The Buffalo Bills have placed speedy wide receiver John Brown on the IR due to a high-ankle sprain. This is a serious blow to the Bills' passing attack, but the news does significantly improve Gabriel Davis' fantasy outlook.

The Bills' rookie wideout has flashed some real big-time potential at times this season. He's finished two games with at least 70 receiving yards and has recorded 3 TDs on the year despite largely working as the team's fourth wide receiver.

Now working as the No. 3 option in what has suddenly become an elite passing game, Davis will be an intriguing WR3/4 in fantasy leagues while Brown is on the shelf.

He also might be poised for his biggest game in Week 12. Buffalo takes on a beatable Los Angeles Chargers' secondary that has allowed 20 passing TDs on the year. That's tied for the eighth-worst total in the league.

This matchup also features a hefty 51.5-point over/under on FanDuel Sportsbook, which is tied for the second-highest total of the week. Fantasy production shouldn't exactly be tough to come by in what could quickly turn into a true shootout.

Davis will be on the WR3/4 radar for the next three weeks, and he should be on the WR3 radar with a nice matchup in Week 12 .
