Chargers | Chargers want Donald Brown fresh

Sat, 20 Sep 2014 17:51:07 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown will not return in kicks in Week 3 because the team wants to keep him fresh for his expanded role in the backfield. RB Branden Oliver will return kicks in Brown's place.

Fantasy Tip: Brown was signed in the offseason in case Ryan Matthews suffered an injury, and relieving him of return duties reaffirms the fact that Brown will have a big role in the offense while Matthews is out. His $4,600 salary (9.2% of cap) at FantasyScore makes him very affordable, but with the Chargers facing a Bills defense that has been beaten up by the pass and stout against the run, Brown could struggle to make a significant impact in Week 3.

Chargers | Two rookie RBs battling

Fri, 29 Aug 2014 22:48:27 -0700

San Diego Chargers rookie RBs Marion Grice and Branden Oliver remain on the roster as of Friday, Aug. 29, but only one is the expected to be retained before the 53-man roster cut deadline set for 1pm PT.

Fantasy Tip: Whoever wins the job will simply be the No. 4 running back behind Ryan Mathews, Danny Woodhead and Donald Brown, so their fantasy appeal will be minimal.
