2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
Longtime Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco heads to Denver this season, replacing below-average starter Case Keenum who was simply not the long-term answer at the position. Of course, trading for a player who was benched for Lamar Jackson in 2018 might not be the answer either. Flacco started just nine games for the Ravens this past season, throwing just 12 touchdowns with six interceptions, finishing as the No.31 fantasy quarterback despite his 273.9 passing yards per game, the second best mark of his career.

While he may have been unlucky in the touchdown department in 2018, Flacco's career high is 27 touchdown passes, which he achieved in 2014, but his career average is just 19 touchdowns per season. To put that into perspective, 20 different QBs threw more than 19 touchdowns in 2018. In fact, two different Tampa Bay quarterbacks threw for 17 or more touchdowns last season.

What he lacks in touchdown upside, Flacco unfortunately does not make up for as a runner. He ran for just 45 yards in 2018 and failed to rush for even one touchdown for the first time since 2009. He's eclipsed 100 yards in a season just once in his career, making him one of the least-threatening runners at the position.

Flacco now goes to a new offense with unproven weapons that he's unfamiliar with. Courtland Sutton is a high-end prospect and fellow 2018 rookies DaeSean Hamilton and Tim Patrick showed some ability but the only pass catcher who's done anything significant in the NFL is Emmanuel Sanders who will almost certainly miss time this season as he continues to recover from a late-season Achilles injury.

Another threat to Flacco's production is rookie Drew Lock who was one of the more highly touted prospects, albeit in an admittedly weak quarterback class. Still, Flacco owners should keep an eye on the rookie. If Denver ends up being out of playoff contention early again this season, there's really no reason to keep Lock on the bench.

Flacco lacks the upside to be a QB1 in fantasy and his downside is riding the bench, which is why he's likely to be one of the last starting quarterbacks selected even in 2-QB and SuperFlex formats, while being left undrafted in typical leagues.

Drew Lock a training camp holdout?
Agent wants QB premium
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jul 16, 11:00 am

Denver Broncos
Negotiations between the Broncos and rookies Dalton Risner and Drew Lock have snagged to the point the team may have a couple second-round training camp holdouts. According to multiple sources, Lock’s agent is seeking a "quarterback premium," which is common for QBs taken in the first and third rounds. Lock was taken in the second round. (Second-round QBs since 2014 did not receive a premium). The premium Lock is seeking would mean either more money or more full guarantees in Lock’s contract than Risner’s slotted amount. And Risner’s agent understandably doesn’t want to take less than the player selected behind him (9News.com)

FFToday's Take: If Lock (42nd pick) gets a QB premium he would be receiving more money that the Broncos 41st pick which is causing the friction. This will likely get resolved sooner rather than later. Lock is scheduled to backup Joe Flacco in 2019 but it wouldn't be a shock if he makes a couple starts towards the end of the season.


Injury Courtland Sutton think's he's the No.1 WR
Sanders not expected to be ready until mid- to late-August
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jul 9, 11:15 pm

Denver Broncos
"I’m excited going into this season knowing that I am going to get to be the No. 1 and I’ll get all of the looks and all of the pressure,’’ he said. If new passer Joe Flacco and the Broncos’ offense under new coordinator Rich Scangarello are to make an immediate positive impact in 2019, Sutton must do more in year two. Emmanuel Sanders, who was the team’s No. 1 receiver last year until he suffered a late-season Achilles injury, is not expected to be full-go for team drills until mid- to late-August. (9News.com)

FFToday's Take: With Sanders recovering from Achilles injury, Courtland Sutton has an opportunity to become the Broncos main receiving target in 2019. Whether or not he takes advantage of the opportunity is another story. The Broncos reciving corps is young with DaeSean Hamilton and Tim Patrick filling out the top four on the depth chart. Sutton is worthy of a mid-round flier in both standard and PPR leagues.
