RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

There was no outlook written for Zach Brown.

2017

A 2012 second-round pick, Brown was considered a bust prior to last year, but an age-26 breakout after leaving Tennessee for Buffalo rehabilitated his stock. Always an incredible athlete, Brown's instincts often failed him in the past, keeping him on the bench despite enticing per-snap statistical volume. With a career-high 980 snaps last year, Brown's stats exploded as he finally hit his potential. Now with the Redskins, even if his real-life play falters, Washington likely lacks the alternatives to consider benching him. The stats should stay.

2016

Brown’s fortunes took a turn for the better when the Bills’ 2016 second-round draft pick, Reggie Ragland, went down with a torn ACL early in training camp. Brown will likely be the main beneficiary of Ragland’s absence, and he is slated to assume the starting inside linebacker position alongside Preston Brown in Buffalo’s 3-4 scheme. The fifth-year man should see his snaps skyrocket, but there is no knowing for sure how much that will translate into fantasy production.

2015

Brown is a slight injury worry after suffering a torn pectoral muscle Week 1 last year, but his IDP upside is among the best when he's healthy. Brown runs a 4.4 40 at 245 pounds, giving him major playmaking upside both as a pass rusher and in coverage. Despite playing less than 750 snaps both years, Brown averaged 92 tackles, 4.5 sacks and two interceptions in his first two years, and he scored two defensive touchdowns, as well. He needs to earn a three-down role in a fairly crowded linebacker group to ensure maximum snaps, however.

2014

Consistency has been an issue with Brown going back to his days at North Carolina, so it wasn't shocking to see him follow up his exciting rookie season with uneven play in 2013. Blessed with 4.4 speed at around 245 pounds, Brown has shown the ability to make a huge impact in both coverage and the pass rush. He has 9.5 sacks in his first two seasons, along with four interceptions and two touchdowns, so his ceiling is rather high. Unfortunately, he'll remain a boom-or-bust pick in 2014 since his exact role in Tennessee's 3-4 defense is unclear. The Titans have all of Brown, Akeem Ayers, Wesley Woodyard and Zaviar Gooden as potential inside linebacker starters.

2013

It would seem at a glance as if Tennessee is crowded at linebacker, but a closer look hints at a big role for Brown in 2013 nonetheless. Akeem Ayers plays a limited snap count and splits his time between linebacker and defensive end, Colin McCarthy has a long history of injury troubles (12 games missed the last two years) and third-round pick Zaviar Gooden is a speedy linebacker whose skill set is redundant to Brown's. The Titans are in any case compelled to give Brown more work in 2013 after he posted 92 tackles, 5.5 sacks and three interceptions (two returned for touchdowns) in just 739 defensive snaps as a rookie.
