What to do with Lamar Jackson in the Divisional round of the 2021 NFL playoffs

We go over the fantasy football and DFS outlook of Lamar Jackson ahead of the Ravens Divisional round matchup against the Bills in the 2021 NFL Playoffs.

Is Lamar Jackson or Josh Allen the better QB?

This is a great week to start Lamar Jackson. Okay, sure, it’s almost always a good time to have the Baltimore Ravens quarterback in your fantasy lineup, but he has one of the most favorable matchups of any quarterback in this weekend’s Divisional round games. Let’s take a closer look at what to expect against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Football analysis: Ravens QB Lamar Jackson, $7,600

Jackson put the Ravens on the board last week with a 48-yard touchdown run. That was one of 16 carries he had against the Titans last week, and he finished with 136 rushing yards, almost as many yards as he had through the air.

The Bills gave up 309 passing yards and a pair of touchdowns to Philip Rivers and the Colts last week in their Wild Card game. With Buffalo likely keyed on trying to contain Jackson on the ground, he should be able to improve on his passing numbers from last week.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Jackson’s the second-most expensive QB on the board in DraftKings leagues this week. But I think he’s a great stack with his tight end, Mark Andrews, against the Bills. This figures to be a high-scoring affair, making Jackson a solid start in any fantasy format.
