Raiders sign WR John Brown, fantasy impact


After getting released by the Buffalo Bills, WR John Brown has found a new home with the Las Vegas Raiders, according to Fox Sports’ Adam Caplan.


Brown turns 31 next month. He spent his first four years in Arizona and then a year in Baltimore before playing the last two years with the Bills. He had a 1,000-yard 2019, but the arrival of Stefon Diggs and injuries limited Brown to only 458 yards in nine games in 2020.

Raiders replace Nelson Agholor, sign John Brown

Fantasy slant: This is a depth move for the Raiders after the team moved on from Nelson Agholor. While Brown did flash some upside when healthy last season, he isn't long for the fantasy radar. Not only is he north of 30 with injuries starting to mount up, but Brown's skillset also pairs poorly with Derek Carr's low-aDOT tendencies. — Jeff Ratcliffe
