Joe Flacco went 12-for-15 passing for 183 yards and a touchdown during the first half of Monday night's game between the Ravens and the Bengals. We break down the fantasy implications.

Joe Flacco had a big first half during Monday night's game between the Baltimore Ravens and the Cincinnati Bengals. Through 30 minutes, he is 12-for-15 passing, for 183 yards and one touchdown. The Ravens' no-huddle offense has racked up 225 total yards and 17 points so far against what was a stout Bengals defense last season.

Analysis: Flacco has been tabbed as a sleeper fantasy quarterback ever since his rookie season. In the early going of the Ravens' season opener, it seems like he is on his way to finally fulfilling his tremendous potential. It's dangerous to extrapolate too much from one half of football, but Flacco owners are right to feel cautiously optimistic about the quarterback's prospects this season.
