Marquise Brown Injury Update Hurts Week 11 Fantasy Outlook Against Texans

Marquise Brown has been hit or miss from a fantasy perspective this year. His ceiling is massive, as evidenced by his 147-yard, 2-touchdown performance in Week 1 against the Miami Dolphins, but his floor is essentially non-existent.

He's already missed two games this season, and Brown has also been held under 50 receiving yards in four of his seven healthy games. Unfortunately, it looks like Brown might've hit another road block, as he didn't practice Thursday due to an ankle injury.

Brown only played 19 snaps against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 10, albeit in a 49-10 blowout, but his lack of playing time compounded with this injury update paints a concerning picture.

If Brown can't suit up, don't expect another Baltimore Ravens' wideout to pick up much of the slack. In the two games without Brown, only one Baltimore WR, Miles Boykin, has cracked 50 yards receiving. In fact, he only managed that due to one 50-yard reception.

While the Ravens' WRs likely won't get much of a boost in value, it's fair to expect Lamar Jackson to funnel a bunch of targets Mark Andrews' way. He saw eight targets in both games with Brown out, averaging 69.0 yards receiving.

It will be important for Brown owners to monitor his status in the next few days, but if he does manage to suit up, he checks in at WR24 in our Week 11 fantasy football PPR rankings.
