Ravens | Deonte Thompson could have bigger role

Thu, 07 Nov 2013 11:32:27 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Deonte Thompson could see more action with the team moving to more three-wide receiver sets this year. He caught three passes for 24 yards in Week 9 against the Cleveland Browns. "Deonte is a very good route runner. He can run all the routes outside very effectively. So, when you have a route runner, you like to get him the ball and have him make some plays for you. If people are going to play us the way they're playing us right now, you need a route runner outside to make some plays." Opponents are playing to stop the run and leaving a single high safety and man-on-man coverage on the outside. WR Marlon Brown is also seeing more snap; he was on the field for 56 of the team's 73 offensive plays last week. Brown had 15 more snaps than WR Jacoby Jones.

Fantasy Tip: Keep an eye on Thompson in deeper leagues if he starts being targeted more. Brown is probably the better fantasy target right now, as he's been more heavily involved in the offense all season.
