Chargers | Donald Brown to have prominent role?

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 11:15:57 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown is likely to fill the void as the team's every-down running back with RB Ryan Mathews (knee) sidelined.

Fantasy Tip: Danny Woodhead will be involved, too, especially in passing situations, making him more valuable in PPR leagues. Even with an increased workload, Brown may not be an attractive FantasyScore option in Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills on the road.

Chargers | Donald Brown sees more touches

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 17:05:20 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown saw most of the snaps after RB Ryan Mathews (knee) went down in the Week 2 game against the Seattle Seahawks. He finished with seven carries for 21 yards while also added three receptions for 10 yards. RB Danny Woodhead actually led the team with 32 yards on eight rushes, and he had four catches for 28 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Brown and Woodhead should each see increased touches for as long as Mathews is sidelined. Both are decent low-end RB2s or flex plays heading into Week 3.

Chargers | Trio of RBs all involved early

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 19:51:22 -0700

San Diego Chargers RBs Ryan Mathews, Danny Woodhead and Donald Brown each saw action on the first three offensive plays from scrimmage in the Week 1 game against the Arizona Cardinals Monday, Sept. 8.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners, and those in weekly leagues, will want to watch this situation all evening. It might be a matter of the hot hand winning the lion's share of the carries. The team has three capable backs, and that kind of situation is maddening for fantasye owners.

Chargers | Ryan Mathews remains lead back

Thu, 20 Mar 2014 11:19:12 -0700

San Diego Chargers general manager Tom Telesco said that RB Ryan Mathews remains the team's every-down back despite the signing of RB Donald Brown in free agency. "We know Ryan is our bell cow," Telesco said. "He's our No. 1 back. He had an excellent year last year. And we all know what Danny Woodhead can do in his role. We saw that for 16 games last year. And we think Donald can come in and add to that, too, and give us some different options. And a different style, too. The more weapons we can have for Philip Rivers, the better."

Fantasy Tip: Mathews figures to be a nice RB2/3 again this year, even with Woodhead and Brown around to steal touches from him in the backfield. Mathews loses some luster in PPR leagues, however, because of the presence of the other two backs for passing situations.
