Editor’s Update 1:11 p.m.: Head coach John Harbaugh said that Brown is officially a game-time decision for Sunday.

The Baltimore Ravens host the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 6, but they might be without a playmaker for the game. Wide receiver Marquise Brown injured his ankle in Week 5, and has yet to return to the practice field. The team will publish their official injury report Friday afternoon, but beat writer Jeff Zrebiec is reporting he is not practicing. Three straight DNPs does not bode well for his chances of being active this Sunday.

Fantasy football analysis, Ravens WR Marquise Brown

Brown found the end zone in Week 5, but otherwise it’s been a relatively quiet few weeks after his monster start. Brown had 12 receptions for 233 yards and two touchdowns in the first two games of the season. In the three since, he’s had nine receptions for 93 yards and a touchdown. Mark Andrews has been a more consistent target, and Willie Snead has found himself more involved.

The Ravens play at 1:00 p.m., so you’ll know early on if he’s available. Odds seem good he sits, so you’ll need to figure out other options. It doesn’t help Lamar Jackson, but again, Brown has been quiet enough in recent weeks that Jackson should not be downgraded too much.
