Brown caught all seven of his targets for 134 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 24-23 loss to New Orleans. Brown put the Ravens in position to tie the game in the closing seconds of the fourth quarter, swinging up the right sideline to settle under a 14-yard Joe Flacco loft pass. A Justin Tucker missed PAT proved to be the difference. Brown entered Sunday with back-to-back off games against the stingy pass defenses of Cleveland and Tennessee. Sunday's performance, however, showed why he's the Baltimore receiver to own as he extended his streak of games with a 20-yard reception to seven. He'll try to extend it to eight next Sunday against a Panthers pass defense ranked 17th in opponent yards per reception at 11.7.
Brown hauled in two of his three targets for 28 yards in the Ravens' 21-0 win over the Titans on Sunday. After drawing a season-high 14 targets in the Week 5 loss to Cleveland, Brown saw his least involvement in the passing game to date in the Ravens' resounding win. Game flow was largely responsible for Brown's lack of work, as Baltimore took an early lead that was never truly threatened while the Titans punted on all nine of their possessions. The Ravens' Week 7 home date against a high-powered Saints offense should prove to be a more competitive battle, so fantasy owners who have been consistently relying on Brown thus far shouldn't hesitate to keep him active again after one down performance.
Brown hauled in just four of 14 targets for 58 yards in Sunday's 12-9 overtime loss to Cleveland. Brown struggled to get on the same page as quarterback Joe Flacco in this one, but he was still Flacco's target of choice on 14 of 56 throws. Between his big-play ability and large target share in Baltimore's offense, Brown should stay in the mainstream fantasy conversation all season long, including the upcoming Week 6 clash with Tennessee.
Brown caught three of seven targets for 116 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 26-14 victory over the Steelers. He also rushed one time for three yards. Brown just keeps on showcasing the strong rapport he has with quarterback Joe Flacco, and the deep threat is now averaging a gaudy 22.5 yards on the 15 receptions he's snagged through four games. With no other player on the Ravens' roster a threat to significantly chip away from his role as the team's preferred target downfield, it's not unreasonable to expect Brown to continue his uber-efficient ways while sharing looks with Michael Crabtree and Willie Snead. On deck for the four-year pro is a Week 5 matchup on the road against Cleveland.
Brown (not injury-related) was a full participant in Thursday's practice. After sitting out of Wednesday's practice for a non-injury-related issue, Brown was back in action as a full participant Thursday. Brown is second on the team in target share at 18 percent but has the team lead in receiving yards at 222 -- 67 more than Michael Crabtree. He'll face a Steelers secondary that allows the second-most points to opposing receivers (34.8) in Week 4.
