Eagles' Joe Flacco: Finds new home in Philly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles and Flacco agreed to a contract Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Flacco retains his journeyman status backing up a young quarterback. In stints with the Broncos and Jets following his 11-year tenure with the Ravens, he completed 61.9 percent of his passes for 2,686 yards, 12 touchdowns and eight interceptions in 13 games (12 starts). Flacco will serve as the primary backup to second-year signal-caller Jalen Hurts in Philadelphia.

Jets' Joe Flacco: Six TDs in four starts overall
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flacco finishes the 2020 season with 864 yards, six touchdowns and three interceptions.

Flacco compiled those numbers over five appearances (four starts) while going winless for a Jets team that finished 2-14. He'll likely land a role as a veteran backup somewhere next season on a contract similar to the one-year pact he signed with New York in 2020.

Jets' Joe Flacco: Returns to backup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flacco will revert to a backup role with Sam Darnold (shoulder) cleared to play Sunday against the Dolphins, Rich Cimini of reports.

Flacco didn't exactly light it up with Darnold sidelined, completing 54.5 percent of his passes, averaging 212 yards per game and throwing six touchdowns versus three interceptions in four spot starts. Now relegated to reserve duty, Flacco likely will need another injury -- or aggravation of Darnold's right throwing shoulder -- before he'll get another chance under center.

Jets' Joe Flacco: Throws two TDs vs. Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flacco completed 15 of 30 pass attempts for two touchdowns and one interception during Sunday's 34-28 loss to the Chargers.

Flacco completed just half his passes and averaged a lackluster 6.8 yards per attempt while throwing a pick-six on his second drive. He turned things around in the second half, completing touchdown passes on his first two possessions, and he finished with a respectable fantasy line by his standards. Flacco, who has 467 yards and a 5:2 TD:INT over the last two games, could start again next Sunday against the Dolphins if Sam Darnold (shoulder) is unable to play, but he could find the going tough against a surprisingly stingy defensive unit.

Jets' Joe Flacco: Will start again Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flacco will start under center in this Sunday's game versus the Chargers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The Jets were hoping Sam Darnold (shoulder) would be ready following the Week 10 bye, but they're being cautious with his recovery and will keep him on the sidelines for another week. Flacco struggled a bit in his first two starts of the year before turning it around in the Week 9 loss to New England when he completed 72 percent of his passes for 262 yards, three touchdowns and an interception. His deep ball was quite good, too, and he showed a strong connection with both Breshad Perriman and Jamison Crowder. Flacco will look to keep that momentum rolling, but he draws a tough matchup, as the Chargers have held opposing quarterbacks to less than 200 passing yards in three of the last four games.

Jets' Joe Flacco: Throws three TDs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flacco completed 18 of 25 passes for 262 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Monday night's 30-27 loss to the Patriots.

Flacco enjoyed an excellent start to the game, beating the Patriots' secondary with a couple vintage deep balls. He first found Breshad Perriman with a 50-yard touchdown to begin the second quarter, then dropped in a beautiful 20-yarder to Jamison Crowder just before halftime. With another TD connection with Perriman in the third -- this time from 15 yards -- Flacco put the Jets in a strong position to seal their first win, but a fourth-quarter interception and other team miscues undid that effort. With New York now entering its bye week, it's unclear whether Flacco or Sam Darnold (shoulder) will be under center when the team returns to face the Chargers in Week 11.

Jets' Joe Flacco: Gets another start Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flacco will start Monday against the Patriots for the injured Sam Darnold (shoulder), who is inactive.

Darnold aggravated his right shoulder injury in the Jets' Week 8 loss at Kansas City, setting the stage for Flacco to see action for the fourth time this season. While his completion percentage is only 52.0 with 397 yards, one touchdown and one interception in three appearances, Flacco will have the Jets' top three wide receivers available (Jamison Crowder, Breshad Perriman and Denzel Mims) for the first time all year. Flacco will look to exploit a Patriots defense that has allowed an NFL-worst 8.6 yards per attempt this season.

Jets' Joe Flacco: Likely starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flacco is expected to start Monday against the Patriots after Sam Darnold re-injured his throwing shoulder, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Add yet another marker to a bizarre season for Jets quarterbacks. Darnold injured his shoulder in a Week 4 contest against the Broncos, missing two games only to return and post relatively mundane numbers in losses to the Bills and Chiefs, respectively. The 2018 first-round pick evidently re-injured his shoulder in the latest aforementioned loss, although both Darnold and coach Adam Gase seemed to suggest earlier in the week the injury wasn't particularly serious. The tune has certainly changed now with Flacco all but confirmed to start Monday against the Patriots. In his two starts earlier this season, Flacco completed just over 50 percent of his passes for 381 yards and one touchdown to go along with an interception. Reinforcements could be on the way for Flacco though, as it looks as if the Jets might have all three of their top pass catchers available with Breshad Perriman (concussion) and Jamison Crowder (groin) both trending in the right direction to start alongside Denzel Mims.

Jets' Joe Flacco: Likely returning to backup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jets head coach Adam Gase said Friday that he expects Sam Darnold (shoulder) to start Sunday against the Bills, likely relegating Flacco to backup duties, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

While Darnold was sidelined for the last two games with a sprained shoulder, Flacco oversaw an unproductive offense in blowout losses to the Cardinals and Dolphins, completing only 39 of 77 passes (50.6 percent) for one touchdown, one interception and just 4.9 yards per attempt. Though Darnold may still end up carrying a designation into the weekend after being a limited participant through the Jets' first two practices of the week, Gase noted the young signal-caller is "trending in the right direction" and should be ready to start "barring any setbacks." Darnold's presence should offer an improved outlook for New York's other pass-catching options compared to Flacco, but the winless Jets will still be heavy home underdogs against the division-leading Bills.

Jets' Joe Flacco: Shut down by Dolphins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flacco completed 21 of 44 passes for 186 yards with an interception in Sunday's 24-0 loss to the Dolphins.

The Jets got absolutely nothing going on offense in this one, and the closest they came to putting points on the board was when Sam Ficken missed a 55-yard field goal attempt late in the third quarter. Flacco has failed to throw for 200 yards in either of his starts this season, but with Sam Darnold (shoulder) not yet practicing, the veteran QB could find himself under center again in Week 7 against the Bills.

Jets' Joe Flacco: Will draw another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jets head coach Adam Gase said Flacco will start Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Rich Cimini of reports.

With Sam Darnold still dealing with pain in his throwing shoulder, the Jets plan to proceed cautiously with him, paving the way for Flacco to make his second consecutive start. The veteran signal-caller completed 18 of 33 passes for 195 yards and a touchdown in the Week 5 loss to the Cardinals, so it's hard to get fired up about his fantasy prospects this week while helming an 0-5 squad. The Jets have moved on from top running back Le'Veon Bell, but on the plus side, the team could add Breshad Perriman (ankle) back to the pass-catching mix this weekend.

Jets' Joe Flacco: Gets little help in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flacco completed 18 of 33 passes for 195 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-10 loss to the Cardinals. He added 20 rushing yards on four carries.

The veteran quarterback didn't play too badly in his first start as a Jet, but his offensive line didn't give him much time and his receivers dropped a number of catchable passes. Flacco could get another start in Week 6 against the Chargers with Sam Darnold (shoulder) lacking a clear timetable for his return, but the state of the roster around them makes it unlikely either QB will be able to put up solid numbers any time soon.

Jets' Joe Flacco: Set to start in Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jets head coach Adam Gase said Wednesday that Flacco will start at quarterback in Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Rich Cimini of reports.

According to Cimini, Sam Darnold (shoulder) won't be available Sunday and is being viewed as week-to-week, so Flacco could log more that one start while the Jets' top signal-caller recovers from an injury. Leading an 0-4 team with a banged-up wideout corps isn't an optimal context from a fantasy perspective, but Flacco is at least an experienced veteran option whose presence should allow the Jets to proceed cautiously with Darnold.

Jets' Joe Flacco: Throws two passes in Jets debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flacco completed both of his pass attempts for 16 yards in Thursday's 37-28 loss to the Broncos.

Flacco saw some brief game action in the first half with Sam Darnold in the locker room with what turned out to be a sprained shoulder. Darnold was cleared to return to the game, pushing Flacco back into a bench role. The 35-year-old quarterback's appearance settled any question about his readiness for game action following neck surgery, so it's safe to pencil Flacco in as Darnold's top backup moving forward.

Jets' Joe Flacco: Officially active Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flacco will serve as the Jets' backup quarterback Thursday versus the Broncos, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

As of Tuesday, Flacco wasn't sure if he'd be ready for the No. 2 gig behind Sam Darnold, but the coaching and medical staffs have come to the conclusion that he's officially recovered from surgery to repair a herniated disc in his neck. If he makes his way onto the field Thursday, it'll mark his first appearance since Oct. 27 of last season, when he was a member of the Broncos.

Jets' Joe Flacco: Not ready to seize backup duties
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flacco (neck) doesn't expect to be the backup quarterback Thursday against the Broncos and said he's relying on the medical staff to decide when he's ready for game action, Andy Vasquez of USA Today Sports reports.

It remains to be seen whether the Jets dress Flacco as an emergency third-stringer or leave him sidelined come game day, but it sounds like Mike White will back up Sam Darnold for a fourth consecutive game to open the season. Flacco is practicing in full for a second consecutive week, so it's unclear what more he needs to do to be deemed ready to see the field.

Jets' Joe Flacco: Absent from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flacco (neck) wasn't listed on Monday's injury report and is expected to suit up Thursday versus the Broncos, Rich Cimini of reports.

Flacco was expected to be ready for this past Sunday's loss to the Colts, but he was ultimately a scratch. Cleared of the injury again, Flacco will prepare to back up Sam Darnold in Thursday's game. Although Darnold is coming off a rough outing, his surroundings have been less than ideal, so Flacco likely won't play unless Darnold suffers an injury.

Jets' Joe Flacco: Won't play Sunday after all
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Contrary to previous reports, Flacco (neck) is still bothered by his injury and will be inactive Sunday against the Colts, Rich Cimini of reports.

Flacco practiced and looked healthy this week, but he's not ready to see game action yet. Mike White will back up Sam Darnold in Indianapolis while Flacco will set his sights on a possible Week 4 return Thursday against the Broncos.

Jets' Joe Flacco: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flacco (neck) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Colts, Ralph Vacchiano of reports.

The veteran quarterback has been practicing in full all week and should be good to go come Week 3. Flacco's not expected to see the field unless starting quarterback Sam Darnold is benched or hurt, though if coach Adam Gase has any two-quarterback personnel groupings in his playbook, this would be the week to use them; New York will have at most three wide receivers available due to a rash of injuries, and it could be as few as two if the questionable Braxton Berrios (hamstring) can't go.

Jets' Joe Flacco: Turns in first full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flacco (neck) practiced fully Wednesday and is expected to be available for Sunday's game against the Colts, Rich Cimini of reports.

Flacco had been eyeing a Week 3 return since before the season started, and the veteran quarterback's return to full practice suggests he'll meet that goal. He's slated to serve as Sam Darnold's backup as the struggling New York offense looks to spring an upset in Indianapolis this weekend.
