Summary

For the first time since 2007, Baltimore's offense will not be led by Joe Flacco. Jackson cracked the starting lineup last season due to a Flacco injury and led the team on a winning streak that resulted in the AFC North title. Much more athlete than pure passer, Jackson's dynamic playmaking seemed to surprise many of his early opponents. Baltimore is hopeful that a full offseason with starter's reps will lead to maturity in that department for Jackson to the point that he can be multi-dimensional for a full season. This will remain a run-focused offense, though, with Jackson playing a key part in that identity as well. Jackson's skill set isn't the only reason the team will remain run-heavy. Their lack of experience at the wide receiver position speaks volumes. The team's likely starters are both rookies. Jackson's rushing ability will still be the origin of much of his production.

Ravens | Lamar Jackson advised to slide more (Fri Aug 16, 12:33 PM) - Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson chatted with Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers after the teams' preseason game Thursday, Aug. 15. 'Have a great season, man,' Rodgers said at the end of the conversation. 'Slide a little bit.'

Ravens | Decent showing for Lamar Jackson (Thu Aug 15, 10:42 PM) - Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson completed six of his 10 pass attempts for 58 yards and rushed twice for 14 yards in a 26-13 preseason win over the Green Bay Packers Thursday, Aug. 15.

Our View: Jackson had one run that was Michael Vick-esque with elusiveness and speed. He should be rising up draft boards with an easy early schedule of Miami, Arizona and Kansas City.

Ravens | Lamar Jackson: Offense under wraps (Fri Aug 9, 12:39 PM) - Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson says the offense the team ran Thursday, Aug. 8, in its 29-0 preseason win over the Jacksonville Jaguars won't resemble the attack the Ravens will display come the regular season. '(They're) not close at all,' Jackson said. 'We ran like a couple plays a lot. We really didn't show anything at all. It's going to be fun to watch though.'

Our View: Jackson will be a great Week 1 DFS start against a Miami defense that is overmatched and probably won't be prepared for what they see. He also gets Arizona and Kansas City the next two weeks after that, making him an excellent QB1 to start the season if you wait on the position.
