Huddle Up: Brown, who was thought to be the clear backup to Arian Foster, apparently wasn't thought much of by the Texans' new coaching staff which released the veteran back two days after not playing him in the preseason opener. As to who is the Texans' No. 2 RB, take your pick between Jonathan Grimes and sixth-round rookie draft pick Alfred Blue. It won't be Dennis Johnson or rookie free agent Tim Cornett who were also shown the door Monday.

Huddle Up: The former N.Y. Giant Brown would seem to rate an edge over the sixth-round rookie Blue, and this could come into play if Arian Foster's health issues flare up again. Still, Gary Kubiak and his run-oriented attack are now in Baltimore, so don't expect the fantasy gold that was the Texans' ground game a few seasons ago.

Huddle Up: With Ben Tate gone, the Texans needed a RB2 behind Arian Foster, and they filled that bill with Brown, who had a career-high 8 rushing TDs in 2012 and followed that up with career bests in touches (159) and yards from scrimmage (595) this past season.

Huddle Up: The Texans could use some veteran Arian Foster insurance, and Brown is a viable option for that role.

Huddle Up: Brown missed the first half of the season with a leg fracture but returned to lead the team in rushing with 492 yards and 3 TDs in 8 games. Brown shouldn't be asking for the moon, but the Giants do need to listen given the uncertainty of fellow RB David Wilson's recovery from neck surgery.

Huddle Up: Brown still has the final concussion-protocol hurdles to clear, but he's on track to play in the Giants' season finale against the Redskins.

Huddle Up: It could be the Peyton Hillis show next week.

Huddle Up: We might have finally found a viable fantasy back in New York. Unlike Brandon Jacobs' big game a few weeks back, there is no reason to think Brown shouldn't keep producing. Barring injuries, of course.

Huddle Up: It'll be interesting to see how much playing time he gets right out of the gate, but the Giants might finally be getting some stability at the running back position.

Huddle Up: The Giants have a bye this weekend so definitely look for Brown back in action Week 10.

Huddle Up: Five RBs already have logged carries for the Giants this season with Brown set to join the mix in less than 2 weeks. His forte was goalline work a season ago, finishing with 8 TDs, but with the remainder of David Wilson's season a question mark due to a neck injury, Brown could easily lay claim to the lead-back role when he works himself back into game shape.

Huddle Up: Brown's role will depend on whether or not David Wilson is back in the mix and how effective Brandon Jacobs and/or Peyton Hillis are. But just knowing he's coming back soon is reason enough to stash him on your roster if you have room.

Huddle Up: Hey, there's no need for all those new Brandon Jacobs owners we've been talking about to get too worked up as Brown isn't eligible to come off short-term IR until Week 10 at the earliest.
Posted: 10/12/2013 1:49pm ET
Huddle Up: If Brown is available in your league, now is a good time to grab him. Brandon Jacobs is the only healthy running back the Giants have right now, so Brown is sure to see plenty of playing time once he returns.
Posted: 9/24/2013 6:52pm ET
Huddle Up: Not that Brown would've made all the difference, but he certainly could've helped the 0-3 Giants as RBs David Wilson, Brandon Jacobs have combined for all of 111 yards and 1 TD on 46 carries so far.
Posted: 9/3/2013 6:12pm ET
Huddle Up: Pump the brakes a bit on the earlier report, which was a boon for Wilson. Brown would be out until at least mid-season if he was put on short-term IR, but a sooner return would damage Wilson's long-term value.
Posted: 9/3/2013 2:51pm ET
Huddle Up: This is big news for David Wilson owners, who won't have to deal with Brown cutting into his playing time until at least Week 10, if he can make it back healthy and reprise his role as Wilson's fantasy foil.
Posted: 8/30/2013 3:54pm ET
Huddle Up: If Brown lands on the IR/DTR list, he'll be available for Week 8 at the earliest so his fantasy owners need to stay on top of the situation.
Posted: 8/30/2013 9:43am ET
Huddle Up: This is a relatively positive prognosis for Brown, though he'll still be sidelined for the start of the season. However, a quick return might preclude the Giants for looking for a longer-term solution (like Michael Turner or Willis McGahee) for their backfield committee and simply get by with what they have until Brown returns.
Posted: 8/30/2013 12:45am ET
Huddle Up: Avoiding surgery certainly would expedite Brown's return, but his fantasy owners shouldn't realistically count on having the RB for the first quarter of the season either way.
Posted: 8/29/2013 11:30pm ET
Huddle Up: The Giants were one of the few NFL teams playing a number of regulars in the final week of the preseason, and it's cost N.Y. their No. 2 back -- a player who was being selected as the 35th RB overall in fantasy drafts. Da'Rel Scott, Ryan Torain and Michael Cox are next up on Big Blue's depth chart, but starter David Wilson should now see his fantasy value go up with Brown suddenly out of the picture.
