2022 RTSports Outlook

Jackson had an ankle injury that cut his season short but he was productive once again as the starter for the Ravens. He was 15th overall in fantasy quarterback scoring despite the missed games (six). Jackson had three games with 30-plus fantasy points. He got more chances to air it out, having 30-plus pass attempts nine times. Jackson did have a few more turnover issues, finishing with a career high 13 interceptions. So he averaged a little more than an interception per game. Jackson was highly productive on the ground, rushing for 767 yards. He was on his way to a third straight 1,000-yard rushing season. Jackson continues to make strides as a passer but needs to keep improving in that area to become a more consistent quarterback. But even with that said, Jackson is a dynamic playmaker as a runner or thrower. He can make plays all over the field because of his athleticism. You have to worry about his durability because of all his carries and missed time last year. It might start catching up to him sooner than later.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Jackson is a top-10 fantasy quarterback capable of finishing first overall. His rushing totals are the best of any quarterback right now. He is about a lock to get 1,000-rushing yards if he plays a full season. This gives him a ton of weekly consistency. Take him as a No. 1 and hope he can make more strides as a passer to take his game to a new level. Look for around 3,500-passing yards, 1,000-rushing yards and around 35 total scores.

RotoBaller's Outlook

Baltimore Ravens quarterbackLamar Jacksonhad the worst season of his career in 2021, finishing as the QB16, primarily because he only played in 11 total games. The 25-year-old still managed quality production with 2,882 passing yards, 16 passing touchdowns, 767 rushing yards, and two rushing scores, which would have been a full season pace of 4,083 yards and 23 touchdowns passing along with 1,086 yards and three touchdowns rushing. Compared to seven in 2019 and 2020, the two rushing touchdowns stand out as an area to expect positive regression in. Despite missing time, the 2018 first-round pick finished as a top-five fantasy quarterback three times, including a No. 1 overall finish. The 2019 NFL MVP is the most athletic rusher in the NFL, evidenced by his highlight reel runs and yards per attempt finishes of first in 2019, first in 2020, and third in 2021 among all players. He also led all quarterbacks in rushing yards the past three seasons. Additionally, the Baltimore Ravens averaged 35.9 pass attempts per game last season, their highest since 2016, which could signal an increase in passing volume moving forward. Jackson is a lock for 1,000 rushing yards and five rushing touchdowns, providing a distinct advantage over every other quarterback, and while it's unlikely Jackson passes the ball 36 times per game, expect 3,000+ passing yards and 25+ passing touchdowns, making him a top-five quarterback, with number one overall potential. Jackson is currently ranked 5th in Rotoballer's rankings with an ADP of 57 overall, allowing you to bolster your roster with elite talent at other positions before drafting him as your quarterback, making him the optimal target.

Player Notes
Aug 6 5:13pm ET

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson and TE Mark Andrews won't play in the preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 11.

Fantasy Spin: Neither player is dealing with injuries so this is just a precaution. Jackson remains a top-five option at his position while Andrews will look to repeat as the TE1 in 2022.

From TheHuddle

Aug 6 4:40pm ET

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson won't play during the preseason opener on Thursday against the Titans. This isn't a surprise, primarily since the 2019 NFL MVP may not get any reps until closer to Week 1. Even then, Jackson isn't a lock to see the field throughout the preseason. The 25-year-old has bulked since the end of last season. He has also demonstrated added "zip" to his throws in camp, so he has top-five fantasy upside at the position heading into the 2022-23 campaign. Regarding the exhibition versus Tennessee, Tyler Huntley, Brett Hundley, and Anthony Brown are listed behind Jackson on the depth chart, so there's a chance all of them will receive some snaps.

Jul 29 12:40pm ET

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson bulked up in the offseason, and it has shown on his throws so far in training camp. He has thrown the ball with more velocity and had tighter spirals. Jackson was 12-for-17 (70.5%) on his passes in team drills on Thursday, including a 55-yard touchdown pass to rookie Isaiah Likely. "He's strong and he looks great," head coach John Harbaugh said. Jackson also worked on cleaning up his throwing mechanics in the offseason, so that likely has played a big part as well. The 25-year-old disappointed in 2021 due to a late-season injury, but he's determined to bounce back for fantasy managers as a top-five signal-caller.

Jul 29 10:33am ET

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson added lean mass in the offseason, and he has been throwing tighter spirals with more velocity in camp. He was 12-for-17 in team drills with a 55-yard touchdown pass.

Fantasy Spin: There was a note earlier in the week that he has shown pinpoint accuracy as well. Look out, Jackson could be coming back for that QB1 spot.

From TheHuddle

Jul 28 7:40pm ET

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is practicing at training camp despite not having reached a long-term contract extension with the team. Jackson told reporters on Thursday that "we're having a mutual conversation" and "we're keeping it in house." The 25-year-old signal-caller doesn't have an agent, but head coach John Harbaugh said, "both sides are motivated to get the job done." Earlier in the year, the Ravens took the stance that they were waiting for Jackson to seriously approach them about a new deal. "I just want to win at the end of the day. I just want to be great." Jackson is motivated to be great again after a disappointing 2021 season that ended with him on the sidelined due to injury. With better health, he should bounce back as a top-five fantasy QB.

From RotoBaller

Jul 28 10:10am ET

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson practiced with the team on Wednesday at training camp, and teammates said there was no indication that his contract was on his mind. Jackson is entering the final year of his rookie contract, and his base salary of $23 million is guaranteed in 2022, but he has no guarantees beyond this year. An injury at practice could reduce his future earning potential. If Jackson plays out this year on his rookie deal, he'd be a free agent next March, but the Ravens would presumably use the franchise tag on him. His presence on the field this week indicates he's willing to play this year without a new deal. Contract issues aside, the 25-year-old should be considered a top-five fantasy QB despite disappointing in 2021 due to an injury late in the year.

From RotoBaller

Jul 28 9:13am ET

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson nailed a back-shoulder pass to WR Devin Duvernay in practice Wednesday, July 27, that drew rave reviews.

Fantasy Spin: Jackson is practicing despite his contract situation, and he looks to be in a good place. He'll have to remain healthy, but he's a good upper-middle QB1 with top-2 potential.

From TheHuddle

Jul 22 11:50am ET

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson reported to training camp early on Thursday, with the team's first full-squad practice set for next Wednesday. The Ravens and Jackson continue to be in ongoing contract negotiations, and he's next in line for a lucrative long-term deal after the Arizona Cardinals signed Kyler Murray to a five-year extension on Thursday. Whether he has an extension or not, Jackson should be a top-five fantasy QB in 2022 despite finishing the 2021 campaign as the QB15 while playing in only 12 games due to injury. The 25-year-old bulked up this offseason and spent time working on his throwing mechanics. It's safe to say that he's motivated to have another big season in 2022 after ending last year on a sour note.

From RotoBaller

Jul 22 11:50am ET

CBS Sports' Jonathan Jones gets the sense that the deal that quarterback Kyler Murray signed with the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday for five years and $230.5 million doesn't necessarily impact Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson's contract-extension talks. Jackson is a former unanimous NFL MVP with two playoff appearances and one playoff win, so he should be aiming to match and top Deshaun Watson's $230 million fully guaranteed deal with the Cleveland Browns. Despite a down year in 2021 by his standards due to an injury late last season, Jackson should still be considered a top-five fantasy QB now that he's fully healthy entering the 2022 campaign.

From RotoBaller

Jul 21 3:13pm ET

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson reported to training camp Thursday, July 21 - six days ahead of the team's first full-team practice on July 27.

Fantasy Spin: This news is only notable in that Jackson apparently has no interest in holding out for a new contract. Jackson spent his offseason bulking up, adding more than 10 pounds to get to 220. Even after losing Marquise Brown, Jackson figures to be a top-five fantasy quarterback with overall QB1 upside.

From TheHuddle

Jul 11 1:10am ET

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson appears more open than ever to finally come to terms on a new contract. Both sides have pointed fingers throughout the offseason as to why a deal hasn't been completed. Yet, with training camp approaching, Jackson indicated he's not thinking about holding out, regardless if an agreement has been reached by then. The 2019 MVP is entering the option year of his rookie deal and is slated to receive $23 million. Unquestionably, the 25-year-old is the face of the franchise, so the Ravens would love to have him on the roster for many seasons to come. However, whether or not Jackson puts pen to paper has yet to be seen. But unless something changes, fantasy managers can draft Jackson without worrying about him missing time over the dispute.

From RotoBaller

Jun 28 5:40pm ET

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson confirmed that he added 12 to 15 pounds of muscle mass this offseason. He said he usually played at between 205 and 208 pounds, but he's now at 220 pounds. "I just wanted to do it. See how I look, see how I feel," Jackson said. "And I feel good." The 25-year-old has been training hard in the offseason, and the ball was leaving his hand in a different way with more zip on his passes when he reported to mandatory minicamp. Jackson also worked with 3DQB throwing mechanics coach/trainer Adam Dedeaux this offseason. He finished last year on a disappointing note when he missed the final four games of the year due to an ankle injury, but Jackson is motivated to rebound and he has the talent to finish as a high-end QB1.

From RotoBaller

Jun 24 5:13pm ET

Dynasty | Ravens rookie tight end Isaiah Likely drew praise from Lamar Jackson and veterans for his minicamp performance Dynasty Analysis: Likely displayed sure hands and a rapport with Jackson during camp which had veterans talking. The 2022 fourth-round selection will now try to carry the momentum into training camp in July for a team who badly needs receivers to step up to fill the hole left by departed wide receiver Marquise Brown (ARI). As for Likely, he projects best as a 'move' player due to limited size but playing behind top option Mark Andrews will provide a long runway to add further strength, weight and development while waiting for greater snaps. Isaiah Likely is unranked on DLF's tight end rankings and is a compelling target to watch as training camp plays out.

From Dynasty League Fantasy

Jun 16 9:50pm ET

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson isn't ruling out a holdout. Both sides remain at a standstill regarding a new deal. Yet, when asked about the possibility of a holdout, the former MVP seemingly indicated there's a chance he may not be at training camp in July. Nevertheless, things could continue to get even messier moving ahead. However, if Jackson isn't on the field for part (or all) of the season, it isn't good news for J.K. Dobbins, Mark Andrews, or Rashod Bateman, who is expected to be the team's No. 1 wideout in 2022.

From RotoBaller

Jun 16 6:23pm ET

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson said his contract situation was not the reason he skipped the voluntary workouts this offseason. He said he talked with the team this week about his contract.

Fantasy Spin: The two sides do not appear to have made much progress in contract, but Jackson will be the Ravens starter for at least one more season. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Jun 16 4:30pm ET

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson, who said he's had contract talks with general manager Eric DeCosta this week, also said he'd like to finish his entire career with the Ravens. Jackson skipped voluntary organized team activities before joining the team for mandatory minicamp this week, but he said his absence at OTAs wasn't "contract-related." The 25-year-old wanted to "stay away" from offseason workouts after an injury filled 2021 season and "just grind." Despite disappointing due to an injury last season, Jackson remains a top-five QB1 target in fantasy drafts, and he could wind up as the overall QB1 when all is said and done if he stays healthy this year.

From RotoBaller

Jun 16 2:33pm ET

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson told reporters he weighs 220 pounds as of Thursday, June 16. Jackson noted that he typically plays somewhere between 205 and 208 pounds.

Fantasy Spin: Jackson is the kind of athlete who can probably get away with adding a few pounds, and it may be best for his longevity and durability if he can keep it. The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec opined earlier this month that he believes Baltimore will return to its run-heavy ways in 2022, which means Jackson might be in line for something approaching the career-high 176 carries he recorded in 2019. With that kind of rushing workload, he is a strong candidate to be the top quarterback in fantasy football this season.

From TheHuddle

Jun 13 2:50pm ET

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has joined the team in minicamp. Last week, head coach John Harbaugh mentioned that he expected Jackson at minicamp despite him missing OTA workouts. The 25-year-old still remains without an extension, but the team insists that a deal will get done. It's possible that the Ravens use multiple franchise tags on Jackson until the two sides can reach a deal in the future. Although, Jackson would almost certainly be upset with the organization, assuming they can't reach an extension. The expectation is that this contract situation will continue to linger into the regular season. For the moment, it sounds like Jackson is going to continue suiting up for Baltimore, but things could quickly change.

From RotoBaller

Jun 13 9:43am ET

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson reported to camp Monday, June 13.

Fantasy Spin: Jackson has the potential to be the best quarterback in fantasy, but he has regressed and has been exposed a bit as a passer. He'll be a midrange QB1 with upside.

From TheHuddle

Jun 12 2:20pm ET

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is expected to be in attendance for mandatory minicamp. Both Jackson and the organization remain caught up in long-term contract talks. Yet, with the former MVP anticipated to report for an organized team function, it appears the stalemate won't prevent him from suiting up this season, even if a new deal isn't reached. Jackson regressed statistically in 2021 by throwing 2,882 yards, 16 touchdowns, and a career-high 13 interceptions. He also missed five games due to injury. Still, he's considered one of the best fantasy options at the position, especially since he is so lethal on the run.
