A.J. Brown News
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver A.J. Brown will take on the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Conference Championship this Sunday. The 25-year-old was not needed much during last week's 38-7 drubbing of the New York Giants, and he posted a stat line of only three receptions for 22 yards. The media has taken his head being down on the sidelines at the end of the game as Brown not being happy with the low output, so it would not be a shock to see quarterback Jalen Hurts get him involved early and often in this game. The matchup for Brown is great, as the 49ers allowed the sixth-most fantasy points per game to the wide receiver position this past regular season and let have allowed top targets like DK Metcalf and CeeDee Lamb to post big stat lines against them the past two weeks. Brown is primed for a bounce-back performance and is a top-tier option in DFS and playoff lineups this weekend.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver A.J. Brown (hip) was removed from the team's injury report on Wednesday after tweaking his left hip in the blowout win over the division-rival New York Giants in the Divisional Round. The Eagles didn't need Brown much in their 38-7 victory, and he disappointed his fantasy managers with only three receptions and 22 receiving yards. He should be full-speed ahead for the NFC Championship game against the San Francisco 49ers this Sunday. While the Niners D is one of the best in the league, they were very generous to opposing wideouts in fantasy in 2022, and Brown finished the regular season as the WR5 in half-point PPR scoring. A big bounce-back game could be in the cards this weekend.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver A.J. Brown (hip) is expected to practice on Wednesday, according to head coach Nick Sirianni. Brown injured his left hip in the Divisional Round win over the New York Giants, but he downplayed the injury after the game and should be fine to suit up this Sunday in the NFC Championship against the San Francisco 49ers. The 25-year-old didn't do much last weekend in the blowout win, catching just three of his six targets for 22 yards. The Eagles didn't really need Brown in the second half of that game, so there's a good chance he will bounce back for fantasy managers in playoff leagues this weekend, barring a setback of his hip injury. The Niners defense is one of the best in the NFL, but they were generous to opposing pass-catchers fantasy-wise in 2022.
Former Tennessee Titans' star wide receiver A.J. Brown was recently traded to the Philadelphia Eagles for the 18th and 101st overall picks in the 2022 NFL Draft. Immediately following this move, the Eagles and Brown agreed on a 4-year, $100 million contract, including $57 million guaranteed. Clearly, the team plans to use Brown heavily, and he will immediately become the team's number one receiving threat, ahead of both WR DeVonta Smith and TE Dallas Goedert. These moves also indicate that the...
