Is the Ravens QB playing this Week vs. Steelers?

Lamar Jackson is the starting quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens. Jackson hasn’t missed a single game this season and has been among the favorites to get drafted into the Fantasy Football League.

Lamar Jackson has started all 12 games he has played and has recorded 2.242 passing yards, 17 touchdowns, and seven interceptions. He has a pass completion percentage of 62.3 and a record of 8-4 this season. The NFL has entered Week 14 and the Ravens will face the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.

Jackson suffered a knee injury in last week’s game against the Denver Broncos. The Ravens had a 10-9 victory over the Broncos, but Jackson had to depart the field in the first half. Although Jackson’s knee injury is not season-ending, he could miss a few upcoming games.

He has been listed as doubtful in the team’s injury report this week. Jackson did not participate in any of the practice sessions this week and has a slim chance of playing this Sunday against the Steelers. On Friday, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh told reporters about Jackson’s injury and that backup quarterback Tyler Huntley might replace him in the upcoming game.

Lamar Jackson will most likely miss the upcoming game. Fans should bench him and give their backup a chance to score fantasy points. If fantasy players have Huntley on their roster, then they can count on him for this week.

After Jackson’s injury in the last game, Huntley took the job and completed 27 of his 32 throws for 187 yards passing and an interception to help the club move to 8-4. He also rushed 10 times for 41 yards and the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter.
