Summary

For the first time ever, Flacco is coming off an injury (the six games he missed in 2016 were the first of his career). His rehab from a Week 11 ACL tear is on schedule for a potential return during training camp, though it's very possible he is treated with kid gloves as way to ensure his full recovery. In a rare poor season for Baltimore (the team was 1-7 even before the game they won in which Flacco was injured), Flacco's statistics were on pace to be among his best ever. That could have been partly due to the team's leaky defense driving the need for more passing volume due to game flow. But Flacco also seemed to gain a grasp of Marc Trestman's offensive scheme. With Trestman still in the fold and a running back group led by an aging Justin Forsett with young players behind him, Flacco will be expected to lead the offense once again. His team has re-tooled its receiving corps with players that match Flacco's skills as an excellent deep ball passer. Mike Wallace was acquired, and 2015 first-round pick Breshad Perriman should be back this season after missing all of last year with injury. Steve Smith also returns from injury to work the intermediate areas of the field, and Benjamin Watson was a surprise free agency acquisition who will become the starting tight end. Based on their personnel, Baltimore should be a team whose passing game guides the offense. (May 17)

Ravens | Joe Flacco has mental hurdle (Tue Jun 21, 02:10 PM) - Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (knee) doesn't have a problem with running or cutting or doing anything physically in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Flacco's main test is facing the thoughts of getting hit again. 'I don't expect to have those kinds of thoughts linger in my head,' Flacco said. 'But you never know until you get out there and do it again.' Flacco is expected to be ready to go for training camp.

Our View: We'll all be watching to see how Flacco responds under pressure...and especially after he gets hit. He's cool under fire, and Flacco only has to overcome the mental part of his recovery. When he takes a hit and the knee feels okay, Flacco will be the QB he's used to being. Fantasy owners should consider him a low-end QB2. His current ADP is QB25 (14.08) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Ravens | Joe Flacco to work out with teammates (Fri Jun 17, 07:02 PM) - Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco said he plans to work out with some of his teammates over the next month to make sure his arm is strong enough for the work he will receive during training camp. He said he is not worried about his injured knee.

Our View: There's a chance that Flacco is ready for the start of training camp provided he doesn't suffer any setbacks. The team should limit him in the preseason even if he is practicing in August. The plan is for Flacco to be ready and as near full strength as possible for Week 1 of the regular season.

Ravens | Joe Flacco feels good (Thu Jun 16, 01:57 PM) - Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (knee) doesn't have any tentativeness while running and cutting during practices. However, getting hit in the pocket will be an adjustment, since that's how he suffered the injury. Flacco said he feels good enough to play now if he had to.

Our View: We're not worried about Flacco, but we also don't love him as a fantasy starter. He's a low-end QB2 or a high-end QB1, though if the offense clicks he could produce better numbers. You just can't be confident about it.
