John Brown Fantasy Outlook Sours with Bad Weather in Buffalo

Although John Brown is in the midst of his best season and is set to enjoy a good matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles' porous secondary, bad weather is conspiring to tank his fantasy value heading into Week 8.

Currently in Buffalo there is rain and wind of 25 MPH with gusts all the way up to 40 MPH. Even with a strong-armed quarterback like Josh Allen, any downfield passing in this game is going to be difficult to come by.

Further adding concern to Brown's outlook is the dip the total has taken in this game. After opening at 43.5 points, the over/under has already been bet down to 39.5 on FanDuel Sportsbook. With news of the weather spreading, bettors are predicting less points, which will mean less fantasy opportunity for Brown to deliver.

Whether you think Josh Allen is viable as a running quarterback in a windy game, it appears as though John Brown may have his skill set limited by the weather. If you have other options, it might be worth finding someone who isn't playing in gale-force winds.
