Is this the week of the Bryce Brown breakout? Call it a gut feeling, but Brown's opportunity could be coming. The Eagles offense has been humming over the past few weeks, and Philadelphia faces a Vikings defense that has been crumbling. Minnesota is allowing over 30 points per game this season. Only the Washington Redskins are worse in terms of scoring defense.
As a result, Brown should receive increased work in garbage time as the Eagles rest LeSean McCoy towards the end of the contest. Though fellow running back Chris Polk rushed four times for 50 yards and a touchdown this past Sunday, Brown received more carries and is a better receiver out of the backfield. Brown is a risk, but may be worth a look in extremely deep leagues.
