Lions | Ronnie Brown acquired

The Detroit Lions acquired RB Ronnie Brown from the Philadelphia Eagles Tuesday, Oct. 18, in exchange for RB Jerome Harrison and an undisclosed 2013 draft pick.

Fantasy Tip: Brown's fantasy value as a depth piece is encouraging in Detroit; he enters a situation where he could fill a specific role, and he may be the better option over Maurice Morris. Also, Jahvid Best's (concussion) availability for Week 7 is in question, making Brown an intriguing addition on the wire, especially if you own Best. Another positive: Brown has familiarity with offensive coordinator Scott Linehan from their days in Miami.
