Marlon Brown expects to play Sunday, back in fantasy mix

Rob Carr

The Ravens rookie wide receiver said Wednesday that he expects to play in the team’s Week 6 game against the Packers. We break down the fantasy implications.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Marlon Brown says he will play in the team's Week 6 game against the Green Bay Packers, according to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun. In four games this season, Brown has 14 catches for 150 yards and three touchdowns.

Fantasy impact: Jacoby Jones (knee) is also expected to return to the lineup in Week 6 after he was hurt in the team's season opening game against the Denver Broncos. Jones' return makes the Ravens' production at wide receiver a little tougher to predict beyond the likes of Torrey Smith, as not everyone will get the targets they desire.

That's especially true considering coach John Harbaugh is committed to the ground attack as means of getting the Ravens back on a winning path. With Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce back there, it's easy to see why the coach would want to run the ball as Rice in particular has been a center piece in Baltimore's offense for his entire career.

In Week 6, the Ravens face a Packers defense that gives up the 11th most fantasy points to wide receivers.
