Huddle Up: All six of Roman's offenses with San Francisco and Buffalo finished inside the top 10 in rushing attempts and yardage, so it would be a shock if an offense built around Jackson - a more dynamic athlete than Colin Kaepernick and Tyrod Taylor - doesn't do the same. The trick will be to develop Jackson enough as a passer so defenses cannot load the box. So long as he can stay healthy, expect Jackson to be a high-upside fantasy QB1 in 2019.

Huddle Up: Fantasy-wise, of course, the position to keep an eye on is running back. Alex Collins (early last season) and Gus Edwards (late) both had their moments in 2018, but the Ravens may seek a more dynamic back to pair with Jackson, and with opposing defenses having to account for the QB's running prowess, that RB has the potential to be an immediate fantasy gold mine.

Huddle Up: It's not a shock the Ravens want Jackson to work on his game after completing 58.2% of his passes as a rookie. Any improvement as a passer will likely vault the No. 32 overall pick in last year's draft into the top 10 of fantasy quarterbacks, so owners need to hope for positive reports on his progress this spring and summer.

Huddle Up: Just in case anyone out there was holding out hope for a Joe Flacco renaissance, Harbaugh clearly spelled it out that Jackson is the man now and Flacco will be moving on. Jackson is definitely a work in progress, but his athleticism and ability to make and extend plays with his feet are sure to make him an intriguing, high-upside selection at the position in 2019.

Huddle Up: Jackson and his Ravens beat the Chargers on the road in Week 16, but the Bolts returned the favor in Charm City in Jackson's first-career playoff start. There might be more, but the Chargers were able to expose a few things about Jackson's game. He'll almost certainly enter 2019 as the unquestioned starter under center, but there will be many better fantasy options before he goes off the board.
Posted: 1/4/2019 7:47pm ET
Huddle Up: Baltimore did end up winning a 22-10 defensive battle, but Jackson didn't put up huge numbers. Fantasy owners participating in playoff contests may be best served to avoid Jackson this weekend.

Huddle Up: The rookie led the Ravens to the AFC North Division title and in the wild-card round they're going to face a Los Angeles Chargers team they just beat last week on the road.
Posted: 12/22/2018 8:31pm ET
Huddle Up: Jackson had a quiet night running the ball by his standards, but his scrambling ability isn't going away and will continue to give him QB1 upside.
Posted: 12/16/2018 1:23pm ET
Huddle Up: Jackson has rushed for at least 67 yards in each of the last five games and has six total touchdowns during that span. He will be facing a tough Los Angeles Chargers defense next week but can still be a low-end No. 1 quarterback because of his running ability.
Posted: 12/14/2018 1:06pm ET
Huddle Up: Jackson has been starting, but he officially takes the reins as starter with Joe Flacco serving as the backup this weekend. The Bucs rank 27th in the NFL against the pass, allowing 268.5 yards per game with an NFL-high 29 touchdowns allowed. They have also yielded 51 pass plays of 20 or more yards. It could be a very fruitful week for Jackson and his fantasy owners.
Posted: 12/13/2018 12:27pm ET
Huddle Up: Jackson has done most of his damage as a runner since taking over the starting quarterback job but did throw for two touchdowns last week. He should have a favorable matchup this week and can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.
Posted: 12/12/2018 3:22pm ET
Huddle Up: Jackson is receiving another start this week and has posted at least 200 total yards in each of the last four games. He should have success against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this week and can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.
Posted: 12/12/2018 8:02am ET
Huddle Up: This doesn't change anything from a fantasy standpoint unless you were holding onto Flacco in a deeper league. Over the last three weeks, Jackson is a QB1 in points per game. He will have peaks and valleys, though. He has a good matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Posted: 12/10/2018 11:33am ET
Huddle Up: The bigger question now is whether or not Harbaugh is ready to go back to Joe Flacco or likes the new smash-mouth offense the Ravens have become under Jackson. Expect the Ravens to milk this for all that it is worth in terms of naming a starter leading up to Week 15 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Posted: 12/9/2018 5:45pm ET
Huddle Up: Assuming Jackson is telling the truth about the injury, he should remain a low-end QB1 candidate going forward thanks to his running ability. He has now eclipsed 70 rushing yards in all four of his starts.
Posted: 12/3/2018 11:34am ET
Huddle Up: Helping his cause his how much he is running - his 64 carries in three starts are three more than Gus Edwards has over the same time. Jackson also has yet to throw more than 25 passes in a game. At this point, Baltimore head coach John Harbaugh doesn't seem to know if he will continue starting the rookie or go back to Joe Flacco, but he told reporters Monday that Jackson has done enough to keep the job. If he starts again in Week 14, he'll get his stiffest test yet versus the Kansas City Chiefs.
Posted: 12/2/2018 5:03pm ET
Huddle Up: Jackson's passing numbers continue to leave a lot to be desired, but he has logged double-digit carries and more than 70 rushing yards in all three of his starts. His running ability gives him low-end QB1 potential.
Posted: 12/2/2018 12:21pm ET
Huddle Up: Jackson has had success since taking over the starting job and can be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback against favorable matchups.
Posted: 12/2/2018 12:06pm ET
Huddle Up: Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see if Jackson will be able to return to the game. Jackson has been a decent quarterback since taking over a starting job and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback if he keeps the job.
Posted: 11/26/2018 11:58pm ET
Huddle Up: The rookie signal-caller has been electrifying while filling in under center, but his usage may be limited again once Joe Flacco returns from injury, as head coach Jim Harbaugh indicated Monday.that "everything is on the table" regarding the club's QB situation. Jackson has the ability and ceiling to potentially lead fantasy teams through a deep playoff run, but owners need to see what happens first when Flacco is 100 percent healthy.
Posted: 11/25/2018 1:51pm ET
Huddle Up: Jackson had more success in the passing game this week but did throw two interceptions. He will be valuable in fantasy leagues because of his running ability, but it is not known if he will start in Week 13. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues if he plays.
Posted: 11/23/2018 10:16am ET
Huddle Up: Jackson isn't likely to repeat his post-merger QB-record 27 rushing attempts Sunday, but there's definite QB1 upside against a Raiders defense that's been one of the worst in the league vs. opposing fantasy QBs.
Posted: 11/23/2018 9:00am ET
Huddle Up: Jackson has upside against the putrid Oakland Raiders. Look at him as a midrange QB1.
Posted: 11/22/2018 7:12pm ET
Huddle Up: Jackson probably won't carry the ball 27 times again like he did in his first start, but the scrambling ability isn't going anywhere. His potential as a runner gives him QB1 upside against the Raiders.
Posted: 11/18/2018 3:05pm ET
Huddle Up: Jackson did most of his damage on the ground against the Bengals and probably will receive a similar game plan next week against the Oakland Raiders. He has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in some deeper leagues next week.
Posted: 11/17/2018 9:19pm ET
Huddle Up: Jackson's ability to generate big plays in and out of the pocket will give him plenty of upside, especially against a struggling Cincinnati defense. Don't be afraid to roll the dice on him in DFS contests.
Posted: 11/16/2018 12:29pm ET
Huddle Up: Jackson will receive playing time this week, but it is not known if he will be the starting quarterback or if he will be the backup with a handful of plays. Owners in most leagues can avoid him this week but could consider him an option down the road if he plays well.
Posted: 11/16/2018 8:55am ET
Huddle Up: Jackson could wind up starting this weekend against the Cincinnati Bengals, or they could go with Robert Griffin III, who has been under center all week. If Jackson goes, he's a volatile option, but he could serve as an upside pick if you have Tom Brady or someone else on a bye.
Posted: 11/15/2018 10:43am ET
Huddle Up: With Joe Flacco still out with a hip injury, that left Robert Griffin III as the only Baltimore QB practicing Thursday, adding even more mystery to the Ravens' Week 11 quarterback situation. We should learn more later Thursday and/or Friday.
Posted: 11/9/2018 7:38pm ET
Huddle Up: Jackson's accuracy from the pocket is a question mark, but his ability to create big plays with his legs should at least make him a QB2 will giving him a high ceiling. With Flacco's status suddenly in question, stash Jackson if he is available in your league.
Posted: 9/1/2018 6:37pm ET
Huddle Up: Even if he is used in the red zone, Jackson still only needs to be owned in dynasty leagues for now.
Posted: 8/25/2018 7:10pm ET
Huddle Up: Jackson might not overtake Joe Flacco this year, but he has the highest ceiling of any of the rookie quarterbacks because of his rushing ability, and he is a must-own player in keeper formats.
Posted: 8/22/2018 4:25pm ET
Huddle Up: Jackson likely will serve as the backup quarterback for the Ravens this season but could start later in the season if the Ravens are not in playoff contention. He will be a popular option in keeper leagues, but owners in standard leagues can pass on him in 2018.
Posted: 8/20/2018 8:30pm ET
Huddle Up: This game again showed why fantasy owners should be both excited and need to be patient with the former Heisman Trophy winner, as his touchdown pass on the run to Chris Moore was a thing of beauty. Conversely, he absorbed too much punishment trying to make things happen as a runner. His athleticism is going to put him on the high-end QB2 radar if Joe Flacco gets hurt, but it is obvious he needs more time to develop his game.
Posted: 8/9/2018 8:37pm ET
Huddle Up: His rushing ability gives him QB1 upside whenever he does have the chance to start, but Jackson will ultimately have to prove he can deliver from the pocket if he is going to be successful. In the meantime, he is a must-own option in keeper formats.
Posted: 8/2/2018 8:33pm ET
Huddle Up: Jackson made some plays with his legs but was inconsistent as a passer. He isn't a lock to contribute in redraft leagues this year, but he has QB1 upside because of his rushing ability and is a must-own option in keeper formats.
Posted: 7/22/2018 1:21pm ET
Huddle Up: ESPN's Jamison Hensley reports Jackson has already moved ahead of Robert Griffin III on the depth chart. Joe Flacco isn't in any immediate danger of losing his starting job, but Jackson's name will come up throughout the season anytime he has a bad game or two. The rookie is a great best-ball lottery ticket and has QB1 upside if he manages to become the starter at some point in 2018.
Posted: 6/16/2018 6:25pm ET
Huddle Up: Jackson will probably need an injury to Joe Flacco to make a significant impact in redraft leagues this year, but his Michael Vick-like skills make him a must-own option in keeper formats.
Posted: 5/24/2018 11:46am ET
Huddle Up: Flacco has to be a little miffed that his career-long franchise used their first-round pick on a fellow quarterback. Flacco's job is in trouble, but he was never a reliable fantasy asset anyway. He can be avoided in traditional leagues.
Posted: 5/5/2018 8:11pm ET
Huddle Up: Jackson may have a small package of plays he runs this season, but he's not taking Joe Flacco's job this year. Still, his long- term potential as a dual-threat quarterback make him worth rostering in keeper leagues and dynasty formats.
Posted: 5/5/2018 11:08am ET
Huddle Up: Jackson likely will spend his rookie season as the No. 2 quarterback for the Ravens but could start as soon as 2019. He will be a popular pick in keeper leagues but will not have a lot of value in standard leagues.
Posted: 4/29/2018 2:18pm ET
Huddle Up: According to Trotter, the plan with Jackson is to start at ground zero and throw everything at him to see what he does well and what they need to focus on. It makes sense, as Joe Flacco is a serviceable quarterback. Whenever Jackson becomes the starter - most likely 2019 - he should be considered a potential QB1 in fantasy given his incredible ability as a runner. As for 2018, he may possess more fantasy upside than any other backup quarterback.
Posted: 4/26/2018 8:35pm ET
Huddle Up: Jackson should sit behind Joe Flacco for at least one season but will be the quarterback of the future for the Ravens. He can be avoided in standard leagues this season but will be an option in keeper leagues.
Posted: 4/1/2018 11:29am ET
Huddle Up: Jackson's offseason has been unique to say the least. At the NFL Combine, some teams reportedly wanted him to try out at receiver. NFL teams have supposedly had trouble reaching him to schedule interviews over the last two months and his choice to not work with an agent has led to some curious choices regarding his workouts. Nevertheless, Jackson will very much be worth grabbing in dynasty leagues regardless of his landing spot.
