Pack to the Future
As a rookie on the Titans, there weren't very high expectations for Brown in 2019. Well, he proved everyone wrong catching 52 passes for 1.051 yards and eight TDs. Now he enters year two with Ryan Tannehill as his QB and could solidify himself as a reliable fantasy WR2.Cooper finally put together a complete season last year in Dallas and has the chance to build on that in 2020. Even with the addition of rookie WR CeeDee Lamb, there will still be plenty of targets for Cooper to remain a WR1.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We all know Brown was a monster over the second half of the season, finishing as the No. 8 wide receiver from Week 7 through Week 16. The issue... he was 47th in targets over that span. That screams regression. While he should progress as a player in his second season, we must anticipate regression with his efficiency. In a run-first offense, Brown should be considered a WR2/3 with upside for more.You won't find a bigger Cooper fan than me, but he may be a tad overrated in the fantasy world. Since arriving in Dallas, he's played 25 games. In those games, he's finished as a WR2 or better in just 11 of them. While it's difficult to find players that hit that mark over 50 percent, you want your WR1 to hit that mark more often than not, which is something Cooper can't say. Now adding CeeDee Lamb to the mix, he may lose some of his target upside, though he didn't have an elite target share to begin with.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Brown was the first wide receiver ever to put up at least 1,000 receiving yards on fewer than 90 targets, but the achievements don't stop there. He was third in yards per route run among wide receivers with at least 50 targets, second in passer rating when targeted, and first in yards per target. And that's to say nothing of the fact that Brown did all of this as a rookie who didn't even play at least 69.4% of the snaps until Week 9. The Titans aren't going to be a pass-heavy offense but Brown should still see an increase in targets, which should offset any decrease in his efficiency. Expect another big year from the wideout. 
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Last season, Ryan Tannehill ranked first in True Throw Value (TTV). A stat created by brotofantasy.com, true throw value measures a QB's efficiency throwing the ball. This certainly played into Brown's absurd efficiency last season, but I am happily doubling down on it. If you take a look at Tannehill's TTV two seasons ago with Miami, he finished 6th for all QBs. So Tannehill's efficiency is no fluke and neither is AJ Brown's skillset.Home 16-game pace: 104 - 1738 - 10. Road 16-game pace: 54 - 640 - 6.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Brown established himself as one of the premier deep threats in the league as a rookie with 52 receptions, 1,051 yards, 20.2 yards per reception, and 8 touchdowns. He is the Titans lead receiver and he should be a WR1 playing with QB Ryan Tannehill.Cooper really did not build on his 2018 season and finished 2019 with 1,195 yards receiving and 8 receiving touchdowns. Cooper is among the most talented receivers in the league and worthy or WR2 value, but he is not consistent enough to be an elite WR1.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Brown's not going to be able to repeat his unsustainable efficiency in 2020, but he could see his target totals go up. Ryan Tannehill trusts him and he's likely to be a fringe WR1 all season long. I'm absolutely comfortable taking Brown at his current ADP as my WR2.Cooper's been a frustrating player to roll out in fantasy lineups over the past few seasons due to his tendency to simply disappear some weeks. This season, he now has to compete with Michael Gallup and CeeDee Lamb for targets, which isn't going to help alleviate those concerns from fantasy players minds. Cooper certainly has the talent to take over and single-handedly deliver you a victory any given week, but his inconsistencies are likely to extend over into this season. Cooper's a risky pick at his current ADP.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
AJ Brown was by far my favourite WR prospect last year but even I didn't expect his enormous late-season breakout. With teams focussed on the Titans' running game, Brown was tremendously efficient, averaging over 20 yards per reception in an extraordinary display of efficiency. That won't happen again. While Brown should see a big jump in targets compared to his 84 last season, I can see massive TD and efficiency regression making him a risky weekly play. He is likely to have a lot of bust weeks and quite a few huge weeks. If you can handle that variance, go for it, I prefer a little more safety outside Best Ball leagues of course, where he's a stud.Amari Cooper was the WR9 in 2019 but boy it didn't feel like it for Cooper owners.

 Can be a frustrating week-to-week rollercoaster ride but his 13.5 Half PPF FAN PPG mark in 25 regular-season games in DAL is Top 12 level production at WR
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
In the final seven games, he earned a solid No. 1 role with 25% of the team's targets and 38% of their air yards; resulting in 622 receiving yards in those games. - He was noticeably absent in the playoffs which scares me a bit. 
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
Started playing 65% of the snaps or more in week 9. From that point: 6.25 targets a game, 30/703/5, with the occasional rush. He was nice enough to make that an 8 game sample so just x2 for fun. Growing into a stud, struggled down the stretch but that encouraging thing is that he was very successful against man coverage. Where he faltered was zone coverage, and I think that's something he'll improve on with his work ethic and as he see's the field better. Former Saints DB, Kenny Vaccaro, is constantly telling AJ, "Mike(Michael Thomas) would still be working right now", really helping to instill a good work ethic on Brown, knowing what it takes to be the best. The problem? PASSING VOLUME. With Tanny under center the Titans averaged 27 attempts per game, they were already 31st overall, that would put them 32nd.Will always be underrated because of his inconsistency IMO. Finished as WR10 on the year with only 119 targets and constantly dealing with injury. If he returns to Dallas he will continue being the alpha. Cobb might get some McCarthy love, Gallup will get some 3rd year leap love, but Cooper will always remain the clear 1 for me. Gallup still struggles with catch consistency and Cobb is a nice slot piece but nothing more, especially for fantasy. Could also be out the door.
