The Baltimore Ravens face their toughest matchup of the season in Week 9, and they expect to get a key player back. The Ravens host the New England Patriots, and head coach John Harbaugh said that wide receiver Marquise Brown is on track to return for the game, according to beat writer Jamison Hensley.

Brown has been sidelined since injuring his ankle in Week 5. In the first five games of the season, he had 21 receptions for 326 yards and three touchdowns.

Fantasy football analysis, Ravens WR Marquise Brown

The Patriots defense is dominating in almost every aspect of the game. They are ranked No. 1 in efficiency, and they are giving up the fewest fantasy points to wide receivers among any defense in the league.

Brown is a big play threat when healthy, but this is a tough matchup to justify playing him. If you’re short-handed, so be it, but if you have comparable options, you’ll want to look for the better matchup.
