Buffalo Bills WR John Brown (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Brown missed time because of an injury and being on the COVID-19 list but appears to be on track to play in Week 17. He should see a decent amount of targets this week and can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in most leagues.

Buffalo Bills WR John Brown was activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Jan. 1.
Huddle Up: Brown may not play a whole lot in Week 17, and he's not worth starting against the Miami Dolphins.

Buffalo Bills WR John Brown (ankle) is not expected to be activated in time to play in Week 16 against the New England Patriots, according to a source, which added Brown has a 'better chance' at returning in Week 17 versus the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: It's unlikely many fantasy owners in their fantasy championship game were waiting on this news, but here it is. The Bills will reclaim the No. 2 seed in the AFC with a win against the Patriots, but they'll need another victory versus the Dolphins to guarantee themselves that spot in the playoffs. In other words, Buffalo will not hesitate to fire up Brown if it feels like it needs him in Week 17. Stefon Diggs, Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis will get their usual complement of snaps Monday night.

Buffalo Bills WR John Brown (ankle) is out for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Gabriel Davis has touchdowns in three straight games and four of five. He'll be a flex option against the Denver Broncos.

Buffalo Bills WR John Brown (ankle) was designated for return from the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Dec. 15.

Buffalo Bills WR John Brown (ankle) is expected to return to practice this week and is eligible to be activated from the Reserve/Injured list ahead of Week 15 versus the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: The Bills have been getting by just fine without Brown lately, but there's also no question he has proven himself to be a very serviceable complement to Stefon Diggs. Including Week 10 - the game in which left early in the fourth quarter with the ankle injury - the 30-year-old speedster recorded 14 catches on 19 targets for 171 yards in his last seven quarters of action. If he is activated for Saturday's game, fantasy owners could do much worse than firing him up as a high-upside WR3.

Buffalo Bills WR John Brown (ankle) on Saturday, Nov. 28, was placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a high-ankle sprain.
Huddle Up: It's been a frustrating season for Brown and his fantasy owners as the wideout has produced as a healthy cog in the Bills' high-powered passing offense, but has missed two games and has left early/been hampered in three others that produced a combined total of 3.1 PPR points. Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis are the obvious fantasy beneficiaries with Brown out.

Buffalo Bills WR John Brown (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Cole Beasley had an 11-109-1 line before the bye week, and he figures to be a PPR WR2 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Buffalo Bills WR John Brown (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 26. The Bills did not hold a practice Thursday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Brown appears to be in danger of missing the Week 12 game, but fantasy players will know more about his status in the next day or two. He can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option if he plays, but fantasy players may need other options available.
Posted: 11/25/2020 8:46 pm UTC
Buffalo Bills WR John Brown (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.
Huddle Up: Brown usually receives Wednesdays off, so fantasy players will need to check on his status later in the week. He has recorded 14 receptions and 171 yards over the last two games and can be a No. 3 receiver in most leagues.
