It’s not a surprise to see AJ Brown on the Titans’ final injury report in a given week, but he’s generally not considered truly “questionable.” Heading into Week 9’s Sunday Night Football showdown with the Rams, though, Brown looks like a legitimate decision at game time, and his status is sure to cause a lot of headaches for his fantasy football owners. Knowing the latest updates will be key as you wait to put the finishing touches on your lineup and find out if Brown is playing.

We will continue to update this article with news about Brown until the official active / inactive report comes out on Sunday around 6:50 pm ET. For the latest fantasy updates, follow us on Twitter @ SN_Fantasy.

Will AJ Brown play Sunday night?

Brown (knee) normally practiced on Wednesdays and Thursdays This week, but a “DNP” on Friday has his status in question for Sunday night’s game. A rating downgrade late in the week is always concerning, but Brown reportedly didn’t seem overly concerned when speaking to the media on Friday. Still, fantasy owners should be prepared for Brown to be idle Sunday night.

WEEK 9 STANDARD RANKINGS:
Attack player | Running back | The wide receiver | Hard ending | D / ST | Kicker

There are not many viable pivots if Brown is inactive. The best widely available option would be Los Angeles’ Van Jefferson, but he could also see if Chicago’s Darnell Mooney (groin) is on the list of free agents in his league. In the worst case, you could try a Tennessee backup like Josh Reynolds or Nick Westbrook-Ikhine and just wait for a touchdown. You can also go for Steelers TE Pat Freiermuth if you’ve left your flex spot open.

If Brown is active, he must start. There are some minor concerns about the injury and a possible showdown with Jalen Ramsey, but Brown has shown he can produce against anyone. It’s just too good to sit on, so we recommend waiting for it. That said, it’s only fair to expect a few more goals for Julio Jones, who isn’t even on the Titans’ injury report after missing last week’s game due to hamstring pain.
