Joe Flacco, QB, Baltimore Ravens vs Denver Broncos
DraftKings Price: $5,400
Flacco is coming off an extended rest period after throwing the ball 55 times last Thursday against the Bengals for 375 yards, 2 TD’s and 2 INT’s. The Ravens offense looks like a new team after a much needed overhaul from the talentless unit they had last season. Through two weeks of play, Flacco ranks seventh amongst QB’s with a respectable 612 passing yards along with a 5-2 TD/INT ratio.
This week, Flacco gets a home matchup against a Denver Broncos team that is allowing an average of 293 yards and 2 TD’s per game to opposing QB’s. This is one of the toughest games to predict the outcome of this week and should be a closely fought matchup that will require both teams to throw it early and often. Flacco makes for a solid volume play with upside for over 300 yards and multiple passing touchdowns.
