Tuesday AM update: Brown is expected to play against the Bills, per Tom Pelissero.

Sunday AM update: The Titans have had a staff member test positive Sunday morning, with Adam Schefter reporting it is a coach. The team has shut down the facility while it speaks to the league about next steps. If you have to make a decision by 1 p.m. and we don’t have an update, your best bet is benching your Titans and Bills.

Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown is officially listed as questionable on the team’s Week 5 injury report. Brown has been dealing with a knee injury, and hasn’t seen the field since the first week of the season. He was able to practice in full with the team on Saturday, and is now expected to play when the Titans host the Bills on Tuesday night.

Fantasy impact: A.J. Brown injury

Brown is Tennessee’s No. 1 wide receiver, and when he’s healthy, he gets plenty of targets from quarterback Ryan Tannehill. This game is likely to be a high-scoring affair too. Adding further to Brown’s fantasy value this week is the loss of wide receiver Corey Davis, who is one of several Titans players to land on the COVID/reserve list after an outbreak swept through their locker room.

You can treat Brown as a WR1 this week; start him with confidence.
