A.J. Brown, WR, Tennessee Titans
Brown had five receptions for 153 yards and two touchdowns against the Oakland Raiders in Week 14, highlighted by a 91-yard score. He has scored and had at least 135 yards in two of his last three games, and he’s now averaging a robust 20 yards per catch this season. In Ryan Tannehill’s seven starts, Brown has scored, and/or topped 60 yards and topped nine fantasy points (full-point PPR) six times. He’s in line to keep it rolling alongside his quarterback over the next two weeks.
The Houston Texans entered Week 14 allowing the 12th-most fantasy points to wide receivers (Yahoo! 0.5-point PPR), and that standing may improve since the Denver Broncos’s wide receivers didn’t do much against them last Sunday. But it’s still a good matchup for Brown, followed by the New Orleans Saints (ninth-most fantasy points allowed to wide receivers entering Week 14) in Week 16.
Brown is somewhat big play dependent, but Tannehill is airing it out a high level (9.9 yards per attempt). There’s WR2 value here over the rest of the fantasy playoffs, so Brown can no longer be ignored.
