NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora is reporting that the Dolphins will place RB Ronnie Brown on injured reserve, which effectively ends his season.
Brown, who injured his right foot last week, had developed into one of the best running backs in fantasy football. In fact, he was ninth in points at his position on NFL.com. But his season will be cut short for the second time since 2007.
In his absence, RB Ricky Williams will see a more prominent role and becomes a viable No. 1 fantasy back. QB Pat White also figures to see more time in the Wildcat, but he won’t make much of a fantasy impact.
Williams, on the other hand, will make a huge impact.
With games against teams with poor run defenses like Carolina, Buffalo, Kansas City, Tennessee and Houston still on the schedule, Williams is going to lead a lot of owners to a title.
