Joe Flacco went 21-for-29 passing for 299 yards and two touchdowns as the Ravens trounced the Bengals on Monday Night Football. We break down the fantasy implications.

Joe Flacco went 21-for-29 passing for 299 yards and two touchdowns as the Baltimore Ravens trounced the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday Night Football. Flacco was pulled from the game midway through the fourth quarter with the Ravens leading, 41-13. He found Anquan Boldin and Dennis Pitta for touchdowns.

Analysis: Flacco was stellar on the night, finally looking like the potential fantasy football star that experts have predicted he could become since his rookie year. He finally has a full complement of mature weapons around him, and the no-huddle offense seems to be doing him a lot of good. Though fantasy owners are rightfully happy, the standard caveats apply. This was just one game, and Flacco has been known to following up great performances with mediocre outings. Still, so far so good for the fifth-year quarterback.
