Baltimore Ravens rookie wide receiver Marquise Brown was questionable all week due to an ankle injury, but he's been ruled active against the Houston Texans in Week 11.

His status was up in the air after the ankle injury kept him out of practice on Thursday, but he logged limited reps on Friday, and the electric wide receiver has been deemed good to go for this big AFC matchup.

The rookie has been a big play threat for Lamar Jackson and the Ravens this season. He's averaging 16.2 yards per reception this season, which is the 13th-best mark in the NFL.

Last week, he caught all four of his targets for 80 yards and a touchdown. He faces a positive matchup this week, as the Texans defense gives up the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing wideouts.

Brown also has one of the better individual matchups of the week, having a 23 percent advantage over Jonathan Joseph, according to Pro Football Focus. He can be inconsistent, but Brown has a really high ceiling, making him a boom-or-bust start this week.

He enters Week 11 as the 24th-ranked wide receiver in our fantasy football PPR rankings.
