Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 2 Rankings
Lamar Jackson Note

He picked up right where he left off in 2019, making it look easy against the Browns defense, completing 20-of-25 passes for 275 yards and three touchdowns. How can we expect him to have more pass attempts when he's continually this efficient? The Browns were a plus matchup, but so are the Texans. They're struggling to get pressure, as Patrick Mahomes was under duress on just six of his 33 dropbacks in Week 1. If you give Jackson time, he's going to carve you up. Their starting cornerback unit consists of Bradley Roby, Vernon Hargreaves, and Antonio Hamilton. This is a worse version of the defense that Jackson played in 2019 when they still had D.J. Reader and Johnathan Joseph, as well as Gareon Conley healthy. In that Week 11 game last year, Jackson threw the ball just 24 times, but they went for 222 yards and four touchdowns, while he also rushed for 86 yards. Over their last 17 games, they've allowed 13 quarterbacks to post at least 17.9 fantasy points. You're getting a sky-high floor and ceiling with Jackson, so don't hesitate to play him in both cash and tournament lineups if you can afford him.
