The Tennessee Titans have placed star wide receiver A.J. Brown (chest) on Injured Reserve on Saturday, so he will miss at least the next three games. Fullback Khari Blasingame was activated from IR in a corresponding move. The Titans have been destroyed by injuries at the wide receiver position and have now placed Julio Jones (hamstring), Marcus Johnson (hamstring) and Brown on IR. Tennessee has a bye in Week 13, so the 24-year-old will have an extra week to heal and become eligible to return from IR on Dec. 23 against the San Francisco 49ers. According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Brown's injury is not season-ending. Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, Chester Rogers and rookie Dez Fitzpatrick should see an increase in target share and snaps while Brown is sidelined. Westbrook-Ikhine becomes the Titans de facto WR1 and is worth picking up in deeper formats if you're hurting at the position.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown (chest) has officially been ruled out for the Week 12 contest against the New England Patriots. The Titans will also be missing receivers Julio Jones (hamstring) and Marcus Johnson (hamstring), who are both on Injured Reserve, so Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, Chester Rogers and rookie Dez Fitzpatrick figure to be quarterback Ryan Tannehill's top receivers. Tannehill will become an avoidable QB2 as a result, while the Patriots defense/special teams will be a strong play this weekend. Expect pass-catching back Dontrell Hilliard to also be heavily involved on dump-off passes out of the backfield, making him an RB3/flex worth considering in PPR leagues.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown (chest) missed practice for the second consecutive day on Thursday. Although his recent X-rays came back negative, it still remains very possible that he misses Sunday's game against the Patriots. Julio Jones and Derrick Henry are already out, so Brown's absence would further hurt Tennessee's chances of beating off the red-hot Patriots. If he can't play, fantasy managers should view Nick Westbrook-Ikhine as a low-end WR4.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown (chest) wasn't able to participate in practice on Wednesday. Brown injured his chest in the Week 11 loss to the Houston Texans and didn't return, leaving his availability up in the air for this weekend against the New England Patriots. He still has a chance to practice later this week, but the longer he's absent, the more questionable he'll become for this Sunday. Julio Jones (hamstring) and Marcus Johnson (hamstring) are both on Injured Reserve, so the Titans would be extremely thin at the receiver position if Brown is unable to play in Week 12. Chester Rogers, Nick Westbrook-Ikhine and rookie Dez Fitzpatrick would likely be active in three-receiver sets. That wouldn't bode well for quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown (chest) left Sunday's game early with a chest injury and had X-rays done on his ribs, which came back negative. The third-year wideout will have more tests on Monday, but as of now, it looks like Brown has been able to avoid a serious injury. The Titans can't afford to lose another starting receiver, as they are already down Julio Jones (hamstring) and recently moved on from Josh Reynolds. The offense looked out of sync in Week 11, as they put up just 13 points against the Houston Texans. Brown caught five passes for 48 yards, which is his second straight dud for fantasy managers after being held to one catch for 16 yards in Week 10. Still, if he is on the field, Brown figures to command a significant target share with Jones out of action, which is enough reason to value him as a high-end WR2 with WR1 upside moving forward.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown caught 5-of-9 targets for 48 yards in Sunday's 22-13 loss to the Houston Texans. He briefly exited the game with a chest injury but returned towards the end of the game. Injuries have ravished the Titans at the wide receiver position with Julio Jones (hamstring) on injured reserve and Marcus Johnson, who was ruled out the rest of Sunday's game after sustaining a hamstring injury. The severity of Brown's chest injury is unknown at this time, and he's considered day-to-day. Nick Westbrook-Ikhine would see an uptick in targets if Brown were to miss any time. If active, Brown is a low-end WR2 against a surging New England Patriots defense in Week 12.
For the second time in Sunday's game against the Texans, Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown is questionable to return, this time with a chest injury. The Titans have had a disappointing day, trailing Houston by two scores in the fourth quarter. Brown has five catches for 48 yards. If he doesn't return, the team will likely continue to use Nick Westbrook-Ikhine and Chester Rogers more in the passing game, as well as running back Dontrell Hilliard.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown (finger) is returning to Sunday's game against the Texans after heading to the locker room in the first quarter with a finger injury. With Tennessee's shallow receiving corps, getting Brown back into the game is big for this offense and for quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who would have had to rely on Marcus Johnson and Chester Rogers otherwise.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown (hand) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Texans after getting banged up on the opening drive. He's gone to the locker room. If Brown remains out, Ryan Tannehill will likely look to Chester Rogers and Marcus Johnson more, but neither player has the upside that Brown has. This would be a big loss for the Titans, though this matchup being against the Texans would soften that blow. Keep an eye on this situation.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown will look to bounce back after catching one pass on four targets for 16 yards in the Week 10 win over the New Orleans Saints. Before Week 11, Brown was targeted 40 times over his previous four games. The 24-year-old owns 26% of the team's target shares, 14th overall among all wide receivers. Brown has hauled in 41 receptions for 567 yards and three touchdowns over nine games in 2021. The former second-round pick is a borderline WR1 and should produce in a plus matchup against the Texans in Week 11.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown caught one pass on four targets for 16 yards in Sunday's 23-21 win over the New Orleans Saints. Star cornerback Marshon Lattimore and the Saints defense limited Brown held one catch in Week 10. The 24-year-old has had back-to-back duds after two monster performances in Weeks 7 and 8. He has now hauled in 41 catches for 567 yards and three touchdowns over eight games in 2021. Brown will look to bounce back in a favorable matchup against the Houston Texans in Week 11.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown (knee) returned to a full practice on Thursday after he was limited on Wednesday. Brown was listed as questionable heading into Week 9, but he was active and was targeted 11 times in the Sunday night win over the Los Angeles Rams. The 24-year-old only caught five of those 11 targets for a disappointing 42 yards, but he has a nice bounce-back spot in Week 10 against a New Orleans Saints defense that has allowed the most fantasy points per game (36.6) to wide receivers in the last three weeks of action. Brown is the unquestioned top target for quarterback Ryan Tannehill and is a must-start in fantasy.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown (knee) was listed as limited during the team's light practice on Wednesday. Brown has been managing a knee issue of late, but he played in the Week 9 win over the Los Angeles Rams and caught five of his 11 targets for 42 yards on Sunday night. As long as the 24-year-old doesn't have any setbacks the rest of the week, he should be good to go to play in the Week 10 meeting with the New Orleans Saints. It was disappointing that Brown didn't do more damage with his 11 Week 9 targets, but he was also facing coverage from standout cornerback Jalen Ramsey. Brown should do much better this Sunday against a New Orleans defense that is allowing the third-most fantasy points per game to WRs this season. He's a must-start in fantasy lineups.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown caught 5-of-11 targets for 42 yards in Sunday's 28-16 win over the Los Angeles Rams. The 24-year-old was questionable heading in Sunday's game with a knee injury but played through it and led the Titans in targets and receiving yards. After three straight monster performances, Brown was held under 50 yards receiving for the first time since Week 5. The former second-round pick has hauled in 40 receptions for 551 yards and three touchdowns over eight games in 2021. With star Derrick Henry (foot) out for the next 6-to-8 weeks, Brown should see increased usage in the offense and remains a top 10-12 fantasy wide receiver moving forward. The Mississippi product is a surefire WR1 against the New Orleans Saints in Week 10.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown (knee) is officially active for Sunday Night Football against the Rams. Brown was bothered by a knee issue throughout the week that resulted in the 24-year-old missing practice on Friday. Nonetheless, the former second-round pick should get plenty of work with the team down Derrick Henry (foot), although Jalen Ramsey (knee), who is also playing, could make things challenging. Still, he should be starting in all fantasy setups in Week 9, despite the tough matchup.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown (knee) "should be fine" for Sunday's game against the Rams, per Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. Brown missed practice on Friday, prompting the team to list him as questionable heading into the weekend. The 24-year-old has been fantastic as of late, catching 25 passes for 379 yards and two touchdowns over the last three weeks. With that said, a Week 9 matchup against Jalen Ramsey complicates matters. Cautiously approach Brown as a low-end WR1 this Sunday.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown (knee) popped up on the team's Week 9 injury report after not practicing on Friday, and he's officially questionable to play on Sunday night against the Los Angeles Rams. This is a troubling development, as new injuries that crop up on Fridays are usually never good news. Stay tuned for more details on the severity of Brown's knee injury, but he should be highly questionable for this weekend. The Titans game is also on Sunday night, which means fantasy managers need to have a backup plan in place in case Brown cannot go. Julio Jones (hamstring) was removed from the final injury report, so he would likely be the team's leading receiver if Brown was forced to sit.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown has been on an absolute tear over his last three games. He has caught 25-of-29 targets for 379 yards and two touchdowns during that span. The 24-year-old averages 12.2 air yards per target and owns 26% of the team's target shares in 2021. Rams star corner Jalen Ramsey will probably shadow Brown, but Los Angeles ranks 25th in DVOA against WR1s and allow the 16th-most points to wideouts per game. Despite the tough matchup against Ramsey, the former second-round pick is a low-end WR1, and fantasy managers can start Brown with confidence in Week 9.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown caught 10-of-11 targets for 155 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-31 overtime win over the Indianapolis Colts. He had the game's biggest highlight in the second quarter by hauling in an impressive 57-yard touchdown reception to tie the game 14-14. Brown reeled in a season-high 155 yards in Sunday's overtime win. The 24-year-old now owns 33.9% of the team's target share and has caught 18 passes for 289 yards and two touchdowns over his last two games. Brown will look to continue his strong play against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 9.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown (knee) doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts. He was absent from Friday's practice as the Titans continued to manage his reps during the week. The 24-year-old has hauled in 15-of-18 targets for 224 yards and a touchdown over his last two games. Teammate wide receiver Julio Jones (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game. Brown owns 24% of the team's target share, 21st among all wide receivers. Fantasy managers can start Brown as a surefire WR1 in Week 8.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown caught 8-of-9 targets for 133 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-3 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. The 24-year-old overcame a battle of food poisoning during the week and showed no ill effects by torching the Chiefs defense with season-highs in both catches (8) and yards (133) in Sunday's win. He found the end zone for the first time since Week 1. Brown and QB Ryan Tannehill have shown great chemistry recently as the receiver has caught 15 passes for 224 yards and a touchdown over his last two games. The former second-round pick will look to continue his strong play in a plus matchup in Week 8 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown (illness), who has continued to deal with side effects from a bout with food poisoning this week, said that he will be fine for a Week 7 date with the Kansas City Chiefs. Brown has had to change his diet this week in order to hold food down, but he should be good to go this weekend. The 24-year-old was questionable going into last Monday's game, but he played and caught seven of nine targets for 91 yards, all of which came in the second half. Brown hasn't scored since Week 1 and isn't a top-50 fantasy wideout through seven weeks after missing one game due to a hamstring issue. However, he should be considered a low-end WR1 this weekend as Tennessee's top passing target in a matchup with a high-octane Chiefs offense.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown (illness) said on his Twitter account that his body continues to reject any food he eats as he tries to get past a bout of food poisoning that had him questionable to play last Monday night in Week 6. Brown didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday and could draw another questionable tag in Week 7 against the Kansas City Chiefs. It's been a rough week for the 24-year-old, and he looked to be under the weather in the first half of Monday's game before exploding for seven catches on nine targets for 91 yards in the second half. We ultimately expect him to play this Sunday in an excellent matchup against the Chiefs. As long as Brown is active, he needs to remain in all fantasy lineups.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown (illness) was missing from practice for the second straight day on Thursday. Receiver Chester Rogers (groin) also missed his second straight day. Brown was questionable for last weekend due to a bout of food poisoning, but he was active on Monday night and caught seven of his nine targets for 91 yards, with all of that coming in the second half in the win over the Buffalo Bills. As long as Brown gets back on the practice field on Friday, he should be good to go as a strong fantasy option in an excellent matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. Depending on the statuses of Julio Jones (hamstring) and Rogers, Nick Westbrook-Ikhine could have a considerably role against KC alongside Brown.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown (illness) did not participate in practice on Wednesday. Brown was questionable to play in Week 6 on Monday night due to a bout with food poisoning, but he managed to suit up. He was still feeling under the weather in the first half and did nothing before exploding for seven catches on nine targets for 91 yards in the second half in the win over the Buffalo Bills. Jones should once again be the Titans top target this weekend against the Kansas City Chiefs in an excellent matchup, and he could get even more looks with Julio Jones (hamstring) potentially missing his third game of the season. Brown will be a low-end WR1 this weekend and should be feeling better when Sunday rolls around.

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
