After sustaining so many injuries over the past few seasons, Andre Brown is back and continuing to make big plays, which is exactly what he'd done in Week 12 against the Dallas Cowboys.

The Cowboys came up with a big win against the Giants, winning 24-21 on a game-winning field goal.  However, Brown was been great in the game, running the ball 21 times for 127 yards, adding another 11 yards receiving.  In ESPN's standard scoring leagues, that was good enough for 13 fantasy points.

Before this game, Brown had played in just two other games, but he was quite productive in both of them.  He played against the Green Bay Packers and Oakland Raiders, carrying the ball 48 times for 181 yards and a touchdown while putting up 25 total fantasy points.

Since coming back, Brown has been the feature back for the Giants, and that should continue.  To make things even better, the Giants will be playing their next two games against some weak defenses in the Washington Redskins and San Diego Chargers, which should give Brown even more opportunities to make plays.

At this point, I like Brown as a solid RB2 in all leagues, and that should stay the same over the next few weeks.  Regardless of what kind of league you're in, if you have Brown, you should be starting him until he proves otherwise.
