WR - BUF - OUT
Week 7 Outlook
WR John Brown will not play in Sunday’s Week 7 contest against the Jets.
Brown did not practice this week and was ultimately ruled out for Week 7. He failed to catch a pass on four targets in Monday’s loss to the Chiefs. Brown might have aggravated his knee injury on Monday and the Bills are being cautious with their wide receiver. Look for Gabriel Davis to see an expanded role in three-wide receiver sets while Brown is sidelined.
Buffalo WR John Brown misses practice for a second straight day on Thursday with a knee injury.
Brown played in Week 6 without practicing, so this shouldn't be too alarming for fantasy managers rostering the speedy wideout. What should be alarming is the fact that Brown has recorded zero receptions in two of his last three games played. Add into the mix a game where he didn't play at all and there is a legit concern for his fantasy production moving forward. Brown has a great matchup this week versus the Jets, but until he shows that he is healthy, he should be treated more as a FLEX option than a WR2.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver John Brown missed Wednesday's practice with a knee injury.
While missed practices on Wednesday's have become the norm for Brown, a little extra attention is being paid here as there were reports that Brown was laboring while playing in Week 6 against the Chiefs. We may not see him take the practice field until Friday as the Bills look to play it safe with the speedster. His absence forces Andre Roberts into increased snaps, which is not good news for the Bills offense. We should have more clarity on his Week 7 status by Friday.
Bills coach Sean McDermott admits that WR John Brown (knee) wasn't 100 percent healthy in the team's Week 6 loss to the Chiefs.
Brown failed to catch a pass on four targets in the loss. It was clear watching that Brown wasn't healthy, and he now has a short week to get ready for the team's Week 7 matchup with the Jets. Fantasy managers who are currently counting on Brown as a starter might want to make backup plans. We'll monitor Buffalo's practice reports throughout the week.
John Brown didn't catch a pass in the Bills' 26-17 Week 6 loss to the Chiefs on Monday night.
He saw four targets. Buffalo's passing attack struggled in this one as Josh Allen threw for just 122 yards. Bad weather played a factor, but Allen was also off his game. Brown was able to draw a few penalties that helped move the chains, but those don't equate to fantasy points. Brown has a get-right matchup next Sunday against the lowly Jets.
