Joe Flacco injury update: QB questionable for Ravens, fantasy owners [Update]

It looks like Baltimore will have Joe Flacco after a minor scare this week with his shoulder issue.

Editor’s update: Flacco is expected to start in spite of shoulder soreness, per Ian Rapoport.

The Baltimore Ravens are listing Joe Flacco as questionable to face the New York Jets. He is dealing with a shoulder injury that is more soreness, so expect him to suit up in Week 7.

Flacco missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but was able to go Friday. The expectation is that he plays Sunday, though he is not someone you want in any fantasy league that doesn't use two quarterbacks.

In six games this season, Flacco has thrown for just 1,589 yards and five touchdowns with two rushing scores over and against four interceptions and 13 sacks taken. He has thrown just two touchdowns over the past four games.

Fantasy Impact: Yahoo! ranks Flacco as the 20th-best quarterback this week. He does have a favorable matchup against a Jets defense allowing the sixth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season.

Still, Flacco has done nothing this season to warrant starting him in anything outside of deeper fantasy leagues and two-quarterback leagues. Keep him on the bench this week.
