Ronnie Brown | RB
2011 Fantasy Football Outlook: Ronnie Brown gave it his best shot but the guy just couldn’t stay healthy enough to be a starting tailback in the NFL and is now relegated to begin a backup for LeSean McCoy. While Brown could be a waiver wire option if McCoy finds the shelf, he doesn’t project to be a major thorn in McCoy’s side during the season. Like other, veterans found out a year ago like Mike Bell and Jerome Harrison, this is McCoy’s show, and they are just a side note.
While Brown gives the Eagles, a respectable veteran for depth, don’t view Brown as a runner to pay attention too as long as McCoy is around.

One of the big knocks on Ronnie Brown coming out of college is that he failed to take on even a full load at the college level as he teamed up with Caddillac Williams in Auburn’s backfield. As it turned out neither of the Tigers standout running backs could stay healthy enough to take on a full season as a feature NFL runner as injuries have plagued their carriers.
Now a free agent Brown is likely to land with a new team as the Dolphins draft Daniel Thomas to be the main feature runner, and they are looking for a change of pace back like Darren Sproles to compliment him. Brown will play in a two back committee once again as no team will trust him to stay healthy for a full season. When on the field, Brown can make a difference but then again, his 3.7 yard per carry average from 2010, might suggest his injuries have finally caught up to his on the field performance.
Ronnie Brown would be a clear first round pick in fantasy if he could only stay healthy. Unfortunately, Brown has been plagued by injury his entire career and there is no reason to believe he won’t have issues again. Start him while you’ve got him and cross your fingers that he can play most of the games.
2010 Fantasy Football Outlook
2009 Fantasy Year In Review: Ronnie Brown was putting together a great fantasy season before he suffered another injury in week nine and was done for the season. For all the success Brown’s had on the field it seems like he will never produce a full season for fantasy owners.
Before the injury Brown was on pace for at least 1,200 yards rushing and 16 plus touchdowns when you factor in that he even throws touchdowns in.
2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: Brown’s foot is making good progress, and he is fully expected to be with the team in July for camp and practice in full contact. This is a very good sign that Brown should be ready to roll to start the season as long as he doesn’t suffer a setback in camp.
Assuming Brown is healthy by the time your draft starters, look for him as a top twenty option in the running game. When he’s on the field he will play more like a top ten fantasy running back. If you do end up selecting him, it would be a very good idea to get Ricky Williams as a hand cuff runner so that if Brown goes down again, you have protection.
