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.

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 caught eight passes for 114 yards and one touchdown against the Houston Texans in Week 15. He was targeted 13 times during the game.

Tennessee Titans WR A.J. Brown hauled in five of his seven targets for 153 yards and two touchdowns in Week 14 versus the Oakland Raiders. He also ran for 13 yards on his only carry.
Huddle Up: Brown has been highly volatile all season long, but he has been able to tap into his upside a lot more with Ryan Tannehill at quarterback. His 91-yard touchdown catch early in the second quarter solidified him as a great start this week and showed off his impressive speed for a bigger receiver, while his 16-yard score on a slant later in the half reminded everyone just how hard he is to tackle. Owners should not hesitate to start him in a good matchup in Week 15 versus the Houston Texans.

Tennessee Titans WR A.J. Brown (calf) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 5.
Huddle Up: Brown has had an up-and-down rookie season. After catching four of five targets for 135 yards and a touchdown in Week 12, he caught three passes for just 45 yards last week. Still, he has become much more stable with the quarterback change from Marcus Mariota to Ryan Tannehill, and he can be used as a flex play in the Week 14 matchup against the Oakland Raiders.
