Week 7 vs. New Orleans Saints
Joe Flacco was quiet last week in a shut-out victory over the Titans. He threw for 238 yards, a touchdown, and a pick as he handed the ball off 30 times to the Ravens’ trio of running backs. Flacco is currently averaging 298 passing yards per game, which would be a career high for him, and he’s on pace for 24 touchdown passes, which would be third-most in his career. He’s not a great starter, but a decent fallback option and backup from time to time.
Only the Buccaneers and the Falcons have allowed more fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks than the Saints this season, and Flacco should be forced to throw the ball against the Saints’ prolific offense. Fantasy owners should consider Flacco a strong streaming option this week with a great matchup.
