Lamar Jackson
QB - BAL

Mark Ringo
Sleepers and Busts
Lamar "Action" Jackson disappointed owners in 2020 mainly because they took him too early, but he's still very talented and the fastest guy on the field. His rushing yards add up quickly in the fantasy box score. He had 1,000 yards and he missed a game- incredible! The Ravens improved offensive line should help. He's Michael Vick 2.0. Jackson will be cheaper on draft day this year which I like. Probably because I'm cheap haha! '.Let Russ Cook! I was completely wrong about him last year and I got burned! I thought the Seahawks were going run heavy and they let him air it out. That was the knock on him. His offensive scheme was too run heavy. It was never his talent. Seattle brought in a new offensive coordinator, Shane Waldron, from the Rams, so any worries about Brian Schottenheimer going back to the run are gone. The main concern- can the offensive line protect him? Wilson complained about getting hit too much. If they can, Russ will serve up plenty of fantasy points for hungry owners.
Joe Pisapia
FantasyPros
It would have been impossible for Lamar Jackson to duplicate his lofty 2019 performance of 420 fantasy points. For the first 11 weeks, it seemed like a combination of the league catching up to the Ravens' scheme and the Ravens being cautious with their best weapon. What resulted were lackluster results. After a Week 12 absence, Jackson posted 80 or more rushing yards in 4 of his last five games, where he finished as a QB1 in each of those final five contests. A more confident Lamar Jackson, coming off exercising playoff demons, is one you should be aggressive on in 2021. After all, it is only his fourth year in the league, and he's still an elite fantasy QB.For the first nine weeks of the season Russell Wilson, averaged 29.5 pts per game. After that, Wilson averaged just 17.5 pts the rest of the way, killing his MVP candidacy and many fantasy playoff hopes as well. Wilson is a steady presence, despite the down ending in 2020. He should be a lock for 4+K yards and around 35 TDs. The notion the Seahawks were shopping him seriously this offseason is laughable. The franchise QB isn't going anywhere. Last season, Wilson's rushing yards went back above the 500 mark, and his 42 combined passing and rushing TDs were a career-high. At 32, Wilson is in his prime and is an excellent redraft or dynasty investment. D.K. Metcalf's emerging star, coupled with the familiarity of Tyler Lockett, a returning Chris Carson, and an exciting slot WR option drafted in D'Wayne Eskridge, should keep Wilson high on the fantasy QB scale again at season's end. He could be the best return on investment in the position.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Most fantasy managers expected significant regression from Jackson last year, and they certainly got it, especially early on. Through Week 11, Jackson averaged just 20.3 fantasy points per game, 12th-most among quarterbacks. From that point on, he averaged 27.7 fantasy points per game, most in the league. A large part of his success later in the year was the increase in his rushing yardage, as he went from averaging 57.5 rushing yards per game in the first 11 weeks to 86 rushing yards per game over his final five contests. Jackson will likely continue to rely on his legs plenty, but he'll also have new weapons, including rookie Rashod Bateman and Sammy Watkins. Add it all together and Jackson should provide an incredibly high floor with the upside to finish as the No. 1 quarterback overall again if everything breaks perfectly. 
Tim Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Despite the narrative that Lamar Jackson "can't throw" his throws have consistently produced fantasy points. He has ranked 2nd and 11th overall in True Throw Value (a BRoto Fantasy Exclusive Stat that measures a QB's fantasy efficiency through the air) and continues to dominate on the ground. The new era of mobile QBs is here and Jackson is a godfather.The #LetRussCook movement seemed to have worked because the Seahawks finally let go of the run-centric Brian Schottenheimer at OC and brought in Rams pass-game coordinator for the last 4 seasons, Shane Waldron, to take his place. We have seen Jared Goff thrive under his watch but we've also seen run-centric offenses in LA. If Russell Wilson is finally unleashed, he could finally have the top-3 fantasy season everyone has been waiting for.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Lamar Jackson was never going to duplicate his 2019 season, he did well to finish 2020 with 341.78 fantasy points in 15 games or 22.79 fantasy points per game. He should be an elite fantasy QB again in 2021.Wilson really regressed in the second half of the season. In games 1-8, he had 236.1 fantasy points or 29.5 points per game. In games 9-17, he had 136.5 fantasy points or 17.1 fantasy points per game. Wilson is still 32-years old and in his career prime, but he can't be considered an elite QB1. He is more of a low-end QB1.
