Summary

A liability in recent years, Brown engineered a big on-field turnaround in 2018 and now looks like the Chargers' top linebacker. Fantasy players enjoyed his solid 6.5 tackles per game, and he continued to make the occasional splash play against the pass. Brown isn't the most consistent guy, in reality or in fantasy, but he's a solid LB3 play with real upside. There's a better ceiling in place here than for teammate Denzel Perryman, anyway. (May 20)
