Yahoo! Ownership: 21%
Over the last three weeks, Joe Flacco has experienced a remarkable turnaround. A forgettable fantasy option in the first 11 games where he averaged 170.5 yards per game while throwing more interceptions (11) than touchdowns (9), Flacco has rebounded to become the seventh-best fantasy quarterback In Weeks 13-15 as he's recorded 57.2 fantasy points (19.1 per game). During the stretch, the Baltimore Ravens' signal-caller is averaging over 275 passing yards per game while racking up 6 touchdowns (5 passing, 1 rushing) compared to just 1 pick. With a date with the Indianapolis Colts on the schedule for Saturday, we are in store for another dose of the good Flacco in Week 16.
And it's because the Colts have allowed 257.3 passing yards per game -- only the Buccaneers and Giants have surrendered more. Opposing quarterbacks specifaccly have benfited from playing the Indy secondary, averaging the eighth-most fantasy points every week while posting the highest yards per attempt average (8.3) in the league.
