Factoid: Lamar Jackson

The Ravens ran for 3 TDs in their opener, reminding me that while Lamar Jackson runs for a lot of yards, he doesn’t seem all that interested in taking the ball into the end zone on his own.   more »

Team projections: Great expectations

The season opens in less than a week, so now seems like a good time to lock in only my overall projections for the lay of the land – the 1 thru 32 expectations for each offense.   more »


Ian Allan: Regression to the mean

Everyone is familiar with the perils of hoping a player can repeat a big season. “Regression to the mean” and “sophomore slump” are terms that are commonly thrown around – different ways of suggesting that when you use an early pick on a player, you’re more likely to get something less than what you’re expecting. But is there a sweet spot where the math flips?   more »

After his first practice with new Baltimore offensive coordinator Todd Monken, veteran quarterback LAMAR JACKSON said he was extremely pleased with the direction of the new scheme, adding that he believesMore a philosophy change was needed to be successful going forward. When asked about the new offense, Jackson said there would be “less running and more throwing”.

Around the NFL: Zay Flowers

If form holds, there will be some notable rookie pass catchers. In the last 10 years, 35 wide receivers have finished with top-40 numbers in their first season. But I don’t think Zay Flowers is going to be one of those guys.   more »

Fantasy News: Odell Beckham

I was surprised when the Ravens signed Odell Beckham to a one-year contract worth $15 million guaranteed, with another $3 million available in incentives. Seems like a lot for a 30-year-old receiver who’s torn his ACL twice in the last three years. But I am warming up to the move.   more »



Ravens QB Jackson to skip start of offseason workouts

While this news is not unexpected, Baltimore Ravens quarterback LAMAR JACKSON did not show up this week for the start of offseason workouts. With the workouts being voluntary and Jackson notMore under contract since he has not signed his franchise tag, it remains to be seen when and if Jackson returns to action for the Ravens. Jackson is expected to stay away from the team until he ultimately signs a deal. Less

QB Jackson giving Ravens ultimatum?

Disgruntled Baltimore Ravens quarterback LAMAR JACKSON reportedly told the team they needed to acquire veteran Arizona Cardinals wide receive DEANDRE HOPKINS before discussions can continue. Hopkins has been on the tradeMore market for months and despite interest from several teams, the Cardinals have been unable to trade him. Jackson supposedly told the Ravens to acquire both ODELL BECKHAM JR. and Hopkins before he will continue contract negotiations with the team. The team signed OBJ last week, but time will tell if they pursue Hopkins as well. Less

Andy Richardson: Aaron Rodgers

Eventually, Aaron Rodgers is going to be traded from Green Bay to the Jets. Right? They've been saying this for more than a month now, but here we are and it still hasn't happened. If I were a Jets fan, I'd be getting a little nervous.   more »



Baltimore QB Jackson reportedly requested trade

Baltimore Ravens quarterback LAMAR JACKSON reportedly requested a trade earlier this month after saying that the team “has not been interested in meeting my value” during contract talks. Head coach JohnMore Harbaugh said he is still building the offense around Jackson, but he also acknowledged that there is uncertainty regarding his signal-caller’s situation.

Around the NFL: Indianapolis Colts

Some drama was added to the Baltimore Ravens and Lamar Jackson situation yesterday, when Jackson revealed he's asked to be traded. It can be debated whether the Ravens or Jackson are being more stubborn in this contract standoff. But I think the Colts should think long and hard about making a run at the running quarterback.   more »



Ravens use non-exclusive franchise tag on QB Jackson

The Baltimore Ravens have used the non-exclusive version of the franchise tag on star quarterback LAMAR JACKSON, meaning that Jackson can negotiate with other teams beginning on March 15th. If heMore agrees to an offer sheet with another team, the Ravens would have the opportunity to match. If they decline, Baltimore would get that team’s next two first-round picks. If Jackson is unable to reach a deal with another team, he would remain with the Ravens for another year upon signing the tag. Get your popcorn ready, fantasy owners. Less
