WR – Marqusie “Hollywood” Brown (current ranking: WR19)
Pre-season ranking: WR63
The biggest jump from their pre-season ranking to their current has been rookie wide receiver Hollywood Brown. Going into the fantasy draft season Brown was not looked at as a possible contributor this year for fantasy. Other than Odell Beckham Jr, Mike Evans, and Michael Thomas, rookie wide receivers rarely make a big enough impact to be worthy as a fantasy asset. Hollywood is making everyone look wrong on that as he has been really impressive through 4 games. Especially given the fact he missed most of camp and pre-season with an injury.
Brown had a monster game 1 versus Miami and a solid outing against the Cardinals. He has fizzled out the past two weeks a little, but the targets and volume are still there for Brown. Jackson has great chemistry already with Hollywood and he is huge part of the Ravens game plan. Brown is pretty much a DeSean Jackson clone and gives very similar out-puts to what Jackson has done throughout his career. Each week is Brown is a high-upside WR3/flex play. His range of possible fantasy points is anywhere from 5-25 most weeks. He will have some bust games but his boom games will win you some important weeks down the stretch.
TE – Mark Andrews (current ranking: TE3)
Pre-season ranking: TE14
The popular Ravens pre-season pick to have a break-out season was second year tight end Mark Andrews, and the “Mandrews” has delivered on that off-season hype this year so far. Andrews has been Lamar Jackson’s go-to target through 4 games and had stuck his claim to being called an elite fantasy TE. Andrews statistical ranks among tight ends is outstanding. He is 6th in receptions, 5th in yards, 2nd in touchdowns and tied for 1st in 20+ yard receptions. Andrews is doing all this despite a foot injury and only playing 48% of the teams offense snaps so far this year.
If you got Andrews late in your fantasy drafts you roster is probably looking stacked. Andrews is well on his way to a fantasy TE1 finish this season and could very well end up a top 3 TE overall. Andrews is an elite tight end the rest of the season, you just need to set him and watch him rack up the points.
