Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson will have his top wide receiver in action, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Marquise Brown is listed as questionable for Week 11, but Schefter is reporting Brown is expected to play. Brown has been dealing with an ankle injury. He was limited in practice on Wednesday and Friday, and sat out Thursday’s practice.

Fantasy football analysis: Ravens WR Marquise Brown

This is a great opportunity for Brown to build on last week’s solid performance. He had four receptions for 80 yards and a touchdown, which was his biggest performance since Week 2. The rookie got off to a hot start but slowed down in recent weeks. It’s worth noting he had nine route-running plays last week, so we’ll see if that number increases after another week of recovery.

The Texans have given up the third most fantasy points to wide receivers this season. They held the Jaguars mostly in check the game before their Week 10 bye, but the Raiders and Colts in back-to-back weeks had four double digit wide receiver performances between the two of them.

Brown is worth starting in most leagues this week.
