The Baltimore Ravens head into their final game of the regular season needing a win to secure their spot in the playoffs. Fortunately, for them, quarterback Lamar Jackson is on fire lately, helping lead his team to four straight wins. The Ravens take on the Cincinnati Bengals this week, and it should be another solid day for Jackson and his fantasy football output.

Fantasy Football analysis: Ravens QB Lamar Jackson

Jackson has 12 touchdowns over the last four games, eight passing and four rushing scores. Last week against the Giants, he threw a pair of scores with 183 yards, adding another 80 yards on the ground with 13 rushes.

Despite getting the win last week over the Texans, the Bengals gave up 324 passing yards and three touchdowns to Deshaun Watson. And while they have been playing better overall, it shouldn’t be any problem for Jackson to put up numbers in a must-win game for his team.
