Lions trade for RB Ronnie Brown - [Full Article]

The Ronnie Brown experiment in Philadelphia is over as the Eagles traded the underperforming running back to the Detroit Lions for running back Jerome Harrison and an undisclosed 2013 draft pick.

Fantasy Impact: 

With Jahvid Best suffering from a concussion, and the Lions generally weak between the tackles, Ronnie Brown should fill the need of early down runner, and possibly more if Jahvid Best misses significant time (he very well may not). It remains to be seen exactly how Brown will platoon with Maurice Morris and Keiland Williams, but we doubt he is handed the keys in his first week with the team.
