Scouting report

BAL WR Marquise Brown - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Marquise “Hollywood” Brown followed up a strong Week 5 performance with just four catches on five targets and 35 yards last week. It was largely because the Ravens didn’t need to throw the ball a ton in a 34-6 thrashing of the Chargers, but it’s worth noting that rookie Rashod Bateman had six targets in his first regular-season game as a pro.

This week, Brown should get back on track against a Bengals defense that ranks 16th in aFPA to opposing wide receivers this season. The Bengals can put up points in a hurry, so I would expect a closer game, leading to more pass attempts and more production from the Ravens’ receiving corps. We have Brown ranked as a fringe WR1 option this week, and he should be active in all formats.

BAL WR Marquise Brown - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. Los Angeles Chargers

Marquise “Hollywood” Brown lived up to his name on Monday night against the Colts, catching nine of 10 balls for 125 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Brown has had at least one touchdown in all but one game this season, and he’s averaging 7.6 targets per game. There is some concern about his target share decreasing with Rashod Bateman being added to the lineup, but for now, he’s the main receiver in Baltimore.

It’s a tough matchup for Brown this week against a Chargers defense that ranks second in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. Still, it’s likely we have another high-scoring game against a potent Chargers’ passing attack, making another 10 targets very possible for Brown. We have him ranked as a solid WR2 option this week.

BAL WR Marquise Brown - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 vs. Indianapolis Colts

After some key drops in Week 3, Marquise “Hollywood” Brown caught a long touchdown last week against the Broncos, ending up with four receptions on five targets for 91 yards. Despite his drops in Week 3, Brown has a touchdown in three out of four games this year and hasn’t had less than five targets in any outing. We’ll see if the addition of Rashod Bateman to the lineup affects Brown’s target share, but for now, he’s still a major part of this offense and has a nose for the end zone.

This week, he’ll face a Colts defense that ranks 18th in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. Brown’s ability to find the end zone and his target share make him worth considering in a game where it should be easier to throw than to run. We have him ranked as a solid WR2 option, and he should be active in all formats. Start him.

BAL WR Marquise Brown - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 at Denver Broncos

Marquise “Hollywood” Brown had some key drops last week in a forgettable day for the Baltimore offense. He ended the day with three catches on seven targets for 53 yards. Brown had been pretty solid thus far this season, and the targets should still be there, making this kind of a buy-low moment for him.

That being said, be wary of his matchup this week against a tough Broncos defense that ranks fifth in aFPA to opposing wide receivers this season. We have him ranked in WR3 territory, and he definitely has upside in that role if you need some punch in your lineup. That being said, start him knowing it’s a risk in a tough matchup.

BAL WR Marquise Brown - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 at Detroit Lions

Marquise “Hollywood” Brown was targeted 10 times on Sunday night against the Chiefs, catching six balls for 113 yards and a touchdown. He now has a touchdown in two straight games, and in seven of his last eight, dating back to last season. Brown has been inconsistent throughout his career, but with these kinds of targets and the way he finished 2020, fantasy managers should raise an eyebrow in his direction moving forward.

It’s a nice matchup for Brown this week against the Lions, who are missing their top corner for the season and allowed a big game to Deebo Samuel in Week 1. The Lions ranked 28th in aFPA to opposing wide receiver a year ago, and Brown has some WR2 upside in a great matchup. Start him.

BAL WR Marquise Brown - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs. Kansas City Chiefs

Marquise “Hollywood” Brown caught all six balls thrown his way last week against the Raiders, gaining 69 yards and scoring a touchdown to open up the season. Brown now has seven touchdowns over his past seven regular-season games, dating back to last year, and he’s been more consistent in targets than most think. He had 100 targets in 2020 and 71 as a rookie.

The Chiefs ranked fifth in aFPA to opposing wide receivers last season, so it’s not a great matchup for Brown. The Browns were able to move the ball by throwing more to the tight end position last week, but the upside is there in a game that could be high-scoring. Brown is risky but should be considered a solid WR3 with upside going into Week 2.

BAL WR Marquise Brown - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 at Las Vegas Raiders

Marquise “Hollywood” Brown led the team with 100 targets last season and with rookie first-round pick Rashod Bateman shelved for at least the first few weeks of the season, Brown should once again see primary receiver targets. He’s been wildly inconsistent, however, and this offense has been focused on a ground attack. That being said, eight touchdowns last season and significant downfield speed gives him boom-or-bust upside in any given week.

The Raiders were awful on defense last year – 21st in aFPA to opposing wide receivers – and while they should improve this season, it’s still a nice matchup for Brown. That being said, it’s hard to trust any of the Ravens’ wide receivers and keep an eye on Brown’s health status. He should play but is hobbled. Either way, fantasy managers should probably avoid him in all but the deepest of leagues.
