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

Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Greg Roman said he thinks wide receiver Marquise Brown (foot) has "had a great offseason physically." Brown had an up-and-down rookie season while dealing with a Lisfranc injury that required surgery. Despite playing only 14 games, he still managed to finish as a top-50 fantasy wideout in a run-first offense. It speaks to the upside the deep threat has in the NFL as their No. 1 receiver, and he could see a breakout second season if his injury woes are behind him. The 23-year-old finished with 46 catches (71 targets) for 584 yards and seven touchdowns in 2019. Hollywood Brown is a boom/bust WR3 with plenty of upside heading into his sophomore campaign.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Marquise Brown has plenty of hype heading into the upcoming season. The sophomore shined at times during his rookie season in 2019 and was the team's leading wideout, finishing the year with 46 catches for 584 yards and seven touchdowns. He missed two games as a result of an ankle injury, but with that issue seemingly behind him, the 23-year-old may benefit from opposing teams looking to stop the Ravens' run-heavy offensive approach. Brown is expected to be a late-round selection in fantasy drafts for the 2020 campaign. Fantasy managers who need to fill a void should keep him in mind as he has a genuine chance to surpass his ADP expectations, especially if he can pull in a few more receptions on a week-to-week basis.

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.
