Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Bradford has boasted a 68.6 completion % over the past three seasons, so he could deliver sneaky value in two-QB leagues. Yet he has not played 16 games in 2012, and Josh Rosen is waiting for his turn. 
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Bradford is no lock to hold his job through the pre-season and we know he is as injury prone as they come, but if he does end up starting, Bradford offers much more than the general public will remember. He is by no means a QB1 or even close, but he does have the best QB-rating over his past 16 starts than anyone in the NFL.If Jackson ends up getting the Ravens job at some point this year, he would be an immediate top 15 fantasy QB with upside for much more. His passing may not be ready, but his legs likely have him above even Cam Newton and older dual-threat QBs like RG3 and Vince Young.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
We'll have to keep an eye on the quarterback competition in Arizona, but if Rosen can look competent, he probably has the edge to start.Jackson is worth a stash in deep leagues and 2QB leagues this season. If Joe Flacco falters early, we could easily see Jackson get more and more work and with his ability, his fantasy numbers could be startable in 12-team leagues. *
Staff Rankings
QB List
 The Ravens really like Jackson, he's been impressing in camp, and as I mentioned earlier, Joe Flacco is getting worse quickly. This team is built to contend, signing three quality wide receivers to go with breakout start running back Alex Collins and a defense that was among the best in the NFL last year. If Joe Flacco is the thing that keeps them from contending, he'll be gone and Jackson will be in. Jackson has the potential to be a dynamic quarterback in the NFL, and he's in a good situation in Baltimore, as he'll be with offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, who coached Michael Vick, and assistant coach Greg Roman, who coached Colin Kaepernick. If any offensive coaching staff is prepared to create an offense for a mobile quarterback like Jackson, it's the Ravens, and if he gets the starting job at some point this season, there could be a lot of fantasy points to be had.

Major injury concern or he'd be top-15 
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
In theory, Bradford could be a steal. He does have Josh Rosen breathing down his neck and his knees could give at any moment, thoughJackson is a very interesting fantasy sleeper if he somehow unseats Flacco. I just don't know if that happens in year one
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After being given $20 million despite not having a clean bill of health, Bradford seemed like he was a lock to start for the Cardinals this year. After they landed Josh Rosen in the first-round, things are a bit cloudier, as he was widely considered as the most pro-ready quarterback in the class. By selecting Bradford (even in 2QB leagues), you're playing with fire. Some are expecting Jackson to get a shot by mid-season, though I'm not one of them. Joe Flacco has been an untouchable for so long, they aren't going to simply go away from him. While yes, they did draft Jackson, he wasn't valued more than Hayden Hurst, who they took with their first-round pick. I think they give Flacco this full season before moving on, barring a major disaster.
Jody Smith
FantasyPros
Bradford is one of the most accurate passers in the game and could be a great fit with Larry Fitzgerald, but he simply can't be relied upon to stay healthy and now has Josh Rosen right at his heels. Projecting Bradford to play even 12-13 games is a volatile strategy. Jackson could see a difficult transition and needs an offense to be entirely be built around his intriguing offense. If Jackson is thrust into action in 2018 in Baltimore's current offense, he'll struggle. But, if Joe Flacco goes down and the Ravens are able to alter on the go as Bill O'Brien did last year in Houston, Jackson has the kind of elite skill set to take the league by storm.
