News:Corey (Philly) Brown racked up 12 receptions for 84 yards Saturday as Ohio State won 17-16 at Michigan State.
Analysis: With quarterback Braxton Miller completing just 16 passes, Corey (Philly) Brown was the primary dump off for Miller in the face of a tough Spartans defensive front. Since Brown had just 20 catches entering the contest, his output Saturday appears to be an outlier. However, we'll monitor his performance going forward to see if he in fact takes on a larger portion of the passing attack.
News: Ohio State wide receiver Verlon Reed tore his ACL during an onside kick attempt last week, and with DeVier Posey's future in limbo, the Buckeyes are razor thin at the position.
Analysis: The only good news is that Corey Brown will return this week, but he has not been a factor even when healthy. Even tight end Jake Stoneburner has been rendered fantasy useless.

News: Ohio State wide receivers Corey Brown, Chris Fields, and Verlon Reed are expected to be the starters when the season begins.
Analysis: To me, the guy to watch here is Chris Fields, who will be stepping in for Dane Sanzenbacher. However, both Brown and Reed have big play ability. Both Fields and Brown are late round target gambles in BCS leagues with upside.
News: Earlier this April former Ohio State wide receiver James Jackson transferred from the school and has headed to Division II powerhouse Grand Valley State. Jackson will be eligible to play this year and will have three remaining years.
Analysis: With DeVier Posey serving a five-game suspension, the next leading wide receiver for the Buckeyes is Corey Brown, who had just seven catches in 2010. Jackson's field stretching ability will certainly be missed in Columbus.
