Bears | Curtis Brinkley added

Tue, 13 Aug 2013 17:09:23 -0700

The Chicago Bears signed free-agent RB Curtis Brinkley (Chargers) to a one-year contract Monday, Aug. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Brinkley will battle Armando Allen (hamstring) for the No. 3 job behind Matt Forte and Michael Bush. Unless injuries decimate the Bears backfield, Brinkley and Allen have little to no fantasy appeal.

Chargers | Norv Turner mum on RB situation

Wed, 19 Dec 2012 15:39:42 -0800

San Diego Chargers head coach Norv Turner didn't reveal his plans at running back in Week 16 after RB Ryan Mathews (clavicle) was placed on the Injured Reserve. "Well, we've got a chance to get Ronnie Brown back" Turner said. "Jackie Battle will get a chance to play. And Brink (Curtis Brinkley ) played some yesterday, though I don't know that he would play on third down. And we'll probably add Edwin Baker to the 53-man roster. I don't know that he would be active, but we'd have to see where Ronnie Brown is."

Chargers | Curtis Brinkley leads way

Sun, 16 Dec 2012 20:14:42 -0800

San Diego Chargers RB Curtis Brinkley had six carries for 42 yards in the Week 15 game against the Carolina Panthers, while RB Jackie Battle had three totes for just two yards.

Fantasy Tip: Brinkley and Battle will likely split up the carries if RB Ronnie Brown (hamstring) cannot play in Week 16. That's because RB Ryan Mathews (clavicle) left Sunday's game with a season-ending injury. Brinkley might get first crack after looking more impressive after Mathews left the game, but both he and Battle are only worth a look as a flex play at best in deeper leagues in Week 16. Even that is a bit risky at this juncture of the fantasy season.

Mon, 10 Sep 2012 22:51:29 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Curtis Brinkley carried 10 times for just 12 yards in Week 1 against the Oakland Raiders Monday, Sept. 10. He and WR Eddie Royal actually led the team in rushing yardage.

Chargers | Ronnie Brown might start in Week 1

Fri, 07 Sep 2012 18:12:18 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (clavicle) appears to be targeting a Week 2 return, so RB Ronnie Brown is likely to get the start in his team debut in Week 1 against the Oakland Raiders Monday, Sept. 10. RBs Jackie Battle and Curtis Brinkley are also in the mix.

Fantasy Tip: Brown might be a decent one-week RB3 or 'flex' fantasy play, especially if you were holding out hope for Mathews, but don't add Brown in place of a player with longer term value to your squad.

Sun, 12 Aug 2012 20:44:58 -0700

San Diego Chargers head coach Norv Turner indicated Sunday, Aug. 12, that the team will use a running back by committee approach until RB Ryan Mathews (clavicle) is healthy enough to return. "Right now, it'd probably be a mix" between RBs Ronnie Brown, Le'Ron McClain and Curtis Brinkley.

Chargers | Edwin Baker, Le'Ron McClain in mix for carries

Tue, 26 Jun 2012 19:11:25 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews is the unquestioned starting tailback, but it gets murky after that on the depth chart. RB Ronnie Brown is viewed as being at the tail end of his career. Brown will try to hold off RB Curtis Brinkley for the primary backup role behind Mathews. RB Edwin Baker and FB Le'Ron McClain will also be in the mix for carries.
