Ravens | Joe Flacco sets historic new low

Wed, 29 Nov 2017 20:11:23 -0800

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco became the first quarterback in NFL history to register 10 career games in which he averaged 4.5 yards or less per pass attempt (minimum 30 attempts) with his performance in the team's Week 12 game Monday, Nov. 27, opposite the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: It hasn't been a pretty season for Flacco, who currently owns the second-lowest QB Rating (74.2) of his 10-year career, and also has more interceptions than touchdowns for the second time in his career as well. Furthermore, he's averaging fewer than 200 passing yards per game for the first time since his rookie campaign. While Flacco has a shot of getting his real team into the postseason, that certainly won't be the case for fantasy owners that attempt to lean on him down the stretch.

Ravens | Joe Flacco throws for 183 yards

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 13:00:44 -0800

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco went 22-for-28 for 183 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the Green Bay Packers in Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Flacco has been held to under 200 yards in four of the last five games but does have five touchdowns during that span. He will be facing the Houston Texans in Week 12, but owners in most leagues should be able to find better starting options.

Ravens | Joe Flacco wants to air it out

Thu, 09 Nov 2017 19:27:43 -0800

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco said the offense needs to be more aggressive going forward. "We need to go after it," Flacco said Wednesday, Nov. 8. "We got to go attack."

Fantasy Tip: Flacco ranks last in the NFL in yards per pass attempt, and his 10 interceptions are tied for the third most. Attempting a few more deep balls certainly can't hurt his numbers, but Flacco isn't likely to move out of low-end QB2 territory any time soon.

Ravens | Joe Flacco throws for season-high 261

Sun, 05 Nov 2017 18:17:56 -0800

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco completed 34 of his 52 passes for a season-high 261 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in a 23-20 loss to the Tennessee Titans in Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: Flacco had to throw the ball early and often after the Ravens fell behind, but he still finished with a mediocre line. He has just eight touchdowns compared to 10 interceptions for the year, and he will be a low-end QB2 when Baltimore returns from its bye against the Green Packers in Week 11.

Ravens | Joe Flacco expected to start in Week 9

Sun, 05 Nov 2017 05:40:21 -0800

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (concussion) is expected to start Week 9's game against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: Flacco was listed as questionable on the injury report despite being a full practice participant for all three practice sessions during the week. Although he has a somewhat favorable matchup, Flacco's statistical performances have been mediocre this season and he should be regarded as a QB2 in all fantasy formats.

Thu, 02 Nov 2017 15:22:25 -0700

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (concussion) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Flacco appears to be on track to play in Week 9 and will be facing a decent Tennessee Titans pass defense. He has not posted great numbers this season and should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in all leagues.

Wed, 01 Nov 2017 14:53:42 -0700

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (concussion) was able to take part in a full practice session Wednesday, Nov. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Barring any setbacks it appears Flacco is set to start under center in Week 9 against the Tennessee Titans. It's a semi-favorable matchup against the league's 19th ranked pass defense, but Flacco is still more of a QB2 in most fantasy leagues.

Wed, 01 Nov 2017 13:33:51 -0700

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (concussion) was back on the field for the practice session open to the media Wednesday, Nov. 1. It remains to be seen whether he was a full or limited participant for the entire session.

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (concussion) is not dealing with any concussion symptoms and appears to have a good chance to play in Week 9, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor Flacco's practice participation this week to see if he is on track to play in Week 9. He would be facing a decent Tennessee Titans defense if he is able to play and is not a great option in most fantasy leagues.

Thu, 26 Oct 2017 19:19:00 -0700

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (concussion) will not return against the Miami Dolphins Thursday, Oct. 26, after being diagnosed with a concussion.

Fantasy Tip: If the injury forces Flacco to miss any additional games, it could lead to a few more carries for Javorius Allen and Alex Collins as the Ravens try to take some pressure off backup quarterback Ryan Mallett.

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (head) exited against the Miami Dolphins Thursday, Oct. 26, after taking a blow to the head. He went to the locker room and was replaced by QB Ryan Mallett.

Fantasy Tip: The Ravens' offense was already sputtering, and if Flacco misses extended time, it is going to be tough to justify starting any of Baltimore's receivers.

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 13:27:58 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Flacco threw his first touchdown in three games but has not thrown for more than 235 yards in any game this season. He has five touchdowns and eight interceptions in 2017 and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

Ravens | Joe Flacco has bumpy ride in loss

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 18:45:13 -0700

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco completed 31 of his 49 pass attempts for 235 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the Week 5 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Flacco was also sacked four times, as the Steelers the pressure all day long. The good news is that Flacco developed a nice rapport with Mike Wallace, connecting for a score, and that could be a valuable asset going forward. The Ravens travel to meet the Raiders in Week 5.

Ravens | Joe Flacco out of game

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 09:06:20 -0700

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco was pulled in the fourth quarter of the team's Week 3 game and has been replaced by QB Ryan Mallett.

Fantasy Tip: Flacco struggled against the Jacksonville Jaguars, posted only 28 yards passing in the game and threw two interceptions. It is not known if Flacco is in any danger of losing his starting job, so owners should monitor the situation. Flacco likely is a No. 2 quarterback in most leagues and should not be in starting lineups.

Ravens | Joe Flacco tosses pair of touchdowns

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 16:50:29 -0700

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco completed 25 of his 34 pass attempts for 217 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Week 2 against the Browns.

Fantasy Tip: Flacco looked a lot more comfortable in the offense this week after he was a bit rusty in Week 1 after missing time due to a disc issue in his back. He'll look to keep it going in Week 3 against the Jaguars, but keep in mind he has a long flight to London for that game and his back could lock up on the journey. He is a risky play for that one.

Ravens | Joe Flacco pleased with recovery

Wed, 13 Sep 2017 08:33:01 -0700

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (back) said he came out of the Week 1 game well, and he is pleased with his back's progress.

Fantasy Tip: Flacco had a very futile game statistically, and he has very little upside in fantasy at this point except as a backup. He does play the lowly Cleveland Browns, but there are greener pastures.

Ravens | Joe Flacco doesn't do much in win

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 18:24:24 -0700

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco completed nine of his 17 pass attempts for 121 yards, a touchdown and an interception in the Week 1 win in Cincinnati.

Fantasy Tip: It was Flacco's first game action since returning from a disc issue in his back. His stat line was rather pedestrian, and you can likely expect him to do very little until he starts to knock off the rust. He should be treated as more of a QB2 heading into Week 2 against the Browns.

Ravens | Joe Flacco off injury report

Fri, 08 Sep 2017 11:09:33 -0700

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco was a full participant in practice all week and did not appear on the team's final injury report of the week.

Fantasy Tip: He did not play in the preseason due to a back injury. Flacco is about as unexciting of fantasy quarterback option as there is, but at least his health should make it easier for Jeremy Maclin, Mike Wallace and Danny Woodhead to live up to their ADPs. Consider the 32-year-old signal-caller a QB2 for fantasy purposes.

Ravens | Joe Flacco practices Thursday

Thu, 07 Sep 2017 15:39:18 -0700

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (back) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Flacco may be a little rusty in Week 1 since he did not play in the preseason but will have a solid group of pass catchers to work with on offense. Flacco should be a No. 2 quarterback in most leagues and probably can stay on the bench this week.

Wed, 06 Sep 2017 08:31:04 -0700

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (back) said his back is feeling good Wednesday, Sept. 6, and he didn't receive an injection to assist with the recovery. Head coach John Harbaugh said Flacco has responded well to the first couple of days of practice.

Fantasy Tip: Flacco is little more than a depth QB in fantasy for now. If the weapons around him blossom, he could return to the low-end QB1 discussion.

Sat, 02 Sep 2017 12:09:44 -0700

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (back) participated in practice Saturday, Sept. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Flacco appears to be on track to play in Week 1, but owners should check on his status during practice next week. Flacco will have a solid group of receivers to work with but should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

Ravens | Joe Flacco nearing return to practice

Tue, 29 Aug 2017 09:35:07 -0700

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (back) has resumed throwing and will likely practice in the coming days, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Fantasy Tip: Flacco has established himself as a league-average quarterback, but he at least gives the Ravens' skill-position players a fighting chance, unlike Ryan Mallett. Considering Flacco has only missed six starts - all due to a 2015 torn ACL - since becoming Baltimore's quarterback in 2008, he should be counted on to be under center for Week 1 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Ravens | Joe Flacco to play Week 1?

Sat, 26 Aug 2017 20:54:00 -0700

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (back) will be ready to play in Week 1, head coach John Harbaugh said Saturday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Flacco is more important to Baltimore's success than the success of fantasy teams. Even if he is on the field in Week 1, he is no more than a midrange QB2.

Ravens | Joe Flacco ruled out for another week

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 12:18:02 -0700

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (back) will not return until Sunday, Aug. 27, at the earliest, according to ESPN's Jamison Hensley.

Fantasy Tip: Mike Wallace did not seem the least bit concerned about his quarterback's readiness for Week 1 in his interview with Hensley, so we'll have to take his word for it for now. Flacco is an established low-end veteran quarterback who shouldn't need much prep time, but back injuries are almost always tricky. Owners can avoid him in most non-two quarterback or superflex leagues.

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (back) is not expected to practice this week because the team is sticking to their timeline for him, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Fantasy Tip: Flacco will not play in the preseason but could return to practice in a week or two. He is expected to be ready for the start of the regular season as long as he does not suffer a setback and should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

Ravens | Joe Flacco to sit out preseason

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 13:22:02 -0700

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (back) is expected to return to practice at some point during the preseason but will not play in any of the preseason games. The team said that Flacco is making good progress in his rehab and should be ready to play in Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Flacco has about a month before the start of the season, so he should have a good amount of practice time before he plays in a game. He will have a decent receiving corps to work with this season and also has Danny Woodhead out of the backfield. He should be considered a low-end No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

Ravens | No timetable for Joe Flacco

Sun, 06 Aug 2017 13:56:52 -0700

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (back) is feeling better every day but there is still no timetable for his return, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Fantasy Tip: Flacco probably will miss some preseason games but should be on the field for the start of the regular season. He has thrown for at least 3,900 yards in three of the last four seasons and will be working with a decent group of receivers this season. Flacco should only be considered a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Wed, 02 Aug 2017 18:37:01 -0700

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Flacco likely will receive snaps during the preseason as long as he does not suffer a setback. Flacco will have a solid receiver corps to work with this season but should only be a No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

Tue, 01 Aug 2017 15:40:42 -0700

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (back) is feeling better in regards to his ailing back, according to a source. It remains unclear when Flacco will return to action.

Fantasy Tip: The Ravens have already suffered more than their fair share of injuries this year, so it's nice to see Flacco progressing. That being said, Flacco is a perennial backup fantasy quarterback, even with a solid corps of weapons around him.

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (back) is likely due back "soon" and will "definitely" return at some point during the preseason, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds as though the Ravens have no concerns about Flacco's Week 1 status, although the team would be foolish not to address their quarterback situation considering Ryan Mallett is the next-best option on the team. At any rate, Flacco is an uninspiring QB2 choice in fantasy.

Ravens | BAL committing week of rest for Joe Flacco

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 19:09:51 -0700

Updating previous reports, the Baltimore Ravens are "committing to a week of rest" for QB Joe Flacco (back) in hopes that will calm the symptoms down. He'll be shut down during that time and then be re-evaluated.

Fantasy Tip: This latest development could point to an earlier-than-anticipated return for Baltimore's franchise quarterback, meaning he might only miss a couple of weeks of action during training camp. Either way, it looks like Flacco will be fine by the time the season kicks off in more than a month, though he shouldn't really be considered a QB1 option in standard leagues going into the new campaign.

Ravens | Joe Flacco may miss up to six weeks

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 17:59:01 -0700

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (back) is preparing to miss three to six weeks because of a disc issue in his back, according to sources. Flacco will miss at least a week or two because of the injury.

Fantasy Tip: Flacco could be questionable for the start of the regular season if his recovery is closer to six weeks, so owners will need to keep an eye on the situation. Flacco could be a No. 2 quarterback in some fantasy leagues, but owners may want to look for healthier options to use.

Ravens | Joe Flacco may be limited early

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 17:22:14 -0700

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (back) is dealing with back soreness and may be limited during the first few days of training camp, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like Flacco is dealing with a minor injury and should be a full participant in a week or two. He threw for 4,317 yards and 20 touchdowns in 2016 but also had 15 interceptions. He will have a solid group of pass catchers this season but should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in deeper leagues.

Baltimore Ravens RB Danny Woodhead was a frequent target of QB Joe Flacco during practice Thursday, June 1, and Woodhead was used in a variety of ways throughout the session.

Fantasy Tip: Woodhead is as dangerous as any back in the passing game, and he has been effective in the red zone throughout his career. He is a RB3 candidate in standard leagues and a potential RB2 in PPR formats.

Ravens | Joe Flacco will continue to wear brace

Wed, 19 Apr 2017 11:53:04 -0700

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco said he will continue to wear a knee brace in order to protect his surgically repaired knee.

Fantasy Tip: Flacco threw for a career-best 4,317 yards in 2016 with 20 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. He will not have Steve Smith next season but should have a decent receiving corps and several options at tight end. Owners in all leagues should consider Flacco as a low-end No. 2 quarterback.

Ravens | Joe Flacco could have highest cap figure

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 22:53:19 -0800

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco would become the player with the highest salary cap figure in the NFL for 2017 should Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo get cut or traded this offseason. Flacco is scheduled to count $24.55 million against the cap.

Fantasy Tip: Flacco is coming off two straight unspectacular seasons, as while he did register a career high in passing yards (4,317) in 2016, the fact remains he had just 20 touchdowns versus 15 interceptions, while the year prior, he had 14 touchdowns compared to 12 picks in 10 games. Certainly, Flacco has to step up his game considerably if he wants to enter the QB1 discussion again.
