What to do with Marquise Brown, Miles Boykin, Willie Snead in Week 5 fantasy football

Will any of the Ravens’ receivers find fantasy relevancy this week?

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Washington Football Team Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

The Baltimore Ravens are scoring an average of 30.5 points per game this season. Unsurprisingly, they’re picking up most of those points and yardage on the ground. That’s not to say their top three wide receivers have been ignored completely. In fact, they have the chance for a productive outing this week against the Bengals.

Fantasy Football analysis: Ravens WRs Marquise Brown, Miles Boykin, Willie Snead

Of the three, Brown is the most relevant for fantasy purposes. He started the season with a bang, a 101-yard effort against the Browns, before disappearing for a couple games. He looked good last week, catching four passes for 86 yards. Brown is the type of player who can be hit or miss from week to week. The tricky part is that he’s such a threat to make big plays, when he’s on, he’s really on.

I like his chances this week against the Bengals. Cincy doesn’t have the softest secondary i the league, they should have their hands full against the Ravens. Boykin and Snead have produced enough—and part of the issue is how much the Ravens run the ball—to have any fantasy relevance.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start Marquise Brown. Sit Boykin and Snead.
