2011 Fantasy Football Scouting Report: Joe Flacco, QB, Baltimore Ravens

2010 Stats
  3622 yds.
  25 TDs
     10 INTs
2011 Projected
  3650 yds.
  24 TDs
     12 INTs

Flacco would be higher on this list if he had more playmakers at wide receiver. Anquan Boldin is solid, but he's not a game changer anymore. Derrick Mason and T.J. Houshmanzadeh are both possession receivers and Todd Heap has battled injuries. Flacco has a big arm, but rarely as had the opportunity to show it off. The addition of Maryland wide receiver Torrey Smith in the 2011 NFL Draft will help the Ravens stretch the field, but the rookie will be a couple of years away from having an impact in the passing game. The Ravens will use Flacco more as a game manager than as a playmaker, relying more on running back Ray Rice and their defense to control games.
