The Browns are just 23rd against fantasy wide receivers and Brown is one of the best big-play wide receivers in the NFL. He should be a safe WR1 at home against the Browns secondary.The Bengals are 30th against fantasy tight ends, but Gesicki has a really low floor if Tua is the starting quarterback this week.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Brown had a tough matchup on paper last week, but he came through for fantasy managers that went with the mantra "start your studs". He's one of the best young wideouts in the game and he belongs in your lineup every single game. This week, he can be viewed as a low-end WR1 against the Browns secondary. 
Mike Tagliere

 It's kind of frustrating playing Gesicki this year, as both Adam Shaheen and Durham Smythe have been thorns in our sides. Those two combined for as many targets (5) as Gesicki last week. On the year, they've combined for five touchdowns, while Gesicki himself has three of them. Gesicki does lead all tight ends with an 11.1-yard average depth of target. Just two other tight ends have an average depth of target over 9.8 yards, so theoretically, his targets should be worth more than the average target to tight ends. The Bengals have faced a tight end target 23.3 percent of the time, which ranks as the fourth-most in the NFL. Those targets have been worthwhile too, as they've allowed a league-high 65.3 yards per game to tight ends. The Bengals are one of four teams in the league who've allowed four 15-plus point performances to tight ends. Even lowering the bar a bit, there have been seven tight ends who've cracked 10.6 PPR points, which is the average number of points it took to finish as a top-12 tight end last year. Even factoring the level of competition they've played, they rank as the eighth-best matchup for tight ends. Gesicki doesn't have the guaranteed targets that most tight ends inside the top-10 do, but he's close. Consider him a low-end TE1 for this week's game who comes with some upside if he gets the end zone targets instead of Shaheen and Smythe.
