Eagles WR DeVonta Smith led the team in targets (9), receptions (6) and receiving yards (78) in Sunday's win over the Colts. WR A.J. Brown followed not far behind with 5 catches for 60 yards among 7 targets. No other Eagle exceeded 2 targets in the 1st game since TE Dallas Goedert (shoulder) landed on IR. WR Quez Watkins caught the team's only TD pass among 2 catches for 31 yards.

Eagles WRs A.J. Brown (ankle) and DeVonta Smith (knee) are off the final Week 11 injury report. Both guys were limited on Wednesday and Thursday but put in full practices on Friday. They should be ready for their usual roles vs. the Colts this weekend.

Eagles WRs A.J. Brown (ankle) and DeVonta Smith (knee) remained limited in Thursday's practice. Neither guys appears in danger of missing this weekend's game vs. the Colts, but check back tomorrow for Philly's final injury report.

Eagles WR A.J. Brown (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He tweaked that ankle in Monday night's loss to Washington but was able he return. We'll keep an eye on Brown over the next few days, but he should be ready for this weekend's game vs. the Colts. WR DeVonta Smith (knee) was also limited on Wednesday.

Eagles WR A.J. Brown scored for the 3rd straight game in Thursday’s win over Houston. He gained several yards of separation on a beautiful corner route in the end zone. The former Titan added just 4 grabs for 59 yards. But it’s worth noting that Jalen Hurts attempted only 27 passes, while Brown’s target share wasn’t exactly minuscule at 22.2%. On pace for over 1,500 yards, Brown’s status as a fantasy WR1 remains firm.

Eagles WR A.J. Brown racked up 156 yards and 3 TDs on 6 catches in Sunday's 35-13 beatdown of the Steelers. His 11 targets led the team but put Brown just 3 ahead of WR DeVonta Smith, who caught 5 passes for 23 yards. TE Dallas Goedert added 6-64 receiving on 6 looks. No other Eagle topped 2 targets. Philly heads to Houston for another positive matchup Thursday night.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts attempted just 25 passes in Sunday night's win over the Cowboys, completing 15 (60%) for 155 yards and a pair of TDs. He found A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith for the scores. Each wideout caught 5 balls for the game, with Brown tallying 67 yards and Smith 44. TE Dallas Goedert was the only other Eagle to see multiple targets, catching just 2 of his 5 for 22 yards.

Eagles WR A.J. Brown led the team with 95 yards on 5 catches in Sunday's win over the Jaguars. He accounted for 46.6% of QB Jalen Hurts' passing yardage in the contest, while drawing 28% of Hurts' passion attempts. WR DeVonta Smith followed a monster Week 3 by going quiet: 3 catches, 17 yards on 4 targets. TE Dallas Goedert finished 2nd on the team with 6 targets, catching 5 for 72 yards. Miles Sanders (2) and Kenneth Gainwell (1) accounted for the team's only other pass completions.

Eagles WR DeVonta Smith led the team in targets (12), receptions (8) and receiving yards (169) in Sunday's win over the Commanders. He grabbed 1 of Jalen Hurts' 3 TD passes, leaving 1 apiece for WR A.J. Brown and TE Dallas Goedert. Brown checked in 2nd in the other 3 categories, tallying a 5-85-1 receiving line on 10 targets. Goedert managed just 3-26-1 on 4 looks in a game he left briefly with a shin issue. Smith looks like he'll reside much closer to Brown in target share than the opener in Detroit suggested.

Eagles WR A.J. Brown still led the team in targets in Week 2, but his 8 looks merely beat WR DeVonta Smith by 1 and TE Dallas Goedert by 2. Brown caught 5 balls for 69 yards in the easy win over Minnesota. Smith caught all 7 of his targets for 80 yards, while Goedert supplied 5 receptions for a team-high 82 yards. QB Jalen Hurts spread his other 10 pass attempts among 5 teammates. WR Quez Watkins caught the night's only TD pass, a 53-yarder that was 1 of his 2 receptions on 2 targets. Brown's share marked a predictable fall from the heights of Week 1, but he still garnered 25.8% target share vs. Minnesota.

If the opener laid out Philly's passing plan, then WR A.J. Brown will not have any target-volume issues. Instead, he'll be a big problem for his teammates. Brown claimed 13 targets among QB Jalen Hurts' 32 pass attempts in Sunday's win over the Lions, a 40.6% share. That's certainly not a rate we'd bet on continuing. But Brown could lose a quarter of that share and still rank among the league leaders in the category. He caught 10 balls for 155 yards, factoring in at all levels of the passing game. No other Eagle drew more than 4 targets, with TE Dallas Goedert, WR DeVonta Smith and RB Kenneth Gainwell tying for 2nd place. Goedert managed 3 catches for 60 yards. Smith didn't catch a pass. Brown will obviously remain a weekly starter for any fantasy team that drafted him. Goedert looks fine to continue using, as we'd expect at least a slight bump from his Week 1 target share of 12.5%. Smith would be better to bench at least until we see this passing picture develop a little further. Smith did, at least, play 6 more snaps than Brown and run 1 more route vs. Detroit.

9:55pm EDT 4/28/22

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Titans are trading WR A.J. Brown to the Eagles. We'll see about the terms of the deal. The move doesn't look great for Brown. He goes from a Tennessee pass offense he would have dominated to a Philly offense that went even more run-heavy in 2021. Devonta Smith's presence also gives Brown arguably(?) the most talented WR he has played with since hitting the league. We'd bet on the Eagles throwing much more often in 2022. We'll see what the Titans add to an offense that now sports a recovering Robert Woods as its top WR.

Update: NFL Network's Ian Rapport reports that Philadelphia is giving Brown a 4-year, $100 million extension (with $57 million guaranteed).

Ben Arthur of The Tennessean writes that Dez Fitzpatrick might be a “factor” in the WR room moving forward. Tennessee will surely add WR help this offseason. Beyond A.J. Brown (who enters a contract year) and Julio Jones, the Titans have Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, Marcus Johnson, Chester Rogers and Cam Batson slated for free agency next month. Fitzpatrick, a 4th round rookie, struggled in training camp but wasn’t exactly a full-season disappointment, per GM Jon Robinson. “He was at a very low, low, low point in training camp,” Robinson said. “He had zero confidence. It was not good. He kept fighting. Working to get better. Improved his craft as a route runner. Gained some good weight it looked (like) to me. Didn’t look as thin, especially in his upper body. We’re counting on Dez to carve out a role. Whether it’s a fourth receiver, third receiver, starting receiver, I don’t know. It will be up to him how he comes in.” Fitzpatrick checks boxes for size and speed, but we’d be surprised if he slots any higher than 3rd on the Titans WR depth chart. He’s just a late-round flier in early best balls.

Titans WR A.J. Brown (calf) is not listed on the final Week 17 injury report. He missed Thursday’s practice but returned to a full workout on Friday. Brown is safe to get into fantasy lineups for Sunday’s game vs. the Dolphins.

Titans WR A.J. Brown was added to the injury report with a calf and did not practice on Thursday. "All indications are it’s more precautionary than anything and he’s on track to play Sunday," NFL Network's Mike Garafolo tweeted. Brown can stay penciled into Week 17 fantasy lineups for now, but check back tomorrow for another update on his status.
