Ravens S Eric Weddle says Joe Flacco has looked good early in the offseason program.
Flacco was recovering from knee surgery this time last year, and while the injury did not force him to miss any games, he did post some of the worst efficiency numbers of his career. Now healthy, Weddle expects Flacco to be "10 times better," and Flacco thinks getting in work this early in the offseason will give him "a better foundation." Hopefully, it will also allow him to be more aggressive and push the ball down the field. Apr 20 - 9:00 AM

Joe Flacco said he is happy the Ravens retained OC Marty Mornhinweg.

Flacco said the offense was too "conservative" in November, but it does not sound like he puts all of the blame at Mornhinweg's feet. "I think the other thing you have to realize is that a lot of what we’ve been doing isn’t necessarily his offense," Flacco said. "I think this offseason will be a big point for him to get a lot of the stuff that he’s comfortable running. He and I can work through that stuff together. I think that’s the biggest thing." The Ravens need to improve the running game and find playmakers which allow them to be more aggressive in the passing game, but Flacco also needs to play better for the offense to take a step forward.

Speaking about Joe Flacco on Tuesday, Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti said "we need more out of Joe."

"I think Joe would agree with that," Bisciotti helpfully added. Coming back from a torn ACL, Flacco actually threw for a career-high 4,317 yards in 2016, but only because he was forced to dial up an absurd 672 attempts. That's not Ravens football. Flacco struggled mightily to make big plays, and averaged a woeful 6.42 yards per attempt. The first year back from a torn ACL can be tough for a quarterback — even Tom Brady wasn't quite himself in 2009 — but days shy of his 32nd birthday, Flacco will be on the spot to be better next season.
Jan 10 - 1:48 PM

Joe Flacco completed 32-of-49 passes for 267 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception in the Ravens' Week 17 loss to the Bengals.

It was a performance typical of Flacco's throughout his return-from-ACL campaign, averaging a low yards per attempt and failing to make big plays. Flacco's age-31 season ends with a 20:15 TD-to-INT ratio. The Ravens oddly utilized a short-based timing-and-rhythm passing game, rarely challenging deep. Flacco will return as a low-end QB2 in 2017. After firing OC Marc Trestman during the year, the Ravens are also expected to fire interim OC Marty Mornhinweg, forcing Flacco to learn yet another offensive system.
Jan 1 - 4:10 PM

Joe Flacco completed 30-of-44 passes for 262 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Ravens' Week 16 loss to the Steelers.

Flacco was just a bit off early in the game, misplacing what should have been a touchdown to Breshad Perriman in the first quarter and throwing behind Dennis Pitta on what should have been another touchdown just before halftime. He looked better after a Ben Roethlisberger interception to start the second half, however. Flacco put a nice ball on Steve Smith Sr. for the Ravens’ first touchdown of the game to capitalize on that mistake, and he hit Smith again for the two-point conversion. In the fourth, Flacco was sharp on a 14-play touchdown drive which gave the Ravens the lead, but Roethlisberger was able to lead a touchdown drive of his own to take the win and the AFC North crown. Now out of the playoffs, Flacco will look to end his season on a high note next week in Cincinnati.

Joe Flacco completed 16-of-30 passes for 206 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Ravens' Week 15 win over the Eagles.

It was a windy day in Baltimore, but Flacco still paid off as a high-floor fantasy start with two scores, the first from five yards out to Kamar Aiken and the second from 30-plus to Steve Smith. Flacco has played better lately, making him a confident Week 16 two-quarterback-league play at Pittsburgh.

Rotogrinders meteorologist Kevin Roth reports there are 20-plus MPH winds in the forecast for Sunday's Eagles-Ravens game.

Joe Flacco has a great matchup against a weak Philly pass defense, but weather could become an obstacle. Although there were initially fears of rain in this game, Roth says rain is "likely" but won't last all game and winds are more of a concern blowing at 20 miles per hour with 30-plus mile-per-hour gusts. Wind is what historically affects fantasy production the most.
Sun, Dec 18, 2016 11:01:00 AM

Joe Flacco completed 37-of-52 passes for 324 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Ravens' Week 14 loss to the Patriots.

Flacco has now thrown for well over 300 yards in back-to-back games, but he wasn't as good as the stats would suggest in this one. He was dinking and dunking his way through the game all night and was gift-wrapped both touchdowns on special teams blunders by the Patriots. Flacco's first score was a three-yarder to Darren Waller after Cyrus Jones muffed a punt inside his own five-yard line, giving the Ravens the ball. On the ensuing kickoff, Matthew Slater muffed the kick and set the Ravens up in the red zone. Flacco answered with a wide-open, eight-yard touchdown to Kenneth Dixon in the flat. Flacco couldn't get anything going downfield Monday night. He'll be a top-15 fantasy option next week at home against a disintegrating Eagles defense.
Tue, Dec 13, 2016 12:10:00 AM

Joe Flacco completed 36-of-47 passes for 381 yards with four touchdowns and one interception Sunday in the Ravens' Week 13 win over the Dolphins.

Flacco was surgical on Sunday. He got off to a magnificent start by completing six-of-seven passes to six different receivers on the Ravens’ opening drive. Flacco had his most success throwing to Dennis Pitta, who shredded Miami for 90 yards and two touchdowns. Flacco’s obligatory bad interception came on a play-action pass intended for Mike Wallace. It was a poor decision by Flacco but Wallace gave up on his route, which allowed Byron Maxwell to swoop in for an easy pick. Aside from that, Flacco could do no wrong. He flourished when the Ravens went no-huddle and attacked the middle of the field. Sunday represented his highest yardage output since Week 2 of last season. Flacco will be an option in two-quarterback leagues next week against New England.
Sun, Dec 4, 2016 04:49:00 PM

Joe Flacco completed 25-of-36 passes for 234 yards, one touchdown, and an interception in the Ravens' Week 13 loss to the Bengals.

He added 19 rushing yards on two scrambles. This was a typical 2016 game for Flacco: Very few big plays, a low yards-per-attempt average (6.5), and not much scoring. Baltimore eked out the victory 19-14. Set to face an upstart Dolphins defense in Week 13, Flacco will be a mere low-end two-quarterback-league play.
Sun, Nov 27, 2016 05:44:00 PM

Joe Flacco completed 23-of-35 passes for 269 yards and one touchdown in the Ravens' Week 11 loss to the Cowboys.

Flacco was sacked just once, but he's now been held to one or zero touchdowns in 7-of-9 starts. The Ravens ran just 52 offensive plays and were dominated in time of possession. That's just what the Cowboys do week in and week out. Flacco didn't make any mistakes, but Baltimore didn't have the ball enough. His touchdown was a five-yard hookup to Steve Smith. The Ravens will host the Bengals next week. Flacco won't be a recommended streaming option.
Sun, Nov 20, 2016 04:40:00 PM

Joe Flacco completed 30-of-41 passes for 296 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions and rushed once for three yards Thursday in the Ravens' Week 10 win over the Browns.

He was sacked twice for a loss of 19 yards. It was another mixed bag for Flacco, whose performances this year have ranged from competent to downright awful. The "downright awful" version of Flacco resurfaced in the first quarter on a poorly-thrown deep pass that was intercepted by Briean Boddy-Calhoun. It wasn’t all Flacco’s fault as Steve Smith Sr. inexplicably gave up on his route. Flacco was also picked by Joe Haden, which has been a frequent occurrence this year. Haden picked him twice when these teams met up in Week 2. Flacco did have some success in the second half, slinging touchdowns to Darren Waller, Smith and Breshad Perriman. He benefited from great field position as the Browns committed three second-half turnovers. Flacco won’t be more than a QB2 when the Ravens head to Dallas next week.

Joe Flacco completed 18-of-30 passes for 241 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the Ravens' 21-14, Week 9 win over the Steelers.

The touchdown was Flacco's first in three weeks. It was a simple slant that Mike Wallace took 95 yards to the house, out-running the corner before stiff-arming the safety. A good deal more of Flacco's yardage came on a Steve Smith Sr. catch and run. There was a scary moment when Flacco got his surgically-repaired knee rolled up, but he ended up only needing a new brace. Flacco simply has not been good this season, posting a Teddy Bridgewater-esque six passing scores in eight games. Even in next week's cake matchup against the Browns, he won't be a top-15 option.
Sun, Nov 6, 2016 04:47:00 PM

Joe Flacco (left knee) returned to Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Flacco hopped to the locker room after getting his foot caught in the turf on an awkward slide, but it was apparently to change out his knee brace. He returned after missing 2-3 plays. All is well.
Sun, Nov 6, 2016 03:02:00 PM

Joe Flacco completed 25-of-44 passes for 248 yards, no touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Ravens' Week 7 loss to the Jets.

In arguably the best matchup Flacco will get all year, he flopped. He was picked off twice in the second half and got no help from his receivers with the exception of Mike Wallace, lacking rhythm in the passing game and failing to execute in scoring position. Flacco has good matchups forthcoming against the Steelers and Browns, but his performance to date suggests he won't be a strong fantasy play. Flacco has consistently played poorly coming back from last year's torn ACL.
