Sit-em: Joe Flacco (BAL) @ Minnesota
Joe Flacco has quietly had a very disappointing season and people aren’t talking about it. The Baltimore Ravens didn’t enter the season with much expectation, but they have still underachieved.
Flacco has been historically bad this season. He has twice as many interceptions as touchdowns and has yet to throw for 250 yards this season. It can not all be blamed on his subpar team. There are rookies on worse teams with better numbers than Flacco.
Everyone was talking about Ben Roethlisberger being done last week, but why isn’t Flacco in the same conversation? He has been statistically the worst quarterback in a division that includes the Cleveland Browns. That should tell you all you need to know about his 2017 season so far.
If you are still starting Joe Flacco in fantasy football than you are loyal to a fault. He should’ve been out of your lineup weeks ago and this week will only get worse. Minnesota is still one of the best defenses in the NFL, and Flacco’s top target Jeremy Maclin is questionable for this game. Avoid not only Flacco, but the Ravens entire offense this week.
