Longtime Ravens fan here. I thought Lamar Jackson had a very good debut as an all-around NFL QB. Here's why: With 5:45 seconds left in the third quarter, the Ravens were down by eight points afte

Guys, let's not get too crazy... the Bengals could have been taking a page from the Patriots model and simply letting Lamar Jackson run wild on them as to lure him into a false sense of security in ca

Gosh dang it, they pulled him early again! This guy is killing me.

I might start Cousins or even Tua over him this week. Crazy?

I mean, kinda. Lamar has a great match up. Tua has to deal with Belicheck and Cousins gets a solid Bears D that held Watson in check last week. I also have Cousins and I'm starting Lamar with zero hesitation.

I agree.  Could be a Ravens 3 RB game down so many WRs.  Deep TD gone now with Brown possibly out.  Need the Jaguars to score some offensively.

Lamar Jackson completed 17-of-22 for 243 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in the Ravens' 40-14 Week 15 win over the Jaguars, adding ten rushes for 35 yards and a touchdown. 

The Ravens did anything they wanted against a depleted Jacksonville defense. Jackson's statistical day could have been even better if he hadn't been removed from the game a few minutes into the fourth quarter with the Ravens leading 40-7. He also had a rushing score taken off the board at the end of the first quarter. Jackson was aggressive from the start, attacking the Jags downfield with shots to Mark Andrews and Marquise Brown. Jackson's strong season-closing run should continue next week against the Giants.

Lamar Jackson completed 17-of-26 passes for 186 yards and two touchdowns in the Ravens' 27-13 Week 16 win against the Giants, adding 12 rushes for 81 yards. 

It was yet another double-digit rushing attempt performance from Jackson, who had a few potentially long runs stopped by shoestring tackles. Jackson again found Marquise Brown and Dez Bryant for touchdowns against a vulnerable Giants secondary. The Ravens moved the ball at will against the zone-heavy Giants, who refused to switch to man defense even as Baltimore had chunk play after chunk play. Jackson gets another favorable matchup in Week 17 against the Bengals.

Lamar Jackson completed 10-of-18 passes for 113 yards and three touchdowns in the Ravens 38-3 Week 17 win over the Bengals, adding 11 rushes for 97 yards. 

Jackson's passing day would've been better if not for a breathtaking dropped pass from Marquise Brown on a first quarter deep ball. Jackson did anything he wanted against the toothless Cincy defense, taking most read-options himself and piling up rushing yardage throughout his three quarters of action. He was rested in the fourth quarter. He finishes the regular season with over 1,000 rushing yards despite missing a game. Jackson and the Baltimore offense have progressed dramatically over the past month. Jackson will enter the NFL playoffs looking to avenge stunning defeats in his past two postseason appearances.

Lamar Jackson completed 17-of-24 pass attempts for 179 yards and an interception in the Ravens' Wild Card win over the Titans, adding 16 carries for 136 yards and a touchdown.

Jackson opened the game with a duck on a deep attempt that was intercepted and things began to look like a repeat of his previous two meetings with the Titans, both of which Baltimore lost. He tightened up his passing but it was his rushing output that won the Ravens this game. Jackson got the Ravens their first score of the day with a 48-yard rushing touchdown. He also added carries for 23 and 33 yards in the second half. It may not have been his best performance through the air but it didn't have to be with the way he was blowing by defenders on the ground. The Ravens will move on to face either the Bills or the Chiefs in the Divisional Round. Jackson remains an elite DFS option for next week.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Ravens are expected to explore a contract extension for Lamar Jackson this offseason.

Jackson has one year left on his rookie deal but the Ravens will make the easy decision to pick up his fifth-year option. Baltimore has a history of extending players early and a deal could get done sometime before next year's training camp. Currently without an agent, it's not clear if Jackson plans to represent himself in contract talks. Jackson had a down 2020 but is going to command top-five quarterback money.

Lamar Jackson (concussion) has been ruled out for the remainder of the Ravens' Divisional Round game against the Bills.

Jackson followed an NFL-leading 36-touchdown season in 2019 with 26 in 2020 across 15 games. The Ravens offense was very inconsistent, partially because of Jackson's iffy accuracy and partially because of Baltimore's bottom-five receiver depth chart. Jackson's 7.3 yards per attempt average is enough for this offense to be potent through the air if Baltimore can bring in another pass-catcher this offseason. As a rusher, Jackson remains in a tier of his own. He had 1,005 rushing yards and seven scores on 159 carries (6.3 YPC). Jackson needs more around him for the Ravens to reach the Super Bowl, but he's a locked-in top-five fantasy quarterback regardless. The Ravens will be picking up his fifth-year option this offseason. Hopefully they give Allen Robinson a phone call, too.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said he's "totally certain" the Ravens will sign Lamar Jackson to a long-term extension.

“Eric [DeCosta] and I have talked about that and other contracts, so I’m very confident that Eric and those guys will do a great job,” Harbaugh said. “Absolutely, we want Lamar to sign a long-term deal and be with us. I’m totally certain that’s going to happen. When it happens, that’s the details. That’s what we’ve got to figure out.” Harbaugh was commenting on a report that the Ravens plan to explore an extension for Jackson this offseason. Baltimore is a lock to pick up Jackson's fifth-year option in May.  There's optimism the sides can reach a long-term deal before next year's training camp.

Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta said the team could sign Lamar Jackson to a contract extension this offseason. 

This should (temporarily) quiet the L-Jax skeptics who have been critical of his passing acumen in recent months after his completion rate dipped and his otherworldly 2019 adjusted yards per attempt of 8.9 fell to 7.6 in 2020. The team is 34-12 in Jackson's starts over the past three seasons on the strength of an efficient offense predicated on dominating opponents on the ground. It's crystal clear that the Ravens are committed to Jackson, who, at 24, might already be the best dual threat quarterback in league history. He has 2,906 rushing yards over his 46 NFL games, or 63.17 yards per contest. The team will need to improve their wide receiver group and make the offense far less predictable in 2021 if Jackson is going to make the leap as a passer. He would become an unrestricted free agent in 2023 if the Ravens can't come to terms on a long-term deal.

Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta said he was happy with how the team's wideouts played in 2020. 

In a wide-ranging interview with reporters Monday morning, DeCosta said he's not singularly focused on bolstering the receiver position this offseason. “We have a running attack that’s the best in football and probably the best in the history of football," DeCosta said when asked about adding pieces to a Baltimore passing offense that struggled throughout 2020. DeCosta said he was "very happy" with rookie wideouts Devin Duvernay and James Proche, and called Marquise Brown a "legitimate playmaker." "Everybody is going to talk about WRs a lot this offseason, but it doesn't sound like [DeCosta] envisions some silver bullet 'fix' there," Ryan Mink, the team's editorial director, said on Twitter. The Ravens would figure to be in the running to sign free agent wideouts like Kenny Golladay, Chris Godwin, and Allen Robinson, but it sounds like DeCosta isn't committed to pouring resources into the team's passing attack. Any free agent receiver addition would be an iffy bet for fantasy purposes in the Ravens' low-volume passing offense.
