From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 20): Someone is probably going to be willing to pay more for Bryce Brown than I list here. He has a gaudy talent, but he is also the type to get on the coach's bad side with any number of bad habits. More unlikely things have happened, but I just can't get excited about Brown in a part-time role when he couldn't even get active on game days until injuries forced the Bills' hand. This isn't the Peyton Manning Broncos.

General News (Tue Oct 21): was inactive for the seventh time this season in Week 7 against the Minnesota Vikings. However, with injuries to Fred Jackson (groin) and C.J. Spiller (collarbone), head coach Doug Marrone said Sunday, Oct. 19, that he would "have no problem bringing up Bryce."

Week 8: at New York Jets

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. 'This is the opportunity I've been waiting for, to get back in that workhorse role and show people what I can do,' Anthony Dixon said after the game last Sunday. 'I feel like I really didn't get labeled right coming out of college. People tried to do something else with me, make me somebody that I really wasn't. ... Put me in short-yardage, say I couldn't run routes or I ain't got hands. I don't see what they're seeing. I'm ready for the opportunity.' However, the Bills also have Bryce Brown to bring into the mix, and head coach Doug Marrone said he has 'no problem bringing up' Brown from the practice squad. Fred Jackson predicted the team 'wouldn't miss a beat' with Brown in the lead role. There will be jockeying for position/touches between Dixon and Brown this week - stay tuned to Footballguys.com's Players in the News for the latest on this developing situation as the weekend games come closer in time. Both will get opportunities to prove what they can do with both C.J. Spiller (broken collarbone, out indefinitely but probably for the season) and Jackson (out due to a groin injury for 3-4 weeks) injuries. The Jets' rush D started off the year with a bang, but has faded to eighth in the NFL allowing an average of 88 yards rushing per game, with two rushing scores handed out as of Week 8. Last week, the Jets held the Patriots to 16/53/0 rushing as a team (but dual-threat back Shane Vereen scored twice as a pass receiver) - Denver had 33/138/0 rushing vs. the Jets two games back. This is a tough but not impossible matchup for Brown and Dixon. NFC East games are always hard-fought, unpredictable affairs.

Bills | Anthony Dixon working with starters (Wed Oct 22, 01:53 PM) - Buffalo Bills RB Anthony Dixon is working with the starters in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22. RB Bryce Brown is working with the second-string offense.

Our View: Those rushing out to get Brown on the waiver wire may be chasing fool's gold. Sure, Brown is an incredibly talented runner, but he lacks discipline and tries to bounce too many runs outside. Dixon is more of a disciplined runner, and he should be the lead back while Fred Jackson is out.

Bills | Anthony Dixon likely the guy (Wed Oct 22, 10:26 AM) - The Buffalo Bills love RB Anthony Dixon, and he's likely to lead the way at running back over RB Bryce Brown.

Our View: Fantasy owners need to realize this Bills RB situation will be split between two backs. Dixon is a power back with determination in the middle of the line. Brown is a more explosive player, but he lacks discipline as a runner and tries to bounce too many runs outside.

Bills | Bryce Brown could be activated (Sun Oct 19, 06:50 PM) - Buffalo Bills RB Bryce Brown was inactive for the seventh time this season in Week 7 against the Minnesota Vikings. However, with injuries to RBs Fred Jackson (groin) and C.J. Spiller (collarbone), head coach Doug Marrone said Sunday, Oct. 19, that he would 'have no problem bringing up Bryce.'

Bills | Week 7 Inactives (Sun Oct 19, 11:43 AM) - The Buffalo Bills have declared RB Bryce Brown, OT Cyrus Kouandjio, FS Kenny Ladler, WR Marcus Easley, WR Marquise Goodwin, CB Ross Cockrell, LB Ty Powell inactive for Week 7.

Bills | Bryce Brown not in immediate plans (Thu Oct 16, 04:44 PM) - Buffalo Bills RB Bryce Brown expected to be used a lot more than he has been when he was traded to the team in the offseason, and head coach Doug Marrone has no urgency to get him on the field anytime soon. 'He's here for a while. I'm not concerned about (getting him on the field soon),' Marrone said. Brown remains on the scout team in practice.

Our View: If you can get Brown cheap in dynasty, this might be the time as next year could be his chance. Fred Jackson signed an extension earlier this year, but C.J. Spiller is in the final year of his contract.
