Patriots | Donald Brown does not practice

Sun, 07 Aug 2016 21:55:21 -0700

New England Patriots RB Donald Brown (hamstring) returned to the practice field Sunday, Aug. 7, after three straight absences, but he did not participate.

Fantasy Tip: Brown is battling for touches in the crowded New England backfield, and it's a rather fluid backfield situation. He could very well end up with a meaningful role, or he could be completely shut out. For now, avoid him in fantasy leagues until his situation becomes more certain.

Patriots | New England perfect spot for Donald Brown

Sun, 07 Aug 2016 15:31:24 -0700

New England Patriots RB Donald Brown could not have landed in a better spot when he signed with the Patriots back in March, according to Hall-of-Fame executive Bill Polian, who chose the 29-year-old in the first round of the 2009 draft while he was the general manager of the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: Brown has flown completely under the radar this offseason, which is a bit surprising since Dion Lewis is recovering from an ACL tear. New England head coach Bill Belichick said Wednesday the former Colt is "a pleasure to coach", while Polian believes Brown is still a very good blocker and receiver as well as an explosive runner who can thrive when asked to run stretch plays. While he's not even guaranteed a roster spot at the moment, expect Brown to emerge as the primary backup to both Lewis and Blount.

Patriots | Donald Brown embracing opportunity

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 08:13:08 -0700

New England Patriots RB Donald Brown led all running backs with 19 receptions in Patriots minicamp, and he is taking advantage of the opportunity to contribute in any way possible. His most likely path to a role is as the top backup to RB LeGarrette Blount. Brown is not considered a lock to make the team, according to Mark Daniels, of the Providence Journal. New England would carry a $300,000 salary cap charge if Brown is released.

Fantasy Tip: The veteran runner is known as a one-dimensional back and doesn't have the most natural hands, but injuries could provide him an opportunity. He has no fantasy value heading into draft season.

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.

San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown ran 21 times for 81 yards in the Week 17 game against the Denver Broncos, and he added two receptions for 10 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Brown did well down the stretch and will find work somewhere in 2016, whether it is back with the Chargers or with another team. He showed he still has plenty left in the tank.

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.
