Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson has rushed for at least 10 yards on 99 of his carries since entering the league in 2018 - 42 more than any other quarterback over that span - according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: It should come as no surprise a player that already has two 1,000-yard rushing seasons - with less than 200 carries each time - is so proficient at ripping off chunk gains on the ground. There's also no reason to expect him to stop anytime soon, as Baltimore has made it clear it wants to remain a running team and wants Jackson toting the rock around 10 times per game. Jackson should be considered a top-five fantasy quarterback again in 2021 despite coming off a slightly disappointing by his standards.

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson could sign an extension this offseason, according to general manager Eric DeCosta, who will begin talks with Jackson in 10 days.
Huddle Up: Jackson ended up the QB10 in traditional leagues as he missed a game due to COVID-19. With the emergence of Josh Allen, Justin Herbert and others, the position has become pretty loaded. Dak Prescott (leg) is expected back to join the flux of QB1s. A midrange QB1 is probably where Jackson is supposed to be considering the plights he faces through the air. Don't overdraft him for the rushing numbers next season because the gap has narrowed.

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson is wanted on a long-term contract, according to head coach John Harbaugh Wednesday, Jan. 20. 'Absolutely, we want Lamar to sign a long-term deal and be with us,' Harbaugh said. 'I'm totally certain that's going to happen. When it happens, that's the details.'
Huddle Up: Harbaugh also said they aren't going to adjust the offense to be more pass-heavy. So long as Jackson is healthy, he'll be a top fantasy QB for the foreseeable future due to his added production on the ground.

Confirming previous reports, Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (concussion) did suffer a concussion near the end of the third quarter of the AFC Divisional Round game against the Buffalo Bills, according to head coach John Harbaugh.
Huddle Up: Jackson will have plenty of time to recover from the concussion during the offseason and should be at full strength when the team's offseason program gets underway. He remains one of the league's top quarterback options because of his rushing ability and should be a starting option in fantasy leagues next season.

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson is expected to have his fifth-year option picked up by the team this offseason, and the two sides are then expected to look at working out a 'big-time' contract extension this summer.
Huddle Up: Jackson followed up his 2019 league MVP season with 3,762 yards of total offense, his second-straight top-10 fantasy QB finish and his first playoff win, and he certainly is set to cash in with a huge second contract.

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (thumb) wore a glove in the wild-card game against the Tennessee Titans Sunday, Jan. 10, but said Tuesday, Jan. 12, he's good to go.
Huddle Up: Jackson didn't have a great passing day against the soft Titans pass defense, going 17-for-24 for 179 yards with a pick, but he returned fantasy value with 16 carries for 136 yards and a touchdown. He's likely to lean on his running ability once again against the Buffalo Bills in the AFC Divisional Round.
