Josh Brown released on Tuesday

The New York Giants released K Josh Brown on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Brown, who was placed on the Commissioner Exempt list last week, was finally released by the Giants on Tuesday. The troubled placekicker "can sign with a team but will revert to the Commish Exempt list pending resolution of his matter" according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Brown has likely played his last down in the NFL.

Josh Brown placed on the Reserve/ Commissioner Exempt list

New York Giants K Josh Brown has been placed on the Reserve/ Commissioner Exempt list on Friday. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that Brown is still allowed at the Giants' facility (team permitting) and that he has three days to appeal his placement on the list.

Fantasy Impact

Brown was officially placed on the Commissioner Exempt list on Friday one day after learning that he will not travel with the team to London. On the list, Brown will still be paid by the Giants but is considered a frozen commodity until the league and/ or team make a decision on his future stemming from his latest domestic abuse allegations for acts toward his ex-wife, Molly Bown. The troubled kicker should be dropped in all fantasy football formats as his season and career are now in jeopardy.

Josh Brown not traveling to London for Week 7

New York Giants K Josh Brown will not travel with the team for Week 7's matchup against the Los Angeles Rams in London, England.

Fantasy Impact

After an avalanche of reports came about on Thursday referencing Brown's domestic violence issues with his ex-wife, the Giants elected not to have the kicker travel with the team to London, therefore ruling him out for Week 7. Brown will likely face an additional suspension from the NFL for these latest allegations and could be given his outright release from the team.

Josh Brown at practice despite purported admissions of domestic violence

Giants' K Josh Brown was at practice on Thursday despite purportedly admitting to domestic violence in letters, journals and email communications. According to Giants' beat writer Jordan Raanan, police believe Brown made highly disturbing statements/admissions in these communications.

Fantasy Impact

It is very possible the Giants will release Brown in light of these recent developments concerning Brown's alleged domestic violence. Brown was suspended for one game in Week 1, but these latest allegations, if proven true, would call into question the Giants' motivations/ethical obligations were they not to take some drastic action against him. For fantasy purposes, owners should be prepared to pick up a new K should the Giants take action before Sunday.

Josh Brown with a perfect day in the Giants' 27-23 win over the Ravens

Josh Brown was perfect in Week 6 against the Ravens, connecting on both of his field goal attempts, as well as on all three of his PATs.

Fantasy Impact

Brown remains a solid K option who should continue to get a number of FGAs from now through the end of the season. The Giants' offense looked better in Week 6 and, even if it starts to get going, the Giants will likely still have a tendency to stall in the red zone (if history is any measure). This would, of course, lead to multiple FGAs for the sure-footed Brown on a weekly basis.
