Chargers | Ronnie Brown could play in Week 6

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 09:34:55 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Ronnie Brown (concussion) could have a role in the passing game if he is cleared to play in Week 6. RB Branden Oliver likely will receive most of the carries during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Brown would be limited if he is active for the game, so owners may want to avoid using him until he is completely healthy. Oliver probably will receive most of the work during the game and could be a solid starting option on FantasyScore at $5,900.

Chargers | Branden Oliver has an opening

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 05:39:31 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Branden Oliver will likely have a week or two with the backfield mostly to himself after RB Donald Brown (concussion) suffered a concussion in Week 5. Oliver rushed 19 times for 114 yards and a touchdown Sunday, Oct. 5, and caught four passes for 68 yards and another score.

Fantasy Tip: Oliver is sure to be a hot waiver wire topic this week and could be a good play on FantasyScore in the interim.

Chargers | Chargers won't give up on run game

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 18:14:14 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown and RB Branden Oliver combined for 42 yards on 29 carries in Week 4, and although head coach Mike McCoy bashed the running game during a press conference Monday, Sept. 29, he also said that the team is committed to improving it. "We're going to be forced to run it more down the road, and we're going to run the football," McCoy said. "So we'll be successful, we just have to do a better job doing it. You've got to have balance without a doubt."

Fantasy Tip: While the Chargers aren't going to abandon the run game, but until things begin to turn around, Brown and Oliver probably aren't worth gambling on at FantasyScore, especially in Week 5 against the Jets and their top-ranked run defense.

Chargers | Branden Oliver may see more time

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 02:47:56 -0700

With injuries to both RB Ryan Mathews (knee) and Danny Woodhead (ankle/leg), RB Branden Oliver could see more playing time going forward with the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Tip: Oliver would be a clear No. 2 to Donald Brown assuming Mathews is out for a while. Woodhead may be done for the season, so owners wanting a backup for Brown should consider Oliver as a handcuff.

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.
