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 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 at Arizona
John Brown had his first double-digit target game since Week 1 and had season-highs in receptions (8) and receiving yardage (99). He has struggled since the first couple weeks of the season, with injuries and lack of involvement in the offense. But with the offensive explosion by Buffalo's passing game, Brown looked like he did in 2019.

The Cardinals are up next and are ranked 13th in aFPA to wide receivers. Look for another shootout between two of the better young quarterbacks in the NFL.

Brown rates a WR3 or flex for Week 10. Owners are hoping he is back to form, but it might have been just a one-game breakout for the veteran receiver. Let's see if he can be effective two weeks in-a-row before we move him up the fantasy wide receiver rankings.
