2012 Pros and Cons

(+) Flacco has great weapons in the passing game (Boldin, Smith & Rice)


(+) 2nd year receiver Torrey Smith finally emerged as the team’s deep threat in his rookie season, something this offense was certainly lacking


(+) Flacco has a strong arm and is one of a handful of QB’s that can make an accurate NFL throw from sideline to sideline


(+) Flacco showed his abilities against rival Pittsburgh throwing for 524 yards and 4 TD in their 2 games  


(-) After three straight seasons of increasing performance Flacco seemed to hit a plateau 


(-) Ray Rice has become such a focal point that Flacco is asked to be a game manager


(-) Flacco had 7 games where he failed to throw for 200 yards and 3 others where he failed to reach 230 yards


(-) Anquan Boldin is not in his prime anymore and it is not clear who is the next player ready to step up

2009 Review

Flacco started out the 2009 season on fire.  He had seven straight games with TD passes, four of them with multiple TDs, and three 300-yard games during the stretch.  Unfortunately, the one thing that could stifle his run came next… the dreaded momentum-stopping bye week.  Over his final nine games, Flacco could muster up just two multiple-TD passing games and zero 300-yard games.  However, those final couple of 2+ TD passing games did come in the fantasy playoffs (Weeks 15 & 16), so all was not lost for the sophomore QB.  He improved in nearly every statistic he could from his rookie year to 2009, but his second-half tumble kept him from scratching fantasy starter status in the end.


~ Ranked 17th in the league in QB fantasy points with 206.1 (basic scoring system)


~ Tied for 15th in the league with 21 passing touchdowns


~ Ranked 13th in the league with a 88.9 QB Rating


~ Ranked eleventh in the league with a 63.1% completion percentage


~ Ranked 17th in the league with 225.8 passing yards per game


~ Ranked 15th in the league with 315 completions


~ Ranked 15th in the league with 499 attempts


~ Ranked 15th in the league with 3,613 passing yards


~ Ranked 14th in the league in yards/attempt (7.24)


~ Set career bests in completions (315), attempts (499), completion percentage (63.1%), yards (3,613), passing TDs (21), yards/attempt (7.2), yards/game (225.8), and QB Rating (88.9)

2010 Fantasy Outlook

If nothing had changed in Baltimore during this past offseason, we’d be hard-pressed to tell you that Flacco was anything more than a low-end fantasy backup QB.  However, when “Eyebrows” Joe (some have taken to “Bazooka” Joe, but “Eyebrows” seems a little more original) got wind of the news that the Ravens had acquired the services of Anquan Boldin from Arizona, his stock instantly rose to the brink of fantasy starter status.  The Ravens are still a team that likes to control the clock with their running game and work off of their defensive capabilities, so don’t go overboard and throw him in with the Manning/Brees/Rodgers crowd just yet, but he’s definitely worth taking as a prominent backup to a weak fantasy starter (such as Favre, Kolb, Eli or McNabb) this year, and could end up higher in the rankings by season’s end than his past dictates.


~ The addition of both Anquan Boldin and Donte Stallworth give Flacco weapons he’s never had in the past


~ The Ravens Strength of Schedule against the pass is the toughest in the league


~ Ray Rice is an asset that the Ravens will not simply ignore


~ Despite Flacco’s strong arm, his accuracy is still in question

Contract

Flacco signed a rookie deal in July of '08 worth $11.9 million, of which $8.75 million was guaranteed, along with an additional $17.9 million available through performance incentives.  When considering Flacco in your draft, the contract situation could end up being a huge motivator.  He improved on his stellar rookie numbers in 2009, and with Boldin in the mix now, he could do so again in 2010:


2010 - $710,000


2011 - $1.035 million


2012 - $1.36 million


2013 - Free Agent

Injury Report

Green

Jersey Joe hasn't missed an NFL start yet

62 throwing attempts

Joe Flacco had a field day throwing the ball as he tossed it 62 times, completing 35 for 345 yards and a touchdown. He started to develop a high total of attempts when Bernard Pierce couldn't get it going and they fell behind 15-0.

Pyro's take: Two things, this is not what the Ravens wanted in Joe Flacco. They would rather run the ball, so don't get overly excited here. Second, Justin Forsett came onto the field, and looked good against a tough Cincinnati defense. Joe Flacco will continue to be a modest passing quarterback who is more of a field general than a weapon.“We definitely have to get the run game going early,” said Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith.

Look for a more balance attack come Thursday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Flacco Athletic?

According to offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak, Joe Flacco is surprisingly athletic. “I had no idea how good an athlete he is. He’s a very good athlete,” Kubiak said.

Pyro's take: The most surprising thing about Flacco is his ability to move around the pocket. At 6'6 he has the looks of a classic drop-back passer, and has the cannon to prove it, but his mobility in the pocket has not been relied on. With Gary Kubiak it is essential. The zone-scheme, boot-legs, and especially the play-action passing, are going to be used, and this is where Joe Flacco has had success. Last season Flacco had a 90.7 success rate when running the play-action and 70.3 percent when not. Kubiak went on to say that “The things we like to do moving around, the zone-pass schemes that we like to run, I think fit to a lot of his strengths,” Kubiak said. “We just need to continue to get better with them.”

The most touchdowns Flacco has ever thrown in the NFL was 25, that occurred in 2010. Last year, he fell flat, and only threw 19, his lowest since the 14 he threw his rookie year. He has been a winner for the Ravens, and that is why he got paid the huge salary. Which leads me to think can Gary Kubiak get Joe Flacco to the 30 touchdown mark, and make him a viable fantasy quarterback? If he can, then he will make one hell of a steal come draft day.

Ravens sign Donte Stallworth to one-year contract

The Baltimore Ravens announced on Wednesday that they have signed wide receiver Donte Stallworth to a one-year, $900,000 contract that includes $300,000 in incentives.

Pyro's take: Not to be too harsh on the Ravens front office or anything, but what the hell are you thinking? Throwing around a million bucks at a guy who was more of a detriment to former teams than an asset, isn't really the best way to go about improving a major position of need.
However, this won't be the last move they make to upgrade their receiving corps, so Balty fans can at least take that to bed with them until the draft in late April.

Flacco active and ready to take on the Broncos

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco (ankle) has been declared active for the game against the Broncos today.

Pyro's take: Flacco has been practicing all week after tweaking his ankle two weeks ago against the Vikings. It's a tough match-up for him going against the Broncos, so if you have another option, you might want to think about going with that in your fantasy football lineup today.

Flacco probable after full practice Friday

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco (ankle) went through a full practice on Friday and is being listed as probable on the team's injury report for this weekend.

Pyro's take: Flacco is just fine and has become a starter for fantasy football leagues this year. However, he has a tough match-up against the Broncos on Sunday, so if you have a better or equal option on your bench, you might want to think about starting him instead.

Flacco a full participant in practice this week

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco (ankle) has been a full participant in practice both Wednesday and Thursday this week.

Pyro's take: Looks like the bye week did Flacco's tweaked ankle some good. Denver has a great defense this year, but Flacco has been on fire, so go ahead and get him in your fantasy football lineup this weekend.

Flacco seems fine to coach Harbaugh

When asked about Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco (ankle) and his mobility, Harbaugh said: "I don't know. He looked all right. He's fine. You guys will see him in practice on Wednesday. He's Joe."

Pyro's take: There was never really that big a concern over the injury, so continue to start one of the bigger surprises of the year on your fantasy football team.

Flacco fine, could play today if he had to

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco (ankle) won't practice over the bye week due to soreness in his ankle, but will resume normal activity on Monday. "I could play today if we had to," Flacco said Wednesday. "It's no big deal."

Pyro's take: Flacco's ankle will be fine, so no worries there. The big question is if Joey can keep up the fantasy football QB1 type stats he's putting up for the rest of the year. We're betting he can. He's just one of those guys that has "it", whatever that "it" is.

Flacco taking bye week off to rest ankle

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco (ankle) has decided to take the team's bye week off to rest his swollen ankle.

Pyro's take: Flacco had his foot stepped on a couple times in last week's game against the Vikings, but he should be okay to face the Broncos in Week 8. Flacco has (surprisingly) become a fantasy football starting QB this year, so check back with us on his progress.

Flacco's ankle is just fine

After getting stepped on a few times during the game Sunday, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco said that his ankle was sore on Monday, but that the injury itself is nothing serious.

Pyro's take: Flacco has grown up in a hurry as he is among the top-10 in the league in most QB categories. However, he has a bye this coming week, and probably shouldn't be started on your fantasy football team against a tough Denver secondary in Week 8.

Flacco gets second starting receiver back

Baltimore Ravens WR Mark Clayton returned to practice on Wednesday for the first time since injuring his hamstring on August 2nd. The return was a welcome surprise to the team as Clayton wasn't expected back with the team for at least another week.

Pyro's take: The Ravens receiving corps could use all the help it can get, so having their starting receiver opposite Derrick Mason come back this early from a torn hamstring is great news. QB Joe Flacco stands to be the fantasy player who benefits most from Clayton's return, but it still doesn't bump him up to viable backup status.

Flacco poised in Monday Night game

Though Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco didn't throw for a TD on Monday night, he did complete a 43-yard pass in leading the team down the field to set up a Ray Rice three-yard touchdown run. Flacco also didn't throw an interception against the talented New York Jets defense.

Pyro's take: Flacco is still having trouble with his accuracy as he completed only 8-of-18 passes during the game, but the QB continues to be working on it in practice. He won't do a tremendous amount for you fantasy-wise as the Ravens continue to be a run-oriented offense in 2009, but he does have enough upside to emerge as a fringe backup QB this season. Draft him in the late rounds and hope for the best.

Ravens' QB Flacco struggling in training camp

According to Baltimore Ravens beat writer Jamison Henry, QB Joe Flacco has thrown "a high number of interceptions" and Henry said media and fans "haven't been impressed with [his] progress at training camp."

Pyro's take: Ravens' OC Cam Cameron said he wasn't concerned, as he wants his QBs to throw INTs in training camp to test their limits, but then later he said, "in the preseason, I want to throw completions." We think he's just confused because his first and last name are the same. As far as Flacco goes, the Ravens are always going to be a pound-the-rock possession offensive team with a stellar defense.

Joe Flacco disappointing early on

The Baltimore Ravens second-year QB struggled throughout the first few days of training camp, throwing 5-6 interceptions according to beat reporter Mike Preston. Preston said Flacco "has made some poor decisions while trying to force passes into tight situations."

Pyro's take: We don't expect Flacco to be anywhere close to a great quarterback, but this is discouraging news. However, coach John Harbaugh said the reason for his mistakes is that "at this point we’re throwing a lot of stuff at him." Flacco should improve on last year, but not by much.
