Marquise Brown Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

New Ravens WR Sammy Watkins expects OC Greg Roman to "open up" the offense this season. “He’s going to utilize us in so many different ways," Watkins said. "He’s got a complex offense. I know the world hasn’t been seeing that yet, but he’s definitely going to open it up this year, run the ball and do, I’m pretty sure, all types of things with this offense.” We'll believe it when we see it. All 8 of Roman's offenses have ranked in the bottom 4 in pass attempts. That includes 32nd-place finishes in Baltimore the last 2 years. And when Watkins played under Roman in Buffalo, the Bills finished 31st and 32nd in pass attempts. Perhaps the Ravens chuck it a bit more in 2021, but it won't be enough to make Watkins, WR Marquise Brown and TE Mark Andrews reliable weekly fantasy plays. Watkins figures to be the odd man out.

The Ravens have agreed to a 1-year, $6 million deal with WR Sammy Watkins, including $5 million guaranteed, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Watkins should slot in as at least Baltimore's #2 wideout in targets. Of course, it's not the best offense for receiving production. The Ravens have attempted the league's fewest passes each of the past 2 seasons. Last year's 406 attempts were the fewest by any team since Seattle in 2012. Watkins makes for a decent best-ball option in the double-digit rounds of fantasy football drafts, but he's not likely to turn into a reliable redraft starter.

Ravens WR Marquise Brown (knee) is active for today’s game against the Giants. He was added to the injury report and sidelined on Thursday but returned to a full workout on Friday. Brown should be ready for his regular role today.

Ravens WR Marquise Brown (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants. He was added to the injury report and sidelined on Thursday but returned to a full workout on Friday. Brown should be good to go for this one, but check back Sunday to make sure he's active.

Ravens WR Marquise Brown is active for today’s game against the Jaguars. He missed practice all week as a close contact on the COVID list. We don’t expect him to be limited today, though, and the matchup makes him an upside WR3.

Ravens WRs Marquise Brown, Miles Boykin and James Proche have been activated from the COVID list and are eligible to play vs. the Jaguars tomorrow. Brown has scored in 3 straight while totaling 22 targets. He has plenty of upside in a pristine matchup against a beat-up Jacksonville secondary.

Ravens WRs Marquise Brown, Miles Boykin and James Proche were deemed close contacts and have not tested positive for COVID, HC John Harbaugh said Wednesday. The WRs won't be able to practice this week but will be eligible to play vs. the Jaguars on Sunday if they continue to test negative. We'll continue to monitor the situation.

Ravens WRs Marquise Brown, James Proche and Miles Boykin have been placed on the COVID list. We'll see if they tested positive for the virus or were just close contacts. If all 3 are out vs. Jacksonville this weekend, Willie Snead, Dez Bryant and Devin Duvernay would be left as Baltimore's top 2 WRs. TE Mark Andrews, of course, would be the heavy favorite to lead in targets.

The Ravens had no new positive COVID tests on Saturday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, and their game vs. the Steelers is still on for Tuesday night. QB Lamar Jackson, RB J.K. Dobbins and RB Mark Ingram -- along with a host of others -- will miss the game on the Baltimore side. Pittsburgh will be without RB James Conner.

This week's Ravens-Steelers game is "tentatively" being moved to Tuesday night, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. That's presumably if Baltimore doesn't have any more COVID positives. There still seems to be a decent chance that this game isn't played in Week 12. Even if they play on Tuesday, QB Lamar Jackson, RB J.K. Dobbins and RB Mark Ingram will remain out. Stay tuned.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson has tested positive for COVID. He's 1 of 4 Baltimore players who returned a positive test on Thursday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. "No way it can be played," a source told Schefter of Sunday's Ravens-Steelers game. That one is still on for now, but fantasy owners should start planning as if Ravens and Steelers players won't be available. Jackson is definitely out for Week 12. And Baltimore is scheduled to play the Cowboys next Thursday night, further complicating the situation. QB Robert Griffin will start for the Ravens if they play on Sunday.

The NFL has moved this week's Steelers-Ravens game from Thursday night to Sunday afternoon as Baltimore deals with a COVID outbreak. For now, the only impact is a 2-game, rather than 3-game, Thanksgiving slate. We'll continue to keep an eye on the situation in Baltimore. We imagine more COVID positives could push the game out of this week.

Ravens WR Marquise Brown (knee) is active for today’s game against the Bengals. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday, so the knee shouldn’t be an issue.

The Ravens list WR Marquise Brown (knee) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday, so he's clearly on track to play. But it's at least notable because it's the 1st time Brown is on the injury report this season. He's a risk/reward Week 5 fantasy play.
