John Brown catches one pass in opener for Bills

John Brown caught one of his two targets for 10 yards in the Bills' preseason opener.

Fantasy Impact

Brown enters a tough situation in Buffalo -- despite not having a strong depth chart, he may not even start in 3 WR sets, as Robert Foster, Zay Jones, and Cole Beasley could be the three on the field. Brown is a safe avoid unless it's confirmed he's among the top two on the team.

John Brown to sign with Bills

John Brown and the Bills have reached an agreement on a three-year, $27 million contract.

Fantasy Impact

Brown lands in Buffalo after spending seasons in Arizona and Baltimore. He showed promise in 2018 with the Ravens prior to Lamar Jackson taking over at QB and the focus shifting to the run. He's shown flashes in the NFL, and he could certainly be a high-ceiling, low-floor option in 2019 paired with Josh Allen. However, he'll be competing for targets with the newly signed Cole Beasley along with the returning Robert Foster.

John Brown quiet in playoff loss

John Brown caught two of his three targets for 14 yards in the Ravens' Wild Card round loss to the Chargers.

Fantasy Impact

Brown is headed to free agency after a quiet finish to a season that started with promise. After failing to make much noise in the last few years, Brown doesn't figure to draw immense interest on the open market, and will likely end up as a role player on a new team in 2019. He'll most likely have little appeal for fantasy purposes.

John Brown catches one pass

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver John Brown caught 1-of-3 targets for seven yards in his team's 26-24 win over the Browns in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

Brown finishes his first season as a Raven with 42 catches for 715 yards and five touchdowns. Just seven of those catches came in Lamar Jackson's seven starts. The speedy receiver is an unrestricted free agent this offseason, although he will face off against the Chargers in the Wild Card Round before that.

John Brown expected to play in Week 17

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting Ravens WR Joh Brown (hamstring) is expected to play in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

Despite dealing with a hamstring injury, Brown is expected to play in a must-win season finale with the red-hot Browns. While he's been a blip on the fantasy radar, catching fewer than three passes in every game since Week 8 and scoring only one touchdown in that timespan, Brown does have incentives to ball-out on Sunday. Per Schefter, Brown needs four receptions to reach 45 on the season, which would earn him an additional $100k -- Brown has already earned $300k of his $400k contractual incentive for hauling in 45 receptions in 2018. Brown hung a 4/58/0 stat line on the Browns earlier in the regular season with Joe Flacco under center and the matchup will be there for him to replicate it. It will be up to Lamar Jackson to do his part, however. Despite targeting Brown 28 times since taking over as the Baltimore QB1, Brown has caught fewer than two passes in every game since Week 11.
