Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 5 vs TEN (5 / 5 / 75 / 0 rec)

John Brown had a strong first half against Tennessee before quieting down later in the game. Brown had a good catch in the intermediate area of the field on the first play of the game and then another first down catch for a first down. He also had a strong catch along the sideline on a low ball. Brown came to Buffalo with the reputation as a deep speed threat but has consistently shown the ability to win in the short and intermediate areas of the field through five weeks, with a strong rapport with Josh Allen. Brown will be off next week before facing the Dolphins in week seven.

2019 Week 4 vs NE (11 / 5 / 69 / 0 rec)

John Brown had a solid game against the New England Patriots on Sunday. Brown saw a lot of coverage from Stephon Gilmore and managed to beat him down the perimeter on a third and long reception. Brown had more success in the middle of the field, including a slant and an intermediate crossing route. He had two deeper targets, one an interception in double coverage that should not have been thrown, and a second a deep pass that was overthrown in good coverage. He also had the opportunity to throw a touchdown pass on a trick play, but T.J. Yeldon was unable to make a contested catch on the play. Brown will face the Titans in week five with questions about the health of Josh Allen.

2019 Week 3 vs CIN (5 / 4 / 51 / 0 rec, 1 / 4 / 0 rush)

John Brown had a down day against the Bengals after two strong weeks. Brown caught a ball along the sideline on a scramble drill play for a long third down conversion. He also had a catch on a dig across the middle. He could have had a bigger day on a deep target at the goal line, but the ball was broken up by double coverage. He added a bad drop along the sideline on third down. He will be a critical target next week against the Patriots.

2019 Week 2 vs NYG (8 / 7 / 72 / 0 rec)

John Brown was terrific again for the Buffalo Bills in a win against the New York Giants in week two. Brown consistently made plays including multiple third down conversions to help out Josh Allen. He could have had an enormous fantasy day but was overthrown by Josh Allen on what would have been a wide-open 52-yard touchdown. Brown has been the leading target receiver in both games of the season and has shown a good rapport with Allen. Brown will look to continue his strong play at home against the Bengals in week three.

2019 Week 1 vs NYJ (10 / 7 / 123 / 1 rec)

John Brown was the leading wide receiver in his first game for the Buffalo Bills against the New York Jets in week one. Brown was terrific, consistently separating in coverage, especially running crossing and over routes. Brown drew two targets near the end zone that were both broken up by strong defensive plays but found the end zone on the go-ahead touchdown late in the fourth quarter. The play highlighted the relationship between Josh Allen and Brown, as Allen threw the ball into a contested coverage to Brown, letting him work back inside to catch the ball and break a tackle for a touchdown. Brown's skill set looked like an ideal match for Allen's strengths and that came to fruition in week one. Brown will look to continue his strong play in week two against the New York Giants defense that was carved up by Dak Prescott in week two

Bills | John Brown catches five passes (Sun Oct 6, 04:27 PM) - Buffalo Bills WR John Brown caught all five of his targets for 75 yards against the Tennessee Titans in Week 5.

Our View: Brown benefited from Josh Allen clearing concussion protocol. He has been a high floor PPR option and with a bye week for everyone to rest and a run of Miami, Philadelphia, and Washington up next, he could get hot.
