Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
I keep moving him up my rankings. Might have to reach a round early to grab him and his huge ceiling.Coaches are removing him from special teams to focus on being a WR. Up.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
When your team is throwing the ball just 439 times the entire season, it's going to be hard to become a consistent fantasy option. It's going to be even harder when you're a rookie who was coming off foot surgery and dealing with ankle injuries throughout the year. That was the reality for Brown, who played just 14 games, yet finished as a top-50 fantasy wide receiver. The team added a few wide receivers in the draft ,but no one who should trump him in targets. If the Ravens drop back to pass a bit more in 2020, Brown could be a legitimate breakout option, though he shouldn't be drafted as anything more than an upside WR3/4.Did you know that among wide receivers who've seen at least 30 targets, Mecole Hardman's 13.1 yards per target ranks as the third-highest mark among wide receivers over the last 10 years? His 2.77 PPR points per target ranked as the fourth-best mark in that time. He's good, we know that, but will he get the targets necessary to start him confidently? He's one of those players who can certainly take the leap into the top-30 receivers if he gets the opportunity, which is rare to find in the late rounds.

Hollywood Brown is a massive value because of *where* he sees his targets. @GrahamBarfieldThe separation he generated before the catch was crazy. And with the ball he easily ran away from 4.4 defenders. Made plays in the return game too. @KevinColePFF Hardman has only played the WR position for three years so far, two at UGA and one in KC, his progression has been dramatic.
Kyle Yates

Unfortunately, Brown doesn't exactly play in the best offense to maximize his skills for fantasy football. He has the talent to be a top-24 WR, but the Ravens simply do not pass the ball enough for him to return value. He's a boom/bust play that's best plugged in as a WR3/FLEX option on a weekly basis.Hardman's electric with the ball in his hands, but he simply doesn't see enough volume to be relevant for fantasy football. He's going to be battling it out with Watkins for targets this season, but he still may only be fourth on this team. Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill, and potentially even Clyde Edwards-Helaire should all see a significant amount of targets in this offense. Hardman can certainly take any play to the house, which makes him an intriguing FLEX play in certain matchups, but otherwise he's probably not going to be consistent enough to have weekly value.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
I won't be drafting Marquise Brown in any leagues outside Best Ball this year. His upside is massively capped by the way the Ravens run their offence and by his style as a mostly deep threat. While he'll have some massive games, he's equally likely to score you less than five points. In fact he failed to pass 23 yards in half of his starts. You can talk about injuries and regression all you like, I'll draft a guy I may at least have a chance of feeling comfortable starting.Every year, fantasy experts latch onto young kids with great opportunities. Mecole Hardman was that guy last year and this year, he appears to be that guy again. The Chiefs offence will be explosive in 2020, but will Hardman have a role? The running backs should have a greater receiving role with CEH and Damien Williams back while Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill are the clear studs. Sammy Watkins is still the clear second receiver in KC, regardless of what some will have you believe, and that means you shouldn't break the bank for Hardman. His 11th round price is too rich for me, but he is a fine gamble if you're all set by then.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
The good news: He was the leading target getter at WR. The Bad: The Ravens were 32nd in attempts in 2019, meaning Marquise had 71 targets. I do believe he can be an elite deep threat, with plenty of opportunity to gash the defense when they cheat up to sop the run but that is a narrative versus the numbers that Baltimore is most likely to repeat. He did have the screw removed from his foot this offseason so hopefully he can stay healthy. I see him as a flex play with upside, but the upside is not the ceiling in this case.. There are big Trusses in the wayPlayed a lot when Tyreek was out. And surprisingly very little with him back. HOWEVER. Demarcus Robinson is a FA and Sammy is thinking about chillin' out, and at the very least will be taking a pay cut. And Mecole's speed is absolutely a game changer if he gets onto the field more.
