NFL.com Fantasy Live analyst Dave Dameshek really lamented over which sleeper to pick during a recent segment we filmed, before finally settling on Ravens QB Joe Flacco.
Flacco certainly made Dameshek seem like a genius on Saturday night.
Flacco torched the Giants for over 229 yards and two touchdowns during just over a half of work in what will be the final tuneup for most starters. Flacco is currently below guys such as Kevin Kolb and Eli Manning in the current NFL.com ratings.
You do not want to put too much emphasis on one game. But Flacco seemingly put it all together against the Giants. As Dameshek points out in the video, Flacco has the weapons now, along with a solid ground game. And he certainly has looked better than Kolb this preseason. And he out-played Manning head-to-head.
If I get myself into a position where I miss out on the top seven guys — I hope not to — Flacco is one guy that I would seriously consider drafting. Although if you want to go deep album cut, what about Matthew Stafford? The Lions are looking really nice.
