Arthur Brown: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Brown is tentatively expected to make his first career start, with Josh Bynes sidelined by an infected finger. The Ravens could also turn to Jameel McClain, who was activated to the 53-man roster Saturday, after dealing with a spinal cord contusion for 10 months. While he isn't in Brown's class as an athlete, McClain has 45 career starts to his name, and is entirely familiar with his role in the defense. Most fantasy owners can take a wait-and-see approach with Brown, as he isn't a valuable commodity outside of dynasty leagues.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
It takes a leap of faith to expect a rookie to be among the league's tackle leaders, particularly when that rookie fell to the 56th pick, but everything is in place for Brown to be an instant hit. The Ravens lost Ray Lewis (retirement) and Dannell Ellerbe (free agency) in the offseason, and Jameel McClain isn't good enough to keep Brown off the field. Brown is a highly athletic linebacker who identifies plays quickly and pursues with a high motor, and the Ravens should give him all the work he can handle. It's worth noting Brown had a sports hernia this spring, though he should be ready in the early part of training camp.
