With the Baltimore Ravens pushing for a playoff spot, Lamar Jackson has become a top fantasy play in each of the past three weeks. He looks to continue that trend against the New York Giants in Week 16.

Fantasy Football analysis: Ravens QB Lamar Jackson

Jackson has gotten back to his more well-known form of play the past three weeks, as the Ravens have won three straight games. He’s scored at least three touchdowns in each game and has averaged 29.94 fantasy points per-game in the span. Though he’s been held to under 175 passing yards in two of those games and has just a high of 243 yards through the air, Jackson has rushed for four scores and thrown for six while throwing two interceptions since Week 13.

The Giants come into the game fifth-best against opposing quarterbacks, allowing just 16.16 points per-game to them. But in their last two games against Kyler Murray and Baker Mayfield, both came to average 19.72 against the Giants. With Jackson and the Ravens in the playoff hunt, I’d expect to see more of the same that we’ve gotten from him the past three weeks.
