Joe Flacco is entering the prime of his career and is coming off a pretty good season in which he threw for 3,622 yards and 25 touchdowns. That being said, he lost Todd Heap, Derrick Mason and T.J. Houshmandzadeh this offseason. Flacco isn’t in the same class as the top eight or so quarterbacks but he would be a super backup with upside.
Ray Rice was a top-five pick a year ago but didn’t live up to his price tag. The problem was that Rice only had six total TDs. Every time the Ravens got close to the goal line, the vulture back Willis McGahee would come in. McGahee is gone but he was replaced by Ricky Williams, who will likely take some goal-line carries away from Rice this season. Despite his lack of TDs, Rice is still a top-10 back, especially in PPR leagues.
Anquan Boldin should get a ton of looks now that the three aforementioned ball catchers are out of town. According to Mock Draft Central, Boldin is currently being taken 25th among receivers, after guys like Kenny Britt and Percy Harvin. Yes please.
On the other side, Lee Evans just received a huge bump in value after being traded from Buffalo. In his first game with the new team, Evans hauled in three balls, including a 43-yard pass from Flacco. Look for a lot of hit-or-miss games from Lee. All he can really do is run deep.
