Ravens QB Lamar Jackson wants to throw 30 times a game

Lamar Jackson is looking to rely more on his arm in 2019 than he had throughout his entire rookie season with the Ravens.

Baltimore's signal caller appeared on Mad Dog Sports Radio on Monday and was asked by CBS Sports Network's Adam Schein what the ideal run-to-pass ratio would be for him in Year 2.

"Probably throwing, probably 30 passes a game," Jackson said. "Running, I probably won't have as many attempts as last year. We have a great backfield and we're just going to take what the defense gives us and take advantage of it and just go from there."

Fantasy Impact: 

Jackson didn't have a single game last season where he dropped back and passed 30 or more times, so this would be quite the change of pace for him. During his eight starts under center last season, Jackson averaged 23.4 passes a game, with the highest (29 attempts) coming in Baltimore's playoff loss to the Chargers on Wild Card Weekend. HC John Harbaugh said "bet the over" when it came to Jackson coming close to the 139 attempts by Cam Newton in 2017, so the Raven may not want to see 30 passing attempts. But, it sounds like Jackson is trying to be a more well-rounded QB.
