RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-11

Brown finished the 2023 season with 13 catches on 15 targets for 208 yards and a touchdown in 17 games with the Patriots.

Brown, who turns 30 in May, carved out a niche in the Patriots offense this past season alongside fellow TEs Hunter Henry and Mike Gesicki, making his mark as a run blocker, while also logging six receptions that resulted in 15-plus yard gains. Brown is slated to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason and should be able to land another opportunity to work in a complementary role in 2024, be it in New England or elsewhere.

Active for Sunday's game

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-07

Brown (ribs) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Brown, who practiced in a limited fashion this past week, approached the contest listed as questionable, but he'll be able to give it a go in the Patriots' season finale. With Hunter Henry (knee) sidelined Sunday, Mike Gesicki and Brown are slated to lead the team's Week 18 TE corps, but Brown hasn't caught more than two passes in any of the 16 games that he's suited up for this season, so he's only a fantasy option in the deepest of formats.

Chance to play Week 18

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-05

Brown (ribs) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Jets.

Brown likely suffered a ribs injury during the New England's Week 17 loss to the Bills, but he was able to practice in a limited fashion throughout the week and he's got a chance to play Sunday. The 29-year-old saw his highest snap share of the season (68 percent) in last Sunday's loss, and he could have the opportunity to see increased work on a Patriots offense that's without Hunter Henry (knee) again in Week 18.

Lands on injury report

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-03

Brown (ribs) was listed as limited on the Patriots' injury report Wednesday.

Brown played his highest percentage of offensive snaps on the season in Sunday's loss to the Bills, but he also picked up an injury along the way. His status for Week 18 against the Jets will remain up in the air for now, but he still has Thursday and Friday to ramp up his activity level in practice and increase his chances of suiting up this weekend.

One catch Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-01

Brown caught his only target for five yards in Sunday's 27-21 loss to the Bills.

With With Hunter Henry (knee) sidelined for the second straight game, Brown and Mike Gesicki both logged 36 of a possible 53 snaps on offense Sunday. However, it was Gesicki who did more in the passing game versus Buffalo, catching four of his six targets for 35 yards. As the Patriots' season finale against the Jets approaches, Brown is off the fantasy lineup radar,with an overall 12/208/1 receiving line through 16 games.

Two catches in Week 16

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-25

Brown, who logged 27 of a possible 58 snaps on offense in Sunday's 26-23 win over the Broncos, per Mike Reiss of, caught both of his targets in the contest for 25 yards.

With Hunter Henry (knee) inactive, Brown and Mike Gesicki (38 snaps, two catches for 15 yards and a TD) handled the majority of New England's TE reps in Week 16. Through 15 games, Brown has recorded an 11/203/1 receiving line, and has yet to record more than two catches this season, a context that limits his fantasy utility as this weekend's game against the Bills approaches.

Good to go versus Kansas City

Brown (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Brown was a late addition to the Patriots' injury report Saturday with a foot injury, though the issue doesn't appear serious enough to force him out for Sunday's contest. Brown has split his time between backup tight end duties and special teams and has caught all eight of his targets for 174 yards and a touchdown over 13 games this season.

Late addition to injury report

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-16

Brown has been deemed questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs due to a foot injury.

Brown wasn't listed on the Patriots' injury report until Saturday, so it's unclear when the foot issue cropped up. The veteran tight end regularly logs about half of New England's offensive snaps, but his work as a pass catcher has been limited. Over his past five games, Brown has totaled just one catch on one target for four yards.

Involvement on offense declining

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-06

Brown played 32 of the Patriots' 64 snaps on offense but went without a target in Sunday's 6-0 loss to the Chargers.

Brown made some splash plays over the Patriots' first eight games of the season with four of his seven receptions during that stretch going for 20-plus yards, but he's been relegated almost exclusively to a blocking role ever since. The 29-year-old has gone without a target in four straight contests, and fellow tight ends Hunter Henry and Mike Gesicki should remain more involved in the passing game than Brown in the weeks to come.
