Marlon Brown emerging fantasy option in Ravens passing game

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Ravens receiver Marlon Brown has scored another touchdown in a 14-6 win over the Browns in Week 2. We discuss the fantasy implications.

The Baltimore Ravens weren't really sure who their number two receiver would be coming into the 2013-14 season and it looks like undrafted rookie Marlon Brown may have emerged as that guy. Brown caught four passes for 45 yards and a touchdown in a 14-6 win over the Cleveland Browns in Week 2.

Fantasy impact: Brown's performance on Sunday is an encouraging sign for the Ravens, who desperately need someone to step up and support top pass catcher Torrey Smith. That being said, six targets a game is generally not enough to be considered more than a flex option in deeper fantasy leagues. The Ravens host the Houston Texans in Week 3 and with Torrey Smith most certainly being closely watched, Brown could very well reach the endzone for the third straight game.
