Bryce Brown is inactive for Week 2 against the Dolphins.
Brown is a healthy scratch for the second straight game. Anthony Dixon will continue to work as Buffalo's No. 3 back after rushing for 60 yards on five carries in Week 1. Brown remains a high-upside stash in deep leagues, but the Bills don't have an early-season role for him with everyone healthy. Buffalo's inactives are TE Lee Smith, RG Cyril Richardson, CB Ross Cockrell, RT Cyrus Kouandjio, S Jonathan Meeks, and LB Keith Rivers. Sep 14 - 11:46 AM

Bryce Brown is a healthy scratch for Week 1 against the Bears.

Brown is third in line for backfield touches in Buffalo, but fourth in line on the game-day depth chart due to Anthony Dixon's superior special teams value. Brown remains an intriguing RB5 stash in 12- and 14-team leagues. He would become an every-week starter if Fred Jackson or C.J. Spiller went down.
Sep 7 - 12:16 PM

Bryce Brown had two carries for 24 yards in Saturday's preseason game.

He added one catch for 18 yards. Buffalo's starters played into the third quarter, so Brown saw limited playing time. He got all of his work with the second- and third-team offenses. Brown was the No. 3 running back through the rotation this week. Anthony Dixon was active for the Bills, but didn't play any snaps. Brown is worth a flier in re-draft leagues as a handcuff for C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson owners.
Aug 23 - 8:36 PM

Bills coach Doug Marrone said he views RB Bryce Brown as a potential starter.

"In my mind Bryce Brown is a very talented running back that has the potential to start in the NFL," Marrone said "His production is not surprising for any of us." Brown is expected to spend this year behind C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson, but Marrone's comments suggest he views him as the long-term feature back. Spiller is a free agent after this season and 33-year-old Jackson is unlikely to be with Buffalo beyond 2015. Brown has dominated against third-stringers in the Bills' first two preseason games, rushing for 104 yards on 18 carries (5.8 YPC).
Aug 9 - 3:37 PM

Bryce Brown had 11 carries for 64 yards in Friday night's preseason game against the Panthers.

He added two catches for 18 yards. It's the second straight week Brown led the Bills in rushing. Brown has been working strictly with the third team behind C.J. Spiller, Fred Jackson, and Anthony Dixon. Brown remains an exciting talent, and we'd expect him to leapfrog Dixon on the depth chart in short order.
Aug 9 - 12:01 AM

Speaking Wednesday, Bills coach Doug Marrone said he was unlikely to go with a "three-headed" attack at running back, and wanted to stick with a two-man rotation.

"I’ve never been a guy that has three backs playing in the game," Marrone said. "I’ve always believed, and you guys know, in the two backs. It’ll come down to two backs; the two backs going in there." It's bad news for Bryce Brown, who's drawn hype as someone who could crash C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson's party. Brown's arrow is still pointing up in Dynasty leagues, but he'll likely need injury ahead of him to make a re-draft impact.
Aug 7 - 5:53 PM

Bryce Brown rushed seven times for 40 yards and caught two passes for 12 yards in Sunday night's Hall of Fame preseason game.

The good news is his touches were productive. The bad news is Brown was the No. 4 back through Buffalo's tailback rotation, playing behind Fred Jackson, C.J. Spiller, and Anthony Dixon. Brown is an attractive deep sleeper in the Bills' run-heavy offense, but he needs to begin climbing the depth chart.
Aug 4 - 11:53 AM

ESPN Bills reporter Mike Rodak believes the team "would like" Bryce Brown to "develop into one of their lead backs."

The Bills gave up a 2015 fourth-rounder that can become a third-rounder for Brown, a relatively high price to pay for a running back. Both C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson are entering the final years of their contracts. Spiller has injury red flags and may never become a true No. 1, while Jackson is 33 1/2 years old. Brown is 23, has a boatload of running talent, and is entering the league's run-heaviest offense. His Dynasty arrow is pointing straight up.
Jul 8 - 9:11 AM

Bills acquired RB Bryce Brown from the Eagles in exchange for a conditional 2015 fourth-round pick.

The teams also swapped 2014 seventh-round picks. Brown gets out of Philadelphia, where coach Chip Kelly wasn't particularly high on him. Brown has plenty of juice and running talent but has a tendency to bounce everything outside. In 32 games with the Eagles the past two seasons, he's rushed for 878 yards and six touchdowns on 190 carries (4.6 YPC). Fred Jackson is in the final year of his deal, while C.J. Spiller can opt out of his rookie contract next spring. Brown will serve as depth this season but could be in line for a bigger role come 2015.
May 10 - 12:50 PM

The Philadelphia Inquirer wonders if Bryce Brown will be traded on draft day.

We've had the same thoughts. Brown has shown flashes of starting-caliber NFL talent, but began losing backup snaps to Chris Polk last season and the Eagles have since added Darren Sproles. The Eagles could very well be willing to unload Brown for a sixth- or seventh-round pick.
Apr 24 - 9:25 AM

Eagles blogger Sheil Kapadia believes Chris Polk has a better shot at the No. 2 RB job than Bryce Brown in 2014.

Brown had an alarmingly disappointing season in 2013. Continuing to try to bounce virtually every run outside, he was stuffed for no gain or a loss 15 times on just 75 carries. If not for one 65-yard run against the Bears' historically bad rush defense, he would have averaged just 3.36 YPC despite running behind one of the game's premier offensive lines. Brown has plenty of game-breaking talent, but he might not be a fit for Chip Kelly. A trade ahead of May's draft would make sense.
Jan 29 - 9:59 AM

Bryce Brown did not touch the ball in Saturday's Wild Card loss to the Saints.

With the chips were down in the playoffs, the Eagles didn't mess around and take LeSean McCoy off the field. So for just the second time all year, Brown didn't get a single touch. The second-year back lost some backup passing-down duties to Chris Polk this season and continued his bad habit of stretching just about every run to the sideline, but his impressive big-play ability is undeniable. We're confident that if McCoy were to go down, Brown would step in as a legit RB1 -- making him a must-own handcuff in 2014.
Jan 5 - 1:25 AM

Bryce Brown had two carries for 11 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's Week 17 win over the Cowboys.

Brown was a non-factor in the first half, but scored on a six-yard run to give the Eagles an eight point lead late in the fourth quarter. It's the second straight week that Brown has found the end-zone after he ran for 115 yards on nine carries in Week 16. The Eagles primarily use a one-back scheme with LeSean McCoy, but Brown saw a slightly bigger role in the second half. He finishes the regular season with 75 carries for 314 yards (4.2 YPC) and two touchdowns. Brown should continue to see limited touches behind McCoy in Saturday's Wild Card game against the Saints.

Bryce Brown had nine carries for 115 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's Week 16 win over the Bears.

Brown was used in a change-of-pace role behind LeSean McCoy and got a goal-line carry in the third quarter, but failed to convert. His touchdown came on a 65-yard run down the right sideline in mop-up duty. It was an embarrassing performance from the Bears run defense, with all three of the Eagles' running backs getting into the end-zone this week. Brown is now averaging 4.2 yards-per-carry through 15 games.

Bryce Brown said his goal for the 2014 season is to be a No. 1 running back.

"That's obviously a goal of mine going into next year. I think I can," Brown said. "That's what I'm going to be working toward, whether I'm here or I'm somewhere else." That's obviously not going to happen in Philadelphia with LeSean McCoy entrenched as the starter. Brown has been a massive disappointment in coach Chip Kelly's offense, but a senior NFL scout believes Brown "has all of the tools to be an every-down back." Chris Polk has passed Brown on the depth chart in Philly, but the Eagles aren't going to simply cut 22-year-old Brown.
