Draft note
by John Paulsen
Brown was one of my favorite later-round targets last year. He’s a good route-runner and has explosive speed, and is/was a good match for Josh Allen’s willingness to chuck it downfield. With 72 catches for 1,060 yards and six touchdowns on 115 targets, he finished No. 20 last season and was also No. 20 through the first nine weeks of the 2018 season, before Lamar Jackson took over for Joe Flacco and the Ravens went really run-heavy down the stretch. He once again has top 20 upside, but with the arrival of Stefon Diggs, he’ll need a break or two along the way. Either the passing pie in Buffalo needs to grow--which is a distinct possibility given the Bills’ investment in Diggs--or it needs to be very concentrated, with Diggs and Brown getting the vast majority of the targets. Brown is currently going off the board as a WR4, but he could see his targets drop by 30% (to 80.5) and he could still meet those expectations. Cole Beasley saw 106 targets last year, so I think Brown should be good for 90+ even if Diggs plays a full season.

BUF WR John Brown - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. Kansas City
John Brown has been banged up and didn't play Tuesday night. However, he should be back Monday and resume his role as the No. 2 wide receiver. Brown has posted decent numbers with the exception of one game against the Rams. And with the way the Bills passing game as be playing, he has the potential to put up big numbers on any given day.

Although the matchup doesn't look good on paper as the Chiefs are ranked eighth in aFPA to wide receivers, we expect a shootout with plenty of offense from both teams.

With that said, we recommend you sit Brown for Week 6. Even though he is going to play, he might not be 100% quite yet and QB Josh Allen has looked to Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis the last couple weeks.
