Draft note
by John Paulsen
The Bills’ offense is something of a mess, but Brown is ranked where he is because he’s a quality receiver. He had a great sophomore season, posting a 65-1003-7 line for the Cardinals before injuries (and a strange sickle cell issue) set him back. He found a new home in Baltimore, and was on pace for a 61-1,068-7.0 season (midrange WR2 numbers) through nine games, before Lamar Jackson took over as quarterback. Josh Allen’s deep ball accuracy on passes 20+ yards downfield was better than Joe Flacco’s last year, and Allen attempted 59 such passes, the 12th-most in the league, despite only playing in 12 games as a rookie. In other words, Brown’s speed and skillset is a good match for where Allen wants to throw the ball. (Data from Sports Info Solutions.)

BUF WR John Brown - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 vs Cincinnati
His numbers weren't as good as Week 1, but John Brown still had a solid game last Sunday. He was targeted eight times and caught seven passes for 72 yards but was held out of the end zone Week 2.

Brown faces the Bengals who were 11th in aFPA to wide receivers in 2018. We expect his numbers to stay consistent most of the season and occasionally have a big game here and there. He remains the No. 1 target for QB Josh Allen and that carries some fantasy weight,

Start Brown as a solid WR3 for Week 3 in standard leagues and his ranking for PPR is closer to a WR2. He should have good numbers this week in the home debut for Buffalo.
