Jacoby Jones out for 4-6 weeks, Marlon Brown's fantasy value skyrockets

Dustin Bradford

Jacoby Jones has an MCL sprain and will be out 4-6 weeks. We break down the fantasy implications.

Ravens receiver Jacoby Jones (knee) will miss the next 4-6 weeks with a right MCL sprain. He was injured on a punt return in Thursday's game in Denver.

The injury looked bad and he caught some friendly fire from Brynden Trawick. Jones was a huge part of Baltimore's Super Bowl run and the offense didn't look the same without him on the field on Thursday. Marlon Brown replaced Jones' snaps at the flanker spot and he should continue to start while Jones is on the mend.

Brown can fly and he's a big guy at 6'5" coming out of Georgia last season. He had four catches for 65 yards and a score on Thursday.

Fantasy impact: The Ravens had some issues in finding players to catch the ball. Dallas Clark looked as old as his age 34 suggests and Torrey Smith has never really been capable of being an underneath guy. Ray Rice was also busy out of the backfield. The main takeaway is that Marlon Brown is a tremendous pickup. He's worth owning in all standard leagues and could serve as a WR3 against the Browns while Smith gets coverage from Joe Haden.
