Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (illness) has tested positive for COVID-19, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation because Robert Griffin III will be the starting quarterback in Week 12 if Jackson is placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. Griffin would not be a starting option in fantasy leagues if he plays.

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson completed 17 of his 29 passes for 186 yards, a touchdown and an interception and rushed 13 times for 51 yards in a 30-24 loss to the Tennessee Titans in Week 11.
Huddle Up: Jackson continues to provide 50-plus rushing yards almost every week, but his passing stats disappointed yet again. He is still a weekly QB1, but Jackson hasn't been a tide lifting all boats for fantasy teams like he was during his MVP campaign.

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson may be used less frequently than before in the shotgun formation, in the hopes that the team's offense can get back on track. The Ravens have lost two of their last three games and have had issues with poor shotgun snaps in recent weeks.
Huddle Up: Although Jackson has not posted the fantasy numbers most owners had hoped for this season, he should still be viewed as a QB1 option in all formats for this week's game versus the Tennessee Titans.

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson completed 24 of 34 passes for 249 yards, two touchdowns and an interception against the New England Patriots on Sunday, Nov. 15. Jackson also ran 11 times for 55 yards.
Huddle Up: Jackson wasn't great, but he didn't get much help from his receivers (multiple dropped passes), his center (terrible snaps) or the weather as a rainy evening turned into a torrential downpour late with the Ravens trailing. For all of that, Jackson still passed for his second-highest total of 2020 and threw for multiple TDs for the fourth time in his last six games. While he's not the upper-tier option owners hoped for, Jackson should still be a QB1 next Sunday when the Ravens host Tennessee.

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson completed 19-of-23 passes for 170 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 9 against the Indianapolis Colts while rushing 13 times for a game-high 58 yards and a score.
Huddle Up: Jackson failed to throw a touchdown for the first time in eight games this season. He has rushed for a score in three of his past five outings. He'll look to get back on track in Week 10 on the road against the New England Patriots on Sunday night.

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson is sporting a 76.4 passer rating, 53.9 percent completion rate and averaging 5.2 yards per pass attempt when the opponent has sent five or more rushers in 2020. When Jackson isn't facing the blitz, those numbers are 103.5, 64.0 and 8.0, respectively.
Huddle Up: There are at least a couple of reasons why this information is pertinent in Week 9: 1) the Ravens' opponent (the Indianapolis Colts) has blitzed less (18.8 percent) than all but three teams in the league this season and 2) Jackson threw for 24 touchdowns - 10 more than any other quarterback - versus only two interceptions against the blitz last season. Jackson is always a good bet to be useful in fantasy, but he could be in for another inefficient day this weekend if the Colts change their stripes a bit and pick their spots well.

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson completed 13 of his 28 passes for 208 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions, and he rushed 16 times for 65 yards and lost two fumbles in a 28-24 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 8.
Huddle Up: Jackson continues to post pedestrian passing numbers, but his rushing stats help steady his overall production. He faces a solid Indianapolis defense in Week 9, but Jackson is still a QB1 candidate.

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson completed 16 of his 27 passes for 186 yards and a touchdown and rushed nine times for 108 yards and a score in a 30-28 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 6.
Huddle Up: Jackson remains relatively quiet as a passer, but he had his most explosive rushing performance of the year. His running ability gives him as much upside as any fantasy quarterback.

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson went 19-for-37 for 180 yards, two touchdowns and one interception against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 5. He only rushed for three yards on two carries during the game.
Huddle Up: Jackson was not asked to do much against the Bengals but was still able to be involved in two touchdowns. He should have success next week against the Philadelphia Eagles and will be a No. 1 quarterback in all leagues.
