A.J. Brown was a bit overlooked early on in his rookie season. Many were excited about his potential, but when the Titans drafted him he was widely panned as a rookie prospect. The thinking was that the Titans just don't throw the ball enough to support a stud wide receiver, plus he would be behind Corey Davis in the pecking order.

Sometimes you just have to bet on talent. It was obvious in Brown's college tape that he possesses an incredible mix of speed, strength, and run-after-the-catch ability. He is also a very good route runner, and can run routes out wide and from the slot effectively. He showed all of that and more as a rookie, producing on limited opportunities.

He surpassed Davis as the team's No.1 option en route to 52 receptions for 1,051 yards and 8 touchdowns! That equated to 20.2 yards per reception, showing off his ability to catch the deep ball and his incredible skill in the open field. If he takes another step in the offense and receives 120 targets, he could produce as a top-five fantasy receiver due to how many yards he is likely to rack up after the catch. The fact that defenses have to "stay home" to account for Derrick Henry only opens things up more for Brown.

Brown played significantly fewer snaps than Davis through Week 7, but from Week 8 on he played 99 more than the veteran. It is clear the coaching staff now sees him as their top option in the passing game, so it is reasonable to project him to take over as the clear-cut target leader in the offense.

The biggest risk or downside to picking Brown in the early rounds of fantasy drafts is that the Titans are not a high-volume passing offense like the Falcons, so his opportunities will be limited in comparison with some other receivers. If there is one receiver to bet on despite limited opportunities, it is probably Brown.

Injury A.J. Brown misses another practice
Suffered ankle injury in Week 13
By: Doug Orth | Thu Dec 10, 11:30 pm

Tennessee Titans

FFToday's Take: On the plus side, Brown returned to the game in Week 13 after suffering his ankle injury. On the negative side, fantasy owners may be forced to decide if he can be effective - much less play the whole game - without practicing this week if he sits again on Friday. It would be a shame if he can't play with the Jaguars' awful pass defense next up. Corey Davis is a strong start either way, but he could push for WR1 production if Brown can't go.


Injury A.J. Brown sits out practice Thursday
Hip injury

FFToday's Take: The news here is not so much that Brown missed a Thursday practice - this is the third straight Thursday he hasn't practiced - but that he is on the injury report with a hip injury as opposed to the previous knee injury. There doesn't seem to be much concern yet for his Week 13 status, but it is definitely something to monitor. Assuming he is good to go, Brown should be a solid WR2 play against a Browns secondary that looks like it will be without Denzel Ward.
