What to do with Marquise Brown, Willie Snead, Miles Boykin in Week 3 fantasy football

The Ravens face a Chiefs defense that has handled opposing receivers relatively well through two weeks. We look at fantasy football considerations for Marquise Brown, Willie Snead, and Miles Boykin.

The Baltimore Ravens and Kansas City Chiefs close out Week 3 with a fun Monday Night Football contest in Baltimore. Both teams are unbeaten and while the Ravens have looked sharper through two weeks, both teams are playing solid football.

This game has the third highest point total at DraftKings Sportsbook, sitting at 54. The top two are Cowboys-Seahawks (56.5) and Lions-Cardinals (55.5). Expectations are high for these prolific scoring attacks, and that could bode well for the many fantasy options.

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

The Ravens remain a run-first team, with 67 carries compared to 50 passing attempts. Brown is the team’s leading receiver, catching 10 of 12 targets for 143 yards. Boykin has caught seven of nine targets for 75 yards while Snead has caught all six of of his targets for 93 yards and a touchdown.

This week, the Ravens face a Chiefs defense that has given up the fifth fewest fantasy points to wide receivers. The unit is 17th in pass defense efficiency, but they’re not giving up consistent volume numbers. Will Fuller caught eight passes for 112 yards against the Chiefs in Week 1, but no other pass catcher had more than 39 yards. Keenan Allen had 96 yards last week for the Chargers, but the remaining wide receivers combined for three receptions, 28 yards, and a touchdown. Reserve cornerback Charvarius Ward is questionable with a hand injury.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Brown is worth a flex start in most formats and a WR2 start in deeper leagues.

Snead and Boykin are not worth starting this week.
