Jackson was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list on Monday. The move clears the way for Jackson to start Tuesday’s game against the Cowboys. Griffin started in his place last Wednesday, but had to leave the game after hurting his hamstring. McSorley replaced him and will back up Jackson now that Griffin is on injured reserve, the story said.
BAL QB Lamar Jackson - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Cincinnati Bengals
Lamar Jackson had a quality game against the Giants last week, throwing for only 183 yards, but tossing a pair of touchdowns and adding 80 rushing yards. Jackson needs 92 yards in the season finale to record his second-straight 1,000-yard rushing season, and he’s accounted for 30 touchdowns this year – 23 passing and seven rushing – making him a quality weekly starter.
To finish the season, Jackson gets to face a hot Bengals team that has won two in a row, but just gave up big numbers to DeShaun Watson, and ranks 19th in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks. Jackson should be able to finish the season strong and his rushing production gives him a high floor in championship tournaments. Start him.
