Lamar Jackson throws for 3,500 yards during the Baltimore Ravens 2021-2022 season

Over the past two seasons, as the Baltimore Ravens’ full-time starter, Jackson has thrown for 5,884 yards and 62 touchdowns in the regular season and another 706 yards in the postseason to go along with another score.

He’s never thrown for more than 4,000 yards in a season, and though much of our staff isn’t quite ready to say that this is the year that he’ll accomplish that feat, we will state that he can eclipse the 3,500-yard plateau, especially now that there’s a 17th game in the regular season.

He’s been around that 65 percent compilation percentage. That will stay the same thanks to the addition of Sammy Watkins and the presence of Marquise Brown, Miles Boykin, and rookie Rashod Bateman running routes for him on the outside.

This could be a huge passing season for Mr. Jackson, and no one should be surprised if and when it is.
