Brown was used as a sub for the injured van Aanholt and had an unfortunate own goal in the 3-1 win over Crystal Palace Monday.

Brown was doing some sloppy defending when he accidentally heeled in a rebound shot off the post and into the back of the net. Brown is susceptible to own goals and may have lost his starting role, so he is completely off limits for fantasy at this point.

Brown registered his first clean sheet of the season in Sunderland's scoreless draw with Burnley on Saturday.

The Sunderland defense hasn't been great this season but got the shutout against a Burnley side that has struggled even more to score. Sunderland are much better at home, where they will face Swansea and Stoke in the next two weeks, though the former will be a tough team to blank.

Brown was given a straight red card in the fourth minute of Saturday's match against Hull City.

Brown has now picked up three red cards this season, although one was overturned on appeal. It's entirely possible that he could get a ban that extends passed the standard three-matches, which means he will miss out in matches against Manchester City, Arsenal, and West Brom, with Liverpool a possibility after that.

Brown had a red card earlier in the season overturned against Stoke City. This challenge was a bit more severe and will likely be upheld. Brown has been very reliable, playing all 90 minutes of all nine of his starts. Look for him to get right back into the starting lineup after his suspension.
