Lamar Jackson (quad) is officially questionable for Ravens vs. Jets on Thursday Night Football. Jackson apparently sustained the quad injury last Sunday against Buffalo. He was a limited participant on the Ravens’ practice report Monday and Tuesday before being a full participant Wednesday. With Week 15 being right in the middle of the fantasy playoffs, Jackson’s fantasy football owners need him starting and will surely be checking for updates until the official active/inactive is released. 

We’ll have updates below in the meantime and right up until kickoff. For more fantasy news, follow us on Twitter @SN_Fantasy.

Is Lamar Jackson playing Thursday night?

Every sign points to Jackson playing. Multiple reports indicated an improvement in Jackson’s movement from Monday to Tuesday at practice, and Jackson told reporters he’d just had a little scare after taking a hit to the quad on his 61-yard touchdown pass to Hayden Hurst last Sunday. 

WEEK 15 NON-PPR RANKINGS: 
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

After Tuesday’s practice, Jackson confirmed to reporters that he’ll play Thursday, saying “I’ll be out there Thursday night.”

If that wasn’t enough confirmation for you, Jackson’s full practice participation Wednesday basically sets it in stone. Barring some weird pregame tweak potentially stopping him from playing and forcing Robert Griffin III into a starting role, Jackson will be out there.

Regardless of whether Jackson can move around as well as he normally can, you’re starting him in every fantasy league once his active status is made official at about 6:50 p.m. ET on Thursday night.
