Summary

Little-known in the IDP community behind teammate Denzel Perryman, fifth-round rookie Brown emerged as a spark plug and a playmaking force in 2016. He lost 4 games to injury, but over the other 12 averaged 50.0 snaps and 6.7 tackles, chiming in 3.5 sacks, 2 forced fumbles, and 6 passes defensed. That would extrapolate to a borderline LB1 season over 16 games, so IDPers need to take notice of Brown's value potential in a scheme that funnels ballcarriers to the inside. He's a dynamic athlete (a 4.44 40-yard dash) with a starting inside job firmly locked down, and there's no evidence of carryover from his relatively minor 2016 knee injury. He's a stronger fantasy choice than Perryman - and he's often available cheaper. (May 21)
