Fantasy Analysis
Week 1 Projections
There are a ton of questions for the Ravens on offense, but the last month has not been kind to the Bills defense. We expect it to take some time for Flacco to develop chemistry with his offensive weapons, but this is a decent spot and we expect him to be an affordable daily league option.
Passsing: 244 Yards, 1 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 4 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Before Flacco went down in Week 10 with a torn ACL and MCL in his left knee, the cannon-armed triggerman quietly was on pace to throw for 4,466 yards and 22 touchdowns in offensive coordinator Marc Trestman's quarterback-friendly scheme with only 37-year-old Steve Smith, Sr. (Achilles' tendon) and Kamar Aiken operating as the top targets. In eight NFL seasons, Flacco's highest finish in the fantasy quarterback ranks was 12th (2010), but he has sneaky top-10 potential thanks to an upgraded and unusually deep receiver corps. The 31-year-old Flacco, Smith, Justin Forsett (broken arm) and 2015 first-rounder Breshad Perriman (knee), who missed his entire rookie year, all return healthy. Aiken and Javorius Allen should build on their solid 2015 campaigns. Free-agent Mike Wallace is only 29 and has a good chance to reestablish himself as one of the NFL's better deep threats as Flacco can throw a great deep ball. The team's decision to sign the still-capable 35-year-old Ben Watson (74 catches in 2015) suggests there are worries about Crockett Gillmore's shoulder and back injuries from last season. Maxx Williams is a candidate for a second-year leap, but Watson will cut into his playing time. If all the pieces fall in place for Flacco, he could rack up some career-best numbers. Draft him as a backup with upside.

Passing: 3900 Yards, 24 TD, 19 INT.
Rushing: 62 Yards, 3 TD.
