Lamar Jackson to get QB time for Ravens even if not the starter

Ravens coach John Harbaugh says rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson will be part of the quarterback rotation, even as Joe Flacco remains the starter.

“One way or another, he’s going to be out there, taking snaps,” Harbaugh told John Kryk of the Toronto Sun. “Lamar is also a weapon for us, who can play quarterback. And we’re going to play Lamar at quarterback,” Harbaugh said. “So we’re going to play all of our good players. I don’t see why we wouldn’t. You’ve got this first.”

Fantasy Impact: 

The writing is already on the wall here for Flacco to not make it through the 2018 season as the starter. The Ravens have already been seen installing designed quarterback runs, and their offensive coaching staff has extensive time working with mobile quarterbacks like Michael Vick and Colin Kaepernick. Fantasy gamers already recognize that Jackson starting is a matter of when, not if, as he continues to go higher than Flacco in drafts.
