Bryce Brown off to a fast start against Panthers on Monday Night Football

Elsa

Bryce Brown is getting his first chance at starting in the Eagles' backfield, and he's running away with it.

Philadelphia Eagles running back Bryce Brown isn't having much trouble replacing LeSean McCoy thus far in the team's Monday Night Football game against the Carolina Panthers. Brown has rushed eight times for 133 yards, including a ridiculous 65-yard touchdown burst that left Carolina defenders in the dust.

Brown, a seventh-round pick in the 2012 draft, is replacing McCoy, who has a concussion. The long touchdown run was the first of Brown's professional career.

Fantasy Impact: Bryce Brown was a popular add on the waiver wire last week, and he's showing why on Monday Night Football. His speed and vision are proving to be valuable in the Eagles' rushing attack.

Given the nature of McCoy's injury, Brown could become a fantasy star down the stretch.
