Man, Lamar Jackson is fun to watch, isn't he? Whatever your opinion is of him as a passer - and I think we can all agree that there's room for improvement - he is dynamic and electric when the ball is in his hands. Very few players in the NFL, let alone at the QB position, have the ability to make my jaw drop with what they do on the field as a runner. While Jackson's passing numbers so far this season leave a lot to be desired, he's absolutely winning fantasy managers weeks with what he's doing so far with his legs. Jackson is up to 193 rushing yards on the season already through two weeks. This is enough to put him third in the entire NFL in this category only behind players like Derrick Henry (240) and Joe Mixon (196), and ahead of Dalvin Cook (191). Even if Jackson's passing touchdown efficiency doesn't tick up in future weeks, which is does stand a very good chance of doing as more of his receiving corps get back healthy, he's still providing fantasy managers with a ridiculous floor with his rushing ability. Against the Detroit Lions, Jackson has overall QB1 upside yet again this week.

The Lions are 22nd against fantasy quarterbacks and now they have to go against Jackson, who has averaged 26.13 fantasy points over the first two weeks of the season. Jackson should be an elite QB1.
