Lamar Jackson only threw for 143 yards on an ugly 9-of-20 passing in Week 7 against the Seattle Seahawks. He more than made up for those struggles through the air by putting up another elite rushing line though, carrying the ball 14 times for 116 yards and one TD.

Lamar Jackson Fantasy Points

Jackson finished Week 7 with 23.3 fantasy points, notching 17.6 of those on the ground compared to only 5.7 through the air. That ability to rack up huge production on the ground has given Jackson a total of 175.6 fantasy points on the year, ranking first among all players in standard scoring leagues.

It's not just big overall production that has made the sophomore such a valuable fantasy asset this season, either. He's been incredibly consistent, topping 20 fantasy points in six of his seven games, with a median score of 24.5.

Fantasy players counting on Jackson will fall on hard times for the next couple of weeks, though. The QB1 gets his bye week in Week 8, and returns in Week 9 with a nightmare matchup against the New England Patriots, who have allowed the fewest fantasy points per game to opposing QBs of any team this season. Once he clears that rough two-week stretch we can count on Jackson bouncing back in a big way against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 10.
