According to reports from day one of Ravens' fall camp, QB Joe Flacco appeared comfortable running drills, "dropping back smoothly" while wearing a knee brace but looking otherwise like his pre-injury self. (Source: Baltimore Beatdown)

Fantasy Impact: Shortly after tearing his ACL against the Rams in November of last season, Flacco's availability for training camp was in question. His full participation this early in camp should reassure any fantasy players who questioned whether or not he would be available or rusty for the beginning of the regular season. Provided he's able to develop chemistry with the Ravens' "new" receivers Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman, Flacco could be looking at low-end QB1 production this fall.

Flacco was on pace for a career year in 2015 before he went down with an injury. Another Summer learning Marc Trestman's offense can't hurt either.

You always want to buy low in fantasy football, and one of the best ways to buy low with a high ceiling in a range of outcomes is to target star players coming off of disappointing seasons. Fantasy football owners tend to rank players coming off below-average or subpar seasons lower on their cheat sheets than they... Read More

Joe Flacco is not an elite QB, but he is still a very good QB. His current ADP of 138.0 may be depressed due to the ACL and MCL tears from last season. But Flacco is looking to be ready by opening day. He may be a little rusty in the first month of the season, but I'm OK with that as I am drafting him as my primary bye-week backup QB, or as an insurance in case my staring QB goes down to injury. Let's not forget that he is a former Super Bowl MVP and had a decent 2014 season with almost 4,000 passing yards, 27 TD passes, and 12 interceptions. His targets this season are WRs Steve Smith Sr., Mike Wallace, Kamar Aiken and TE Benjamin Watson. Look for some additional fantasy points from RBs Justin Forsett and rookie Kenneth Dixon.

System is there and he has the long ball but weapons could be just as shaky as last year.

Flacco took a major step backwards last season from an already mediocre stat line. This season he could leap back towards his previous figures thanks to a much improved wide receiver core, but with a ceiling of 3,600 yards and 25 touchdowns, there is no point on wasting a roster spot on him outside of the rare streaming QB start.

We know what Flacco is. He has a great arm, but he's not going to make every throw and win you games that way. Like Andy Dalton, he needs a full complement of good offensive players to succeed. Flacco has never finished in the Top-10 for fantasy quarterbacks, with his best being 13th. He's not going to change his spots with the receivers the Ravens have on the team now, and I'm going to take signal-callers who may end up with fewer fantasy points, but have the potential to put up much better numbers.
