Brown snared four of his seven targets for 87 yards during Saturday's 17-3 divisional-round loss to the Bills.
Analysis: Brown was the only perimeter target who posed much of a threat to Buffalo, as the second-year man was the lone Ravens wideout to exceed 25 receiving yards on the night. Tyler Huntley nearly found Brown for an explosive fourth-down gain in the fourth quarter after the receiver slipped past Tre'Davious White in coverage. However, the ball sailed over Brown's outstretched hands, leaving him devoid of a reception after Lamar Jackson's (concussion) late third-quarter exit. Brown remained somewhat of a boom-bust fantasy asset in 2020, with seven performances of 75 -plus receiving yards but seven others of fewer than 40 yards. Eight receiving TDs buoyed Brown's value, bringing him to a total of 15 scores through his first two NFL seasons.
Brown caught seven of nine targets for 109 yards in Sunday's 20-13 wild-card win over the Titans. He also rushed twice for 19 yards.
Analysis: Brown led the Ravens in all major receiving categories, bringing his usual element of speed to the team's passing game. In fact, his yardage total marked his highest of the campaign, as did his nine total touches. After finishing the regular season with six touchdowns in his last six games, Brown kept his momentum going without scoring Sunday. He figures to remain one of Baltimore's most important playmakers as the team now turns its focus to the AFC divisional round.
Brown recorded five receptions on eight targets for 41 yards and two touchdowns in Week 17 against the Bengals.
Analysis: While it wasn't a massive stat line, Brown managed to deliver two touchdowns. That effort concluded a strong finish to the season for Brown, as found the end zone six times in as many games. While his campaign was tumultuous due to drops and inconsistent target volume, he still took a significant step forward from his rookie campaign, increasing his targets, receptions, yards and touchdowns. Brown will have the chance to take another step forward in his third season, but for now his focus will remain on a playoff matchup against the Titans.
Brown brought in all four of his targets for 25 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' 27-13 win over the Giants on Sunday.
Analysis: The speedster opened the scoring on the day with his six-yard scoring grab in the first quarter, his fourth touchdown in the last five games. After a difficult four-game stretch between Weeks 8 and 11 when he generated an anemic 6-55-1 line, Brown has rebounded to record 21 receptions for 297 yards and four scores in his last five games. He'll look to stay hot to close out the season in a Week 17 battle versus the Bengals.
Brown (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Giants.
Analysis: Brown missed practice Thursday due to the knee issue, but he returned to full activity Friday to take a questionable designation into the weekend. With Brown experiencing no setbacks heading into Sunday, he should be able to take on a normal snap load as the Ravens' No. 1 receiver. Brown has reached the end zone in three of his last four outings while racking up 17 receptions for 272 yards over that stretch.
Brown (knee) "is likely a go" for Sunday's game against the Giants, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.
Analysis: Official confirmation of the wideout's status will arrive before the first wave of Sunday kickoffs, with the Ravens taking on the Giants at 1:00 ET. In his team's 40-14 win over the Jaguars in Week 15, Brown led Baltimore's receiving corps with six receptions on seven targets for 98 yards.
Brown (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants after being listed as a full practice participant Friday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: The speedy wideout popped up on the Ravens' Week 16 injury report Thursday after he sat out that day's practice, but his 'full" listing Friday suggests that of the 10 players deemed questionable by the team, Brown is among those most likely to be a go Sunday.
Brown (knee) missed practice Thursday, Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Analysis: Brown was added to the Ravens' Week 16 injury report Thursday, so his status for Sunday's game against the Giants will now need to be monitored. A return to practice, in any fashion, on Friday would bode well for his chance of suiting up this weekend, but if Brown ends up out or limited, Miles Boykin, Dez Bryant and perhaps Devin Duvernay would be in line for added looks Sunday.
Brown recorded six receptions on seven targets for 98 yards in Week 15 against the Jaguars.
Analysis: Despite spending most of the week on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Brown managed his highest yardage total since Week 1. He did so primarily on the strength of explosive receptions of 44 and 28 yards. The only thing missing from the performance was a touchdown, though he had a target near the goal line and was also dragged down only four yards away from the end zone on a separate play. Brown will draw a Week 16 matchup against the Giants.
Brown has been activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: The same applies to Miles Boykin and James Proche, which solidifies the Ravens' depth at wideout in advance of Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Per Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com, the trio were high-risk close contacts, but now that's he has passed through the necessary protocols, Brown should be able to handle his normal role in the offense Sunday.
Coach John Harbaugh noted Friday that "everything is on track" for Brown -- who's on the the reserve/COVID-19 list -- to be available for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Analysis: The same applies to fellow wideouts Miles Boykin and James Proche, with the trio's Week 15 status hinging on them continuing to test negative for COVID-19 in advance of Sunday's contest. Brown caught two of his six targets for 50 yards and a 44-yard touchdown in Monday night's win over the Browns. The speedster continues to be a big-play threat when he's available and has now scored in three straight games.
Coach John Harbaugh relayed Wednesday that Brown, James Proche and Miles Boykin were identified as close contacts and haven't tested positive for COVID-19, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: The report adds that while the trio of wideouts won't be able to practice this week, they could all be available for Sunday's game against the Jaguars if they continue to test negative in the coming days.
Brown (undisclosed) has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Analysis: The same applies to fellow wideouts Miles Boykin and James Proche, a context that taxes the Ravens' wideout depth for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Brown's placement on the list means that he either tested positive for COVID-19 or has been in close contact with an infected person or persons.
Brown caught two of six targets for 50 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 47-42 win over the Browns.
Analysis: Brown was plagued by multiple drops over the course of Monday's contest, but came up big when it mattered most. Facing fourth-and-five while down a touchdown with under two minutes remaining, Brown ran deep for a dramatic 44-yard score to save his night and Baltimore's hopes of victory. In doing so, Brown also found the end zone for the third straight game, giving him considerable momentum ahead of a tasty matchup against the hapless Jaguars in Week 15.
Brown reeled in five of his eight targets for 39 receiving yards and a touchdown during Tuesday's 34-17 win against the Cowboys.
Analysis: Brown capitalized on another ample workload, as Lamar Jackson made his return from the reserve/COVID-19 list. The second-year receiver broke out last week with four catches for 85 yards and a touchdown against the Steelers, after being held scoreless and posting fewer than 40 receiving yards for three consecutive outings Weeks 9 through 11. He now finds himself with eight targets in consecutive outings, as the Ravens head into a Week 14 Monday night matchup against the Browns' No. 23 pass defense.
Brown secured four of eight targets for 85 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' 19-14 loss to the Steelers on Wednesday.
Analysis: Brown ended up comfortably pacing the Ravens in receiving yardage, an accomplishment made possible by his 70-yard touchdown connection with third-string quarterback Trace McSorley in the fourth quarter. Brown showed off his elite speed on the play, one in which he gained 54 of the yards after the catch on his way to the end zone. The score was only Brown's third of the campaign and first since Week 8, which also came at the Steelers' expense. The second-year wideout will look to carry over the momentum into a Week 13 battle against the vulnerable Cowboys secondary Tuesday night.
Brown had no catches on three targets against the Titans.
Analysis: Brown's tough second season reached a new low on Sunday as he was held without a catch for the first time in 2020. He drew just three targets on Lamar Jackson's 29 dropbacks while Mark Andrews, Willie Snead, and Dez Bryant all saw more looks. Brown has just two touchdowns all season and hasn't had more than 50 yards in four games since the bye. He'll face the tough Steelers secondary on Thanksgiving.
Brown caught just two of six targets for 14 yards in Sunday's 23-17 loss to New England.
Analysis: Shutdown corner J.C. Jackson was all over Brown in this primetime matchup, smothering the wideout at the line of scrimmage and even keeping pace with the speedster and picking off a deep shot by Lamar Jackson. The 23-year-old has fallen into a three-game cold spell, tallying just 55 receiving yards over that span after racking up 376 yards over his previous six contests. The Ravens have faced three elite secondaries during Brown's slump, which may explain why the deep threat has been held in check. Things won't get any easier with the Titans and Steelers (who held Brown to three yards in their previous meeting) on tap for Weeks 11 and 12 respectively.
Brown caught three of five targets for 38 yards in Sunday's 24-10 win over the Colts.
Analysis: Lamar Jackson only needed to attempt 23 passes on the afternoon, and while Brown did tie Mark Andrews for the team lead in targets, the modest volume didn't translate into much production. Brown has managed only an 8-98-1 line on 13 targets over the last three games combined, and he'll face another tough matchup in Week 10 against the Patriots, especially if Stephon Gilmore (knee) is able to return to action.
Brown caught one of two targets for a three-yard touchdown against the Steelers.
Analysis: Brown's target volume plummeted to a season-low and his catch and yardage totals followed suit. He struggled to generate separation to garner targets and his two targets came in the same sequence, with the first target being caught but out of bounds in the back of the end zone. Brown was otherwise invisible on Baltimore's drives, and that's while playing a season-high 94 percent of the snaps. Baltimore's passing offense is struggling and Brown is among the players feeling the burn from those struggles. The Ravens take on Indianapolis on the road Sunday.
