Lamar Jackson, QB, Baltimore Ravens
Jackson left Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons with an apparent concussion, but was eventually cleared and finished the contest. He’s still not lighting it up through the air, as went 12-for-21 for 125 yards on Sunday, but he had rushing touchdown for the second straight game and has topped 70 yards on the ground in all three of his starts.
A favorable stretch continues for Jackson in Week 14, as the Kansas City Chiefs entered Week 13 allowing the fifth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks (ESPN scoring) with the most pass attempts against. Then Week 15 brings the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who entered Week 13 allowing the third-most fantasy points to opposing signal callers (ESPN scoring).
Joe Flacco (hip) may be able to return against the Chiefs, and there’s been some hint of a timeshare when he was able to play again. But there’s no doubt who the better Ravens’ quarterback is for fantasy owners, and Jackson is still a solid waiver wire add.
