2015 Outlook: Quality Backup

Last updated on Jun-05-2015 by Shawn Childs

Flacco has the identical career record (72-40) as head coach John Harbaugh. Even with six playoff seasons in seven years in the league, Joe has never been a fantasy-relevant QB. Over the last six years, his low to high in passing yards has a gap of 373 yards with no seasons with more than 4,000 yards on his resume. Last year Flacco had growth in his completion rate (62.1) after falling in this area over the previous three seasons. His success led to a career high in passing yards (3,986) and passing TDs (27). In six of his seven seasons, Joe has thrown 12 INTs or less with his only outlier being 2013 (22). Over his first six seasons in the league, Flacco was sacked 222 times (40-plus per year). His improvement last year was due a huge step up in this area (19 sacks). His full offensive is returning, but he will be working with a new offensive coordinator. A big part of his success in 2014 was helped by the surprising running by RB Justin Forsett. His receiving core is in transition with his best deep threat no longer on the roster and his best option being old man WR Steve Smith (36). The Ravens added upside talent at WR and TE in the draft, but it will take for this core time to develop. The Ravens will run the ball a ton while playing solid defense. There is no need for Flacco to open up the offense other than a game or two when the game score gets out of line. Joe will be serviceable as a backup fantasy QB with limited upside in passing yards and passing TDs. Last year Flacco has five games with 300 yards or more and only two games with two TDs or more.
