Bryce Brown, RB, Bills
|RB - #94||221.00||BUF||Probable||3 years||24||6'0||223|
2015 Outlook:Last updated on Aug-20-2015 by Shawn Childs
Brown has been in the league for three years. He flashed high upside in 2012 when he rushed for 347 yards and four TDs in two games while filling in for McCoy in Philadelphia. Last year, Bryce had a great opportunity to earn more playing time while C.J. Spiller was hurt, but he averaged just 3.5 yards per carry. He did catch 13 passes over a two-game span during the middle portion of the season, but he totaled just 52 touches for the year. In his two seasons with McCoy in Philly, Bryce took 211 touches for 1,018 yards and six touchdowns. He has enough talent to be Buffalo's backup RB this year.
SCOUT Fantasy: 3. Last year, we thought Bryce Brown would emerge as a deep sleeper, were we a year early on that call or will he remain the odd man out behind McCoy and Fred Jackson?
Talbot: Bryce Brown seemed like the best breakout option among Buffalo's running backs before the McCoy trade, but now it'd be a surprise if he even makes the roster. Jackson will be the team's No. 2 running back and Anthony Dixon will probably be the team's third running back. Dixon is more likely to beat out Brown for a roster spot due to his ability to play on special teams. Last, Buffalo drafted Karlos Williams in the NFL draft. Williams may now be the long-term 'sleeper' of the group due to McCoy's workload, Jackson's age and Dixon's inability to be an every down back.
Buffalo Bills running back Karlos Williams participated in individual drills today for the first time since undergoing an undisclosed procedure, which was cause by an undisclosed illness. Rex Ryan muttered at one point that it was in a sensitive area, make of that what you will. Williams was always expected to be ready for Week 1 and could lead the backfield if LeSean McCoy can't play.Fantasy Analysis:
Williams is a very talented rookie and is far superior to Bryce Brown and Boobie Dixon. The only reason Brown is even on the team is because general manager Doug Whaley inexplicably gave up a draft pick for him and his ego caused him to cut the much better Fred Jackson instead of Brown. Dixon is a plodder. Look for Williams to play a significant role this season.
