3rd Lamar Jackson
Lamar Jackson is a young electrifying player who many people doubt his throwing abilities. I don’t see him becoming much better of a pocket passer in 2019, rather I see him being more of a running quarterback with low passing touchdowns and a lot of turnovers. When Lamar Jackson took over in week 11, he finished as the 13 th QB that week. He had only one top 5 week and that was week 17 against Cleveland. Jackson completed 99 of his 170 attempts for 1201 yards, 6 touchdowns, and 3
interceptions. Jackson scored a lot of his points on the ground, Jackson ran 147 times for 695 yards, and 5 scores with 10 fumbles. Jackson in 2019 only averaged 10.6 fantasy points per game in 6 point per passing touchdown leagues. He finished as a top 12 QB only 25% of the time. He will have a nice rushing floor this season. So nice he could finish with close to 1000 yards on the ground. His downside will be his lack of passing ability. Lamar Jackson’s touchdown rate was 3.5% which would’ve been good for 25th in the league. Jackson averaged 7.1 yards per pass attempt and did not go down the field often in 2018. This is a trend I don’t see ending in 2019.
