BAL QB Lamar Jackson - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 16 at Cleveland Browns
If aliens came to the planet and challenged the Looney Toons to a game of football – or any sport really – they wouldn’t need to steal the powers from multiple athletes. All they would need is Lamar Jackson’s talent spread out over 11 two-way players. The Lamar-Stars would be diabolical, and the Toons wouldn’t stand a chance. Jackson not only broke Michael Vick’s single-season rushing record for a quarterback with 86 yards on the ground last week against the Jets, but he also threw five touchdown passes! He’s been a monster all season.
This week, he faces a Browns defense that ranks 25th in the league in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks, but it doesn’t really matter. Jackson would be an elite fantasy option even against a great defense, so facing the Browns is just another reason not to sit him. It is worth noting Cleveland forced Jackson into a pair of interceptions and a loss the last time they met, but he still managed three touchdowns and 66 yards rushing in that game, giving him an exceptionally high floor. Start him. Start him. Start him.
