Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 13 Half PPR Rankings

Marquise Brown Note

Brown has now seen double-digit targets in four straight games. What's odd is that Brown has largely been used as a short-area receiver in Baltimore's last two games. He had 6-37-0 on 13 targets in a loss to the Dolphins, then 8-51-0 in 10 targets in a 16-10 win over the Browns. Over the last two games, Brown has averaged 6.3 yards per catch and 3.5 yards per target. That's probably just a blip on the radar, but it's certainly not the sort of usage Brown's investors are hoping to see. Brown is a midrange WR2 this week.

Mark Andrews Note

Andrews has become a Kelce-esque workhorse for the Ravens. He was targeted 10 times last week against the Browns, finishing with 4-65-1. Andrews is second among tight ends in targets (89), receptions (60) and receiving yards (761), trailing Travis Kelce in all three categories. Andrews is the TE2 this week behind only - you guessed it - Kelce.

Devonta Freeman Note

Freeman only out-snapped Latavius Murray 40-36 in Week 13, but Freeman had a 16-8 advantage in carries and is the only Baltimore running back worth rostering for fantasy. He's had 55-215-1 rushing and 12-66-1 receiving over his last four games, averaging 11.5 half-point PPR fantasy points per game over that stretch. Freeman faces the Steelers this week, and the once-mighty Pittsburgh run defense has gone to seed. The Steelers are giving up 4.8 yards per carry and allowing 20.4 fantasy points per game to running backs. Freeman is a high-end RB3 this week.

Rashod Bateman Note

Bateman played 44% of the Ravens' offensive snaps in Week 12, his lowest snap share of the season. His 60% route participation rate was less than ideal, too. Bateman has generally been involved in the Ravens' passing game, but his involvement hasn't translated into worthwhile fantasy numbers yet. He's averaged 50.2 receiving yards over six games and hasn't scored a touchdown. We should probably take last week's usage reduction as a sign to keep Bateman benched until we see a reason to get him into our lineups. He's a low-end WR3 this week against the Steelers.
