Joe Flacco had a great start to the 2014 season, but has sputtered a bit the past four weeks. (Source: Baltimore Ravens
Fantasy Impact: Flacco threw 12 touchdowns and just three interceptions during the first six weeks, looking like he was on his way to a very good season. Heβs thrown five touchdowns and five interceptions in the next four games, seeing his yards per game drop to 231. Many fantasy owners bought high on Flacco after five first half touchdowns against the Buccaneers and his great connection with Steve Smith Sr; since that five touchdown performance, his connection with Smith has waned as well, as Smith is only averaging 3.5 catches per game in those four games. Flacco right now is not worth an add unless it is a deep fantasy league, but if he is able to get back on track with Smith, he may be a late season sleeper.

Joe Flacco put up 16 fantasy points against the Falcons today (10/19), completing 16 of 25 passes (64%) with 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions.
Fantasy Impact: The Ravens had the game pretty much in hand against the Falcons from the start so there was no need for Flacco to sling the ball around. It was a decent performance from Flacco as he remains a QB2 for fantasy purposes. The Ravens play at Cincinnati in Week 8 so look for a better option.

Joe Flacco was on pace for 16 touchdowns at the end of the first quarter but ended with 5. Flacco was easily the biggest breakout player of the week, completing 21 of 29 passes for 306 yards and committing zero turnovers.
Fantasy Impact: Flacco has been a sneaky player this year, often being lights out at home and iffy on the road. This breakout game in Tampa told otherwise though. Having one of, if not the deep ball in all of football, Joe Flacco makes for an enticing start against lackluster defenses. This week shouldn't change the fact, as they take on an inconsistent Falcons team at home.

Joe Flacco completed 35 of a whopping 62 passes for 345 yards, a touchdown and an interception last Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals. While his receivers did drop 8 passes, Flacco still started a horrific 3-for-12 and only saved his fantasy owners in the last 20 minutes of the game from a dud performance.
Fantasy Impact: We see that Joe Flacco can air it out when he needs to, but unlike the Top-2 tiers of QBs, Flacco does not necessarily deliver quality to go with his quantity. Last year Flacco threw for 466 yards with 2 TDs and no interceptions against the Steelers. Look for a similar type of production on a short week against their bitter rival.

Joe Flacco was 9-17 with 113 yards and a touchdown in limited preseason action on Saturday.
Fantasy Impact: Flacco will need to make major improvements this season if he aspires to fantasy football relevance. Nothing in Saturdays performance leads us to believe this is in the cards for Flacco. He was imprecise and accumulated his yards on check downs for small gains. Stay away.

After a slow start to Saturday's preseason game, which included going 1-for-6, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco finished the night going 9-for-17 with 113 yards and a TD.
Fantasy Impact: It was a scary start to the night. At one point Flacco averaged 0.4 YPA. After the first 2 drives, Flacco finished the game by going 8-for-11 with a TD to Torrey Smith. Flacco finished the night with a 93.5 passer rating.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport believes Joe Flacco has undergone a "technical and fundamental transformation." He also reports that Flacco is getting the ball out quicker in camp, and is primed for a bounce back season. (Source: NFL.com
Fantasy Impact: Flacco had arguably his worst professional season last year, with more sacks and interceptions than he's ever had. An upgraded supporting cast, including a healthy Dennis Pitta and the newly acquired Steve Smith, should aid in his efforts to bounce back. He's not a fantasy relevant quarterback option yet, but keep an eye on the offense the first half of the season.

Week 6 was interesting to say the least. Fantasy football aside, did you see Floyd Mayweather cashed in on a $600k bet on Denver at -7.5 after Geno Smith threw a pick-six at the end of the game. Personally, I’m never that lucky. Guess the old adage is true: “money goes to money.” Week 7 brings us some interesting matchups and with Philadelphia and Tampa Bay on a bye you may have ...
