Marlon Brown injury update: Neck injury shouldn't impact fantasy value

Patrick McDermott

Marlon Brown missed a little bit of practice on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Ravens receiver Marlon Brown (neck) is listed as probable to face the Bills on Sunday. He missed Wednesday practice, then was a full participant on Thursday and Friday.

After scoring in each of the first two games, Brown cooled off in Week 3 against the Texans. Despite the Texan secondary reeling a bit, he could only muster two catches for six yards on three targets in the win.

The rookie has been getting the majority of the snaps in two-wide sets and should continue to see the field while Jacoby Jones recovers from an MCL sprain. The Bills have a weak secondary and last week the Jets ripped them up in the passing game.

Fantasy impact: It's tough to play a guy coming off such a down week. He's still going to offer upside and should get a few balls down the field for the home run. Brown saw Torrey Smith get targeted a ton, so perhaps the Bills double him and allow the rook to beat them. He's a high-upside WR3 this week.
