The Baltimore Ravens will have wide receiver Marquise Brown ACTIVE for Week 11 against the Houston Texans. Hollywood has been dealing with an ankle injury that held him out of Thursday’s practice. He was deemed questionable to play Friday, but will be able to suit up in a solid matchup.

Fantasy Football Analysis: Ravens passing game

With QB Lamar Jackson doing most of his damage on the ground, the only real viable receiving plays for Baltimore in terms of fantasy have been Brown and TE Mark Andrews. Had Brown been inactive, the Jackson-Andrews connection would have likely been more of a focal point should the Ravens need to throw, which seems likely taking on the Texans coming off a bye. Brown is a strong PPR play in season-long.

Houston ranks right behind Baltimore in terms of total offense at 396.7 yards per game, including 8th in points per game at 26.4. The line on DraftKings Sportsbook currently favors the Ravens by 4.5 points with a slate-high O/U of 52. This makes a Ravens stack of Jackson ($7,700), Brown ($5,600) and Andrews ($6,100) very appealing, albeit extremely expensive. With that in mind, I’d keep it to being a strict GPP play, but Houston-Baltimore overall will be a trendy game stack.
