Joe Flacco completed 36-of-47 passes for 381 yards with four touchdowns and one interception Sunday in the Ravens' Week 13 win over the Dolphins.
Flacco was surgical on Sunday. He got off to a magnificent start by completing six-of-seven passes to six different receivers on the Ravens’ opening drive. Flacco had his most success throwing to Dennis Pitta, who shredded Miami for 90 yards and two touchdowns. Flacco’s obligatory bad interception came on a play-action pass intended for Mike Wallace. It was a poor decision by Flacco but Wallace gave up on his route, which allowed Byron Maxwell to swoop in for an easy pick. Aside from that, Flacco could do no wrong. He flourished when the Ravens went no-huddle and attacked the middle of the field. Sunday represented his highest yardage output since Week 2 of last season. Flacco will be an option in two-quarterback leagues next week against New England. Dec 4 - 4:49 PM

Joe Flacco completed 25-of-36 passes for 234 yards, one touchdown, and an interception in the Ravens' Week 13 loss to the Bengals.

He added 19 rushing yards on two scrambles. This was a typical 2016 game for Flacco: Very few big plays, a low yards-per-attempt average (6.5), and not much scoring. Baltimore eked out the victory 19-14. Set to face an upstart Dolphins defense in Week 13, Flacco will be a mere low-end two-quarterback-league play.
Nov 27 - 5:44 PM

Joe Flacco completed 23-of-35 passes for 269 yards and one touchdown in the Ravens' Week 11 loss to the Cowboys.

Flacco was sacked just once, but he's now been held to one or zero touchdowns in 7-of-9 starts. The Ravens ran just 52 offensive plays and were dominated in time of possession. That's just what the Cowboys do week in and week out. Flacco didn't make any mistakes, but Baltimore didn't have the ball enough. His touchdown was a five-yard hookup to Steve Smith. The Ravens will host the Bengals next week. Flacco won't be a recommended streaming option.
Nov 20 - 4:40 PM

Joe Flacco completed 30-of-41 passes for 296 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions and rushed once for three yards Thursday in the Ravens' Week 10 win over the Browns.

He was sacked twice for a loss of 19 yards. It was another mixed bag for Flacco, whose performances this year have ranged from competent to downright awful. The "downright awful" version of Flacco resurfaced in the first quarter on a poorly-thrown deep pass that was intercepted by Briean Boddy-Calhoun. It wasn’t all Flacco’s fault as Steve Smith Sr. inexplicably gave up on his route. Flacco was also picked by Joe Haden, which has been a frequent occurrence this year. Haden picked him twice when these teams met up in Week 2. Flacco did have some success in the second half, slinging touchdowns to Darren Waller, Smith and Breshad Perriman. He benefited from great field position as the Browns committed three second-half turnovers. Flacco won’t be more than a QB2 when the Ravens head to Dallas next week.
Nov 10 - 11:33 PM

Joe Flacco completed 18-of-30 passes for 241 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the Ravens' 21-14, Week 9 win over the Steelers.

The touchdown was Flacco's first in three weeks. It was a simple slant that Mike Wallace took 95 yards to the house, out-running the corner before stiff-arming the safety. A good deal more of Flacco's yardage came on a Steve Smith Sr. catch and run. There was a scary moment when Flacco got his surgically-repaired knee rolled up, but he ended up only needing a new brace. Flacco simply has not been good this season, posting a Teddy Bridgewater-esque six passing scores in eight games. Even in next week's cake matchup against the Browns, he won't be a top-15 option.
Nov 6 - 4:47 PM

Joe Flacco (left knee) returned to Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Flacco hopped to the locker room after getting his foot caught in the turf on an awkward slide, but it was apparently to change out his knee brace. He returned after missing 2-3 plays. All is well.
Nov 6 - 3:02 PM

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.

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.
Oct 23 - 11:56 AM

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.
