A.J. Brown Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Fantasy Football News 2021

Most Recent Shark Bites

Titans WR Josh Reynolds (foot) is inactive for today's game vs. the Cardinals. He was set to serve as Tennessee's #3 WR. Reynolds' absence should just mean a few extra targets for WRs A.J. Brown and Julio Jones.

Titans WR A.J. Brown (knee) isn't listed on the final Week 1 injury report. He got Wednesday off but put in full practices on Thursday and Friday. Brown is a WR1 with a huge ceiling in Sunday's plus matchup vs. the Cardinals.

Titans WR A.J. Brown (knee) returned to practice on Thursday. It's confirmation that Wednesday he sat out Wednesday more as a rest day than because of knee trouble. Brown should be good to go for this weekend's dream matchup vs. the Cardinals.

Titans WR A.J. Brown (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. But a source tells insider Doug Kyed that Brown was just getting a rest day. Check back tomorrow for another update, but Brown can stay penciled into fantasy lineups for now.

Titans WR A.J. Brown (knee) returned to practice Tuesday and was "looking A.J. Brown-ish," according to Joe Rexrode of The Athletic. That's good news on the heels of the Adam Schefter report saying only that Tennessee expected Brown to be ready for the regular-season opener. We haven't adjusted our outlook for Brown at all.

Titans WR A.J. Brown has lost some recent practice time to a knee injury, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. We haven't seen further details on the issue, but Schefter reports that Tennessee expects Brown to be ready for the regular season. We'll see about how soon he gets back on the field. It's worth remembering that Brown had "cleanup" procedures on each of his knees in the offseason.

If you're still worrying about Titans WR A.J. Brown's offseason knee surgeries, you can stop now. From The Tennessean's Ben Arthur: "Any concerns about Brown being limited to start training camp because of the knee surgeries were quickly put to rest. He practiced without any bands or braces on his knees and looked dominant throughout practice." Brown is coming off a top 7 finish in fantasy points per game last season and projects as a mid-range WR1 again in 2021.

Titans WR A.J. Brown (knees) will be a "full go" for the start of training camp, according to insider Paul Kuharsky. Brown underwent surgery on both knees early this offseason and was sidelined for spring workouts. But it looks like he'll be at 100% for the start of the 2021 campaign. Brown's ADP is sitting in the early 3rd round of recent FFPC drafts.

Titans WR A.J. Brown missed spring workouts and is still rehabbing after undergoing offseason surgery to both knees. "I am not getting impatient, but excited," Brown said. "I am excited to get back on the field, and get back out there with my teammates, just to be out there again. I have been rehabbing, and I have been taking it slow. And I'll be back out there soon." Details on Brown's injuries and rehab have been scarce. We'll see if he's ready for the start of camp next month or is forced to open on the PUP list.

The Titans have promoted Todd Downing to OC. He replaces Arthur Smith, who took the HC job in Atlanta. Downing spent the past 2 seasons as Tennessee's TEs coach. His only NFL OC experience came back in 2017 with the Raiders, who finished that year 17th in total yards and 23rd in points. The more of Smith's offense Downing can keep in place, the better.

The forecast for tonight's Titans-Packers game calls for temperatures in the low 30s with snow and winds of 10-15 mph with gusts of 25-30 mph. Those are less-than-ideal conditions for the passing games, but we're still expecting plenty of points in this one. The game still has a big 53.5-point over/under. We'd stick with all the regulars from these teams in fantasy lineups.

Titans WR Adam Humphries (concussion) is out for Sunday's game against the Bears. He averaged 5.8 targets in 5 healthy games this season, so his absence opens up a meaningful amount of volume for A.J. Brown, Corey Davis and Jonnu Smith.

The forecast for today's Titans-Bengals game calls for winds of 20-30 mph. That's just past the threshold of when we start to worry about the passing and kicking games. We're lowering our projections for both passing games a tad and would avoid both kickers in this game. Note that the Bengals will be without all 5 of their starting offensive linemen from Week 1 today. Their implied total has sunk from 25.75 to 21.5.

Titans WR Adam Humphries was activated from the COVID list this week. WR Corey Davis has not been and isn’t expected to play vs. the Texans on Sunday. WR A.J. Brown and TE Jonnu Smith should continue to dominate targets for Tennessee.

Buffalo
5:10pm EDT 10/13/20

Titans WR A.J. Brown (knee) is active for tonight’s game against the Bills. He put in a full practice on Saturday, so we’re expecting him to play something close to his usual role tonight. And Brown’s matchup gets a big boost with Bills CB Tre’Davious White out.

As of 12:30 pm ET on Sunday, the Bills-Titans game remains on for Tuesday night. There's still plenty of time for that to change, so you'll need to decide for yourself whether you want to risk leaving Bills and Titans players in your lineups. It'd be nice to at least have backup options available from Monday night's Chargers-Saints game. We've left our full projections in place for Bills and Titans players in the Week 5 Rankings.

The Titans have shut down their facility again after a coach tested positive for COVID on Sunday morning, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. The team had gone a couple days without a positive and seemed on track to play the Bills on Tuesday night. But that's now in serious doubt. We'll continue tracking the situation, but Bills and Titans players should probably be on fantasy benches for now.

Titans WR A.J. Brown (knee) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Bills. He was listed as a full participant on Saturday, so it looks like he'll be back for this one. Pencil Brown into fantasy lineups for now -- and we'll let you know if something changes with his status. Bills top CB Tre'Davious White is questionable with a back injury. His absence would be a big boost to Brown's matchup.

The Titans listed WR A.J. Brown (knee) as a limited participant for the 2nd straight day on Friday. It's only an estimation because the Titans haven't actually been able to practice due to their COVID outbreak. It does seem like Brown is on track to play against the Bills if that game happens on Tuesday. We'll get another update on the wideout tomorrow.

This week's Bills-Titans game has been moved to Tuesday at 6 pm ET, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. That's only if Tennessee has no more positive COVID tests, though. It's unclear what will happen to this game if the Titans have more positives, but we know that it won't be part of Week 5. The good news is that it sounds like we'll know for sure whether we'll have Bills and Titans players available for fantasy lineups this week within the next 24 hours.
