WHEN TO PICK HIM: Flacco is not an elite fantasy option -- think studs like Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees and Tom Brady -- and he might not be as productive as second-tier guys like Peyton Manning and Cam Newton. But if he picks up where he left off in the playoffs, he could be a mid-round steal that outscores fellow quarterbacks like Tony Romo, Matt Ryan and Matthew Stafford. Based on ESPN live draft results, Flacco is 15th among quarterbacks with an average draft position of 113.8, which is either the ninth or 11th round, depending on whether you are in a 12-team league or a 10-team league. I would not pick him before the eighth round, but if you are waiting to take a QB, picking Flacco might pay off. Finally.
