Journey Brown
Running BackRB
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Brown’s explosion down the stretch gave a glimpse of how good he can be in the starting role. He took 78 carries for 593 yards and nine touchdowns over his final five games, two of which came against Top-25 run defenses. Brown enters 2020 as the No.1 in Penn State’s backfield, and Penn State could be more run-oriented under new offensive coordinator Kirk Ciarrocca, who comes to Happy Valley after calling run plays over 60 percent of the time at Minnesota. Brown has talented teammates like Noah Cain and Devyn Ford behind him, so he may fall shy of being a true workhorse. Still, Brown should push for 200 carries with explosive per-carry efficiency and big-play upside, making him a fringe Top 12 running back. Read Past Outlooks
Has monster bowl performance
December 29, 2019
Brown carried the ball 16 times for 202 yards and two touchdowns in the 53-39 win over Memphis in the Cotton Bowl on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Penn State relied on the run Saturday and Brown did all he could with his 16 rushes. The redshirt-sophomore has been a very reliable back since taking on a larger workload midseason when Noah Cain went out with an undisclosed injury. Brown finishes the year with 129 rushes for 890 yards and 13 total touchdowns. Although he is eligible to declare for the NFL Draft, the running back is expected to return to Penn State next season.
