Bryce Brown RB BUF 7 Months

Bryce Brown said his goal for the 2014 season is to be a No. 1 running back.

"That's obviously a goal of mine going into next year. I think I can," Brown said. "That's what I'm going to be working toward, whether I'm here or I'm somewhere else." That's obviously not going to happen in Philadelphia with LeSean McCoy entrenched as the starter. Brown has been a massive disappointment in coach Chip Kelly's offense, but a senior NFL scout believes Brown "has all of the tools to be an every-down back." Chris Polk has passed Brown on the depth chart in Philly, but the Eagles aren't going to simply cut 22-year-old Brown.

Bryce Brown recorded no touches in Sunday's Week 15 loss at Minnesota.

Brown appeared to play behind Chris Polk. Re-draft owners can move on anyway with LeSean McCoy healthy heading into Week 16.

Bryce Brown rushed five times for four yards in Sunday's Week 13 win over the Cardinals.

Brown is now averaging 4.8 carries per game as LeSean McCoy's caddy. He's still the clear-cut backup, but he's averaging a mere 2.91 YPC. It's a little concerning for Brown's potential value should McCoy go down at any point.

Bryce Brown rushed four times for two yards and added two catches for 28 yards in Sunday's Week 11 win over the Redskins.

Late in the second quarter, LeSean McCoy went down with what looked like a serious hamstring pull. So for about 15 minutes of real time, it looked like Brown was going to be a huge player down the stretch in fantasy leagues. But McCoy came back out for the second half and appeared to be just fine. Brown remains a must-own handcuff and nothing more.

Bryce Brown rushed four times for 11 yards in Sunday's Week 10 win at Green Bay.

LeSean McCoy busted out of his mini-slump Sunday, rushing 25 times for 155 yards. That left Brown for some scraps late. He's just a guy to keep on your bench in case McCoy gets hurt.

Bryce Brown rushed three times for negative-one yard in Sunday's Week 8 loss to the Giants.

Brown is now on pace to rush just 76 times for 196 yards (2.57 YPC) this season. His role isn't nearly as large as originally expected with LeSean McCoy staying healthy and dominant. Perhaps Brown would push McCoy more if he didn't bounce every single run to the sideline.

Brown is not gaining on LeSean McCoy and won't do so as he continues to get pulled to toward the boundary on every run. The handcuff is averaging just 5.5 touches per game this season.

Bryce Brown crushed five times for 11 yards in Sunday's Week 5 win over the Giants.

Bryce Brown rushed three times for seven yards in the Eagles' Week 3 loss to the Chiefs.

He wasn't targeted in the passing game. All three of Brown's carries came as LeSean McCoy tended to a leg injury. It's a bit surprising that Brown has just 15 carries through three games, but the Eagles' run-heavy offense is eventually going to necessitate a bigger role. He remains worth a bench stash in deeper leagues.
