Brown's 21 markers in 2020-21 were the second time in five years that he topped 20 goals for the season. Six came on special teams.

His special teams prowess makes him a good player to target in most formats, but you might not want to overpay for him in redraft leagues, given that his shooting percentage suggests a possible a regression to the mean.
