Marquise Brown Fantasy Football News 2020

11:10am EDT 10/11/20

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.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh sees more deep passes as the next evolution in QB Lamar Jackson's game. "Those corners are going to be one-on-one and those safeties are going to be one-on-one against receivers, especially on some downfield throws, and we got to make them pay for it. We absolutely have to make them pay," Harbaugh said. "The ability to make them pay for tilting their defense toward stopping our run game with a really, really efficient passing game. I do believe that's the next step of this offense. I really do believe Lamar is going to take the next step." Jackson was already efficient on deep balls last year, posting the league's 6th highest passer rating on throws 20+ yards downfield, according to Pro Football Focus. But he ranked just 19th with 55 pass attempts of 20+ yards. It sounds like Harbaugh wants that number to rise in 2020. Baltimore certainly has the right guys at WR to make that happen. Marquise Brown, Miles Boykin and Devin Duvernay all boast plus speed.

Ravens WR Marquise Brown had offseason surgery to remove the screw from his left foot, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Brown had surgery on that foot in January 2019 to repair a Lisfranc injury, so this procedure was likely planned. He's expected to be limited in Baltimore's offseason program but be ready for the start of training camp, per Rapoport. We'll keep an eye on Brown's rehab. Durability remains a concern for the diminutive speedster.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh doesn't believe WR Marquise Brown was at full strength throughout the 2019 season. "Marquise was really not 100 percent most of the year and that was pretty obvious, right?," Harbaugh said. Brown missed most of the offseason recovering from January surgery to repair a Lisfranc injury and dealt with hip, ankle and thigh injuries during the season. He flashed his upside with outings of 4-147-2 in the opener and 7-126 in the playoff loss to the Titans -- but Brown was held under 50 yards in 11 of 15 games. Hopefully a healthy offseason will lead to more consistency in 2020.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson, RB Mark Ingram and TE Mark Andrews are inactive for today’s meaningless game against the Steelers. Don’t expect WR Marquise Brown to play much, if at all. QB Robert Griffin draws the start, but QB Trace McSorley is also expected to play. Gus Edwards and Justice Hill will handle backfield duties. Avoid the WRs and TEs.

Ravens TE Mark Andrews (ankle) and WR Marquise Brown (illness) -- both questionable -- are not expected to play today against the Steelers, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. That's what we've been assuming all week. The top-seeded Ravens have already announced other lineup changes in a finale that carries no meaning for them. Pittsburgh's team D, meanwhile, carries big upside against Baltimore's offensive skeleton crew.

The forecast for today's Ravens-Bills game calls for 15-20 mph winds with gusts of 30+. QBs Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen both do a lot of their fantasy damage on the ground, so neither guy is significantly hurt by the weather. We would slightly downgrade WRs John Brown and Marquise Brown with deep passes likely to be impacted.

The Ravens expect WR Marquise Brown (ankle) to play against the Bills today, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. Brown faces a tough matchup with Buffalo CB Tre'Davious White, though, and isn't a good fantasy bet for Week 14.

Ravens WR Marquise Brown (ankle) is active. He’s still not at 100% but carries big upside vs. Houston’s 30th-ranked WR defense.

Ravens WR Marquise Brown (ankle) is expected to play against the Texans today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Brown missed practice Thursday but put in a limited Wednesday workout and returned to limited practice Friday. Brown played through a questionable tag for the injury last week but did spend just 39% of the offensive snaps on the field. That was Brown's lowest share since the season opener. He'll carry big upside against Houston, but there's also some re-injury risk. Weigh the risk vs. reward as you decide between Brown and your other WR options for Week 11.

Ravens WR Marquise Brown (ankle, thigh) is active for today’s game against the Bengals. He was added to the injury report on Friday, but there was never any concern that we heard about his status. The rookie is a boom/bust WR3 in Week 10 fantasy lineups.

Ravens WR Marquise Brown (ankle, thigh) is expected to play against the Bengals today, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Brown was added to the injury report on Friday and limited in practice, but we never heard any concern about his availability for this one.

Ravens WR Marquise Brown (ankle, thigh) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Bengals. He was added to the injury report on Friday and limited in practice. Brown is expected to play on Sunday, but it's clear that he's not at 100%. Consider him a risk/reward WR3 in the plus matchup.

Ravens WR Marquise Brown (ankle, thigh) is active for tonight’s game against the Patriots. He was limited in Wednesday and Thursday’s practice but sidelined on Friday, when the thigh issue was added to the injury report. ESPN’s Jamison Hensley said Friday that he expects Brown to be on a snap count tonight. Throw in in a matchup against New England’s #2 WR defense, and the rookie is a shaky fantasy play.

Ravens WR Marquise Brown (ankle, thigh) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Patriots. He was limited on Wednesday and Thursday but sidelined on Friday, when Baltimore added the thigh to the injury report. HC John Harbaugh expects Brown to play vs. New England, but ESPN’s Jamison Hensley believes he’ll be on a snap count. Facing the league’s 2nd-ranked WR defense, Brown belongs on fantasy benches this week.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh said Monday that WR Marquise Brown (ankle) is on track to return for this weekend's game against the Patriots. The rookie missed the last 2 games and hasn't reached 50 yards since Week 2. He might still be an asset down the stretch, but we'd try not to use Brown in Week 9 fantasy lineups.

Ravens WR Marquise Brown (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Seahawks. Willie Snead, Chris Moore, Seth Roberts and Miles Boykin will continue to serve as Baltimore’s top 4 WRs.

Ravens WR Marquise Brown (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Seahawks but didn’t practice all week. He was in the same boat last week before missing the win over the Bengals. Brown seems like a long shot to play this Sunday.

Ravens WR Marquise Brown (ankle) didn't practice on Wednesday. He's yet to hit the field since injuring that ankle in Week 5. We'll see if that changes tomorrow.
