Which QB's should you target on waivers?


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) With just two teams on bye and few teams dealing with serious injuries at the position, there aren't many needs to fill at quarterback this week. Still, Jamey Eisenberg's Week 5 Waiver-Wire column highlights a handful of names you might want to target before waivers run Wednesday morning.

Giants QB Eli Manning headlines the list of add-worthy quarterbacks, after he lit up Washington for five touchdowns last week. He was featured on the waiver-wire column last week as well. Carson Palmer (shoulder) of the Cardinals is also on the list, as is Joe Flacco of the Ravens, Alex Smith of the Chiefs, Blake Bortles of the Jaguars and Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) of the Vikings to round out the top-5.

Kirk Cousins, Jake Locker and Geno Smith are mentioned as potentially droppable options, if you need a roster spot. 


Joe Flacco throws three touchdowns in Week 4 win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco tossed three touchdowns, including two to veteran receiver Steve Smith, in Sunday's 38-10 rout of Carolina. Flacco completed 22 of 31 passes for 327 yards and no interceptions, while rushing for 3 yards on one carry.

Flacco did most of his damage by halftime, as he completed 13 of 21 passes for 228 yards and had a quarterback rating of 130.7 in the first half. Flacco also had both of his touchdown passes to Smith in the second quarter. The first one was a 61-yard touchdown pass that Smith took to the house after catching a deflection off tight end Owen Daniels' hands. The second touchdown was a 21-yard pass to Smith with 1:53 left in the first half, which came after Flacco picked up a fumbled snap.

Flacco threw for multiple touchdowns for the second time in four games. He has seven passing touchdowns to two interceptions this season. The Ravens are back in action Week 5 at Indianapolis. 


Ravens' Week 4 game not all about Steve Smith vs. former team


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/25/2014) The storyline building for Sunday's Panthers and Ravens showdown centers around Baltimore veteran receiver Steve Smith facing his former team for the first time since leaving Carolina in the offseason.

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is well aware Smith will be looking to have a good outing against the team he spent the first 13 years of his career with, but he also realizes in order for Baltimore to have success, the team can't get caught up in Smith's personal agenda.

"If I pay attention to that maniac on Sunday, who knows how I’m going to play?" Flacco said, per ESPN. "He’s going to want the ball -- probably every single down -- and if I don’t get it to him, and I pay attention to how he reacts to that, then I’m going to be in trouble, and I’m going to feel bad, and then we’re not going to play the way we should."

Smith is fine with Flacco calling him a "maniac" because he realizes Flacco knows he plays "with a passion." The two have already built good rapport through three games, as Smith has totaled 18 catches for 290 yards and one touchdown.

"When you have a guy that runs routes and is in the right place and gets open, it’s tough not to have chemistry with him," Flacco said.


Joe Flacco comes in big in crunch time for defeat of Browns


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco put up mediocre numbers Sunday in Cleveland, but one perfect pass all but sealed a victory.

Flacco hit wide receiver Steve Smith with a pinpoint strike for 33 yards with just over a minute remaining to set up the game-winning field goal. He hit Smith in stride to allow him to leave the field happy despite having completed just 19 of 31 passes for 217 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

The veteran did hit on 10 consecutive throws in the second half. He managed to pass for just 86 yards before intermission, though he did find fullback/tight end Kyle Juszczyk for a 9-yard score six minutes into the second quarter. His interception came off a wounded duck when he was hit on a pass early in the fourth quarter, but it resulted in no points.

Flacco will seek more heroics when his team hosts Carolina in Week 4.


Joe Flacco ready to roll in Week 3


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) As expected, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has been given the green light to play Sunday in Cleveland. He had been designated as probable with an illness that kept him sidelined Wednesday. He will be battling the 28th-ranked pass defense in the NFL.


Ravens release injury report for game in Cleveland


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) Ravens running back Bernard Pierce has been listed as questionable for the Sunday game in Cleveland with a thigh injury. He is the lone Baltimore player so designated Friday.

Deemed doubtful is defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan (knee). The probables are quarterback Joe Flacco (illness), cornerbacks Lardarius Webb (back) and Asa Jackson (concussion) and offensive lineman Eugene Monroe (knee).


Joe Flacco able to get through full practice Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/18/2014) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco was able to get through full practice Thursday.

Flacco did not practice Wednesday due to an illness. The fact that he returned in full bodes well for Flacco playing Week 3. 


Joe Flacco back at practice Thursday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/18/2014) After missing Wednesday's practice due to an illness, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco returned to practice Thursday. The Ravens are preparing to play AFC North rival Cleveland Week 3.

Joe Flacco misses practice Wednesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco was absent from practice Wednesday, but coach John Harbaugh chose not to update his status. Though, The Baltimore Sun reported Flacco sat out Wednesday due to an illness.

Joe Flacco throws two touchdowns Week 2


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2014) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco tossed two touchdowns Week 2 against the Steelers.

Flacco completed 21 of 29 passes for 166 yards. He did not throw any interceptions during the contest. Flacco didn't have to do much during the contest. While he was efficient, he didn't air out the ball all that much. His longest pass play went for 24 yards. Both Flacco's touchdowns came from short distances. He found Owen Daniels on a 2 yard touchdown in the first quarter, and added a 1 yard touchdown to Daniels again in the third.

Flacco will take on the Browns Week 3. 


Joe Flacco not sharp in season opener


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco got off to a slow start in Week 1 against the Bengals, but found his stride late in a 23-16 loss Sunday.

As late as the mid-fourth quarter, Flacco had completed just half of his pass attempts, but ended up 35 for 62 overall. He passed for 345 yards and a touchdown, with a bunch chunk coming on an 80-yard score to Steve Smith. He also turned the ball over once on an interception.

Flacco was hoping to bounced back from a poor 2013 season, so this is an inauspicious start. He will hope for better results when the Ravens take on the Steelers Thursday in Week 2. 


Joe Flacco a risk for Week 1 after last season's struggles


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco struggled through one of the worst seasons of his career a year ago, and that extended to his two games against division foes Cincinnati. He will hope for better results when he takes on the Bengals Sunday in a Week 1 matchup.

Flacco had just 20 combined Fantasy points in two games against the Bengals last season, despite chucking up 86 passes. He accounted for just 332 yards and three touchdowns in the games, while turning the ball over six times in those games.

Flacco got a bit more help in the passing game this offseason, but we haven't quite seen how the offense is going to look with those new faces. Flacco should be better than he was a year ago, but he is still something of a risk, especially against a defense that allowed just 15.1 Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks last season. Consider him more of a low-end No. 2 Fantasy option for Week 1. 


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.
