This might in fact be the unsexiest name in all of fantasy football, and his ADP of 92.5 (QB21) in 2QB fantasy leagues (hat tip to Salvatore Stefanile for giving the world 2QB ADP data) shows that he isn’t being drafted as anything more than a fringe QB2/backup. But should he be more than that?   Below are Joe Flacco’s season averages from 2009-2012, via Rotoviz’s...

The Baltimore Ravens are all defense… I HATE that perception

I hate the perception that the Baltimore Ravens’ defense has carried a mediocre offense throughout their history. This is just not true.
