Certainly the best value in my draft at least, when I took him at #12. I'm thankful my leaguemates were scared off by the size/Lamar concerns.

Ravens WR Marquise Brown expressed frustration on Twitter about his usage in the team's offense.

In a since-deleted Twitter post, Brown said "what's the point of having souljas when you never use them."

Uh oh. Civil unrest.

He's got a point about not being used. But that offense is designed to be run-heavy.

He's definitely got a point, but it's the reality of his offense. Unfortunately, a big reciever like snead that can block is going to be more useful for them than a smaller WR like Brown.

He could be unbelievable in the right offense, but I doubt Baltimore goes that direction any time soon.

It could -be- this offense though - if they fulfilled the destiny of making him Tyreek-lite, and put him in motion pre-snap more. They're not doing nearly as much of that right now with him...

A few more jet sweeps and WR screens would surely do the trick for manufacturing him touches. They don't all have to be downfield shots, especially with Lamar's deep ball being off this year.

It could be, but hasn't been. They just aren't manufacturing touches for him at any consistent rate. I hope they do add him in more frequently...i'm a believer that he has the ability to be a stud.

I think it's still a matter of waiting at this point. Baltimore has a tough task overcoming those O-line deficiencies.
