Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco completed 18 of 28 passes for 177 yards, no touchdowns and an interception in a Week 6 win over the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Flacco has thrown for less than 200 yards in each of the last two games, but Denver has won both so you can bet they won't willingly shy away from that formula. The veteran isn't worth owning in most leagues.

Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco went 22-of-38 for 303 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in Week 4 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: It was easily Flacco's best fantasy performance of the season. The 34-year-old took advantage of a secondary missing Jalen Ramsey and even led a late drive that put the Broncos ahead with 1:32 remaining, but the defense could not hold up their end of the bargain. Flacco should be considered an uninspiring QB2 in fantasy for Week 5 when the Broncos visit the Los Angeles Chargers.

Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco went 20-for-29 for 213 yards, zero touchdowns and one interception against the Green Bay Packers in Week 3.
Huddle Up: Flacco has thrown only two touchdowns over the first three games but does have good pass catchers to work with on offense. He will be facing a solid Jacksonville Jaguars defense next week and can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco completed 35 of 50 passes for 292 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT in the team's Week 2 loss to the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Flacco played it safe, completing primarily short passes and making just one mistake, but it was a big one, as he was intercepted at the one-yard line. If one of your QBs went down Sunday and you're looking for a decent backup you could do worse than Flacco.

Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco completed 21-of-31 passes for 268 yards, one touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 1 game against the Oakland Raiders on Monday, Sept. 9 in his team debut.
Huddle Up: Flacco didn't put up huge numbers, and he never really does, but he didn't make any mistakes either. He jelled nicely with Courtland Sutton, combining for seven grabs and 120 yards, he hit Emmanuel Sanders for a score and he has some nice new toys in Noah Fant and DaeSean Hamilton. The Broncos offense struggled in this one, but they should be better as the season goes on. Still, Flacco remains more of a low-end QB2 in most fantasy formats.

Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco threw three interceptions during practice Saturday, July 20.
Huddle Up: Flacco is on track to be the starting quarterback this season and will look to post better numbers than he did last season. He will have a decent receiving corps to work with this season but likely will only be a low-end No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco will be the only quarterback that works with the first-team offense during offseason workouts, according to head coach Vic Fangio.
Huddle Up: Flacco likely needs to work with the starting offense this offseason since he is learning a new offense. He will have a solid group of receivers to work with in 2019 but has thrown less than 20 touchdowns in three of the last four seasons. He should only be a low-end No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco is expected to be the team's starter for a while, according to GM John Elway, who said he envisioned Flacco and QB Drew Lock as a 'Brett Favre-Aaron Rodgers situation' with the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: For those that need a refresher, the Packers drafted Rodgers in 2005 but did not start him until 2008. That would put Lock on track for the starting nod for the 2022 campaign. Of course, that ignores just how poorly Flacco has played in recent years, and given how much Elway has struggled with QBs in a post-Manning world you have to wonder how long the leash would be if Flacco continues to trend downwards. At this point it's hard to see much value in Flacco or Lock in single-year leagues.

Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco said Friday, March 15, that he's as healthy as he's ever been and is planning to be the team's quarterback solution for the foreseeable future. 'I hope they are dragging me out of this building a long time from now,' Flacco said.
Huddle Up: Flacco just turned 34, but with the myriad rules now favoring the offense and the passing game, quarterback lifespans certainly are longer than they used to be. If the Broncos can shore up their offensive line and add a pass-catching weapon or two -- namely a threat at tight end -- Flacco could be in line for a solid QB2 bounce-back fantasy season this fall.

Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco is entering his prime, in the opinion of general manager John Elway. Denver's offensive system is similar to the system Flacco succeeded in with former Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator and former Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak. Furthermore, head coach Vic Fangio knows Flacco and coached with the Ravens when Flacco was there.
Huddle Up: The addition of Flacco was a divisive move by the Broncos. Flacco is 34 years old, so it's hard to believe he's in his prime. If Denver can get a couple solid years out of him then it will be a win. Nonetheless, he is not and has never been a reliable starting fantasy quarterback.
