Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith has been the intended target for five of QB Joe Flacco's seven interceptions this season, which is tied for the most interceptions when targeting a receiver. Smith has also caught only 46.2 percent of the passes thrown to him this season.
Fantasy Tip: Smith scored three touchdowns in the previous two games but did not catch any passes in Week 8. Smith has had a bit of an up and down season but will look to improve his connection with Flacco. Smith probably is a No. 2 or No. 3 wide receiver most weeks.

Baltimore Ravens TE Owen Daniels was targeted by QB Joe Flacco nine times Sunday, Oct. 19, and caught six balls for 58 yards and a touchdown in Week 7. Daniels is second on the team with 27 catches, 275 yards and three touchdowns. "He makes catches in traffic," Flacco said. "He obviously has held onto the ball a lot of times while getting hit by two guys, even one in the end zone. So, yes, I have a lot of confidence throwing to him."
Fantasy Tip: Daniels' Week 7 performance shed some light on his dimming fantasy stock. He hadn't done much since his surprising two-touchdown performance in Week 2. Daniels solidified himself as a mid-to-low TE1 on FantasyScore.

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco became the fastest quarterback since the NFL-AFL merger to throw five touchdowns in a game in Week 6 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Flacco's fifth touchdown pass came just 16 minutes into the game. His five touchdown passes matched the most by a Ravens quarterback in their history, and it marked a personal high.
Fantasy Tip: We recommended Flacco for your FantasyScore lineups against the Bucs, and he delivered. Flacco won't match his performance next week against the Atlanta Falcons at home, but he won't be a bad option again.
Sun, 12 Oct 2014 10:34:13 -0700
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco has thrown four touchdowns in the first quarter of the team's Week 6 game.
Fantasy Tip: Flacco has been pretty solid so far this season but has put up four quick scores in Week 6. Flacco probably is not a weekly starting option for owners but could be a matchup play depending on his opponent.

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 13:16:10 -0700
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (illness) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 18.

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (illness) said he had a stomach bug Wednesday, Sept. 17. He's fine and ready to go for Week 3 against the Cleveland Browns.
Fantasy Tip: Flacco will play against the Browns in Week 3. Flacco is cheap at FantasyScore ($5,200), but you can find better options, especially since he's going up against a much-improved defense.
Thu, 18 Sep 2014 08:39:30 -0700
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (illness) is back at practice Thursday, Sept. 18.

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 12:25:04 -0700
Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (illness) did not participate in practice Wednesday Sept. 17, as he is dealing with a cold.

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 16:27:17 -0700
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco expects the team to operate at a high level despite learning a new offense. Flacco said the team needs to quickly correct the mistakes they make and keep them from occurring again.
Fantasy Tip: It's ironic that Flacco expects mistakes to be corrected, considering he threw a career-high 22 interceptions last season. Those mistakes are the main reason why Flacco is an unreliable fantasy quarterback and should only be drafted as a backup.
Tue, 22 Jul 2014 13:12:00 -0700
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco said he's become more comfortable in offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak's offense.
Fantasy Tip: This is promising news heading into training camp, but Flacco has proven that he's not a reliable fantasy quarterback. He's solidly in low-end QB2 territory.
Wed, 25 Jun 2014 10:25:41 -0700
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco said the new offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak's playbook is not very difficult to learn, noting the main change from last year's system is the terminology is "completely different." Flacco said the offense is playing faster because of a more streamlined playbook, which allows players to "do what they're good at" because of having fewer things to consider.
Fantasy Tip: This offense could lead to more fantasy production, but the unsettle running game and questionable offensive line are chief concerns. Flacco is a backup option best suited for favorable matchup consideration.
Fri, 20 Jun 2014 17:14:06 -0700
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco has looked to be a good fit in offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak's system based on his performance during offseason workouts.

Thu, 30 Jan 2014 06:23:35 -0800
Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak uses a lot of play-action passes, particularly off of bootleg plays, in his offense. The offense is built around a zone-blocking scheme where the offensive line and running back will execute a hard play-fake to one side, while QB Joe Flacco will have to bootleg to the backside of the play unprotected. Flacco's mobility has been questioned in the media, and many wonder whether he can run bootlegs.
Wed, 29 Jan 2014 13:46:34 -0800
Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak said he is unsure of if he will call plays from the booth or field, and it may come down to QB Joe Flacco's comfort.

Tue, 28 Jan 2014 11:30:02 -0800

"He's a championship quarterback, and that's all you can ask for as a coach in this league. I'm very excited, along with Rick, to work with him."

Flacco was lined up out wide for a few plays during the team's Week 12 win over the New York Jets. "I don't like that stuff. I think it makes you look like a high school offense. That's my opinion," Flacco said. He doesn't expect the team to use the wildcat for the rest of the year.

"When you watch the tape, there are a lot of really good blocks going on there." Harbaugh also suggested that Flacco needs to do a better job of getting rid of the ball sooner.
Tue, 22 Oct 2013 09:41:55 -0700
The Baltimore Ravens changed up their offensive scheme, with QB Joe Flacco running more plays from the shotgun and spread formations in Week 7.

These moves opened up the running game, and the team was able to establish the run with more success. RB Ray Rice had 15 carries for 45 yards and RB Bernard Pierce had six carries for 13 yards. The Ravens averaged 3.2 yards per carry.
Sun, 29 Sep 2013 17:45:11 -0700

Baltimore Ravens QB Dayne Crist was brought back as a camp arm only because QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion) was being evaluated for concussion this past week after getting hurt in the last preseason game against the Carolina Panthers.

Fri, 23 Aug 2013 12:17:21 -0700
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco has been developing a solid chemistry with WR Brandon Stokley, who caught three passes for 43 yards in the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 22. "You can't really be a good receiver without having a very good quarterback. To have an elite quarterback like Joe, it makes my job easier. We've just been working hard the last week and a half trying to get our timing down," Stokley said.
Fantasy Tip: It appears like Stokley is on his way to making the final roster and having a solid role in the offense this season. Stokley is probably not a target for owners in their drafts but could be a waiver wire option at some point during the season.

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco praised the team's new look defense, and believes they can be dominant in 2013. "I tell you what, our defense looks really good," Flacco said.

I think we have a pretty special group and I think it's going to be exciting to watch those guys go after it this year."
Wed, 07 Aug 2013 09:02:34 -0700
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco is confident the team will overcome the offseason departure of WR Anquan Boldin, and loss of TE Dennis Pitta (hip) to injury. WR Jacoby Jones is expected to see plenty of opportunity on the outside with WR Torrey Smith, and Flacco mentioned WRs Tandon Doss and Deonte Thompson as candidates who could step up on the inside. "I think the one thing that Deonte gives you that you normally don't have in the middle is that speed," Flacco said. "Normally, those guys are on the outside. He gives you that speed in there. Tandon is that real strong-handed guy that can go up and make some catches for you. He's got a good feel for how to run the routes in there."
Mon, 01 Jul 2013 16:53:46 -0700
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco got praise for his mechanics from former offensive coordinator Cam Cameron. "Joe was very well schooled on how to throw the football. He came in with great mechanics. He came in with natural arm strength and endurance," Cameron said. "But I would say to give the credit to Joe himself. Joe knows what he is doing when it comes to his arm. I've never seen him ice his arm. I never saw it sore. I've seen him tired maybe once."
