Patriots | Donald Brown a good fit in New England?

Sun, 20 Mar 2016 16:40:00 -0700

New England Patriots RB Donald Brown is a "perfect" signing, according to San Diego Chargers president John Spanos. "I would bet anything he's going to be a productive player for them," Spanos said.

Fantasy Tip: Despite Spanos' optimism, Brown still has to make New England's roster before he will have a chance to be productive. It doesn't hurt to keep tabs on him, but keep your expectations modest.

Patriots | Donald Brown financials

Sun, 20 Mar 2016 00:57:13 -0700

New England Patriots RB Donald Brown will have a $965,000 salary for the 2016 season. The deal includes an $885,000 salary, a $50,000 signing bonus, and a $30,000 workout bonus. His cap number is worth $680,000. The Patriots also gave the running back $300,000 in guaranteed money.

Fantasy Tip: Brown could stick around since one-third of his salary will come in guaranteed money, but coach Bill Belichick sometimes runs through running backs at a fast clip. Beware if he makes the roster and starts, because there is no guarantee he will have a regular role.

Patriots | Donald Brown agrees to deal with Pats

Wed, 16 Mar 2016 12:13:08 -0700

Free-agent RB Donald Brown (Chargers) agreed to terms with the New England Patriots Wednesday, March 16. Details of the contract were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots did have a need at running back with LeGarrette Blount being a free agent. Brown is more of the same type of running back as Dion Lewis and James White, though, so his playing time could be limited. Don't select him with the intention of starting him.

Chargers | Donald Brown struggles

Thu, 24 Dec 2015 21:34:50 -0800

San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown had 14 carries for 17 yards and a touchdown and three catches for 33 yards in a 23-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Although Brown did see more carries with Melvin Gordon sidelined, he struggled to do much with them. Danny Woodhead is the San Diego back to own at FantasyScore going forward.

Chargers | Donald Brown receives praise

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 13:39:26 -0800

San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown received praise from head coach Mike McCoy after Week 15 against the Miami Dolphins. The Chargers were happy with Brown's performance.

Fantasy Tip: Brown had 12 carries for 90 yards and also caught two passes for 14 yards against Miami in a game that saw Melvin Gordon leave with a knee injury. With Gordon out for the final two games of the season, Brown could be a sneaky deep sleeper on FantasyScore against the Oakland Raiders this Thursday night.

Chargers | Donald Brown staying put

Tue, 03 Nov 2015 09:22:52 -0800

San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown had interested teams calling about him, but he won't be traded after RB Branden Oliver (toe) was injured.

Fantasy Tip: Brown ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is merely depth and has no FantasyScore viability right now.
