Flacco is such a fantasy afterthought that backup Lamar Jackson has a higher ADP. That will happen when you toss 196.3 passing yards per game with 18 TDs and 5.72 YPA. It's nevertheless highly unlikely Baltimore benches a Super Bowl champion who has started every game since drafted a decade ago. (Ask the Giants how that will go.) He was actually QB7 over the final six weeks and has earned rave reviews through August, but Flacco is no more than a healthy placeholder in two-quarterback leagues.Bradford has boasted a 68.6 completion % over the past three seasons, so he could deliver sneaky value in two-QB leagues. Yet he has not played 16 games in 2012, and Josh Rosen is waiting for his turn.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Jackson has been so dreadful this preseason that Flacco is at no risk of losing his job quite yet, and has actually looked like the best version of himself this preseason. The receiver core is upgraded enough that Flacco may return some value in two-QB leagues while he is the starter.Bradford is no lock to hold his job through the pre-season and we know he is as injury prone as they come, but if he does end up starting, Bradford offers much more than the general public will remember. He is by no means a QB1 or even close, but he does have the best QB-rating over his past 16 starts than anyone in the NFL.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
Flacco will have to play well to start the season to keep Lamar Jackson from taking over.We'll have to keep an eye on the quarterback competition in Arizona, but if Rosen can look competent, he probably has the edge to start.
Staff Rankings
QB List
After the performance he put on last year, it's pretty clear that the Joe Flacco era is coming to an end in Baltimore pretty quickly. Flacco has typically been seen in his career as a big arm, deep ball thrower (and he has been), but last year that wasn't the case. Flacco opted for safe throws a lot more, and when he did throw deep, he didn't do well, posting a 49.7 QB rating on go routes and a 37% adjusted completion percentage on deep balls, good for 26th out of 35 qualifying quarterbacks. And on top of all that, he posted a miserable -19.3% DVOA, good for sixth-worst in the NFL among quarterbacks with at least 200 passes. The good news (if there is any for Flacco) is that the Ravens improved their offense this offseason, signing Michael Crabtree, Willie Snead, and John Brown, giving them a solid receiving corps. Not only that, but they added Hayden Hurst in the NFL draft-a big, solid receiving tight end. He's got the weapons, it just doesn't seem like he has the skills anymore, and Lamar Jackson is knocking on his door.

I'd was betting on a bounce-back season, but even the fans are out for blood.Major injury concern or he'd be top-15
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Flacco has been painfully average and once again he's got a slew of overrated wide receivers. Maybe the arrival of Lamar Jackson gets him going but even so, I'm not buyingIn theory, Bradford could be a steal. He does have Josh Rosen breathing down his neck and his knees could give at any moment, though
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
If there was ever one thing that Flacco had going for him, it was job stability. You knew that by drafting him as your No. 2 quarterback in a 2QB league, he wasn't going to get benched. Now that the Ravens have drafted Lamar Jackson, those days are over. Flacco did get some increased weaponry in Michael Crabtree, John Brown, Hayden Hurst, Mark Andrews, and Willie Snead, but is it too little, too late? He's now finished as the QB20 or worse in three straight seasons and it's hard to trust him as anything more than a streaming QB2. After being given $20 million despite not having a clean bill of health, Bradford seemed like he was a lock to start for the Cardinals this year. After they landed Josh Rosen in the first-round, things are a bit cloudier, as he was widely considered as the most pro-ready quarterback in the class. By selecting Bradford (even in 2QB leagues), you're playing with fire.

Hopefully for Baltimore's receivers and running backs Flacco has a short leash 
Jody Smith
FantasyPros
This could be Flacco's last season in Baltimore and now he might lose red-zone snaps to Lamar Jackson. Bradford is one of the most accurate passers in the game and could be a great fit with Larry Fitzgerald, but he simply can't be relied upon to stay healthy and now has Josh Rosen right at his heels. Projecting Bradford to play even 12-13 games is a volatile strategy.
