Flacco completed 30-of-50 passes for 192 yards, with one touchdown and three interceptions during Sunday's loss to the Bengals.

Though he'll be wearing a knee brace during Sunday's game against the Bengals, Flacco is not listed on the Week 17 injury report, the Ravens' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Flacco previously said that he's wearing the knee brace just to play it safe, but his performance in Sunday's loss to the Patriots may indicate otherwise. The veteran quarterback misfired on a couple of simple throws, and he was even slower than usual when rolling out of the pocket. While he should regain some of the mobility for Week 17, there's no guarantee that Flacco will be at 100 percent against the stingy Cincinnati defense. A slight downgrade is in order, though Flacco's shaky knee probably doesn't matter enough to change most fantasy decisions.
Flacco will continue to wear a protective brace on his left knee for the second straight week when the Ravens take on the Bengals on Sunday, the team's official site reports. "Iím going to do it the same way," Flacco noted Tuesday. "I really just want to make sure I can be as safe as I can moving forward so nothing crazy happens. Iím pretty comfortable with it. Itís not ideal, but it is what it is and itís not that big of an issue."

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Despite visual evidence to the contrary, especially in terms of his mobility, Flacco asserted Tuesday that his knee issue was not a factor in his performance in Week 16's 41-7 loss to the Patriots. "The knee actually felt really good all game," he said. "It was just the way it played out." Moreover, Flacco -- who was on the practice field Tuesday -- indicated that the injury continues to improve. "It feels better," he said Tuesday. "It felt really good on game day Ė a little sore yesterday and today, but it feels a lot better."
Flacco (knee) passed for 260 yards with a pair of interceptions in Sunday's blowout loss to New England. He also rushed for a short touchdown in the fourth quarter.

2013

Subscribe now to see our 2013 outlook.

2012

Although Flacco claims to believe heís the best quarterback in the NFL, he more likely has maxed out as an average starter for the Ravens. He completed just 57.6 percent of his passes in 2011, with his average per attempt dropping from 7.4 in 2010 to 6.7. His 20 passing touchdowns were his lowest total since he threw 14 in his 2008 rookie year, and his quarterback rating (80.9) was barely better than the career-low 80.3 he posted in 2008. Itís true that Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith are an average duo at receiver, but an above average quarterback would find a way to make it work. Flacco will need to, in fact, because the only receivers the Ravens added in the offseason were sixth-round pick Tommy Streeter and Texans exile Jacoby Jones. Considering he was significantly better the two years prior to 2011, in any case, Flacco should improve in 2012.

2011

Heís limited by the run-heavy nature of his offense, but Flacco has been an efficient producer in his three-year career and has improved slightly with each season of experience he gains. Heading into his fourth season, the Ravens hope heíll take the next step Ė from good to great. While Anquan Boldin and Derrick Mason (if he re-signs) are aging, they remain generally effective possession targets, and second-round pick Torrey Smith provides Flacco with a big-play threat he's never had. With three solid wideout targets, a deep group of tight ends and Ray Rice serving both as an efficient runner and standout backfield target, the conditions should be favorable for Flacco in 2011.

2010

The expectations are lofty this year for Flacco now that Anquan Boldin is in tow. But can Derrick Mason hang on for one more year at age 36? Behind Mason there are question marks such as Mark Clayton and Donte Stallworth. The tight end position is going to be average at best. Boldin has starred as a No. 1 guy and is at the peak of his powers so you have to assume that Flacco has a top-10 weapon. If Mason doesnít suffer a major decline, Flaccoís environment is good. But that Mason decline can happen at any moment, as could an injury ó the risk of which increases with age. Flacco is a target in the last starting QB/first backup strategy.

2009

Thereís a lot of hype with Flacco because he won last year as a rookie, which is quite an accomplishment but worthless for fantasy owners as ďQB winsĒ are not a scoring category. Alas, he had a sub-7.0 YPA overall, and even on first downs. He was 21st in red-zone opportunities and 24th in red-zone points. Sure, heíll be given a longer leash now as a sophomore, but itís a long way up even to being average for Flacco from a fantasy standpoint. The arm strength is real. He made a couple of incredible throws last year, including one 30-yard out pattern against the Dolphins in the playoffs. But the arm strength wasnít there in ways that can be qualitatively measured Ė just a 79.1 QB rating on FAS (11-to-20-yard throws), slightly below average. His poor throw percentage of 15.7 was very high. And his yards per completion were just slightly above average Ė 11.6 to the average rate of 11.4. Given the construction of the Ravens team and the reliance on their defense and offset running game (when they often deploy three tackles so defenses canít identify their gap responsibility), itís hard to see Flacco making the leap up to the 20-TD threshold, the bare minimum for fantasy starter consideration.

2008

The Ravens QB position has been a disaster since even their Super Bowl days. It hasn't been for lack of trying. They invested heavily in Kyle Boller, tried to move up in the draft to take Byron Leftwich and then cast their lot with Steve McNair. That's three strikes and youíre out for Brian Billick, who actually had a reputation for being a QB-maker when he was with the Vikings. There are no QB makers, only good QBs. And those are impossible to identify until NFL bullets are flying for real. The Ravens reached for Joe Flacco after at least trading down for once in the draft. He was a second-round talent, say the draftniks. But they don't know who the good QBs are going to be, either. The Flacco projection is pure guesswork. He has no big-game experience playing at Delaware. He is 6-6, which is useful in seeing over linemen. While he has a big arm, he isnít athletic and played in a weak conference that didnít even have NCAA-caliber speed on defense. Now he's going to see NFL speed. That's like going from the slow batting cages into the big leagues. Cam Cameron's offense will look to emphasize the run. Boller will have a short leash even if he's playing well. He wasn't awful last year, though, and might be a short-term solution if the matchup that week is right. But he and Flacco are both waiver wire fantasy guys at best.
