It's not often you see two former Heisman-winning quarterbacks battling for a starting quarterback spot, but that's exactly what the Baltimore Ravens have on their hands this week.


Backup quarterbacks Lamar Jackson and Robert Griffin III have been vying for the Week 11 starting role with Joe Flacco out with a hip injury. 


Jackson has reportedly gained the upper hand between himself and the other former first-round, dual-threat quarterback on the roster in Griffin. 

It's always an exciting thought for fantasy owners to have a dual-threat stud like Jackson with the ability to run or throw touchdowns, but just remember there's a reason why he hasn't gotten a start yet this season. Jackson likely needs more time to develop before he becomes anything more than a streaming option for fantasy purposes this season. But with the kind of talent he brings to the field, you truly never know when he'll take that next step.

The first step will be for him to officially be named the Ravens' starting quarterback for Sunday's Week 11 contest.
