Baltimore Ravens DFS Spin
Marquise Brown caught 7-of-9 targets for 109 yards in the Ravens' Wild Card win over the Titans. Brown also got credit for two carries which he turned into 19 yards. Without any egregious drops, Brown looked like the consistent downfield burner Baltimore drafted him to be. He now has at least 90 yards or a touchdown in seven consecutive games. Contributing on a weekly basis has not been Brown's strong suit this year, disappearing from that stat sheet for stretches of games at a time. If he can continue producing in the Divisional Round, he may be able to remove the "bust" from his boom/bust moniker.
Buffalo Bills DFS Spin
Stefon Diggs (oblique) has been removed from the Divisional Round injury report. As has Cole Beasley (knee). The Bills will be at full strength against the Ravens as they look to improve upon what was basically a survive-and-advance Wild Card Round performance. That does not include Josh Allen, who was at his best vs. Indy. He's going to have to hit big plays to Diggs in man coverage against the Ravens' aggressive defense. Diggs has been held below 90 yards one time in his past six games.
