Summary

Brown exploded onto the scene last year, becoming the first receiver since 1970 with 1,000 or more receiving yards and an average of 20-plus yards per reception. He was also just the fourth rookie since 1970 with at least four touchdown receptions of 50 yards or more. For those who evaluated his college film critically, it came as no surprise to watch Brown catch the ball and then become a dangerous open-field runner who made defenders miss tackles. While the offense remains one that primarily runs the football, Brown is its passing focal point and seems to have great rapport with Ryan Tannehill. Look for his targets to continue to grow this year and for Brown to make his way into the top 15 among fantasy receivers. He was not far off that mark in his rookie year, finishing 21st in stock PPR formats. (April 30)

Latest News

Titans | A.J. Brown in rare company (Wed May 20, 09:27 PM) - Tennessee Titans WR A.J. Brown in 2019 became the first rookie since Hall of Famer Randy Moss (1998) to have a minimum of 50 catches, 1,000 receiving yards and five touchdowns while averaging 17-plus yards per catch, plus four touchdown catches of 50-plus yards, according to Jim Wyatt of the team's website.

Our View: The Titans have something special with the 2019 second-round pick. Brown is also the only NFL rookie since 1970 with 1,000-plus receiving yards and an average of 20-plus yards per reception, and he led the NFL with 605 receiving yards over his final six games of the regular season.

Titans | A.J. Brown working out with teammate (Wed May 20, 07:47 PM) - Tennessee Titans WR A.J. Brown said he has been working out with QB Logan Woodside and catches passes from him two to three times a week. Brown planned to work out with QB Ryan Tannehill this offseason before the restrictions.

Our View: Brown is getting work in with the Titans backup, and he'll get back with Tannehill when restrictions are lifted. The second-year pro should continue to progress as a pro. He just showed us the tip of the iceberg last year as a rookie. This year, Brown could finish as a top-5 fantasy receiver. He was the no.8 fantasy WR last year in standard-scoring leagues.
