2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
The Eagles have been searching for a true alpha receiver for years now and they may have finally landed one in former Titan A.J. Brown. The Eagles acquired Brown via trade during this year's NFL Draft, giving up the 18th and 101st pick the process. The move corresponded with a four-year, $100 million extension for Brown which was seemingly the issue that kept him from remaining in Tennessee. Now that Philadelphia has invested both draft capital and financial assets into Brown, it appears as if they're intent on making him the top target in their emerging offense.

Brown brings a strong body with legitimate end zone skills and should immediately be Jalen Hurts' primary red zone weapon. Unfortunately for Brown, he's not going from a run-heavy offense in Tennessee to some sort of pass-happy utopia in Philadelphia. In fact, while the Titans threw the seventh-fewest total number of passes in 2021, it was the Eagles who actually sat dead last in pass attempts on the season. Certainly, the addition of Brown and the continued emergence of DeVonta Smith could be argued as reasons to believe that the Eagles will become more pass-friendly this season, but even a significant increase in pass attempts would only lead to the Eagles being a middle-of-the-pack passing offense overall. This should concern those who are considering drafting Brown as his real potential to be an elite fantasy wide receiver is ultimately tied to the targets that will come his way. As a member of the Titans, he was the undisputed top target in the passing game and he still finished outside the top 30 in total targets in the league. A move to an even less pass-heavy offense with more competition just doesn't seem like a recipe for a significant increase in fantasy value for Brown.

Of course, Brown is the kind of player who gets the most out of the targets he does see and being surrounded by better talent could mean even better per-target efficiency. It's unlikely that it'll make up for him still fighting for targets, but it should mean that Brown doesn't finish significantly lower at his position in 2022 than he did in 2021.

News From The Past 90 Days
A.J. Brown a frequent target early in camp
Ex-Titan has been "focal point" through first five practices
By: Doug Orth | Fri Aug 5, 1:05 am

Philadelphia Eagles
Jalen Hurts was also without DeVonta Smith, who did not practice because of a groin injury. As a result, Hurts targeted A.J. Brown early and often, primarily on Brown’s signature in-breaking routes. Brown has been the focal point of the offense through five days of training camp. Maybe that’s just Hurts trying to build chemistry with his new star wide receiver, or maybe it’s a preview of what’s to come. (The Athletic - Bo Wulf)

FFToday's Take: It should come as no surprise that Brown is a focal point of the offense, but his stock may have taken a bit of a hit in the offseason because Hurts is a less accurate quarterback than Ryan Tannehill. The Eagles may be able to make up for it with volume this season, as their moves this spring suggest HC Nick Sirianni wants to throw the ball like they did early last season. Brown should be considered a strong low-end WR1 option in drafts.
