Free-agent WR John Brown (Bills) agreed to a one-year, $3.75 million deal with the Las Vegas Raiders Wednesday, March 17. The deal is worth a maximum of $5.5 million.
Huddle Up: Brown is an interesting deep threat that is often slept on in fantasy. He'll be in the WR5 conversation.

Free-agent WR John Brown (Bills) said he would be interested in signing with the Pittsburgh Steelers or Indianapolis Colts this offseason.
Huddle Up: Both the Steelers and Colts may lose receivers this offseason, but Brown should receive interest in more teams. He struggled with injuries this season but has shown he can be a productive receiver. Brown could be a No. 4 fantasy receiver depending on his situation.

Free-agent WR John Brown (Bills) is expected to sign elsewhere and not re-sign with the Buffalo Bills at a lower cap number after being released Wednesday, March 10, according to Adam Caplan of Sirius XM NFL Radio.
Huddle Up: Brown took a major step backward while being held to just nine games played in 2020 following a breakout 2019 campaign. Buffalo's addition of WR Stefon Diggs ate into his targets and overall production. Brown could still be a reliable WR2 or 3 for another team. He's likely to be relegated to a WR4 or 5 for fantasy purposes depending on the landing spot.

Buffalo Bills WR John Brown was released Wednesday, March 10.
Huddle Up: Brown was limited to nine games this past season because of injuries and finished with 458 yards and three touchdowns. He did post a 1,000-yard season in 2019 and should receive interest from multiple teams. He can be a late round pick in fantasy leagues depending on his situation.

Buffalo Bills WR John Brown is someone that could be released this offseason, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Marcel Louis-Jacques, who notes that cutting Brown would save the team $7.9 million. He also writes that Brown might be amenable to a pay cut if approached.
Huddle Up: Brown appeared in just nine games this past season and went from a 72-1,060-6 line in 2019 to a 33-458-3 one this year following the arrival of Stefon Diggs and drafting of Gabriel Davis. At 31 and with just one season remaining on the three-year deal he signed with the club, Brown could find himself elsewhere in 2021 or back in Buffalo with a reduced role.

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.
Posted: 1/01/2021 3:10 pm UTC
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.
