Ravens second-year WR Brown looking like the No. 3


Ravens second-year WR Brown looking like the No. 3

Baltimore Ravens WR Marlon Brown @MB_uno4 was ranked as the 18th best player on the team by a recent poll given to a panel of Baltimore-area media members. Brown's stat line last season was 49-524-7, which is respectable for a rookie WR. Heading into 2014, Brown figures to be the team's third receiver, behind Torrey Smith @TorreySmithWR and free agent acquisition Steve Smith @89SteveSmith.

Fantasy Analysis:

Being the No. 3 option at WR means Brown will probably be on the field quite a bit. That's the good news. The bad news is that both the Smiths, as well as TE's Dennis Pitta and Owen Daniels @owendaniels, will probably see more targets than Brown does unless there is an injury to one of the top two WR's. Brown gained early-season waiver wire interest last year, catching five touchdowns in the team's first seven games. He only caught two the rest of the way. He only had double-digit targets once and his season high in receptions was only seven. Among WR's who caught 45+ balls and seven TD's, Brown ranked dead last in yards/reception, 1st downs, 20+ yard receptions, and yards/game. What does this mean? It means that his seven touchdowns make his total fantasy points last season a little inflated. We have Brown ranked as our 84th best WR, meaning in standard, 12 team leagues, each team would have to draft seven receivers to make him roster-worthy. Not someone to get excited about, despite his seven TD's last year.
