Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Marquise Brown has cooled off after opening his rookie season with a couple of massive games, and that downward trend will continue in Week 7, as he's been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Brown sat out Week 6 with an ankle injury, and after missing practice all week ahead of Week 7's matchup, it's no surprise to see him sidelined for his second consecutive game.

With Brown out against the Cincinnati Bengals last week, Willie Snead led Ravens' wideouts with five targets, though it was tight end Mark Andrews that led the team with eight.

The first-round NFL Draft pick has averaged 7.8 targets per game in the five contests he's played this season, so look for his absence to once again translate to increased receiving volume for the Ravens' other pass-catchers this week.

This, of course, removes any of Brown's fantasy value in Week 7, but we can still expect him to be relevant again when he does return to full health. Likely to lead the team in targets again, Mark Andrews sits at TE7 in our Week 7 PPR fantasy football rankings.
