Marquise Brown: Finishes with 57 receiving yards

Brown caught four of six targets for 57 yards during Sunday's 30-28 win over the Eagles.

Analysis: Brown's modest numbers in targets, catches and receiving yards led the team on a day the offense managed just 186 yards through the air. He totaled 163 yards on 10 combined receptions over the last two games, but this middling effort represented the third time he's been held under 60 receiving yards in six games this season. Brown, who is still on pace to top 1,000 yards for the season, will look to pick up the pace in Week 8 against the Steelers after the upcoming bye.

Marquise Brown: Top target in thrashing of Bengals

Brown caught six of his 10 targets for 77 receiving yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 27-3 win against Cincinnati.

Analysis: After working through a knee issue during the practice week, Brown paced all Ravens in targets and receiving yards, picking up his first TD of 2020 against the Bengals. In addition to his scoring breakout, Brown has now exceeded 75 receiving yards in three different games this season. He had 75-plus receiving yards just three times across 14 appearances during 2019. Next, Brown will face an Eagles defense that surrendered 239 passing yards and three passing TD in its most recent outing against Pittsburgh.

Marquise Brown: Active for Sunday's game

Brown (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Analysis: Though Brown has yet to score a TD through four games, he's seen decent volume (26 targets) in that span, resulting in 16 catches for 242 yards. Assuming no in-game setbacks Sunday, the speedy wideout - who scored seven TD in 14 games last season - should remain a key cog in Baltimore's Week 5 passing attack.

Marquise Brown: On track for Sunday

Brown (knee) is expected to play Sunday against the Bengals, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: The 23-year-old practiced as a full participant Thursday and Friday, so it's not a major surprise he's in line to play Sunday despite being listed as questionable. Brown has yet to catch a touchdown this season and has 16 catches for 242 yards on 26 targets through four games.

Marquise Brown: Tagged as questionable for Week 5

The Ravens list Brown (knee) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Analysis: Considering Brown followed a limited showing in the Ravens' first practice of the week Wednesday with full participation Thursday and Friday, so he's seemingly trending toward playing Sunday. Brown has yet to find paydirt this season, but he's seen consistent involvement in the passing game, logging between six and eight targets through each of the Ravens' first four games.

Marquise Brown: Upgrades to full practice

Brown (knee) practiced in full Thursday.

Analysis: Brown had his practice reps limited due to a knee issue Wednesday, but he's now resumed working at full capacity. The speedster looks fully on track for Sunday's matchup against an exploitable Bengals secondary. However, quarterback Lamar Jackson (knee) has now missed back-to-back sessions, though he's still expected to suit up versus Cincinnati.

Marquise Brown: On injury report with knee

Brown (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Analysis: This is the first we're hearing of a knee injury for the speedster, though you shouldn't panic yet, as it's possible this is just a routine day off. Brown showed no signs of injury in last week's win over Washington, hauling in four balls for 86 yards to bounce back from consecutive down weeks during which he combined for 55 yards on seven catches. The wide receiver's practice participation should be worth monitoring as his team prepares to host the Bengals on Sunday.

Marquise Brown: Racks up 86 yards

Brown tallied four receptions on eight targets for 86 yards in the team's Week 4 win over Washington.

Analysis: Brown delivered a pair of receptions over 30 yards in the first half to account for the majority of his production in the game. He set up the Ravens' first score of the contest with a 33-yard catch, beating Washington's secondary down the field before being tackled at the one. Due to Baltimore's run-heavy approach on offense, Brown has failed to rack up large volume through four games. However, he's made the most of the chance he's received, as five of 12 receptions have gone for 20 yards or more. He'll have another positive matchup as the Ravens line up against Cincinnati in Week 5.

Marquise Brown: Shut down in loss

Brown caught two of six targets for 13 yards Monday against the Chiefs.

Analysis: The Ravens could not get the passing game in gear Monday and Brown was no exception. He was shut down by the Kansas City secondary, registering catches of just six and seven yards after having at least one catch of at least 20-or-more yards in each of the first two weeks. Brown gets a chance to bounce back Sunday against Washington, though the Football Team has been tough on opposing receivers thus far this season.

Marquise Brown: Leads team in receiving Sunday

Brown caught five of six targets for 42 yards Sunday against the Texans.

Analysis: Baltimore went to the air just 24 times Sunday, including just seven times in the second half. Even with the lower volume, Brown led the team in targets, receptions, and yards Sunday. Brown has played 81 percent of the team's snaps, a significant uptick from the 60.4 percent he played as a rookie while working his way back from foot surgery. Not only is Brown playing a higher volume of snaps, he's also dominating the Baltimore passing game. He's seeing 113.0 air yards per game and has accounted for 47.3 percent of the Ravens' air yards. His aDOT is 18.8 yards, which is nearly the highest in the league. Brown and the Ravens will face the Chiefs in Week 3.

Marquise Brown: Eclipses 100-yard mark in opener

Brown caught five of his six targets for 101 receiving yards during Sunday's 38-6 win against Cleveland.

Analysis: The second-year man out of Oklahoma was able to take advantage of a matchup against a depleted Browns secondary, kicking off his prolific afternoon with a 47-yard catch on Baltimore's third offensive drive of the day. Brown's impact would remain evident for the remainder of the first half, as he was able to rack up more three catches of 13-plus yards during the second quarter. He garnered just two targets during the second half, but that is of minimal concern to fantasy GMs, as the Ravens were able to pound the rock throughout the third and fourth quarters by virtue of a massive lead. Week 2 presents a matchup against a Texans defense that allowed three different Chiefs to collect five or more catches, 45-plus receiving yards, and a touchdown during its season opener Thursday night.

Marquise Brown: Packs on pounds

Brown says he's up to 180 pounds, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Brown played around 170 during his final season at Oklahoma and weighed 166 at last year's combine, but he apparently dropped all the way to 157 pounds by the end of his rookie campaign. Lisfranc surgery last January likely played a role, impacting his offseason routine and even his practice participation throughout the season. Brown seems to have made a quick recovery from follow-up surgery to remove a screw from his foot this past winter, as he was back to running routes at full speed during a May workout with Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson. The reigning MVP and coach John Harbaugh both have made it clear they expect big things from their No. 1 wideout in his second pro season.

Marquise Brown: Healthy for training camp

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson says Brown (foot) is 100 percent healthy, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: It's usually up to the coaching staff to provide injury updates, but we don't have any reason to doubt the reigning MVP. Brown had a screw removed from his surgically repaired foot after Baltimore was eliminated from the playoffs, giving him plenty of time to recover before training camp. Back in May he was running routes and catching passes from Jackson, who anticipates a breakout season from his No. 1 receiver.

Marquise Brown: Looking healthy

Brown (foot) has been running routes and catching passes in workouts with quarterback Lamar Jackson.

Analysis: It's a strong indication that Brown emerged without any complications from winter surgery to remove a screw in his left foot. He initially had surgery to repair a Lisfranc injury last January, missing spring practices and the beginning of training camp. Jackson and coach John Harbaugh both mentioned that Brown was never at full strength during his rookie campaign, with the foot injury and an ankle sprain often limiting his participation in practice. The young wideout missed two games and was listed as questionable for seven others, but he scored seven touchdowns in 14 regular-season appearances and then added 126 yards in Baltimore's lone playoff game. Brown appears locked in as the team's No. 1 wideout for 2020.

Marquise Brown: Gets follow-up foot surgery

Brown had offseason surgery to remove a screw from his foot, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The screw was placed in Brown's foot when he had Lisfranc surgery last January. The follow-up procedure is less serious, as it could limit his involvement in the offseason program but should allow for full participation in training camp. The 2019 first-round pick finished his rookie campaign on a high note with seven catches for 126 yards in a playoff loss to Tennessee.

February 25, 2020 6:49 AM EST

Marquise Brown: Never reached full strength

Coach John Harbaugh and quarterback Lamar Jackson both said Brown wasn't at full strength during his rookie season, ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley reports.

Analysis: Brown had Lisfranc surgery last January and didn't begin practicing until the very end of July. His snap share trended up each week throughout September, but he then sprained his ankle on the other leg Week 5 at Pittsburgh. When all was said and done, Brown missed two games and played through a 'questionable' tag in seven others, reaching 75 percent snap share on just three occasions. One of those instances was the playoff loss to Tennessee, in which Brown caught seven of 11 targets for 126 yards. The Ravens figure to make his usage more consistent in 2020, though it's fair to wonder if Brown's slight frame might make durability a career-long concern.

Marquise Brown: Stellar effort in upset loss

Brown brought in seven of 11 targets for 126 yards in the Ravens' 28-12 divisional-round loss to the Titans on Saturday.

Analysis: The rookie had a mostly disappointing finish to the regular season, as he'd managed no more than 45 receiving yards in any of his last five games while finding the end zone only once during that span. Brown helped make up for that multi-game lull with a spectacular showing Saturday, albeit in defeat. His reception, receiving yardage and target totals all paced the Ravens for the night, and he had one of the plays of the night with an impressive one-handed grab in Titans territory in the first half. Brown finished his first pro season with a solid 46-584-7 line over 14 contests, and he'll look to put together more consistent production as the likely top receiving option in the team's air attack in 2020.

Marquise Brown: Active, but not expected to play

Brown (illness) is active for Sunday's game against the Steelers but isn't expected to play in the contest, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: The Ravens have already clinched the AFC's No. 1 seed and are expected to lean heavily on a lineup of backup players in a meaningless regular-season finale, so the team's top wideout won't be in store for any work. Brown likely would have been inactive for the contest if the Ravens hadn't already dedicated all seven of those spots to resting or injured players.

December 29, 2019 12:04 PM EST

Marquise Brown: Not expected to play Sunday

Brown (illness), who is listed as questionable on the official injury report for Sunday's game against the Steelers, is not expected to play, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: With the Ravens having already secured the AFC's top seed, coach John Harbaugh has acknowledged he would hold out a handful of key players for rest purposes. As a result, this report saying Brown will sit out is no surprise.
