Buffalo Bills WR John Brown (foot) on Thursday, Sept. 24, was limited in practice by a foot issue.
Fantasy Spin: Brown ranks second on the team with 16 targets, 10 receptions and 152 yards and is a solid flex/WR3 option in Week 3 if healthy. Check his status Friday.
Buffalo Bills DE Mario Addison (rest), TE Dawson Knox (concussion), RB Zack Moss (toe) and LB Del'Shawn Phillips (quad) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 24. WR John Brown (foot), LB Tremaine Edmunds (shoulder), QB Jake Fromm (non-injury), CB Taron Johnson (groin), LB Matt Milano (hamstring) and DT Ed Oliver (knee) were limited. WR Cole Beasley (@, thumb) and CB Tre'Davious White (shoulder) practiced in full. DE Jerry Hughes (rest) was not given a practice designation Thursday after missing practice Wednesday, Sept. 23.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver John Brown has been overlooked because of the performance of Stefon Diggs, but made his presence known in Week 2. Brown finished with four receptions on six targets for 82 yards and one touchdown in the victory over the Miami Dolphins. This is the second straight week that Brown has been able to find the end zone. He caught a 46-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter to put the Bills up 31-20. He'll get a tougher matchup against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 3. He should be able to be counted on as a WR3 in PPR leagues.
Buffalo Bills WR John Brown posted four receptions for 82 yards and a touchdown on six targets in Week 2 against the Miami Dolphins.
Fantasy Spin: Brown, who hails from nearby Homestead, Fla., certainly had a little extra excitement on that TD near his hometown. He is a solid WR3/4 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 3 against the Los Angeles Rams.
Buffalo Bills WR John Brown (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.
Fantasy Spin: Brown is still a big part of the passing game despite the addition of Stefon Diggs and will see a solid amount of targets against the Miami Dolphins. Brown can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Buffalo Bills LBs Matt Milano (hamstring), Tremaine Edmunds (shoulder) and Del'Shawn Phillips (quadriceps) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 18, and were ruled out of the team's Week 2 game Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. LB , QB Jake Fromm (non-injury) was limited in practice Friday but does not carry a designation on the Week 2 injury report, DE Jerry Hughes (calf), WR Isaiah McKenzie (hamstring), WR John Brown (foot), DT Vernon Butler (hamstring) and LB Tyrel Dodson (neck) practiced in full and are not listed on the injury report.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver John Brown (foot) returned to practice on Thursday after sitting out on Wednesday. Barring a setback, Brown should be expected to suit up in Week 2 against the Dolphins. The 30-year-old had six catches on a team-high 10 targets for 70 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Jets, but he should see a lot of cornerback Byron Jones this Sunday. Brown beat Miami for three touchdowns in his two meetings with them last year, but things might be a bit more difficult this time around. Don't forget that Stefon Diggs is Buffalo's top wideout. Treat Brown as a WR3/flex this week and don't expect a repeat of his Week 1 numbers.
Buffalo Bills WR John Brown (foot) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 17.
Fantasy Spin: Brown is on track to play in the Week 2 game and will continue to be a main part of the passing game for the Bills. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues this week.
Buffalo Bills LB Matt Milano (hamstring) and LB Del'Shawn Phillips (quad) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 17. LB Tremaine Edmunds (shoulder), QB Jake Fromm (non-injury), DE Jerry Hughes (calf) and WR Isaiah McKenzie (hamstring) were limited. WR John Brown (foot), DT Vernon Butler (hamstring) and LB Tyrel Dodson (neck) practiced in full.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver John Brown (foot) was held out of Wednesday's practice. He was on the field for almost every snap during their Week 1 victory over the New York Jets. Brown hauled in six of his 10 targets for 70 yards and one touchdown in that contest. However, the Bills are in danger of being without their deep threat for this one. Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis could gain some fantasy value, assuming Brown sits out. They might be able to have some low-end flex value, but would probably be better used in deep leagues. Fantasy owners will have to check back later in the week for another update on Brown.
Buffalo Bills WR John Brown (foot) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 16.
Fantasy Spin: It is not known if Brown is dealing with a significant injury, so fantasy players should monitor his practice participation during the week. He is coming off a successful Week 1 performance and should be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver if he plays.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver John Brown was fairly impressive during the Week 1 win over the New York Jets. He hauled in six receptions for 70 yards and one touchdown. Brown could've had a second touchdown, but quarterback Josh Allen overthrew him. He probably won't see a ton of targets with Stefon Diggs in the mix. However, Brown can be a useful WR3 depending on the matchup. He could be worth looking at versus the Miami Dolphins next week.
Buffalo Bills WR John Brown caught six passes for 70 yards and one touchdown against the New York Jets in Week 1. He was targeted 10 times during the game.
Fantasy Spin: Brown showed he will still be a popular target in the passing game even with the addition of Stefon Diggs. Brown has good chemistry with Josh Allen and can be at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues next week.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver John Brown will be the No. 2 option going forward with Stefon Diggs joining the team. Despite that, his fantasy value should remain about the same as it was before. He'll kick off the season with a matchup against the New York Jets. A team that heavily struggled at defending the deep ball last season. Quarterback Josh Allen loves throwing deep, so this should be an excellent matchup for the Bills receivers. Brown will have WR2 value for this one, but has good upside, assuming he can catch a few deep balls.
Buffalo Bills WR John Brown's production will be helped and not hurt by the addition of WR Stefon Diggs, according to QB Josh Allen. 'I think this is going to give him an opportunity to have more chances to catch the ball,' Allen said. 'Man-to-man, he's extremely tough to cover.'
Fantasy Spin: While the addition of Diggs is going to cut into his targets, less attention from opposing defenses could mean more big-play opportunities for Brown. Still, he will likely drop from the WR2 ranks to more of a boom-or-bust WR3.
Buffalo Bills WR John Brown caught 10-of-26 deep targets from QB Josh Allen in 2019, resulting in a 38.5 completion percentage and 109.5 passer rating on those throws. All the other Bills combined to catch four of Allen's 37 deep pass attempts, greatly contributing to Allen's league-worst 22.2 percent completion rate on deep passes last season.
Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen worked out with several of the team's pass catchers in Florida Thursday, May 28, including WR Stefon Diggs. RB Devin Singletary, WRs John Brown, Isaiah McKenzie, Nick Easley, WR Gabriel Davis and Isaiah Hodgins and TEs Dawson Knox, Tommy Sweeney, Jason Croom and Nate Becker were among the players participating in the workout.
Fantasy Spin: The Bills have not been able to practice this offseason, so Allen and his teammates have begun working out together. Allen is coming off a solid 2019 season and should be helped with the addition of Diggs. He should be at least a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.
Buffalo Bills WR John Brown ranks third in the league since 2015 with an average depth of target of 15.9 yards.
Fantasy Spin: In his first year in Buffalo, Brown returned to the WR2 ranks (No. 19) for the first time since 2015 as he hit career highs in targets (115), receptions (72) and receiving yards (1,060) in 2019. The Bills, though, traded for WR Stefon Diggs this offseason, and that pushes Brown back down into more boom-or-bust territory. Consider him a low-end WR3 at best.
