Tennessee Titans second-year wideout A.J. Brown has officially been ruled out for Week 2. He suffered a bone bruise to his knee that could keep him out for more than just this week.

A.J. Brown Injury Update

While Brown's fantasy managers probably expected this outcome for at least Week 2, Corey Davis and Adam Humphries' managers stand to gain a lot from Brown's absence.

Corey Davis Fantasy Outlook

Davis matched Brown in targets in Week 1, and stands to gain a good portion of those in Week 2. He already put together a great game, hauling in 7 catches for 101 yards, and with Brown out of the picture in Week 2, you can expect an uptick in targets. While he is going up against a Jaguars secondary that did a solid job against the Colts in Week 1, volume is king here.

Adam Humphries Fantasy Outlook

Davis won't be the only beneficiary though. Adam Humphries should see a decent uptick as well. He had 6 catches in Week 1, second only to Davis. You have to imagine Tannehill will be leaning on him that much more with the athletic Brown now sidelined.
