Tennessee Titans WR A.J. Brown recorded six receptions of at least 50 yards in 2019. No other receiver in the NFL had more than four receptions of at least 50 yards.
Huddle Up: Brown earned the No. 1 receiver job last season and will be the focal point in the passing game for the Titans. He should be at least a No. 2 fantasy receiver in leagues and will be a weekly starting option.

Tennessee Titans WR A.J. Brown recorded 646 receiving yards on play action passes during the 2019 season, which ranked first in the NFL.
Huddle Up: Brown had a terrific rookie season and will be the main option in the passing game for the Titans in 2020. He should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Tennessee Titans WR A.J. Brown in 2019 became the first rookie since Hall of Famer Randy Moss (1998) to have a minimum of 50 catches, 1,000 receiving yards and five touchdowns while averaging 17-plus yards per catch, plus four touchdown catches of 50-plus yards, according to Jim Wyatt of the team's website. Brown is also the only NFL rookie since 1970 with 1,000-plus receiving yards and an average of 20-plus yards per reception, and he led the NFL with 605 receiving yards over his final six games of the regular season.
Huddle Up: Brown is a prime candidate for regression across the board in 2020 even if his final numbers don't end up reflecting it. There are the usual caveats of defenses making him the primary focus in the passing game and having all season to prepare for him, but there just aren't many receivers capable of averaging 20 yards per catch on a regular basis. Brown is about as good after the catch as any receiver, however, so he should be considered a solid fantasy WR2 with WR1 upside.

Tennessee Titans WR A.J. Brown said he has been working out with QB Logan Woodside and catches passes from him two to three times a week. Brown planned to work out with QB Ryan Tannehill this offseason before the restrictions.
Huddle Up: Brown finished his rookie season with 1,051 yards and eight touchdowns during the regular season but was held to only 64 yards in three playoff games. He will enter the 2020 season as the team's main target in the passing game and has shown a good chemistry with Tannehill. He should be a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Tennessee Titans WR A.J. Brown averaged 8.9 yards after the catch per reception in 2019 - the fifth-best mark among qualified players in the league.

Tennessee Titans WR A.J. Brown caught six of his eight touchdowns in 2019 in the 11 games QB Ryan Tannehill started. Brown had four of his five 100-yard games in that span, averaging at least 15 yards per catch seven times and 20-plus yards per catch four times.
Huddle Up: Brown remained a big-play dependent receiver with Tannehill under center, but the big plays came a lot more often. If Tennessee brings back Tannehill in 2020, Brown will be a high-upside WR3.

Tennessee Titans WR A.J. Brown has practiced returning punts in practice this week, and he could be used in that capacity in the team's wild-card playoff game Saturday, Jan. 4, against the New England Patriots. 'It's something that we're trying to do to expand his role and get A.J. an opportunity to get the football in his hands any way we can,' Titans head coach Mike Vrabel said.
Huddle Up: Smart move as five of Brown's nine touchdowns this season have come on plays on 49 yards or longer -- most of them with Brown doing most of the work after the catch/handoff. Definitely check and see if your fantasy playoff league format credits kick return scores to individual players rather than team defenses/special teams.

Tennessee Titans WR A.J. Brown posted a 34-yard catch on two targets in Week 16 against the New Orleans Saints and he added a 49-yard run for touchdown.
Huddle Up: Brown had shown some big-play ability this season, and he will be a nice WR4 or flex fantasy option heading into the 2020 season with some upside.

Tennessee Titans WR A.J. Brown ranks third in the NFL in yards per route, according to Pro Football Focus, averaging 2.63 yards per route, and his 19.0 yards per catch rank second among players with more than 25 receptions.
Huddle Up: Brown's 893 receiving yards lead all rookies and are enough to put him in the top 25 among all receivers. He's quickly developed into a high-upside WR3, and he could be a future WR1.
