27-Year-Old CornerbackCB
Dallas Cowboys
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Brown once again was limited by injuries last year and has missed 13 games total over the last two seasons. He made an occasional impact when healthy, however, including scoring his first career touchdown. The Cowboys' selection of Kelvin Joseph in the second round of the 2021 Draft represents a threat to Brown's usage, as neither Trevon Diggs nor Jourdan Lewis seem likely to lose their roles. But Brown still should see a starter's workload in the early going unless Joseph proves he's ready more quickly than expected. Read Past Outlooks

Leading tackler in win
CBDallas Cowboys
December 3, 2021
Brown recorded 10 tackles (nine solo) and two passes defended in Thursday's 27-17 win over the Saints.
ANALYSIS
New Orleans tried to prey upon Brown one week after his rough performance against the Raiders, but instead the cornerback stepped up and led Dallas in tackles while reaching double digits for the second time this season. The 27-year-old's 60 tackles on the season are already a new career high, as are his three INTs and 13 passes defended, and as long as offenses try to stay away from Trevon Diggs, Brown will carry deep-league IDP value.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
2018
2017
Brown played only nine games in 2019 due to a torn triceps, recording 17 tackles and failing to secure at least one sack or INT for the first time in four NFL campaigns. Byron Jones' departure opens up starting snaps in the Dallas secondary, but second-round pick Trevon Diggs will get the first chance to claim them, likely leaving Brown in a depth role once again.
Heading into his fourth NFL season, Brown has cemented his place as a useful depth corner for the Cowboys behind more talented teammates like Byron Jones and Chidobe Awuzie, but his skills and abilities are stretched if he gets pressed into a starting role.
The 2016 sixth-round pick put together another solid campaign last year, recording 56 tackles and two INTs while also picking up his first career sack. Brown isn't going to be mistaken for a shut-down corner, but he's proven to be useful in nickel and dime packages and can step in to a larger role when injuries hit the depth chart above him. Byron Jones' shift to corner adds one more player in front of him, however, and could end up costing him snaps in 2018.
An unheralded sixth-round pick in the 2016 draft, injuries and ineffective play in the Dallas secondary forced Brown to take on a much larger role than anticipated as a rookie and he thrived with the extra responsibility, finishing the year with 55 tackles and eight passes defended while getting better as the season progressed. With the Cowboys in the process of rebuilding the entire back end of their defense, Brown should be a key figure in that rebuild over the next few seasons.
