Lamar Jackson Fantasy Outlook Includes Top-2 QB Upside
Lamar Jackson has been an elite fantasy producer ever since he became the Baltimore Ravens' starter. His historic 2019 campaign was the most productive fantasy season ever, and he was a top-10 QB across his 7 starts in 2018.
He should be in for another dominant season in 2020.
Lamar Jackson Fantasy Football Outlook
Jackson is coming off the board with an average draft position (ADP) of QB2, per FantasyPros. Patrick Mahomes is the only QB being drafted ahead of Jackson, and there's a pretty significant drop-off after that top two.
He scored 77.8 more fantasy points than the second-place QB Dak Prescott did in 2019. It's obviously hard to replicate a historically dominant year, but the Ravens' offense looks a lot like it did last season.
Stalwart offensive lineman Marshal Yanda has retired, but the addition of J.K. Dobbins and a healthy Marquise Brown could help offset most of that.
He might not reach the same heights he did last year, but it'd be a shock to see Jackson finish outside of the top-two QBs. We have him as QB2 in our 2020 rankings, going just five picks after Mahomes.
