Lamar Jackson

at Jacksonville Jaguars (Week 15), at San Francisco 49ers (Week 16), vs. Miami Dolphins (Week 17)

Over the last five weeks, Lamar Jackson has been pretty average with five passing touchdowns, two interceptions but no rushing touchdowns. One of the reasons Jackson was so valuable for fantasy football was his rushing ability and the plays he made with his legs.

The passing totals aren't much better as he has had fewer than 30 passing attempts over the past five games and has had under 225 passing yards each game and only one game with multiple passing touchdowns. The Ravens don't have any reason to change either as they are 4-1 during that period.

The matchups don't get any easier come playoff time as Jackson gets the Jaguars, 49ers, and an improved Dolphins defense. The Ravens have an incredible defense and don't need much from the offense to win games, making it tough to trust Lamar Jackson to put up enough fantasy points to rank in the Top 12 during this three-week stretch.
