Panthers | Corey Brown may be on roster bubble

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 13:45:57 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Corey Brown could be on the roster bubble if he continues to struggle with dropped passes during the final preseason game. Brown dropped two touchdown passes over the last two games and dropped three passes in the last game.

Fantasy Tip: Brown could have a solid role in the passing game if he is able to fix his problem because the team lost Kelvin Benjamin for the season. Brown probably should not be selected in drafts but could be a waiver wire option during the season if he makes the team.

Panthers | Corey Brown struggles with drops

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 06:13:36 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Corey Brown dropped four passes during the preseason game against the New England Patriots Friday, Aug. 28. Three drops were on the same drive, which included a would-be touchdown on a deep ball and an end-zone target. Head coach Ron Rivera said Brown needed to stop putting pressure on himself to replace WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) after the game. "To replace Benjamin is going to be a unit job, not a one-man job," Rivera added.

Fantasy Tip: Brown also dropped two passes last week, so while there may be a clear opportunity for the sophomore, he isn't doing his part to grab the ball and run with it. Brown is nothing more than a late-round flier in most leagues. Rookie Devin Funchess (hamstring) is looking more and more like the receiver to target from Carolina, but he will likely be inconsistent from week to week, especially with Rivera continuing to preach the group effort to replace Benjamin's targets and production from last season.

Panthers | Corey Brown has improved

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 11:32:32 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Corey Brown has improved his route-running and has grasped the offense better this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Brown has a lot more value with Kelvin Benjamin out for the season. It's hard to tell right just how much he'll be used or how much Cam Newton will look his way, but he is now a sleeper.

Panthers | Corey Brown could step up

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 19:16:11 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Corey Brown, formerly known as Philly, could see an expanded role in the offense following the loss of WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee). However, he is expected to be rather inconsistent at times and he lacks the size that Benjamin has.

Fantasy Tip: Brown might not necessarily be a great option in standard fantasy formats, but he is someone to keep an eye on from time to time in FantasyScore, as he could exploit certain defenses for big performances.

Panthers | WR depth shaken up in Carolina

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 16:00:56 -0700

Carolina Panthers WRs Corey Brown and Jerricho Cotchery are currently the top two wide receivers on Carolina's depth chart, according to Steve Reed of the Associated Press.

Fantasy Tip: Of course, Devin Funchess should eventually prove himself as the top fantasy option for the Panthers. Brown and Cotchery are worth adding in fantasy leagues, but it will be a risk to start them on a weekly basis.

Panthers | Corey Brown expanding his game

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 18:42:14 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Corey Brown has developed into more than just a deep threat, according to TE Greg Olsen. "Last year at this time, Corey was a guy where we said, 'Wow, he's fast.' This year he is a receiver," Olsen said. "The guy can play. He's not just a one-trick pony, a guy who is just going to run deep. He has a lot of natural instinct to him. He has a good feel."

Fantasy Tip: Brown has big-play speed, and while he may be developing into a more complete receiver, he is unlikely to steal many looks with big targets like Kelvin Benjamin, Greg Olsen and Devin Funchess in town. He is final-round flier at best in seasonal leagues, but he could make a nice high-risk, high-reward gamble in DFS games if one of Carolina's top receivers happens to miss a game during the year.

Panthers | Corey Brown could be deep threat

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 19:06:13 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Corey Brown (formerly known as Philly Brown) has big-play speed and he has run more precise routes during offseason workouts. He has developed a nice rapport with QB Cam Newton and he could potentially be a deep threat, more so than WR Ted Ginn Jr.

Fantasy Tip: Brown has the potential to be a breakout candidate in 2015, but risking anything more than a pick after Round 13 or so would be foolish at this point. Watch to see him perform in training camp and the preseason before bumping him up on your cheat sheets.

Panthers | Philly Brown gained muscle, speed

Thu, 28 May 2015 18:36:50 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Philly Brown said Thursday, May 28, he's gained 10 pounds and is faster.

Fantasy Tip: Brown had 21 receptions for 296 yards and two touchdowns in his rookie season. The Panthers added plenty of bodies to their receiving corps, but Brown could emerge as the deep threat.

Panthers | Philly Brown ready for bigger role

Thu, 12 Feb 2015 18:10:54 -0800

Carolina Panthers WR Philly Brown became a part of three-receiver sets in Week 11, and he said he expects to make even more plays next season.

Fantasy Tip: Brown's biggest asset is his speed, and he became a big-play threat for the Panthers late last season. Carolina will likely continue to use him to stretch the field in 2015, but he is unlikely to see the consistent targets needed to provide worthwhile fantasy numbers.

Panthers | Philly Brown questionable

Fri, 09 Jan 2015 12:55:53 -0800

Carolina Panthers WR Philly Brown (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 9, and is listed as questionable for the Divisional Round playoff game.

Fantasy Tip: Brown's status for the game is still in question, so owners will need to check the inactive list. Brown has not been a big role in the passing game over the last several weeks and probably should not be a great option on FantasyScore at $3,300.
