How to handle Marquise Brown, Willie Snead in Week 13 fantasy football

With the Baltimore Ravens rolling, will the San Francisco 49ers be able to slow down Hollywood? We take a look at whether you should play both Ravens WRs this week.

The Baltimore Ravens have been absolutely rolling lately. They’re coming off their fourth straight blowout win, this time over the Los Angeles Rams on the road. It was Hollywood who shined in Hollywood (well not exactly in Hollywood), with Marquise Brown scoring twice while catching five passes for 42 yards in the 45-6 win. Willie Snead didn’t let Hollywood have all the fun though, also catching two TD passes from QB Lamar Jackson. But after the trio combined for four TDs vs. the Rams, they’ll now have their toughest test of the season vs. the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Football Analysis: Baltimore Ravens wide receivers

I’m not quite sure what to expect out of this game. From one angle, you have two of the top offenses in the NFL. From the other, two of the top defenses. Normally offense reigns supreme, but this may not be the case considering how well the 49ers secondary has played, and how lethal the Ravens pass rush can be.

So I imagine Brown will have Richard Sherman chasing him around for most of the game. This isn’t ideal for fantasy football. I know it’s a key week with leagues heading into the playoffs, but I don’t know how much you can trust Hollywood. He wasn’t getting many targets to begin with and his value was generally tied to TDs. The same goes for Snead, who hasn’t had more than three targets in a game in five straight. I think if anything TE Mark Andrews is the receiver to look at.

Start/Sit Recommendation

Brown: Start in deeper PPR leagues, otherwise fade.
Snead: Sit.
