Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is uncharacteristically having a problem with deflected passes. According to ESPN Stats and Information, Flacco has had 11 passes knocked down, which is tied for the most in the league this season. The 11th-year pro has never finished higher than 16th in passes batted in a season. He is coming off a so-so performance in Week 6 and ranks ninth in the league in passing yards, as he has attempted the second most passes in the league. Flacco is currently 18th in fantasy points among quarterbacks and has a low floor, but with a potentially appealing matchup against the Saints, he is a mid-to-high QB2 option.
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco connected on 25 of 37 passes for 238 yards to go along with one touchdown and an interception in a 21-0 victory over the Tennessee Titans. It marked the sixth game and ninth straight overall dating back to 2017 that he has completed at least 25 throws in a game. Flacco, who hooked up with seven different receivers in Week 6, also posted his second highest QBR score (84.2) of the season despite finishing with his second lowest yardage total. He came into the contest ranked 10th in the league in completions and third in attempts. As long as Flacco keeps slinging the ball around as much as has been, the 11-year veteran is a low-end QB1/high-end QB2 option.
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has been slinging the ball around at a career-high rate this season. Flacco, on pace to set a personal high in attempts, has thrown the second most passes in 2018 with 227. However, he is coming off the worst game of the current campaign in Week 5, as he completed just 51.8 percent of his 56 pass attempts for 298 yards and one interception. It marked the second time this year that the 33-year-old has failed to complete at least 60 percent of his passes, although it was the first game he went without a touchdown toss. Flacco has a tough matchup in Week 6 in the Tennessee Titans, who are permitting the eighth fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks. Still, the 11-year vet is a low-end QB2 this upcoming week, as he will likely continue his high-volume attempts.
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco had a rough day against the Cleveland Browns as the Ravens fell to the Browns 12-9. Flacco, who had eight touchdown passes coming into the game, failed to lead the 11th highest scoring offense into the end zone despite reaching the red zone three times. The 33-year-old was very inaccurate, as he connected on just 29 of 56 attempts for 298 yards along with a bad interception near the goal line. A few drops, namely by wide receiver Michael Crabtree, did not help his cause. The Ravens are now 0-5 over the last three years when Flacco has thrown 50 or more passes in a game. The 11-year veteran is still a solid QB2 option, as he is going to toss the ball around a lot and record a lot of yards.
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco completed 29-of-56 passes for 298 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns.
Fantasy Spin: The yardage total was OK from a fantasy perspective, but he was blanked in the touchdown department in a game which featured five field goals and just one offensive TD by Cleveland. He'll look for better results in Week 6 at Tennessee, but treat Flacco as more of a low-end QB2 in most fantasy leagues.
Cleveland Browns cornerback Damarious Randall (heel) is active for Week 5 against the Ravens. Randall has been a turnover machine for the Browns so far this year, and he'll help try to slow down Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, who has been playing like a man on a mission through four weeks so far in 2018.
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco's yards per pass attempt has jumped from 5.72 in 2017 to 7.32 this season, and he is on pace to set a new career high in passing yards.
Fantasy Spin: With better weapons at his disposal, Flacco is headed for one of the best seasons of his career and has emerged as a quality QB2 candidate.
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco had a solid first quarter of the season and will continue that trend against the Cleveland Browns in Week 5. Flacco has directed the Ravens to victory in six of their last seven meetings with the Browns, where he has averaged 263.2 passing yards per game while also tossing 12 touchdowns and six interceptions in those contests. He is 17-2-0 lifetime versus the Browns. This season, Flacco ranks eighth in the league with 313.0 yards a game, 14th in quarterback rating (96.7) and 12th in fantasy points among quarterbacks (19.3). The Browns defense is a formidable foe this season, ranking fifth in passer rating, sixth in completion percentage and third in interceptions. They also blitz a lot, which is not necessarily good news for Flacco. However, the 33-year-old vet is still a mid-tier QB2 for the upcoming week.
Baltimore Ravens' QB Joe Flacco scored 26.15 fantasy points in Sunday's Week 4 win in Pittsburgh. Flacco threw for 363 yards on 28-of-42 with two touchdowns.
Baltimore's QB Joe Flacco passed for 363 yards on 28-of-42 with two touchdowns in Sunday's win in Pittsburgh.
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco completed 28 of his 42 passes for 363 yards and two touchdowns in a 26-14 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 4.
Fantasy Spin: It was Flacco's second 300-yard effort of the year and his third game with multiple scores. With an upgraded receiving corps, he has become a viable QB2 option.
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is off to a great start to the 2018 campaign. He has tossed six touchdowns and twice posted quarterback ratings of 90 or above through the first three games, which is one-third of his last year's totals in each of those categories. The 33-year-old already has one more 300-yard game than he did in all of 2017. Flacco, who is averaging 18 fantasy points a game, has completed 63.6% of his passes this season for more than 298 yards as well as a pair of interceptions. The 11-year vet will look to continue his stellar play against the Pittsburgh Steelers, a team that he has not had much success against over the last three meetings. In those meetings, the Ravens have dropped all three contests as Flacco has thrown four touchdowns and four picks while averaging a tad more than 251 yards a game. However, the Steelers are ranked in the middle of the pack versus the pass in advanced statistics (DVOA and DAVE) and have given up 733 yards along with nine touchdowns via the air in the last two games combined. With the Ravens finally having a solid receiving corps and since the two teams are projected to combine for 50 points, Flacco is a solid QB2 option against the Steelers.
The Baltimore Ravens have signed center Hroniss Grasu to help bolster a struggling offensive line. The Ravens offensive line entered their Week 3 game against the Denver Broncos ranked 28th in the league overall and 30th in run blocking by Pro Football Focus. The O-line showed significant improvement against the Broncos as running backAlex Collins racked up a season-high 68 yards on 18 carries. They also protected quarterback Joe Flacco decently well, allowing two sacks and three quarterback hits. However, the Ravens produced just 2.8 yards per rushing attempt versus the Broncos and backup quarterback Lamar Jackson still has the team's longest run of the season (16 yards in Week 1). Grasu, selected in the third round of the 2015 draft, has had a difficult time on field as well as staying healthy. The 27-year-old has started 12 of his 14 career appearances. He finished ranked among the worst centers by Pro Football Focus in 2017. The Ravens waived defensive back Robertson Daniel, who was on the field for 10 special teams snaps in Week 3, to make room for Grasu. With the addition of Grasu, the Ravens now have three reserve offensive linemen on their 53-man roster.
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco threw 376 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions on 32-for-55 passing Thursday, Sept. 13, at the Cincinnati Bengals. Flacco also lost a fumble.
Fantasy Spin: The yardage and pair of scores were nice, but he lost a little luster in leagues that heavily deduct for turnovers. Flacco returns home for a Week 3 title with the Denver Broncos and should be closer to a reserve than a starter in fantasy leagues.
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is 100 percent healthy for the first time in three seasons, and it showed in Week 1. Against Buffalo in the season opener, Flacco looked more decisive, mobile and accurate than he has in a long time. He picked the Bills defense apart as he completed 25 of his 34 passes (73.5 completion percentage) for 234 yards and three scores. His performance in the opener is very good news for the Ravens, as he has not been very good lately. Over the last three seasons (2015-17), Flacco ranked No. 33 among NFL quarterbacks as he threw 52 touchdowns and 40 interceptions, although he did complete over 64 percent of his passes during this period. Part of Flacco's problem was health-related; he tore his ACL and MCL in his left knee, causing him to miss the last six games in 2015. The Delaware product missed all of spring practice in 2016 while recovering from the injury. Last season he was forced to sit out all of training camp and the preseason with a back injury. With an improved receiving corps and given the fact that Cincinnati's secondary is exploitable, Flacco should be in play for fantasy owners as a QB2 for Week 2.
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco completed 25-of-34 passes for 236 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 1 rout of the Buffalo Bills.
Fantasy Spin: Flacco spread it around to his new receivers, hitting newcomers John Brown, Michael Crabtree and Willie Snead with touchdown strikes. It's unlikely they'll post 47 points on a weekly basis, but the Baltimore offense looks to have a lot more weapons and therefore Flacco has a little more fantasy appeal than recent seasons. It's a quick turnaround for the Ravens, as they hit the road for Cincinnati on Thursday to kick off Week 2.
Despite the Baltimore Ravens decision to keep quarterback Robert Griffin III on their 53-man roster, Joe Flacco is locked in as the Ravens Week 1 starter against the Buffalo Bills. Flacco heads into the matchup facing one of the worst pass rushes in the league, according to Pro Football Focus, which ranks 31st in the league. With that said, with wide receiver Michael Crabtree facing a tough matchup on the outside along with an injury to first-round rookie Hayden Hurst, Flacco will be forced to stretch the field, utilizing his extra time in the pocket and possibly looking to utilize receiver John Brown's catch-and-run ability. Flacco is a back-end QB2 headed into Week 1.
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco continued his strong preseason showing on Monday night against the Colts. The veteran completed seven of his nine passes, including a touchdown strike to newly acquired wide receiver John Brown. Flacco has performed well in both of his preseason appearances, throwing for touchdowns in both. It is possible that Flacco has a new-found sense of motivation going into this season after the team drafted Lamar Jackson in the first-round to be the heir to their quarterback throne. Flacco is worth a flier for owners who wait on drafting a quarterback until late, as he has shown early chemistry with his new wide receivers and his offensive line is back at full strength.
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco finished 7-of-9 for 72 yards and one touchdown in Week 2 preseason action against the Indianapolis Colts on Monday, Aug. 20.
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has shown a renewed sense of vigor early on in camp, showing early chemistry with newly-acquired wide receivers John Brown and Michael Crabtree. The veteran quarterback has connected with Brown on multiple head-turning plays in practice, and while Crabtree has yet to flash his big-play ability, he's shown chemistry with his new quarterback through their communication early on. It's possible that the drafting of rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson added fuel to Flacco's fire, and the Ravens seem intent on letting the rookie earn his snaps rather than handing him the keys to the car. Flacco could be a late-round target with some big-play potential for owners who wait until the later rounds to select a quarterback.
