Flacco has adopted the Eli Manning label confusing many beginner fantasy players with the idea that because he has won a Super Bowl, hes going to be successful in my fantasy lineup. Wrong!   
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
Is Flacco the guy that lit the world on fire in the postseason and led the Ravens to an improbable Super Bowl title? Or is he the guy we've known for years before that, who will put up middle-of-the-road QB numbers and spare everyone to death in fantasy? We shall see.Freeman got off to a great start last season, as he had 18 TD passes and just five picks through the first nine games of the year. Then, he completely tanked to finish the year, and the Bucs' playoff odds did so along with him. Where's the 2010 Josh Freeman that threw just six INTs all year?  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Has been disappointing fantasy asset due to upside and with Boldin out of town/Pitta out for year, I am crossing off cheat sheetFresh off of a 4,000 yard, 27 TD season being ranked this low is a testament to strength at the QB position  
Kevin Roberts

Broncos D shouldn't be elite to start the year but its still Flacco on the road.Tough road matchup to get things going. Not a big fan of Freeman to begin with, so don't love him here.  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
During The Ravens playoff run Flacco was impossible to stop and the Broncos found that out as he threw for 331 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in a 38-35 overtime win. They used the run to set up the deep pass to Torrey Smith and it worked like a charm. This time around the Broncos are also missing Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil so Flacco should have a secure pocket. But I could see the Ravens trying to slow this game down and running it down their throats. He's an upside play, b...

BENCH - Denver gave up the 10th fewest fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 15.0.New York Jets gave up the 8th fewest fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 14.1.

Remember, he took Denver for 331 yards and 3 TDs in the playoffs.

Anquan Boldin was the best WR the Ravens had. They did not replace him, and who knows if Torrey Smith can really handle being the #1a/#1b WR for this team. Dennis Pitta will be active, but Pitta is not a Top 10 TE talent wise. The Ravens will have to lean on Ray Rice more than ever in 2013.Freeman is in a contract season. He also has an ELITE defense behind him for the first time in his career. This is Josh's best chance to earn a HUGE payday. Mike Williams and Vincent Jackson are two great HR WRs and Doug Martin demands everyone's attention. Big season for the Bucs in 2013.
