Flacco completed 27 of 39 passes for 186 yards and a TD in Sunday's 24-16 loss to the Vikings. Flacco's day also included three fumbles (none lost) and he was sacked a season-high five times by the Vikings defense. He'll look to bounce back from consecutive losses in short order on Thursday when the Ravens take on the Dolphins at home. The quick turnaround is less than optimal, however, with the team's top three wideouts -- Mike Wallace (concussion), Jeremy Maclin (shoulder) and Breshad Perriman (concussion) -- all banged up.
Flacco completed 24 of 41 passes for 180 yards and two interceptions without a touchdown while adding a two-point conversion and a two-yard rush in Sunday's 27-24 overtime loss to the Bears. Flacco threw for 67 more yards than opposing quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, but that's not saying much given the veteran's embarrassing 4.4 yards per attempt. Baltimore's two touchdowns in this one came on a kickoff return and a punt return as Flacco failed to lead the offense to paydirt while throwing a pick-six among his two interceptions. Flacco's touchdown-to-interception ratio now sits at an awful 4:8 to go with an average of just 167 passing yards per game. Surely you can find a better quarterback option on waivers.
Flacco completed 19 of 26 passes for 222 yards in Sunday's 30-17 win over the Raiders. Flacco connected with Mike Wallace for gains of 54, 52 and 27, accounting for 59 percent of the quarterback's yardage. While his performance didn't do anything to help fantasy owners, Flacco had his best game of the season from the Ravens' perspective, even managing not to throw a pick for the first time since Week 11 last season. Sunday's mark of 8.5 yards per pass attempt was his best in any game since Week 8 in 2015. Encouraging as that may be for the Baltimore offense, it also illustrates that Flacco is among the least attractive fantasy options at quarterback. Expectations should remain modest, even in a favorable Week 6 home matchup against the Bears.
Flacco went 31-for-49 for 235 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in Sunday's 26-9 loss to the Steelers. Baltimore opened up the pass game a bit more Sunday, but Flacco still struggled to find much success as he averaged under 5.0 yards per attempt and turned in his second consecutive two-interception outing. Dating back to last season, Flacco has now thrown a pick in 10 straight games. The Ravens been inconsistent with their game plans to this point, as Flacco has logged outings with 17, 34, 18, and 49 pass attempts, leading to volatile production. Flacco and the Ravens will hit the road in Week 5 for a matchup in Oakland against the Raiders.
Flacco completed eight of 18 passes for 28 yards and tossed two interceptions in Sunday's 44-7 loss to the Jaguars in London. A game manager the first two weeks of the season, Flacco found himself in a drastically different position Sunday and yet still ended up with fewer than 20 pass attempts. Playing behind a patchwork offensive line, he repeatedly settled for check downs and struggled to even complete those. The Ravens didn't pick up a first down until the final five minutes of the first half, and they only scored in garbage time after Ryan Mallett had taken over. Limited both by his own shortcomings and those of his supporting cast, Flacco offers little in the way of upside as the Ravens prepare for a Week 4 home game against the Steelers.
