Mike Brown caught three passes for 36 yards in Sunday's Week 1 loss at Philadelphia.
With Cecil Shorts (hamstring) sidelined, Brown was the No. 3 wideout behind Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee. The undersized former UDFA is not good enough to capitalize on this kind of mediocre opportunity. Sep 7 - 6:08 PM

Date:

Mike Brown is expected to start in place of Cecil Shorts (hamstring), opposite rookie Marqise Lee, on Sunday against the Eagles.

Brown is the lone non-rookie of the Jaguars' four-man receiver group with Shorts out. He was targeted 20 times in the preseason, but only caught nine of those passes for 140 yards, while dropping two balls. Brown made six starts in 2013. Expect to see plenty of UDFA Allen Hurns in three-wide sets Sunday. Lee and Hurns are interesting, cheap FanDuel options. We're not high on Brown.
Sep 7 - 8:13 AM

Jaguars re-signed exclusive rights free agent WR Mike Brown to a one-year, $495,000 contract.

Brown caught 32 balls for 446 yards and two touchdowns across 11 games and six starts last season. Ideally, he's nothing more than a No. 4 receiver. The Jaguars are a dark horse to snag Sammy Watkins or Mike Evans in the first round of next month's draft. Brown will have to compete for a roster spot this summer.
Apr 16 - 7:06 PM

Jaguars tendered offers to exclusive rights free agents WR Mike Brown, WR Kerry Taylor, and G/T Austin Pasztor.

Brown and Taylor will each earn $495,000. Pasztor will bag $570,000. Brown appeared in 11 games last season, starting six in place of Justin Blackmon, and caught 32 passes for 446 yards and two scores. He's merely a No. 4 receiver. Pasztor started 12 games at right tackle and was above average in pass pro.
Mar 7 - 10:43 AM

Jaguars WR Mike Brown caught three balls for 43 yards in Jacksonville's Week 17 loss to Indianapolis.

Winding up with six starts in his second NFL season, Brown benefited from Justin Blackmon's in-season suspension and finished with 32 catches for 446 yards and two touchdowns. Turning 25 in February, Brown is a developing former college quarterback who likely projects as Jacksonville's No. 4 receiver in 2014, assuming Blackmon is reinstated. The Jaguars' top three wideouts are Cecil Shorts, Blackmon, and 2013 draft pick Ace Sanders.

Mike Brown (wrist) is listed as probable for Week 17.

Brown returned to a full practice Friday after being held out earlier in the week. He should continue to see an expanded role with Cecil Shorts out for the season, but remains just a WR4 for Sunday's matchup with the Colts.
Sat, Dec 28, 2013 10:12:00 PM

Mike Brown had five catches for 71 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 16 loss to the Titans.

With Cecil Shorts (groin, I.R) out for the season, Brown saw an expanded role in the passing game and finished with six targets. He got the majority of his yardage on a 24-yard catch against broken coverage in the second quarter and scored on a seven-yard screen pass at the end of the first half. Brown was used in all two-wide sets with Ace Sanders and Kerry Taylor. The Jaguars take on the Colts in Week 17.
Sun, Dec 22, 2013 05:08:00 PM

Mike Brown caught three passes for 20 yards in Week 15 against the Bills.

Brown was targeted seven times on the day but dropped one pass and remains off the fantasy radar. He was set up to have a bigger day with Cecil Shorts (groin) sidelined, but it wasn't in the cards. Brown and the Jaguars take on the Titans in Week 16. Leave Brown on the waiver wire.
Sun, Dec 15, 2013 07:12:00 PM

Mike Brown caught three passes for 16 yards in Jacksonville's Week 14 win over the Texans.

Brown's biggest contribution came on Jacksonville's opening drive, where he muffed what should have been an easy 16-yard touchdown. Brown ran as the Jaguars' No. 3 receiver behind Cecil Shorts and Ace Sanders. He's not on the WR5 radar for the fantasy playoffs.
Fri, Dec 6, 2013 12:37:00 AM

Mike Brown (shoulder) is listed as probable for Thursday night's Week 14 game against the Texans.

Brown is the No. 2 wideout in terms of snaps played, but he's behind both Cecil Shorts and Ace Sanders in the receiving pecking order. He's a WR5.
Wed, Dec 4, 2013 05:36:00 PM

Mike Brown played on 60-of-74 snaps in last week's win over the Browns.

Brown was the No. 2 wideout behind Cecil Shorts (73 snaps), but had just one catch on two targets. Meanwhile, rookie Ace Sanders piled up eight catches on 48 snaps. Sanders has passed Brown in terms of gameplan involvement.
Wed, Dec 4, 2013 08:42:00 AM

Mike Brown (shoulder) remained limited in Tuesday's practice.

Brown is in zero danger of missing Thursday night's game against the Texans. Despite regularly playing at least 80 percent of the offensive snaps weekly, Brown is no higher than the No. 3 option in the passing game. He's a WR5.
Tue, Dec 3, 2013 09:55:00 PM

Mike Brown caught a seven-yard pass in Week 13 at Cleveland.

Brown was targeted just two times on the afternoon. He's behind Ace Sanders and Cecil Shorts on the wide receiver depth chart and isn't anything more than a WR5 in fantasy land. Brown and the Jags host the Texans on Thursday night.
Sun, Dec 1, 2013 06:26:00 PM

Mike Brown (shoulder) is active for Week 13 against the Browns.

Brown missed last week's game against the Texans but is back after getting in limited practice sessions this week. At less than 100 percent, he's not a reliable fantasy option. Inactive for the Jaguars are DE Jeremy Mincey, QB Ricky Stanzi, WR Jeremy Ebert, WR Stephen Burton, RB Justin Forsett, CB Jamell Fleming, and OL Jacques McClendon.
Sun, Dec 1, 2013 11:32:00 AM

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley confirmed Mike Brown (shoulder) will be a game-time decision for Week 13.

Brown will go through pre-game warmups before the Jaguars make an official decision on his status. He practiced on a limited basis this week and is officially listed as questionable on the injury report.
