2020 Fantasy Outlook
Brown has the inside track on a roster spot as a depth piece, but he's a non-factor in the passing game, with only 42 catches in 58 career NFL games. The 6-5 tight end was put on the non-football injury list in July, but it's unclear what the nature of his injury is and whether it will affect his availability this season. Read Past Outlooks

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
2017
Brown is a blocking tight end who will be fighting an uphill battle just to make the Jets' roster, though his case is helped by the fact that starter Chris Herndon will be suspended for the first four weeks of the season. With just 35 catches and one touchdown in 42 career NFL appearances, Brown is unlikely to have any impact in the fantasy realm.
Brown played a career-high 14 games for the Bears last year, though he saw just 242 offensive snaps while catching 13 passes for 129 yards. In four NFL seasons, he has a total of 317 yards and one touchdown, so he's yet to emerge as a consistent receiving threat. Since he was a contributor on special teams last year, he should make the roster while being no better than the Bears fourth tight end, and with the addition of Trey Burton to the roster, he'll struggle to see much opportunity to contribute as a receiver.
Once the Bears lost Zach Miller to a foot injury in Week 11 last year, the Bears turned to the 2015 undrafted free agent to take over as the primary receiving tight end. Unfortunately, Brown surpassed 24 yards just a single time in those six games, and sensing a need at tight end, Chicago signed Dion Sims to a free-agent deal before adding Adam Shaheen in the second round of the 2017 draft. With Brown returning on a one-year contract, he'll enter training camp near the bottom of the depth chart, where his roster spot may be in peril. Even if he sticks around, though, it's unlikely he'll see enough targets over the course of the season to be a reliable fantasy option.
