Only concern is Ronnie Stanley might be out (concussion)

NFL.com's Mike Garafolo reports the Ravens will rest Lamar Jackson in Week 17 if their playoff seeding is secured.

With the tiebreaker on the Patriots, the Ravens have a functional two-game lead on the AFC's No. 1 seed, and figure to pulverize the Jets on Thursday night. Week 17 is a grudge match with the Steelers — one that figures to be hugely important to Pittsburgh's playoff chances — but the Ravens would have little to gain by risking Jackson's health in an emotional divisional tilt. An absence would be unlikely to affect Jackson's MVP odds, which are close to wrapped up.

Most fantasy leagues end in week 16 so that shouldn't effect too many people.

This qualifies as an awful reason.

RG3 Should be on 100% waivers, if you don't have a backup QB...I have Kyle Allen and Baker on my bench!...Don't ask why I'm carrying 3 QBs! League voted to keep teams as is passed week 14..in a nut shell!

Imagine RG3 in to win you, your ship!

Lamar owners rooting for the Pats to win this week or he might be resting by the 2nd half next week.

There is nearly nothing anyone can do at this point to convince me anyone but Jackson is MVP, sorry Wilson, but it's over.

The only problem with him us he wont score as many points as he could. The flip side is hes at 30 points before hes off throttle. I ain't worried for week 16

True he's been pulled early in a number of games now, meaning we haven't even seen his ceiling yet.

I chuckled when a guy in my leeg drafted him early in my mind.. Who's laughing now

League winner for sure not to mention what he's done for the Ravens. Looks like the only team that can stop them is their own
