Joe Flacco completed 16-of-25 passes for 258 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Ravens' Week 7 win over the Falcons.
He only took one sack against Atlanta's lifeless pass rush. Flacco was picked twice, as Torrey Smith got out-muscled for one. Falcons RCB Robert Alford caught both interceptions, but Flacco and Torrey came back to beat Alford for the game-sealing TD from 39 yards out in the fourth quarter. Flacco will continue to live on the borderline QB1 fringe in Week 8 against the Bengals. Oct 19 - 4:17 PM

Date:

Winds in Baltimore Sunday are gusting to 30 mph for Falcons at Ravens.

Windy conditions scare us far more than rain or snow. Gusts as high as 30 mph have been proven to strongly affect passing games, particularly in yards per attempt. We'd use this info to break close lineup decisions.
Oct 19 - 12:09 PM

Joe Flacco completed 21-of-29 passes for 306 yards, five touchdowns, and zero interceptions in the Ravens' 48-17, Week 6 rout of the Bucs.

Coach John Harbaugh and Flacco talked how they were going to focus on getting Torrey Smith more involved after a very disappointing first month of the season. They weren't lying, as Flacco found Smith for back-to-back touchdowns on the Ravens' first two possessions. Flacco later found Kamar Aiken, Michael Campanaro, and Steve Smith Sr. for scores in the first half. The rout was on, and the Ravens took the foot off the gas in the second half. Flacco and the Ravens will host the Falcons next week in another tasty matchup for Baltimore's passing game.
Oct 12 - 4:13 PM

Joe Flacco completed 22-of-38 passes for 235 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception in the Ravens' Week 5, 20-13 loss to the Colts.

Missing LT Eugene Monroe (knee), Flacco was harassed by a Colts defense that normally starves for pass-rush production. He was sacked four times for 38 yards. Flacco and Torrey Smith continue to struggle with their connection. Smith was targeted eight times on the day, but dropped two passes and was the intended receiver on Flacco's interception. Flacco will be a QB2 in Tampa next week.
Oct 5 - 4:24 PM

Joe Flacco completed 22-of-31 passes for 327 yards and three touchdowns in the Ravens' Week 4 win over the Panthers.

He didn't take a single sack while dropping second- and third-level dimes to Torrey and Steve Smith for touchdowns. The losses of LT Eugene Monroe and TE Dennis Pitta were barely apparent, with UDFA LT James Hurst and TE Owen Daniels stepping up in impressive fill-in performances. Through four games, Flacco is on pace to throw 28 touchdown passes compared to 12 interceptions. He'll be on the QB1 streamer radar in Week 5 at Indianapolis.
Sep 28 - 4:13 PM

Joe Flacco completed 19-of-31 passes for 217 yards, a touchdown, and an interception in the Ravens' Week 3 win over the Browns.

He added six yards on four carries, but was stuffed on a goal-line sneak. Flacco's fourth-quarter 32-yard strike to Steve Smith Sr. was the big play in this game, setting up Justin Tucker's game-winning field goal. Through three games, Flacco has a TD-to-INT ratio of 4-2. He'll be a low-end QB2 when the Ravens take on the Panthers' stout defense in Week 4.
Sep 21 - 4:07 PM

Joe Flacco is listed as probable for Week 3.

Flacco missed practice on Wednesday due to an illness. He's a low-upside QB2 for Sunday's matchup at Cleveland.
Sep 19 - 8:12 PM

Joe Flacco (illness) returned to practice Thursday.

Flacco sat out on Wednesday due to a cold. He'll be a low-upside QB2 at Cleveland Sunday in a game with a meager 41.5 over/under.
Sep 18 - 11:44 AM

Joe Flacco missed Ravens practice with an illness Wednesday.

He has a cold. Flacco should be fine for Sunday's game at Cleveland.
Sep 17 - 9:25 PM

Joe Flacco completed 21-of-26 passes for 166 yards and two touchdowns in Baltimore's 26-6, Week 2 thrashing of the Steelers.

He also rushed five times for three yards, and took a huge shot on a failed quarterback sneak at the goal-line. Flacco didn't do anything fancy, instead relentlessly targeting Steve Smith and his tight ends on short-to-intermediate routes. He looked Smith's way a whopping 10 times compared to only three for Torrey Smith. Flacco will remain a low-end QB2 for Baltimore's Week 3 trip to Cleveland.
Sep 11 - 11:26 PM

Joe Flacco completed 35-of-62 passes for 345 yards, one touchdown, and an interception in the Ravens' Week 1 loss to the Bengals.

He added seven yards on the ground and took three sacks. At the end of a miserable, 10-for-23 first half, Flacco made a brutal mental error, continuing to scramble outside the pocket with the Ravens in field goal range, and ultimately throwing an incompletion into the dirt as time expired. He cost his team three points. Flacco also tossed a terribly ill-advised interception to Bengals LB Emmanuel Lamur early in the third quarter. He did rebound to hit Steve Smith for an 80-yard touchdown in the fourth frame, but overall this was an unimpressive performance from Baltimore's entire offense. Flacco will be a low-end QB2 option in Week 2 against the Steelers.
Sep 7 - 5:10 PM

Joe Flacco completed 16-of-23 passes for 180 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' third preseason game.

Flacco looked sharp in the Ravens' final regular-season tune-up. He led Baltimore to three first-half scores and hit a wide open Steve Smith for a 30-yard touchdown. Assuming he doesn't play in the Ravens' exhibition finale, Flacco should finish the preseason 29-of-45 for 345 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. Flacco is worth a late-round pick as a QB2 in fantasy drafts.
Aug 23 - 9:30 PM

Joe Flacco completed 9-of-17 passes for 113 yards and one touchdown in Baltimore's second preseason game versus Dallas on Saturday.

Flacco is now 13-of-22 passing for 165 yards and one touchdown after two exhibition contests. On Saturday, he flicked a beautiful 19-yard touchdown pass to Torrey Smith, who made a great over-the-shoulder catch in single coverage. Get used to hearing the Flacco-to-Smith connection. Coming off a career-worst season, Flacco's aim is to become more efficient under new OC Gary Kubiak.
Aug 16 - 8:53 PM

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport believes Joe Flacco has undergone a "technical and fundamental transformation."

RapSheet came to the conclusion after observing a Ravens practice. Per Rapoport, Flacco is "getting the ball out quicker," and looks "nimble and more efficient." Entering his age-29 season, we're not expecting any sort of full-scale transformation from the Ravens' statue of a pocket passer, but he should improve on last year's embarrassingly bad numbers (59.0 completion percentage, 19:22 TD:INT ratio, 73.1 QB rating). Flacco has an upgraded supporting cast, and able quarterback mentor in new OC Gary Kubiak.

Ravens OC Gary Kubiak is expected to utilized bootlegs and moving pockets in order to keep Joe Flacco off the turf this season.

Flacco took 48 sacks last season, so it makes sense Kubiak would prioritize protecting his franchise quarterback. In addition to keeping Flacco on the move, Kubiak will rely on a run-committed offense and an on-paper improved offensive line. Even if it works, Flacco's upside is limited to a low-end QB2 in fantasy.
