Week 17 Outlook
Joe Flacco fails to throw a touchdown pass in Week 17
Joe Flacco completed 32 of 49 passes for 267 yards and an interception on Sunday against the Bengals.
Flacco set a franchise record with 4,317 passing yards this season, but had a very rough 20:15 TD:INT ratio. Flacco will never be a great fantasy quarterback, but if the Ravens stick with a more pass-happy approach as they did in 2016, he should be a low-end QB2 for 2017.
Joe Flacco's late touchdown drive not enough for Ravens in Week 16
Joe Flacco completed 30-of-44 passes for 262 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Ravens' Week 16 loss to the Steelers.
Flacco and the Ravens struggled offensively in the first half. Flacco didn't do himself any favors with inaccurate throws that would have extended drives. In the second half, Flacco started hitting some of those throws, including an 18-yard touchdown to Steve Smith Sr. to help give Baltimore their first lead of the game in the third quarter. After falling behind late in the fourth quarter, Flacco led a long 14 play drive that set up a Kyle Juszczyk touchdown with just over a minute to go in the game. Unfortunately for Flacco and the Ravens, they were unable to hold the lead and were eliminated from playoff contention. Flacco and the Ravens head to Cincinnati in Week 17.
Joe Flacco capable against Eagles
Joe Flacco completed 16 of 30 pass attempts for 206 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception on Sunday afternoon.
The Ravens didn't lean on Flacco's arm this week, but he nevertheless delivered through the air with touchdown passes of five and 34 yards. He was particularly good against the Eagles' pressures, which bodes well for his potential against the Steelers and Bengals, both capable teams he must face in the next two weeks. Flacco is a QB2 streaming option for the fantasy championships.
Joe Flacco sets a franchise record for completions
Joe Flacco completed 37-of-52 passes for 324 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the Ravens’ Week 14 loss to the Patriots on Monday night.
Joe Flacco’s numbers look good, but don’t let them fool you. Flacco found it tough sailing in this one and was unable to move the ball down the field having to settled for his check-down options on a majority of his drop backs. The 37 completions are a franchise record, but if it wasn’t for a muffed punt by Cyrus Jones and a fumble on the ensuing kickoff by Mathew Slater that set Flacco and the Baltimore offense up in the red zone, the Ravens may not have ever found pay dirt in this game. Despite the underwhelming performance, Flacco has thrown six touchdowns and has gone for over 300 yards passing in back-to-back games and will be low end QB2 in Week 15 against the Eagles. However there should be better options available.
Joe Flacco lights up Dolphins for four TDs
Joe Flacco completed 36 of 47 passes Sunday afternoon against Miami for 381 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception.
Flacco did his best gunslinger impression against the Dolphins' secondary, completing passes to 10 different players in a dominating AFC win. It was a break in character from the majority of his performances this season when Flacco has been - from a fantasy standpoint - adequate at best. Unfortunately, it's difficult to predict when these outbursts will come from the Ravens' quarterback and he's best left on the bench or waiver wire in most leagues.
