Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Joe Flacco is "going to have a market" this offseason.
With Lamar Jackson struggling and the offense stuck in neutral, the Ravens flirted with turning to Flacco on Sunday, but he ended his time in Baltimore rooted to the bench, finishing his season with 2,465 yards, 12 touchdowns, and six interceptions in nine games. After the game, Harbaugh made no effort to hide Baltimore's plan to move on from Flacco, which will save them $10.5 million against the cap. Facing a weak free agent group and draft class, quarterback-needy teams will look long and hard at Flacco this spring. Jan 6 - 5:06 PM

Joe Flacco was left off the injury report on Monday.

It's the first time Flacco has been completely left off the injury report since his November 4th hip injury. Flacco will remain Lamar Jackson's backup for the Week 16 game the Chargers.

Joe Flacco (hip) is active for Week 15 against the Bucs.

This was expected after Flacco practiced fully this week. Flacco won't start, but his presence shortens Lamar Jackson's leash. The Ravens haven't ruled out giving Flacco some snaps under center against the Bucs.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Ravens are expected to move on from Joe Flacco this offseason.

The Ravens have found their quarterback of the future in Lamar Jackson, who will finish out the year as Baltimore's starter. Per ESPN's Jamison Hensley, the Ravens are expected to shop Flacco this offseason. Due an $18.5 base salary in 2019, Flacco's release would cost the Ravens $16 million in dead money. Regardless, the Joe Flacco Era in Baltimore appears to be over. Perhaps the Redskins would consider a run at Flacco, particularly with Alex Smith's career in doubt.

Joe Flacco (hip) is questionable for Week 15 against the Buccaneers.

Flacco was a full participant at all three practices this week and should be active as Lamar Jackson's backup Sunday against Tampa. If for some reason Flacco can't go, Robert Griffin III would handle clipboard duties behind Jackson.

Joe Flacco has been cleared from his hip injury and will be the backup to Lamar Jackson this week against the Bucs.

Flacco will supplant Robert Griffin III as the No. 2 for the first time since getting hurt in Week 10 and will be active on Sunday. Jackson is getting another nod after guiding the Ravens to a 3-1 record the last four weeks. Flacco being active may make Jackson's leash shorter, but he's still a fine QB1.

Speaking Monday, Ravens coach John Harbaugh did not commit to Joe Flacco (hip) as his Week 15 starter if healthy, only saying he would be a part of the game plan.

Harbaugh made it sound as if Flacco will finally be ready to return against the Bucs but said his role "could entail anything right now." "We have a plan," Harbaugh continued. "We have to talk to the guys about it. Whether we share that publicly, we'll have to decide as the week goes on." It certainly sounds like Harbaugh is leaning toward Lamar Jackson as his starter, but we would not etch that in stone after Jackson had another mixed day against the Chiefs. It's quite possible we head into Sunday not knowing the Ravens' plan at quarterback.

Joe Flacco (hip) is inactive for Week 14 against the Chiefs.

Flacco was reportedly going to be active as the backup to Lamar Jackson, but that isn't in the plans. It'll again be Robert Griffin III. It's probably best for Jackson not to have to be looking over his shoulder to the sideline at Flacco any time he makes a mistake, wondering if he's going to be pulled. It's also great news for Jackson in fantasy, as he should play the whole game barring injury. Also out for the Ravens are WR Jordan Lasley, OLB Tim Williams, S Tony Jefferson, LG Alex Lewis, FB Patrick Ricard, and DT Zach Sieler.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Joe Flacco (hip) is expected to be active as the Ravens' backup quarterback for Week 14 against the Chiefs.

Flacco was upgraded to full participation at Friday's practice, suggesting he's all the way back from his torn hip. John Harbaugh has alluded to the possibility of both quarterbacks seeing action, but it appears Jackson will draw a fourth straight start under center. It's an attackable matchup for Jackson against a vulnerable Chiefs secondary, though fantasy owners know by now that L-Jax does most of his damage on the ground.

Joe Flacco (hip) is questionable for Week 14 against the Chiefs.

Even if Flacco suits up (a true question mark at this point), he'll simply backup Lamar Jackson in Arrowhead Sunday. The Ravens have altered their offense entirely with Jackson under center, leading the league in rush play rate over their past three games. Gus Edwards and Jackson himself remain the only starting options among Baltimore's roster in 10/12-team leagues.
Fri, Dec 7, 2018 04:01:00 PM

Joe Flacco (hip) participated in Thursday's practice.

The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec reports Flacco "looks much more comfortable" in practice than he did last week, but he still expects Lamar Jackson to start against the Chiefs. It is possible Flacco is active as a backup in that game.
Thu, Dec 6, 2018 12:40:00 PM

Joe Flacco (hip) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Flacco did more on Wednesday, but he's still not cleared for full practice. It sets up for another week of Lamar Jackson starting, though the Ravens have yet to announce anything. The Ravens haven't ruled out using both Flacco and Jackson against the Chiefs.
Wed, Dec 5, 2018 05:27:00 PM

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Joe Flacco could share quarterback duties with Lamar Jackson in Week 14 against the Chiefs.

Rapoport conceded it's "hard to imagine" Jackson losing his starting job if he beats Atlanta in Week 13, though he added Flacco could also see snaps against Kansas City. Per Rapsheet, coach John Harbaugh "loves the intrigue" of using both quarterbacks and enjoys how difficult it is for teams to prepare for their opposite skill sets. Jackson is the better fantasy bet due to his rushing expertise, but he'll be difficult to trust if Harbaugh is serious about using both quarterbacks.
Sun, Dec 2, 2018 12:55:00 PM

Joe Flacco (hip) is inactive for Week 13 against the Falcons.

Flacco never had a chance at suiting up, though it appears he may get cleared for Week 14, at which point the Ravens will have to decide what they want to do at quarterback. Also inactive for the Ravens are RT James Hurst, S Tony Jefferson, OLB Tim Williams, WR Jordan Lasley, DL/FB Patrick Ricard and DT Zach Sieler.

Joe Flacco (hip) is doubtful for Week 13 against the Falcons.

Flacco didn't have any setbacks on Friday, but is still considered doubtful to suit up in the Georgia Dome. In his usual Friday conference, coach John Harbaugh suspiciously noted Flacco being "an option" Sunday. Either way, this is rookie Lamar Jackson's job to lose moving forward. Even though the Falcons will have stud MLB Deion Jones back manning the middle of the field, Jackson's rushing floor alone makes him a serviceable QB1 in Week 13.
