2019 Fantasy Outlook
The offseason re-signing of Denzel Perryman likely quelled any optimism regarding Brown turning into a breakout IDP candidate in 2019. Still, given the Perryman's injury history (16 games missed in the past two seasons) it's not hard to envision a scenario where at some point this season Brown becomes the focal point in an emerging linebacking corps. Brown recorded a career-high in tackles (97) in 2018, but that occurred only after season-ending injuries to Perryman and Kyzir White, the latter of which is expected to regain his role as coverage linebacker in obvious passing situations.

Brown (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.
ANALYSIS
With a full practice under his belt, Brown will be ready to make his 2019 debut. It's unclear how Brown will fit in on defense, as Thomas Davis has played every snap so far, while Kyzir White punched in at 89 percent, and Uchenna Nwosu has filled in sparingly. It's likely that Brown takes a similar role to Nwosu since Davis and White have looked solid thus far.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
After a promising rookie campaign, Brown's second season was a major disappointment, as the middle linebacker eventually fell out of the team's rotation following a string of poor performances. The surprising drop-off in production prompted the Chargers to retain the services of Nick Dzubnar and Hayes Pullard in the offseason, both of whom briefly started at ILB in 2017, as well as select Ucheena Nwosu in the second-round of the 2018 NFL Draft. As a result, Brown will have to ascend a loaded depth chart if he has any hopes of starting alongside incumbent ILB Denzel Perryman.
The NFL took Brown for an afterthought as a 220-pound linebacker out of Akron, but the Chargers clearly got a steal by snagging him in the fifth round of last year's draft. Brown went three rounds later for the sin of playing at a small school. It took injuries to Denzel Perryman and Manti Te'o for Brown to get the opportunity, but he made quite an impression as a rookie. With 79 tackles and 3.5 sacks while playing just 599 snaps, Brown made it clear he possesses unique upside as a tackle and blitzing threat now that Te'o isn't in town.
