Tennessee Titans wideout A.J. Brown hasn’t played since Week 1 but is expected to return from a knee injury on Tuesday against the Buffalo Bills. The second-year receiver is listed as active for the Week 5 matchup, according to ESPN’s Stephania Bell. Let’s go over what that could mean for the Titansfantasy football outlook.

Fantasy football impact

Tennessee is spread thin out wide, as Corey Davis and Adam Humphries are on the Reserve/Covid-19 list. Brown didn’t have a ton of catches in 2019, but his ability to rack up yards after the catch helped him finish as a stop 10 fantasy wideout in standard leagues as a rookie. He’ll likely have the highest upside of any Titans target and could dominate against a Bills secondary that’s without top cornerback Tre’Davious White. Ryan Tannehill has been very efficient and should get a healthy boost with his best pass catcher available. The Bills have given up the fourth-most passing yard per game (280.2) in the NFL in 2020. Kalif Raymond is also a name to look out for. He tallied 118 receiving yards on three catches in his last game.
