Scouting report

TEN WR A.J. Brown - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
What a rookie season A.J. Brown posted, especially after Ryan Tannehill took over at QB. Despite not playing 70% of the snaps in a game until Week 10, Brown finished with 52 grabs for 1,051 yards and eight TDs. He averaged a whopping 20 yards per catch, eclipsing the century mark in four of the final six regular season contests with five touchdowns during that stretch.

Fantasy Downside
While Brown’s draft stock is trending up in a big way, it’s possible he’ll see more regression than any other WR. His amazing 12.4 yards per target is 25% better than the all-time career mark shared by Tyreek Hill and Tyler Lockett, so expect that average to take a dip. Brown scored once every 10.5 targets during the regular season but in the playoffs his target share fell to 15%, which was behind Corey Davis.

Bottom Line
Brown had a huge second half of ’19 and has already become a top-10 fantasy WR. However, Tennessee remains a run-first offense and had great success with that formula last season, so don’t expect to see Ryan Tannehill’s pass numbers to increase much, if any. Brown should again finish with over 1,000 yards and lead his team in receptions but look for him to receive all kinds of attention from defensive coordinators.

TEN WR A.J. Brown - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Houston Texans
A.J. Brown was held to one catch for 34 yards on two targets last week against the Saints, getting all kinds of attention. That could happen again this week, especially if Corey Davis and Adam Humphries miss this game. Keep an eye on their status. Brown did have eight catches for 114 yards and a score against the Texans two weeks ago on 13 targets, so there's some hope. Look for a game somewhere in the middle of where he's been the past two weeks, making him a WR2 play.

TEN WR A.J. Brown - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 vs. New Orleans Saints
A.J. Brown got a career-high 13 targets last week, turning them into eight catches for 113 yards and a touchdown as he's clearly emerged as the top target in the Tennessee offense. He'll draw Marshon Lattimore this week, but given his target volume, Brown remains a solid WR2 option. Overall, the Saints are just middle of the pack against opposing receivers.

TEN WR A.J. Brown - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 vs. Houston Texans
A.J. Brown continued his every other week production, catching five passes for 153 yards and two touchdowns. This followed a week of three catches for 45 yards, which followed a week of 4-135-1. You get the idea. Brown doesn't get a lot of volume, but he's shown the ability to make the most of them. This is a good matchup and Brown is a solid WR3 play with upside potential. Maybe it's time for back-to-back big games.

TEN WR A.J. Brown - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 at Oakland Raiders
A.J. Brown had three receptions for 45 yards last week on four targets and now has four or fewer targets in seven of 12 games this season. That makes him a volatile start. The Raiders will give up some big plays, and that's Brown's specialty, so there's some hope in this game. Brown, however, is probably more of a flex play in this game due to the Titans' preference to keep things on the ground.

TEN WR A.J. Brown - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 at Indianapolis Colts
A.J. Brown got just five targets last week but turned them into four catches for 135 yards and a touchdown against the Jaguars. He managed just three receptions for 25 yards all the way back in Week 2 against the Colts, so there is some caution here. But that also was with Marcus Mariota at quarterback. He's the receiver to own in the Tennessee offense, but he's also been hot and cold. Use Brown as a WR3 this week and hope he's hot.

TEN WR A.J. Brown - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
What to do with the Titans' passing game? Great one week, non-existent -- sometimes by choice -- the next. A.J. Brown got four targets two weeks ago before the bye against the Chiefs, managing just one catch for 17 yards. It's been an every other week thing for the Titans, so they should be poised for a big passing week, right? Not exactly. The Jaguars are allowing 5.6 yards per carry, which means the Titans could be content to run the ball 40 times. Use Brown as a flex option if necessary.
