QB - BAL
According to NFL reporter Jeff Howe, Lamar Jackson and Ravens have had a "recent" dialogue on a new contract according to Ravens GM Eric DeCosta.
Rumors have continued to come out of Ravens' side that the team and their star QB have had a dialogue about a new contract but have yet to come to terms despite reports being dated back to the beginning of the playoffs. Jackson is in the last year of his contract that will cost the team $23,016,000 against the cap.
According to NBC Sports Edge, there is less of a chance that Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens are able to agree on a contract extension before training camp.
If Jackson is disgruntled with the way negotiations progress, a holdout could be a possibility, in which case fantasy managers will need to have backup Tyler Huntley on their radar.
ESPN's Jamison Hensley speculates that an extension for Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson could land him more than $40 million per year.
Baltimore isn't in a rush to extend Jackson considering he can be retained for less than $40 million per year through 2024. Still, the team would surely enjoy locking him up long-term sooner rather than later. Jackson dealt with an injury throughout a large chunk of 2021, but assuming he has healed since then, fantasy managers should view him as a QB1 heading into next season.
Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson (ankle) won't play against the Steelers on Sunday afternoon.
Tyler Huntley will command the Baltimore offense ahead of Sunday's regular-season finale. Through four games as the Ravens' QB1, the 23-year-old has racked up 901 passing yards, three passing touchdowns, and two picks. He also has 212 rushing yards and a pair of scores on the ground. Fantasy managers should view him as a mid-range QB2 this week.
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson did not practice on Wednesday due to his ankle injury.
As of right now it seems that Tyler Huntley is looking like the starter for Week 18's matchup against the Steelers. This is a important game for the Ravens and the Steelers as they both are in wild card contentions. Jackson has not played since Week 14, we will have to keep monitoring the practice reports throughout the week for his gameday status for Week 18, but I would make other arrangements if your hoping for Jackson to be ready to go.
