Bills WR John Brown (ankle) is out for Sunday's game against the Chargers. He'll be replaced by rookie WR Gabriel Davis, who becomes an intriguing DFS flier. But the real winner is WR Cole Beasley, who's posted 6-100, 6-53 and 11-112 lines on 25 total targets in the 3 games Brown has missed all or most of this season.

Bills WR John Brown (ankle) won't practice on Wednesday, HC Sean McDermott said. He added that they'll "take it one day at a time and see what the rest of the week holds" for Brown. It's a bad sign that he's unable to practice at all coming off the bye week. Fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on Brown in Week 12 lineups. His absence would boost WR Cole Beasley's target projection.

Bills WR John Brown was knocked out by a right ankle injury in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game against the Cardinals. We'll look for an update on the severity tomorrow and monitor his status this coming week.

Bills S Micah Hyde (ankle) is active for today's game against the Cardinals. He's merely a low-level IDP option but available if you were waiting for him.

The Bills have placed CB Josh Norman on the COVID list after he tested positive. Buffalo has also placed TE Tyler Kroft, CB Levi Wallace and S Dean Marlowe on the list as close contacts. They won't travel for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. That removes a starting corner (Wallace) and the potential replacement for S Micah Hyde if Hyde turns up inactive. He's questionable after sustaining an ankle injury Thursday that kept him out of Friday's practice. So Buffalo could be facing Arizona down 2 of its top 3 outside CBs and starting a 3rd-stringer at safety.

The Bills have ruled LB Matt Milano out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Sal Capaccio of WGR 550 reports. Milano played a limited role each of the past 2 weeks because of a pectoral injury that cost him the previous 2 games. This week's change at least keeps us from having to guess at how to treat Milano in IDP lineups. A.J. Klein has been the 2nd Bills LB in playing time when Milano has missed time (behind MLB Tremaine Edmunds).

Bills S Micah Hyde (concussion) is inactive for today's game against the Patriots. LB Matt Milano (pec) is active but could still see his role limited. DE Jerry Hughes (foot) and DT Quinton Jefferson (knee) are active as well.

The forecast for today's Patriots-Bills game calls for a chance of rain and 20 mph sustained winds with gusts over 30. That certainly puts a damper on the passing games. New England figured to go run-heavy anyway, so the bigger impact is on Josh Allen and Co. We'd also avoid both kickers in this game.

Bills S Micah Hyde (concussion), DE Jerry Hughes (foot), LB Matt Milano (pec) and DT Quinton Jefferson (knee) are all questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots. Hyde looks unlikely to play after missing practice all week. Hughes and Jefferson each put in a full practice Friday and looks likely to be available. Milano played through a questionable tag last week and continued to practice on a limited basis this week. He played just a fraction of his normal role in Week 7, though. We have to assume he won't be back to full playing time this week.

Bills WR John Brown (knee) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. It looks like he’ll be back in his usual role, but consider him just a WR4 against a tough Patriots secondary.

Bills S Micah Hyde missed Wednesday's practice and is in the concussion protocol after a collision late in Sunday's win over the Jets. We'll see about his progress, but don't bet on him facing the Patriots this Sunday. Jaquan Johnson looks like the next man up if Hyde sits.

Bills WR John Brown (knee) put in a full practice on Wednesday. That puts him on track to return for this weekend's game against the Patriots. Consider Brown a WR4 against a tough secondary.

Bills LB Matt Milano and CB Tre'Davious White are active for today's game against the Jets. Milano had missed the past 2 games with a pectoral injury but looks good to go for IDP lineups. White's back issue popped up during the week, so we'll see if it affects his playing time today. But White looks ready to go if you were planning to play him in your IDP lineup. The team defense only becomes a stronger fantasy play with 2 key starters in the lineup.

Bills LB Matt Milano (pec) and CB Tre'Davious White (back) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets. White played through a questionable tag last week. But after not showing up on the Wednesday injury report, he was limited Thursday and then sat out Friday. We wouldn't be surprised to see him sit out this game. Milano missed his 2nd straight game last week despite mixing in a full Thursday practice between 2 limited workouts. He spent all 3 days limited this week. We'll update the status for both players Sunday morning. If Milano can't go, A.J. Klein would see full playing time. He played 88% of the snaps against Kansas City, tallying 7 tackles and a forced fumble. White's backup is Siran Neal. Buffalo will also miss CB Josh Norman, who suffered a hamstring injury Thursday. Levi Wallace, the season-opening starter opposite White, is already on short-term IR.

Bills WR Dawson Knox (calf) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Jets. Tyler Kroft gets another game as Buffalo’s lead TE but isn’t a fantasy option.

Bills WR John Brown (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Jets. He’ll be replaced by rookie WR Gabriel Davis, who’s posted 4-81 and 5-58 lines in 2 games Brown has missed all or most of this season. Davis is in play as a deep-league and DFS flier vs. a bad Jets secondary.

Bills WR John Brown (knee) remained sidelined for Thursday's practice. He's looking unlikely to play against the Jets this week, turning WR Gabriel Davis into an intriguing deep-league and DFS flier.

Bills WR John Brown (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. He was noticeably hobbled in Monday night's loss to the Chiefs, finishing catch-less on 4 targets. We'll see if Brown suits up for this weekend's game vs. the Jets, but we can't count on him in fantasy lineups until we see that he's back to 100%.

Bills LB Matt Milano (pec) is inactive for the 2nd straight game tonight against the Chiefs. Tyrel Dodson should start in his place. Dodson played 91% of the snaps vs. Tennessee in Week 5, with Milano out. Bills CB Tre'Davious White (back) is active. He finished the week with a pair of full practices and should be good to go for IDP lineups.

3:10pm EDT 10/19/20

Bills WR John Brown (knee) is active for tonight's game against the Chiefs. He was a full-go in Thursday and Friday's practices but limited on Saturday, so it's unclear how close to 100% he is. Consider Brown a risk/reward WR3 tonight.
