Lamar Jackson and Ravens contract talks heating up

Per Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL Network, contract talks between the Baltimore Ravens and star QB Lamar Jackson are heating up. General manager Eric DeCosta was quoted as saying "We're confident and committed to getting a long-term deal done. It may take a little time, but we're going to try."

Fantasy Impact

The 2019 MVP and the Ravens continue to try to work through contract negotiations as the team tries to keep their star player out of free agency. Jackson is set to hit the open market after this season in which he will likely garner a four-year deal. The star QB carries a $3 million cap hit this season along with a $9 million salary.

Lamar Jackson expected to receive contract extension with Baltimore

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh is "totally certain" that the team's star quarterback, Lamar Jackson, will eventually receive a long-term contract extension from the organization.

Fantasy Impact

The 2019 MVP totaled 33 touchdowns and nine interceptions during the 2020 season and secured his first postseason win against the Tennessee Titans in the Wild Card round. With his electric play-making ability, speed and development as a passer, Jackson will remain among the best quarterbacks in the league, especially if he signs a long-term contract extension to keep him in Baltimore to build on continuity with the players and coaching schemes. Fantasy managers in redraft leagues may want to exercise caution in 2021 fantasy drafts, as many who opted to draft Jackson in the first few rounds came to regret it due to the quarterback's regression in rushing touchdowns and passing efficiency.

Lamar Jackson held in check before exiting Saturday’s Divisional Round loss

Lamar Jackson (concussion) completed 14-of-24 passes for 162 yards with one interception and rushed nine times for 34 yards before exiting Saturday’s 17-3 loss with a concussion.

Fantasy Impact

Jackson sustained a concussion in the third quarter of Saturday’s loss and was ruled out for the remainder of the game. He was held in check by the Bills defense before exiting. Jackson has one year left on his rookie deal and the Ravens are exploring an extension with their star QB. The 24-year-old was inconsistent as a passer in 2020, but is in a league of his own as a runner as he rushed for 1,005 yards and seven touchdowns. The 2019 MVP is currently fifth among all quarterbacks in the latest expert consensus draft rankings for 2021.
