A.J. Brown | Titans WR

A.J. Brown (illness) is questionable for Monday night.

Brown being added the day before the game isn't a great sign, but hopefully he's feeling OK tomorrow and can play against the Bills.

A.J. Brown | Titans WR

A.J. Brown (hamstring) is expected to play in Week 5.

Brown returned to practice on Wednesday, which set him up as a guy likely to return for the Titans this Sunday. Brown missed just one game with his hamstring issue, and you can fire him up as a strong option in fantasy lineups this week.

A.J. Brown | Titans WR

A.J. Brown (hamstring) has officially been ruled out for Week 4.

Brown just injured his hamstring last week and missed most of the game against the Colts, and the Titans aren’t going to push it this early in the season. Tennessee plays the Jaguars in Week 5 then have an extra day for a Monday night matchup in Week 6, so perhaps that’ll be the target return for Brown.

A.J. Brown | Titans WR

A.J. Brown (hamstring) is considered week-to-week, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Brown has a strained hamstring, and we would expect it will knock him out of at least Week 4 (against the Jets) and potentially Week 5 (against the Jaguars) before a hopeful return ahead of huge matchups against the Bills and Chiefs next month. Those with Brown should hold tight, and he's a prime buy-low candidate in leagues where available.

A.J. Brown | Titans WR

A.J. Brown (hamstring) has been ruled out for the rest of today's game.

The Titans are ruling Brown out for the game to start the second half, which is't surprising after he missed almost the entire first half with the hammy issue. Before leaving, Brown had just one carry for three yards and no receptions. Obviously, this is a big disappointment, and hopefully Brown is feeling better soon and doesn't miss much more time after today.

A.J. Brown | Titans WR

A.J. Brown (hamstring) is questionable to return for the Titans.

We were wondering why Brown wasn't in the game, and this is the reason. He's currently on the sideline without his helmet with the Titans back on offense, so this doesn't look great. Hopefully the star receiver is able to get back in the game at some point.

A.J. Brown | Titans WR

A.J. Brown is dealing with a knee injury but expected to be ready for Week 1, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Brown has missed practice time in camp, but hopefully it's more of a precaution than anything else. That said, this news is still notable with the star receiver injuring both knees last season. If nothing else, perhaps Brown's stock will dip some for him to be a great value in the third round of fantasy drafts, and it's worth noting that he's one of the game's toughest players.

A.J. Brown | Titans WR

A.J. Brown apparently had surgery on both knees.

Brown was just on Instagram Live after surgery (and seems a little out of it, which isn't a surprise), and he said that he had surgery on both knees and was told he was supposed to be out for the year in Week 2 but went on to make the Pro Bowl. Brown missed two games while dealing with an injury termed as a "bone bruise" in his knee, but he went on to post 70 receptions for 1,075 yards and 11 touchdowns in 14 games during the regular season and also had a strong outing in the Wild Card Round. Brown is simply a monster of a player, and he'll have overall WR1 upside next season if he's at full health.

A.J. Brown | Titans WR

A.J. Brown (knee) is officially off the Week 6 injury report.

Brown returned to action with a very strong performance on Tuesday night, and he talked reporters today while giving no indication that he would not play this Sunday against the Texans. He’s ready to go despite missing practice time earlier this week.

A.J. Brown | Titans WR

A.J. Brown (knee) officially did not practice today.

This is a slight concern, but remember the Titans are coming off a game from just two nights ago, so perhaps Brown is just getting some rest days. The star receiver did not appear hampered by his knee injury on Tuesday night, but we'll see how he's listed on the final Week 6 injury report tomorrow.

A.J. Brown | Titans WR

A.J. Brown (knee) is officially active for the Titans.

Brown is officially back for the Titans after missing the past two games, and the star receiver won't have to contend with All-Pro cornerback Tre'Davious White, who is inactive for the Bills. You can immediately insert Brown into Week 5 fantasy lineups for Tuesday night.

A.J. Brown | Titans WR

A.J. Brown (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Week 5.

Brown was able to practice fully today, and he's expected to be ready to go for Tuesday night against the Bills. Just try to have a backup plan from the final game of Week 5, but you should be able to include the star second-year receiver in your lineup this week.

A.J. Brown | Titans WR

A.J. Brown (knee) is not expected to miss any more games.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says that Brown would have had a shot to play this week before the Steelers-Titans game was postponed and that the star receiver will play in Week 5. This is great news for Tennessee and fantasy owners, as Brown will only have missed two games with the bone bruise in his knee. He has a tough matchup in Week 5 versus the Bills, but you can get the second-year player back in fantasy lineups when the Titans return to action.

A.J. Brown | Titans WR

A.J. Brown (knee) has officially been ruled out for Sunday.

This is Brown’s second consecutive missed game, but hopefully he’s able to get back on the field for Week 4 versus the Steelers. The doctors apparently have a big say in when they’ll allow Brown back on the field while dealing with the bone bruise in his knee, but there’s some optimism that he’ll be able to play next Sunday.

A.J. Brown | Titans WR

A.J. Brown (knee) officially did not practice today.

If Brown isn't able to hit the practice field tomorrow, he might just be ruled out ahead of the weekend as was the case for Week 2. The final injury report for the week will be out sometime tomorrow.

A.J. Brown | Titans WR

A.J. Brown (knee) officially did not practice today.

It sounds like Brown will be back either this week or the next, but it's apparently going to be up to the doctors when they will allow the superstar receiver to return to the field. We'll continue to track Brown's practice status through the rest of the week.

A.J. Brown | Titans WR

A.J. Brown (knee) is out for Week 2.

Brown could be set to miss multiple games with a bone bruise suffered in the opener, but fantasy owners can at least hope to have him back soon if he's not placed on IR (which would keep him out at least three weeks). The Titans will rely heavily on Derrick Henry and the running game, but Corey Davis is now firmly in FLEX territory for a good matchup against the Jaguars, and Jonnu Smith's role should continue to expand.

A.J. Brown | Titans WR

A.J. Brown (knee) "likely" to be week-to-week, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Schefter says Brown is dealing with a bone bruise in his knee that puts him in jeopardy for Week 2 while also adding that he is "likely" week-to-week, so he covered pretty much everything and it seems Brown's status is currently up in the air. Hopefully Brown can get on the practice field tomorrow with a shot to play on Sunday, but make sure you think about other plans for your Week 2 lineup.

A.J. Brown | Titans WR

A.J. Brown (knee) officially did not practice today.

Brown went from limited yesterday to a non-participant today, so there’s cause for concern regarding his Week 2 status. We’ll let you know how the star receiver is listed on the final injury report of the week when it’s out tomorrow.

A.J. Brown | Titans WR

A.J. Brown eclipses 1,000 receiving yards in Week 17 win.

Brown caught four passes for 124 yards and a touchdown, which came on a 51-yard catch-and-run in the first quarter. Overall, the second-round rookie ends his first regular season with 52 receptions, 1,051 yards, and eight touchdowns, also adding three carries for 60 yards and another score on the ground. Already looking like a legitimate All-Pro talent, Brown averaged 20.2 yards per reception and a whopping 12.5 yards per target this season, and it will be awesome to watch him go against New England's stingy secondary next Saturday night.

A.J. Brown | Titans WR

A.J. Brown dominates again in Week 15.

Brown caught eight-of-13 targets for 114 yards and a touchdown in Tennessee's 24-21 loss. The Texans had no answers for the rookie receiver, who got things started with a 60-yard reception on Tennessee's opening drive and found the end zone on a five-yard score in the second half. Despite just 74 targets on the year, Brown owns a 47/893/7 line and has excellent matchups over the final two weeks (v NO, @ HOU) to finish strong. Fantasy owners need to keep him in lineups.

A.J. Brown | Titans WR

A.J. Brown goes off in win over the Raiders.

Brown caught five-of-seven targets for 153 yards and two touchdowns—both of which were highlight plays that showed the rookie is the total package at receiver. On the first, Brown got behind the defense for a 91-yard touchdown, and then he followed it up with a 16-yard catch-and-run that displayed his power by breaking arm tackles on his way to the end zone. Now averaging 20.0 yards per reception this season, Brown has a real shot at 1,000 yards as a rookie (currently at 779 on just 61 targets). The Titans will get three great matchups to close out the regular season (v HOU, v NO, @ HOU).

A.J. Brown | Titans WR

A.J. Brown scores twice against the Falcons.

Brown caught three passes for 94 yards and two touchdowns in the Titans' Week 5 victory. The first score was a 55-yarder one an in-breaking route, where Brown caught it and turned the opposite direction and turned on the jets to zoom away from Atlanta's defense for the first touchdown of his career. The second was on an 11-yard fade route where he made a nice over-the-shoulder catch by the sideline. Both scores came in the first quarter, and the Titans mostly relied on the running game throughout the rest of the game. The rookie receiver has shown major flashes through four NFL games, and it looks like he had no business going in the second round of this year's draft. His upside might be relatively capped as a rookie in a run-first offense this season, but dynasty owners that have Brown should be thrilled with what he's shown early in his career.

A.J. Brown | Titans WR

A.J. Brown hits 100 yards in NFL debut.

Brown needed just three receptions to gain 100 yards against the Browns, and the second-round rookie’s highlight was a 47-yard reception on highly touted cornerback Denzel Ward. The Ole Miss product also showed his major physicality after the catch, and his pro-ready game is immediately translating to the next level. Brown’s talent makes him worth exploring as a pickup if he’s available on the waiver wire, but keep in mind that the Titans are a run-based offense with a number of weapons to get the ball to.

A.J. Brown | Titans WR

A.J. Brown (hamstring) has returned to practice.

Brown injured his hamstring on the first day of camp and has been out since, but the rookie is back and will hopefully make his debut in Tennessee's second preseason game. The No. 51 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, Brown has the skillset to be an immediate fantasy contributor, but the Titans have plenty of pass-catching options on a run-first offense.

A.J. Brown | Titans WR

A.J. Brown remains out of practice with a hamstring issue.

Brown was injured in his first training camp practice, and Titans head coach Mike Vrabel called him day-to-day. But it's now been over a week since the injury, and the second-round rookie receiver has not returned to the practice field yet. The Titans have a crowded receiving corps that includes former first-round pick Corey Davis and free-agent signing Adam Humphries, so it'll be more difficult for Brown to earn a huge role if he keeps missing time. However, he's a pro-ready receiver, so hopefully he can get on the field soon and earn the trust of his quarterback.

A.J. Brown | Titans WR

Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official website believes expectations should be tempered for A.J. Brown in 2019.

A reader wrote in that he believes Brown can be a 1,000-yard receiver, and Wyatt wrote in response, "while I like Brown a lot myself, I must admit I’m tempering my expectations for him right out of the gate. He’s a rookie, and there will be some growing pains." Wyatt went on to state that the growth of the young receivers with time in the system along with the return of tight Delanie Walker from injury and the free-agent signing of Adam Humphries should get Titans fans excited. Basically, just keep in mind that Brown is going to have to earn his playing time on an offense that does have several weapons. However, if Brown is simply too good to leave off the field, he could certainly have a huge Year 1 role for Tennessee. For what it's worth, we thought Brown (drafted 51st overall) should have been selected early in the first round of this year's draft, and he has a pro-ready game that should transition nicely to the NFL.

A.J. Brown | Titans WR

The Titans have selected Ole Miss wide receiver A.J. Brown with the No. 51 pick (second round) in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Brown is an all-around receiver—and a great athlete overall that could have also chosen a path to professional baseball—that can excel both inside a nd outside, and he’ll fit right into the receiving corps of the Titans. He should offer one of the highest floors in both dynasty and redraft leagues among rookies in 2019. Brown will have 100-reception, 1,000-yard potential in the NFL, but it'd help if the Titans open up their passing game a bit more with Marcus Mariota. You can read our scouting report on Brown in the link below, but we believe he was at least a borderline top-ten overall prospect in this year's class, so this was potentially an awesome value pick for Tennessee.
