From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 14): The Broncos season is alive, but Flacco's fantasy stock is losing its lifeforce. The team will want to go run heavy again this week vs. the Chiefs, so no matter how good the matchup looks on paper, he's just a desperation play and low ceiling QB2/Superflex.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 6 vs TEN (18 / 28 / 177 / 0 / 1 pass, 4 / -1 / 0 rush)

Flacco plinked his way to 177 yards and an interception on a day that did not ask very much of the offense. The defense pitched a shutout, and the offense capitalized on a third quarter interception of Marcus Mariota, turning the good field position into a short Phillip Lindsay touchdown run. Flacco also led scoring drives that ended with field goals in the 1st, 3rd, and 4th quarter. Flacco lost receiver Emmanuel Sanders for the second half of the game, focusing his passing on Courtland Sutton and Royce Freeman. Flacco made a sort of boneheaded decision to errantly flip an incompletion in the general direction of Emmanuel Sanders while scrambling for a first down that he could have easily picked up with his feet at the end of the 1st half. His interception was a decent ball on a back shoulder fade to rookie TE Fant, but Fant appeared to lose the ball in the sun, and Titans safety Kevin Byard did not. Flacco's managed one highlight reel completion, a beautiful connection with Courtland Sutton on a deep ball down the left side that picked up 41 yards in the 2nd quarter.

2019 Week 5 vs LAC (14 / 20 / 182 / 1 / 1 pass, 3 / 7 / 0 rush)

The Broncos were fortunate to jump out to an early lead, so Flacco wasn't asked to do too much in this one as they attempted to grind clock with the run game. Flacco hit Sutton for a touchdown that was mostly Sutton, as the receiver broke a couple of tackles after hauling in an out route and took the ball 70 yards to the house in the first quarter. After that, Denver dialed back the passing game and focused on Lindsay and Freeman. Flacco was still guilty of holding the ball too long and taking costly sacks. He lost a fumble early in the 2nd quarter on a strip sack. He was intercepted on a pass that was batted down at the line of scrimmage inside Denver's red zone, giving the Chargers the ball in easy scoring position. Denver's defense bailed him out with an interception of Phillip Rivers in the end zone.

2019 Week 4 vs JAX (22 / 38 / 303 / 3 / 1 pass, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)

Flacco looked better than he has in past weeks, spreading the ball around and finding the end zone three times. Though he didn't take any official sacks, Flacco still doesn't look very good in the face of pressure, as he can rarely do anything to extend a play before having to throw it away. He capped the Broncos second drive of the day with a touchdown to Noah Fant on a well executed tight end screen. Fant did all the work as he caught the ball behind the line of scrimmage, broke a couple of tackles and showed some impressive speed on his way to a 25 yard score. Flacco's second touchdown was a well-placed ball on a slant route to Courtland Sutton in the end zone. Flacco killed a drive at the end of the first half with a terrible pass that floated well over Emmanuel Sanders on a short crossing route, landing right in a defender's hands with under two minutes left in the half. Flacco led a scoring drive at the end of the 4th quarter, connecting with Sanders and Sutton for big gains before finding Sutton in the end zone with a well placed throw on a skinny post.

2019 Week 3 vs GB (20 / 29 / 213 / 0 / 1 pass, 2 / 5 / 0 rush)

Persistent rain and a persistent pass rush from Green Bay kept Flacco from pushing the ball downfield much, and he turned in a scoreless performance as Denver lost their third straight. The Packers defense was all over Flacco as they sacked him six times for a loss of 52 yards. Flacco nearly found Sanders in the back of the end zone in the 2nd quarter, but a defender batted the well-placed ball away at the last moment. Flacco and Courtland Sutton also nearly hooked up in the end zone in the 3rd quarter, but the receiver couldn't come down in bounds near the front pylon. Flacco's biggest gain of the day was a 52 yard reception by Courtland Sutton on a dime pass down the right sideline. Flacco was intercepted by Darnell Savage on a terrible 3rd quarter throw. He also lost a brutal fumble near his own 5 yard line late in the 2nd quarter, setting Green Bay up for an easy touchdown with two minutes let in the first half.

2019 Week 2 vs CHI (35 / 50 / 292 / 1 / 1 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Flacco and the offense both got of to a slow start in the first half, but picked it up after halftime with the Broncos trailing. Flacco was particularly effective with Emmanuel Sanders, who he targeted a team-high 13 times. Flacco was nearly intercepted in the 2nd quarter on a deep slant that was undercut by Bears safety Eddie Jackson. Flacco's longest completion was a 24 yard gain to Noah Fant in the 3rd quarter. With Denver down by 7 points late in the 4th, Flacco overthrew a short pass to Sanders in the end zone that was intercepted by Will Fuller. Flacco bounced back with a clutch game-tying drive however, as Denver got the ball back with just a few minutes left in the 4th. Down by 7 points with the offense at midfield, he found Courtland Sutton up the seam to convert 4th and 10. Flacco and Sutton converted 4th down AGAIN later in the same drive with a slant route on 4th and 3. Flacco capped the drive with a game-tying touchdown to Emmanuel Sanders on a perfectly placed ball in the back right corner of the end zone. Flacco and the offense took the lead with a 2-point conversion to Emmanuel Sanders on a short out route. Sadly their efforts were in vain as a last second Chicago field goal gave the Bears the win.

2019 Week 1 vs OAK (21 / 31 / 268 / 1 / 0 pass, 1 / 1 / 0 rush)

It was a slow debut for Flacco, who took several sacks(two that killed drives on third down in the Oakland red zone) and didn't find the end zone until late in the 4th quarter. He did show good chemistry with Courtland Sutton on deep throws, and managed to get things going with Sanders late in the game as well. Flacco hit Deasean Hamilton right in the hands for what should have been a touchdown at the end of the 3rd quarter, but the receiver let the pass fall to the turf and Denver had to settle for a field goal. Flacco found Emmanuel Sanders on a deep bomb right down the middle of the field in the 4th quarter, his longest gain of the day at 53 yards. Flacco and Sanders hooked up again on a short back shoulder out route for Denver's only touchdown of the day at the end of the 4th quarter. The defense had a chance to hold the Raiders up by 8 with 2:15 left and three timeouts, but they couldn't get a stop to give the offense another chance.
