Joe Flacco likes team's offseason moves


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2014) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco said he's excited about the team's offseason moves, including the additions of receiver Steve Smith and tight end Owen Daniels and the re-signing of left tackle Eugene Monroe and receiver/returner Jacoby Jones. Flacco also should have starting tight end Dennis Pitta at 100 percent after he missed 12 games last year with a hip injury.

"No doubt about it, these guys are some explosive players," Flacco told the Baltimore Sun. "We're going to expect them to come in and help us out and be pretty good. These guys are ready to go and work and build on what we have.

"These guys are going to do nothing but help. They're proven players from across the league, and it will be interesting to see how they come in and fit in and help us out."


Joe Flacco, receivers to get early start


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2014) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco will work out with his receivers before the team's offseason program.

"Joe has communicated that through texts, and Torrey [Smith] has told me that they have a session planned and are trying to work out the dates," coach John Harbaugh said at the NFL owners meetings. "I'll be looking forward to seeing how it goes. It is important. It's big."

Flacco's receiving corps includes Torrey Smith, Steve Smith, Marlon Brown, Jacoby Jones and tight end Dennis Pitta. Flacco threw 19 touchdowns and a career-high 22 interceptions last year.


Former GM Angelo 'not sold' on Joe Flacco as an elite QB


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/12/2014) On the same week that CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora suggested quarterbacks like Joe Flacco were underpaid, former Bears general manager wrote that he's "not sold" on Joe Flacco as an elite quarterback. 

"He only gets into (the Solid Traits but Limited) category because of his Super Bowl win," Angelo wrote on TheSidelineView.com. "I'm not sold he has the ability to be an elite QB. He can play too cautious or get locked on to a receiver. He can be hot and cold, needs to be more room temperature; if the Ravens are going to make a run again."

Flacco had a nightmarish season in 2013, throwing 19 touchdowns and 22 interceptions. 


Gary Kubiak looking forward to working with Joe Flacco


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/28/2014) Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak is looking forward to working with quarterback Joe Flacco.

Kubiak said the two will sit down and discuss how Flacco can progress as a player. Flacco is coming off the worst season of his career statistically, and Kubiak will be his third offensive coordinator in the past 13 months. Kubiak was eager to help Flacco rebound after a rough year. "There’s no doubt in my mind, when Joe is said and done – he’s already a championship quarterback – but there’s a lot of great things left to happen and I’m looking forward to being part of that," Kubiak said.


No surgery needed for Joe Flacco


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/30/2013) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco won't need surgery for a knee injury he suffered late in the season. The passer sprained his left MCL

"I'm not going to have to get anything done," Flacco said per ESPN. "It was just my MCL and it will heal on its own."

Flacco followed up his Super Bowl winning season with 3,912 yards on 362-of-614 passing (59.0 comp. pct.) with 19 touchdowns and 22 interceptions. He also ran for a score and fumbled the ball away twice. 


Joe Flacco ends season on a low note


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/29/2013) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco completed 30-of-50 passes for 192 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-17 loss to the Bengals. He was intercepted three times, with all three picks coming in the fourth quarter. 

Flacco's third interception was returned for a touchdown, essentially sealing the win for the Bengals. He had one carry for one yard and was sacked twice. 

Flacco finishes the season with eight interceptions over his final four games, against just four touchdowns in that span. 


Joe Flacco has tough Week 17 matchup


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/27/2013) Outside of what appears to be a huge Week 14 aberration -- with Andrew Luck scoring 40 points against them -- the Bengals have been a tough matchup for opposing quarterbacks, keeping them under 20 Fantasy points in all but that one game since Week 7. 

Enter Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, who, while off the team's injury report, is going to wear a knee brace to protect a sprain. He hasn't passed for a touchdown in two games, and has just one multiple-passing touchdown game since Week 11. Flacco has just four games this season with 20 or more Fantasy points. 

With an unfavorable matchup, a knee issue, and a season full of sub-20 point games, Flacco can be left on the bench in most Fantasy formats for Week 17. 


Joe Flacco not listed on the injury report Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/25/2013) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco was not listed on the team's injury report Wednesday.

Flacco injured his knee prior to Week 16, but was still able to play. The team did not practice Wednesday, but did release a projected injury report. 


Joe Flacco to wear knee brace again


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/24/2013) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, who struggled Week 16 wearing a protective knee brace, will wear it again Sunday in Cincinnati.

“I’m going to do it the same way,” Flacco told the team's website. “I really just want to make sure I can be as safe as I can moving forward so nothing crazy happens. I’m pretty comfortable with it. It’s not ideal, but it is what it is and it’s not that big of an issue.”

Flacco hit 22 of 38 throws for 262 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions in the loss to New England. He did not have good mobility and he underthrew a couple key passes, according to the website.

“The knee actually felt really good all game,” said Flacco, who hurt his knee Week 15 at Detroit. “It was just the way it played out.”

Flacco practiced Tuesday and said his knee continues to improve. “It feels better,” Flacco said. “It felt really good on gameday – a little sore yesterday and today, but it feels a lot better."


Joe Flacco struggles to work past knee sprain


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco did not look like himself in his first game with a knee brace Sunday against the Patriots in Week 16.

Flacco, who suffered a sprained left knee his last time out, was picked off by Logan Ryan in the opening quarter and in the third quarter. He completed 22 of 38 passes for 260 yards, with no touchdowns and two interceptions. He was benched late in the fourth quarter in favor of Tyrod Taylor. Flacco was sacked four times and finished with a 56.9 passer rating in a 41-7 loss.

Flacco will try to get back on track in Week 17 at Cincinnati.

Four Ravens cleared for Week 16


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) The Ravens have ruled quarterback Joe Flacco (knee), running back Ray Rice (thigh), linebacker Elvis Dumervil (ankle) and defensive back Brynden Trawick (ankle) active for Sunday's game against the Patriots in Week 16.

Trawick was the only player out of the three that was ruled probable heading into Sunday. Flacco will wear a brace on his left leg for the first time in his career.


Joe Flacco expected to play Sunday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2013)  Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is officially questionable for Week 16 against the Patriots, but ProFootballTalk.com reports he is expected to take the field Sunday.

Citing a source, Flacco "feels strongly" about his chances of playing through a mild MCL sprain Sunday, barring an unforeseen setback Saturday. Flacco suffered the injury in Monday's game against the Lions, but was able to practice on a limited basis throughout the week. 


Knee injury has Joe Flacco questionable for Sunday game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2013) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has been deemed questionable for the game Sunday against New England. A knee problem has had him limited in practice all week.

Joe Flacco OK for Friday practice


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2013) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco managed Friday to participate in his third straight practice while wearing a brace on his left leg. He has been limited by a knee sprain, but is expected to be active for the critical battle Sunday against visiting New England.

Joe Flacco way too risky to trust vs. Patriots


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2013) For the first time in his career, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco will wear a brace on his sprained left knee during a game. His mobility will certainly be limited at home against the Patriots in Week 16.

The Patriots have registered 40 sacks this season, which ranks 11th in the league. New England has also permitted 240.2 passing yards per game, which ranks 18th in the league. Opposing quarterbacks have scored 19.86 Fantasy points per game this season against New England, including at least 30 points in back-to-back games.

Flacco tossed for 240 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in his last meeting against the Patriots in the playoffs last season. He has not passed for more than 273 yards over his last eight games played. He has only thrown for multiple touchdowns in three of those eight games.

At this point, Flacco may not be worth the risk, especially since he is not at 100 percent. Consider him a low-end option in all formats heading into Week 16.

Report: Flacco doesn't move much in Thursday session


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2013) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco participated in his second straight practice Thursday despite having a brace on his sprained left knee, but was limited in his mobility, the Baltimore Sun has reported.

Barring a setback, Flacco will probably play Sunday against the Patriots as the Ravens continue to fight for a playoff spot and AFC North crown.


Joe Flacco practices two days after injuring knee


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2013) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco was wearing a brace on his left leg, but did practice Wednesday after hurting his knee Monday night against Detroit. The extent of his participation will be revealed when the team releases its practice report.

Report: Joe Flacco's knee injury not serious


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2013) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco's left knee injury is not considered serious, according to ESPN. There is no MRI scheduled at this time for Flacco, who was hurt Monday after DeAndre Levy dove into the quarterback's leg in the fourth quarter. Flacco limped off but did not miss a play and said he felt fine after the game.

Joe Flacco says he's fine after scary hit to knee


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2013) Joe Flacco's knee bent sideways when Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy dove into the quarterback's leg in the fourth quarter Monday night. Flacco limped off but did not miss a play.

“It wasn’t really bothering me after the initial hit,” Flacco told the Ravens' website. “It was more probably scary than anything, just from what I felt... It feels fine. It feels strong.”

Flacco wasn't sure if he'll need any tests this week.

“I’ll talk to the trainers and see what the protocol is," said Flacco, who has not missed a game in his six-year career. "I’m not really used to anything like this.”


Joe Flacco off target Week 15


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2013) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco completed 20 of 38 throws for 222 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions in the win at Detroit. His 52.6 completion percentage was his lowest this season.

Flacco also ran twice for 13 yards. He was unable to lead a touchdown drive, but put Baltimore in position to kick six field goals. Flacco took a shot to his knee in the fourth quarter, and was evaluated by trainers on the sideline. He did not miss a snap, however.

With 18 touchdowns and 17 interceptions this season, Flacco will play the Patriots in Week 16.


Dennis Pitta not enough to make Joe Flacco a Fantasy starter


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2013) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco enters Monday night's game at Detroit happy to have tight end Dennis Pitta back in the lineup. Flacco targeted Pitta 11 times in his season debut last week, connecting six times for 48 yards and a touchdown.

Pitta boosts Flacco's Fantasy value, but not enough to make him a starter. Flacco still has more turnovers (19) than touchdowns (18), and he hasn't thrown for 300 yards since Week 6.

The Lions rank in the middle of the pack defending quarterbacks, giving up 18.3 Fantasy points per game. In seven career games against NFC North opponents, Flacco has averaged 248 passing yards with 14 touchdowns against eight interceptions. He hasn't faced the Lions since 2009.

As is the case nearly every week, play Flacco only as a QB2.


Joe Flacco caps off crazy ending with game-winning score


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco had two fourth-quarter touchdowns, including the game winner with 4 seconds remaining, helping Baltimore edge Minnesota, 29-26, in what ended up being a crazy ending Week 14. Flacco completed 28 of 50 passes for 245 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions.

Flacco had a pretty rough first half, completing just 9 of 22 passes for 82 yards and one interception, which came on the opening drive as he badly underthrew Bernard Pierce as a heavy snow was coming down. Flacco did have a 1-yard touchdown pass to Ed Dickson in the first quarter, but it was one of his few first-half highlights. Flacco also had a 22-yard scramble down to the 3-yard line a few plays before Dickson's touchdown catch.

The second half didn't get off to a much better start for Flacco, who threw an interception late in the third quarter and led no scoring drives in the third quarter. Flacco had another interception midway through the fourth quarter, but this one wasn't his fault as Jacoby Jones allowed a catchable pass to sail threw his hands. The deflection was picked off by Marcus Sherels.

Luckily for Baltimore, Flacco stepped up when his team needed him the most. He led a nine-play, 64-yard scoring drive late in the fourth quarter, which ended with a 1-yard touchdown pass to Dennis Pitta on 4th-and-goal. The lead would change hands five times in the final 2:05, starting with Pitta's touchdown, but the final lead change came when Flacco hit Marlon Brown in the back of the end zone with the game-winning, 9-yard touchdown with 4 seconds left.

The three touchdowns were a season-high for Flacco. The three interceptions were his second-highest total this season. The Ravens are back in action Week 15 at Detroit.


Week 14 might be a time to finally start Joe Flacco


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/3/2013) Fantasy owners haven't gotten many chances to start Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco in 2013 since Flacco has had a very inconsistent season. Though, Fantasy owners will have an interesting call to make on Flacco Week 14 since he has a favorable matchup against the Vikings.

Quarterbacks are averaging 24.8 Fantasy points per week against Minnesota, which is the highest average. Only three times in 12 games have quarterbacks failed to throw for multiple touchdowns against Minnesota. Quarterbacks have racked up 25 passing touchdowns to just eight interceptions, while averaging 300.4 passing yards per game.

Flacco's biggest issue this season has been the lack of reliable targets in the passing game outside of Torrey Smith. Help could be on the way Week 14 in the form of Dennis Pitta, who might make his season debut after recovering from a preseason hip injury. However, you have to figure he will be on a snap count in his debut, so can he really make a huge difference for Flacco?

If you have a playoff matchup Week 14, you have probably made it this far without relying on Flacco and probably have a better option to use at quarterback. Though, if you have a player like Russell Wilson (@SF), Ben Roethlisberger (vs. MIA), Philip Rivers (vs. NYG) or Colin Kaepernick (vs. SEA) with a tough matchup Week 14, then you might look toward a sleeper like Flacco. Still, if you are in that situation, you might consider Josh McCown (vs. DAL) or Alex Smith (@WAS), if they are available on waivers.


Joe Flacco avoids turning it over in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/29/2013) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco had another solid game in Week 13 against the Steelers Thursday, in a 22-20 win.

Flacco completed 24 of 35 passes for 251 yards in the game, and managed to avoid an interception for the first time in five games. He tossed one touchdown, a 7-yarder to Torrey Smith on the first drive of the game, shortly after an apparent score by the duo was overturned via replay.

Flacco had six touchdowns and six interceptions in his previous for games, but was able to get back on track Thursday. He is now at 15 touchdowns and 14 interceptions on the season, heading into Week 14 against the Vikings. 


Joe Flacco a poor Fantasy option in Week 13


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2013) It's not often that a Super Bowl-winning quarterback becomes a poor Fantasy play the following year, but such is the case with Joe Flacco. He hasn't exactly lit it up for the Ravens this season.

Flacco has yet to toss three touchdowns in any game. He has thrown for 14 scores and 14 interceptions on the year. His 273-yard total against the Jets on Sunday was his highest in five weeks. He has yet to score a touchdown on the ground. And he has been sacked 17 times in the last four games.

It all adds up to a no-play Thursday night against visiting Pittsburgh, which is far superior against the pass than the run. The Steelers rank 10th in the NFL in yards allowed through the air (2,468) and seventh in touchdown passes surrendered (13).

Perhaps Flacco will rise to the occasion on Thanksgiving night at home against a heated AFC North rival, but don't count on it. A taut defensive struggle is more likely. None of the CBSSports.com senior Fantasy writers even have Flacco listed among their top 24 quarterback plays this week. Take their advice and leave him out of your lineups.
