QB - FA
Week 3 Outlook
Ryan Mallett went 3-for-7 for 20 yards and a touchdown in relief of Joe Flacco during the Ravens' 40-0 win over the Dolphins on Thursday.
After Flacco left the game with a concussion he suffered on a very dirty hit from Kiko Alonso, Mallett came in and led the Ravens into the end zone. Mallett isn't an intriguing fantasy option even if Flacco misses extended time though.
Ryan Mallett went 13-for-22 on Thursday night vs the Dolphins. He threw for 113 yards with one touchdown, and two interceptions.
Mallett had another less than stellar performance on Thursday. He completed 59% of his passes and threw two interceptions. The journey man backup struggled to move the offense most of the night, and if Joe Flacco were to miss regular season games it's safe to say the Ravens would be in trouble. They need an upgrade at their backup quarterback position.
Ryan Mallet has re-signed with the Ravens on Wednesday but the terms of the deal aren't known yet. Mallet will return as Joe Flacco's backup in Baltimore. Mallet has tossed seven touchdowns in his career to 10 interceptions.
Mallet isn't a great backup quarterback but likely returns on a cheap deal. Joe Flacco is durable so Mallet will likely remain on the bench. It wouldn't be surprising to see the Ravens draft a QB late in the draft.
Ryan Mallett was at the helm for three drives Thursday night, completing 8-of-12 passes for 65 yards.
Mallett was solid if unspectacular against the Saints, getting the Ravens into scoring position just once, a 46-yard field goal in the second quarter. While Josh Johnson had a nice game behind Ryan Mallett, it's unlikely he'll threaten for the backup QB job in Baltimore. Given starter Joe Flacco's relatively low fantasy ceiling, it isn't worth rostering Mallett in any format.
Ravens' backup QB Ryan Mallett looked quite good against the Detroit Lions, completing 10 of 15 passing attempts for 112 yards and one touchdown. Mallett added two yards rushing on two attempts and one rushing touchdown, as well.
Mallett looked sharp against the Lions' defense, making good decisions with the football and throwing into a couple tight windows successfully. His size was an advantage on two quarterbacks sneaks, scoring a touchdown on his first and converted a first down in the red zone later in the game. It's highly, highly unlikely Mallett would displace incumbent starter Joe Flacco, but it looks like the Ravens should be in capable hands in the event their franchise QB goes down with an injury, as he did at the end of last season.
