Joe Flacco Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Fantasy Football News 2022

Most Recent Shark Bites

Jets QB Zach Wilson will start Sunday's game vs. the Texans, The Athletic's Connor Hughes reports. In related news, QBs Joe Flacco and Mike White were both placed on the COVID list on Tuesday. QB Josh Johnson will back up Wilson this weekend. It'll be the rookie's first action since hurting his knee back in Week 7. He's largely struggled this year and can't be trusted in fantasy lineups.

Jets QB Joe Flacco is expected to start Sunday's game vs. the Dolphins, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini. QB Zach Wilson's knee still isn't back to 100%, and the Jets are evidently done with QB Mike White after his 4-INT outing vs. the Bills last week. Flacco joined the team just a few weeks ago. He made 4 starts for the Jets last year -- albeit under a different coaching staff -- averaging 212 yards and 1.5 TDs on 6.4 yards per attempt. Flacco isn't a fantasy option, but he's also probably not a downgrade from White or Wilson at this point.

The Jets acquired QB Joe Flacco from the Eagles in exchange for a 2022 6th-round pick that can become a 5th-rounder based on how much Flacco plays for New York, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Flacco spent 2020 with the Jets, but that was under a different coaching staff. ESPN's Rich Cimini expects QB Mike White to start Sunday's game vs. the Bengals. QB Zach Wilson is slated to miss 2-4 weeks with his knee injury.

The Jaguars have traded QB Gardner Minshew to the Eagles for a conditional 2022 sixth-round draft pick. Philly also released QB Nick Mullens, positioning Minshew as at least the 3rd QB on the depth chart. He'll need only to work past Joe Flacco to become Jalen Hurts' backup. That's a nice spot for the 25-year-old Minshew, whose rookie contract runs through 2022. Jacksonville, meanwhile, has C.J. Beathard and Jake Luton around as backups to Trevor Lawrence.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts missed Thursday night's game against the Patriots with what's been diagnosed as a stomach infection, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Hurts was reportedly told to rest at home for 2 days. Beyond that, he should be good to go. We'll pass along any further upsdates.

The Eagles announced just before Thursday night's game against the Patriots that they would hold QB Jalen Hurts out because of illness. That gave Joe Flacco the start (and it didn't go well). This doesn't look like a situation that will affect Hurts' availability any further.

Jets HC Adam Gase named QB Joe Flacco his starter for Sunday's game against the Chargers. QB Sam Darnold's throwing shoulder still isn't back to 100%. Flacco turned in the Jets' best QB performance of the season last time out, chucking for 262 yards and 3 scores vs. the Patriots. Still, he'd be a desperation Week 11 fantasy play.

The Jets don't expect QB Sam Darnold to play Monday night against the Patriots after he aggravated his right shoulder injury in practice this week. That will mean a 3rd start for Joe Flacco, who managed 195 yards against the Cardinals in Week 5 and 186 against the Dolphins in Week 6. For the season, Flacco is averaging just 5.0 yards per pass attempt. He's not a significant downgrade vs. Darnold, though, if you're considering any Jets wideout for your lineup this weekend.

Jets QB Sam Darnold (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills after a limited week of practice. If he can't go, QB Joe Flacco will get another start. You should be avoiding the situation in fantasy.

Jets QB Sam Darnold (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. The tanking Jets have no reason to rush Darnold back. QB Joe Flacco gets another start after completing 55% of his 33 passes for 195 yards and 1 TD in last week's loss to Arizona.

ESPN's Rich Cimini reports that Jets QB Sam Darnold "could miss more than one game" with the sprained AC joint in his throwing shoulder. The Jets have already ruled him out for today's game against the Cardinals, leaving Joe Flacco to start. We'll see about Darnold's status for a Week 6 visit to the Chargers.

The Jets are expected to start QB Joe Flacco against the Cardinals this Sunday, according to multiple reports. That indicates QB Sam Darnold isn't ready to practice after injuring his throwing shoulder in last Thursday's loss to the Broncos. Given that you shouldn't be starting any offensive Jets player beyond WR Jamison Crowder -- and perhaps RB Le'Veon Bell, if he's ready -- this news shouldn't affect much for fantasy owners. The matchup for the Cardinals defense might even be a little better, with less of a scrambling threat in the pocket. Flacco last started nearly a year ago -- October 27, 2019 -- for Denver.

The Jets aren't planning to play QB Sam Darnold against the Cardinals this weekend, according to The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta. Darnold suffered an AC joint sprain in his throwing shoulder in last week's loss to Denver. He returned to finish out that one and reportedly wants to play this weekend -- but the team is leaning toward holding him out. That'd leave Joe Flacco under center. The Jets offense figures to continue struggling either way.

The Jets have signed QB Joe Flacco to a 1-year deal. It's worth $1.5 million with another $3 million available through incentives. Flacco is still recovering from April neck surgery and isn't expected to be cleared until "mid-September," according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. A healthy Flacco should slide in as QB Sam Darnold's backup. Darnold has dealt with a sprained foot, mono, a toe injury and another foot injury through 2 NFL seasons.

The Broncos have released QB Joe Flacco. The 35-year-old is expected to be ready for the 2020 season after missing the 2nd half of 2019 with a neck injury but will surely need to settle for a backup job on the open market. Denver is moving forward with QB Drew Lock, who has some upside as a late-round fantasy pick after an encouraging finish to his rookie campaign.

2:11pm EDT 11/1/19

The Broncos have placed QB Joe Flacco (neck) on IR, ending his 2019 season. It'll be Brandon Allen under center for the Broncos, presumably until rookie QB Drew Lock is ready to return from his thumb injury.

Broncos HC Vic Fangio announced Monday that QB Joe Flacco will miss Week 9 with a neck injury suffered in yesterday's loss to the Colts. Rookie QB Drew Lock still isn't ready to return from his thumb injury, so it'll be Brandon Allen under center for Denver. The 2016 6th-rounder has never taken a regular-season snap and averaged 6.2 yards per attempt with 0 TDs and 3 INTs this preseason. As poorly as Flacco has played, this is a downgrade for Denver's offense.

Update: Flacco has a herniated disc in his neck, according to insider Jeff Lewold. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport adds that Flacco is expected to miss "significant time." He's droppable in all fantasy leagues.
