Player Outlook
Brown is going to be a popular pick, but will the change of scenery to Philadelphia truly make him a No. 1 Fantasy receiver? Last year's Eagles team made a playoff run thanks to its run game, passing the ball a league-low 41% of the time from Week 8 through the end of the regular season. Trading for and giving a boatload of dough to Brown surely doesn't suggest more running is in store for the Eagles, but even if they tip the scales in favor of the pass, questions about Jalen Hurts' accuracy will keep Brown's upside capped. Hurts ranked 17th, 16th and 29th in adjusted completion rate on short, intermediate and deep throws last year, according to Pro Football Focus. By comparison, Brown's former quarterback Ryan Tannehill ranked first, 13th and 23rd. Brown also had a massive target share with the Titans, something that isn't guaranteed with the Eagles considering he'll share looks with DeVonta Smith and Dallas Goedert. Also, Brown has finished as a top-24 Fantasy receiver on a per-game basis once in the past three seasons, and he's missed time with injuries in both 2020 and 2021. It's possible Hurts' accuracy improves and the Eagles give Brown as many receptions as he can handle, but no one should draft him with those expectations. If you're playing it safe, Brown should get drafted as a must-start receiver in Round 3, perhaps closer to the middle of the round and not the beginning.

  • Eagles' A.J. Brown: Not targeted in Philly debut

    Brown was not targeted in Friday's 24-21 preseason loss to the Jets. Brown was on the field for the Eagles' first offensive drive with the first team, though he didn't make it on the stat sheet. This performance is no indication of Brown's involvement once the regular season begins, as he'll lead Philadelphia's receiving corps and has the potential to form a strong duo with second-year wideout DeVonta Smith (groin).

  • Eagles' A.J. Brown: Dominating camp

    Brown has been Jalen Hurts' go-to target through six practices, including a lot of quick passes that allow the receiver to pick up yards after catch, ESPN.com's Tim McManus reports. Nothing less was expected after the Eagles traded away first- and third-round picks then gave Brown a four-year, $100 million extension. He's a threat at every level of the field, finding different ways to use his unusual strength and toughness to beat up on defensive backs. The Eagles also need to make room for second-year WR DeVonta Smith and TE Dallas Goedert, along with a running game that carried the offense late last season, but there's zero question Brown is the favorite to lead the team in targets. The massive contract and long-standing friendship with Hurts don't hurt.

  • Eagles' A.J. Brown: Part of blockbuster trade to Philly

    Brown was traded to the Eagles from the Titans on Thursday for the 18th overall pick and a third-round selection in the 2022 NFL Draft, Dianna Russini of ESPN reports. Philadelphia used one of its first-round picks to move up and select nose tackle Jordan Davis. Then, the team used its other to bolster the skill positions in a big way by securing one of the best young wide receivers in the league in Brown. Now in Philadelphia, Brown stands to lead a promising receiving corps that also features DeVonta Smith, giving quarterback Jalen Hurts a dynamic top two at the position. As part of the deal, Brown will ink a four-year, $100 million extension, with $57 million guaranteed, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

  • Titans' A.J. Brown: In line to skip offseason workouts

    Brown isn't expected to participate in any on-field work during the Titans' offseason program, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. The 2019 second-rounder, who is approaching the final year of his rookie deal with the team, is in line for a lucrative second NFL contract, especially considering some of the big payouts that fellow star wideouts have earned of late. With that in mind, ESPN's Turron Davenport relays that Brown doesn't plan to report for the start of the Titans' voluntary offseason program Monday. Though there's been some speculation that Tennessee might consider trading the 24-year-old, Dianna Russini of ESPN reported earlier this month that GM Jon Robinson is not taking calls from other teams on Brown, with Davenport adding that it's Robinson's stated goal to keep the talented pass catcher around beyond 2022. In 13 games last season, the 6-foot-1, 226-pounder caught 63 of his 105 targets for 869 yards and five TDs.

  • Titans' A.J. Brown: Talking extension with team

    Brown and the Titans have engaged in preliminary extension in the early stages of the offseason, Jim Wyatt of Tennessee's official site reports. Brown is entering the final year of his rookie deal, and the Titans are seemingly eager to come to terms on a long-term deal to ensure he doesn't reach free agency. The wideout has served as a key in the passing offense since being selected in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft, topping 50 receptions and 850 receiving yards in each of his three seasons. Durability has been just about the only knock on Brown, as he has dealt with chest, knee and hamstring issues in the past couple of years. Nevertheless, he should be in line for a lucrative extension given his notable production he's already put up despite not turning 25 years old until June.

  • Titans' A.J. Brown: Big performance in loss

    Brown recorded five receptions on nine targets for 142 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 19-16 divisional-round loss to the Bengals. Brown matched his counterpart Ja'Marr Chase with several explosive plays, highlighted by a one-handed 33-yard touchdown reception late in the third quarter. Prior to that, he also logged catches of 41 and 40 yards to account for the majority of his production. Though the campaign ends in disappointing fashion for the top-seeded team in the AFC, Brown recorded either a touchdown or topped 100 receiving yards in three of his last four games. His overall numbers fell in his third professional season -- in large part due to him missing four games with hamstring and core injuries -- but he appears to be heading into the offseason healthy and will return to being the top receiver in Tennessee in 2022.

  • Titans' A.J. Brown: Helps lock in top seed

    Brown recorded four receptions on six targets for 68 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 28-25 win over the Texans. Brown recorded a 14-yard touchdown -- with most of the yardage coming after the catch -- just before halftime to find the end zone for the fifth time this season. He also posted lengthy receptions of 24 and 16 yards to account for the majority of his production on the day. Brown had a disappointing season that was interrupted by chest and hamstring injuries, though he'll now head into the postseason having scored in two of his final three contests.

  • Titans' A.J. Brown: Quiet against Dolphins

    Brown recorded two receptions for 41 yards on five targets in Sunday's 34-3 win over the Dolphins. Brown's primary problem was a lack of volume, as the Titans jumped out to an early lead, leaving Ryan Tannehill to attempt only 18 passes. However, Brown converted less than half of his targets into catches, and he was held to 50 or fewer yards for the seventh time in 12 games on the campaign. Brown and the Titans could be in for a similar game script in Week 18 with a matchup against the Texans.

  • Titans' A.J. Brown: Cleared for Week 17

    Brown (calf) doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Dolphins after practicing fully Friday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. Brown is thus good to go and on track to see plenty of targets Week 17, regardless of whether fellow wideout Julio Jones (illness) comes off the reserve/COVID-19 list. In the Titans' Week 16 win over the 49ers, Brown racked up 11 receptions for 145 yards and a touchdown on a season-high 16 targets.

  • Titans' A.J. Brown: Back at practice

    Brown (calf) returned to practice Friday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. Meanwhile, the star wideout downplayed the calf issue that led to him sitting out Thursday's session. Friday's final injury report will clarify whether Brown approaches Sunday's game against the Dolphins with an injury designation or not.

  • Titans' A.J. Brown: Added to injury report

    Brown (calf) didn't practice Thursday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. Brown practiced fully Wednesday, but his absence from Thursday's session makes his status for Sunday's game against the Dolphins worth monitoring closely. The Titans can ill-afford to be without Brown this weekend, especially considering that fellow wideouts Julio Jones and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine currently are on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

  • Titans' A.J. Brown: Energizes Tennessee's comeback

    Brown tallied 11 receptions on 16 targets for 145 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 20-17 win over San Francisco. Brown was activated from injured reserve ahead of the game Thursday, and he took the field for the first time since Week 11. He was involved in the offense throughout the contest, though he had recorded only five receptions for 24 yards through the first two quarters. However, he inspired an impressive Titans' comeback in the second half, highlighted by a 42-yard reception late in the third quarter and subsequently an 18-yard touchdown catch to cap the same drive. All told, it was Brown's second double-digit reception performance of the season, and the third time he's topped 100 receiving yards. Though Brown has had his season interrupted by injury, his performance should provide confidence that he will end the campaign in strong form.

  • Titans' A.J. Brown: Activated from IR

    Tennessee activated Brown (chest) from injured reserve ahead of Thursday's game against the 49ers, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. Brown will put an end to a three-game absence as he suits up for the first time Thursday since Week 11. Meanwhile, Julio Jones (hamstring) is free of a Week 16 injury designation, meaning that the Titans -- who head into the contest with a depleted offensive line -- will at least have their top two wideouts available. The presence of Brown and Jones bolsters the offense as a whole, as well as the fantasy prospects of quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

  • Titans' A.J. Brown: On track to play Thursday

    The Titans plan to activate Brown (chest) from IR in advance of Thursday night's game against the 49ers, Nick Shook of NFL.com reports. Brown, who last suited up Week 11, didn't experience any setbacks at practice this week and thus is in line to be officially activated later Thursday, setting the stage for him to play versus San Francisco. With teammate Julio Jones free of a Week 16 injury designation, the Titans are poised to have their top two wideouts available, which should provide the team's offense with a big lift down the stretch.

  • Titans' A.J. Brown: Trending toward playing Thursday

    Tennessee is expected to reinstate Brown (chest) from injured reserve ahead of Thursday's game against the 49ers, barring any setbacks in practice Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Sidelined since suffering a chest injury Week 11, Brown was designated to return from IR on Monday, with the move opening up a 21-day window for the Titans to evaluate him in practice. Based on how Brown has checked out during his first two walk-through sessions, the Titans aren't expected to need the full window to assess his health, and the 24-year-old wideout looks like he may even be ready to play on a short week. If the team plans on having Brown suit up against San Francisco, he won't have to be activated until a few hours prior to Thursday's 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff, so official word on his Week 16 status may not arrive for another day. Brown's return in any capacity Thursday would be a big boon to a decimated Titans pass-catching corps that could be without Julio Jones, who aggravated a hamstring injury in last week's loss to the Steelers.

  • Titans' A.J. Brown: Joins walk-through Tuesday

    Brown (chest) is taking part in Tuesday's walk-through practice session and will have a chance to play in Thursday's game against the 49ers, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. While Brown remains on injured reserve, he's gearing up for a potential Week 16 appearance after the Titans cleared him to practice Monday, opening up a 21-day window for the team to evaluate him for activation. Until he's formally added back to the 53-man roster, Brown won't appear on the Titans' practice reports, making it difficult to get a sense of where he stands in his recovery from the chest injury that kept him out of the team's last three games. In order for Brown to be eligible to play against the 49ers, he'll need to activated by 4 p.m. ET on Thursday.

  • Titans' A.J. Brown: Ready to practice

    Tennessee designated Brown (chest) for return from injured reserve Monday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. The transaction opens up a 21-day window for Brown to be evaluated in practice and makes the wideout eligible to rejoin the 53-man roster as soon as the Titans' Week 16 game against the 49ers on Thursday. If Brown shows enough progress in his recovery from the chest injury during practice this week to put an end to his three-game absence, he immediately should step back in as Tennessee's No. 1 pass catcher. Brown's potential return Thursday would be an especially welcome development after fellow receiver Julio Jones suffered another setback with his hamstring injury in Tennessee's Week 15 loss to Pittsburgh, leaving the latter's availability in question.

  • Titans' A.J. Brown: Lands on injured reserve

    Brown (chest) was placed on injured reserve Saturday. Brown was already ruled out for Sunday's matchup with the Patriots, and he'll now be sidelined for at least two additional games with the chest injury. The Titans have their bye Week 13, so the 24-year-old will have an extra week to recover before being eligible to return Dec. 23 against San Francisco. It's another huge blow to Tennessee's receiving corps, as Brown is joining Julio Jones (hamstring) and Marcus Johnson (hamstring) on IR. Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, Chester Rogers and Dez Fitzpatrick will be the team's top wide receivers for the foreseeable future.

  • Titans' A.J. Brown: Ruled out for Week 12

    Brown (chest) won't play Sunday against the Patriots, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. With Brown unavailable and Julio Jones and Marcus Johnson both on IR with hamstring injuries, Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, Chester Rogers and Dez Fitzpatrick are in line to head the Titans' Week 12 wideout corps. Brown thus will target a potential return to action after the team's bye week, when Tennessee hosts Jacksonville on Sunday, Dec. 12.

  • Titans' A.J. Brown: Not seen on field Friday

    Brown (chest) wasn't spotted at the open portion of Friday's practice, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. If he officially has a DNP next to his name Friday, Brown likely will head into the weekend with at least a questionable tag for Sunday's game at New England. In a receiving corps that already is down Julio Jones (IR/hamstring) and Marcus Johnson (IR/hamstring), the Titans have just Chester Rogers, Nick Westbrook-Ikhine and Dez Fitzpatrick as healthy wide receivers on the active roster.
