Player Outlook
Brown is a consensus top-six wide receiver worthy of a selection in the first round of PPR leagues. While the rest of the Eagles offense struggled at times, Brown was their consistent alpha, setting a career-high with 106 receptions. The only downside was his low touchdown total, but we expect that was just a blip, not something that will carry over into 2024. His 2,952 receiving yards since he arrived in Philadelphia trail only Tyreek Hill and CeeDee Lamb and his long-term contract ties him to Jalen Hurts and the Eagles for the foreseeable future. Dynasty managers should expect the 27-year-old to be one of the best wide receivers in football for at least the next three seasons.

  • Eagles' A.J. Brown: Lucrative extension with Philly

    Brown (knee) signed a three-year, $96 million extension with the Eagles on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Rumors emerged early in the offseason that Brown was on his way out of Philadelphia after a disappointing close to the 2023 campaign. He did his best to shut the speculation down, and this extension -- which reportedly includes $84 million in guaranteed money -- should squash any lingering doubt as to his future with the Eagles as he's now under contract through 2029. Brown -- who is bouncing back from a knee issue that he sustained in the Eagles' regular-season finale -- has had two standout seasons with the team, topping 1,450 in each year with 18 total touchdowns.

  • Eagles' A.J. Brown: Wants to stay in Philly

    Brown (knee) called into Sports Radio 94WIP on Friday to shut down trade rumors and say that he wants to stay with the Eagles. Brown took matters into his own hands after hearing trade rumors from Philadelphia media on the heels of the Eagles' late-season meltdown. He was clear about not wanting to be traded and not having any issues with QB Jalen Hurts, and Brown also mentioned feeling like the team's coaches were unfairly blamed for a disappointing 2023. All the same, Philadelphia will have new coordinators on both sides of the ball in 2024, having hired Kellen Moore for the offense and Vic Fangio for the defense. Assuming he's right about the trade rumors being bogus, Brown will remain a central figure in the offense for the second season of his four-year, $100 million extension. The knee injury that kept him out of a wild-card loss to Tampa Bay isn't expected to impact his preparations for 2024, and Brown figures to be taken late in the first round or early in the second round of most fantasy drafts, just as he was last summer.

  • Eagles' A.J. Brown: Confirmed out for Monday

    Head coach Nick Sirianni confirmed Saturday that Brown (knee) will not play in Monday's playoff matchup against the Buccaneers, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports. Sirianni suggested the Eagles would attempt to get by without Brown by using a committee of targets including DeVonta Smith, Dallas Goedert, Julio Jones, Olamide Zaccheaus and Quez Watkins, but the initial two project to see the biggest increase in workload. With potentially inclement weather also impacting the playoff matchup in Tampa Bay, D'Andre Swift and the totality of the Eagles rushing attack figures to also see heavy usage.

  • Eagles' A.J. Brown: Not expected to play Monday

    Brown (knee) is not expected to play Monday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. The Eagles haven't officially ruled out Brown, but multiple reports suggest the Pro Bowl wideout will be unavailable to play in the wild-card matchup against the Buccaneers come Monday. Once he's inevitably ruled out, expect the likes of DeVonta Smith and Dallas Goedert to be the team's primary focus from a passing perspective, with Julio Jones, Olamide Zaccheaus and Quez Watkins all factoring in as ancillary pieces.

  • Eagles' A.J. Brown: Sitting out again Friday

    Brown (knee) was absent from Friday's practice, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports. Brown thus hasn't logged any on-field work since injuring his knee during the Eagles' Week 18 loss at the Giants, giving him one more chance to do so before the team potentially makes a ruling on his availability for Monday's wild-card game in Tampa Bay. He likely will do everything in his power to suit up in Philadelphia's postseason opener, but if Brown is limited or out, Julio Jones, Quez Watkins and Olamide Zaccheaus would be the candidates to get WR reps alongside DeVonta Smith.

  • Eagles' A.J. Brown: Not practicing Thursday

    Brown (knee) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. Since Brown left this past Sunday's loss at the Giants due to a knee injury, there hasn't been much intel regarding his health, other than a report from Mike Garafolo of NFL Network afterward in which Brown's issue wasn't believed to be a serious one. With three days to rest up before the Eagles' first session ahead of Monday's wild-card game in Tampa Bay, Brown focused on rehab versus on-field work Thursday, but he'll have two more chances to mix into drills and put himself on a path to play.

  • Eagles' A.J. Brown: Knee injury likely minor

    The knee injury Brown suffered in Sunday's 27-10 loss to the Giants isn't believed to be serious, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Brown exited in the first half of the regular-season finale but was the first player greeting players in the locker room after the game. Jalen Hurts (finger) also left in the first half, and while both players are more likely than not to be available for the wild-card round in Tampa Bay, Philadelphia's injury report heading into the playoffs will be worth monitoring to confirm their availability.

  • Eagles' A.J. Brown: Not returning Sunday

    Brown (knee) won't return to Sunday's contest at the Giants, Brooks Kubena of The Athletic reports. Brown stayed on the turf for a spell after his first catch of the game near the end of the first quarter. Eagles trainers tended to him before he limped to the sideline and then went to the locker room. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network later reported that Brown's ACL seems to be intact, but further testing will determine the extent of the injury. For the time being, Brown's status for the wild-card round is up in the air, as is that of fellow wide receiver DeVonta Smith (ankle), who's inactive Week 18.

  • Eagles' A.J. Brown: Leaves Sunday with knee injury

    Brown departed Sunday's game at the Giants due to a knee injury. At the end of a nine-yard catch, his first of the contest, Brown lost a fumble and then remained on the turf in visible pain while Eagles trainers tended to one of his legs. He then limped off the field and spent some time in the sideline tent before the locker room visit. The extent of the injury isn't clear, but with DeVonta Smith (ankle) sidelined Week 18, the team may eventually downgrade Brown from questionable to out with the upcoming postseason in mind.

  • Eagles' A.J. Brown: Paces PHI with 53 receiving yards

    Brown finished with four receptions on five targets for 53 yards in Sunday's 35-31 loss to Arizona. Brown finished as the Eagles' leading receiver after DeVonta Smith (foot) held that honor by one yard over Brown in last week's win over the Giants. Philadelphia's entire passing attack posted low-volume numbers Sunday, resulting in a pedestrian fantasy score for Brown's managers. The star wideout could be in store for a bump in usage this upcoming week against the Giants after the aforementioned Smith was seen using crutches after injuring his right foot late in Sunday's loss.

  • Eagles' A.J. Brown: Leading receiver against Giants

    Brown caught six of 11 targets for 80 yards in Monday's 33-25 win over the Giants. He topped DeVonta Smith by one yard for the team lead, but the latter hauled in Jalen Hurts' only passing TD of the day. Brown hasn't scored a touchdown of his own in four straight games, posting a 28-344-0 line on 47 targets over that stretch. He'll look to break that drought Week 17 against the Cardinals.

  • Eagles' A.J. Brown: Modest numbers in Week 15 loss

    Brown brought in five of 10 targets for 56 yards in the Eagles' 20-17 loss to the Seahawks on Monday night. The star receiver tied DeVonta Smith for the team lead in receptions while pacing the Eagles in receiving yards and targets, but his numbers were naturally considered a disappointment overall. Brown also was the intended receiver on Jalen Hurts' downfield heave with 13 seconds remaining that culminated in Julian Love's game-sealing interception. Brown does have at least five catches in four consecutive games following his one-reception, eight-yard outlier against the Chiefs in Week 11, but he has just one touchdown reception in the last five contests overall. The fifth-year pro could have a good chance to bounce back against the Giants in a Week 16 home matchup on Christmas Day.

  • Eagles' A.J. Brown: Busy night in Week 14 loss

    Brown secured nine of 13 targets for 94 yards in the Eagles' 33-13 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday night. He also lost a fumble. The Eagles offense turned in a disappointing effort as a whole, but Brown put together a productive night that featured team highs in receptions, receiving yards and targets. However, the talented wideout also fumbled on the Cowboys' 44-yard line after a seven-yard grab early in the third quarter, his first turnover of the campaign. Brown now has a 17-208 line over the last two contests, affording him plenty of momentum going into a Week 15 road battle against the Seahawks on Dec. 18.

  • Eagles' A.J. Brown: Leading receiver in loss

    Brown (thigh) had eight receptions on 13 targets for 114 yards in Sunday's 42-19 loss to San Francisco. Brown powered through a nagging thigh injury to produce his first 100-yard game since Week 8. Fellow starter DeVonta Smith caught Jalen Hurts' lone touchdown pass Sunday, but Brown finished with the team lead in targets (13) and yards (114). The star wideout's production had tapered off in recent weeks following a white-hot start to the campaign, so Sunday's gaudy receiving performance along with improved health could get him back on track. Expect Brown to be heavily involved when the Eagles face the Cowboys in a crucial NFC East matchup on Sunday Night Football in Week 14.

  • Eagles' A.J. Brown: Cleared for flight

    Brown (thigh) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. TE Dallas Goedert (arm) is listed as doubtful, but Jalen Hurts otherwise will have his favorite pass catchers available after all of them had practice restrictions early in the week. There's been no indication that Brown's thigh injury is serious enough to limit his workload, and he managed at least limited participation in each practice this week.

  • Eagles' A.J. Brown: Limited again Thursday

    Brown (thigh) practiced in a limited fashion Thursday. Brown maintained his listed activity level from Wednesday, giving him one more chance this week to get back to full before the Eagles potentially hand him an injury designation ahead of Sunday's showdown with the 49ers. He was able to play through the thigh injury this past Sunday against the Bills on his way to a 5-37-1 line on nine targets on a 94 percent snap share. As a result, it'd be a surprise if Brown isn't available for a crucial Week 13 contest.

  • Eagles' A.J. Brown: Hauls in TD against Buffalo

    Brown caught five of nine targets for 37 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 37-34 overtime win over the Bills. He once again took a back seat to DeVonta Smith, but Brown still made an impact, hauling in a three-yard TD strike from Jalen Hurts in the third quarter as the Eagles began their second-half comeback. Brown has gone three straight games without reaching 100 receiving yards after his record-setting run of six straight weeks with 130-plus yards, but he could rebound if a Week 13 meeting with the 49ers turns into another barn burner.

  • Eagles' A.J. Brown: Cleared for Week 12

    Brown (thigh) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Bills. Brown upgraded to full participation Friday after being listed as limited the previous two days. He's coming off his first dud of the season -- one catch for eight yards in Monday's win over Kansas City -- but is already over 1,000 receiving yards for the campaign.

  • Eagles' A.J. Brown: Another limited listing

    Brown (thigh) was listed as limited on Thursday's injury report. The Eagles are placing listed restrictions on Brown's activity level this week due to a thigh injury, and now Friday's practice report will reveal whether or not he heads into the weekend with a designation for Sunday's game versus the Bills. As one of four players in the NFL with at least 1,000 receiving yards this season, his status of course is of interest in the fantasy realm.
