Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Brown is the only Ravens wideout that you should feel comfortable plugging into your lineup this week and he could be in line for a huge game. The Ravens are going to have to throw the ball more than they have the past couple of weeks, which means more opportunity for Brown. He should see 6-8 targets in this game and he always has the potential to find the end zone. He's a solid WR2 start in this shootout matchup.There's always the possibility of Brown hitting that play every single week with Allen's arm strength downfield, but it's hard to trust Brown as anything more than a WR3. This is a tougher matchup than what we've seen the Bills face previously, so expectations need to be managed in this one, but Brown's still worth starting anywhere you've got him.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It felt like we hit the rewind button to 2019 last week when the Ravens receivers totaled just 14 targets during the game. Though six of them went to Brown, they amounted to just five catches for 42 scoreless yards. There are a lot of people who believe that the Chiefs are always ahead and that it leads to a lot of passing attempts for the other team, which means a lot of fantasy points for wide receivers. That's not true. Did you know the Chiefs allowed the fewest yards in the league to wide receivers last year? Will Fuller's 112 yards in Week 1 was just the second time in 18 games they've allowed a 100-yard receiver. Keep in mind there have been 15 wide receivers who've seen at least eight targets during that span. Now, with that being said, they were already down one starting cornerback to suspension, but they were also down another starting cornerback last week, as Charvarius Ward did not play through his fractured hand. There's no guarantee he plays on Monday night. That would mean fourth-round rookie L'Jarius Sneed and last year's sixth-round pick Rashad Fenton would be starting on the perimeter. That duo has allowed 25 receptions for 283 yards and three touchdowns on 43 targets over their short careers. The matchup is better than it typically is. You should trot Brown out there as a low-end WR2 with some upside in a projected shootout.The targets came back down to where we expected them to be with Brown in Week 2, as he saw just six of them, though that was enough to produce 82 yards and a touchdown, though most of that came on a late 46-yard touchdown catch. With Josh Allen dropping back to pass a lot more, it's put Brown on a path to exceed last year's 115 targets, even with Diggs on the roster. On top of that, Diggs will often draw the opponent's top cornerback in coverage, leaving Brown with a better WR/CB matchup. The Rams have Jalen Ramsey and Darious Williams on the perimeter, but we're expecting Ramsey to shadow Diggs, which would leave Brown with Williams. He's only faced 23 career targets, but he's been promising on them, intercepting three passes while allowing one touchdown. He did a great job with Michael Gallup for most of Week 1, and then held his own against the Eagles in Week 2. Brown should be considered a semi-risky WR3/4-type option this week, though it helps that Allen is playing better than ever.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Kansas City is 5th against fantasy wide receivers through 2 games, Brown is a boom / bust deep threat in a game that could turn into a shootout on MNF.
