Last year, there were Denver Pro Bowlers Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders and not much else, as those two pass catchers accounted for 80 percent of the team's production at wide receiver.
This year, coaches are excited about the leaps being made by holdovers Bennie Fowler, Jordan Norwood and Cody Latimer, all of whom stepped it up in the playoffs and are now vying for the No. 3 receiver job this summer.
''I've said from day one: that really has the chance to be the strength of our team,'' HC Gary Kubiak said Sunday. ''It's going to be really hard to make our team at that position.''
The bad news is the QB position is up in air right now. Mark Sanchez could be the starter and has been inconsistent through most of his career but especially as of late with the Eagles. The battle for the team's WR3 spot could have some fantasy impact so it's worth monitoring.
BAL WR Marlon Brown - Week 5, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 5 vs. Cleveland
Marlon Brown will fight with Darren Waller and Chris Givens for snaps across from Kamar Aiken this week against with Steve Smith Sr. likely sidelined with a rib injury. He only had nine yards on two catches last week, and will struggle to stand out this week, despite getting a few more passes thrown his way. Aiken is the only Ravens receiver we’ve seen step up in any way so far, and it’s risky to assume Brown will be able to put up big numbers. He should probably remain on waivers.
