The Baltimore Ravens have a spot in the playoffs locked up, but they still have a chance to win the AFC North, but their starting quarterback is still not practicing. Lamar Jackson wasn’t able to practice on Wednesday, but reports do give him a chance to return this week against the Steelers.

Tyler Huntley has been the backup and would continue to start if Jackson were to miss this week. He hasn’t put up the best numbers, but has been able to pst wins in three of his four appearances.

Lamar Jackson injury updates

Friday, Dec. 30 update — Lamar Jackson won’t play this week, or in John Harbaugh’s words, it is a “fair assumption” that Jackson is out, per Jamison Hensley. Tyler Huntley will get the start.

Thursday, Dec. 29 update — Lamar Jackson wasn’t at practice on Thursday, per Jonas Shaffer. He’ll need to get out there Friday to have a shot at playing this weekend.

Wednesday, Dec. 28 update — Lamar Jackson did not practice on Wednesday due to his lingering knee injury.

Fantasy football advice

Huntley has some fantasy upside as a runner, but he hasn’t been consistent enough to start against the Steelers if Jackson can’t go. Jackson hasn’t been a huge fantasy contributor, but we know his upside and he could be worth a start.
