Jackson averaged 18.7 PPG in his eight starts, throwing for 159 yards and 0.7 touchdowns while adding 80 yards and 0.57 touchdowns as a runner. The Ravens hired ground-game aficionado Greg Roman to coordinate the offense so it’s crystal clear that the team will continue to emphasize the run with Jackson at quarterback, though he has shown signs of improvement as a passer. He will continue to rack up points with his legs, so Jackson should be a high-floor fantasy quarterback in 2019.
Ingram is 29 years old, has dual threat ability and has averaged 4.6+ yards per carry in each of the last four seasons. The Ravens are likely to lead the NFL in all rushing categories, so Ingram should post RB2 numbers with RB1 upside if his touches are consistent.
Hill rushed for 3,539 yards across three seasons at Oklahoma State before the Ravens took him in the fourth round of the NFL Draft. He's not a big player, but his athletic profile is very solid while his closest comparable at Player Profiler is Reggie Bush. The Ravens' backfield is a bit crowded, but the fact that the Ravens drafted Hill at all given their RB corps speaks to what they think he can bring to the team. Mark Ingram likely leads this backfield in touches, but he's pushing 30 and missed some games due to injury in 2013-2015 (12 games missed), so if Ingram misses time, Hill will get his chance.
Once Lamar Jackson took over at quarterback, Andrews led the team in receiving yards (339) accounting for 26.0% of Jackson’s passing yards. He did that on just a 14.0% target share, so clearly Jackson and Andrews had a good thing going. Andrews was the No. 13 tight end over the final seven weeks of the season, which is nothing special, but if Jackson’s passing numbers rise and Andrews keeps the same usage rate, he could find himself in the top 10 at the end of the season.
