The Baltimore Ravens got a solid debut season from rookie wide receiver Marquise Brown, and they’ll be hoping the speedster can build on it with a healthier 2020. Brown had a screw in his foot due to a late college Lisfranc injury, and it led to him regularly appearing on the Ravens injury list. He had the screw removed this offseason and he should be ready for training camp, according to Ian Rapoport.
In spite of the injury, Brown caught 46 passes for 584 yards and seven touchdowns. He broke out in a big way to open the season, catching 147 yards and two touchdowns in the Ravens win over the Miami Dolphins. He hauled in 86 yards in Week 2 and was bumped up the favorite list for Offensive Rookie of the Year. He slowed a bit from there, and then Weeks 6 and 7 due to his foot issues. He returned, but was regularly limited in practice due to what were described as ankle issues.
In fantasy drafts last year, Brown was deep down most big boards outside of dynasty and deeper keeper leagues. He’ll climb the board in 2020 drafts, and could find himself in single digit rounds if there are no setbacks with his foot. He impressed at times and is playing with Lamar Jackson, so keep an eye out for him potentially ending up overvalued in drafts.
