Lamar Jackson QB1

Recommended Posts

I figured Lamar probably needs a thread of his own. As I'm sure evaluation/analysis of his play, growth, potential, production, etc- Will be a major discussion point for 2019 and the foreseeable future.

That explosive element we theorized all offseason showed up big in Week 1. Let's hope it's here to stay. Lamar has bled efficiency into both the run & pass. Now we're seeing the true high end potential of the offense, where we're maximizing impact on opportunity.

Yeah that’s what’s impressive. People compare him to Vick and like I said when they did. He’s Mike Vick but with the ability to read defenses at a high level and make accurate passes. Plus he’s bigger and stronger. Cam Newton is more comparable to Vick as a passer, both in reading defenses and in accuracy.

Lamar Jackson is what everyone has hyped other QB's to be, but he's treated like he's Tim Tebow as a passer. He is legit and right now He's a QB1 in Fantasy and I love it. He kept numerous drives alive today with his arm and legs that under Flacco would've died.

They should preface it by saying “Ravens record”. If he gets the actual record or even gets close to it, he’s legit top 3 in the MVP conversation for sure.

That's my quarterback 

One of the things that is so hard to gauge in the draft process is the drive a QB has to be better and to learn.

Lamar really seems to get it, that he has to improve in many areas. We talked about the drive shown in the Flacco/Lamar thread, and this is one of the things where we can see a QB trying to improve (don't know if we saw the same reports with Flacco in the pre twitter era).

As I mentioned in the gameday thread, Lamar has to avoid always locking in on Marquise Brown and Mandrews. Yesterday I felt he sometimes "holds" the ball a little longer because he knows either will get open eventually, instead of hitting the receiver/tight end that is open. We noticed at least one time where Hurst was wide open, and Lamar had already zoned in on Mandrews as his target.
