The 2019 version of Lamar Jackson was back in action last week during a thrilling Monday night win over the Browns to keep the Ravens’ playoff hopes alive. Jackson threw for 163 yards and a touchdown, and he had his best game on the ground all season with 124 rushing yards on nine attempts with two scores. He’s got a great matchup this week against the Jaguars, and should be in your fantasy football lineups.
Fantasy Football analysis: Ravens QB Lamar Jackson
The dramatics of the win got every talking about Jackson looking like his old self, but he was actually back on track the week before that too. In a game against the Cowboys, Baltimore’s quarterback threw a pair of touchdowns and ran for 94 yards and another score on 13 carries. That’s two games in a row with three touchdowns now. He’s getting hot at exactly the right time to help both the Ravens and your fantasy hopes.
Jacksonville’s given up at least two passing touchdowns to opposing quarterbacks in all but two of their games this season. There is nothing about this Jaguars team to suggest that Lamar Jackson can’t have his third big game in a row. He’s back to QB1 status.
