FANTASY FOOTBALL 2022 BUST OF THE YEAR
BEAST DOME NATION.
Since the beginning of time, a QB that could run the ball in Fantasy Football always had more appeal to the eye, and fantasy roster. From Mike Vick, Daunte Culpepper, to Cam Newton. Year after Year we see many of them get over-hyped, last season ‘The BEAST DOME NATION QB RANK #10’ let the Sheep draft Lamar Jackson in the 2nd/3rd round last season, and the results spoke for themselves. Consistent 1 TD performances, consistent games falling short of 300 yards passing. All just relying on Lamar Jackson to use his legs to save his Fantasy day. Which led to an ankle injury that forced him to miss more than 25% of the season.
The Ravens head into a new season and hope to have their RB combo of Gus Edwards and JK Dobbins healthy. Last season both went down in the preseason which put more pressure on the Ravens to be a pass first offense in 2021. The result (11 healthy games) for Lamar was a lot of INTs 13, to go with 16 TD Passes. With both Gus and JK semi-healthy, expect the Ravens to go back to being a run-first offense. Thus decreasing Lamar Jackson who was consistently throwing the ball around 30 times a game (3x over 40) in 2021, go back to 20 times a game, similar to 2020.
The biggest reason Lamar Jackson will be the BUST of the YEAR is because the Ravens separated Hollywood Brown from the Franchise. To take away the most dynamic WR the Ravens have, and replace him with nobody is a beyond terrible move. What made Hollywood so good was his threat to take any deep pass to the house, which forced the saftey to play back. Now the saftey can creep into the box, which will blow up the running game as teams blitz more.
Nothing will come easy for the Ravens offense in 2022, they are playing with RBs who will likely never be 100% again, and a WR core that would likely be Special Teams Players on Super Bowl offenses. The schedule is very tough and the only way the Ravens can win games; is by relying on Baltimore’s defense to dominate and keep the score low, while the offense kills clock, and controls the ball on the ground.
There is nothing positive that can be said about Lamar Jackson heading into 2022
Despite all this
