News: Flacco had his best game of the season in Sunday's 38-10 win over Carolina, hitting 22 of 31 passes for 327 yards and three touchdowns. Impact: Flacco has managed at least 327 yards in two games this season, and he's tossed only two picks.(STATS, 9:39pm)

News: Flacco completed 22-of-31 passes for 327 yards, with three touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's 38-10 win over the Panthers. Impact: Flacco played pretty well for most of the afternoon, but also had a lucky day. His 61-yard touchdown to Steve Smith was the result of a slightly overthrown pass that deflected off the hands of TE Owen Daniels. Flacco was also bailed out by his receivers on a few occasions, and reigning DPOY Luke Kuechly dropped an easy interception on a terrible throw. Though he didn't play as well in Sunday's game as the stats suggest, Flacco is still on pace for the best season of his career, with 1,055 passing yards, a 63.4 completion percentage, and 7:2 TD:INT through four games. His accuracy has been better than it was last season, which likely has something to do with the Ravens' massively improved offensive line. Flacco also has a better receiving corps, despite losing Dennis Pitta to a hip injury for the second year in a row.(RotoWire, )

News: Flacco's teammate, starting left tackle Eugene Monroe, will miss multiple weeks after undergoing a minor surgical procedure on his knee, The Ravens' official website reports. Impact: The Baltimore offensive line has thus far been massively improved from last season, looking like a top-10 unit just one year after making a case to be considered the worst group in the league. Some regression can now be expected, as Flacco not only loses his blindside protector, but also swaps out a Pro Bowl-caliber player for undrafted rookie James Hurst. To be fair, Hurst was a four-year starter at North Carolina, and likely would have been drafted if not for the broken leg he suffered as a senior. Still, Flacco has repeatedly shown that he's only as good as the offensive line in front of him, and it looks like a downgrade is coming. On the bright side, Monroe is expected to return this season, and the Baltimore offensive line still looks better than last year's. Also, Flacco gets a string of friendly matchups after Sunday's tough one against the Panthers.(RotoWire, )

News: Flacco turned in another uninspiring performance in Sunday's win at Cleveland, going 19 for 31 for 217 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Impact: Flacco is averaging just 5.97 yards per attempt through three games.(STATS, 4:17pm)

News: Flacco completed 19-of-31 passes for 217 yards, with one touchdown and one interception in Sunday's 23-21 win over the Browns. He also added six rushing yards on four carries. Impact: The Ravens relied on their running game for much of the contest, but then rode Flacco's arm in the fourth quarter. Flacco played well for a second straight week, notably dropping a pass right into Steve Smith's arms for a 32-yard gain that set up the game-winning field goal. The lone interception occurred when Flacco was crushed while throwing downfield, with the impact causing the ball to pop up in the air for an easy pick. Flacco's line and receivers mostly played well, but Jacoby Jones dropped what would have been a long gain on a near-perfect throw. Though headed for a bounce-back season behind a much-improved offensive line, Flacco still doesn't figure to have many big fantasy games. He also lost one of his favorite targets, with Dennis Pitta exiting the game due to a dislocation of the same hip that he fractured and dislocated last year.(RotoWire, )

News: Flacco (illness) is active for Sunday's game against the Browns. Impact: Flacco missed practice Wednesday due to a cold, but he was a full participant Thursday and Friday. With Bernard Pierce out with a thigh injury, the Ravens could rely more on Flacco's arm to move the ball against a solid Browns secondary.(RotoWire, )

News: Flacco (illness) is probable for Sunday's game against the Browns, the Ravens' official website reports. Impact: After missing Thursday's practice, Flacco was a full participant both Thursday and Friday. He merely had a cold, and should be back at full strength for Sunday's game.(RotoWire, )

News: Flacco is dealing with a cold that caused him to miss practice Wednesday, the Baltimore Sun reports. Impact: While Flacco sat out Wednesday's practice, the report notes that Flacco's illness isn't thought to be serious, so his status for Sunday's game against the Browns does not appear to be in peril.(RotoWire, )

News: Flacco has returned to practice one day after missing workouts with an illness. The Baltimore Ravens quarterback said on Thursday that he had picked up a stomach virus from his son. He said, "I feel better," adding that he "didn't want to get the whole team sick." Impact: Flacco, who has never missed a start, says he could not recall missing a practice before, either. He is expected to make his 99th consecutive regular-season start Sunday when the Ravens play at Cleveland. Flacco completed 21 of 29 passes for 166 yards and two touchdowns to lead the 1-1 Ravens to a 26-6 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers last week. (STATS, 3:35pm)
