Coming off a career-worst season, Flacco's aim is to become more efficient under new OC Gary Kubiak. Aug 16 - 8:53 PM

Date:'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.

New Ravens OC Gary Kubiak is installing more quick-hitting passes.

The Ravens have been a deep-ball team during the Joe Flacco era, and have watched his completion rate sink below 60 percent in each of the last three seasons. Kubiak's pass scheme is about faster releases and increased efficiency, which set up a few play-action vertical shots that utilize Flacco's impressive arm. The additions of a healthy Dennis Pitta and veteran Steve Smith should help, but a run-heavy gameplan caps Flacco's upside at the low-end QB2 level.

Ravens LT Eugene Monroe anticipates new OC Gary Kubiak utilizing a run-based offense in 2014.

Kubiak's Houston offenses were at their best with a run foundation, and taking deep shots off play action. "Last year, we were lining up in a lot of one-back stuff, a lot of empty stuff, tossing the ball out there, coming out throwing on first down," Monroe said. "I don’t think that’s the history with Gary. I think he wants to run the ball a little bit." It's bad news for Joe Flacco's pass-attempt stats, but should improve his efficiency. Flacco has the necessary arm strength to be one of the NFL's top deep-ball throwers. Torrey Smith is one of the NFL's top deep threats.

Joe Flacco confirmed he won't need any knee surgery this offseason.

Flacco had a scare in Week 15 when his knee got hit by the helmet of Lions LB DeAndre Levy. He didn't miss a game, but did wear a brace and appeared to be limited. Still, it's not a concern going forward for a guy that has started 109 consecutive games (including playoffs). "I'm not going to have to get anything done," Flacco said. "It was just my MCL and it will heal on its own."

Joe Flacco completed 30-of-50 passes for 192 yards, one touchdown, and three interceptions in the Ravens' 34-17, Week 17 loss to the Bengals.

With the loss and the Steelers' win over the Browns, the Ravens are eliminated from playoff contention. If the Chargers beat the Chiefs' backups later this afternoon, the Bolts will be in the playoffs. Otherwise, the Steelers will be in. Flacco was battered and bruised in Sunday's loss, taking multiple hits and a couple sacks. After scoring a six-year, $120.6 million deal in the offseason, Flacco answered with the worst season of his career. He completed 362-of-614 passes (58.9 percent) for 3,912 yards (6.37 YPA), 19 touchdowns, and a career-worst 21 interceptions. Flacco was also sacked a career-high 48 times. The Ravens need to get him more weapons on offense and re-sign Dennis Pitta. Flacco will be a fantasy QB2 in 2014.

Joe Flacco is not listed on the Week 17 injury report.

Flacco said Tuesday he's still dealing with soreness in his knee, but remains on track to play this week. It's good news after he looked limited in Sunday's loss to the Patriots. Flacco is fully expected to start in a must-win game at Cincinnati.
Wed, Dec 25, 2013 02:09:00 PM

Speaking Tuesday, Joe Flacco claimed his knee "feels a lot better."

Flacco also claimed his knee felt "really good" in Sunday's loss, where he had major trouble planting his injured left leg. Flacco plans to again wear a bulky brace for Week 17. "I just want to make sure I can be as safe as I can so nothing crazy happens. Not ideal, but not that big of an issue." Playing at what appears to be well less than 100 percent, it's possible Flacco could require a clean-up procedure in the offseason. Flacco has never missed a game in his six-year career.

Speaking Monday, Ravens coach John Harbaugh conceded Joe Flacco (knee) "definitely isn't 100 percent," and is dealing with swelling.

Flacco was severely limited in Sunday's loss to the Patriots, struggling to plant on his injured left leg, failing to drive throws as a consequence. It resulted in a pick and two missed deep connections with Torrey Smith. Flacco will be in for a long afternoon in this week's must-win game in Cincinnati.

Joe Flacco completed 22-of-38 passes for 260 yards, zero passing touchdowns and two interceptions in Baltimore's 41-7, Week 16 loss to the Patriots, adding a rushing score.

Flacco was as bad as the box score would indicate, and appeared to be majorly inhibited by his bum left knee. Flacco wasn't stepping into his throws, which directly resulted in his first pick and a botched deep ball to Torrey Smith that could have gone for a long score. Flacco's second pick was a horrendous throw to Dennis Pitta on a simple sideline route. The low point came when Flacco failed to plant his left leg, tripping himself up for a sack. The Ravens aren't going to have a prayer next week in Cincinnati if Flacco doesn't majorly up his game.
Sun, Dec 22, 2013 08:09:00 PM

Joe Flacco (knee) and Ray Rice (thigh) are active for Week 16 against the Patriots.

Flacco is wearing a bulky brace, which figures to limit his mobility. The Ravens may try to focus on the short-passing game more than usual. That would bode well for Dennis Pitta. Inactive for the Ravens are CB Asa Jackson, S Omar Brown, ILB Albert McClellan, C Ryan Jensen, WR Deonte Thompson, TE Dallas Clark and DT Brandon Williams.
Sun, Dec 22, 2013 02:58:00 PM

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports Joe Flacco (knee) is dealing with some "pain and soreness" in his left knee but is fully expected to start against the Patriots.

Flacco isn't going to miss this start with the Ravens controlling their own destiny. His "mildly" sprained MCL will test his pain tolerance for sure, but Flacco will wear a brace and gut it out. Fantasy-wise, Flacco is merely a low-end QB2. Torrey Smith is a mid-range WR2, and Dennis Pitta is a back-end TE1.

Profootballtalk reports Joe Flacco (knee, questionable) "feels strongly" about his chances of playing Sunday against the Patriots.

Flacco has a "mild" MCL sprain and practiced on a limited basis this week. Barring a setback on Saturday, he'll be cleared to start despite being listed as questionable. Flacco is just a low-end QB2 for the fantasy finals.
Sat, Dec 21, 2013 04:05:00 PM

Joe Flacco (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 16.

Despite the "Q" tag, Flacco practiced in some fashion every day this week and will start Sunday's game against New England. He'll be a lower-end QB2.
