News: 2 days agoJackson completed 23 of 37 passes for 253 yards, one touchdown and one interception during Sunday's 20-19 loss at Pittsburgh. He added eight carries for 55 yards.
Spin: Jackson and the Ravens offense marched right down the field on the opening possession of the game, but when faced with a third down at the Steelers' 10-yard line he incurred heavy pressure from an unblocked T.J. Watt and heaved a throw into the end zone that was easily picked off by Minkah Fitzpatrick. After combining for 18 interceptions through his first three seasons, Jackson already is up to 13 through 11 games, which ranks second in the NFL to Joe Burrow's 14. Jackson salvaged his day with a six-yard scoring strike with 12 seconds remaining, but his subsequent two-point conversion attempt fell incomplete. He'll aim to bounce back next Sunday at Cleveland.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: The NFL's premier rushing QB, Jackson has paced the position in carries and rushing yards during all three of his NFL seasons. That includes a 159-1005-7 rushing line in 2020 that was actually a step back from what he produced during his MVP run in 2019. Jackson also accounted for 370 fewer passing yards, 10 fewer TDs and three more INTs, while regressing from first to 10th in fantasy points. The return to earth was expected after the historic and unsustainable 2019 showing. The 24-year-old is expected to throw the ball more in 2021after the team added Rashod Bateman, Tylan Wallace and Sammy Watkins to a group that also includes Marquise Brown and Mark Andrews . Jackson should be valued as a mid-range QB1 with upside for more.
