John Brown Fantasy Football News 2019

Bills WR Robert Foster has been working with the backups early in training camp, according to the Buffalo News. The 1st-team offense has featured John Brown and Zay Jones as the outside WRs, with Cole Beasley in the slot. There's obviously plenty of time for Foster to make a move up the depth chart. But until we hear that he's running with the starters, he shouldn't be drafted as more than a late-round flier.

The Bills will be signing WR John Brown for 3 years at $27 million, according to multiple reports. Brown will join Robert Foster and Zay Jones in the top 3. He and Foster look best suited on the outside, with Jones' skills seeming to fit nicely in the slot. Of course, all will deal with the limited accuracy of QB Josh Allen. The move doesn't bode well for Brown's fantasy football consistency. There is upside, however. Allen led all qualifying QBs last year with 19.7% of his pass attempts traveling 20+ yards downfield (according to Pro Football Focus) -- an area in which Brown excels. Allen also ranked just 20th out of 24, however, in deep-ball accuracy (36.5%).

Ravens WR John Brown (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Browns. He’s totaled just 7 catches in 6 games since QB Lamar Jackson took over.

Ravens WR John Brown (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Browns. He got in a full practice on Friday and should play. Brown, of course, has fallen off the fantasy radar since QB Lamar Jackson took over.

The forecast for today's Bills-Ravens game calls for a 100% chance of rain and 15 mph winds with gusts up to 21 mph. This had the makings of a low-scoring, run-heavy game anyways, and this weather only makes that more likely. Try to avoid the Bills passing game. Ravens WRs Michael Crabtree and John Brown are still fine WR3s.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh lauded WR John Brown on Monday. “He has been better than we expected,” Harbaugh said. “Obviously, we’ve had high hopes for him, but [he’s] better than advertised — probably even better than what the tape showed, I would say. He’s been a complete receiver for us.” Brown has been buzzing hard since training camp opened and appears locked in as Baltimore's #2 WR (behind Michael Crabtree). His sickle-cell has gotten in the way over the past couple of years and remains a risk in 2018. But he's enjoyed a healthy offseason so far. “I’m fully healthy, and they’re taking care of me,” Brown said. This guy went for 1,003 yards and 7 scores in a healthy 2015 with the Cardinals. Brown could return a huge profit on his current WR72 ADP.

The Ravens have signed WR Willie Snead to a 2-year, $7 million deal that could climb to $10.4 million via incentives. The Saints had the option to match the offer but declined. Snead fell out of favor in New Orleans last year but tallied 141 catches for 1,879 yards across 2015 and 2016. He'll turn just 26 in October, putting him in the prime of his career. Snead joins a remade Ravens WR corps that also features Michael Crabtree and Brown. Snead and Brown figure to battle for the 2nd spot on the totem pole.

The Ravens have reached a 1-year, $5 million deal with former Cardinals WR John Brown, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. This looks like a solid shot for Baltimore to take. Brown's heading into just his age-28 season and enjoyed a promising start to his career before lower-body injuries and his sickle-cell trait derailed the past 2 seasons. A healthy Brown could take over for free-agent Mike Wallace, who excels at getting deep. Brown even arguably brings more upside on short-range stuff. We'll see what else Baltimore adds before laying out specific fantasy football expectations. At the moment, though, Brown's fine as a WR5 with upside in early best-ball drafting.

Cardinals WR John Brown (toe) is out for this weekend’s game against the Titans. Larry Fitzgerald remains the only Arizona WR that should be in fantasy lineups.

Cardinals WR John Brown (toe) is out for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars. He could miss multiple games with his turf toe. WRs Jaron Brown, J.J. Nelson and Chad Williams could see expanded roles, but none can be trusted in fantasy lineups — even with CB Jalen Ramsey expected to sit with a hand injury.

Cardinals WR John Brown has been diagnosed with turf toe, HC Bruce Arian said Monday. That's a tough injury that usually costs skill-position guys multiple weeks.

Cardinals WR John Brown (quad) is active for today’s game against the 49ers. We heard this morning that he’s still not at 100%, though, and will be on a snap count. Brown can’t be trusted in Week 4 fantasy lineups. His return makes WR J.J. Nelson tougher to trust — although he retains plenty of upside in this plus matchup.

Cardinals WR John Brown (quad) is expected to play against the 49ers today, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "But he's not 100%," Rapoport adds. "Figure he'll be on a pitch count until he's back to himself." Brown can't be trusted in Week 4 fantasy lineups, but his return is a boost for QB Carson Palmer.

He could be on a snap count, though, and can’t be trusted in Week 4 fantasy lineups. Brown’s return also dings WR J.J. Nelson — although this matchup remains excellent.
