Dynasty & Redraft: WR Marquise “Hollywood” Brown, Ravens

Recommended Posts

Quote

Marquise Brown caught 4-of-4 targets for 45 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' Week 15 win over the Jets.

Brown also added a 43-yard DPI penalty that set the Ravens up at the one-yard line. Badly beaten, Jets LB Neville Hewitt simply tackled Brown in the end zone. Brown's touchdown was a beautiful 24-yarder where he got his second foot down with a feathery touch in the back of the end zone. It was a needed night from a wideout who had been 4/-1 over his past two games. Brown's monster games have been few and far between, but he will have some WR3 appeal for the fantasy finals against the Browns.

People in here think he's a good buy low candidate in dyno? Have considered acquiring him since the start of the season, but have played it cautiously and waited it out.

I think he is a good buy low candidate if the owners are will to part with him.  I would hope his nagging injury can heal this offseason and he isn't listed on injury report every week.

Oh yeah, he's tied to one of the best young QBs in the league and will have all kinds of opportunities to get behind the defense each game.  He looks good.

If you wait until his price goes up it's too late. Injuries are the big concern for me. I own him in 2 leagues and plan on holding.

Marquise Brown caught 7-of-11 targets for 126 yards in Baltimore's stunning Divisional Round loss to the Titans.

Oft-injured and entering nearly every game with a designation, it's unsurprising Brown, who avoided Baltimore's Divisional Round injury report altogether, capped off his rookie year with just his second 100-plus yard performance of the season. Heading into Week 1 fresh off a Lisfranc injury he dealt with throughout the offseason, 'Hollywood' exploded for 4/147/2 in his regular season debut against the Dolphins then totaled 42/437/5 over his next 13 appearances. His seven touchdowns (in a limited showing, nonetheless) still tied for Baltimore's rookie franchise record. With a full offseason to rehabilitate and return to health, Brown's explosiveness in one of the league's most exciting offenses will undoubtedly land him as a high-upside mid-round selection in fantasy drafts next year.

Ranking the 2019 rookie wide receivers for dynasty fantasy football

Excerpt:

Quote

3. MARQUISE BROWN, BALTIMORE RAVENS

Key stat: Of 75 qualifying wide receivers, Brown ranked first in passer rating when targeted (134.4) and 11th in fantasy points per route run (0.45).

Brown was the first wide receiver drafted in 2019, and he probably had the best landing spot, but he finished the season just eighth in receiving yards (584). Sure, looking at the raw numbers, Brown’s rookie season might appear underwhelming, but on a per-route or per-target basis, his numbers were among the best in the league. And, I think that’s the larger story in a season marred by injury.

Brown spent much of the offseason rehabbing from Lisfranc surgery (typically a massive disadvantage for any rookie), and then spent nine of 16 games on the injury report listed as questionable. During the regular season, Brown played on just 58% of Baltimore’s snaps when active. During the postseason, Brown appeared to be unleashed, playing on 85% of the snaps and turning 11 targets into 126 yards.

Like his most common pre-draft player comparison (DeSean Jackson), Brown may always struggle with injuries (perhaps due to his slight frame). But, he was hyper-efficient in college (by yards per route run and depth-adjusted yards per target), he was hyper-efficient in rookie season, and he’s tethered to the league’s reigning MVP for the foreseeable future. As I see it, so long as he can stay healthy, the sky’s the limit

Ravens WR Marquise Brown had offseason surgery to remove a screw from his foot.

While this process eliminates any complications Brown may experience with his foot moving forward, it does make the the sophomore wideout questionable for Baltimore's offseason program. The 22-year-old was "rarely at 100 percent" (per coach John Harbaugh) during his breakout rookie season despite finishing with an impressive 46/584/7 receiving. Expected to return to full strength by the team's season opener, Brown will likely fall as a boom-or-bust WR3 in Best-Ball leagues throughout the offseason.

Marquise Brown 2020 Outlook: A Solid Deep Threat

Quote

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.--Kipp Heisterman - RotoBaller

I would love to have Hollywood and I expect he will make the leap to be a WR1, if he stays healthy. The ability to stay healthy and on the field a full season is my only concern, but that is a real concern so you have to adjust your ranking of him accordingly.

Lamar Jackson can regress and still have epic 2020 season behind elite Ravens squad

Excerpt:

Quote

#FantasyHotTaek

Andy: If you wanted some sort of regression take on Lamar Jackson, you got the wrong guy. He can regress a fair amount and still comfortably finish among the top fantasy QBs. Instead I’m gonna say that Marquise Brown makes a second-year leap in terms of total production, drawing over 100 targets and finishing as a top-24 receiver for fantasy purposes. Hollywood was a highlight machine as a rookie, but he was operating at less than 100 percent health all year. He clearly has 1,000-yard potential in 2020.

Ravens offensive coordinator Greg Roman believes WR Marquise Brown has had "a great offseason physically."

Roman is rightfully excited to see his young No. 1 receiver to get back to full health this offseason following an inconsistent rookie season, partially because of his Lisfranc injury. Brown averaged just 42 yards in 2019 but closed the year with a 7-126-0 receiving line against Tennessee in the playoffs. Following the season, Brown had surgery to remove the screw from his foot and has been rehabbing ever sense. With training camp just a month away, we'll see if Brown is truly back to full health or not. If he is, Brown will be a WR3 target in fantasy drafts. Lamar Jackson led the NFL in passing touchdowns (36) despite Baltimore's league-low 468 quarterback dropbacks.

Marquise Brown gained 23 pounds this offseason and is up to 180 after playing at 157 as a rookie.

Brown weighed in at 166 in the pre-draft process and reported to Oklahoma at 144 as a freshman, so he's put on some serious weight. Teammate WR Willie Snead said Brown looks to be in phenomenal shape. We're typically not fans of skill players adding a bunch of weight, but Brown thinks he can still keep his speed with the added poundage. Brown said he had the Ravens send him a GPS tracker to make sure he wasn't losing any of his speed, which is Hollywood's best asset. Brown is a very popular year-two lift-off candidate. He's currently coming off the board as the WR30 in half-PPR drafts in the sixth round.

That's a lot of pounds.

For young guys still growing into their bodies, perhaps just embracing proper nutrition and fitness, it's not as drastic.  He was very slim so had the room to add them.
