Two seasons in to A.J. Brown's career and one thing is abundantly clear: He's one of the best wide receivers in football. And that goes for Fantasy Football, too, where he should be one of the first 10 wide receivers off the board in all leagues, in either the second or third round. He finished seventh in PPR points per game in 2020, despite just 106 targets. The Titans will never be a pass-first team, but Brown is the undisputed No. 1 option in this passing game and should have no trouble getting to 125-plus targets -- and that might be underselling him, given the Titans' lack of other options. Brown could finish as the No. 1 wide receiver in football, and he's a great building block for any Fantasy team.
Brown (knee) will be a "full go" for the start of training camp next week, Paul Kuharsky of PaulKuharsky.com reports. The 24-year-old underwent surgery on both knees in January and didn't participate in OTAs or June minicamp, but he'll be good to go for the start of training camp. Brown caught 70 of 106 targets for 1,075 yards and 11 touchdowns in 14 games in 2020 while playing through the knee injuries for most of the season, and he could receive a bit less defensive attention this year thanks to the offseason addition of Julio Jones.
Brown (knee) didn't participate in OTAs or June minicamp, but he said it won't be long before he's back on the practice field, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. Brown had surgery on both knees in January and has thus far mostly been limited to rehab work and cardio. It sounds like he could be ready for training camp, where he'll team up with Ryan Tannehill, Derrick Henry and recent addition Julio Jones in a star-studded Tennessee offense. With WR Corey Davis and TE Jonnu Smith both departing this offseason, the Titans presumably expect Brown and Jones to handle a huge share of the targets and receiving production.
Brown (knee) will receive less attention from opposing defenses after the Titans acquired Julio Jones, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports. The Titans had seen a number of pass catchers leave via free agency this offseason, the most notable of which was Corey Davis. Without any proven replacements, Brown was set to see massive volume, but he would also have been the singular focus of opposing defenses. With Jones now in the mix, Brown may see his projected volume decrease, but he also should have more room to operate by avoiding double teams and potentially being matched up against the opposition's second cornerback rather than the first.
Brown revealed on social media Tuesday that he recently underwent surgery on both of his knees, Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com reports. Brown explained the severity of his injuries by revealing that the Titans' medical staff suggested he should be shut down for the year in Week 2. Nevertheless, the second-year receiver battled through the pair of injuries and piled up 70 receptions (106 targets) for 1,075 yards and 11 touchdowns, receiving Pro Bowl honors in the process. According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, Brown should be ready for the 2021 season.
