C.J. Beathard Leads Jaguars To A Much-Needed Win

Monday, January 1, 12:46 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback C.J. Beathard threw for 178 yards off 17-for-24 passing in Sunday's shutout win over the Carolina Panthers. He added three carries for 24 yards. The signal-caller didn't throw a touchdown pass. However, Beathard at least did enough to help the Jags snap a four-game losing streak. Jacksonville needs a win over the Titans in Week 18 to lock up a postseason berth. There's a chance Trevor Lawrence (shoulder) could be back, meaning Beathard will head back to the bench. Still, fantasy managers can't trust either quarterback, so Lawrence's availability versus the Titans won't mean a thing either way.

Lamar Jackson's OTA Absences Downplayed

Saturday, June 1, 1:25 PM

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson and the reigning NFL MVP has been absent for four of the team's first five voluntary organized team activities, including the last one on Thursday. With Jackson gone, veteran backup Josh Johnson has led the first-team offense. "It's this time of year; it's a voluntary time," head coach John Harbaugh said. "It's really not something that we comment on. We can't, and that's just the time of year it is. So I can't speak for anybody that's not here." Jackson has been a regular at the team's OTAs, other than in 2022 when he was engaged in contract talks. He's in the second year of a five-year, $260 million contract. At age 27 last year, he became the youngest two-time NFL MVP since the merger, setting career-highs with 3,678 passing yards and a 67.2% completion rate. Fantasy managers shouldn't be concerned about Jackson's OTA absences.
