2021 Draft Rankings

Marquise Brown Note

Since being drafted by the Ravens, Brown was miscast in the go-to receiver role for them, something that was righted this offseason when the team drafted Rashod Bateman, who makes a great complement to Brown. While it was a great move for the Ravens from a football perspective, it will impact Brown's target total. He likely won't see the 100 targets he saw in 2020, though his targets should be a bit more impactful. Expect him to be somewhat of a boom-or-bust receiver, making him a WR4-type option.

I was leading the charge for Bateman during the draft process, saying he reminded me of Keenan Allen. After landing with the Ravens, I'm not so excited about him anymore. The Ravens have targeted their wide receivers just 393 times over the last two seasons, a number that four teams hit in 2020 alone. The passing will likely increase in 2021 after the acquisitions of a few pass catchers, but they're not going to be changing their entire philosophy. We need targets in order for Bateman to break out, and it's tough to project him getting even 100 of them, making him a bench hopeful in fantasy.

There was a time where people were excited about what Boykin might bring to the table. That time has passed, as he's now entering his third season with just 32 receptions under his belt. He's actually performed solid on a per-target basis, but his opportunity is gone with the additions of Rashod Bateman, Sammy Watkins, and Tylan Wallace to the wide receiver depth chart. He wasn't fantasy relevant without them, so he sure as heck won't be with them.
