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 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 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.

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.
