2015 Outlook: Fantasy HandcuffLast updated on Jun-05-2015 by Shawn Childs
Brown ended up having no value in 2014 after flashing upside talent in 2013 when he caught 49 passes for 524 yards with seven TDs on 82 targets. He suffered a pelvis injury in early October that led to him being inactive in a couple of games. He caught 24 of his 31 targets last year for 255 yards with no TDs. He had a stretch over seven games where Marlon caught every target (18 straight catches). In his career, Brown is only averaging 10.7 yards per catch. He has excellent size (6'5" and 216 lbs.), which gives him value at the goal line. His 2013 season suggests there is more in the tank, but his lack of playing time in 2013 paints a cloudier picture. His experience may lead to him starting early in the year, but his lack of explosiveness will limit his opportunity over the long haul.
Ravens injured wide receiver Michael Campanaro has become the forgotten man in Baltimore this offseason. He was projected as the Ravens' potential WR2 this season before suffering a quad injury. Now all the talk is about Kamar Aiken, Marlon Brown and Breshad Perriman. Don't be shocked if he re-emerges as a potential starter. He says he's back to full strength and on track for training camp. "As of right now, I feel 100 percent," said Campanaro. "Working everyday to have a great training camp."Fantasy Analysis:
Campanaro could be an interesting prospect this season. Somebody is going to emerge as the WR2 in Baltimore and will have value. Before the injury he was the favorite to win the job, slightly ahead of Aiken. Personally I like Brown, still, the job is completely up in the air. Regardless of who wins the job, don't count on them being a superstar. More than likely they'll be a waiver wire plug-and-play guy that will be serviceable in emergency situations.
