Philadelphia Eagles RB Bryce Brown will start Monday night against the Carolina Panthers reports Geoff Mosher on Twitter. Mosher tweets that the news comes from head coach Andy Reid himself, so you can trust this feed as actual news not just speculation from the beat writing community.
Bryce Brown has competed in 10 games for the Philadelphia Eagles, accumulating 141 rushing yards on 32 carries (4.4 ypc) while adding another 66 return-yards.
For fantasy owners looking for a RB they can trust, or just another offensive player to inject some life into their lineup, Bryce Brown could be your man—this is certainly true for those of you in deeper formats where there’s nothing but slim pickings.
The Eagles will also roll with struggling QB Nick Fole,s while Mike Vick also deals with a concussion. The idea here is the Eagles are going to lean on Bryce Brown heavily, since a quality RB is a struggling QB’s best friend.
But Carolina is also a big reason for this strategy.
As it stands right now, Bryce Brown is certainly worth a look in all formats. Looking ahead, if LeSean McCoy’s symptoms continue to persist, Bryce Brown would wind up starting again for Philadelphia in Week 13. This possibility, at the very least, makes Bryce Brown a solid roster stash for the remainder of the 2012 fantasy football season.
Don’t take the wait and see approach with Brown. There are plenty of owners who are going to eventually learn of his status before game-time, and plenty of owners making a run for him.
So, what are you waiting for? Go get him!
