Fantasy Analysis
Week 15 Projections
Is his style of play sustainable? Maybe, maybe not. Is his weekly floor when he is healthy and playing sustainable? Absolutely. Four games in as a starter and he has net at least 70 yards on the ground in each contest. You never know what you're going to get out of him through the air, but he has displayed signs of growth working through his progressions the last two weeks. Until he eclipses 200 yards through the air he isn't going to elevate the ceiling, but when he does you want to be there for it. Against the Buccaneers leaky secondary there is at least potential this week.
Passsing: 139 Yards, 1 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 65 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Clearly putting Joe Flacco on notice for his steadily declining level of play during the last three seasons, the Baltimore Ravens traded up and landed Jackson with the final pick in the first round of the 2018 draft. The dual-threat triggerman is considered one of most dynamic players in NCAA history. He's a strong-armed thrower and possesses pocket-passing skills that are far more developed than believed thanks to making 38 starts in Louisville's pro-style scheme. Consistently flashing highlight-reel play-making ability as a runner, Jackson racked up a mind-blowing 4,132 rushing yards and 50 touchdowns on 655 carries during his Cardinals career. However, Jackson needs to improve his shaky-at-times accuracy (career 57 percent completions) and footwork. Although Flacco is still the guy under center for Week 1, Baltimore says Jackson will be active on game days and involved with the offense in a yet-to-be-determined role. If Flacco starts slowly, however, Jackson could get his starting shot sooner than expected. He'd be a worthwhile waiver-wire pickup since Jackson definitely will generate fantasy points with his legs.

Passing: 419 Yards, 2 TD, 2 INT.
Rushing: 130 Yards, 1 TD.
