21-Year-Old QuarterbackQB
Baltimore Ravens
2018 Fantasy Outlook
The Ravens traded up to draft Jackson, the 2016 Heisman winner, with the last pick of the first round. The plan is to develop him behind Joe Flacco this year, but the 33-year-old is coming off a horribly inefficient season and if he doesn't rebound quickly the team could turn to its new QB. At 6-2, 216, Jackson's size and speed allow him to create explosive plays with his arm and legs, but his accuracy needs work, as does his ability to throw on the run. He completed less than 60 percent of his passes each season at Louisville, but did improve year-over-year from 54.7 percent to 56.2 percent to 59.1 percent, without getting much help from his supporting cast. Jackson was a one-man show for the Cardinals, piling up 4,132 rushing yards, 50 rushing TDs and 69 passing TDs in 38 games, with 8.3 YPA and 6.3 YPC. Regardless of how things shake out this year, the Ravens likely will grab the salary cap savings next offseason and replace Flacco with the dynamic Jackson. Read Past Outlooks

Thrives on ground again in win
QBBaltimore Ravens
December 16, 2018
Jackson completed 14 of 23 passes for 131 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions in the Ravens' 20-12 win over the Buccaneers on Sunday. He also rushed 18 times for 95 yards and lost a fumble.
ANALYSIS
It was a trademark Jackson line, one that was light on passing yards but reflected superior ground production. The rookie's fumble at the Buccaneers' 43-yard line late in the first quarter was a costly one, however, as it eventually led to Tampa's only touchdown of the day. Jackson did make up for his miscue with mistake-free football the rest of the way, and he continued to pile up production with his legs, checking in only nine yards behind team leader Gus Edwards in rushing. Jackson continues to do enough to hold on to the starting job even with Joe Flacco (hip) now healthy, so he's expected to remain under center for a tough Week 16 road tilt against the Chargers.
