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
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.

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.

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.

From RotoBaller

Jun 8 4:53pm ET

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson should participate in the mandatory minicamp next week, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Fantasy Spin: Jackson has skipped some voluntary workouts this offseason, and his contract situation is still an issue. Fantasy players can monitor the situation next week, but he likely will report for the practices. He has been a good fantasy option since entering the NFL and can be a No. 1 quarterback in most leagues.

From TheHuddle

Jun 8 4:00pm ET

Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said he expects quarterback Lamar Jackson to be in attendance for mandatory minicamp next week. "I know he's working hard. Lamar Jackson is a hard worker, so I'm not worried about how hard he's working. I fully expect him to come back in great shape," Harbaugh said. Jackson didn't show up to voluntary organized team activities while working on his own on his mechanics. The 25-year-old is entering the final year of his rookie deal and while the two sides are expected to get something done eventually, there hasn't been much urgency in that regard this offseason. The two-time Pro Bowler missed five games due to injury last year and finished with 2,882 passing yards, 16 touchdowns and a career-high 13 interceptions while rushing for 767 yards and two touchdowns on 133 carries. With better health, he should rebound as a high-end QB1 for fantasy managers in 2022.

From RotoBaller

Jun 8 2:23pm ET

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson is expected to attend mandatory minicamp after sitting out voluntary organized team activities, head coach John Harbaugh said on Wednesday, June 8. Harbaugh also noted Jackson has been working hard while away from the team.

Fantasy Spin: Until Jackson starts missing the mandatory portion of the team's offseason program, there's nothing to worry about here. Jackson enters 2022 as a QB1.

From TheHuddle

Jun 2 12:33pm ET

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson will have some new things to learn that offensive coordinator Greg Roman added whenever he reports to camp. 'I went back and changed some things and added some things,' Roman said. 'There's definitely some things that are new, that we haven't done. There are also a bunch of things that he's pretty well adjusted to. It's probably 80 percent stuff he knows, 20 percent stuff that we're looking forward to working on.'

Fantasy Spin: Jackson will be at least a midrange QB1 in fantasy with the potential to be the best on the board. Health and his evolution as a passer will dictate which side of the coin he's on.

From TheHuddle

May 28 2:13pm ET

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson downplayed his absence from voluntary organized team activities in the wake of criticism but also noted he 'will be there.'

From TheHuddle

May 27 4:33pm ET

Following the trade of receiver Marquise Brown (ARI), sophomore receiver Rashod Bateman is ready to be the team's WR1 Dynasty Analysis: Bateman got off to a slow start, sidelined by core muscle surgery to begin the season. Making his career debut on Oct. 17th, the first-round selection managed to snag at least one reception in all but a single game, finishing his rookie campaign with a 46/515/1 stat line, including a single 100-yard game against the Browns. Now with Brown out of the loop, Bateman is the unquestioned WR1 in the offense, playing across underwhelming options Devin Duvernay and James Proche. In an offense which clearly runs through Lamar Jackson's capable legs, Bateman may struggle to find consistent production in 2022, but should easily lead all receivers not named Mark Andrews in receptions and yardage. He's listed as DLF's WR22 and may carry a premium given the team's struggles with receiver production in recent years.

From Dynasty League Fantasy

May 25 1:23pm ET

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson was not present for voluntary organized team activities on Wednesday, May 25.

From TheHuddle

May 23 10:20am ET

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has chosen to stay away from the team's offseason workout program, and the Ravens have expressed enthusiasm about the work he's done this offseason in training with quarterback mechanic expert Adam Dedeaux. Baltimore has yet to publicly express concern that Jackson, who is currently set to play under the fifth-year option on his rookie deal, will hold out. It remains to be seen if he'll show up to organized team activities this week, and if Jackson is a no-show, it will certainly bring more attention to his contract status. The Ravens would much rather have Jackson on the field throwing to his young receivers, but even if he isn't present this week, he'll still be regarded as a high-end QB1 target looking to rebound from a down year in 2021.

From RotoBaller

May 20 7:13pm ET

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson appears unlikely to agree to a long-term extension this offseason, in the opinion of CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora.

Fantasy Spin: Jackson and the Ravens have been talking for a while, but it is not known how much progress they have made in the talks. He will be the Ravens quarterback for at least one more season and can be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback despite the losses at receiver.

From TheHuddle

May 18 11:20pm ET

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson remains in limbo regarding a new deal. The former MVP, who's slated to make over $23 million this year, may delay signing a new contract to receive a heftier salary down the line. If that's the case, Baltimore is then expected to utilize the franchise tag over the following season or two to keep him on the roster. Jackson's productivity declined during 2021, and he finished by racking up 2,882 passing yards, 767 rushing yards, 18 total touchdowns, and a career-high 13 interceptions. He did miss some time due to injury, so as long as he can remain healthy, he has the potential to run his way back into fantasy prominence, even without Marquise Brown on the roster. Nevertheless, more is likely to come surrounding this situation, although it shouldn't keep him from suiting up during the 2022-23 campaign.

From RotoBaller

May 11 10:03pm ET

Baltimore Ravens WR Devin Duvernay caught 70 percent (21-of-30) of his passes from QB Lamar Jackson last season, the highest rate on the team for players with 10 or more targets.

Fantasy Spin: The unexpected trade of Marquise Brown opens the door for Duvernay to be the unquestioned No. 3 option behind Mark Andrews and Rashod Bateman. His ceiling remains to be seen, but Duvernay is worth grabbing as a WR4 or WR5.
