News: Brown's teammate Anthony Dixon lined up with the first-team offense next to Kyle Orton during Wednesday's practice, while Brown was used mostly with the second team, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports. Impact: Running backs are gold this time of season once injuries strike - and the last few weeks have certainly a bloodbath for the position - so people all over are trying to play hunches on the Buffalo situation following injuries to Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller in the same half. The truth is we won't know for sure until the Bills line up to play the Jets this week, and even that could change as soon as game flow kicks in. So we'll give you the knowns in as simple a fashion as possible: Dixon is the likely starter and the surer thing. He beat out Brown for the No. 3 spot for a reason and the team brass seems to love his attitude and all-around game. He's going to get his chance, and one of his skill sets lies around the the goal line. So there's some safety in picking Dixon if you're hurting at running back. Brown, on the other hand, is the upside play. We've seen what he can do while LeSean McCoy was hurt, and quite frankly, he's a better athlete than Dixon. Also, there's a chance Dixon has trouble behind an offensive line that's struggling and the quicker-bursting Brown takes the job and runs with it for four weeks. To sum it up, we like Dixon by a slight margin as a short-term play and he could end up being a nice plugger/chugger for your lineup for a month, but if you're filling bench spots and/or looking for a lottery ticket, Brown probably has more upside.(RotoWire, )

News: Brown is in line for an expanded role with the Bills in the coming weeks, with both Fred Jackson (groin) and C.J. Spiller (collarbone) out indefinitely, the team's official site reports. Impact: The same applies to fellow running back Boobie Dixon, who was pressed into the Bills' lead role in Sunday's win over the Vikings, following Jackson and Spiller's injuries. That said, while Brown has been inactive for the Bills' first seven games, during his two-season stint with the Eagles (2012-13), he displayed flashes of potential when handed increased duties. While Dixon is no doubt in line to factor in as well, notably in short-yardage situations, Brown would appear to offer more fantasy upside to those looking to replace Jackson or Spiller, or simply looking to boost their running back corps heading into Week 8.(RotoWire, )

News: With C.J. Spiller out for an "indefinite" amount of time, and Fred Jackson dealing with a groin injury, opportunity knocks for Brown, starting next Sunday against the Jets. Impact: Brown has yet to be active this season, but with Spiller out and Jackson's Week 8 status unclear, it looks like the Bills' rushing attack next week could well feature a combo of Anthony Dixon and Brown, a potential scenario that makes Brown worthy of a speculative add.(RotoWire, )
