If you're looking for some early fantasy football advice heading into the 2014 NFL season, LeSean McCoy has a hot tip for you: Former Eagles running back Bryce Brown is going to be the 'Day 1' starter in Buffalo. 

Brown was traded from Philadelphia to Buffalo during the final day of the NFL Draft on Saturday. If Brown were to earn the starting spot with the Bills, he'd have to beat out Fred Jackson or C.J. Spiller for the job, something Jackson doesn't exactly see happening.

It's not likely Brown will start in Buffalo, but general manager Doug Whaley didn't rule it out over the weekend. All Whaley did was promise that there will be a competition.

"I can't sum up what the backfield is, but I will sum up what one of our philosophies as a team is and that's 'competition brings out the best in everybody,'" Whaley said, via the Buffalo News. "We want competition -- we don't want people coming in and saying, 'here is my spot and I'm safe.' We want people to push people to be better."

As for McCoy, he seems to be highly supportive of every ex-Eagle that landed somewhere else this offseason. Back in April, the Philly running back said that Michael Vick is 'way better' than Geno Smith and that Vick would 'be the Jets' starting quarterback this year.'
