Brandon Browner Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Fantasy Football News 2022

Most Recent Shark Bites

Former Seahawks CB Brandon Browner has reached a 3-year deal worth $17 million with New England.  He'll miss the 1st 4 games of the coming season for a league drug suspension, but then Browner will combine with Darrelle Revis to give the Patriots arguably the league's best corner tandem.  The coverage ability of those 2 can only enhance the defense's blitz freedom and increase the pressure on opposing QBs.  New England could sport a top 5 D in both fantasy football and real terms in 2014.  Like Revis, Browner doesn't generally make enough tackles to be an attractive target in the 2014 IDP rankings.

The NFL has reinstated Seahawks CB Brandon Browner following his December suspension for violating the substance abuse policy.  That allows Browner to hit the free-agent market and take part in all offseason activities.  He still must sit out the 1st 4 games of the 2014 season, however.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports that the league has suspended Seahawks CB Brandon Browner indefinitely for violating the drug policy.  Reports of a 1-year ban spread back in early November, but Browner reportedly appealed at the time.  That appeal has been rejected.  He reportedly turned down an offer of an 8-game ban in hopes of getting the whole punishment thrown out.  Browner will now miss nearly all of next season before he can apply for reinstatement.  He'll become a free agent in March.

Seahawks CB Richard Sherman (foot) sat out Wednesday's practice.  HC Pete Carroll has said nothing about the severity of the injury, but Sherman didn't miss a single snap of Sunday's loss at San Francisco.  We'll see how his participation proceeds.  Carroll did say Wednesday that he doesn't expect CB Brandon Browner (groin) to play Sunday at the Giants.

NFL.com reports that Seahawks CB Brandon Browner has rejected a settlement offer from the league that would reduce his 1-year drug suspension by nearly 3 months.  Browner will instead continue to pursue his appeal of the ban.  He's currently out with a groin injury suffered Nov. 10 at Atlanta.

The league has suspended Seahawks CB Brandon Browner 1 year for violating the league's substance abuse policy.  Browner was already likely out for the rest of this regular season because of injury but will now miss half of next year as well.  This also comes a day after fill-in CB Walter Thurmond drew a 4-game suspension for a non-PED drug violation.  NFL Network's Michael Silver reports that Seattle plans to re-sign CB Antoine Winfield.  We don't yet know how big Winfield's role will be, and he has yet to see the field this season after getting dumped by both the Vikings and Seahawks in the summer.  If he can crack the starting lineup, though, the veteran CB has proved to be a high-upside fantasy defender.

The Seahawks expect to miss CB Brandon Browner for 4-6 weeks because of a groin injury he suffered Sunday against the Vikings.  At 9-1 and in control of the NFC's top playoff seed, Seattle can afford to be cautious with Browner.  Fortunately for fantasy owners, the Seahawks D has plenty of other talent to keep in among the top starting units the rest of the way.

Seahawks CB Brandon Browner suffered a groin injury in Sunday's win over Atlanta. HC Pete Carroll told 710 ESPN Radio in Seattle that Browner could be out "quite a while."  Browner's not much of an IDP option on his own, but his absence could hurt the Seattle pass D a bit.  At the least, it should make life a little easier for opponents' #2 WRs.  Walter Thurmond, the primary slot and nickel CB will start on the outside in Browner's absence.  He could deliver some fantasy sleeper value, with opponents perhaps more motivated to avoid CB Richard Sherman.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll confirmed Friday that he expects CB Brandon Browner and DE Chris Clemons to be ready for Sunday's clash with Jacksonville.  It'll be Clemons' 1st time on the field since he suffered an ACL tear in the January playoff win at Washington.  Browner missed the 1st 2 weeks with a hamstring injury.  Seattle, of course, probably could dominate the Jaguars even without these reinforcements.

Seahawks CB Brandon Browner is doubtful for Sunday's matchup with the Niners.  It would be the 2nd straight game he'd miss with a hamstring injury.  Seattle still limited Cam Newton to a career-low passing total without Browner in Week 1, but it would obviously be better to have the D at full strength vs. Colin Kaepernick in Week 2.

The Seahawks expect to get starting CB Brandon Browner and DE Cliff Avril back for Week 2.  Avril took part in limited practice Wednesday after missing Week 1 with a hamstring injury.  HC Pete Carroll expects Browner to return to the field Thursday after surprisingly missing the opener with his own hamstring injury.  Seattle could also get DE Chris Clemons back for Sunday's clash with the Niners.  Clemons practiced on a limited basis Wednesday.  He's been out since suffering an ACL tear in January.  Any of these 3 returns would certainly help the Seahawks' team defense.

As expected, Seahawks DE Cliff Avril will miss today's matchup with the Panthers.  Seattle will also miss CB Brandon Browner.  Both are dealing with hamstring injuries, and each absence hurts the team D.  If you drafted the Seahawks, you probably need to stick with them as your Week 1 starter.  But Panthers QB Cam Newton presents a dangerous matchup.  Newton, meanwhile, gets a better fantasy football matchup thanks to those injuries.

Seahawks CB Richard Sherman revealed that he won his appeal of a 4-game suspension for performance-enhancing drugs.  Sherman successfully argued that his urine sample was contaminated.  He'll play against the Rams this weekend.  And Seattle will have both Sherman and CB Brandon Browner for the postseason.

Seahawks CB Brandon Browner has dropped the appeal of his 4-game suspension.  He'll start serving the ban this week and miss the remainder of the regular season.  Browner currently sits 16th in Pro Football Focus' CB rankings, although he's only the #2 CB in Seattle.  #1 CB Richard Sherman will have his appeal heard on December 14th.  That means he'll play against the Cardinals this weekend.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that both Seattle starting CBs face potential 4-game league suspensions for PED violations. Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner are reportedly appealing the rulings, swearing that they are innocent. We've heard that one before. We'll wait to see what happens with the appeals, but even players who have unknowingly consumed banned substances don't tend to go unpunished. Sherman and Browner make up one of the league's best CB tandems -- perhaps THE best in the NFL. Losing both for any number of games. Enough to significantly impact the fantasy standing of the team D? Let's see what matchups might be involved.

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that Seahawks CBs Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner are facing 4-game suspensions for violating the league's policy on banned substances.  They'll submit an appeal, which is expected to be heard this week.  Sherman and Browner have emerged as arguably the best CB tandem in the NFL.  If they're out, it'd turn Seattle from a tough passing matchup to a plus draw.  Their next 4 opponents are the Bears, Cardinals, Bills, and 49ers.
