Ravens HC John Harbaugh confirmed on Wednesday that QB Joe Flacco (back) is "ready to roll" for Week 1. He resumed throwing in late August and returned to practice this past weekend. Flacco isn't a recommended Week 1 fantasy play on the road against the Bengals. But his availability is good news for Baltimore's skill-position guys.
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.
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.
