Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
Flacco has thrown for just a single touchdown over the last two weeks in tough road matchups with Cleveland and Tennessee. He stands a decent change of getting back on track this week, however, as he returns home to face a Saints defense that has given up the third-most fantasy points to QBs. He's a high-end QB2 and reasonable streaming candidate in single QB leagues. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After throwing five touchdowns the first two weeks, he's simmered down and thrown four of them over the last four weeks despite a somewhat favorable schedule. There are many who will say Flacco is one of the best streamers this week, though I'm not sure I'd subscribe to him as a sure thing. The Saints defense had been brutal through the first three weeks allowing 10 passing scores and 11.2 yards per attempt, to just one passing touchdown and 6.6 yards per attempt the last two weeks. It's not as if they played Josh Allen, either. They made Alex Smith look as bad as he ever has (bounced back in Week 6 against the Panthers) and Eli Manning was… well… Eli Manning. But still, the defense we saw the first three weeks would've allowed 30-plus points to almost anyone, and they've now allowed just 37 combined points the last two games. They're also coming off their bye week which should've given them time to regroup and become the defense we expected them to be. They have generated three sacks in each of their last four games, so I don't think this is a cakewalk for Flacco. He's a middling QB2 and one who could disappoint if the Saints are the defense we thought they were.  
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
 Averaging 0.1 fewer fantasy point per game than Tom Brady, Beathard has tossed two passing touchdowns in all three starts since replacing Jimmy Garoppolo. As double-digit home underdogs against the Rams, he could compile garbage-time yards against a team that has let each of the last four opposing quarterbacks finish the week as a top-15 scorer. He's not the worst desperation play with a healthy Marquise Goodwin in the mix.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Saints are just 28th against fantasy quarterbacks, Flacco should be a QB2 playing at home against this struggling defense.
