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 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 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.
