Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco said he does not think the team needs to draft a wide receiver despite losing WR Torrey Smith to the San Francisco 49ers in free agency.
Huddle Up: Currently listed atop the Ravens' WR depth chart are soon-to-be 36-year-old Steve Smith and undrafted third-year wideout Marlon Brown with Kamar Aiken, Michael Campanaro and Aldrick Robinson serving in reserve so expect the franchise to do what Flacco was too polite to mention and draft a WR or two -- likely using one of their top picks in the process.

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco will have his fourth difference offensive coordinator in as many years in offensive coordinator Marc Trestman. However, head coach John Harbaugh is confident Flacco will get along with Trestman after the quarterback was involved in the decision to hire Trestman in the first place. "I think personality-wise, they're going to hit it off really well. They've both very smart, they're both very detailed and they're both very direct in their communication,' Harbaugh said.
Huddle Up: Flacco had a career season with 3,986 yards and 27 TD passes last year under OC Gary Kubiak, and he should be just fine under the aerial-oriented Trestman.

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco was sacked four times and hit 10 times Sunday, Nov. 2, during the 43-23 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 9. 'They do a good amount of things, and they try to put pressure on the quarterback,' Flacco said.
Huddle Up: Flacco was less than prolific down the stretch with only 1 300-yard passing game in his last seven outings and needed a pair of fourth-quarter TD passes Sunday to get the Ravens into the playoffs. The Steelers, though, rank among the league's lower third in terms of the fewest points allowed to opposing fantasy QBs, and Flacco should have some opportunities to make plays if he gets decent protection.

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (undisclosed) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17.
Huddle Up: Flacco appeared to come out of last Thursday's win in good shape and practiced Tuesday, but he created a mini buzz as a Wednesday no-show for undisclosed reasons. A source, however, has told the Baltimore Sun it's "nothing serious." If Flacco is back in full Thursday, consider it a non-issue.

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco said he's become more comfortable in offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak's offense.
Huddle Up: Flacco hit career highs for passing attempts (614) and yards (3,912) last season but had the second-lowest single-season TD pass total (19) of his career while tossing a career-high 22 picks to finish as a low-end QB2. Flacco's numbers are bound to improve, but not enough to escape QB2 territory.

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco said the new offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak's playbook is not very difficult to learn, noting the main change from last year's system is the terminology is 'completely different.' Flacco said the offense is playing faster because of a more streamlined playbook, which allows players to 'do what they're good at' because of having fewer things to consider.
Huddle Up: Kubiak's offenses are noted for a zone-blocking running scheme and play-action passing attack, which will surely incorporate plenty of deep passes to take advantage of Flacco's strong arm.

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco has looked to be a good fit in offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak's system based on his performance during offseason workouts.
Huddle Up: Flacco was a disappointment last season after leading the Ravens to a Super Bowl and inking a fat new contract. While it's unlikely the Ravens will get their money's worth from Flacco, something closer than last year's fiasco would be appreciated.
