2017 Outlook: Joe Flacco

Is Joe Flacco Fantasy Football Elite? No. Not even close. Not even after throwing for a career-best 4,317 yards last season (and that was coming off of a torn ACL). We've learned that Flacco is a good, strong-armed quarterback who just isn't as consistent as the majority of his peers. Knowing that, it's dang near impossible to recommend him for Fantasy with his offensive line losing multiple starters this offseason and his receiving corps losing top wideout Steve Smith to retirement. A late July back injury only makes his outlook even gloomier. Expect Flacco to be one of the most unpopular passers in Fantasy this fall -- until the bye weeks kick in. That's when he'll get picked up and used as a one-week option. He's only worth a pick around the halfway point in two-quarterback format drafts.
