Jaron Brown: Likely leaving Seattle

Brown isn't likely to re-sign with Seattle, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Analysis: Brown signed a two-year, $5.5 million contract during the 2018 offseason and made it through both years of his deal. He started six of his 30 regular-season games and averaged just 24.2 offensive snaps per contest, catching 30 of 47 targets for 386 yards and seven touchdowns. Brown isn't likely to find a top-three WR role as a 30-year-old free agent, but his ability to contribute on special teams and in the red zone could lead to some interest for a depth job. Meanwhile, the Seahawks don't have a clear No. 3 behind Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf, with options from the current roster including David Moore, Malik Turner, John Ursua and perhaps eventually Josh Gordon (suspension).

Jaron Brown: Limited usage all year

Brown, who wasn't targeted in the Sunday's 28-23 playoff loss to the Packers, finished with 16 catches for 220 yards and two touchdowns over 14 regular-season games.

Analysis: Brown started the season as a starter but slowly saw his usage disintegrate as David Moore got healthy and Malik Turner took on additional duties. The 30-year-old Brown didn't play more than 11 offensive snaps over the last five regular-season contests, and he logged just nine in the only playoff game he played. He'll be an unrestricted free agent in March, and even if the team re-signs him, Brown won't be on fantasy radars in 2020.

Jaron Brown: Ready for divisional round

Brown (knee) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's divisional-round game in Green Bay, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: The same can be said for fellow wideout Malik Turner, who passed all the phases of the concussion protocol. Brown thus should be active this weekend, but his opportunities could be few and far between due to the receiving corps getting back to full capacity.

Jaron Brown: Full participant Thursday

Brown (knee) was a full participant on Thursday's injury report, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Brown sprained his knee during the regular-season finale, and while he was downgraded to out in advance of the Seahawks' wild-card win at Philadelphia, his absence eventually was chalked up to a personal matter. With a full practice under his belt this week, he's poised to work as a periphery option in Seattle's passing attack Sunday in Green Bay but could see a few more snaps if Malik Turner doesn't get through the concussion protocol.

Jaron Brown: Limited participant Wednesday

Brown (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Brown missed the wild-card win over the Saints, but Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reported Monday that Brown sat out to tend to a personal matter, and his knee isn't a major issue. However, Brown still isn't back to full speed, but he's still expected to be ready for Sunday's divisional-round game versus the Packers.

Jaron Brown: Should return for divisional round

Brown (knee/personal) is expected to play in Sunday's divisional-round game versus the Packers, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: According to Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle, Brown's knee isn't considered a major issue anymore, and he missed the wild-card win versus the Eagles while tending to a personal matter. If he puts in a full practice Wednesday, it'll extinguish all doubt about Brown's status. His usage Sunday will likely be minimal, especially if Malik Turner (concussion) is active as well.

Jaron Brown: Missing playoff clash

Brown (knee) was downgraded to out for Sunday's wild-card game against the Eagles.

Analysis: Brown was originally slated to miss a few weeks with the knee sprain, but was surprisingly listed as questionable for the game Friday. Brown's absence paves the way for David Moore and John Ursua to see a slight uptick in depth receiver reps behind usual starters Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf.

Jaron Brown: Listed as questionable for playoff opener

Brown (knee/personal) is listed as questionable for Sunday's playoff game against the Eagles, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times previously suggested the Brown could miss a few weeks, so it's a little surprising to see the wideout listed as questionable. Either way, Brown's impact in the Seattle offense has been limited of late, with just two of his 16 catches on the season having occurred after Oct. 20.

Jaron Brown: Set to miss time

Brown is expected to miss "a few weeks" while dealing with a knee sprain, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Analysis: This news puts Brown's chances to suit up in the Seahawks' first playoff game Sunday severely in jeopardy. He's yet to officially be ruled out, but his absence will certainly hurt the team in Saturday's game against the Eagles. His absence will open the door for David Moore and John Ursua to see a slight uptick in depth snaps at receiver.

Jaron Brown: Injury details revealed

Brown suffered a knee sprain during Sunday's 26-21 loss to the 49ers, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Brown played just three offensive snaps before leaving the contest, and now his status is in jeopardy for the Seahawks' first playoff game Sunday against the Eagles. The 29-year-old is used sparingly on offense anyway, but with Malik Turner dealing with a concussion, Brown's depth could be useful. If he's indeed ruled out for Sunday, rookie John Ursua could garner additional snaps in the slot again.

Jaron Brown: Hurts knee in Week 17

Brown injured his knee in the first quarter of Sunday's game against the 49ers and won't return, Seahawks digital media reporter John Boyle reports.

Analysis: Seattle's receiving corps will be one member short for the remainder of the season finale. Brown finishes the 2019 regular season with 16 catches for 220 yards and two touchdowns.

Jaron Brown: Snags pass in win

Brown gained nine yards on his only target of Sunday's 30-24 win over Carolina.

Analysis: Sunday's reception was just Brown's second since Week 7 as he's been deemphasized in the Seattle offense. It'd be foolish to count on the veteran target to turn it around this late in the season, but he does have a favorable matchup heading into Sunday. He and the Seahawks will be taking on Browns' old team, the Cardinals, owners of the league's worst pass defense and against whom Brown caught three passes for 50 yards in Week 4.

Jaron Brown: Suiting up Monday

Brown is active for Monday's game against the Vikings, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Analysis: Brown was a healthy scratch for the last two games but will have a chance to suit up Monday. The 29-year-old is buried on the depth chart with the team's other wide receivers currently healthy, so he's unlikely to find much involvement in the offense versus Minnesota.

December 2, 2019 4:10 PM EST

Jaron Brown: Healthy scratch again

Brown (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's tilt against the Eagles.

Analysis: Brown will miss a second straight game as a healthy scratch. With the addition of Josh Gordon to Seattle's wide receiver corps, it appears that Brown doesn't factor into the team's plans on offense.

Jaron Brown: Scores twice in win

Brown caught three of five targets for 29 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 32-28 win over the Browns.

Analysis: To the dismay of Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf's fantasy owners, Brown flashed his knack for turning a low reception total into an impressive stat line. Last season, Brown scored five touchdowns over four games where he combined for just seven catches. His fantasy value still is tough to depend on, as these were Brown's first scores of the year, and he hasn't topped three receptions or 50 yards in any game this season,

Jaron Brown: Hauls in two passes

Brown caught two of four targets for 36 yards in Thursday's 30-29 win over the Rams.

Analysis: Brown tied with Tyler Lockett and Will Dissly for the team lead in targets, as Russell Wilson spread the ball out to eight different pass-catchers. However, he saw his snap count drop to a season-low 23 of a possible 74 offensive snaps. Both David Moore and Malik Turner weren't far behind with 17 each, so it looks like the Seahawks are using a timeshare in the No. 3 spot behind Lockett and D.K. Metcalf.

October 4, 2019 12:15 PM EST

Jaron Brown: Registers 50 yards

Brown caught all three targets for 50 yards in Sunday's 27-10 win over the Cardinals.

Analysis: After failing to garner a target over the first to games, Brown has three catches in back-to-back contests. He may have a legitimate argument to push David Moore for the No. 3 wideout spot, but he'll need to continue to prove it during Thursday night's divisional matchup versus the Rams.

September 29, 2019 7:56 PM EST

Jaron Brown: First reception of season

Brown caught three of six targets for 38 yards in Sunday's 33-27 loss to the Saints.

Analysis: Brown didn't garner a target through the first two games, but that took a quick turnaround in this contest. Still, Brown didn't catch a pass until it was garbage time. His fantasy value remains minimal, especially with David Moore showing promise in his first game back from a shoulder injury.

September 22, 2019 6:28 PM EST

Jaron Brown: Cleared for Week 3

Brown (toe) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's contest against the Saints, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Brown has been limited by a toe issue this week, but it won't impact his availability for Week 3. The bigger threat to his role is the imminent season debut of David Moore, who has recovered from a fractured humerus bone suffered Aug. 22. Behind Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf, Brown and Moore are the most likely candidates to profit in this receiving corps.

September 20, 2019 1:30 PM EST

Jaron Brown: Limited in practice Wednesday

Brown (toe) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: This is a new injury for Brown, but it doesn't seem too concerning since he's still practicing in some capacity. Despite playing 75 percent of possible offensive snaps over the first two weeks, Brown hasn't been targeted by Russell Wilson yet. If he's able to suit up Sunday versus the Saints, he could be demoted to the No. 4 wideout role with Davis Moore (shoulder) trending toward his season debut.
