Joe Flacco bounces back from slow start Saturday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco got off to a slow start but bounced back with a solid performance Saturday night against Washington in preseason action.

Flacco bounced back from a rough start and completed 6 of 8 passes for 74 yards on his final drive of the first half. He found Steve Smith for a 24-yard touchdown strike in the second quarter.

Flacco was not needed in the second half. He compiled 180 yards through the air while completing 16 of 23 passes. He added a touchdown, no interceptions and registered a passer rating of 107.2. He was sacked twice.

Joe Flacco throws touchdown vs. Cowboys Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco went 9 for 17 with 113 passing yards and a touchdown in Saturday's preseason game against the Cowboys.

Flacco was stuck on the sidelines early in the game, as he watched his defense and special teams each score a touchdown before he stepped on the field. He was able to lead three scoring drives in the second quarter, finishing one with a 19-yard strike to Torrey Smith, and heading into halftime with a 27-10 lead. Flacco did a nice job in limited action during his first preseason action, and though he posted a low completion percentage Saturday, he did keep the offense moving in the first half.


Joe Flacco comfortable in new offense


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco looked right at home Thursday in the new offense installed by Gary Kubiak. Playing only one drive, Flacco drove Baltimore 80 yards for a touchdown on 10 plays.

It was perfectly balanced. Flacco hit 4 of 5 throws for 52 yards, connecting with four different receivers, and Baltimore ran five times for 38 yards. Flacco's first pass was a well designed clear-out for tight end Dennis Pitta, who gained 14 yards.

Flacco plays his second preseason game Saturday, Aug. 16 at Dallas.


Joe Flacco 'in total command' of new offense


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) New coordinator Gary Kubiak said he loves the way quarterback Joe Flacco is running the offense he's installing with the Ravens.

"It's kind of the third time we're going through our system, teaching it, and I think they've adjusted very well, but the most important thing is [Flacco] has adjusted extremely well," Kubiak told the Baltimore Sun. "He's got to lead the pack. He's done that from day one. He's got total command of what's going on right now."

Kubiak said Flacco is demonstrating good footwork and looks sharp in the short passing game.

"His ability to go through progressions, to me, is exceptional," Kubiak said. "Obviously, we've got to cut the sacks down a great deal this year. It's a big point of emphasis. The best way to do that is with your quarterback getting rid of the ball."


Kubiak sees a lot of upside with Joe Flacco


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/11/2014) New Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak is impressed with quarterback Joe Flacco, reports the team's official website.

"I had no idea how good an athlete he is. He's a very good athlete," Kubiak said.

Kubiak likes to have his quarterbacks get out of the pocket on play-action passes, and Flacco could shine in this system.

"The things we like to do moving around, the zone-pass schemes that we like to run, I think fit to a lot of his strengths," Kubiak said. "We just need to continue to get better with them."

Even though Kubiak likes the way Flacco moves, the key is his arm strength.

"I knew [his arm] was good, but I had no idea just how good it was," Kubiak said. "The big ball is always in play with Joe. … This league is about making big plays. It’s hard [when you go] 3 or 4 yards a pop to do it. You have to make some big plays, and Joe gives you the ability to do that."


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

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.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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.”
