Joe Flacco helped pave the way to victory for the Ravens in Week 3. We break down the fantasy implications.

The new and improved Baltimore Ravens offense continues to pay dividends for Joe Flacco's fantasy value. He finished Sunday night's game against the New England Patriots with 382 passing yards and three touchdowns, racking up a quarterback rating of 117.7.

Fantasy Impact: This was more of the same Flacco we saw in the preseason and Week 1. The fifth-year quarterback is handling his offense well this year, making of the most of his offensive weapons in the passing game. Last week he didn't come out with the same aggression as tonight, and it's unclear if the coaching staff is still trying to figure out what exactly the game plan should be each week. However, as long as they let Flacco continue to air it out, fantasy owners will continue to be pleased.
