Brown hauled in three of his six targets for 51 yards in Sunday's 35-24 loss to the Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game. Brown made an immediate splash, hauling in a 37-yard reception on the second play of the game. However, he was held quiet for the remainder of the contest, concluding his underwhelming postseason. Setting his playoff performance aside, Brown proved to be a dynamic receiver in his rookie campaign and quickly surpassed Corey Davis as the team's top target. He'll look to build on his strong production in his second season as a pro.
Brown hauled in his long target for four yards in the team's playoff win over the Patriots on Saturday. Brown had topped 100 receiving yards in four of his last six contests, but failed to make much impact in the team's playoff win. However, he also wasn't given much opportunity as the team attempted just 15 passes in the contest, limiting the volume for all pass catchers. The Titans will likely need to throw more in a tough matchup against Baltimore in the divisional round of the playoffs, though the Ravens have proven to be a stingy defense throughout the second half of the season.
Brown hauled in four of his eight targets for 124 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 17 win over the Texans. Brown recorded his fourth 100-yard receiving effort in his past six games, launching him past 1,000 yards in his rookie campaign. His impressive late-season surge was highlighted by a number of big plays, and he delivered again in Week 17 by finding the end zone on a 51-yard catch and run early in the first quarter. A key member of the Titans' playoff push, Brown is the clear leader of the team's receiving corps heading into a tough matchup against New England in the wild card round of the playoffs. Looking ahead, Brown will enter his second professional season with massive expectations, looking to build on his 52-reception and eight-touchdown inaugural campaign.
Brown recorded one reception on two targets for 34 yards in the team's Week 16 loss to the Saints. However, he also added one rush for 49 yards and a touchdown. Brown was held in check for the majority of the game by standout cornerback Marshon Lattimore, though he still managed to showcase his big-play ability. Brown found the end zone on the team's second possession after he received a pitch out of the backfield and sliced through the middle of the Saints defense for a 49-yard score. His only other impact in the game came just before the two minute warning in the final quarter, when he made a bobbling 34-yard catch down the left sideline. Though his volume remains inconsistent, Brown has evolved into the team's leading receiver and will look to cap off a strong rookie campaign as the Titans take on the Texans in Week 17.
Brown hauled in eight of 13 targets for 114 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 24-21 loss to the Texans. The Ole Miss product is steadily evolving into an Offensive Rookie of the Year candidate as the season wears on, as he now has seven receiving scores and sits just 107 yards short of the 1,000-yard mark. Brown has been seemingly unstoppable over the past month, specifically, racking up an incredible 111.8 receiving yards per game with four total scores since the Titans' Week 11 bye. He remains a promising fantasy play Week 16, taking on a Saints defense that comes into Monday Night Football as a bottom-10 unit in terms of both receiving yards (2,327) and receiving TDs (16) allowed to opposing wideouts.
