Bryce Brown adds 2nd TD to stellar fantasy performance on MNF

Elsa

Bryce Brown found the end zone on a 5-yard run in the third quarter, adding to what was already a stellar night running the ball. We break down the fantasy implications.

Bryce Brown found the end zone from 5 yards out in the third quarter to help give the Philadelphia Eagles a 22-21 lead over the Carolina Panthers heading into the fourth quarter on Monday Night Football. Through three quarters, the 2012 seventh-round draft pick has 15 carries for 150 yards and two touchdowns, with LeSean McCoy out due to a concussion.

McCoy did not practice leading up to Monday's kickoff. There is no word yet on his status for Week 13 against the Dallas Cowboys. Considering Brown's breakout performance, the Eagles could have difficult decision to make regarding the backfield if McCoy is healthy.

Fantasy Impact: Don't be surprised if Brown is the first player off waivers in fantasy leagues everywhere this week. He should have been targeted last week after it became clear that McCoy would be ruled out, but after this clinic there is no reason Brown should not be owned going forward.

Obviously, McCoy's return would throw a major wrench in Brown's fantasy value. If healthy, expect McCoy to regain a significant role regardless of Brown's heroics (and bear in mind that Brown has lost two fumbles tonight). Still, with fantasy playoffs gearing up, Brown could ultimately prove incredibly valuable.
