22-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

Working with new OC Roman
QBBaltimore Ravens
February 20, 2019
Ravens offensive coordinator Greg Roman believes Jackson is gifted in terms of vision and instincts but still has work to do when it comes to passing fundamentals, ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley reports. "I think fundamentally is where [Jackson]'s going to need to put most of his work," Roman said. "I think where to throw the ball and seeing guys open, I think those are things that he naturally has."
ANALYSIS
Roman was promoted within the organization to replace Marty Mornhinweg, who led the successful transition to an offense based around read-option runs after Jackson replaced Joe Flacco at quarterback. The Ravens believe Roman can build on that success with the help of more sophisticated run designs, as his offenses finished eighth, fourth, third, fourth and first in the NFL for rushing yards in his five full seasons as a coordinator, per Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic. Roman is best known for his work with Colin Kaepernick and Tyrod Taylor -- mobile quarterbacks who became efficient passers in run-heavy offenses. The Ravens envision the same thing for Jackson, though he may have a difficult learning curve ahead while Roman installs new terminology and plays. The team could use an upgrade at wide receiver, where John Brown is set to become an unrestricted free agent and Michael Crabtree is in danger of being released after a lackluster 2018 campaign. Veteran slot receiver Willie Snead and 22-year-old tight end Mark Andrews are the only locks for significant target volume in 2019.
