Ravens | Joe Flacco on board with Marc Trestman

Thu, 22 Jan 2015 09:43:49 -0800

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco will have his fourth difference offensive coordinator in as many years in offensive coordinator Marc Trestman. However, head coach John Harbaugh is confident Flacco will get along with Trestman after the quarterback was involved in the decision to hire Trestman in the first place. "I think personality-wise, they're going to hit it off really well. They've both very smart, they're both very detailed and they're both very direct in their communication," Harbaugh said.

Fantasy Tip: Flacco had the best season of his career under the tutelage of former offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak. With that said, Trestman has been known to have a knack for making QBs successful, but it'll still be hard for Flacco to repeat those numbers, especially if he loses some key offensive weapons this offseason.

Ravens | Joe Flacco's streak ends

Sat, 10 Jan 2015 17:33:10 -0800

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco threw for 292 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions in a 35-31 loss to the New England Patriots in the divisional-round playoff game Saturday, Jan. 10, snapping his streak of five straight playoff games without throwing an interception.

Fantasy Tip: Even with the two picks, Flacco's postseason numbers remain impressive. Over his last six playoff games, he has thrown 17 touchdowns compared to just two interceptions. He may be inconsistent during the regular season, but come playoff time, Flacco usually delivers for fantasy owners.

Ravens | Joe Flacco more aggressive in playoffs

Wed, 07 Jan 2015 12:39:05 -0800

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco has averaged 15.3 yards per completion in five straight playoff wins, a testament to how aggressive he is throwing downfield in the postseason. Additionally, Flacco has yet to be intercepted in the playoffs, throwing 166 straight passes without connecting with his opponent.

Fantasy Tip: Flacco has certainly succeeded in his postseason career, but the New England Patriots were better than average defending quarterbacks this year and Flacco threw nine of his 12 interceptions on the road in 2014.

Ravens | Joe Flacco will not avoid Darrelle Revis

Wed, 07 Jan 2015 11:53:25 -0800

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco said the team will not avoid throwing to the receiver that New England Patriots CB Darrelle Revis will be covering during the Divisional Round playoff game, because avoiding Revis could affect the team's performance. "I think as a play-caller, you have to just go out there, rely on your guys that you have that are out there, rely on the fact that they have ability," Flacco said. "And as a quarterback, you have to go out there and just go through your reads. And if he's open, throw it to him; if he's not, don't."

Fantasy Tip: Flacco threw for 259 yards and two touchdowns in the wild-card playoff game and has played well in the playoffs during his career. Flacco costs $6,800 on FantasyScore and could be an option for owners looking to save some money, but he should be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback this week.

Ravens | Joe Flacco good at drawing interference

Wed, 07 Jan 2015 10:33:49 -0800

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco has drawn 15 defensive pass interference penalties this year, which was the most by any quarterback. He has drawn 78 penalties since coming into the league in 2008, which is the most by an NFL quarterback in that span. Eleven of the 15 accepted penalties this year came on throws more than 15 yards downfield, and a common theme on those passes were underthrown balls. The Ravens have scored 56 points this year after an accepted pass interference penalty.

Fantasy Tip: Flacco ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) is a cheap QB option at FantasyScore this weekend, but he'll face a stiff test in the New England Patriots' revamped secondary. His upside in daily games is limited.

Ravens | Steve Smith has little success against Revis

Tue, 06 Jan 2015 09:59:21 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith has been held to just two catches for 21 yards in three games when he's been matched up against New England Patriots CB Darrelle Revis in his career, according to Pro Football Focus. QB Joe Flacco has thrown Revis' way a total of three times out of 164 snaps against the Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear exactly who Revis will be covering this weekend, but it would make more sense for him to be matched up with Steve Smith. That doesn't make Smith an attractive FantasyScore option, and Flacco shouldn't be high on your list for QBs, either.

Ravens | Joe Flacco excels in playoffs

Mon, 05 Jan 2015 09:08:15 -0800

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco is now 10-4 in the playoffs in his career after beating the Pittsburgh Steelers in the wild-card playoff round this weekend, and he's recorded seven of those wins on the road, which is two more than any other quarterback in NFL history. Flacco has tossed 13 touchdown passes and no interceptions in his last five playoff games. "Joe Flacco, what can you say," head coach John Harbaugh said. "He's the best quarterback in football. We'll take him any day of the week, twice on Sunday or Saturday if that be the case."

Fantasy Tip: Flacco had a nice matchup against the Steelers in the wild-card round. Facing the New England Patriots in the divisional round won't be as easy, if you were considering him for your FantasyScore lineups. Temper your expectations a bit more this weekend.

Ravens | Joe Flacco preparing for pressure

Thu, 01 Jan 2015 05:51:01 -0800

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco was sacked four times and hit 10 times Sunday, Nov. 2, during the 43-23 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 9. "They do a good amount of things, and they try to put pressure on the quarterback," Flacco said.

Fantasy Tip: The Steelers finished 27th in pass defense during the regular season and allowed 30 touchdowns through the air. Flacco ($7,600, 15.2% of cap) threw four touchdowns against Pittsburgh this season and posted passer ratings of 109.3 and 91.2 in their two meetings. Consider him a solid option in FantasyScore contests, and he is priced reasonably.
