Player Outlook
Jackson, who won his second MVP award in 2023, comes into this season as a No. 1 Fantasy quarterback in all leagues. He's worth drafting in Round 3 in one-quarterback leagues, and he's a top-five overall selection in Superflex and two-quarterback formats. Last year, Jackson set career highs in completions (307), pass attempts (457) and passing yards (3,678), and he also added 24 passing touchdowns with just seven interceptions. Thankfully, he didn't tail off as a rusher with 821 yards and five touchdowns on 148 carries. There aren't many quarterbacks who can perform like Jackson, and now Baltimore's run game should improve with the addition of Derrick Henry. That shouldn't be considered a negative for Jackson, and hopefully, the healthy return of Mark Andrews and the continued growth of second-year receiver Zay Flowers enhances Jackson's performance as a passer. Jackson should be drafted among the top four quarterbacks this season with Patrick Mahomes, Jalen Hurts and Josh Allen.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Drops weight over offseason

    Jackson said Wednesday that he dropped weight over the offseason in an effort to be more agile in 2024, Jamison Hensley of reports. Jackson was listed at 215 pounds last season and 225 during the 2022 season. Earlier this month, Jackson indicated he was closer to 205 pounds, but it's unclear if that's his intended playing weight. An even more elusive Jackson would be dangerous to opposing defenses, and adding Derrick Henry and getting Mark Andrews back to full health after his season was derailed by a broken ankle could make the Baltimore offense even more lethal in 2024.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Joined by superstar RB

    Jackson is getting help in the backfield via Derrick Henry, with whom the Ravens agreed to terms on a two-year, $16 million contract Tuesday, Grant Gordon of reports. Jackson will form one of the league's most dangerous backfield tandems by allying with the 30-year-old, two-time rushing champion who spent the last eight seasons in Tennessee and could now finally give Baltimore a sledgehammer in the rushing game to complement the reigning MVP's elusiveness. The pair of Jackson and Henry could give the Ravens a new-look rushing attack finally capable of pushing the team over the edge, with big-play threat Keaton Mitchell (knee) providing a complementary boost. Meanwhile, J.K. Dobbins (Achilles) is scheduled for free agency, while Gus Edwards is scheduled to sign with the Chargers. Jackson tallied career-high marks with 3,678 passing yards and 8.0 yards per attempt in 2023 to go with 29 total touchdowns and 821 rushing yards. Henry, meanwhile, rushed for 1,167 yards and 12 touchdowns on 280 carries this past season.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Wins second MVP Award

    Jackson was named the Most Valuable Player on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Jackson was the favorite for the award since the Ravens downed Brock Purdy and the 49ers in Week 16 in decisive fashion. His overall resume was deserving of the honor as well, as Jackson tallied 29 total touchdowns while racking up career-best marks in passing yards (3,678) and yards per attempt (8.0). It was the second time that he's been named MVP of the league, with the first coming in 2019.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Key errors in season-ending loss

    Jackson completed 20 of 37 passes for 272 yards with one touchdown and one interception in the Ravens' 17-10 AFC Championship Game loss to the Chiefs on Sunday. He also rushed eight times for 54 yards and lost a fumble while catching one of his deflected passes for 13 yards. Jackson's final yardage numbers looked perfectly acceptable from a fantasy perspective, but his real-world impact on the game was both more muted and detrimental than those figures imply. The dynamic quarterback struggled with finding open targets against the Chiefs' suffocating coverage throughout the afternoon, and several of his rush attempts were the result of intense pressure from Kansas City. Jackson's second turnover was also critical, as he was picked off in the end zone with 6:54 remaining and the Ravens down by 10 points. The crushing ending to the season aside, Jackson put himself in position for MVP honors by throwing for 3,678 yards with 24 touchdowns and seven interceptions while adding 821 rushing yards and another five scores across 16 regular-season games, and in 2024, he'll play out the second year of the massive contract extension he signed this past offseason.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Four total touchdowns in win

    Jackson completed 16 of 22 passes for 152 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Saturday's 34-10 win over the Texans. He rushed the ball 11 times for 100 yards and an additional two scores. Jackson and the rest of Baltimore's offense got off to a relatively slow start, as they didn't find the end zone until midway through the second quarter. However, he took over from there, throwing for touchdowns of three and 15 yards while also finding the end zone on the ground with rushes of 15 and eight yards. Jackson had thrown at least one interception in each his four postseason games entering Saturday's matchup, though he had no turnovers in the blowout win. He also now has at least 100 rushing yards in three of five career playoff games. Jackson became the first player in NFL history (regular or postseason) to have a game with multiple TD passes and multiple rushing scores while throwing and rushing for over 100 yards to go with a 100-plus rating. He and the Ravens will host either the Bills or Chiefs next Sunday with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Won't play in Week 18

    Jackson won't play in Saturday's game against the Steelers, Jamison Hensley of reports. With the Ravens having secured the top seed in the AFC playoffs, Jackson will be rested in the team's regular-season finale. In his stead, Tyler Huntley will draw the start at quarterback this weekend, with Josh Johnson backing him up. Jackson -- the presumptive frontrunner for the NFL's MVP award -- will get an extended breather before the Ravens' postseason opener in the divisional round.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Remarkable numbers in marquee win

    Jackson completed 18 of 21 passes for 321 yards with five touchdowns and no interceptions and added six rushes for 35 yards in the Ravens' 56-19 win over the Dolphins on Sunday. Jackson's numbers, which netted a perfect 158.3 QB rating, essentially tell the tale of what type of afternoon it was for him and the Ravens as a whole. The one-time league MVP continued making an airtight case for another run at the honor with his spectacular performance, which was punctuated by touchdown tosses of 20 yards to Justice Hill, 75 yards to Zay Flowers, 35 yards and seven yards to Isaiah Likely and four yards to Patrick Ricard. Jackson now has an 11:2 TD:INT over his last four games, a sample in which he's eclipsed the 300-yard mark twice. With the AFC's No. 1 seed now in hand, it remains to be seen if Jackson logs any action in the Week 18 finale against the Steelers.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Leads team past 49ers

    Jackson completed 23 of 35 passes for 252 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Monday's 33-19 win over the 49ers. He added seven rushes for 45 yards. Baltimore ran a pass-heavy offense by their standard, as Jackson reached 30 pass attempts for only the seventh time this season despite playing from ahead for nearly the entire game. He responded with an efficient performance and his sixth multiple-passing touchdown effort of the campaign, which he connected on from six and nine yards away. While Jackson didn't need to use his rushing ability as much given the game script, he still narrowly missed out on 300 total yards. Given Brock Purdy's (neck) struggles on the opposite end of the contest, Jackson may have become the MVP favorite with his performance.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Modest passing numbers in win

    Jackson completed 14 of 24 passes for 171 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Sunday's 23-7 win over the Jaguars. He added 12 rushing attempts for 97 yards. Jackson finally broke through late in a low-scoring first half with a 16-yard touchdown pass to Isaiah Likely, which made up for an interception on the previous drive and put the Ravens up 10-0 with 1:12 remaining before halftime. The mobile quarterback and second-year tight end combined for another key play in the third quarter, as Jackson escaped a sack attempt and uncorked a 26-yard pass that Likely caught over two defenders at the 4-yard line. Jackson led the Ravens in rushing yards, but he was held to fewer than 200 passing yards for the fourth time in the last seven games. Up next for Jackson and the Ravens is a Week 16 Monday Night Football clash with the 49ers, who boast an 11-3 record identical to Baltimore's.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Rips through Rams

    Jackson completed 24 of 43 passes for 316 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 37-31 win over the Rams. He added 11 rushes for 70 yards. Jackson erupted in the win, topping 300 passing yards for the second time this season while also topping 40 passes for the first time on the campaign. He spread targets around evenly, finding each of Odell Beckham, Isaiah Likely and Zay Flowers for gains of at least 20 yards as well as touchdowns. Jackson was also active as a rusher, and he managed his highest yardage total on the ground since Week 3. Altogether, it was an excellent performance from Jackson, though it was only his second multi-touchdown performance in his last six games.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Manages game in victory

    Jackson completed 18 of 32 passes for 177 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Sunday's 20-10 win over the Chargers. He added 11 rushes for 39 yards. Jackson helped the Ravens to an early lead with a three-yard touchdown pass to Zay Flowers, but the offense largely stalled from there. Positively, Jackson avoided turnovers for the second consecutive game, and he continued to get plenty of opportunities as a rusher. He's done exactly what has been asked of him for much of the season, but Jackson has now failed to tally multiple touchdowns in eight of his 12 games to this point.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Four touchdowns against Detroit

    Jackson completed 21 of 27 passes for 357 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 38-6 win over Detroit. He added nine rushes for 36 yards and an additional score. Jackson had no trouble leading the Baltimore offense against what had been considered one of the better defenses in the league entering the game. He capped the team's first offensive possession with a seven-yard rushing touchdown, then threw for scores of 12 and 11 yards before halftime. Jackson wasn't reliant solely on touchdowns for his big performance, as he also tallied his first 300-yard passing effort since Week 5 of the 2021 campaign. He should have a chance for another big game in Week 8 in a matchup against Arizona.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Two TDs apiece rushing and passing

    Jackson completed 15 of 19 passes for 186 yards and two touchdowns while rushing nine times for 27 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 28-3 win over the Browns. He also committed two fumbles, losing one. Jackson scored a 10-yard rushing touchdown in the first quarter and added a two-yard touchdown run in the second quarter, as well as a seven-yard touchdown pass to Mark Andrews with 11 seconds remaining before halftime. An 18-yard touchdown pass to Andrews rounded out the scoring in the fourth quarter. Jackson has a 4:1 TD:INT and four rushing touchdowns heading into a Week 5 trip to Pittsburgh, but ball security has been a problem for the dual-threat quarterback, who has put the ball on the ground a league-high six times and lost three of those fumbles.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Bust Candidate (Lineup Decisions)

    Benching Jackson isn't something Fantasy managers really ever think about, but the road matchup figures to be challenging. He might be passing just a bit too cautiously to expect him to get big numbers through the air, too. Very few backup Fantasy quarterbacks could be used ahead of Jackson this week but I like Jordan Love and Russell Wilson as two options ahead of Jackson. However I'd still start Jackson over Geno Smith, Dak Prescott and Justin Fields, among others.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Big game as rusher

    Jackson completed 22 of 31 pass attempts for 202 yards and no touchdowns in Sunday's 22-19 overtime loss to the Colts. He added 14 rushes for 101 yards and two touchdowns. Jackson completed his pass attempts at a high rate, though he wasn't aggressive in pushing the ball down the field. Instead, his explosive plays came on the ground as he accounted for both of the Ravens' touchdowns with his legs, scampering into the end zone from eight and 10 yards away. It was expected that Baltimore's passing attack would be improved under new offensive coordinator Todd Monken, and while that has yet to occur, Jackson still has multiple touchdowns in two of his first three games this season.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Not on injury report

    Jackson (hand) isn't listed on the Wednesday's injury report ahead of Sunday's home game against Indianapolis. Jackson suffered a stinger in his left hand toward the end of a 27-24 win over the Bengals this past Sunday, but he didn't express any concern about the injury when discussing it with reporters after the game. His absence from the Week 3 injury report entirely should erase any concern fantasy managers might have had about his health.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Throws two TDs to beat Bengals

    Jackson completed 24 of 33 passes for 237 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Bengals. He added 12 rushing attempts for 54 yards. Jackson suffered a stinger in his left hand late in the game, per Jamison Hensley of ESPN, but he told reporters after the game that he's fine and flexed his hands as evidence. The dual-threat quarterback was happy to have favorite target Mark Andrews (quadriceps) back, as Andrews led the Ravens with eight targets, including a three-yard touchdown in the third quarter. Jackson's other touchdown pass was a 17-yarder to Nelson Agholor to take a 27-17 lead in the fourth. Assuming Jackson's non-throwing hand is indeed fine, he'll remain among the top fantasy quarterback options in Week 3 against the Colts.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Not in line to play Monday

    With coach John Harbaugh noting Saturday that Josh Johnsonand Anthony Brown are each in line to play a half in Monday's preseason game against the Commanders, Jackson once again isn't slated to see action, Jamison Hensley of reports. Jackson also didn't play in the Ravens' preseason opener, and this time around Harbaugh relays that Johnson will get the start Monday and play the first half, with Brown expected to take over for the second half. Jackson's final opportunity to see exhibition snaps will come Saturday, Aug. 26 against the Buccaneers.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Not slated to play Saturday

    Jackson is not in line to play in Saturday's preseason opener against the Eagles, with coach John Harbaugh noting Thursday that none of the Ravens' established starters will play in the contest. Though the team's key veteran starters, including Jackson, will sit this one out, Jonas Shaffer of relays via Harbaugh that some of the Ravens' key young players such as Zay Flowers could potentially suit up Saturday. Jackson's next chance to log preseason game action will occur Monday, Aug. 21 against the Commanders.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Still in team's plans, per DeCosta

    Ravens GM Eric DeCosta reiterated Thursday that he wants to sign Jackson to a long-term deal and believes the quarterback is "the right player for this team," ESPN's Jamison Hensley reports. It's no secret the Ravens hope to keep Jackson; they just haven't been willing to give him the contract he wants. He's also been unable to find it from another team, perhaps in part because the non-exclusive franchise tag would require the loss of two first-round picks if the Ravens were to not match an offer sheet. The team has until July 17 to work out a long-term deal with Jackson, who has yet to sign the franchise tender and thus won't be at the start of the offseason program to learn new OC Todd Monken's playbook. DeCosta's comments Thursday came at the introductory press conference for Odell Beckham, who didn't receive any assurances Jackson will be with the team but expects it will play out that way. "The goal is to come here and have that possibility with [Jackson]," Beckham said Thursday.
