Marquise Brown's NFL debut was one of the biggest stories of Week 1, erupting for 147 yards and two touchdowns on only four receptions.

He didn't play many snaps and saw only five targets, pointing to the potential that his fantasy football value could be highly inconsistent this season, but that doesn't take away from the clear upside the speedster offers.

This week's matchup with the Arizona Cardinals should give Brown some help in making this a "boom" week as well.

The Cardinals' offense looked great in Week 1, but their defense did not. Arizona gave up 27 points to the Detroit Lions, and their offense played at the highest pace in the league, suggesting that opponents will likely get a boost in snap count against the Cards.

Like last week, the Ravens are massive favorites in Week 2, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, leaving the door open for efficiency to make up for a potential lack of volume for a player like Brown.

Hollywood isn't someone to put in your lineup if you're looking for a safe, high-floor option. But, if you're going for upside, the rookie has already shown the potential to all-but-single-handedly turn the tide in a fantasy football matchup, and a date with the Cardinals gives him the opportunity to do it again.
