Joe Flacco puts up elite fantasy football performance in first half

Joe Flacco has led the Baltimore Ravens to a monster first half against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. We break down the fantasy impact.

The Baltimore Ravens are destroying the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 6, and Joe Flacco owners are benefiting in a big way. Through one half of play, Flacco has thrown for 245 yards and five touchdowns. He threw four of the touchdowns in the first quarter, including two to Torrey Smith. He added one more in the second quarter, connecting with Steve Smith on a 56-yard touchdown.

Fantasy impact: Flacco has generally been a solid QB2 option, with tremendous upside, but also some modest downside. Over the last month, he has been all over the place. According to Yahoo! standard leagues, Flacco scored 12.28 points in Week 3, 25.38 points in Week 4, 8.40 in Week 5, and already has 29.8 points through the first half in Week 6. He can break out with a monster game, but it is entirely unpredictable. If you missed at quarterback in your draft, Flacco is a decent option who will win you some weeks, and won't exactly kill you.
