Mike Brown injury update: WR questionable, likely game-time decision for fantasy owners

The Jaguars wide receiver is listed as questionable and could miss Week 12. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Mike Brown (shoulder) is listed as questionable and is likely heading towards a game-time decision for the team's Week 12 game against the Houston Texans. Brown practiced on Friday after sitting out for the rest of the week.

Fantasy Impact: Brown could easily miss Week 12 and fantasy owners should have other options as his play has mainly translated to bye-week plug-and-play production at best. Brown did turn in a 5/120 performance in Week 7 but hasn't done much else noteworthy since. Cecil Shorts is the team's top receiving option. With their offense constantly in shambles, there usually aren't enough opportunities for Brown to produce for fantasy owners on a consistent basis.

Brown will face the underrated Texans' secondary on Sunday which has given up the fourth fewest points to wide receivers in PPR leagues. Last week, Chad Henne was only able to get his number one receiver Cecil Shorts the ball twice. Owners should have high expectations for Brown in Week 12. He's a low-end WR4 if he plays and owners should look to avoid his situation all together.
