Baltimore Ravens: Week 3 Fantasy Football stock report
By Mike Reid
TE – Mark Andrews
Stock: High-end TE1 (Elite upside)
The Ravens have another number one Fantasy Football player, as tight end Mark Andrews has been the top TE through two weeks. I had “Mandrews” as a must start last week vs the Cardinals and he did not disappoint. Jackson hit Andrews time and time again over the middle of the field Sunday for a stat-line of eight receptions, 112-yards and a touchdown. Andrews has two straight 100-yard games and has caught 16 of 17 targets so far. The connection he has with Jackson is on fire right now and will only get stronger as the season goes on.
As of right now there are only three tight ends that you would want over Andrews right now for Fantasy Football: Travis Kelce, George Kittle, and Zach Ertz. Kittle and Ertz though have been underwhelming through two games.
Just like Jackson, anyone that has Andrews either got him really late in drafts or maybe even off waivers before the season. He looks the part of being this year’s George Kittle at the position, giving Fantasy Football owners a top-tier tight end at incredible value. Lock Andrews into your lineups each week and watch the man do work for your Fantasy Football squads.
WR – Marquise “Hollywood” Brown
Stock: High upside WR3
The last of the Baltimore Ravens Fantasy Football triplets is rookie sensation Hollywood Brown. What a first two games for the first round pick. In week one we saw Brown’s ability to score on any particular play. As he went four receptions, 147-yards and two touchdowns. The thing that concerned for Fantasy Football is he only played 14 snaps and five targets; meaning that very efficient weekly output would be very hard to maintain.
In week two though, we saw how the Ravens plan on using Brown for much of the season, just get Hollywood the ball in any way. Hollywood’s snaps jumped up to 51 in week 2 which was the most for any wide receiver on the team. An even bigger jump was Brown’s targets, as he got a whopping 13 of them from Jackson on Sunday. Brown was only able to haul in eight of them for 86 yards, but it is clear to see that he is Jackson’s favorite wide receiver already.
Brown right now sits as the number three Fantasy Football wide receiver through two weeks, with 41.3 Fantasy Football points (.5 PPR). It will be hard for Brown to maintain this success as a WR1 all season, but with his snaps and targets increasing he will have weekly Fantasy Football value. Brown’s big-play ability is an extra added in bonus as he can literally score any time he has the ball. It’s best to view Hollywood as an every week WR3 and flex option, with massive upside on games where he hits a big play or two.
I’ll be back on Friday for the Baltimore Ravens Fantasy Football Preview for the week three game against the Chiefs. There will be Fantasy Football points galore in that match-up. In the meantime, stay locked on Ebony Bird every day for the best of Ravens coverage throughout the season.
