Buffalo Bills WR John Brown is expected to start opposite newly acquired WR Stefon Diggs, as the latter was added in a trade with the Minnesota Vikings Monday, March 16.
Huddle Up: The news is bad for Brown, who was the top receiver threat in Buffalo in 2019. His targets and overall statistics are likely to take a hit as long as Diggs is healthy and on the field. Brown posted 72 catches, 1,016 yards and six touchdowns last season, but he figures to fall back into that 600-800 yard range, still with several scores, but a catch total of perhaps 45-55 instead of 72.

Buffalo Bills WR John Brown has been declared inactive for the team's Week 17 game.
Huddle Up: Brown will not be in the lineup since the Bills have nothing to play for this week. Duke Williams, Isaiah McKenzie and Robert Foster should serve as the top three receivers for the Bills this week. They could be flex options in leagues but probably will be avoided in most leagues.

Buffalo Bills WR John Brown caught one pass for 53 yards and a touchdown Saturday, Dec. 21, at the New England Patriots in Week 16. He ran once for three yards.
Huddle Up: Draped by CB Stephon Gilmore most of the night, Brown was held to just the one grab but obviously made it count. In Week 17, he is a much safer WR2 fantasy play at home vs. the New York Jets.

Buffalo Bills WR John Brown hauled in seven of his 10 targets for 99 yards in Week 15 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Brown had been mostly kept in check over the previous three games, topping out with 39 yards and a touchdown in Week 12. He was targeted on 40 percent of Josh Allen's throws in this one, however. In his sixth pro season, Brown has set career highs with 71 catches, 111 targets and 1,007 yards receiving. With that said, he needs to be considered a WR3 at best in Week 16 against the New England Patriots.

Buffalo Bills WR John Brown caught three passes for 26 yards against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 14. He was targeted eight times during the game.
Huddle Up: Brown is on a cold streak with three straight games with under 40 receiving yards. He is still receiving plenty of targets in the passing game, which helps his fantasy value. He could be a flex option next week against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Buffalo Bills WR John Brown caught three passes for 26 yards against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 13. He also threw a 28-yard touchdown pass during the game.
Huddle Up: Brown has been held to under 40 yards in each of the last two games but has recorded a touchdown in both games. He continues to be the main option in the passing game and could be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues next week.

Buffalo Bills WR John Brown caught two passes for 39 yards and one touchdown against the Denver Broncos in Week 12. He was targeted four times during the game.
Huddle Up: Brown was held to a season low in terms of yards this week but does have three touchdowns in the last two games. He should continue to be the main option in the passing game for the Bills and can be at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues next week.

Buffalo Bills WR John Brown (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 20.
Huddle Up: Brown should return to practice later this week and is in no danger of missing the Week 12 game. He has been one of the most consistent fantasy receivers this season and will continue to be the main option for the Bills. He can be at low-end No. 2 or a No. 3 receiver in all leagues.

Buffalo Bills WR John Brown ended up with nine receptions for 137 yards and two touchdowns on 14 targets in Week 11 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Smokey Brown had his first triple-digit yardage total since Week 1 against the Jets, and it was his first multi-score performance of the season. In fact, he had a total of two scores all season. He remains more of a WR4 or flex fantasy option in most leagues. The Bills host the Broncos in Week 12.
Posted: 11/10/2019 10:02 pm UTC
Buffalo Bills WR John Brown finished with five receptions for 77 yards on 11 targets in Week 10 against the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: The targets were great, but unfortunately he failed to find the end zone for the third straight games, and just once in the past eight outings. He has four or more grabs in each of his nine outings, making him a solid WR3 in PPR fantasy formats with lesser appeal in standard play. The Bills travel to meet the Dolphins in Week 11.
