QB - BAL
This Week Outlook
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Tyler Huntley completed 16-of-31 passes for 141 yards and two interceptions in a 16-13 overtime loss to the Steelers in Week 18.
Huntley added 12 carries for 72 yards in the loss. He performed admirably in place of Lamar Jackson over the final portion of the season. He enters the offseason as an exclusive rights free agent.
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Tyler Huntley will start the regular-season finale against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Ravens starting quarterback Lamar Jackson (ankle) hasn't officially been ruled out yet, but Baltimore will most likely make him inactive before Sunday. Huntley will get the nod with the Ravens having a chance to make the playoffs. He's played well in Jackson's absence, throwing for 901 yards, three touchdowns while rushing for 212 yards, and two scores over his last four games. The 23-year-old is currently 20th among all quarterbacks in the latest FantasyPros expert consensus rankings.
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Tyler Huntley completed 20-of-32 passes for 197 yards and an interception in a 20-19 loss to the Rams in Week 17. He added 54 yards on six carries.
Huntley struggled after missing Week 16 while on the COVID list as he was held without a touchdown after combining for five in his previous two starts. Lamar Jackson's status for Week 18 is in doubt but the Ravens still have a chance to make the playoffs so fantasy gamers will have to monitor practice reports this week as Baltimore gears up to face the Steelers in Week 18.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Ravens QB Tyler Huntley "is the likely starter" for Week 17.
While the Ravens are expected to work out and test QB Lamar Jackson and his ailing ankle during pregame, the expectation is that Huntley will ultimately start. Jackson was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice but was downgraded to "DNP" on Thursday, which clearly was not a good sign for his playing status. If it is indeed Huntley under center for the Ravens, fantasy managers should have some confidence. Huntley has been terrific in his appearances this season, logging at least 22 fantasy points in each of his last two outings with a 38 point ceiling -- depending on the scoring format. The Rams aren't in easy out, but Huntley will be playing at home and in a must-win spot. Expect him to deliver a high floor in fantasy.
The Ravens activated QB Tyler Huntley from the COVID-19 list.
Huntley will return to backup duties if Lamar Jackson (ankle) is able to start in Week 17 against the Rams. Otherwise, Huntley could draw another spot start. His rushing upside would make him a borderline QB1/2 if named the starter.
