|After a career year in 2010 with 3,622 passing yards and 25 touchdowns, Flacco was considered a solid candidate to have a breakout fantasy season in 2011. However, with Anquan Boldin in decline and Ray Rice having a career-year running the ball, Flacco never emerged as a consistent fantasy option as he failed to build on his solid 2010 campaign. Despite increasing his passing attempts by 53, his yardage total dropped to 3,610, his number of touchdown passes declined to 20 and he threw two more interceptions (12 in total). Let’s just say that Flacco’s offseason assertion that he is the best quarterback in the league may be off a tad (as in not even in the top 10). After another season of mostly dink and dunk passes (23rd in the league in yards per attempt) despite having dynamic rookie wide receiver Torrey Smith in the lineup, there is little reason to suggest that Flacco’s breakout season will arrive a year late. Consider Flacco a mid-tier backup.
| Flacco expected to start -- Sun Oct 23 3:00 am --|
|Ravens' QB Joe Flacco, listed as questionable with a shoulder injury, is expected to start today vs Jets, per source. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: Flacco missed practice time this week but is expected to play although likely at less than 100 percent. A matchup with Jets is certainly good news for the Ravens QB and WR Mike Wallace.

Missed practice Wednesday
|Ravens coach John Harbaugh said QB Joe Flacco has a right shoulder injury. "He has a legitimate shot at playing Sunday. I don't know what the percentage is, " Harbaugh said. Flacco didn't practice Wednesday. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: It sounds like Flacco will be able to go this Sunday against the Jets but we should get a better idea of his availability on Friday. Ryan Mallett would start if Flacco can't go.
