Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh confirmed that his team will open up the passing attack and use more no-huddle plays, saying it's "going to be a big part of what we do". The change was mostly encouraged by QB Joe Flacco, who's been clamoring for a more aerial attack for some time. "I really think that in order to win the whole thing in this league, you've got to have a high-powered offense...Maurice Jones-Drew led the league in rushing last year, who cares? [Jacksonville] didn't win any games."
Analysis: Give Flacco credit for knowing which way the wind blows - it's a passing league, top flight passing wins you games, and Ray Rice isn't made of steel. Now is he actually talented enough to make that leap forward? Flacco has always been firmly middle-of-the-road in fantasy value - not bad enough to cost your team, but never really good enough to put your team over the top. For now, take a wait-and-see approach and put him behind a more consistent QB1.
