Summary

John Brown had his most productive season ever as a pro, topping 800 yards for the first time since his second season and 1,000 yards for the first time ever, adding 6 touchdowns to his totals in 2019. He's going to see some of his team-leading targets get drawn away by Stefon Diggs, but not being the best and almost only option will be good as well, since teams won't be able to focus on him. Quarterback Josh Allen improved a bunch in 2019, and having two options he can rely on will help, but he has to continue to improve his accuracy. As that is likely to continue to be a work in progress, we believe this passing offense will stall at times, making Brown a solid addition to your bench but rarely anyone you can plug in on a consistent basis.

Bills | John Brown an elite deep threat (Sat May 23, 12:42 PM) - Buffalo Bills WR John Brown ranks third in the league since 2015 with an average depth of target of 15.9 yards.

Our View: Brown aka 'Smoke' has always been a deep threat who takes the top off the defense. With the addition of Stefon Diggs, that should take some attention away from Brown. He'll continue to be a downfield field-stretching target for QB Josh Allen.
