2014 Outlook: Fantasy Handcuff

Last updated on Jun-27-2014 by Mark Morales-Smith

Andre Brown ran very well in New York when he got his opportunity. If Brown were to stay healthy more often, he can perform as an excellent handcuff for Texans feature back Arian Foster. That is where the issue lies though: his health. Brown has dealt with multiple issues, including breaking the same leg twice. Don't expect Brown to play 16 games; if you draft him, just hope he's healthy when it counts. Brown is excellent goal line runner and is a very good receiver out of the backfield. He could earn a decent amount of playing time due to a lack of competition deeper on the depth chart. With Foster returning from back surgery, you never know how that injury will respond or how the coaches will manage his health. Brown is a top tier handcuff if healthy, yet draft with caution.

2013 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
9.06 Fantasytaz - Jim Day - David Wilson looks to be the #1 in NY but he still needs to show he can protect the QB, if he falters at all then Brown becomes a very nice selection, but even if not, he should still see plenty of chances, especially at the goal line. He did average over 5 yards a carry and had 8 touchdowns in just 73 attempts in 2012.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2
July 2nd 2013
9.03 Gridiron Experts - Been wanting to get this guy on all of my fantasy squad this year and haven't had much luck. Curious that I landed him in a mock filled with other insiders. Maybe they aren't as enthusiastic about Brown's potential as I am. I see him as a Brandon Jacobs type banger, but with much more talent. Brown should see most of the goal line carries for a team that consistently scores a lot of rushing touchdowns.

8.11 CBSSports - David Wilson is the guy to target for the Giants this year, but Brown will get his share of carries in this tandem. And Brown should be the one working at the goal line, and he could also be used more than expected in passing situations if Wilson struggles in pass protection. I was fine getting him here as my fourth running back.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #3
July 9th, 2013
7.08 DraftSharks - I like Wilson's talent the same as most folks. But I also won't forget the fact that he spent most of last year on the sideline, with coaches saying he wasn't ready for even a complementary backfield role. Brown, meanwhile, looked terrific when he got the ball. I'd bet on Wilson putting up bigger numbers, but I'm also open to the possibility of Brown outscoring him. At the least, he should be the goal-line back under a coach who has long favored a 2-RB approach.
