Joe Flacco (QB, BAL) - Week 4 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 14% of Leagues

ANALYSIS: Although Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is coming off his worst week, he has performed much better than most expected this season. He has scored between 15-22 points in the first two weeks, and has taken care of weak matchups thus far. He tossed three touchdowns against Buffalo and threw for 376 yards against Cincinnati. The new additions in the receiving corps are paying off thus far, as John BrownMichael Crabtree, and Willie Snead are proving to help elevate Flacco better than previous receivers have been able too. It’s a little early to declare all of these signings a win for Baltimore, but how after previous signings such as Jeremy Maclin and Mike Wallace turned out these new players are already looking like better investments.

Flacco is the quarterback to add if you miss out on Eli Manning, because he’s basically been discount Eli for his entire career. That and he doesn’t quite have Manning’s soft schedule, at least at first. He gets a decent matchup in Week 4 against Pittsburgh, but after that it’s two iffy matchups against Tennessee and Cleveland. Then things get really good for Flacco as he takes on New Orleans, Carolina, and Pittsburgh again leading into a Week 10 bye. If not added this week Flacco should be added prior to Week 7 when he faces the Saints and used for that three-game stretch.
