Lamar Jackson
23-Year-Old QuarterbackQB
Baltimore Ravens
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Jackson ended the Joe Flacco era in Baltimore in Week 11 last year, starting for the injured veteran and never letting him back on the field. As expected, Jackson was dynamite as a runner, topping 65 yards on the ground in six of seven starts. Also as expected, Jackson struggled in the passing game, with his 58.2 completion percentage ranking 35th among 38 quarterbacks with at least 150 attempts. What's more, he rarely challenged defenses deep - just 13 passes longer than 20 yards, including only five completions. His 24.7 bad pass percentage was third highest in the NFL, and he reached 200 passing yards just once. Still, a run-heavy attack - a leage-high 63.7 rushing percentage Weeks 11-17 ­- helped Baltimore win six of its last seven games to reach the playoffs. An aggressive running game will be the basis of the offense again this season, perhaps even more so with former running game coordinator Greg Roman promoted to offensive coordinator. That will help prop up Jackson's fantasy stats, but a heavy workload on the ground also exposes him to injury, and he fumbled 12 times last year (losing four). Even modest improvements in passing efficiency will go a long way for the fantasy prospects of Jackson, the first QB since Michael Vick capable of a 1,000-yard rushing season. Jackson's limited passing success last year came on throws to tight end Mark Andrews, who is now joined by rookie wideouts Marquise Brown (first round) and Miles Boykin (third round), along with veteran tailback Mark Ingram. There are more growing pains to come for the Baltimore passing game, but Jackson at least will have better athletes around him this year in his first shot as a Week 1 starter. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
Jackson was the runaway choice for league MVP, as he put together a fabulous sophomore season to lead the Ravens to a league-best 14-2 record. While things didn't go his way in the postseason, the electrifying athlete proved to be elite as both a passer and a runner, posting a 36:6 TD:INT through the air while setting a new record for rushing yards by a quarterback with 1,206 and adding seven touchdowns on the ground.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
The Ravens traded up to draft Jackson, the 2016 Heisman winner, with the last pick of the first round. The plan is to develop him behind Joe Flacco this year, but the 33-year-old is coming off a horribly inefficient season and if he doesn't rebound quickly the team could turn to its new QB. At 6-2, 216, Jackson's size and speed allow him to create explosive plays with his arm and legs, but his accuracy needs work, as does his ability to throw on the run. He completed less than 60 percent of his passes each season at Louisville, but did improve year-over-year from 54.7 percent to 56.2 percent to 59.1 percent, without getting much help from his supporting cast. Jackson was a one-man show for the Cardinals, piling up 4,132 rushing yards, 50 rushing TDs and 69 passing TDs in 38 games, with 8.3 YPA and 6.3 YPC. Regardless of how things shake out this year, the Ravens likely will grab the salary cap savings next offseason and replace Flacco with the dynamic Jackson.
