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. Oct 23 - 4:17 PM

Joe Flacco (shoulder) is active for Week 7 against the Jets.

Flacco missed a couple practices this week but returned to a full session on Friday. LB Elvis Dumervil, LB C.J. Mosley, WR Steve Smith Sr., OT Ronnie Stanley, LB Terrell Suggs, CB Shareece Wright and OG Marshal Yanda round out the Ravens' Week 7 inactives. Kamar Aiken (thigh), Devin Hester (thigh), Kendrick Lewis (thigh), Jerraud Powers (thigh) and Jimmy Smith (concussion) are all active.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Joe Flacco (shoulder) is expected to start versus the Jets.

Although Flacco missed Wednesday and Thursday's practices, he participated fully on Friday and should be all systems go. This is his best matchup of the season against the Jets’ porous secondary.
Oct 23 - 1:12 AM

ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley expects Joe Flacco (shoulder, questionable) to be active Week 7 against the Jets after the Ravens failed to add a quarterback Saturday.

He is fully expected to start after getting in a full practice Friday, and Hensley said he "showed no effects" from the injury in the session. Flacco has flubbed plenty of good matchups this season, but he should find success against the Jets. He is a fine streaming option. Daily Slant: Even though the Jets are dead last in Football Outsiders’ pass DVOA metric, it may be best to avoid Flacco in daily contests. There’s been reverse line movement on this game – an indication that sharp money is on the Jets – and the total has trended downward to 40.5. Flacco has only thrown five touchdowns over six games, and he appears to be pretty banged up. Plus, there are other similarly priced quarterbacks in equally great matchups. For example, Andy Dalton has the Browns and Kirk Cousins faces the Lions.

Joe Flacco (shoulder) was a full participant in Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Week 7 against the Jets.

The full practice puts Flacco on track to play in a juicy matchup against New York's porous pass defense. Flacco has been a poor fantasy quarterback this year, but he's not going to get a better matchup (until he faces Cleveland).
Oct 21 - 2:59 PM

Joe Flacco (shoulder) returned to practice Friday.

It puts Flacco on track to start after he missed Wednesday and Thursday's practices. Flacco being in the lineup would be good news for all Ravens involved.
Oct 21 - 11:52 AM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports "there's some optimism" Joe Flacco (shoulder) will play Sunday.

Coach John Harbaugh also said Flacco has a "legitimate shot" to play this week. Flacco didn't practice the last two days, but the Ravens haven't been overly concerned on his status. A return to even a limited practice Friday would put Flacco on track to start against the Jets.
Oct 20 - 3:37 PM

Joe Flacco (shoulder) did not practice Thursday.

Coach John Harbaugh said Flacco has a "legitimate shot" to play on Sunday, but this missed session puts a serious dent in his chances. Flacco could still get in some work Friday and play, but it is looking like Ryan Mallett will be under center this week. With Geno Smith starting for the Jets, this has a chance to be the worst quarterbacked game of the season.
Oct 20 - 11:23 AM

Joe Flacco (shoulder) didn't practice Wednesday.

Flacco was drilled a number of times in the Week 6 loss to the Giants, but he didn't miss any action. Reporters noted he "looked shaky" in the locker room afterward, and he recently had an MRI this week. Coach John Harbaugh said Flacco has a "legitimate shot" to play Week 7 against the Jets, but this is obviously worth tracking. If Flacco can't go, Ryan Mallett would start.
Oct 19 - 12:42 PM

Joe Flacco completed 26-of-48 passes for 307 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions and rushed once for no gain Sunday in the Ravens' Week 6 loss to the Giants.

He was sacked twice for a loss of 14 yards. It’s kind of hard to throw 48 passes and not have one of them go for a touchdown, but somehow Flacco found a way. His longest completion came on a 70-yard missile to Mike Wallace late in the third quarter. Flacco also hooked up with Breshad Perriman on a 41-yard deep ball in the first half. The Ravens were bailed out by a number of Giants penalties including a highly questionable pass interference call that set up a two-yard touchdown by Terrance West in the fourth quarter. Flacco had a chance to be the hero on Baltimore’s final possession but badly misfired on a sideline throw to Wallace, who was inexplicably wide open. Had he completed it, Wallace likely would have scored the game-winning touchdown. Flacco and the Ravens will look to end their three-game losing streak next time out against the Jets.
Oct 16 - 5:39 PM

Joe Flacco completed 30-of-46 passes for 210 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' Week 5 loss to the Redskins.

He rushed once for six yards and took three sacks. Flacco has only five touchdown passes through five games despite clearing 40 attempts in 4-of-5 weeks. He has salvaged a few early-season fantasy performances with fluky rushing TDs. Flacco is usually in play as a streamer when the Ravens face weak defenses, but his ceiling is limited by a sub-par supporting cast. Flacco will be more of a two-quarterback-league option in Week 6 at the Giants.
Oct 9 - 4:24 PM

Joe Flacco expressed frustration with the lack of deep pass plays on offense.

"We just make it so tough on ourselves." Flacco said. "We throw the ball 50 times, and we only have 300 yards." Flacco has thrown the second-most passes under five air yards this season and is 30th in YPA average at 6.3. From 2010-2015, Flacco averaged three passes per game of 25-plus air yards. Over the past two games, he's thrown just three total. Coach John Harbaugh agrees they need to start hitting bigger plays to Mike Wallace and the receivers.
Oct 5 - 10:08 AM

Joe Flacco completed 32-of-52 passes for 298 yards and a touchdown and rushed for an additional one-yard score in the Ravens' Week 4 loss to the Raiders.

Not only did Flacco pay dividends as a quarterback streamer, be benefited from the resurgence of Steve Smith Sr., who looked back to full health in this game and made plays at all three levels of the field. That is a major development for the Ravens' offense, and Flacco in particular. Flacco will continue to be streamer worthy when Baltimore hosts Washington in Week 5.
Oct 2 - 5:32 PM

Joe Flacco completed 29-of-40 passes for 214 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions and rushed three times for 12 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Ravens' Week 3 win over the Jaguars.

Flacco set a Ravens’ record by completing 21 passes in a row in this game, but you wouldn’t know it by looking at his dreadful stat line. He tried his absolute hardest to give this game away with two fourth-quarter interceptions. The first came on a miscommunication with Dennis Pitta. The pass was deflected by Jalen Ramsey and eventually intercepted by Tashaun Gipson. Paul Posluszny came down with the second pick on a pass that was intended for Justin Forsett. Flacco, who is not known for his mobility, actually broke off a couple nice runs on Sunday including a seven-yard touchdown in the second quarter. This wasn’t a masterpiece by any stretch but Flacco did just enough to put Baltimore in the winner’s circle. He has a nice matchup waiting against the Raiders in Week 4.
Sep 25 - 5:50 PM

Joe Flacco completed just 25-of-45 passes for 302 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Ravens' Week 2 win over the Browns.

Both of his interceptions went to Joe Haden, and Haden very easily should have had a third one, while Flacco could have thrown probably five picks. The Ravens fell into a quick 20-0 hole, but Flacco hooked up with Mike Wallace for a pair of red-zone touchdowns from seven and 17 yards out. Rookie WR Chris Moore also dropped a 37-yard touchdown and had a long catch called back on a Dennis Pitta penalty. Pitta was Flacco's favorite target in the win, piling up a 9-102 line on 12 targets. Flacco will be a borderline QB1/2 next week at the Jaguars.
