1.) Lamar Jackson is Week 8’s highest overall scorer

When you look at the quarterback position this season, Lamar Jackson should be in the conversation as one of if not the best at this point in the season. He has completed 71% of his passes with 8 touchdowns and only three interceptions.

In addition, he has posted 146.7 fantasy points which puts him in the top ten as of right now. This week, the Ravens are taking on the Arizona Cardinals who are ranked as the 26th overall defense for points against as well as the 23rd ranked pass defense. If you add in his running ability to his high ceiling he has in the passing game, Jackson could pick up where he left off last week against the Lions.

The Cardinals’ pass defense has allowed over 300 yards in all but one game this season, and have allowed no less than 92 yards on the ground. Baltimore is 10 point favorite heading into this game, and Jackson could run up the scoreboard both on the ground and in the air, making the prediction of him being the highest scorer overall amongst all fantasy players.
