A.J. Brown is on his way to superstardom, and he's helping make Ryan Tannehill a ton of money. Since Tannehill took over as the Titans starter Wk 7, Brown has more yards after catch than any other Titan has receiving yards. More than half of Tanny's passing yards have been YAC. @YardsPerGretch

Brown has three touchdowns over the past four weeks and seems like a solid WR2 against a weak Texans pass defense. He does, however, have six games this season with 27 receiving yards or less. He's definitely a risk/reward play, but he has the upside you might need in the fantasy playoffs.

There was some panic surrounding Brown last week when he popped-up on the injury report with a calf issue, though that didn't seem to limit him when he straight-up ran through the Raiders defense for 5/153/2. He and Tannehill have been growing in this offense together, as Brown's promotion into the starting lineup coincided with Tannehill's. In those seven games, he's totaled 38 targets, 25 receptions, 506 yards, and four touchdowns. That amounts to 14.4 PPR points per game, which would rank 26th among wide receivers on the year. His 12.8 yards per target ranks second to only Mecole Hardman among receivers (minimum 15 targets). The Texans have allowed 17 wide receivers to finish as top-36 options against them, including at least one in 10-of-13 games. We all know by now that Brown is the No. 1 option in this offense, right? The Texans did get a boost from the time Gareon Conley joined them at the trade deadline, as he and Johnathan Joseph aren't exactly pushovers in coverage. But they may have to dedicate a lot of resources into stopping Derrick Henry, which could lead to single-man coverage for Brown. His lack of elite targets is what turns us off the must-start button, as he's totaled five or less targets in three of the last four games, but he's playing so well, he's got to be in the high-end WR4 conversation.

The Texans are 19th against fantasy wide receivers this year, Brown is starting to carve out a big role in this offense. He is a WR1 at home in a pivotal division game that could decide the AFC South.

It's about time the Titans start using their best pass-catcher. Brown has been extraordinarily efficient all season and seems to break the first tackle every time he touches the ball. Sometimes, as we saw in Week 14, that leads to a long touchdown reception. He does have some risk from week to week, but considering his great home matchup against the Texans, it is more likely that fantasy owners get a boom week from Brown.
