  Ravens | Lamar Jackson did sustain concussion    Sun Jan 17, 09:03 AM

Confirming previous reports, Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (concussion) did suffer a concussion near the end of the third quarter of the AFC Divisional Round game against the Buffalo Bills, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Footballguys view: Jackson was banged up against the Bills and on the play he was concussed it spelled disaster for the Ravens. He got his first playoff win in the Wild Card Round, and the Ravens had quite a few chances to win against the Bills but did not take advantage.

  Ravens | Lamar Jackson in line for extension    Sat Jan 16, 01:24 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson is expected to have his fifth-year option picked up by the team this offseason, and the two sides are then expected to look at working out a 'big-time' contract extension this summer.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Jackson is a franchise quarterback and won the first playoff game of his career last week in the Wild Card Round. The team can build around him for years to come, and he'll be compensated as one of the highest-paid quarterbacks in the league when his extension is done.

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (thumb) wore a glove in the wild-card game against the Tennessee Titans Sunday, Jan. 10, but said Tuesday, Jan. 12, he's good to go.

Footballguys view: A jammed thumb comes down to comfort level. 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. He'll be good to go against the Bills in the Divisional Round.

  Ravens | Baltimore moves on to Divisional Round    Sun Jan 10, 04:13 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson went 17-for-24 for 179 yards, zero touchdowns and one interception against the Tennessee Titans in the Wild Card playoff game. He also rushed for 136 yards and one touchdown on 16 carries during the game. RB J.K. Dobbins rushed for 43 yards and one touchdown on nine carries, while RB Gus Edwards rushed for 38 yards on eight carries. WR Marquise Brown caught seven passes for 109 yards on nine targets, and TE Mark Andrews caught four passes for 41 yards on six targets.

Footballguys view: Jackson wins the first game of his pro career by doing what he does best. In years past, Jackson seemed to press in the postseason. On Sunday, Jackson played within himself and within the structure of the offense. He looked good and if he continues to play like this the Ravens are going to be a tough out in the postseason.

WR Marquise Brown caught five passes for 41 yards and two touchdowns on eight targets.

Footballguys view: Jackson did not disappoint in Week 17 DFS lineups. He'll face the AFC South winner next week as the Ravens will have less pressure on them than they did last year when they lost to the Titans in the divisional round.

Footballguys view: Jackson is certainly out for any Week 12 game and the Week 13 Ravens game is currently scheduled for Thursday. That is likely to change so between Jackson's covid and the Ravens fluid schedule, we can't say how many games he will miss. Robert Griffin III would start for any games that Jackson is out.

  Ravens | Lamar Jackson throws two TDs    Sun Oct 11, 05:07 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson went 19-for-37 for 180 yards, two touchdowns and one interception against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 5. He only rushed for three yards on two carries during the game.

Footballguys view: Jackson was off as a passer in this one and there's a clear feeling that he hasn't come close to his 2019 level of play yet this year. He has been a major fantasy disappointment, but in part because the Ravens have had four wins where they were barely challenged and could take the foot off of the gas in the second half. Jackson gets the Eagles next week and should still be in lineups.

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (knee) is expected to play in Week 5 on Sunday, Oct. 11.

Footballguys view: Fantasy GMs can breathe a bit of a sigh of relief here. The Ravens play against the Bengals and should have an easy time against that defense.

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson went 14-for-21 for 193 yards, two touchdowns and one interception against the Washington Football Team in Week 4. He also rushed for 53 yards and one touchdown on seven carries.

Footballguys view: Jackson's 25-30 point games are ho-hum affairs. He missed some throws and the Ravens were never seriously challenged, so he didn't have to press the issue in the run or pass game. A long score on the ground and two touchdown hookups with Mark Andrews was more than enough. He'll face a vulnerable Bengals defense after a disappointing first four games.

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Sunday, Aug. 23, because of a soft tissue injury, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Footballguys view: This probably shouldn't change your overall ranking of Jackson - if you were targeting him in the second round because you believe he'll be worth close to as much as he was last year, then this small added risk doesn't make that upside any less attractive. We just want to see Jackson practice in full before the opener vs Cleveland.

  Ravens | Lamar Jackson wants Antonio Brown on team    Wed Jul 29, 03:26 PM

Free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Patriots) worked out with Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson this offseason, and Jackson said he still hopes the Ravens sign Brown.

Footballguys view: Brown is waiting for the league to make a decision on his playing status. He vacillates between wanting to play and retiring seemingly every week or so. We think Brown plays, perhaps for the Ravens (or Seahawks), once the league gives the green light.

  Ravens | Lamar Jackson exceptionally elusive    Tue Jul 14, 08:04 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson led the league with 47 carries in which he ran at least five yards before getting contacted in 2019, according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: Jackson had a lot of opportunities to decide when he would run and he chose well. He also possesses as much natural speed and elusiveness as any quarterback since Michael Vick. The offensive line lost possible Hall of Famer Marshal Yanda but otherwise the offense should be even better this year.

  Ravens | Lamar Jackson focused on silencing critics    Wed Jul 1, 12:33 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson has his mind set on winning a playoff game in an effort to silence remaining critics following his MVP 2019 campaign. 'I need to win a playoff game before anything because I'm tired of that already,' Jackson said. 'Once I get tired of something, I have to make it happen. So, that's my goal right now; focus on being a better player all around. Not just a (better) player, but teammate as well.'

Footballguys view: The critics are still there for Jackson, mainly because of his lack of postseason success. We'll see the Ravens run through the regular season once again and they should win the AFC North title in 2020. Then, Jackson will have to work his magic in the playoffs to see if he can get the Ravens to the Super Bowl.
