WR - BAL
Week 7 Outlook
Hollywood had his worst statistical game of the season in Week 6 in Rashod Bateman's debut. Should fantasy managers be concerned moving forward? Obviously. But Brown is enjoying the most productive campaign of his career, and that's not going to be completely derailed by the rookie.
There's no reason for Brown investors to panic just yet, but it's at least worth noting that rookie Rashod Bateman has six targets last weekend in his NFL debut - he missed the first five games of the season while recovering from a core injury - while Brown had five targets. Granted, it's a narrow margin and a small sample size in a game where the Ravens led comfortably throughout and Lamar Jackson attempted only 27 passes. Brown is the WR6 in fantasy scoring, so it might seem silly to worry about a rookie encroaching on his fantasy value, but, well ... Bateman is good. I don't think Brown's 4-35-0 stat line in Week 6 is a reason for panic, but beware the possibility that Bateman might steal some of Brown's value. Brown is nevertheless a solid play for Week 6, checking in at WR16.
The Bengals are 11th against fantasy wide receivers, Brown's big-play ability always gives him a chance to be a WR1.
Through six games, "Hollywood" has seen 24% of Baltimore's targets with a 14.2 ADOT and 32% of the air yards share. He's having the best, and most consistent, campaign of his brief NFL career. With the Ravens throwing more than ever in the Lamar Jackson era in 2021, Brown sets up as a strong WR2 moving forward.
