomenal 2023 season as a whole. The 27-year-old threw for a career-high 3,678 yards while throwing 24 touchdowns and only seven interceptions in 16 regular season games. He added 148 rushing attempts for an additional 821 rushing yards and five more touchdowns on the ground. After getting injured late in each of the last two seasons, Jackson stayed healthy all year and proved he's one of the league's elite dual threats under center.

  • Lamar Jackson Ends The Season In Disappointing Fashion

    Headshot for Lamar Jackson

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson entered the AFC Championship game on a hot streak after lighting up the Houston Texans for four total scores and 252 total yards. Unfortunately, the Kansas City Chiefs defense kept Jackson in check all game long and forced him into two key turnovers at big points in the game. Jackson finished the game with 272 yards through the air while completing 20 out of his 37 attempts for one touchdown and one interception. He also registered 54 yards on eight carries with one fumble from a strip sack. He was unable to get much of a rhythm against one of the best passing defenses in the league and the game plan went far away from the run. He remains the likely winner for the MVP this year and Jackson cashed in another big-time season. After his first-ever AFC Championship experience, he'll try to correct his postseason mistakes next year.

    Headshot for Lamar Jackson

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson gets to experience his first-ever AFC Championship game while the city of Baltimore gets to watch their team at home for the first time in the Ravens era for this big game. The home-field advantage is something not to be downplayed, especially because Jackson has noticeably better stats while playing at home despite suffering one more loss at home compared to on the road. His quarterback rating at home is 112.4 with 14 touchdowns through the air, three on the ground, four interceptions, and a 69.41 completion percentage on 219 attempts. He's also racked up 2039 passing yards and 435 rushing yards. While the Chiefs defense presents just as tough of a matchup as the Texans, Jackson should remain a high-level option in DFS lineups.

  • Lamar Jackson Scores Four Touchdowns In Divisional Round Win

    Headshot for Lamar Jackson

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson exhibited his MVP potential in the 2023 Divisional Round, accumulating 252 yards and four touchdowns, including 100 rushing yards in the team's 34-10 victory over the Texans. Despite initial skepticism about his postseason performance, the former MVP emphatically led the Ravens' offense down the field. Jackson's scoring on the first two drives of the second half led to a strategic shift to an ultra-run-heavy approach, tempering his passing statistics for the day. As the AFC's top seed, the impending title game will be at M&T Bank Stadium against either the Bills or Chiefs presents a challenge, with both teams ranking in the bottom 10 in points allowed to quarterbacks. Nevertheless, Jackson is anticipated to deliver robust numbers as the linchpin of the entire offense.

  • Lamar Jackson Looks To Shake Off Playoff Woes

    Headshot for Lamar Jackson

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson turned in another incredible season as he led the team to the top seed in the AFC and a first-round bye. Now, he and the Ravens will take on the Houston Texans, a team full of young talent, to try and erase all of the playoff doubts throughout his career. Jackson is currently 1-3 in playoff games and has never won at home. When these two teams met in the first week of the season, Jackson struggled a bit despite the lopsided score, as he registered 169 yards on 17-for-22 passing with no scores and an interception. He did lead the backfield with 38 yards on six carries, though. His legs will create more upside for Jackson in DFS lineups, but it remains to be seen how he and the revamped offense will look after two weeks off.

  • Tyler Huntley To Start In Week 18, Lamar Jackson To Be Rested

    Headshot for Lamar Jackson

    The Baltimore Ravens will rest quarterback Lamar Jackson, the MVP front-runner, for the Week 18 regular season finale this Saturday against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Ravens are already locked into the top overall seed in the AFC and will have a first-round bye in the playoffs. The next time they'll be a full-go will be in the Divisional Round on Jan. 20/21. Tyler Huntley will make his first start of the season in this weekend's game against a Steelers team that is still fighting for a wild-card spot. Jackson may not be the only offensive starter the Ravens choose to rest in this one, so Huntley may be working with limited weapons in a tough matchup against the Steelers. The 25-year-old will be a low-end QB2 option for fantasy managers in superflex leagues that are still playing for a title.

  • Ravens Unsure If Lamar Jackson Will Play In Week 18

    Headshot for Lamar Jackson

    The Baltimore Ravens have already clinched the No. 1 seed in the AFC and a first-round bye in the postseason, so they have nothing left to play for in Week 18 of the regular season versus the division-rival Pittsburgh Steelers. Head coach John Harbaugh said he has not decided if quarterback Lamar Jackson, the MVP favorite, and other key starters will play on Saturday against Pittsburgh. If Jackson and other starters are given Week 18 off, they will go three weeks between games. Jackson didn't play in the regular season finale in 2019 and the Ravens ended up losing to the Tennessee Titans in the divisional round of the playoffs two weeks later. The 26-year-old is currently the QB3 in overall fantasy points and has been excellent for his managers in four games since the team's Week 13 bye. If he is given the week off, Tyler Huntley would make the start against the Steelers.

  • Lamar Jackson Remains A Must-Start Against Dolphins

    Headshot for Lamar Jackson

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson checks in at QB4 after three straight QB1-level performances since their bye in Week 13. In that span, he has 739 yards, six touchdowns, and two interceptions while completing 61 of his 102 attempts. He's also ran for 212 yards on 30 carries but hasn't found the end zone. In Week 17, Jackson and the Ravens take on the Miami Dolphins who rank 15th against opposing quarterbacks allowing an average of 15.3 fantasy points per game. They haven't been the most efficient team on the road, but they were able to limit Dak Prescott and the Cowboys enough to get a win in Week 16. With that being said, the defense isn't as stout as the 49ers that Jackson just gashed for a big win. So, Jackson can be considered a QB1 and should remain a must-start in a game that could decide the first seed of the AFC.

  • Lamar Jackson Strengthens His Case For MVP

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson went into the Christmas night game against the San Francisco 49ers behind both Brock Purdy and Christian McCaffrey in MVP odds. After leading the team to a 33-19 win, he's now the MVP favorite on a lot of sportsbooks. Jackson finished with 252 yards through the air with two touchdowns while completing 23 out of his 35 attempts. He also added 45 yards on seven carries. The new MVP favorite finished as the QB8 on the week and that puts him as the QB5 overall this season. In Week 17, during a lot of fantasy championships, Jackson and the Ravens will take on the Miami Dolphins to decide who gets the number-one seed in the AFC.

  • Lamar Jackson Firmly In The QB1 Conversation Against 49ers

    Headshot for Lamar Jackson

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is the QB5 on the season so far and has put up a fantastic 19.5 fantasy points per game. He's been more of a dark horse in the MVP conversation and has the chance to cement his name in that discussion going up against the number-one team in the NFC. The San Francisco 49ers are the fifth toughest team against opposing quarterbacks as they only allow 13.0 fantasy points per game. The difference is that they haven't played many quarterbacks with the running ability of Jackson. He's first in rushing yards and fourth in rushing touchdowns among quarterbacks and has five games of 60 or more rushing yards. Despite the stingy defense, Jackson's running ability allows him to be a QB1 in this matchup.

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson collected another QB1-level performance finishing as the QB9 before the Monday night game kicks off. The former MVP completed 14 of his 24 throws for 171 yards, one touchdown, and one interception while running for 97 yards on 12 carries. Jackson was escaping tacklers left and right and was able to mix in some big throws along with big runs. The Jaguars defensive line looked exhausted and even though Jackson didn't turn that into a monster day, he was able to at least put up around 20 fantasy points. He'll have a tougher time in Week 16 against a stout San Francisco 49ers defense.

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson finished as the QB1 last week after a monster game against the Los Angeles Rams that went into overtime. Now, he sets his sights on the third-worst defense against opposing quarterbacks. The Jacksonville Jaguars give up an average of 19.2 fantasy points per game in four-point passing touchdown leagues. In four of their last five games, the Jaguars have allowed 300 or more passing yards and two or more touchdowns to quarterbacks. This equates to the Jaguars giving up 31.8% more fantasy points per game than the league average. Jackson is a must-play in all formats for this contest.

  • Lamar Jackson Will Play On Sunday

    Headshot for Lamar Jackson

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson (illness) will play in Week 14 against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday despite dealing with an illness this week and missing practice on Thursday, according to head coach John Harbaugh. "He was feeling good -- full of life," Harbaugh said Friday. "He looked good out there. He was back. He's recovered." When healthy, Jackson has been great in 2023, and he's gone 14-3 (.824) in regular-season games in December and January when he's been on the field. He is unlikely to have tight end Mark Andrews (ankle) the rest of the way, but Jackson is nevertheless a high-end QB1 for fantasy managers because of his rushing ability. Leave him in all starting fantasy lineups in Week 14 as he gets set to face the Rams in Baltimore.

  • Lamar Jackson Under The Weather Thursday

    Headshot for Lamar Jackson

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson (illness) missed practice on Thursday due to an illness. Jackson has popped up on the Week 14 injury coming off the team's bye, but he still has two full days to recover before having to suit up on Sunday to take on the Los Angeles Rams. We'll continue to keep a close eye on the 26-year-old signal-caller, but we'd expect him to be feeling better by Sunday and to play this weekend. Fantasy managers shouldn't be too worried right now and need to keep him locked in as a high-end QB1 in all lineups. If Jackson misses another practice on Friday and is questionable on the final injury report, there will be some more cause for concern.

  • Lamar Jackson Not Seen At Practice Thursday

    Headshot for Lamar Jackson

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson (undisclosed) was not seen during practice on Thursday. The star signal-caller is not known to be dealing with an injury, though back in Week 11 he may have been dealt a minor ankle injury after being tackled. The tweak was not serious enough to cost him any time in that game, though he was noticeably limping afterward. The missed practice is Jackson's first absence of the season, though the Ravens have yet to release an official report. Without any other news, it is likely this is simply a rest day, though on the off-chance that Jackson was to miss Week 14, fourth-year backup Tyler Huntley would be next in line for the start against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.
