Lamar Jackson, QB, Baltimore Ravens
Jackson struggled through the air again on Sunday, going 14-for-25 for 178 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions against the Oakland Raiders, but he added 11 carries for 71 yards and another score to push himself over 20 fantasy points on the day. He has at least 16.9 fantasy points (Yahoo! scoring; four points per passing touchdown) in both of his starts, and going forward the schedule shapes up nice.
In Week 13 Jackson gets the Atlanta Falcons, who are a bottom-five team against quarterbacks and have allowed three or more passing touchdowns in seven of 11 games this season. Then two more bottom-five fantasy defenses against quarterbacks are coming, with the Kansas City Chiefs (Week 14) and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Week 15) on the slate.
Joe Flacco is expected to practice next week, but any trepidation attached to his returning from a hip injury and taking back the starting job from Jackson should be mostly set aside now. Jackson has an increasing chance to keep the starting job, and he should be owned in nearly 100 percent of leagues by this time next week.
