Marquise Brown Injury Update Creates Fantasy Value for Mark Andrews in Week 6 Against Bengals

The Baltimore Ravens' go-to wide receiver in rookie Marquise Brown has been ruled out ahead of the team's Week 6 divisional showdown against the Cincinnati Bengals.

While Brown's absence will likely hurt Baltimore's offense as a whole, it could create some fantasy value for some of the Ravens' other skill-position players, particularly Mark Andrews.

Brown and Andrews are tied for the team lead with 39 targets, so Lamar Jackson could be forced to spread the ball around a little more than we've seen thus far. Andrews has been TE4 in PPR leagues entering Week 6, so a potential uptick in targets could help his fantasy value here.

Andrews has a 23 percent target share, which is the fifth-highest among TEs ahead of Week 6, so expect Baltimore to get him involved early and often.

Willie Snead Fantasy Outlook

As for the Ravens' other receivers, Willie Snead IV is third on the team in targets (16), so he should see a boost in value as well.

Snead is only owned in 7 percent of Yahoo! Fantasy Football leagues, and he could be an interesting waiver wire target if you're in need of a last-minute injury replacement.
