2020 RTSports Outlook

Brown had a solid rookie season, showing why the Ravens used a first-round pick on him. He made some big plays throughout the season, scoring seven touchdowns. He had nearly 50 receptions and 600 yards. Brown was a little erratic, having seven games with double-digit fantasy points. But he also had seven games with fewer than 30 yards. Brown was boom or bust most weeks. He is the top target in the Ravens explosive offense and should be able to improve on his rookie season. Brown is an explosive talent. He is a home-run threat with the ball in his hands. He is great on deep routes and also does well on shorter passes, including screens. He lacks a little strength and size, though.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Brown was hit or miss last year and likely could be the same this season. But even with that said, his weekly celling is high in this offense. He is going to have some huge games. He also should be able to improve his fantasy numbers. Look for around 70 receptions for 900 yards and eight touchdowns.

RotoBaller's Outlook

Marquise Brown performed admirably in 2019, especially considering it was his rookie season. He hauled in 46 of 71 targets for 584 yards and seven scores in 14 games. This performance was good enough to rank him eighth in yards and third in touchdowns among rookie wide receivers. He established himself as a ridiculous deep threat as noted by his eight catches of 20-plus yards and four catches of 40-plus yards. In the same breath, he ranked in the top 36% of the league in terms of air yards per game (53.8) and top 27% in terms of percentage of team air yards (20.9%). Another positive note is the confidence Lamar Jackson had in him as expressed via his 71 targets, which ranked second on the Ravens behind only Mark Andrews, and also ranked him in the top 23% of the league in terms of team target percentage. In 2020, Brown should only improve upon these numbers as he gains another year of experience in the Ravens' system. He is listed atop the Ravens' depth chart at wide receiver and has little in the way of competition for targets aside from Andrews. He currently has an ADP of 73 in PPR leagues and is being taken as the 31st wide receiver off the board. With another year of development and a step forward in 2020, he could easily find himself in the top 30 or higher at the position, and therefore, reaching up for him slightly should not pose much risk. Also, he makes for a solid choice in best-ball leagues.

Player Notes
May 13 3:21pm ET

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Willie Snead IV will probably see a diminished role in the offense this season, in the opinion of NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal. Second-year wideouts Marquise Brown and Miles Boykin should be the starters on the outside, but third-rounder Devin Duvernay could add a speedier element to the slot than Snead. Snead is still just 27 years old, but he caught just 31 passes for 339 yards and five touchdowns in 16 games (11 starts) in 2019 despite the Ravens not having much depth at the position and with Brown and Boykin both being rookies. Snead will still have a role in this explosive offense in 2020, but Duvernay could easily cut into his overall snaps.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Marquise Brown (foot) had offseason surgery to remove the screw from his foot, according to sources. Brown might be limited in the offseason program because of the surgery, but he's expected to be fine by training camp. Hollywood was bothered by his foot throughout his rookie season, which is why Baltimore kept his snaps limited on game day. The 22-year-old first-round pick showed flashes in his first year in the NFL, catching 46 passes for 584 yards and seven touchdowns. He's a boom-or-bust fantasy commodity as a deep threat, but his ceiling is still very high in this Ravens offense led by quarterback Lamar Jackson.

Baltimore Ravens team officials acknowledged that rookie wide receiver Marquise Brown (foot) wasn't fully healed from his foot surgery from a year ago in 2019. As a result, the Ravens expect Brown to be faster and more impactful in his second year in the NFL. Despite not being 100 percent, Hollywood Brown tied a team rookie record with seven touchdowns while also posting the fifth-fastest average maximum speed by an NFL receiver. Brown also was the first player in history with multiple 40-yard touchdowns in his first career game in Week 1. He finished with 46 grabs for 584 yards receiving. The Ravens held Brown back in practices in games, which lowered his fantasy ceiling. He'll be a boom-or-bust option for fantasy owners as a speedy deep threat, but if he's healthier in 2020, Brown could easily put up better numbers in Year 2.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Marquise Brown came to life during the loss to the Titans on Saturday, finishing with seven catches (11 targets) for 126 yards. Hollywood started off the year hot, catching four passes for 147 yards and two scores in Week 1 against the Dolphins. However, constant flirting with not playing due to injury on a week-to-week basis throughout the season, compiled with some subpar performances, Brown wasn't a consistently reliable fantasy option. Nonetheless, he should remain one of the team's top receiving options and should find himself drafted in virtually all fantasy leagues in 2020.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Marquise Brown caught both of his targets for 15 yards in Week 17's win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Brown's targets regressed as the season grew longer, making him a tricky DFS play going into this weekend's divisional-round matchup against the Tennessee Titans. Hollywood has only caught one touchdown in his last five games played, but if he's able to get free he could take advantage of a Titans Defense that ranked ninth in passing yards allowed in 2019. Regardless of the number of targets tight end Mark Andrews will see, Brown is still the No. 1 wide receiver option in Baltimore's offense. The rookie has been riddled with lower-body injuries for a good chunk of the season, but after some extended rest, he should be able to turn the jets on at full speed. Brown is worth the risk of playing in either cash or tournament games this weekend.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Marquise Brown caught both of his targets for 15 yards in Week 17's win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Brown came out of the gates this season with an electric performance against Miami in Week 1, but has since been a disappointing fantasy asset. Hollywood is still the No. 1 option on the depth chart, but with Mark Andrews hogging a majority of Lamar Jackson's targets, it's hard to predict that he will be anything more than a late-round pick up in 2020 drafts

Baltimore Ravens tight end Mark Andrews (ankle) is inactive for Week 17 against the Steelers, while rookie wide receiver Marquise Brown (illness) is active. Running back Mark Ingram, quarterback Lamar Jackson, free safety Earl Thomas, defensive end Brandon Williams and offensive guard Marshal Yanda join the inactives list as the Ravens rest up for the Divisional Round two weeks from now. In a game with no meaning for Baltimore, don't expect Brown to play much, if at all. Backup QB Robert Griffin III will be throwing to the likes of Myles Boykin, Willie Snead, Seth Roberts, Chris Moore, Nick Boyle and Hayden Hurst.

Baltimore Ravens tight end Mark Andrews (ankle) and rookie wide receiver Marquise Brown (illness), who are both questionable for Week 17 against the Steelers, are not expected to play, according to sources. The Ravens have no reason to risk further injury to their top two pass-catchers with home-field advantage already locked up for the AFC playoffs. With Andrews and Brown likely out and quarterback Lamar Jackson resting up for the postseason, Robert Griffin III will be throwing to rookie Miles Boykin, Willie Snead, Seth Roberts, Chris Moore, Nick Boyle and Hayden Hurst. It's a crapshoot for fantasy, while RG3 will likely be handing off to running backs Gus Edwards and Justice Hill most of the time against a solid Steelers Defense. Pittsburgh is in a must-win situation in this divisional contest.

Dec 27 3:10pm ET

Baltimore Ravens tight end Mark Andrews (ankle) and rookie wide receiver Marquise Brown (illness) are both questionable for Week 17 against the Steelers. The Ravens have already locked up home-field advantage for the AFC playoffs, so Andrews and Brown will play limited snaps in the regular season finale, if they even play at all. Cornerbacks Marcus Peters (chest) and Jimmy Smith (groin) are also questionable. Stay away from both Andrews and Brown in fantasy this weekend. Tight ends Nick Boyle and Hayden Hurst should share pass-catching duties with quarterback Robert Griffin III starting under center. Receivers Myles Boykin, Willie Snead, Seth Roberts and Chris Moore could see more run, but it's anyone's guess who has the better game in this run-first offense.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Marquise Brown caught one of two targets for six scoreless yards in a win vs Cleveland Sunday. Brown had a chance to make an impact on this game as he was wide open for an easy score, but Jackson couldn't get him the ball and Brown was seldom heard from again. Brown has game-breaking speed and should develop into a nice receiver for fantasy next season. For now, however, he'll be a boom-or-bust option who doesn't get a lot of targets. A matchup with the Steelers' strong defense awaits Hollywood in Week 17.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Marquise Brown caught all four of his targets for 45 yards and a 24-yard toe-tap touchdown in Thursday night's Week 15 win over the Jets. Brown was the second-highest targeted receiver in the game, trailing tight end Mark Andrews, who had seven. Hollywood plays a Cleveland Browns Defense in Week 16 that he caught four balls for 22 yards against in Week 4. Despite the good game on Thursday night, the rookie doesn't play many snaps and is a touchdown-dependent deep threat as a WR4 for fantasy owners.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Marquise Brown caught all three of his targets for a loss of two yards in Week 14's win over the Buffalo Bills. Brown's performance was disappointing and it was his second ineffective game in a row, as he caught only one ball for two yards against the 49ers in Week 13. Hollywood has a good opportunity to bounce back on Thursday Night in Baltimore's matchup with the New York Jets. The Jets Defense is allowing an average of 167 receiving yards in 2019, which is more than quarterback Lamar Jackson has thrown for in the last two weeks. Even with the good matchup, Brown should be seen as nothing more than a high-end WR3 in an offense that targets its tight ends more than its receivers.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Marquise Brown (ankle) is officially active against the Buffalo Bills. Brown recorded just one catch last week against the San Francisco 49ers- and it won't get any easier against the Bills, who have been extremely stingy against opposing receivers this year.

Dec 8 7:50am ET

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Marquise Brown (ankle) is expected to play on Sunday in Buffalo. Hollywood has been dealing with this issue for the majority of the year, so his designation throughout the week wasn't a huge surprise. The rookie fizzled in Week 13 against the 49ers after accounting for two touchdowns against the Rams in Week 12, and while the upside is there, he draws a tough matchup against a Bills Defense that is ranked in the top-six against opposing wideouts this season. Proceed with caution.

Dec 7 9:30pm ET

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Marquise Brown caught 1-of-2 targets for one yard in Week 13 against the 49ers. Prior to last week, Brown hadn't been targeted less than four times in a game this season. Part of Brown's lack of involvement was due to Baltimore attacking San Francisco with its run game, but his output was disappointing, to say the least. The Ravens matchup against a Buffalo Bills Defense in Week 14 that has been stingy to opposing wide receivers. Hollywood is a touchdown-dependent play against Buffalo and stands in low-end WR3 territory.

Dec 5 4:00pm ET

Baltimore Ravens rookie wide receiver Marquise Brown (ankle) was added to the Week 14 injury report against the Bills. He got in a limited practice on Thursday. It's not the first time Brown has been added the injury report midweek as the Ravens try to play it safe with their speedy deep threat. The 22-year-old rookie has the skills to get behind any defense for a long touchdown play, but his snaps have been heavily limited in his first year and he doesn't draw enough targets to be a realistic weekly fantasy commodity. Brown hasn't gone over 100 yards since the season opener and had only two targets last week. He'll be a boom/bust WR4 if he plays. Willie Snead, Miles Boykin and Mark Andrews would see more targets if Brown is forced to sit out.

Dec 1 5:40pm ET

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Marquise Brown caught 1-of-2 targets for one yard in Week 13's matchup against the 49ers. Brown had recorded at least two grabs in games he's played this season until this week. Tight end Mark Andrews remains Lamar Jackson's favorite target with Hollywood providing deep-threat capabilities. Going forward, Brown is looking to be a touchdown-dependent play as his production wavers too much to be a trusting option. He is a WR3 at best against the Bills Defense in Week 14.

From RotoBaller

Nov 30 8:50pm ET

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Marquise Brown caught 5-of-7 targets for 42 yards and two touchdowns against the Rams in Week 12. Brown was able to do damage against the Rams without exploding for a gain of 20 or more yards. Hollywood has a tough matchup in Week 13 against a 49ers Defense that has allowed only 18 catches for 20 yards or more in 2019. Brown's big-play ability will be stifled in this matchup and the Ravens will probably try to exploit the 49ers defense in the run game. Despite his performance against the Rams, Brown is nothing more than a middle WR3 against San Francisco.
