Bold Predictions: Ravens QB Lamar Jackson Throws For 4,000 Yards
To this point, Lamar Jackson has more NFL MVPs than he does 4,000-yard seasons through the air. For those keeping score at home, that is a whopping 1 to 0. But the Ravens parted ways with offensive coordinator Greg Roman this offseason, paving the way for Todd Monken to step in and revolutionize the passing attack.
During his previous stints in the NFL and his most recent tenure with the Georgia Bulldogs, Monken has earned the billing of a brilliant offensive mind. He made Stetson Bennett a Heisman Trophy finalist and was a key factor in Bennett getting drafted so highly this past April.
Monken accepted the challenge of building around Jackson in a way that differs from Roman’s scheme. To help smooth over this transition, the Ravens front office signed Odell Beckham Jr. to a lucrative one-year deal and used a first-round pick on Zay Flowers out of Boston College. Assuming Rashod Bateman and Mark Andrews are also at 100 percent, Lamar is poised for his best season as a passer. Put him down for 4,000 yards.
