Marlon Brown, WR, Ravens
|WR - #96||BAL||Active||3 years|
2013 Outlook: Super Sleeper (high risk/potential)Last updated on Sep-07-2013 by Ben Standig
Update (9-7): A source tells Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk that Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones suffered a sprained MCL in his right knee during Thursday's loss to the Broncos, and he will miss four-to-six weeks. Jones suffered the injury when a teammate,Brynden Trawick, collided with him as he prepared to field a punt. Jones' right knee hyperextended and he didn't return to the game. Already a low-end receiver option at best, Jones can be released in all leagues where he's a pure WR option. For the second straight week, the TD scoring Brown is a waiver wire option.
Profile: The undrafted wide receiver from Georgia paced the Ravens during preseason with 10 receptions for 169 yards and two touchdowns. Those numbers alone mean squat, especially when the starters played minimal snaps in those games. The difference here is that this unknown target sports a 6-foot-5 frame made for the red zone - and he actually made the final roster. Also, Baltimore's WR2 spot opposite Torrey Smith remains wide open unless you're one of those that believes Jacoby Jones is the guy (Hint, he's not). Though too risky to use in Week 1, Brown makes for an interesting flyer right now.
