Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco (neck) and LB Corey Nelson (biceps) were placed on the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Nov. 1. The team also signed practice squad QB Brett Rypien and LB Josh Watson to the 53-man roster.
The Denver Broncos placed quarterback Joe Flacco (neck) on season-ending Injured Reserve on Friday, according to a source. Backup Brandon Allen will start in Week 9 against the Browns, with the team promoting Brett Rypien from the practice squad. The 34-year-old Flacco was a failed experiment for Denver, as he looked done in 2019. He was putrid in eight games, going 171-for-262 (65.3 percent) for 1,822 yards, six touchdowns and five interceptions. It's likely his only season in Denver. Allen might not prove to be much better, though, which hurts the fantasy upside of everyone involved in this offense, most notably wide receiver Courtland Sutton.
Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco (neck) and LB Corey Nelson (bicep) will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Nov. 1.
Fantasy Spin: Barring an unlikely return from IR in December, Flacco's season is done. This leaves the untested Brandon Allen as the team's starting QB for the foreseeable future with rookie Brett Rypien serving as the backup until second-round pick Drew Lock is ready to come off IR himself.
Denver Broncos CB Bryce Callahan (foot), QB Joe Flacco (neck), TE Jeff Heuerman (knee), OT Ja'Wuan James (knee), LB Corey Nelson (biceps) and S Will Parks (hand) didn't practice Thursday, Oct. 31. LB Todd Davis (knee/hip), LB Von Miller (knee), LB Joseph Jones (ribs), G Dalton Risner (ankle) and DE DeMarcus Walker (shoulder) were limited. G Ronald Leary (non-injury) and LB Justin Hollins (knee) practice in full.
Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco (neck) could be placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a neck injury, and head coach Vic Fangio said a decision on that could be coming in the next few days.
Fantasy Spin: It's not looking promising for Flacco or the Broncos' pass-catchers as we're likely to have untested QBs Brandon Allen and Drew Lock under center for the rest of the fantasy season.
After a second opinion on the bulging disc in his neck, Denver Broncos quarterback Joe Flacco (neck) is expected to be out four to six weeks, according to a source. Flacco isn't expected to need surgery, but at this point it seems like a long shot that he'll play again in 2019, especially with the Broncos nowhere near playoff contention. It's also likely to be Flacco's only season in Denver. Backup Brandon Allen is taking over moving forward, but rookie Drew Lock (thumb) could make some starts to close out the year if he's fully healthy. Allen is not a realistic QB2 option, and his presence under center isn't good news for No. 1 wideout Courtland Sutton.
Denver Broncos CB Bryce Callahan (foot), LB Todd Davis (hip, knee), QB Joe Flacco (neck), TE Jeff Heuerman (knee), OT Ja'Wuan James (knee), LB Von Miller (knee), LB Corey Nelson (biceps) and S Will Parks (hand) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 30. LB Joseph Jones (ribs), OG Ronald Leary (non-injury), OG Dalton Risner (ankle) and DE DeMarcus Walker (shoulder) were limited during practice. LB Justin Hollins (knee) fully participated in practice.
Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco (neck) could be out five or six weeks, and he'll receive a second opinion. Surgery is unlikely, and his career is not in jeopardy.
Fantasy Spin: The team has been unwilling to consider putting Drew Lock under center, but an extended absence for Flacco could accelerate that process. Flacco wasn't worth using except in two-quarterback leagues. Lock is a long-term chip that has little value in single-year formats. Brandon Allen is expected to start this week and has no value except as a cheap DFS flyer.
Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco (neck) is still being evaluated for his neck injury, and the team is strongly considering placed him on the season-ending Reserve/Injured list.
Fantasy Spin: Flacco has officially been ruled out for Week 9, so Brandon Allen will make the start. Drew Lock is also on the roster and is the future in the Mile High City. If you have been using Flacco for fantasy purposes to this point, it's time to cut bait whether he lands on IR or not.
Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco (neck) is dealing with a herniated disc in his neck, according to a source.
Fantasy Spin: Flacco is expected to miss at least one week because of the injury and could miss more depending on the severity. Brandon Allen will be the starting quarterback in Week 9 but should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.
Denver Broncos quarterback Joe Flacco (neck) will not play against the Cleveland Browns in Week 9, according to head coach Vic Fangio. Backup quarterback Brandon Allen will make his first career start in the contest. The Broncos possess one of the worst passing attacks in football, and that will only become more evident with Allen under center. Unless you are incredibly desperate for another signal-caller in two-quarterback leagues, fade Allen in fantasy formats. As for Flacco, his status for the remainder of the season will likely be announced sometime during the Broncos' Week 10 bye.
Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco (neck) has been ruled out for Week 9 against the Cleveland Browns with a neck injury, according to head coach Vic Fangio.
Fantasy Spin: Second-round pick Drew Lock isn't considered ready to play quarterback in the NFL quite yet by this regime, leaving only Brandon Allen and practice-squader Brett Rypien as candidates to make the start against the Browns. Allen should be considered the favorite, although it's hard to get overly excited about Allen after he was claimed off waivers from the Los Angeles Rams late this summer. While Flacco hasn't done much with Denver, Allen's temporary promotion figures to be a downgrade for the entire offense.
Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco (neck) was dealing with a neck ailment after the game Sunday, Oct. 27.
Fantasy Spin: There's no word on the severity, but Flacco shouldn't see lineups except in two-quarterback leagues.
Denver Broncos quarterback Joe Flacco struggled on Sunday afternoon in the Broncos loss to the Indianapolis Colts, The veteran quarterback has continued to disappoint in his debut season with the Broncos, as today he threw for only 174 yards on 20-of-32 passing, alongside no touchdowns. It is becoming clear that Flacco is not going to provide any outstanding production and he should be disregarded for fantasy purposes moving forward.
Denver Broncos quarterback Joe Flacco holds little fantasy value at the moment, and losing one of his better wide receivers this week in Emmanuel Sanders did not help Flacco's stock. The veteran quarterback has struggled all season long and signs do not point to him producing fantasy points anytime soon. Even with a matchup against a Colts Defense that has let up some big games this year, the Colts have also shown the ability to clamp down on struggling quarterbacks and will look to do that again against Flacco in Week 8. For the time being, Flacco should be on benches or waivers in most leagues.
Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco is not in danger of losing his starting job yet despite head coach Vic Fangio's statement Friday, Oct. 18, that he would 'consider major changes on offense,' according to Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic.
Denver Broncos head coach Vic Fangio said he's considering major changes on offense after the blowout loss to the Chiefs on Thursday night, but moving away from quarterback Joe Flacco is not one of them. The main reason is that current backup Brandon Allen wouldn't be a realistic solution. However, rookie Drew Lock is nearing a return from his injury and will be a viable alternative later in the year if Flacco continues to look terrible under center. The 34-year-old has shown that he has basically nothing left. He's gone over 300 yards passing in a game just once this year and has six touchdowns and five interceptions in seven games. Flacco is a low-end QB2 with pretty much no upside.
Denver Broncos quarterback Joe Flacco finished with 213 yards on 21-for-34 passing in the blowout loss to Kansas City on Thursday. The veteran wasn't able to get anything going as the Chiefs Defense recorded nine sacks on the night, with eight of them going to Flacco. Though the former Raven has maintained a career-best 65.7 completion percentage, he has thrown for just six touchdowns to go along with five picks on the year. With this loss in the books, the Broncos will look to get on track against the Colts in Week 8 but continue to expect to see Flacco as a free agent in a majority of fantasy leagues, and for a good reason.
Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco completed 21 of his 34 passes for 213 yards and was sacked eight times in a 30-6 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 7. He also lost a fumble.
Fantasy Spin: Flacco never had a chance in what seemed like a decent matchup on paper. It was the third time this year he has failed to throw a single touchdown, and he has only thrown more than one touchdown in one of the six games. He isn't even worth owning in two-quarterback leagues.
Denver Broncos quarterback Joe Flacco has had a rough start to his 2019 season with the Broncos and at this point is finding himself on very few fantasy rosters. While his matchup with Kansas City isn't all that daunting, Flacco needs to prove that he has the ability to put up points consistently before he is a matchup based play. This is a good test week to see what the veteran quarterback can do against a weak secondary, but he shouldnt be starting on rosters this week.
