Marlon Brown injury update: Late addition to injury report should scare fantasy owners

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Marlon Brown popped up on the injury report on Friday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Baltimore Ravens receiver Marlon Brown is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears. He was a late add to the injury report on Friday with a knee injury. While Baltimore has not indicated that he will miss the game, when a team adds a player to the injury report it could spell trouble. That's especially true in Brown's case. He tore his ACL in college and that's a big reason why he slid in the NFL draft this past spring.

After a nice start to the year with Jacoby Jones out of the lineup, Brown has been relatively quiet. He is coming off a one-catch, 10-yard game last week against a vulnerable Cincinnati Bengals secondary.

Fantasy impact: Chances are you weren't going to start Brown this week and this will likely be a deal-breaker for anyone that was on the fence. The Ravens offense has been a joke for much of the season and they haven't cracked 20 points since Week 4. Even if Brown sits, Torrey Smith is the only reliable option in the Ravens' passing game. Brown is barely worth owning in just about all leagues.
