RB Bryce Brown - Philadelphia Eagles
|5-10, 219||Born: 5-14-1991||College: Kansas State||Drafted: Round 7|
Quick fantasy outlook: The good news is Bryce Brown parlayed a 7th round draft choice into an important role in the Eagles offense as a rookie, garnering 564 rushing yards (4.9 per attempt) and 4 touchdowns to go along with 13 receptions. Brown ran with power and in two mid-season starts in place of an injured LeSean McCoy, had 178 yards and 2 TDs against the Panthers followed by 169 yards and 2 TDs against the Cowboys. The bad news is Brown fumbled four times in a limited role, and now must convince a new coaching staff of his value. Proving his value shouldn't be too hard, since Chip Kelly is going to implement a run heavy offense which is going to require an active RB2 on Sundays. Watching Brown's tape from 2012 shows an instinctive, decisive runner that broke tackles. He has a place on this team. It's the fumbling issue that could derail an otherwise exciting young career. With veteran Felix Jones added to the roster, Brown must protect the ball. If he can do that, Brown will enter the season as one of the more compelling backup RBs in the NFC.
