Fantasy Football Quarterback no. 3: Lamar Jackson, Baltimore Ravens

Fantasy football is easy – more points equate to more wins. Drafting players who can produce in multiple categories add depth to the roster. Quarterbacks like Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers destroy defenses in the pocket. Lamar Jackson makes plays from sideline to sideline.

Scoring fantasy points come naturally for the Ravens’ elusive QB. His elusiveness and speed allow him to rack up yards in the air and on the ground. Poor performance at the quarterback position last season did not hinder No.8 from producing exceptional fantasy stats. His 252.98 points throughout 12 games ranked him 7th in points scored by quarterbacks.

The idea of drafting Jackson could rub a few fantasy owners wrong. His stat line at the end of the 2021 season did not leave a good impression of what he could offer this season. Expecting No.8 to have consecutive lackluster seasons is outlandish, considering his track record. His 36-touchdown season in 2019 was only a glimpse of what Jackson can do when confident on the field.

Drafting the right quarterback is an essential part of building a fantasy roster. Relying on the skills of Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers to carry a team to the post-season is harder than they believe. Finding players who can add depth to your roster will ensure success for the upcoming season.
