Flacco has been ho-hum from a fantasy perspective over the last 3 years. You want 3,600 and 20-25 TDs? Flacco’s your guy. Cam Cameron refused to take the training wheels off and Flacco hasn’t had the weapons to really take off. Now, the training wheels are off and Torrey Smith gives him a legit WR.
We saw the new look no huddle offense against the Jaguars as the Ravens will finally let Joe makes calls at the line and attack the defense. He looked great. He is now 43/66 for 433 yards with 3 TDs and an interception.
I have not been a fan of Joe Flacco over the years but I am warming up to him as a strong QB2. Time to move him past guys like Fitzpatrick, Freeman, and Big Ben in my mind. If you wait on a QB and are looking for a high upside QB2, it’s time to start taking Joe Flacco serious.
