Joe Flacco completed 25-of-37 passes for 238 yards, one touchdown, and one pick in the Ravens' big Week 6 win over the Titans.
Flacco wasn't needed as the Ravens took a 14-0 lead into the half and never looked back. Baltimore's defense sacked Marcus Mariota a whopping 11 times on the day, inevitably allowing Flacco to stand around and handoff to Alex Collins (19/54/2) until the final whistle. The Titans quietly boast an efficient pass rush, so an outing such as this was expected. Have no fear in turning right around and starting/streaming Flacco everywhere across all formats in Week 7 against the Saints. Oct 14 - 9:23 PM

Joe Flacco completed 29-of-56 passes for 298 yards with an interception in Sunday's Week 5 loss to the Browns.

Flacco wasn't at his best Sunday, but suffered from multiple dropped passes from his receivers in the rain. It was the first time that he failed to throw a touchdown pass since Week 12 of last season. Flacco's lone turnover came on tipped pass at the goal line in which he was targeted Nick Boyle in the end zone. Flacco will enter Week 6 as a middling QB2 option on the road against the Titans.
Oct 7 - 4:49 PM

Joe Flacco completed 28-of-42 passes for 363 yards and two touchdowns in the Ravens' Week 4 win over the Steelers.

Flacco hit John Brown on a 33-yard touchdown to open the game. He added a goal-line TD to Alex Collins after a Steelers first quarter turnover and connected on a number of deep shots. It's a solid rebound for Flacco after two straight middling games. Fueled by the Ravens trading up for Lamar Jackson, Flacco is on pace for 5,012 yards and a 32:8 TD/INT ratio through four weeks. Baltimore has another division game with the Browns in Week 5.
Sep 30 - 11:43 PM

Joe Flacco completed 25-of-40 passes for 277 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' Week 3 win over the Broncos.

Flacco bounced back from his rough performance last Thursday night. He made a couple nice throws to John Brown down the sidelines, one of which Brown caught for a 44-yard gain in the second quarter, and consistently found Michael Crabtree when he needed a completion. With a great matchup against the Steelers up next, Flacco will be a streaming option.
Sep 23 - 4:15 PM

Joe Flacco completed 32-of-55 passes for 377 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Ravens' 34-23, Week 2 loss to the Bengals.

Flacco also lost a fumble that essentially sealed the game in the fourth quarter. Utterly failing to feel the pressure as he rolled out to the sideline, Flacco got thunderously tomahawked from behind as he attempted to wind up for a bomb. It's the kind of mistake he's made far too often in his career. His first pick was an inexcusable throw into triple coverage. The second, a lame duck he tossed while getting hit. The biggest positive was Flacco's connection with speedster/deep threat John Brown, whom Flacco targeted 10 times. The Ravens host the Broncos in Week 3.
Sep 13 - 11:52 PM

Joe Flacco completed 25-of-34 passes for 236 yards and three touchdowns in Baltimore's Week 1 game against Buffalo.

Flacco carried his strong preseason into Week 1. He threw all his touchdowns in the first three quarters before getting rested in a blowout. Flacco has had an Alex Smith fire lit under him after the Ravens drafted Lamar Jackson and looks primed for a rebound with an improved supporting cast. He'll get the Bengals on Thursday Night Football in Week 2.
Sep 9 - 3:30 PM

Joe Flacco completed 7-of-9 passes for 72 yards and one touchdown in the Ravens' third preseason game against the Colts on Monday.

By all accounts, Flacco has been having the best summer of his career, and the Ravens using a first-rounder on Lamar Jackson has lit a fire under 33-year-old Flacco. Through two preseason games, he's 12-of-16 for 143 yards and two scores with no picks. On Monday against the Colts, Flacco hit Michael Crabtree in a tight window down the sideline for a 29-yard pickup before finishing off the drive with a seven-yard touchdown to John Brown. Flacco's rekindled fire along with the Ravens' much improved pass-game weaponry may make Flacco a useful QB2 at times.
Aug 20 - 9:11 PM

A "longtime Ravens observer" told NBC's Peter King that Joe Flacco is having "far and away" the best training camp of his career.

King was impressed by the practice he saw, noting Flacco made "six beautiful medium-to-deep throws right on the money in team drills." Baltimore has not even played their first preseason game, but every report about Flacco has been glowing so far in camp. Lamar Jackson's shadow is large, but it is looking like Flacco is up to the challenge.
Jul 30 - 11:54 AM

The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec writes the Ravens "remain [Joe] Flacco’s team."

Zrebiec acknowledges Lamar Jackson has impressed at times, but he is still "a work-in-progress with his arm." More importantly, Baltimore's plan has always been to let Jackson develop for a year or two behind Flacco. "If Jackson starts a game at quarterback this season," Zrebiec writes, "it will almost surely be because Flacco is either hurt or the team’s season has become a lost cause and they start evaluating for the future." Things can certainly change, but it looks like Flacco is locked into the starting job for now.
Jul 26 - 9:43 AM

Ravens OC Marty Mornhinweg said Sunday that Joe Flacco has shown improved movement ability early in training camp.

Flacco will never be a dual threat, but his ability to move in the pocket and add yardage with his legs will come in handy as Flacco attempts to hold off Lamar Jackson. Flacco was severely debilitated by a back injury at this time last year. "It looks like he’s moving and grooving better than he has in several years," Mornhinweg said. Reporter Jamison Hensley noted Flacco sprinted 20 yards after a run-pass option play in Sunday's practice.
Jul 22 - 3:20 PM

Joe Flacco got together with his receivers and tight ends for outside workouts this summer for the first time since 2011.

This falls in line with reports that Flacco is "more motivated" this year after the Ravens used a first-round pick on Lamar Jackson, Flacco's eventual successor. Flacco has been about as mediocre a quarterback in football since winning the Super Bowl in 2012 and then tearing his ACL in 2015. He needed a fire lit under him, and the Jackson selection may have provided just that. The Ravens have also done more to upgrade his receiving corps this offseason.
Jul 18 - 3:31 PM

Per ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley, the "consensus" among players and coaches is that Joe Flacco is "more motivated" this offseason following Baltimore's first-round trade up for Lamar Jackson.

"Drafting Lamar and bringing [Robert] Griffin in, it’s lit a fire under him," S Eric Weddle said. "You can tell. It has shown." The common comparison is from Flacco to Alex Smith, who supposedly benefited from having a "fire lit" when the Chiefs traded up for Pat Mahomes. Flacco should know his job is on the line. The Ravens can cut him after this season and save $10.5 million in cap space.
Jun 13 - 1:14 PM

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said the team is taking things "one year at a time" at quarterback.

Baltimore drafted Lamar Jackson with the final pick in the first round, a move which inexorably starts the clock on Joe Flacco. Harbaugh has said Flacco will be their quarterback this season, however, and the team laid out what seems to be a long-term plan to develop Jackson. That said, those plans could change quickly if the season does not go how the Ravens hope, especially with Flacco in the midst of a multi-year decline. If Flacco does not bounce back quickly, Jackson could see the field as earlier as this year.

Coach John Harbaugh said after the Ravens selected Lamar Jackson No. 32 overall that Joe Flacco "is our quarterback."

"Lamar is going to have a great chance to develop," Harbaugh continued. "This doesn't really change things in a sense that we're going to go with Joe and he's going to roll." Flacco turned 33 in January and has been mediocre at best since tearing his ACL a couple years back. He has four years left on his contract, but the Ravens can clear $18.5 million against the cap next year by cutting him. They're not going to do that, but a 2019 trade seems very likely.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh wants Joe Flacco to organize a passing camp with his new receivers.

Baltimore overhauled their receiver corps this offseason, adding John Brown and Ryan Grant Michael Crabtree. They are also likely to add more help during the draft. With Flacco coming off yet another down season, his coach wants him to take the initiative. "Look at the great passing games. It’s because they’re precise," Harbaugh said. "Before practice, after practice, in the offseason -- we’ve heard all those stories. That’s what it takes. For Joe to have those guys and get with those guys and get great, that’s what we expect." Flacco averaged 6.1 yards per attempt with 38 touchdowns and 28 interceptions the last two seasons.
