Ravens' Joe Flacco says no to Pro Bowl invite due to birth of child


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2015) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco will not play in the 2015 Pro Bowl not because he wasn’t invited, but because he turned downed the invitation, reports ESPN.com.

Flacco’s wife is due to deliver their third child Tuesday and he said he prefers to be there for his wife during the delivery. Andy Dalton took Flacco’s spot on the Pro Bowl roster. The game will be played Sunday in Arizona.


Ravens QB Joe Flacco throws four touchdowns in losing effort


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/10/2015) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco threw for 292 yards with four touchdowns and two interceptions in Baltimore's 35-31 loss to New England. 

It was Flacco's fourth postseason game with at least three touchdown passes and his first interceptions since 2011 in the playoffs. Flacco connected with wide receiver Kamar Aiken for a 19-yard touchdown on the team's opening drive. He followed that with a touchdown to Steve Smith Sr. from nine yards away.

Flacco then hit tight end Owen Daniels in the back of the end zone for an 11-yard score and finished his scoring by finding running back Justin Forsett out of the backfield for a 16 yard touchdown.

With the game on the line, Flacco took a shot at the end zone, trying to find Torrey Smith, but was intercepted. 

"They had a new corner in there [Logan Ryan] and that safety [Duron Harmon] was cheating that way a little bit," Flacco said. "But I thought I might be able to sneak the ball in there and take a shot at the end zone and get us some points on the board there, with Torrey [Smith] on a good matchup, even though they were cheating to his side a little bit. So, I took my shot, and it just didn’t work out. Didn’t get it there." 


Joe Flacco throws a pair of touchdowns in win over Pittsburgh


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/3/2015) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco threw for 259 yards and two touchdowns in Baltimore's 30-17 win over the Steelers Saturday.

With the Ravens up 13-9, Flacco scrambled around and found wide receiver Torrey Smith in the back of the end zone for a touchdown. 

Then, after a Pittsburgh turnover, Flacco connected with tight end Crockett Gillmore for a 21 yard touchdown on the very first play of the drive. 

It was Flacco's sixth post season game throwing for at least 250 yards. 

The Ravens will head to New England for the divisional round of the playoffs next week.


Ravens QB Flacco turns boos into cheers with big fourth


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) Boos rained down upon Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco for three quarters Sunday against Cleveland, but he turned them into cheers in an explosive fourth in leading his team to a victory and playoff berth.

Flacco missed on his first three attempts of the game and things didn't get much better. His team trailed 10-3 after three as he was just 14 of 27 for 151 yards to that point. But he sizzled thereafter, completing 8 of 9 for 161 yards and two scores in the fourth. He hit Torrey Smith against strong coverage on a perfectly thrown 53-yarder to set up a 16-yard touchdown to the same receiver. He then found Kamar Aiken for a 2-yard score to clinch the win.

He finishes the regular season with career-highs in touchdowns (26) and yards passing (3,986).


Ravens' Joe Flacco struggles mightily in loss to Texans


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Along with the rest of the offense, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco had one of his worst games of the season during a 25-13 loss to the Texans Sunday.

"We got our [butt] kicked," Flacco said. "It's really simple."

The Ravens did not gain a first down until the third quarter and Flacco had a passer rating of zero at halftime. Flacco’s three interceptions were a season high and his first multiple interception game since the Week 8 loss to Cincinnati. He has not thrown multiple touchdowns without an interception in a game since Nov. 30.

Flacco completed 21 of his 50 pass attempts for 195 yards, but was able to throw two touchdowns to Torrey Smith in the second half.

The Ravens host the Browns Week 17.


Joe Flacco falters down the stretch


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco put together arguably his worst performance of the season together at the worst possible time for Fantasy owners, as he faltered in a Week 16 loss to the Texans.

Flacco, who had more touchdowns than interceptions in each of his previous six games, was a disaster Sunday, as he was intercepted three times before tossing a pair of second-half touchdowns. He completed just 21 of 50 passes for 195 yards, for his worst completion percentage since 2011.

Flacco had consecutive 20-Fantasy-point games as recently as Week 13 and 14, but has stumbled down the stretch, combining for 27 in Weeks 15 and 16. He has certainly improved on his dismal 2013 showing, already matching a career-high in touchdown passes, but Flacco showed once again this season to be an unreliable Fantasy quarterback, posting just four 20-plus Fantasy point games in 15 tries. 


Ravens' Joe Flacco finds the end zone once Week 15


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco tossed one touchdown Week 15 against the Jaguars. 

Flacco completed 20 of 30 passes for 221 yards and a score. He was fairly efficient throughout the game, as he averaged 7.4 yards per completion. Flacco wasn't bothered much by the Jacksonville defense. He was not scaked during the contest. Flacco did have four rushing attempts, gaining 8 yards.

He'll look for more Week 16 against the Texans.


Joe Flacco helps lead Ravens to victory Sunday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) After going three-and-out on the team’s first three possessions, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco was able overcome his early struggles to lead the Ravens to a 28-13 victory over the Dolphins Sunday.

Flacco completed 25 of his 33 passes for 269 yards and two touchdowns. While Flacco struggled for much of the first half, he was able to lead the team on a 97-yard touchdown drive at the end of the half.

Flacco did throw an unnecessary interception in the end zone which ended his streak of 126 passes without an interception. He rushed for 16 yards on seven attempts including a 1-yard touchdown run.

The Ravens host the Jaguars Week 15.


Ravens QB Joe Flacco held to 225 passing yards in losing effort


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco fired a pair of touchdown passes but it wasn't enough at home against the Chargers in Week 13.

Flacco fired a 16-yard touchdown pass to Torrey Smith on the opening drive of the game. He found Smith again for a 10-yard strike in the third quarter for his second score of the game. 

Flacco compiled 225 yards through the air while completing 19 of 31 pass attempts. He added two touchdowns and no interception, registering a 104.9 passer rating. He has been held under 250 passing yards in his last three games.

Flacco will look to bounce back Week 14 at Miami.


Joe Flacco highly accurate in MNF victory


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco completed a season-high 75 percent of his throws in Monday's 34-27 win at New Orleans. Flacco hit 18 of 24 throws for 243 yards and a touchdown with no interceptions, and he added a 3-yard rush.

In the first quarter, Flacco looked for wideout Steve Smith and he made a ridiculous 15-yard touchdown catch in tight coverage. Flacco didn't need to throw too much as the Ravens ran wild, gaining 7.0 yards per carry.

Flacco has just four touchdown passes over his last four games entering Week 13 against the Chargers.


Ravens QB Joe Flacco has modest afternoon in Week 10 win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) The Ravens didn't need a huge performance from quarterback Joe Flacco to sneak past the Titans Week 10. Flacco completed 16 of 27 passes for 169 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in a 21-7 win.

Running back Justin Forsett was the star on offense for Baltimore, rushing for 112 yards and two touchdowns. Flacco didn't get his only touchdown until he connected with Torrey Smith for a 32-yard score early in the fourth quarter.

Sunday was the fifth time Flacco had one or no passing touchdowns this season. He has failed to surpass 200 passing yards three times this season, including twice in the last three games.

The Ravens are on a bye Week 11 before returning to action Week 12 at New Orleans.


Joe Flacco still tough to rely on


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has had a bit of an up-and-down right recently, a trend that could continue in Week 10 against the Titans.

Flacco had 22 Fantasy points against the Steelers last week, his third with at least 18 over the last five games. However, he also has games of just 4 and 8 Fantasy points in that stretch, and is going up against an above-average Titans pass defense Sunday.

The Titans are averaging an interception per game this season, and opposing quarterbacks have just three more passing touchdowns than turnovers through eight games. They are allowing 18.5 Fantasy points per game to passers, the 13th-lowest figure in the league.

Inconsistency has defined Flacco throughout his career, so it shouldn't be much of a surprise that he has been up and down recently. He might have a good week, but Fantasy owners can probably find better matchups for Week 10 to rely on. 


As Steve Smith goes, so goes Joe Flacco


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/3/2014) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco's biggest games this season, at least in terms of yardage, were Weeks 1, 4 and 6. Not so coincidentally, those were also wide receiver Steve Smith's biggest games. He had seven catches for 118 yards and a touchdown Week 1 against Cincinnati, seven catches for 139 yards and two touchdowns Week 4 against Carolina and five catches for 110 yards and a touchdown Week 6 at Tampa Bay.

He had five catches for 36 yards Week 9 at Pittsburgh, when Flacco had his fourth-best game in terms of yardage, finishing with 303. But while Flacco had three and five touchdown passes in Weeks 4 and 6, respectively, he had only two in this one. Yes, with his team trailing 22-10 after two quarters and every incentive to air it out in the second half, the best he could do is 303 yards and two touchdowns.

Why not better? He didn't get Smith involved, or at least the two didn't hook up downfield like they did with regularity at the beginning of the season. Smith's speed makes him a threat to score every time he touches the ball, and Flacco benefited from that as much as Smith himself in Weeks 1, 4 and 6. But when Smith fails to deliver, Flacco is limited to numbers somewhere in the Brian Hoyer range.

At wide receiver, you can put up with Smith's inconsistencies because it's to be expected for any player outside of the top tier, but at quarterback, with all the depth at the position, you need a consistent, reliable performer. And Flacco isn't it.


Ravens QB Joe Flacco tallies 303 yards, 2 TDs in Week 9 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2014) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco completed 30 of his 45 pass attempts for 303 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in his team's 43-23 loss to the Steelers in Week 9.

Flacco struck first, hitting Torrey Smith for a 35-yard touchdown in the first quarter, but the Ravens would be outscored 22-3 in the second quarter en route to a blowout loss. While the Baltimore quarterback wasn't able to keep up with another huge performance by Ben Roethlisberger, Flacco has thrown for 300 yards or more in four of his team's nine games while racking up 16 touchdowns and tossing just eight interceptions. He'll return home to face the Titans in Week 10.


Joe Flacco showing his true colors


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/26/2014) When Joe Flacco threw five touchdown passes Week 6 at Tampa Bay, I was one of those he believed he might be on the verge of a career season, buying the chemistry between him and new wide receiver Steve Smith and believing the Ravens would continue to use Justin Forsett as more of a pass catcher.

The two games since then have shown I couldn't have been more wrong.

Not that he was so bad in Week 7, but against the Falcons defense, a 1-to-1 touchdown-to-interception ratio is nothing to celebrate. And then came the disaster of Week 8 at Cincinnati, when he completed just 50 percent of his passes for 195 yards and two interceptions.

That's two touchdowns to four interceptions with an average of 226.5 yards in two games -- hardly the makings of a career season.

Of course, these last two games have been two of Smith's quietest, which probably isn't a coincidence. He certainly has more 100-yard performances in his future, and Flacco will benefit from those. But with so much depth at quarterback, Flacco's inconsistencies make him little more than a bye-week replacement in Fantasy.


Ravens QB Joe Flacco throws two INTs in loss vs. Bengals


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco completed just 17 of his 34 pass attempts for 195 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions in his team's 27-24 loss to the Bengals in Week 8.

Flacco, who added 12 yards on two rushes, wasn't able to connect with Torrey Smith in the game and had to play a significant portion of the second half without the starting receiver. With the offense also down to Crockett Gilmore at tight end, the quarterback had difficulty moving the ball through the air with any regularity. Flacco's 5.7 yards-per-attempt mark in the loss was similar to his performance over the first two weeks of the season, including a Week 1 loss to the Bengals, but he had delivered a YPC mark of over 10.0 in three of his previous four games before struggling in Week 8.

Flacco and the Ravens stay on the road in Week 9 to face the Steelers.


Joe Flacco throws for two TDs in Ravens' Week 7 win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco threw two touchdowns and two interceptions during a 29-7 win Week 7 vs. Atlanta. Flacco completed 16 of 25 passes for 258 yards, while rushing for 4 yards on one carry.

Flacco got off to a quick start Sunday, as he finished off the team's opening drive with a 5-yard touchdown pass to Owen Daniels. While the Ravens built a 17-0 halftime lead, Flacco didn't get his second touchdown pass until the team's final offensive drive in the fourth quarter. On a fourth-and-9 with 1:46 left, Flacco connected with Torrey Smith for a 39-yard touchdown.

Flacco came close to a three-touchdown game Sunday, but he was intercepted in the end zone on a third-and-9 play from the Falcons' 16-yard line late in the third quarter.

The Ravens are back in action Week 8 at Cincinnati.


Joe Flacco looking to keep soaring vs. Falcons


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has rebounded nicely from a lost 2013 season, and now ranks eighth among quarterbacks in Fantasy scoring through six games. Can he keep it going in Week 7 against the Falcons?

Flacco torched the Buccaneers last week, and will look to keep it going against another NFC South opponent. The Falcons opened the season looking like an improved pass defense, as they held their first three opponents to 15.0 Fantasy points per game from the quarterback position. However, each of their last three have topped 20 points, with four total touchdowns and no turnovers over that stretch.

Flacco has faced the Falcons just once, back in 2010, so we probably cannot take much out of his 25-point effort. Still, the Falcons' pass defense is reeling at the same time Flacco is taking off, so Fantasy owners should consider him a solid starting option this week. 


Big game the start of something for Joe Flacco?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/12/2014) Most likely, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco just had his best game of the season Week 6 at Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers ranked 30th against the pass coming into the game, having been shredded by the Falcons' Matt Ryan on Thursday night just a couple weeks ago, and Flacco himself is not Peyton Manning or Drew Brees heading up one of the most prolific passing games in the NFL.

But he gave everyone a reminder of what kind of weapons the Ravens have with his five-touchdown performance Sunday.

Steve Smith we already knew about. He contributed one of those touchdowns in usual Steve Smith-fashion, beating the defense on a 56-yard bomb early in the second quarter. But Torrey Smith, who seemed to have vanished from the offense for the first five weeks, also got in on the act, catching the first two of Flacco's touchdowns.

With the Ravens' running game still searching for its identity -- and seemingly the best of their options, Justin Forsett, thriving as a pass catcher as well -- Flacco might be asked to make better use of those weapons going forward. And while he may not be as successful against premier defenses, the Ravens host the Falcons in Week 7.

If you've gotten burned at quarterback so far, maybe Flacco is a better choice than someone like Ben Roethlisberger or Andy Dalton.


Ravens backup pass catchers find a way Week 6


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) The Ravens backup pass catchers found a way to contribute Week 6. 

Michael Campanaro managed to catch one of Joe Flacco's many touchdowns Sunday. He pulled in two passes for 28 yards. Kamar Aiken also hauled in a touchdown. He finished with two catches for 20 yards before leaving with a concussion.

Owen Daniels also had two receptions, but finished third on the team with 34 yards. Kyle Juszczyk also caught two passes, gaining 29 yards. Crockett Gillmore gained 16 yards on two receptions.

They'll take on the Falcons Week 7.


Ravens' Joe Flacco dominates during the first half


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco dominated during the first half Week 6.

Flacco wasted no time getting to work, tossing a touchdown on his second attempt of the game. He would throw his second touchdown just two attempts later. In fact, the team's first four drives ended in Joe Flacco touchdown passes, tying a career-high. He didn't stop there, finding Steve Smith on a 56 yard strike in the second quarter. At halftime, Flacco had already thrown for five touchdowns. 

Flacco finished 21 of 29 with 306 yards and five touchdowns. He did not turn the ball over during the contest. Flacco will look for more Week 7 against the Falcons. 


Ravens QB Joe Flacco held out of the end zone in Week 5 defeat


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco endured a rough outing as he was held out of the end zone in a Week 5 loss to the Colts in Indianapolis on Sunday.

Flacco was picked off by Vontae Davis in the third quarter, which resulted in an Indianapolis touchdown. He compiled 235 yards through the air while completing 22 of 38 passes. He was picked once, sacked four times and finished with a 65.1 passer rating in a 20-13 defeat.

Flacco has been held under 250 passing yards in three of his last four games. He will look to turn things around in Week 6 at Tampa Bay.


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.
