Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti was adamant in his support of Joe Flacco at Friday's press conference.
That's in contrast to GM Ozzie Newsome -- whom Bisciotti announced will step down in 2019 -- and coach John Harbaugh, whose firing Bisciotti said was "considered" after another disappointing season. When asked about replacing Flacco, Bisciotti replied, "We have bigger fish to fry" and "repeatedly backed" Flacco as the Ravens' quarterback whenever the topic came up. Bisciotti noted Flacco's 2017 back injury "several times" to explain his ineffectiveness. Flacco's yards-per-attempt averages have dipped precipitously in the last four years (7.2 > 6.1 > 6.0 > 5.3). Beat writer Jeff Zrebiec suggested Bisciotti's support for Flacco likely means the Ravens won't draft a quarterback with their first-round pick. Feb 2 - 2:48 PM

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said the team will "for sure" consider drafting a quarterback.

"When you have a veteran quarterback at this stage, it's the time you're looking for a young backup," Harbaugh added. The coach blamed Joe Flacco's recent struggles on his health, and these comments certainly do not suggest the team is looking to replace him in the near future. Still, it is notable Baltimore is at the very least thinking about the future. Flacco averaged just 5.7 yards per attempt with 18 touchdowns and 13 interceptions this season.

Jan 4 - 11:29 AM

Joe Flacco completed 25-of-47 passes for 203 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in a Week 17 loss to the Bengals.

The loss knocked Baltimore out of the playoffs. Flacco did his part, putting the Ravens ahead with under a minute remaining but the defense allowed a miracle touchdown on a fourth-down pass. Flacco took a huge step back this year, throwing for just 3,141 yards with a 18:13 TD/INT ratio. He managed a solid second half, but there's major concerns on him going forward. Baltimore needs to upgrade Flacco's weapons this offseason.

Joe Flacco completed 29-of-38 passes for 237 yards and two touchdowns in the Ravens' 23-16, Week 16 win over the Colts.

With the victory, the 9-6 Ravens put themselves in a "win and in" playoff situation against the Bengals next Sunday. The multi-score game was Flacco's third in his past four starts, but he struggled to make big plays, and missed a few easy throws. Rain, sometimes driving, surely played a factor. Flacco has just 17 total touchdowns heading into the final week of the season.

Joe Flacco completed 26-of-42 passes for 288 yards and touchdown with three yards and a touchdown rushing in Sunday's Week 15 win over the Browns.

The 288 passing yards were the most that Flacco has had in a game this season. He got the scoring started for the Ravens with a 2-yard rushing touchdown in the second quarter. He followed that up with a 33-yard touchdown pass to Ben Watson on the following drive to put the Ravens up 17-7 and they never looked back. Flacco has now had 16 or more points in three straight games while running into an extremely positive matchup next week at home against the Colts. Flacco will be on the streaming radar in Week 16.
Sun, Dec 17, 2017 04:19:00 PM

Joe Flacco completed 20-of-35 passes for 269 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in Week 14 against the Steelers.

Flacco bounced back after an opening drive interception. He had the Ravens in position to win late in the fourth quarter, but couldn't hold off the Steelers. Flacco's touchdowns were a 30-yard pass to Chris Moore and a fullback dumpoff. He's played better over the last two weeks, but Flacco has still been one of the worst starters in the league. Flacco has a matchup with the Browns in Week 15.
Mon, Dec 11, 2017 12:11:00 AM

Joe Flacco completed 23-of-36 passes for 269 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 13 win over the Lions.

The yardage was a season high for Flacco and his two touchdowns were just the third time this year that he's thrown multiple touchdowns in a game. He could've done a lot more damage through the air as Baltimore entered the half with a 20-0 lead after Flacco had accumulated 192 of his yards and both of his touchdowns. Flacco hit Ben Watson for a 1-yard touchdown in the second quarter set up by a 66-yard bomb to Mike Wallace and then connected with fullback Patrick Ricard for a 3-yard touchdown on the following drive. Despite his best game of the season, Flacco will still be a bottom half fantasy option next week versus the Steelers.
Sun, Dec 3, 2017 04:19:00 PM

Joe Flacco completed 20-of-32 passes for 141 yards in the Ravens' Week 12 win over the Texans on Monday night.

The 6-5 Ravens continue to find ways to win despite their offensive ineptitude. Flacco has failed to top 200 yards in 7-of-11 games this season and has zero 300-yard efforts. Even against the Texans' broken-down defense at home, Flacco still did nothing as a passer, failing to challenge Houston deep and again settling for dump-offs. He plays timid now and is looking like perhaps the most overpaid quarterback in the league. Flacco isn't a fantasy option no matter who he plays.
Mon, Nov 27, 2017 11:47:00 PM

Joe Flacco completed 22-of-28 passes for 183 yards with a touchdown and an interception in Week 11 against the Packers.

Flacco didn't need to do much with Baltimore defense posting a shutout. His only mistake with an underthrown end-zone pass to Danny Woodhead that was intercepted. Flacco had good placement on a sideline touchdown to Mike Wallace, but that was his only highlight. The Ravens have a matchup with Houston on Monday night in Week 12.
Sun, Nov 19, 2017 04:18:00 PM

Joe Flacco said he wants the offense "to go after it" following the bye.

"We can't sit back and just expect us to not lose football games," Flacco said. "We got to go attack." Flacco is averaging just 5.3 yards per attempt, the lowest average among qualifying quarterbacks and a full yard lower than his previous career-low. The Ravens are also last in the league with 15 pass plays of 20 yards or more. With the receiving corps getting healthy and Danny Woodhead on the way back, perhaps the coaching staff loosens the reins following the bye week.

Joe Flacco completed 34-of-52 passes for 261 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions while adding one rush for seven yards Sunday in the Ravens’ Week 9 loss to the Titans.

He was sacked twice for a loss of nine yards. Flacco threw for a season-high in yards, mostly because he attempted a season-high in passes. Both of Flacco’s touchdowns came with Baltimore in catch-up mode after halftime including a one-yard slant to Mike Wallace with 46 seconds left in the fourth quarter. Flacco had all the time in the world to throw on his first interception, which was reeled in by Kevin Byard off a deflection by Logan Ryan. He was picked again, also by Byard, on Baltimore’s first possession of the second half. While the first interception was fluky, Flacco had nobody to blame but himself on his second miscue, throwing awkwardly off his back foot on a pass intended for Ben Watson. On a brighter note, Flacco showed improved chemistry with Jeremy Maclin, who led the team with 98 yards on eight catches. Flacco will go on the road against Green Bay after the Ravens’ upcoming bye week.

Joe Flacco (concussion) is expected to play in Week 9 against the Titans.

Flacco was listed as questionable despite practicing fully all week. There was never doubt over his status. Flacco's presence improves the outlook of Mike Wallace.

Joe Flacco (concussion) is listed as questionable for Week 9 against the Titans.

Flacco practiced fully all week, so the Ravens are just being conservative with his status. He's expected to start Sunday barring a setback. Flacco playing is an upgrade for Baltimore's pass offense, but he's not a Week 9 streamer.

Joe Flacco (concussion) is practicing in full for Week 9 against the Titans.

It confirms that Flacco will be back under center Sunday after leaving last week's game with a concussion. Flacco ranks dead-last among starting quarterbacks in passing yards per game this year and won't be more than a back-end streamer against the Titans in Week 9.

Joe Flacco (concussion) expects to play in Week 9 against the Titans.

Flacco is practicing fully and has been cleared from the concussion protocol. He won't miss any time after going down last Thursday night. Flacco gives Baltimore their best chance to win, but isn't on the Week 9 streaming radar.
