|Bryce Brown is known in fantasy circles as the guy who stepped in for an injured LeSean McCoy in 2012 and proceeded to rush for 347 yards and four touchdowns in his first two NFL starts. It's been mostly downhill since then. Last season Brown was passed up on the depth chart by Chris Polk for the backup position to McCoy, making him expendable this offseason. The Bills stepped in and acquired him for a conditional 2015 fourth-round pick during the draft. Brown is a big back at 6'0, 220 pounds with rare speed for his size, but he struggled after the historic start to his career due to his penchant for trying to bounce every play outside for big gains instead of taking what the defense gives him. Given the fact that the Bills ran the ball more than any other team in 2013, Jackson's age, Spiller's injury history and his career average of 4.6 yards per carry, Brown makes an intriguing late-round selection in fantasy drafts.
|Expect RBBC from Bills in Week 8|
Dixon says he and Bryce will "do it together"

FFToday's Take: Dixon ran with the first team in practice on Wednesday but it sounds like the team will take a RBBC approach on Sunday. They Jets have been tough against the run so far this season giving up just 15.2 FPts on average to the position. Dixon and Bryce Brown will be FLEX considerations in Week 8.
| Both Spiller, Jackson injured in Week 7|
Spiller likely out for the year with broken collarbone

|C.J. Spiller's shoulder and emotions were wrecked. Ten minutes earlier, Buffalo Bills center Eric Wood helped running back Fred Jackson limp off the field with a groin injury. Spiller's collar bone reportedly was broken. The Bills could be without Spiller and Jackson for a long time. (Buffalo News)|
FFToday's Take: Spiller will have surgery on his collarbone and will likely miss the remainder of the season. Jackson will have an MRI on his groin on Monday. He's likely out for Week 8 and the Bills have a bye in Week 9. Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon will be the top two running backs next week and perhaps for the next few weeks until Jackson can return.
