Joe Flacco (illness) returned to practice Thursday.

Flacco sat out on Wednesday due to a cold. He'll be a low-upside QB2 at Cleveland Sunday in a game with a meager 41.5 over/under.

Joe Flacco missed Ravens practice with an illness Wednesday.

He has a cold. Flacco should be fine for Sunday's game at Cleveland.
Sep 17 - 9:25 PM

Joe Flacco completed 21-of-26 passes for 166 yards and two touchdowns in Baltimore's 26-6, Week 2 thrashing of the Steelers.

He also rushed five times for three yards, and took a huge shot on a failed quarterback sneak at the goal-line. Flacco didn't do anything fancy, instead relentlessly targeting Steve Smith and his tight ends on short-to-intermediate routes. He looked Smith's way a whopping 10 times compared to only three for Torrey Smith. Flacco will remain a low-end QB2 for Baltimore's Week 3 trip to Cleveland.
Sep 11 - 11:26 PM

Joe Flacco completed 35-of-62 passes for 345 yards, one touchdown, and an interception in the Ravens' Week 1 loss to the Bengals.

He added seven yards on the ground and took three sacks. At the end of a miserable, 10-for-23 first half, Flacco made a brutal mental error, continuing to scramble outside the pocket with the Ravens in field goal range, and ultimately throwing an incompletion into the dirt as time expired. He cost his team three points. Flacco also tossed a terribly ill-advised interception to Bengals LB Emmanuel Lamur early in the third quarter. He did rebound to hit Steve Smith for an 80-yard touchdown in the fourth frame, but overall this was an unimpressive performance from Baltimore's entire offense. Flacco will be a low-end QB2 option in Week 2 against the Steelers.
Sep 7 - 5:10 PM

Joe Flacco completed 16-of-23 passes for 180 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' third preseason game.

Flacco looked sharp in the Ravens' final regular-season tune-up. He led Baltimore to three first-half scores and hit a wide open Steve Smith for a 30-yard touchdown. Assuming he doesn't play in the Ravens' exhibition finale, Flacco should finish the preseason 29-of-45 for 345 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. Flacco is worth a late-round pick as a QB2 in fantasy drafts.
Aug 23 - 9:30 PM

Joe Flacco completed 9-of-17 passes for 113 yards and one touchdown in Baltimore's second preseason game versus Dallas on Saturday.

Flacco is now 13-of-22 passing for 165 yards and one touchdown after two exhibition contests. On Saturday, he flicked a beautiful 19-yard touchdown pass to Torrey Smith, who made a great over-the-shoulder catch in single coverage. Get used to hearing the Flacco-to-Smith connection. Coming off a career-worst season, Flacco's aim is to become more efficient under new OC Gary Kubiak.
Aug 16 - 8:53 PM'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.
Aug 7 - 4:57 PM

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.
Jun 28 - 9:36 AM

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.
Jun 23 - 10:11 AM

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.
Jun 6 - 1:25 AM

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.
