Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown has been hampered by injuries all throughout the 2021 season, keeping him out of multiple contests. However, it was confirmed that he will make his triumphant return tonight when the team hosts the red hot San Francisco 49ers on Thursday Night Football.

The Pro Bowl tight end has been out of commission for the last three games due to both chest and knee injury, last appearing in the team’s 22-13 loss to the Houston Texans on November 21. Now that he’s back in the lineup, will he be of much use from a fantasy standpoint?

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Brown returns as the most dynamic playmaker in the Titans’ offense at the moment and with an AFC South division title within reach, they’re going to want to get it to him often. Start Brown.
