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.

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.
