John Brown (WR, BUF) - Fantasy Football Draft Values


BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~130 Overall

Current ADP: ~145

ANALYSIS: As an elite deep threat, John Brown is one of my favorite Best Ball targets, but one that is really worth a roster spot in all leagues. For starters, John Brown is not simply a deep ball threat, as Matt Harmon has been trying to point out for years. When he was healthy in 2014 and 2015, many viewed him as one of the best young WRs in football. Injuries and a diagnosis of being a carrier for Sickle Cell Disease caused uneven production for two years, but he was showing the skills again last year with Joe Flacco under center. In fact, 78% of his total receiving yards for the year came in the first seven games, before Lamar Jackson took over under center.

For all of the concerns about Josh Allen’s accuracy, he is not afraid to throw deep, and he uncorked some beautiful throws to Robert Foster in the final weeks of the season last year on routes that are similar to the ones Brown will be running. He and John Brown are apparently on the same page in the preseason, and I think they could be a solid big play combo. You may never be fully confident in what week he’s going to hit big, but I think it will happen often enough to make you want him on your team.
