UPDATE: A.J. Brown was mostly uninvolved the remainder of the game and finished the with eight receptions on 13 targets for 114 yards and one touchdown for a total of 25.4 fantasy points.
They say it’s all about peaking at the right time in sports, and for those who drafted A.J. Brown this year, he could not have peaked at a better time. With one half of the fourth quarter remaining in Week 15, Brown has eight receptions on 12 targets for 114 yards and one touchdown. This amounts to 25.4 fantasy points. The Titans currently trail 14-21 in a must win match-up with the Texans, as the AFC South divisional title is on the line.
A.J. Brown has been a break-out star late in the season, with his steady improvement in performance boosted with the shift to starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Brown and Tannehill have showed impressive chemistry, which seems to grow stronger from one week to the next. Brown averages 11.8 fantasy points on the season, however he has averaged 21.5 points per game since the Week 11 Bye.
He has a tough match-up vs. the Saints next week, but is worth WR 2/3 consideration given his large target share and chemistry with his QB. Furthermore, A.J. Brown is a player to keep an eye on as a target for the 2020 season in redraft leagues, especially if the Titans lock up Tannehill with a new contract.
