Chargers | Donald Brown receives praise

Fri, 12 Dec 2014 14:14:41 -0800

San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown received praise from offensive coordinator Frank Reich, and the team thinks Brown remains capable of explosive plays despite a 2.3-yard-per-carry average this year. "Donald's been what we wanted him to be," Reich said. "He's a very smart player. He hasn't had to carry the load running the ball. But for the role that we've played him in, he's played smart; he gets the job done. I think he grades out high week in and week out. I just think he's an excellent player who's a great team player and makes us better as whole offense."

Fantasy Tip: Are the Chargers setting up to have Brown ($3,000) see most of the work if Ryan Mathews (ankle) doesn't play? That could be the case, but the unknown isn't worth it at FantasyScore, especially with SD facing one of the best run-stopping units in the league in the Denver Broncos.

Chargers | Bolts managing Ryan Mathews' touches

Mon, 24 Nov 2014 16:32:38 -0800

San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (knee, shoulder) has 175 rushing yards in two games since returning from a knee injury, but he's carried the ball an average of 14 times in those two games, with just four carries in the fourth quarter and two in the red zone. Head coach Mike McCoy said that team is monitoring Mathews' touches as he makes his way back from injury. RBs Branden Oliver and Donald Brown are still being sprinkled in. Mathews suffered a shoulder injury in the second half but returned to the game, and the injury isn't considered serious.

Fantasy Tip: Mathews looked healthy and spry against the St. Louis Rams in Week 12. However, be careful not to overvalue him heading into Week 13 in a very tough matchup against a strong Baltimore Ravens run unit on the road at FantasyScore.

Chargers | Donald Brown puts in full practice

Wed, 12 Nov 2014 13:17:28 -0800

San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown (concussion) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Brown ($3,000) returned in Week 9 but had just four carries for 23 yards and added a catch for six yards. With Ryan Mathews' (knee) return likely this weekend, Brown probably won't see enough touches to be worth a lineup spot at FantasyScore.

Chargers | Five touches for Donald Brown

Sun, 02 Nov 2014 15:31:18 -0800

San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown (concussion) was active in Week 9 against the Miami Dolphins. He ran four times for a team-best 23 yards, and he added a reception for six yards.

Fantasy Tip: Remember Brown going forward. No one is running the ball really well in San Diego right now, and he has a chance to re-claim his job. FantasyScore owners will want to steer clear of him for a while until he can garner at least 10-15 touches per game again.

Sun, 02 Nov 2014 08:34:49 -0800

San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown (concussion) is active Sunday, Nov. 2, for Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: Brown ($3,000; 6.0% of your cap) isn't explosive enough to consider with a sparse workload on FantasyScore this week.

Chargers | Donald Brown participates fully

Thu, 30 Oct 2014 13:10:44 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown (concussion) practiced fully Thursday, Oct. 30.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Brown will be able to play this week, though Branden Oliver will likely see most of the work out of the backfield and is reasonably priced at $5,900 on FantasyScore.

Chargers | Donald Brown a full go

Wed, 29 Oct 2014 13:09:45 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown (concussion) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Brown looks to have a good chance to play in Week 9. Branden Oliver likely will receive most of the work at running back with Brown playing the rest of the time. Brown costs $3,000 on FantasyScore but is probably not a good option.

Chargers | Donald Brown practicing

Wed, 29 Oct 2014 12:05:54 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown (concussion) is participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Brown may have a chance to play in Week 9 but likely will be behind Branden Oliver on the depth chart. Brown would be used more as a receiver than a runner. Brown costs $3,000 on FantasyScore, but owners probably can find better options to use.

Chargers | Donald Brown might practice soon

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 18:42:39 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown (concussion) missed his third straight game in Week 8 Thursday, Oct. 23, against the Denver Broncos, but he might be able to return to practice Monday, Oct. 27.

Fantasy Tip: When Brown returns, it is possible he finds himself in a very crowded backfield. Rookie Branden Oliver has handled himself well, and Ryan Mathews is also nearing a return. FantasyScore will want to see how the situation plays out before investing in any of them for Week 9.
