Marquise Brown is one of the bigger boom or bust plays at wide receiver every week. As always, the issue with him is that he doesn’t play a ton of snaps. Overall, Brown has been in on 46.9% of snaps this season. The positive is that he makes the most of his time on the field and is always a threat to bust a big play. Hollywood runs almost all his routes downfield and he gets targeted a decent amount considering the limited amount of time he spends on the field.
Fantasy football analysis: Ravens WR Marquise Brown
It is tough to ignore the upside of Brown and you are going to be kicking yourself if you sit him during the fantasy playoffs and Lamar Jackson finds him for a long touchdown. Considering he’s playing the Jets on Thursday Night Football, it seems like his odds of finding pay dirt are greater than normal. The Jets rank 21st in pass defense DVOA and are prone to giving up big plays in the passing game. There is a bit of volatility here since the Ravens are favored by 14.5 and could be running the ball in the first half. In most situations, Brown is going to be start this week. The only way I would sit him is if you are projected to comfortably win your matchup and don’t need to deal with the variance of a potential floor game from Hollywood.
