Anyone else think that J. Flacco could finally make the jump to being a top 8-9 fantasy QB? Obviously Brees/Brady/Rogers are on top, with Stafford close. I think we're seeing Matt Ryan blossom with all of his weapons, and i'd still put Peyton unquestionably above him. Eli and Romo are probably better as well (and will finish with better stats), but I could see Flacco slipping right into that 9 spot. I'm not sure I'd be more excited to have Rivers, and I think I'd pretty clearly prefer him to Big Ben.
Am I just reading too much into things, or does anyone else think he has the potential to put up big numbers. He was finding a lot of people last night (although not Ray Rice out of the backfield), and the receiving corps (with the emergence of Pitta) is pretty good. Anyone else as high on him as I am?
Yes. Very. Targeted Flacco and Cutler in all my leagues. Neither will crack Top 5, but both have a chance to crack Top 10 QB. Not bad for their ADP.
One negative is that both the Ravens and Bears Defense are so stout, which limits the 'shoot out's / playing from behind / garbage stats' that make guys like Stafford, Brees, Rivers, Romo much more valuable.
