2018 Fantasy Outlook
After a five-year stint in Arizona, Brown signed a two-year deal with the Seahawks this offseason and might have the best opportunity of his career. The departure of Jimmy Graham and Paul Richardson leaves 176 targets up for grabs in Seattle. The Seahawks signed Brandon Marshall in May, but Brown should still get a good share of those. Tight ends Ed Dickson, Nick Vannett and a cast of inexperienced wideouts offer little competition for targets. Doug Baldwin is the team's clear No. 1 and Tyler Lockett its field stretcher, but at 6-3, 204, Brown could be a red-zone target and himself ran a 4.40 40 at his pro day. Whatever happens, he'll be playing with the best quarterback of his career in Russell Wilson. Read Past Outlooks

Zero targets yet again
WRSeattle Seahawks
January 6, 2019
Brown played 35 offensive snaps and wasn't targeted in Saturday's wild-card loss to the Cowboys.
David Moore took over as Seattle's No. 3 wideout for most of the regular season, but he faltered over the final few weeks and Brown reclaimed the role for playoffs. Brown wasn't targeted for the seventh time this season, and he finished the campaign with 14 receptions for 166 yards and five touchdowns. He was a frustrating fantasy vulture for owners of Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett, since three of the games Brown scored in were preceded by a game where he didn't make a catch. Brown has one year left on his contract, and he'll be 29 by the beginning of next season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Brown worked his way into the passing equation early on last season due to Michael Floyd's lackadaisical outings and John Brown's health concerns, receiving between two and six targets in each of the first six games. However, an insistence on playing through a balky knee resulted in a torn ACL and the end of Jaron Brown's campaign. Ultimately, he signed a one-year extension within a month and progressed through his recovery with the knowledge that Floyd is out of the picture due to a self-inflicted circumstance. As he approaches the end of the road, he was able to run routes, without cutting, at full speed during OTAs. Due to health concerns from John Brown and underwhelming development from J.J. Nelson, Jaron Brown has been elevated to No. 2 on the wide receiver depth chart, increasing his chances of a breakout in 2017.
Brown is one of the many cogs in the Cardinals' well-oiled machine of wideouts. In three seasons in Arizona, Brown has hauled in 44 receptions for four touchdowns, buried behind the likes of Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd, and John Brown on the depth chart. The 26-year-old has the potential to make a splash in any given week but isn't a reliable week-in, week-out fantasy option.
Entering training camp in 2013 as an undrafted free agent, Brown fended off the competition to land the final wide receiver spot on the Cardinals' 53-man roster. Since then, he's maintained active status in all 32 regular season games to date, and followed up an 11/140/1 rookie season with 22 receptions for 229 yards and two touchdowns last year in spite of the rotating cast at quarterback. In particular, he recorded multiple catches in all but one contest from Weeks 9 through 14, racking up 18 grabs (on 25 targets) for 201 yards (11.2 YPC) and one score. Unless the Clemson product takes a step back this offseason, he should act as a pass-catching option outside of Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd, John Brown, J.J. Nelson, Andre Ellington, and David Johnson.
Despite his status as an undrafted free agent in 2013, Brown managed to open the year on the 53-man roster and remained active for all 16 outings, racking up 11 catches (on 18 targets) for 140 yards and one touchdown in the process. The receiving corps countered its loss of Andre Roberts in free agency by picking up Ted Ginn and drafting John Brown in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft, but Jaron will have to flounder during the preseason in order to lose out on the No. 5 wideout gig.
