Through two games, Brown is saying, "what accuracy issues?" He's now caught 14-of-18 targets from Josh Allen at 13.9 yards a pop. He's reminding everyone of how he was once a top-24 wide receiver in fantasy football on minimal targets, though his 18 targets through two weeks ranks top-20 at the wide receiver position. The Bengals cornerback duo of William Jackson and Dre Kirkpatrick might be the "highlight" of this defense, though that's not saying much right now. Kirkpatrick may be on the decline of his career at this point, as he's allowed 8-of-11 passing for 129 yards and two touchdowns through two weeks, while Jackson is more of a physical cornerback who Brown can beat with finesse. The Bengals play a lot of man coverage, which should help Brown, as Allen seemingly trusts him in one-on-one situations. Brown should remain in lineups as a WR3 until you have a reason not to. The Bengals are not that reason.

John Brown leads Bills in receiving in win

John Brown caught seven of his eight targets for 72 yards in the Bills' Week 2 win over the Giants.

Fantasy Impact

Brown has made it clear that he is the lead dog in the passing attack for the Bills. Brown is off to a hot start in 2019 and is showing no signs of stopping. Brown may have some volatility due to the inaccurate nature of his quarterback, but should be in the conversation every week as a WR3/Flex option at worst.
