What to do with Marquise Brown, Miles Boykin, Willie Snead in Week 8 fantasy football

We go over Marquise Brown, Miles Boykin, Willie Snead’s fantasy football outlook ahead of the Ravens Week 8 matchup against the Steelers.

The Baltimore Ravens have struggled to find success through the air this season and have one of the least productive aerial attacks in the NFL. They’ll face the Pittsburgh Steelers’ stingy defense in Week 7 and could struggle to get production from their wide receivers.

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

Brown has taken over as Lamar Jackson’s favorite target. He’s been thrown to more than Mark Andrews so far this season and leads the Ravens in receiving yards (376). He only has one touchdown on the year despite being Baltimore’s best downfield threat. Snead has acted as Baltimore’s WR2 and has been a little more productive than Boykin despite getting fewer targets. Pittsburgh has given up the third-fewest passing yards in the NFL though, so the outlook isn’t great for the Ravens’ receiving corps.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Brown is the only option in this group who receives enough targets to be worth starting in season-long fantasy. The other two could be DFS punt plays.
