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.


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.


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.


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' 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.


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 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 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.

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.


Tyrod Taylor entrenched ahead of Keith Wenning


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/14/2014) The Ravens drafted Keith Wenning in the sixth round to vie with Tyrod Taylor for the backup job behind quarterback Joe Flacco. But in minicamps, Wenning did not appear ready to challenge Taylor, reports the Baltimore Sun.

The paper expects Wenning to serve as the No. 3 quarterback this season while Taylor finishes out his rookie contract.


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."


Ravens 'a little disappointed' in Tyrod Taylor's performance


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2014) Ravens coach John Harbaugh confirmed the team wants to upgrade at backup quarterback. Tyrod Taylor is entering the final year of his contract and has never completed 60 percent of his passes in the preseason, notes ESPN.com.

"We've been very happy with Tyrod, and we feel like he has a great future, but we have been a little disappointed how he's played in games certainly," Harbaugh told the website. "We feel like he's a lot better than he's showed. I know he feels that way, too. We feel like Tyrod's best football is by far definitely in front of him, but he's only got one year left with us, so we need to add a quarterback into the mix, whether it be offseason or in the draft.”
