Joe Flacco fantasy performances raises questions

Doug Pensinger

Joe Flacco scuffled at times, throwing two interceptions, but he still finished with 362 passing yards and two touchdowns. We break down the fantasy football implications.

The Baltimore Ravens scuffled in their 49-27 loss to the Denver Broncos, and it raised questions about their offensive potential with Anquan Boldin and Dennis Pitta out of the picture. Joe Flacco finished the game with 362 passing yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions, on 62 attempts.

The net result was actually a decent fantasy football performance, but the 62 pass attempts and 55 percent completion percentage does not exactly inspire confidence.

Fantasy Impact: The Ravens offense did not look good on Thursday. Even when taking a 17-14 halftime lead, the offense did not look remotely consistent, and Flacco was at the center of it. If you are relying on Flacco as your fantasy football quarterback, you might not want to spend that prize money quite yet. That being said, the team was willing to give him plenty of opportunities to throw them back into this. His numbers weren't pretty, but he somehow managed a respectable fantasy showing. While not a particularly good fantasy starter, he could prove to be an interesting bye week fill-in depending on the matchups.
