3. A.J. Brown
ADP: 21.05 (245 Overall) or WR81
My Ranking: WR40
Highly touted as a first-round prospect out of Ole Miss, A.J. Brown has made some noise during Titans OTAs. The second-round pick, Brown, exudes swagger and self-confidence. According to Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller, he’s got the juice to back it up.
In 2019, Brown has his work cut out for him. Recently, NFL Network’s Charles Davis compared him to Hall of Famer Andre Reed. Another pro-comparison, JuJu Smith-Schuster, burst onto the scene after being drafted in a similar spot in 2017.
Assuming Brown continues to impress, he should line up opposite Corey Davis on the boundary. I’ve elected to take the modest approach regarding his projected target share and set it at 12 percent. With his crisp route-running, ability to force missed tackles, and yards after catch mastery, he’s going to be a reliable weapon for many years to come.
2019 Projection: 40 REC, 564 YDS, 4 TDS
Fantasy Points: 100.6 (Good for 2018 WR59)
Draft: 10th Round
