John Brown had his most productive season ever as a pro, topping 800 yards for the first time since his second season and 1,000 yards for the first time ever, adding 6 touchdowns to his totals in 2019. He's going to see some of his team-leading targets get drawn away by Stefon Diggs, but not being the best and almost only option will be good as well, since teams won't be able to focus on him. Quarterback Josh Allen improved a bunch in 2019, and having two options he can rely on will help, but he has to continue to improve his accuracy. As that is likely to continue to be a work in progress, we believe this passing offense will stall at times, making Brown a solid addition to your bench but rarely anyone you can plug in on a consistent basis.

Bills | John Brown ruled out (Fri Nov 27, 10:26 AM) - Buffalo Bills WR John Brown (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 12.

Our View: Gabriel Davis has what the flex value and Cole Beasley is a safe WR3/Flex with Brown's absence narrowing the target tree, but Josh Allen has had a lot tougher time with Brown out this year. At least the Chargers will be without Casey Hayward and Melvin Ingram.

Bills | John Brown remains sidelined (Thu Nov 26, 05:11 PM) - 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.

Our View: Ah yes, the old 'estimated' practice report. Watch Brown's status when the Bills actually do practice. The team's passing attack just looks better when Brown is out there.
