Player Notes
Oct 19 9:40pm ET

Buffalo Bills wide receiver John Brown returned after a one game absence, but it looks like he took this game off as well. Brown failed to haul in all of his four targets during the Week 6 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Quarterback Josh Allen had a tough time connecting with his receivers in this one. However, both Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley found the end zone. Brown should have WR4 upside against the New York Jets next week.

From RotoBaller

Oct 19 9:23pm ET

Buffalo Bills WR John Brown was targeted four times during the Week 6 game against the Kansas City Chiefs but finished with zero receptions.

Fantasy Spin: The Bills were playing in inclement weather and did not have a lot of success in the passing game, so Brown was held without a catch. He should have more success next week and can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Oct 19 4:03pm ET

Buffalo Bills WR John Brown (knee) is active for Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Spin: This was expected despite Brown being listed as questionable on the injury report. Assuming he doesn't suffer an in-game setback, Brown is a strong bet to see at least five to seven targets in a game that could turn into a shootout.

From TheHuddle

Oct 19 3:50pm ET

Buffalo Bills running back Zach Moss (toe) is active for Monday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs. T.J. Yeldon is inactive, suggesting that Moss is good to play at least somewhat of a role against K.C. Wide receiver John Brown (knee) is also playing and should see plenty of playing time, though is likely to trail behind Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley in snaps. Neither Moss nor Brown are great options in season-long leagues, though Moss has appeal due to his projected role in the red zone.

From RotoBaller

Oct 17 4:43pm ET

Buffalo Bills WR John Brown (knee) was a limited participant at practice Saturday, Oct. 17, and is questionable for the game Monday, Oct. 19, against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Spin: Fantasy managers will need to go ahead with another option on Sunday's slate if unable to add a backup option for Monday. Brown could be a WR3/FLEX option if active.

From TheHuddle

Oct 16 5:13pm ET

Buffalo Bills WR John Brown (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 16.

Fantasy Spin: Brown has been targeted at least five times in three of the four games this season and should receive a similar workload this week against the Kansas City Chiefs. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Oct 16 4:23pm ET

Buffalo Bills TE Dawson Knox did not practice for a second consecutive day Friday, Oct. 16. QB Jake Fromm (non-injury), OG Quinton Spain (foot) and LB Tremaine Edmunds (shoulder) were limited. QB Josh Allen (shoulder), WR John Brown (knee), LB Matt Milano (pectoral), RB Zack Moss (toe) and CB Tre'Davious White (back) practiced in full.

From TheHuddle

Oct 16 2:30pm ET

Buffalo Bills wide receiver John Brown (knee) was able to fully practice on Thursday. That means that Brown should be able to suit up for the Week 6 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday night. He has unable to play last week, but it appears to be only a one-game absence for Brown. Gabriel Davis should see his workload decrease with Brown back on the field. This game is projected to be a shootout between two strong offenses. Fantasy owners should throw Brown into the WR3 conversation for Week 6.

From RotoBaller

Oct 15 4:23pm ET

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR John Brown (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 15.

Fantasy Spin: Brown sat out the last game because of the injury but appears to be on track to play in Week 6. He has been a significant part of the passing game this season and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Oct 15 3:33pm ET

Buffalo Bills TE Dawson Knox (calf) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 15. QB Jake Fromm (non-injury), LB Matt Milano (pectoral) and CB Tre'Davious White (back) were limited. QB Josh Allen (shoulder), WR John Brown (knee), RB Zack Moss (toe) and OG Quinton Spain (foot) practiced in full.

From TheHuddle

Oct 15 1:13pm ET

Buffalo Bills WR John Brown (knee, calf) took part in the team's light practice Thursday, Oct. 15 without helmets or pads.

Fantasy Spin: Brown, who's essentially missed two of the team's last three games and hasn't been a fantasy factor since Week 2, took a positive step Thursday but will need to show more in upcoming workouts this week before he can be considering a fantasy starting option.

From TheHuddle

Oct 13 6:10pm ET

Buffalo Bills wide receiver John Brown (calf) will miss Tuesdays game against Tennessee, marking his first absence of the season. Brown has been hampered by a calf injury, with Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley likely to see larger roles in the passing game with Brown out of the mix. After seeing 10 targets in Week 1, Browns presence in the offense has fluctuated despite quarterback Josh Allens evolving success. For those that banked on Browns presence in season-long formats, Beasley is available in nearly 68 percent of ESPN leagues as a last-minute pivot. Browns next opportunity to return to the field comes next Monday versus Kansas City, with less than a week to get healthy.

From RotoBaller

Oct 13 6:03pm ET

The Buffalo Bills have declared QB Jake Fromm, WR John Brown, RB Zack Moss, CB Tre'Davious White, LB Matt Milano, OG Quinton Spain and TE Lee Smith inactive for Week 5.

From TheHuddle

Oct 10 3:13pm ET

Buffalo Bills LB Matt Milano (pectoral) did not participate in practice Saturday, Oct. 10 and was ruled out for the team's Week 5 game Tuesday. CB Tre'Davious White (back) also did not practice Saturday and is listed as questionable for the game. WR Andre Roberts (ankle), OG Brian Winters (knee), WR John Brown (knee, calf) and OG Cody Ford (groin) were limited Saturday and are listed as questionable. QB Jake Fromm (non-injury) also was limited but does not carry a Week 5 status designation. , RB Zack Moss (toe) and LB Del'Shawn Phillips (quadriceps) practiced in full and are listed as questionable. QB Josh Allen (left shoulder) and WR Cole Beasley (foot) also practiced in full and were not given a status designation.

From TheHuddle

Oct 10 2:53pm ET

Buffalo Bills WR John Brown (knee, calf) was a limited participant in practice Saturday, Oct. 10, and is listed as questionable for the team's Week 5 game Tuesday against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Spin: Brown played through the injury in Week 4, catching 4-of-5 targets for 42 yards, but appeared to tweak his leg during practice this week. Normally, he'd be a flex start consideration, but it's far from a normal week given the injury and the scheduled Tuesday night game. Roll with another option if at all possible this week.

From TheHuddle

Oct 9 4:43pm ET

Buffalo Bills WR John Brown (calf) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 9. The Bills did not hold a practice Friday, so this is an estimation.

Fantasy Spin: Brown appeared to have aggravated his injury during practice this week, so his status for Week 5 is uncertain. Since the Bills are not scheduled to play until Tuesday, Oct. 13, fantasy players could consider keeping Brown on the bench.

From TheHuddle

Oct 9 3:23pm ET

Buffalo Bills LB Matt Milano (pectoral), WR Andre Roberts (ankle), CB Tre'Davious White (back) and OG Brian Winters (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 9. WR John Brown (calf), OG Cody Ford (groin), QB Jake Fromm (non-injury) and RB Zack Moss (toe) were limited. WR Cole Beasley (foot), LB Del'Shawn Phillips (quad) and QB Josh Allen (shoulder) practiced in full. DEs Jerry Hughes (non-injury) and Mario Addison (non-injury) were not given a practice designation. The Bills did not practice Friday, so the report is an estimation.

From TheHuddle

Oct 8 4:23pm ET

Buffalo Bills WR John Brown (calf) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 8.

Fantasy Spin: Brown may have injured his calf over the last day, which may hurt his chances to play in Week 5. He is also a risky option because the team's game against the Tennessee Titans could be moved or postponed. Brown has played well so far this season and can be at least a No. 3 receiver if he plays.

From TheHuddle

Oct 8 3:23pm ET

Buffalo Bills DE Mario Addison (rest), LB Matt Milano (pectoral), WR Andre Roberts (ankle), CB Tre'Davious White (back) and OG Brian Winters (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 8. WR John Brown (calf), OG Cody Ford (groin), QB Jake Fromm (non-injury) and RB Zack Moss (toe) were limited. QB Josh Allen (shoulder), WR Cole Beasley (foot) and LB Del'Shawn Phillips (quad) practiced in full. DE Jerry Hughes (rest) was not given a practice designation.

From TheHuddle

Oct 8 1:33pm ET

Buffalo Bills WR John Brown (calf) practiced Thursday, Oct. 8 after missing the previous day, but did come up hobbling and had to be attended to on the sideline after making a catch during the end of the media session.

Fantasy Spin: Brown played last week through the injury but posted a so-so four-catch, 42-yard stat line on five targets. His condition will need to be monitored as he's a solid WR3/flex play candidate for Week 5.
