In Week 15's matchup against the Jaguars, Marlon Brown lead all Ravens in receiving with 66 yards on 5 receptions.
Fantasy Impact: Brown made the most of his opportunities by catching all the balls sent his way. If Torrey Smith cannot get back to form because of his ailing knee, Brown may be in line to repeat this performance next week against the Texans.

Fantasy Impact: With Torrey Smith missing two consecutive practices due to a knee injury, Brown could step into a starting role. However, Miami's pass defense is ranked 2nd in the NFL, giving up less than 200 yards per game through the air. Keep an eye on practice reports, but Brown should be considered no more than a desperation start. Look to better options this week.
After a slow start to camp, second-year wide receiver Marlon Brown has picked it up of late. "He’s made great strides," coach John Harbaugh said of Brown. "Marlon made some circus catches today and had a couple of catch-and-runs on crossing routes. You can use that big body." (Source: Baltimore Sun)
Fantasy Impact: Brown surprised people last season with a Ravens rookie record 7 touchdowns. He's a big body at 6-foot-5 215, but benefited from the lack of red zone and wideout options in Baltimore last season. With Steve Smith in the fold, Dennis Pitta healthy, and Owen Daniels capable in the red zone, we wouldn't expect a statistical ascension in year two for Brown. Look at him in the WR4 range or a stash in dynasty leagues.
