Game day update: The Ravens prepare to enter Nissan Stadium on a chilly day with minimal wind and no precipitation. It’s a great day for football, and Brown has been on a recent tear. He’s scored six touchdowns over the last six games, averaging nearly seven targets per game. Brown could be in for a decent day against a weak Titans secondary. The O/U for his receiving yards on DraftKings Sportsbook sits at 53.5.

The Baltimore Ravens are getting ready for their Wild Card round matchup in the playoffs, and plenty of fans are still continuing with fantasy football into the postseason. If you’re considering what to do with wide receiver Marquise Brown, let’s take a look at what we can expect from him.

Fantasy Football analysis: Ravens WR Marquise Brown, $5,400

In Week 17’s blowout win over the Cincinnati Bengals, Brown caught five of the eight passes thrown his way for 41 yards, and he helped out fantasy owners with two touchdowns. Brown has had a productive end of the season with Willie Snead out with an ankle injury. It remains to be seen whether Snead will return to the field, but he missed practice on Wednesday.

Brown is the seventh-highest priced wide receiver among those playing on Sunday with a $5,400 price. Touchdowns can be hard to predict, but he has been consistent, scoring in five of the last six games.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

With this price, Brown has a decent amount of value especially against the Tennessee Titans defense that is really struggling to stop anybody right now. Baltimore should have plenty of possessions in what is expected to be a high-scoring game. He’s worth a look in DFS and if you’re in a fantasy league that incentivizes players advancing in the playoffs, the Ravens are expected to advance as 3.5-point favorites.
