2019 RTSports Outlook

The Titans added Brown in the second round of this year's draft. Brown has a chance to play a big role his rookie year, being anything from a No. 2 to 4 receiver for the Titans. Brown is good at getting in and out of his breaks. He runs solid routes and can do well on the outside and the slot. He will struggle some at press coverage and get pushed around by physical corners.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Brown might be a bigger fantasy factor in a few seasons when there is less competition for playing time. For now, he might be worth a late-round grab but that might even be a stretch. He could get around 40 receptions for 600 yards and three or four touchdowns.

RotoBaller's Outlook

The Titans drafted A.J. Brown in the second round of the 2019 draft to bolster a below-average wide receiver corps. Although they had spent a top-10 pick in 2017 on Corey Davis and recently signed slot-man Adam Humphries, they still had a need at the position. Brown is a versatile WR who primarily played as a big slot in Ole Miss, but showed the ability to play outside at a high level after D.K. Metcalf went down in 2018. Brown is a starter from day-one but faces a fantasy challenge that is not easy to solve, quarterback play. There are still plenty of question marks surrounding Marcus Mariota's ability to support fantasy viable WRs, but that might just be a matter of staying healthy for a full season. The good news is that his backup in 2019, Ryan Tannehill, is competent enough to keep the offense afloat if anything were to pop up. Nevertheless, Brown is a risky fantasy pick this season given the team circumstances. Their new offensive coordinator has never held that position at any level before, therefore we have no clue what the 2019 Titans are going to be. Brown is fine as a flyer pick and should end up as the best WR in the room, but it might not matter if the volume/quality is not there.

Player Notes

Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown has been quiet over the last two games after a two touchdown performance in Week 4. Brown caught two of his four targets in the 16-0 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 6. The Titans continue to have struggles on offense and that has hurt Brown's value. Fantasy owners can't expect much at this point, so Brown should be considered a low-end flex option for next week versus the Chargers.

Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown has quickly ascended as the team's alpha wide receiver in his rookie season. Brown enters Week 6 with 12 receptions for 250 yards and two touchdowns, all while being second in the league in yards per reception. Brown also had a third touchdown called back a week ago due to a questionable penalty. Brown is not a recommended start due to an overall lack of volume, but he does make for a decent upside flier in deeper leagues.

Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown had two receptions for 27 yards during the loss to the Bills. While he almost scored off of a toss from Marcus Mariota early in the fourth quarter, it was called back after officials determined that the veteran quarterback was over the line of scrimmage. Brown currently leads the team with 250 receiving yards on the year and has become one of Mariota's go-to options. He won't produce every week, but he still has a place in fantasy lineups in deeper formats.

Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown delivered in a big way in the team's Week 4 win against the Atlanta Falcons. Brown caught all three of his targets for 94 yards and two touchdowns. That brings his 2019 totals to 10 receptions for 223 yards and two touchdowns. Brown has shown a lot more production than was expected of him this early in his career, displaying great ball skills and playmaking ability after the catch. Although his production will likely be hard to predict week-to-week in this offense, Brown is worth a speculative add in deeper leagues where he is available.

Sep 27 6:20pm ET

Tennessee Titans rookie wide receiver A.J. Brown has cooled off significantly following his 100-yard breakout in Week 1. Since then, Brown has caught just four passes for 29 yards. While Brown is not likely to be a factor for fantasy in 2019, he does provide a nice opportunity to buy low in dynasty formats. Brown was possibly the most talented receiver in the NFL Draft this season, but his situation looks less than ideal at the moment. Should Brown's production continue to dip, he is a solid trade target for rebuilding owners with quarterback Marcus Mariota being a free agent following this season.

Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown (knee) managed to play but caught just one of his five targets for four yards during the loss to the Jaguars on Thursday. To his credit, quarterback Marcus Mariota faced an onslaught from the Jaguars Defense as they recorded nine sacks on the night. As of now, Brown has little value outside of 14-team leagues and shouldn't be relied upon for consistent production until he, along with the rest of the Titans' offense outside of Derrick Henry, can turn things around.

Sep 16 5:10pm ET

Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota (quadriceps) and rookie wide receiver A.J. Brown (knee) are both listed on the Week 3 injury report on Monday. Both players should be able to play on a short week on Thursday against the Jags, but neither are enticing fantasy options. Mariota has gone under 30 pass attempts each of the first two weeks in this run-first option and is a basement-level QB2. Brown is quickly becoming the team's top receiving target behind tight end Delanie Walker. He hit the century mark on three grabs in the season opener but had only 25 yards in Week 2. The 22-year-old is a WR4/5 option for those in deep leagues, but it's hard to put any weight in Tennessee's passing game these days.

Tennessee Titans rookie wide receiver A.J. Brown made a splash in his first career regular season game, catching three of four targets for 100 yards. Brown led all Titans receivers in targets and yards in his debut despite missing the majority of training camp with an injury. Even more impressive, Brown did this without the luxury of a full complement of snaps. While there are other waiver adds to prioritize ahead of Brown this week, the opportunity to act may be gone if he delivers another strong performance next week.

Titans' WR A.J. Brown had 3 receptions for 100 yards but no touchdowns in Sunday's win in Cleveland.

Aug 26 12:20am ET

Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown recorded his first career reception for 10 yards in the team's Week 3 preseason loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Brown, who was selected in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft, is set to be the WR3 for the Titans heading into the regular season behind just Corey Davis and Adam Humphries. While he doesn't warrant a roster spot in redraft formats heading into the season, Brown is a solid buy low candidate in dynasty leagues should the owner be looking for more immediate production.

Tennessee Titans rookie wide receiver A.J. Brown, who was back at practice Sunday for the first time in over two weeks, participated in team drills on Monday. It appears Brown is headed in the right direction following his hamstring injury. The rookie got several reps with the first-team offense, which will be important as he continues to develop chemistry with quarterback Marcus Mariota. Missing the majority of training camp with an injury does not bode well for Brown's potential fantasy impact as a rookie, but his potential in an offense that has lacked receiving talent for many years is sky high going forward.

Aug 5 10:20pm ET

Tennessee Titans rookie wide receiver A.J. Brown is shown on the third-team offense after the release of the team's first unofficial depth chart of training camp on Monday. Brown dealt with a hamstring injury during offseason workouts, and he suffered an undisclosed lower-body injury last week which had him sidelined. The second-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft still has plenty of time to move up the depth chart, but for now he remains useful only in deeper fantasy leagues and long-term keeper formats.

Tennessee Titans rookie wide receiver A.J. Brown left Friday's practice early after slipping on a route in the individual drill period. While it appeared to be an ankle injury, no word has come out of the Titans' camp regarding the status of Brown. This will be a situation worth monitoring going forward, as chemistry for rookie wide receivers and their quarterbacks is hard enough to establish even in the absence of obstacles. If Brown were to miss any significant time, watch for free agent addition Adam Humphries to have an even larger role in the offense early in the season.

Jun 5 1:20pm ET

Tennessee Titans rookie wide receiver A.J. Brown is expected to play the majority of his snaps in 2019 on the outside, even though he showed he could play inside as well at Mississippi in college. Brown, who is 6-foot-1, 226 pounds, was taken with the 51st overall pick of the draft. Not only is he big and physical, but he ran a sub-4.5-second 40-yard dash at the combine and will play opposite of Corey Davis in his first season in the NFL. However, with Davis, Adam Humphries and tight end Delanie Walker ahead of him in the pecking order, Davis could very well struggle for consistent production in a run-first offense in his first season.

Apr 26 9:20pm ET

The Tennessee Titans selected Mississippi wide receiver A.J. Brown with the No. 51 overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft. Brown put up huge numbers at Ole Miss and often breaks tackles for nice gains after the catch. He's extremely athletic -- signed with the Padres out of high school -- and is very fast. There is a lot to like about Brown, and he has the chance to contribute right away in Tennessee's average wide receiver room. However, how much he'll see the ball in a heavy run-first offense will be a big question.
