What this means, more than anything else, is that there is still a lot of ambiguity about how much time Brown can be expected to miss. If he suffered a “non-displaced” fracture (crack in the bone that doesn’t affect the anatomical shape) of the fibula (outside bone of the lower leg), then there is a distinct possibility he can avoid surgery and be back in roughly 6 weeks. The fibula is a non-weight bearing bone, which basically means that we don’t rely on it to walk and/or run in terms of stability. The major concern would be a low tackle where a defender or teammate rolled into the fractured leg.

In fantasy football, touchdowns are king. Unlike the other fantasy sports like baseball and basketball, where categories are weighed evenly, you must have players on your team that reach the end zone on a regular basis when playing a standard fantasy football league. A 100-yard game provides less value than a touchdown on a 1-yard carry. So one of the biggest questions that you...
