Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (illness) took full practice reps again Friday.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside

Lamar Jackson was a dynamic playmaker in college. Not only did he throw 69 touchdown passes during his three years at Lousville, he also ran for 50 more. Jackson averaged 6.3 yards rushing the ball and has tremendous arm strength to go alongside excellent intangibles as a leader on the field. If Jackson gets a chance to start, he has the dual-threat capabilities to make an immediate fantasy impact.

Fantasy Downside

Joe Flacco is entrenched as the starter for at least another season, making it hard to imagine Jackson getting a lot of snaps. His playmaking might put him on the field for gadget plays as a rookie, but those are rarely consistent enough to trust for fantasy owners. Jackson also projects as a raw talent throwing the ball, who needs to learn to make deeper reads before he’s ready to carry a team at the NFL level.

2018 Bottom Line

Jackson is an intriguing dynasty option and has some late-round value in deep leagues and best-ball formats due to his playmaking potential. However, as long as Flacco is still the starter, Jackson should be avoided in most leagues.
