AJ Brown Lands in Iffy Fantasy Spot With Crowded WR Core on Run Heavy Titans

AJ Brown re-wrote the record books while at Ole Miss. Brown picked secondaries apart. A silky smooth route runner with seamless transitions and soft, sure hands, Brown is going to make an immediate impact with the Titans. He provides a much needed go-to chain-moving option to keep the Titans offense flowing. In the fantasy department, however, Brown’s alpha-dog opportunities are likely to be limited.  

Presumably, Brown will enter the season as the No. 2 wide receiver behind top receiver Corey Davis.  Opportunities will be hard to come by as the Titans were a bottom tier passing team in terms of yardage and pass attempts. A large reason for that was due to ineffectiveness and dysfunction across the offense as a whole. The addition of Brown will help the offense stay on the field for longer drives, which should increase Marcus Mariota’s pass attempts.

Brown owns the all-time receiving yardage record (2,984 yards) at Ole Miss.  A YAC machine, Brown is a unique blend of Jarvis Landry and JuJu Smith-Schuster.  The former Rebel is more than capable of turning on the jets and leaving defenders in the dust with that 4.49s 40 speed.  Brown and Davis will likely be the primary between the 20’s receiving options when Derrick Henry isn’t tormenting defensive lines with punishing power runs. While there’s plenty of fantasy potential in this scenario, this was certainly not the ideal landing sport for fantasy production.  As such, his stock isn’t as high with the Titans as it would have been with a team like the 49ers.
