Donald Brown's fantasy value could be shelved for another week

Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE

Donald Brown could be out for at least one more week as he recovers from a knee scope. We break down the fantasy implications.

Indianapolis Colts RB Donald Brown (knee scope) could sit out at least one more week, according to Phillip B. Wilson. Interim coach Bruce Arians didn't say for certain that Brown would be out, only that he's "close to returning."

Brown missed Week 7 with a knee scope surgery. Vick Ballard has played in his stead.

Fantasy Impact: Sounds like we'll have to wait until practice reports this week to get a clearer picture of Brown's status. Not that it's a terribly huge deal, he's been a pretty mediocre fantasy player this season, with an uninspiring 239 yards and one TD. He's the fantasy version of "Just A Guy."

Ballard got 103 total yards against the Browns in Week 6. He's a decent flex play against the Titans if Brown can't go again.
