John Harbaugh on Joe Flacco: “Joe can still play... Joe’s going to have a market, a lot of teams are going to want Joe. ... Joe Flacco is a great talent, he’s a better person, he’s the best QB in the history of the Ravens... he’s going to be just fine.”

Jackson struggled most of the game before almost rallying the Ravens in the fourth quarter. But the team never made the switch to Flacco, which was probably a telling sign before Harbaugh's comments after the game. There are certainly some teams who could give Flacco a look heading into the 2019 season.

Wildcard Round vs. Los Angeles Chargers
Lamar Jackson finished the season off with a thrilling victory over the Browns that won the Ravens the AFC North division title and a playoff matchup against the Chargers. Jackson threw for 179 yards in the season finale, but added 90 yards and two touchdowns on 20 rushing attempts. Jackson has averaged 17 carries per game as a starter, and even though the Ravens will continue to develop him as a passer, he’ll have a high fantasy floor every week due to his ability to add points on the ground.
Jackson put up 204 yards and a touchdown, along with 39 yards rushing against the Chargers two weeks ago. Those aren’t great numbers, but expect the Ravens to continue a similar formula of trying to win the game by keeping the ball on the ground and playing excellent defense. Jackson is a nice, low-cost option for the wildcard round in most fantasy formats, but the quality of quarterback options available might push him out of consideration in many leagues. He’s a middle-tier fantasy quarterback this week, given the competition.
