I’d say Cam is definitely in that conversation. He is the most prolific and productive rushing QB in the history of the NFL and we all know his passing game leaves much to be desired. And I think Jackson is worse than Cam on both accounts.
I’m not going to say that Jackson will be a slot WR because he’s still a rookie and only has 2 games under his belt so its not fair to judge his entire future prospects on 2 games when he has no reliable passing weapons to speak of and on a team that primarily relies on defense to win games. It’s too early to say whether he will succeed as a QB in the NFL, even Vick sat the bench first before he could produce in the NFL.
My comments above was more so directed at all these so called “experts” conducting the Lamar Jackson hype train calling him a “league winner” for fantasy purposes. Give me a break. Watch football and you’ll realize that points this season come from pocket passers on high scoring offenses. For example Mahomes, brees, goff, Big Ben, Rivers, etc. Even the guys in that group that can rush like Mahomes still score primarily through the air. That’s what the rules are designed for. Not some guy that may or may not rush for 50-60 yards a game and not even crack 200 yards passing.
I feel bad for anyone who listened to that advice and actually started Jackson over real QBs like Mayfield lol.
