John Brown is on the Bills final injury report for Week 5. We break down what it means for fantasy football roster decisions.

Sunday AM update: The Titans have had a staff member test positive Sunday morning, with Adam Schefter reporting it is a coach. The team has shut down the facility while it speaks to the league about next steps. If you have to make a decision by 1 p.m. and we don’t have an update, your best bet is benching your Titans and Bills.

Buffalo Bills wide receiver John Brown is officially listed as questionable on the Week 5 injury report. He’s still dealing with a calf injury that limited him somewhat in last week’s game against the Raiders. But he is expected to play on Tuesday against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy impact: John Brown injury

Brown didn’t have much fantasy impact in last week’s game. He caught four passes for 42 yards, and had a touchdown taken away on a questionable call by the replay officials. The week before that, he was forced out of the game early with the same calf injury that’s bothering him now. He was doing much better before that game, having scored in the first two weeks of the season with 152 yards.

Before getting shut down for multiple positive COVID tests, the Titans defense had surrendered 30 points in their last two outings. The Bills offense has been red hot, and Brown has the potential for a decent game in this one.
