How to handle Marquise Brown, Dez Bryant injuries in Week 16 fantasy football

Marquise Brown and Dez Bryant are on the Ravens final injury report for Week 16. We break down what it means for fantasy football roster decisions.

Game status: Both Brown and Bryant are ACTIVE for Week 16.

Game day update: Marquise Brown is “likely a go” in Week 16, per Tom Pelissero.

The Baltimore Ravens listed both Marquise Brown and Dez Bryant as questionable on this week’s official injury report. However, there is reason to believe that the two wide receivers will be in uniform and ready to roll against the New York Giants on Sunday.

Fantasy impact: Marquise Brown (knee), Dez Bryant (thigh)

Brown missed practice on Thursday with a sore knee, but returned as a full participant on Friday. Bryant sat out Wednesday’s session, was limited on Thursday, and got in a full session on Friday. It’s a good sign that both will be ready to go for Sunday’s 1 PM ET kickoff.

As far as fantasy football goes, Brown is worth a spot in lineups this week. He’s now been targeted at least six times in his last four games, and last week he caught six passes on seven targets for 98 yards. The Ravens just don’t throw enough to make Bryant a viable fantasy option this week.
