Lamar Jackson (illness) fine for Ravens in Week 6

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson (illness) returned to practice on Friday.

What It Means:

Jackson missed practice on Thursday because he was feeling under the weather, but his return on Friday puts him back on track for the Ravens' Week 6 matchup with the Los Angeles Chargers. Through five games, Jackson is averaging 303.8 passing yards and 68.2 rushing yards per contest. He is also leading the Ravens with 11.2 carries per game.

The Chargers are the fifth-best team in the league this year in terms of Adjusted Passing Net Expected Points allowed per drop back, but their rush defense is sixth-worst when measured in Adjusted Rushing NEP allowed per carry. Lamar has an $8,200 salary on FanDuel in Week 6 and numberFire's models project him for 23.2 FanDuel points, making him our third-best point-per-dollar play at the quarterback position this week.
