Lamar Jackson - Fantasy Football Rankings, Draft Sleepers, NFL Injury News © Provided by RotoBaller Lamar Jackson - Fantasy Football Rankings, Draft Sleepers, NFL Injury News Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson missed the final five games of the regular season with a knee injury, a disappointing finish to his fifth regular season as a pro. Fantasy managers had to find a replacement, and the Ravens' offense has been awful during his absence.

His status remains uncertain as the Ravens head into the playoffs, so DFS gamers and die-hard Ravens fans will have to stay tuned for his latest injury updates.

Will Jackson play in the Wild Card game against the Cincinnati Bengals? What is his DFS outlook if he takes the field for the first time since Week 13? Let's find out.


Lamar Jackson Injury Update for Fantasy Football

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson (knee) missed the season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 18, but the Ravens believe there is a strong chance that Jackson starts during their wild-card game next weekend in a rematch with the Bengals.

Perhaps Jackson could've played recently, but the Ravens clinched a playoff spot a few weeks ago, so hasn't been on the field in quite some time. His return would be great news for the Ravens' offense. We'll have to wait and see how Jackson feels during the next week before the Ravens make a final decision. For now, head coach John Harbaugh does not have an update on Jackson's status.


Lamar Jackson Wild Card Outlook

If Jackson plays, there's a chance his knee injury affects his mobility, which greatly reduces his fantasy value. Jackson is one of just three quarterbacks to ever rush for 1,000 yards in NFL history, and a lot of his fantasy production has come from his legs.

The Ravens' wide receiver room of Sammy Watkins, Demarcus Robinson, and James Proche II is arguably the worst set of receiving in the leagues, so Mark Andrews remains his only high-end pass-catchers.

To make things worse, the Bengals allowed the fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks during the regular season. Ultimately, Jackson's upside is likely as low as it has ever been in his young stellar career.
