Expert Note

I warned fantasy managers last week that I didn't think Brown was going to play after tweaking his calf injury. There's no guarantee he plays this week either, as soft tissue injuries can linger. I'll pay attention to injury reports as we get closer and update you at the bottom of these notes. The matchup this week might make the decision to start or sit him easier, as the Chiefs have been among the best in the league at slowing down receivers. They dealt with some injuries/suspensions earlier in the year, but they've still allowed just the eighth-fewest points to the position. There have been four receivers who've topped 67 yards against them this year, but three of those receivers saw double-digit targets. Brown has seen just 13 targets over his last three games and would be coming off that soft tissue injury, creating additional concern. The lone positive is that the Bills have allowed 14.48 yards per reception to receivers, and Brown does have the deepest average depth of target on the team. If he plays, he'll be a risky WR4.

John Brown (knee) wasn't 100 percent healthy in Week 6

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.

Fantasy Impact

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.
