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.

  • Lamar Jackson Puts Up 300 Total Yards

    Headshot for Lamar Jackson

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson posted a huge game on the ground during the 22-19 loss to the Colts. The former MVP ended the game with 101 yards and two touchdowns on 14 carries while completing 22 of his 31 throws for 202 yards. The lack of pass protection didn't allow for many scoring opportunities through the air but Jackson salvaged his week by finding running room more often than not. With Justice Hill (foot) out and Gus Edwards (concussion) leaving early, Jackson was the main beneficiary when it came to running the ball. In Week 4, they'll face the toughest defense they've seen so far in the Cleveland Browns.

  • Lamar Jackson Remains A Top Option In Week 3

    Headshot for Lamar Jackson

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is a must-start again as he's set to take on a Colts team in Week 3 that can be exploited in the passing game. Through two games, Jackson has completed 74.5% of his passes for 406 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. The Colts gave up 31 points and 241 yards through the air against the Jaguars and then just let up another 20 points and 384 yards to the Texans. Jackson's weapons and his escapability from the pocket allow him to be a high-end QB1 option in this matchup.

  • Lamar Jackson Not On The Injury Report For Week 3

    Headshot for Lamar Jackson

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson (hand) wasn't listed on the Week 3 injury report on Wednesday. Jackson suffered a minor left-hand injury in the Week 2 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. It's no surprise that he isn't listed with an injury designation to begin the practice week ahead of a home matchup against the Indianapolis Colts this weekend. Jackson has thrown for 406 yards on 55 attempts (career-high 74.5 completion percentage) through two weeks against the Texans and Bengals with two touchdowns and one interception through the air. He'll get a vulnerable Colts defense this week and will once again be a high-end QB1 for fantasy managers.

  • Lamar Jackson Gets Back On Track In Week 2 Win

    Headshot for Lamar Jackson

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson bounced back from a Week 1 debacle in a big way. The former MVP finished with 237 yards while completing 24 of his 33 pass attempts and two touchdowns. He also added 54 yards on the ground on 12 carries. Jackson looked a lot more comfortable this time around and didn't turn the ball over once. He distributed his throws very evenly as six pass-catchers hauled in at least three passes each. This type of performance is more indicative of what he's likely to do as the season goes on. He's still a QB1 heading into the matchup against the Colts in Week 3.

  • Lamar Jackson - Week 2 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    Headshot for Lamar Jackson

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson turned in a poor performance in his first action of the season. After missing all three preseason games, Jackson showed some rust. Now, he and the Ravens go up against a Bengals squad that was embarrassed by the Browns. The star quarterback is 6-2 against Cincinnati in his career and if Mark Andrews returns, Jackson gets his safety blanket back. His connection with Zay Flowers seemed strong and he's still getting more comfortable with the new offense. Despite a bad first game, Jackson is still a must-start and should be considered a QB1 in superflex leagues as well.

  • Lamar Jackson Posts An Uninspiring Performance

    Headshot for Lamar Jackson

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson didn't seem very comfortable during the team's first regular season action under new Offensive Coordinator, Todd Monken. The former MVP finished with 169 yards through the air while completing 17 of his 22 attempts with one interception. He also gathered 38 yards on six carries and fumbled the ball twice. Only one of his fumbles ended as a turnover, but he looked careless and hesitant with the ball all game long. On the bright side, this was his first action of the season and Mark Andrews didn't play in this contest. He'll need to step against division rival Cincinnati in Week 2.

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson hasn't played since Week 13 of last season but is now equipped with a new contract and many more playmakers. He's kicking off the new season against a Houston Texans team that ranked 30th in total defense last year. With proven commodities in Odell Beckham Jr. and Mark Andrews, while having promising young receivers in Rashod Bateman and Zay Flowers, Jackson will have plenty of options at his disposal. He's a surefire start in Week 1 with top-three quarterback potential.

  • Ronnie Stanley Listed As Limited At Practice

    Headshot for Lamar Jackson

    Baltimore Ravens left tackle Ronnie Stanley (ankle) was listed as a limited practice participant on Wednesday in the lead-up to Week 1 of the 2023 regular season against the Houston Texans. Stanley's ankle has given him trouble since the second half of the 2020 season -- he's played in just 12 games in the last two years -- but the 29-year-old All-Pro said back in June that this is the healthiest he's felt in years. The Ravens are likely just playing it safe by keeping Stanley limited in practice heading into the start of a new season. If he is indeed past his frustrating ankle injury and can return to his All-Pro form, it would be a huge deal for the Ravens offense under new coordinator Todd Monken. He'll likely be available to protect quarterback Lamar Jackson's blind side in Week 1.

  • Lamar Jackson Will Not Play In Saturday's Preseason Game

    Headshot for Lamar Jackson

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson will not play in the team's final preseason game on Saturday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This shouldn't come as a surprise as Jackson hasn't played a single snap this preseason. Most, if not all, of the Ravens key offensive weapons haven't played this preseason as well. As of now, everyone appears to be healthy for Baltimore as Rashod Bateman (foot) recently returned to practice. The Ravens have a pristine Week 1 matchup as they host the Houston Texans so Jackson and company should be all systems go. The QB1 will have his full set of weapons for that contest and should be airing it out more this season in new offensive coordinator Todd Monken's system.

  • Mark Andrews Could Remain Lamar Jackson's Go-To Target

    Headshot for Lamar Jackson

    If training camp practices are any indication, Baltimore Ravens tight end Mark Andrews will remain quarterback Lamar Jackson's go-to target in the passing game in 2023 despite the additions of receivers Odell Beckham Jr., Nelson Agholor and rookie first-rounder Zay Flowers and the return of a healthy Rashod Bateman. The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec writes that Jackson loves throwing the ball between the numbers to his big and athletic tight end, and they've built a strong chemistry over the years. The 27-year-old certainly will have more competition for targets, but as long as he stays healthy, fantasy managers are going to expect him to finish as a top-three TE1 with the Ravens looking to improve their passing game under new offensive coordinator Todd Monken.

  • Lamar Jackson Won't Play In Preseason Opener Saturday

    Headshot for Lamar Jackson

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson won't play in Saturday's preseason opener against the Philadelphia Eagles, according to head coach John Harbaugh. Most teams hold their most important offensive players out of early preseason action, so this shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. While Jackson doesn't expect to run as much in new offensive coordinator Todd Monken's scheme, the 26-year-old dual-threat signal-caller remains a top-five fantasy QB1, especially with the Ravens fully committed to improving their passing attack in 2023. Jackson has missed valuable time late in the last two seasons due to lower-body injuries, but the upside just remains too high to dock him much in the fantasy rankings.

  • Lamar Jackson To Get Rid Of Wristband

    Headshot for Lamar Jackson

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson won't wear a wristband this season to assist with play-calling. New offensive coordinator Todd Monken requested it for various reasons, so the signal-caller will get rid of it. Hopefully, the move will work out in Jackson's favor, considering he's coming off arguably the worst year of his career. But he is seemingly healthy and armed with a new five-year, $260 million contract heading into the 2023-24 campaign. The 26-year-old also has new additions on offense, specifically Zay Flowers and Odell Beckham Jr., meaning he has an excellent chance of re-establishing himself as an elite fantasy quarterback.

  • Zay Flowers Has Played All Three WR Positions This Offseason

    Headshot for Mark Andrews

    Baltimore Ravens rookie wide receiver Zay Flowers was selected with the No. 22 overall pick in the 2023 NFL draft, meaning the team clearly expects him to be involved right away. In an interview on The Lounge podcast, Flowers said he has been playing all three wide receiver positions this offseason. "That's what I want. That's exactly what I want," Flowers said. "As long as I'm touching the ball, I feel like I can make a play from anywhere, no matter where it is." Versatility is never a bad thing for a receiver's fantasy football outlook, so it's a promising development. The Boston College product will start his career with plenty of target competition in Mark Andrews, Rashod Bateman, and Odell Beckham Jr., but the latter two have had plenty of injury issues over the last couple of seasons. That said, Flowers could find himself as a top-two option in the new-look Ravens offense led by offensive coordinator Todd Monken and quarterback Lamar Jackson. He has a wide range of fantasy football outcomes for his rookie campaign.
