Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson completed 18 of 26 passing attempts for 239 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, Sept. 19. Jackson also ran 16 times for 107 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Huddle Up: Jackson shook off a rough start, which included a pick six, to lead the Ravens to a much-needed win over a Chiefs team that had handled them with relative ease each of the past three seasons. As usual, Jackson's best weapon was his legs, and he led the team in carries and yards. On paper, a trip to Detroit seems to be just what the doctor ordered after a couple of tough games to open the year. While it wouldn't be shocking to see the Ravens come out a little flat, Jackson is still an easy chose as a high-end QB1 against the Lions.

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson completed 19-of-30 passes for 235 yards, one touchdown and an interception, and he rushed 12 times for a game-high 86 yards in Week 1 against the Las Vegas Raiders. He didn't throw an interception, but had a costly fumble lost in overtime in the loss and two lost fumbles in total.
Huddle Up: The fumble was bad news for real-life fans, but fantasy players weren't hurt by the miscue too much. He had a strong opening stat line with both a passing touchdown and rushing score. He'll look to bounce back against the visiting Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday Night Football in Week 2.

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson remains out of practice and on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Aug. 6.
Huddle Up: Jackson still lacks the passing polish to regain his overall QB1 status, and he has missed eight practices now. He has some catching up to do, but he remains a high-end QB1 option.

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson and RB Gus Edwards were placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, July 28.
Huddle Up: Both Jackson and Edwards will miss some practice time but should be back in plenty of time to be ready for Week 1. Jackson should be a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues, while Edwards can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy back.

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson is out of practice Wednesday, July 28, due to a case related to COVID-19. Jackson had a test flagged by NFL officials, and they're waiting to see the results.
Huddle Up: Jackson fell back to 10th in fantasy points at the position in what was a nightmare of a season. He's a little better than that, but his passing flaws may keep him in the midrange QB1 area.

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson is negotiating a contract extension with his mother representing him as his business manager.
Huddle Up: Jackson figures to land one of the higher-paying contracts in the league. Jackson was 10th in fantasy points at the position in what was a disappointing 2020. He could creep back into the midrange QB1 discussion, but his passing prowess isn't polished enough to gamble with much more.

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson is in line for a contract extension, and the team hopes to reach an agreement before the start of training camp, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Jackson's extension is considered the top priority for the Ravens.
Huddle Up: The two sides have several weeks to reach a deal, and Jackson likely will become of the top paid quarterbacks in the NFL. He should be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues because of his ability to throw and run.

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson might have some games where he is 'letting it rip,' according to head coach Greg Roman. 'Our goal is to win, and if teams are giving us opportunities to throw the ball deep, it's upon us to work hard and figure that out and really take advantage of that because those are game-changing plays,' Roman said.
Huddle Up: While more big plays in the passing game aren't a bad thing, any change in Baltimore's offensive approach that reduces Jackson's rushing numbers will ultimately hurt his fantasy value. He should remain a QB1 regardless, but his ceiling could slip a bit if the Ravens actually commit to throwing the ball more often.
