2021 Fantasy Outlook
Brown is fast. We don’t know how fast exactly because he had a broken foot at the 2019 NFL Combine, but he ran a 4.33 40 as a community college player before attending Oklahoma. The problem is he’s also small — 5-9 and listed at 180 pounds before 2020, though he played closer to 165 as a rookie. As such, it’s hard to envision Brown ever getting massive target volume, and last year, despite playing 16 games as the team’s top wideout, he saw only 100 targets. He did have four catches of 40-plus yards and scored eight touchdowns, but Mark Andrews is the primary red-zone target, and with the bigger (6-1, 211) Sammy Watkins also in the fold, we wouldn’t count on a repeat. Moreover, the Ravens used a first-round pick on wideout Rashod Bateman, spreading the distribution of targets in a low-volume passing offense even thinner. Quarterback Lamar Jackson also regressed from his MVP form last year, with star left guard Marshall Yanda retiring and left tackle Ronnie Stanley getting hurt. Stanley should be healthy for the start of the year, but whether defenses figured Jackson out is unclear. Consider Brown more of a DeSean Jackson type — capable of a huge play or game at any time, but not rugged enough for heavy use. Read Past Outlooks

Continues hot start

Brown (ankle) secured six of 10 targets for 113 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 36-35 win over the Chiefs.
ANALYSIS
Brown continued his strong start to the 2021 campaign with his first 100-yard game of the year and his second trip to the end zone. The 24-year-old was nursing a sore ankle during practice this week, but he appeared to be fully healthy when he burned the Chiefs' secondary and caught Lamar Jackson's incredible leaping pass for a touchdown. Hollywood is starting to finally look like the top target for Jackson after a couple of years of inconsistency. He will look to keep that going in a soft matchup against the Lions on Sunday.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
The first receiver taken in the loaded 2019 draft, Brown showed signs of his potential, but health and limited opportunities due to game flow kept him from truly breaking out. His efficiency numbers were merely average - 12.7 YPC, 8.2 YPT - but he had four catches of 40-plus yards on only 71 targets, showcasing his elite deep speed. We don't have a 40 time for Brown, who had a broken foot during the 2019 NFL Combine, but take it from college teammate Baker Mayfield who said Brown had a gear fellow Oklahoma wideout Dede Westbrook (4.39 40) lacked. At 5-9, 170, Brown is small and slight, in the DeSean Jackson mold, but the Ravens somehow targeted him a lot from in close - 13 red-zone targets and six inside the 10 on modest overall volume. Brown had offseason surgery to remove a screw from his foot, but it was far less serious than what he dealt with coming into 2019, i.e., unlike last year he should be full go heading into camp. Tight end Mark Andrews is likely to remain Lamar Jackson's favorite target, but Jackson's arm strength is not in doubt, and Brown should be one of the league's most dangerous deep threats even if his target ceiling is modest.
The first receiver selected in this year's draft, Brown should have a starting job out of the gate for Baltimore, given the lack of competition on the depth chart. At 5-10, 166, but with blistering speed - a foot injury prevented him from running at the combine, but his college quarterback Baker Mayfield said Brown had a gear that Dede Westbrook (4.39 40) lacked - Brown will be the team's home-run threat and should benefit from Lamar Jackson's ability to extend plays. Whether Jackson can scramble to throw rather than simply run remains to be seen, but he had no problem throwing the deep ball in college. Moreover, new offensive coordinator Greg Roman should be more aggressive than his predecessor, Marty Mornhinweg. Brown is also a polished route runner, but his slight frame might limit his target upside - the per-play numbers should be strong, but volume will be the key to Brown's fantasy prospects. Still, with only Willie Snead and a couple tight ends around to handle the underneath stuff, Brown's healthy floor is among the highest in his class.
