Buffalo intends to sign former Ravens' WR John Brown to a three-year, $27 million deal.
This signing takes some wind out of the sails of Robert Foster, who came on late last year as the Bills' primary deep threat. It's not a terrible landing spot for Brown since he'll be playing with Josh Allen, who has a pretty good deep ball and isn't afraid to take deep shots. Still, the Bills' offense isn't potent enough to support multiple fantasy starters at the receiver position.
BAL WR John Brown - Week 18 Fantasy Football Outlook
Wildcard Round vs. Los Angeles Chargers
John Brown was a viable fantasy option when Joe Flacco was slinging it early in the season, but since Lamar Jackson took over, he’s had only eight receptions in seven starts. He’s not alone, the rest of the starting trio of receivers in Baltimore have only combined for 30 receptions total, as the Ravens have gone to a run-heavy attack. This renders Baltimore receivers nearly worthless. The Chargers allow the fifth-least fantasy points to the wide receiver position this year, further decreasing Brown’s potential. Fantasy owners should look elsewhere.
