AJ Brown makes revealing fantasy football trade that hints at injury status
The Tennessee Titans kick off their season on Sunday and hope to make a deeper playoff run than last year. After a busy offseason, this franchise has set themselves up as the early favorite in the AFC South. Their Week 1 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals will provide a glimpse into what we can expect on the season.
Although many anticipate AJ Brown’s 2021 outlook and view him as one of the best receivers in the league, Brown was reported on the Titans’ injury list on Wednesday. Brown had dealt with knee issues throughout the entire 2020 season and hasn’t participated much throughout training camp or the preseason. This has caused some concern about whether or not he will be available against the Cardinals.

However, Brown made a move Wednesday that suggests his health status. According to Yahoo Sports, AJ Brown sent a tweet to Kay Adams about a trade he made in his fantasy football league. Apparently, Brown is so confident, that he traded for himself in fantasy football.
@heykayadams I made the trade today and it hurt 😩
Travis kelce and Keenan Allen for Robert Tonyan and AJ Brown.
Week 1 should be a show! Great feeling about this AJ brown kid. 😉

Brown is a hilarious character that repeatedly sends silly tweets through Twitter. He does so again and may have accidentally revealed his true injury status. NFL teams, especially the Titans, tend to keep as many secrets from their opponents as the rules allow. Now that it’s out in the open that AJ Brown will play, Titans fans should be at ease until Sunday. Furthermore, anyone else who has Brown on their fantasy team should start him with confidence.
The Titans wide receiver group has a favorable matchup in Week 1. Arizona is relying on a very young and inexperienced secondary and they’re going up against AJ Brown and Julio Jones. Tennessee is bound to take advantage of the Cardinals’ young secondary and we might see them air it out more often than usual. We’ll see how the rest of the Titans’ season plays out, as Tennessee has the roster to make a legitimate Super Bowl run.
