Childs Walker of The Baltimore Sun reports that the Ravens plan to have rookie QB Lamar Jackson active on game days this season and will draw up plays designed to feature Jackson during the game, which could include lining him up with fellow QB Joe Flacco also on the field, according to head coach John Harbaugh. "You’ve got the ability to put two quarterbacks on the field at the same time,” said Harbaugh. “You want to find the way to get the most out of all your guys. Lamar’s going to be on the team. I fully expect him to be active on game day." (The Baltimore Sun)

Fantasy Impact:

This is an interesting and welcomed wrinkle to Jackson's development and potential fantasy value for 2018. Not surprisingly, Jackson has struggled as a passer so far, but is a fantastic athlete with immense upside. For him to be an effective NFL signal-caller, the Ravens will have to be willing to cater an entire offense to fit Jackson's skill-set. Drawing up specific plays to utilize Jackson immediately is a step in the right direction.
