It has not been a great season for Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson. The offense is struggling, thanks in no small part to offensive line problems, and his fantasy football production levels have dropped way off from what they were last year when he was one of the leading scorers in almost every fantasy format. Can he rebound this week against the Patriots?
Fantasy Football analysis: Ravens QB Lamar Jackson
The Ravens got the win last week, thanks in part to Jackson’s rushing touchdown, his only score of the day. But the Colts, like so many other teams, have figured out how to bottle up Jackson this season. He’s fumbling more, throwing more interceptions, and rushing for an average of under 60 yards per game, more than 20 yards off his mark from last season. And in eight games, he’s had multiple touchdowns in five of them.
The good new this week is that the Patriots are pretty mediocre against opposing quarterbacks. Joe Flacco with the Jets threw three touchdowns against them last week. They had Josh Allen’s number two weeks ago, but the Bills QB at least managed one rushing score. Jackson should have an okay week.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Lamar Jackson.
