Player Outlook
Even after a disappointing 2021 and losing speedster Marquise Brown, the Ravens quarterback remains a top five Fantasy quarterback. That's because Jackson will still burn defenses with his fleet feet, which he used last year to pick up nearly one-third of his total Fantasy production. With the Ravens expected to roll back to a run-balanced approach in 2022, that shouldn't change. Brown's departure is tough to swallow -- last year he made up 27% of Jackson's completions, 29% of his yards and 38% of his touchdowns. But with young wideouts Rashod Bateman and Devin Duvernay tabbed to help replace him, along with behemoth tight end Mark Andrews as the de facto No. 1 option and an improved offensive line, Jackson's passing numbers shouldn't fall off too badly. This will be the first time in three years some Fantasy managers will be shy to draft Jackson. Don't be -- as long as he's picked after Josh Allen, Patrick Mahomes and Justin Herbert, he's a good value. A favorable schedule outside of the AFC North definitely helps.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Not playing preseason opener

    Jackson will not play in the preseason opener against the Titans, Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun reports. It comes as no surprise that head coach John Harbaugh would hold the dynamic dual-threat quarterback out of the first preseason game, as he is likely trying to protect the engine behind the offense to avoid any risk of injury. Jackson's favorite target Mark Andrews will also miss the game among a handful of other veterans, leaving the second preseason game Aug. 21 against the Cardinals as the most likely 2022 debut for a number of key Ravens players.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Adds bulk in offseason

    Jackson reported to the Ravens' minicamp at 220 pounds after adding upwards of 15 pounds of muscle mass during the offseason. The added strength is notable for Jackson as a quarterback who relies heavily on his rushing ability to threaten defenses. He missed the final four games of the 2021 season due to an ankle injury suffered in Cleveland, and the added bulk could help Jackson hold up over the course of the 17-game season. Reports around camp also noted that his offseason work as a passer was also paying dividends, as his passes had more zip and his fundamentals looked more crisp. Jackson is heading into the final year of his rookie deal, but an extension could be on the table before the season gets underway.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Recovers from ankle injury

    Jackson's ankle has healed and he's resumed working out with teammates, Ryan Mink of the Ravens' official site reports. A bone bruise in his right ankle kept Jackson sidelined for the final four games of the 2021 campaign, but he should be in store for a normal, healthy offseason before the Ravens resume practicing in May and June. The bigger concern is a potential contract extension, with Jackson scheduled to make $23.1 million in 2022 under the fifth-year option on his rookie contract. A new deal won't be cheap from a real-money standpoint, but it may allow the Ravens to reduce Jackson's cap hit for the upcoming season, which in turn would help the team bring in reinforcements for its offensive line and defense.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Officially ruled out for Week 18

    Jackson (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Steelers. With Jackson still unavailable due to his ankle injury, Tyler Huntley has been confirmed as the Ravens' Week 18 starting QB, while Josh Johnson is set to serve as the team's No. 2 signal-caller Sunday.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Won't start Sunday

    Coach John Harbaugh announced Friday that Tyler Huntley will start Sunday's regular-season finale against the Steelers. Jackson (ankle) hasn't played since Week 14. Per Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun, Harbaugh didn't update Jackson's injury status, but given that the QB won't start Sunday's contest, it looks like the Ravens are likely to officially rule Jackson out once the team's final Week 18 injury report is posted.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Misses another practice

    Jackson (ankle) remained sidelined at practice Thursday, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports. As Hensley points out, Jackson only has practiced once in the past 25 days, so at this stage the QB's status for Sunday's game against the Steelers is cloudy. If Jackson remains sidelined this weekend, Tyler Huntley would be in line to start the Ravens' regular-season finale.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Not practicing

    Jackson (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday. Jackson's continued absence from practice isn't a great sign for his Week 18 availability, though head coach John Harbaugh said Monday that the quarterback still has a chance to make it back for Sunday's season finale against the Steelers. A return to practice Thursday or Friday would give the Ravens a chance to evaluate Jackson before making that decision, though there may also be some sentiment toward caution with Baltimore's long-shot playoff hopes riding on a Jacksonville upset of Indianapolis, among other things.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Chance to return in Week 18

    Coach John Harbaugh said Monday that Jackson (ankle) has a chance to play Sunday against Pittsburgh, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports. Harbaugh said that Jackson has been pushing to play recently, but he was forced to miss a third consecutive game in Sunday's loss to the Rams. The 24-year-old was limited in last Wednesday's practice before being kept off the field Thursday and Friday, and he'll likely need to log more practice time ahead of Week 18 if he hopes to return against the Steelers. If Jackson remains sidelined, Tyler Huntley would be in line for another start.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Missing third straight game

    Jackson (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Rams, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports. Jackson initially appeared to be trending toward a return from a two-game absence after he opened this week as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. Unfortunately, Jackson was limping badly during that session while battling the bone bruise in his right ankle, prompting the Ravens to hold him out of practices Thursday and Friday before listing him as questionable for the Week 17 game. Jackson didn't demonstrate enough progress heading into Sunday to get the green light to play, paving the way for Tyler Huntley to make his second start in three games and third overall of the season.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Week 17 status TBD

    Though the Ravens may elect to take a decision with Jackson (ankle) up to game-time, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network suggests that Tyler Huntley profiles as the likely starter for Sunday's game against the Rams. Jackson, who last suited up in Week 14, is officially listed as questionable after missing practice Thursday and Friday. Fortunately for those considering either of the Ravens' top two QBs in Week 17 fantasy lineups, the team kicks off at 1:00 ET on Sunday.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Officially questionable for Week 17

    Jackson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams after not practicing Thursday or Friday. Head coach John Harbaugh noted Friday that Jackson "has a chance to play" in the contest, but if that doesn't happen, Tyler Huntley, who came off the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, is available to fill in as the starting quarterback. Look for added context with regard to Jackson's Week 17 status to arrive late Saturday or early Sunday ahead of the game's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Could play Sunday, per Harbaugh

    Coach John Harbaugh noted Friday that Jackson (ankle) "has a chance to play on Sunday (against the Rams), we'll have to see." Harbaugh's words imply that Jackson, who didn't practice Thursday or Friday, is likely to be listed as questionable on the Ravens' final Week 17 injury report. If Jackson is unable to play this weekend, however, Tyler Huntley is available to fill in at QB now that he's off the reserve/COVID-19 list.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Not practicing Friday

    Jackson (ankle) wasn't spotted at Friday's practice, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports. While it remains to be seen how the Ravens will officially list Jackson on Friday's final injury report, Zrebiec suggests that at this stage Tyler Huntley seems likely to start at QB for Baltimore against the Rams on Sunday.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Not practicing Thursday

    Jackson (ankle) isn't practicing Thursday, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports. As Hensley notes, this comes a day after Jackson was limping badly during Wednesday's session. Now that he's off the reserve/COVID-19 list, Tyler Huntley is expected to handle the Ravens' first-team QB reps Thursday. In light of Jackson's absence, what he's able to do Friday will be telling with regard to his status for Sunday's game against the Rams, but now that Huntley is back in the mix, Baltimore's signal-caller situation is less taxed that this past weekend, when Josh Johnson drew a spot start and Kenji Bahar served as his backup.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Limping in return to practice

    Jackson (ankle) had a "pronounced limp" while practicing in a limited capacity Wednesday, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports. Hensley was one of at least three Baltimore beat reporters to mention the limp, with Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun adding that Jackson relied on his upper body rather than legs/trunk for arm strength. Meanwhile, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic notes that the quarterback didn't move much and limped when he did. None of that means Jackson won't make it back for Sunday's game against the Rams, but it at least suggests his mobility could be compromised to some degree if he plays. Meanwhile, No. 2 signal-caller Tyler Huntley is still on the reserve/COVID-19 list, leaving Week 16 starter Josh Johnson as the only healthy quarterback at Wednesday's practice.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Limited practice expected

    Jackson (ankle) is expected to practice in a limited fashion Wednesday, Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun reports. Jackson hasn't suited up since Week 14, but his return to practice has him trending in the right direction as Sunday's game against the Rams approaches. For now, Tyler Huntley (illness) remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list, so Week 16 starter Josh Johnson is the only signal-caller on the roster at full health as the Ravens begin preparations for their home game versus Los Angeles.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: May practice Wednesday

    Jackson (ankle) has a chance to practice Wednesday, Clifton Brown of the Ravens' official site reports. "I'm looking forward to that," coach John Harbaugh said Monday. Harbaugh expressed hope that all of Jackson, Tyler Huntley (illness) and Josh Johnson would be on the field to begin Week 17 prep. Jackson hasn't practiced at all since suffering a sprained right ankle Dec. 12 at Cleveland, while Huntley landed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday. That combination gave the journeyman Johnson a spot start this past Sunday in Cincinnati, and he took advantage of the opportunity by completing 28 of 40 passes for 304 yards, two touchdowns and one interception and rushing five times for 10 yards. How practice breaks down between the three will help determine who is likely to be under center versus the Rams, but a healthy Jackson would get the nod in any scenario.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Won't play Sunday

    Jackson (ankle) won't travel with the Ravens for Sunday's game against the Bengals. With Jackson unavailable and reports that Tyler Huntley is headed to the reserve/COVID-19 list, Josh Johnson is now poised to start at QB for the Ravens on Sunday.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Listed as questionable, not likely to start

    Jackson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals after not practicing this past week, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports. Per Zrebiec and Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL Network, at this stage Tyler Huntley -- who didn't practice Friday due to an illness and also is listed listed as questionable -- is expected to start at QB for the Ravens this weekend, assuming he's available. As Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com notes, Josh Johnson was the only available signal-caller at Friday's practice, and in the event that neither Jackson nor Huntley are out there for Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff, he'd be next in line for the Week 16 assignment.

  • Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Held out of practice

    Jackson (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports. Coach John Harbaugh said Monday that Jackson could resume practicing as soon as Wednesday. It didn't happen, of course, and Harbaugh didn't say much about the team's QB situation prior to Wednesday's practice. Furthermore, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic adds that Jackson may be dealing with a bone bruise, rather than just a lower-ankle sprain. That doesn't rule him out for the upcoming game against Cincinnati on Sunday, but it does suggest pain management/tolerance will be a consideration. Tyler Huntley will get another start if Jackson can't go.
