Player Notes
Feb 18 8:53pm ET

Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco (neck) recently got good news after undergoing an MRI. As a result, he is expected to be physically cleared to return to action this season, although there is some question as to whether or not he will be back with Denver, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

From TheHuddle

Feb 18 8:20pm ET

An MRI exam taken on Denver Broncos quarterback Joe Flacco (back) last week showed encouraging results, but his agent, Joe Linta, is seeking a second opinion from spine specialist Dr. Andrew Dossett. "Joe has every intention to play but not at the risk of his long-term health," Linta said Tuesday. Flacco went on season-ending Injured Reserve with a bulging disc in his neck after the team's eighth game of last season. The veteran QB has two years at $20.25 million and $24.25 million left on his contract, which will be way too high as a backup quarterback. The Broncos could either restructure Flacco's contract, trade him or release him. The 35-year-old would be Drew Lock's backup in Denver if he stays, and he'd be auditioning for a backup job on the open market as well, most likely.

Feb 7 12:43pm ET

Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco (neck) might need offseason surgery to deal with the herniated disc in his neck and has said he'd be open to remaining with the team a backup, but new offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur said there's much remaining up in the air with Flacco. 'I don't know, and I wouldn't get into that in this setting,' Shurmur said Thursday, Feb. 6. 'I'm just getting to know the players, the ones that were here a year ago, and I'm not sure who's going to be here moving forward. I think (Flacco has) had an outstanding career. I thought he did a lot of good things last year, but unfortunately he was injured and couldn't finish the season.'

Fantasy Spin: If Flacco, 35, isn't at the end of his run as an NFL starter, it's awfully close, and don't be surprised if the Broncos cut him loose this offseason and opt for a cheaper backup.

From TheHuddle

Dec 30 5:40pm ET

Denver Broncos quarterback Joe Flacco (neck) said he is expected to undergo an MRI exam next month to determine if he will need surgery to fix a herniated disc in his neck. Flacco will also decide at that time if he'll continue his playing career. The veteran quarterback is open to returning in 2020 as the backup to Drew Lock. Flacco will be 35 next month, and he made it just eight games in his first season with Denver before being ruled out for the season. He was a very mediocre game manager in his time under center, going 171-for-262 (65.3 percent) for 1,822 yards, six touchdowns and five interceptions. Flacco's days of fantasy relevance are long gone.

Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco (neck) is expected to undergo an MRI next month to determine whether or not he'll need surgery on his injured neck. Flacco also told reporters Monday, Dec. 30, that he would be open to returning to the Broncos as Drew Lock's backup but also hinted about the possibility he could retire if the results of the MRI are not positive.

Nov 1 8:43pm ET

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.

From TheHuddle

Nov 1 3:00pm ET

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.

Nov 1 2:53pm ET

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.

From TheHuddle

Oct 31 2:33pm ET

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.

From TheHuddle

Oct 31 2:20pm ET

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.

From TheHuddle

Oct 29 10:43am ET

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.

From TheHuddle

Oct 28 10:13pm ET

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.

From TheHuddle

Oct 28 6:33pm ET

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.

From TheHuddle

Oct 28 3:00pm ET

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.

From RotoBaller

Oct 28 2:53pm ET

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.

From TheHuddle

Oct 28 8:53am ET

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.

From TheHuddle

Oct 27 8:40pm ET

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.

From RotoBaller

Oct 24 7:10pm ET

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.
