Summary

Joe Flacco gets a fresh start with the Broncos. He's going to run an offense in 2019 that is very similar to the offense that saw him put up career-best numbers in 2014. New Broncos OC Rich Scangarello is a Gary Kubiak disciple, and it was Kubiak who ran the offense in 2014 when Flacco seemed the most comfortable. Flacco still has a big arm, but he's been banged up over the last two seasons. In 2017, he fought a back injury all season long and wasn't quite himself. In 2018, Flacco only played in nine games as a hip injury knocked him out for some time allowing Lamar Jackson to take over. The Broncos are hoping that Flacco can stay healthy and be everything that Case Keenum was not in 2018. Their offense isn't going to fill the air with footballs, so projecting Flacco for around 20-25 touchdown passes seems fair. That makes him more of a low-end QB2 for Fantasy GMs in 2019. (May 6)
