Week 9 at New Orleans Saints
Lamar Jackson had a decent game last week in a victory over the Buccaneers. He threw for 238 yards and a pair of touchdowns, adding 43 yards on the ground. Jackson has 553 rushing yards on the season and has accounted for 17 touchdowns – including two rushing – and thrown six interceptions.
This week, Jackson faces a Saints defense that ranks 12th in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks. New Orleans just straight up destroyed the Raiders and limited Derek Carr to a paltry 1.9 fantasy points – 30th in the league, behind his backup Jarrett Stidham. Still, Jackson is in another class of fantasy quarterback, and his rushing potential makes him a must-start each week, regardless of matchup. We have him, once again, ranked among the top quarterback options.
