|Baltimore replaced a John Brown with a Marquise Brown, but other than changing the nameplate in the locker, it's going to be hard to tell them apart. Slightly built, but with speed to burn, Marquise Brown was the lightning bolt on the other side of numerous big plays for the Oklahoma Sooners the last few seasons. "Hollywood" gives the Ravens a lid-lifting deep threat that pairs well with Lamar Jackson's cannon of an arm. Defenses who risk stacking the box with too many guys will be susceptible to Brown's explosive potential. While Marquise is a fantastic schematic and strategic fit for this offense, let's tempter our fantasy expectations. This is still a run first (and second) team, and it remains to be seen if Brown can return to form after missing much of the offseason recovering from a foot injury. This is the player, who during Week 9 your opponent will be forced to start, and after doing virtually nothing before or after, will have 3 catches for 110 yards and two touchdowns and directly be responsible for your crushing defeat.

FFToday's Take: The expectation was Brown would be ready for training camp, so the rookie is obviously a bit behind schedule. "Hollywood" suffered the initial injury during the Big 12 Championship game in early December. At 170 pounds, Brown was already a candidate for durability issues and can't afford to have a hitch in his giddy-up. Given the amount of time he has already missed in an offense that will rely on the run, Brown is starting to face long odds of contributing in 2019.
