Lamar Jackson: Stock up
Lamar Jackson was the best Fantasy Football quarterback in 2019 and it wasn’t even close. Jackson finished with 421.68 points last year in standard leagues and did so in 15 games, some of which he was pulled early because of large leads. Thanks to a historic season that saw the 23-year old set the single-season quarterback rushing yards record (1,206-yards) and lead the league in touchdown passes, Jackson was as good as it got for Fantasy Football players of any position.
What did the Baltimore Ravens do to help their franchise quarterback remain dominant in 2020? Well for starters all of their core weapons from 2019 are returning for 2020 and the team went out and added three new pieces to the offense to make it even more deadly this year. Baltimore also addressed their offensive line following the retirement of Marshal Yanda to ensure Jackson remains on his feet.
Jackson also has another season under his belt with established chemistry with stars like Mark Andrews and Marquise Brown. Factor in those new weapons we mentioned and Jackson seems more than capable of having another terrific season in 2020.
While it’ll be hard to replicate what Jackson did in 2019, there’s reason to believe he’ll once again be a top-three option at quarterback in 2020. Jackson is one of the few quarterbacks that could warrant a first-round selection in standard Fantasy Football formats and even the number one overall status in Super-Flex leagues.
