News: 4 days agoBrown says he's up to 180 pounds, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.
Spin: Brown played around 170 during his final season at Oklahoma and weighed 166 at last year's combine, but he apparently dropped all the way to 157 pounds by the end of his rookie campaign. Lisfranc surgery last January likely played a role, impacting his offseason routine and even his practice participation throughout the season. Brown seems to have made a quick recovery from follow-up surgery to remove a screw from his foot this past winter, as he was back to running routes at full speed during a May workout with Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson. The reigning MVP and coach John Harbaugh both have made it clear they expect big things from their No. 1 wideout in his second pro season.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Baltimore selected Brown in the first round of the 2019 draft and the speedster was immediately slotted in as the team's top wide receiver by default. Brown's boom/bust rookie campaign began with his best game in Week 1 (4-147-2) followed by mixed results (including a pair of missed games) the rest of the way. Brown ended up as the WR46 on the season, thanks to seven touchdowns on 69 targets. His 10.1% TD rate was second highest at the position and certainly unsustainable. Brown is an obvious bet for a boost in targets in his second season as Lamar Jackson's top perimeter target. The 23-year-old is a breakout candidate and a sharp flex target.
