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.McLaurin came out of nowhere as a waiver wire acquisition last year, finishing as the No. 27 wide receiver on a bad offense. It wasn't all pretty, as he had four games with less than 40 yards, but they were going through a lot of changes on the offense. They reportedly tried to acquire Amari Cooper, but after failing to land him, they fell back on Antonio Gandy-Golden in the fourth round of the draft. He's not going to threaten McLaurin's lead role on the team. It's safe to say we should expect 100-plus targets in year two, even if they aren't highly efficient coming from Dwayne Haskins.
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. 
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.McLaurin was a revelation last season for people who drafted him in the last round or scooped him up off of waiver wires in week one. While he does have more competition for targets in 2020, he's the main option in this passing attack and is a guarantee to see over 120 targets. He's a value right now at his current ADP and would be a fantastic addition to your fantasy roster as a WR2/WR3.
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.Scary Terry McLaurin had an incredible debut season with 919 yards and 7 TDs in an awful offence with sub-standard QB play. While Dwayne Haskins is back, you'd have to expect some improvement in his passing while the improved supporting cast should also help McLaurin. Hence weekly floor remains very low, as evidenced by his mid-season run of seven games under 10 fantasy points, but he has week winning upside and is a great Best Ball option. He's a risk/reward WR3 with strong weekly and seasonal upside if the Redskins can finally get their act together in the passing game.
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.Terry McLaurin's 13.7 PPR FPG last year tied for 10th-most all-time with JuJu Smith-Schuster for any rookie WR drafted in the second round or later of the NFL draft. @GrahamBarfield

 Advanced metrics darling and near-backend WR2 producer as rookie was PFF's 6th-highest grade WR in 2019 despite ugly QB combo of Keenum, McCoy, Haskins
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.If you had to guess, who would you say was second on the team in targets? Chris Thompson with 58. He will not be without competition in 2020 but I don't think that has to be a bad thing. Terry saw 6.6 targets with Haskins for 34/500/2 in 8 games. A lot of change in 2020. Scott Turner is the new OC, was co-oc in Carolina where Carolina ranked second in attempts last year. Do bad teams tend to pass more? Probably, the Dolphins and Bengals were 6th and 7th. Will the Redskins be bad? I dunno. Lots of questions.
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.McLaurin was the lone bright spot in the Washington offense with 58 receptions for 919 yards and 7 receiving touchdowns. He should take a jump in his second year, especially if second-year QB Dwayne Haskins can also take a jump in his second year.
