Mike Evans is being chosen only one slot greater than Brown, and given the selection, I might quite have the Bucs broad receiver. It’s a shut contest, however Evans can have an enormous yr in Bruce Arians’ offense.
Don’t be stunned if Brown drops in your fantasy draft as homeowners are scared away by the damage and retirement speak. Many house owners had been burned by Le’Veon Bell final season inflicting some followers to be extra risk-averse than regular. This might give you a good higher worth for Brown than his ADP of 22. The excellent news is that whereas Brown’s blistered ft should not secure to have a look at on an empty abdomen, all indicators level to the Raiders broad receiver being prepared for the beginning of the season.
