Ravens-Jets fantasy recap: Lamar Jackson, Sam...


The Ravens clinched the AFC North title in a dominant 42-21 showing against the Jets on Thursday night. The Jets came into this matchup hobbled without defensive stars Jamal Adams, Quinnen Williams and two of the team’s cornerbacks, Arthur Maulet and Brian Poole, but it probably would not have mattered against MVP favorite Lamar Jackson.

Mark Ingram, Mark Andrews, Marquise Brown and Jamison Crowder were all able to come away with strong fantasy stats.

With their tenth straight win, the Ravens move to 12-2, while the Jets drop to 5-9 in a season riddled with disappointment.

Here are five things you need to know for fantasy football:

1. Lamar Jackson explodes third five-touchdown game this season, passes Michael Vick in rushing

Jackson entered this game 23 yards shy of Vick’s record for rushing yards in a season. He smashed that number with eight carries for 86 yards, surpassing Vick on his third rush of the game. He also completed 15 of 23 pass attempts for 212 yards and five touchdowns. 

Jackson leads the league with 33 passing touchdowns and has more rushing yards than the combined efforts of Josh Allen, Deshaun Watson and Russell Wilson. With the division wrapped up, the Ravens will set their eyes on clinching home-field advantage which they could do in the unlikely event both the Chiefs and Patriots lose this week. However, there is a distinct possibility Jackson sits out during the Ravens’ Week 17, though most leagues will be over by then.

2. Mark Ingram scores rushing and receiving touchdowns

Ingram scored on the team’s first possession on a 6-yard rush and again during the fourth quarter on a 10-yard pass to put the Ravens up 42-13. He finished the game with 13 rushes for 76 yards and that lone catch. He also made a 2-point conversion during the second quarter. He will remain a RB2 going into Cleveland next week.

3. Good night for Ravens’ pass catchers Mark Andrews and Marquise Brown

Jackson spread the ball around to his receivers in his five-touchdown performance. Receiver Miles Boykin scored on a 5-yard pass with 2:50 remaining in the first quarter and tight end Mark Andrews scored on a 1-yard pass on the very next drive. Receiver Marquise Brown scored on a 24-yard pass in the third quarter to put the Ravens up 28-7, and receiver Seth Roberts scored on a 33-yard pass to widen the margin to 35-7.

Andrews came into the game questionable with a leg contusion he suffered in Buffalo in Week 14. He finished with four catches on seven targets for 52 yards and maintains top-tier TE1 status. Brown caught all four of his targets for 45 yards and has WR3/flex appeal next week in Cleveland.

4. Sam Darnold turnover woes continue

Darnold had another messy outing during a lopsided game that never felt close. He completed 18 of 32 pass attempts for 218 yards, two touchdowns and two turnovers.

He tossed an ugly interception at the Ravens’ 25-yard line at the end of the first half, then fumbled on their own 35 after being sacked for a 10-yard loss by linebacker Tyus Bowser. The fumble proved costly, as the Ravens scored almost immediately to make the score 28-7. Expect more turnovers in Week 16 as Darnold faces a stout Steelers defense.

5. Jamison Crowder scores both Jets touchdowns

Crowder scored early in the second quarter on a 4-yard pass with the team trailing by 13 points. At 13-7, it seemed for a moment that the Jets could be at least a little competitive, but they quickly fell behind on a number of miscues, including a bad red zone turnover by Darnold with 29 seconds remaining in the first half and a quarterback fumble on which Lamar Jackson quickly capitalized.

Crowder picked up a garbage time score on an 18-yard pass in the fourth quarter. He finished with six catches on 11 targets for 90 yards, which is his first multi-touchdown game and best fantasy performance all year.
