AJ Brown’s target share was already ranking 7th in 2020, but on a run heavy offense, only netted him 7.6 targets/game – 24th in the NFL.
He had only 1 double-digit target game… in Week 17.
He still finished as a WR1 in PPR fantasy points/game.
Now, the Titans are without Corey Davis, Adam Humphries, and Jonnu Smith; that accounts for 15.9 targets/game.
How much of that do you want to give AJ? A conservative 4 more targets/game? Well, that would have him lead the NFL in raw targets/game.
The Titans didn’t address their WR position outside of adding Josh Reynolds in free agency (1 year/$1.75M).
Brown only had 2 Top-5 weekly finishes at the WR position last year. That number is bound to go up big time.
He has been incredibly efficient over his first two seasons, and he’s finally going to get the monster target numbers he deserves.
He was the only WR in the NFL to finish in the top-3 in yards/route run over the past two seasons… one of which was his rookie year.
Sure, Brown will get doubled at times. It doesn’t matter. Raw targets have the highest correlation to fantasy success. Don’t overthink this one.
