Who is Lamar Jackson’s backup for fantasy football

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson is dealing with an illness and is uncertain for Week 11. We break down what the backup options are heading into Week 11 for fantasy football.

NFL Chase or Fade: Is Carson Wentz going to carve up the Buffalo Bills defense?

Game status: Lamar Jackson is INACTIVE for Week 11.

UPDATE: Josina Anderson is reporting Jackson is “not doing well enough to play.”

Baltimore starting quarterback Lamar Jackson is arriving to Solider Field soon, but does not sound like himself, per Stacy Dales. Jackson will try to play today against the Bears and the Ravens are working to keep him hydrated, per Ian Rapoport. However, he’s been hit hard by this virus, which could mean that Tyler Huntley will get the start.

Huntley has been a part of Baltimore’s quarterback room for the last two seasons. The 23-year-old quarterback out of Utah was signed as an undrafted free agent after the 2020 NFL Draft. He did not play much in his rookie season, but had to step in for Jackson in last year’s playoff game against the Buffalo Bills. The 6-foot-1 quarterback completed 6-of-13 passes for 60 yards and had 32 yards on the ground.

This season, Huntley entered as the Ravens’ backup quarterback after putting together a solid preseason. He saw a few snaps in the Ravens’ blowout loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 7. Huntley completed 5-of-11 passes for 39 yards.
