Brown snared four of his seven targets for 87 yards during Saturday's 17-3 divisional-round loss to the Bills. Brown was the only perimeter target who posed much of a threat to Buffalo, as the second-year man was the lone Ravens wideout to exceed 25 receiving yards on the night. Tyler Huntley nearly found Brown for an explosive fourth-down gain in the fourth quarter after the receiver slipped past Tre'Davious White in coverage. However, the ball sailed over Brown's outstretched hands, leaving him with a total of one catch for 29 yards following Lamar Jackson's (concussion) late third-quarter exit. Brown remained somewhat of a boom-bust fantasy asset in the 2020 regular season, with six performances of 75-plus receiving yards but five others of 25 or fewer yards. Eight receiving TDs buoyed Brown's value, bringing him to a total of 15 scores through his first two NFL seasons.
Brown caught seven of nine targets for 109 yards in Sunday's 20-13 wild-card win over the Titans. He also rushed twice for 19 yards. Per Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun, Brown had to leave Sunday's game briefly due to cramps, but the wideout still led the Ravens in all major receiving categories, bringing his usual element of speed to the team's passing game. In fact, his yardage total marked his highest of the campaign, as did his nine total touches. After finishing the regular season with six touchdowns in his last six games, Brown kept his momentum going without scoring Sunday. He figures to remain one of Baltimore's most important playmakers as the team now turns its focus to the AFC divisional round.
Brown recorded five receptions on eight targets for 41 yards and two touchdowns in Week 17 against the Bengals. While it wasn't a massive stat line, Brown managed to deliver two touchdowns. That effort concluded a strong finish to the season for Brown, as he found the end zone six times in as many games. While his campaign was tumultuous due to drops and inconsistent target volume, he still took a significant step forward from his rookie campaign, increasing his targets, receptions, yards and touchdowns. Brown will have the chance to take another step forward in his third season, but for now his focus will remain on a playoff matchup against the Titans.
Brown brought in all four of his targets for 25 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' 27-13 win over the Giants on Sunday. The speedster opened the scoring on the day with a six-yard end-zone grab in the first quarter, his fourth touchdown in the last five games. After a difficult four-game stretch between Weeks 8 and 11, when he generated an anemic 6-55-1 line, Brown has rebounded to record 21 receptions for 297 yards and four scores in his last five games. He'll look to stay hot to close out the season in a Week 17 battle versus the Bengals.
Brown (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Giants. Brown missed practice Thursday due to the knee issue, but he returned to full activity Friday to take a questionable designation into the weekend. With Brown experiencing no setbacks heading into Sunday, he should be able to take on a normal snap load as the Ravens' No. 1 receiver. Brown has reached the end zone in three of his last four outings while racking up 17 receptions for 272 yards over that stretch.
