Wed, 20 Nov 2013 13:04:07 -0800
San Diego Chargers WR Vincent Brown (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 20.
Fantasy Tip: Brown hasn't been on the same page with Philip Rivers lately, and the matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs will be rough. Brown should remain on your bench for the time being.
Tue, 29 Oct 2013 16:56:32 -0700
San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers has been able to trust WR Vincent Brown on contested catches this season. "I've thrown Vincent Brown a bunch of those balls," Rivers said. "It's trusting that he's going to come in there, and he's going to go up high and make a good, tough, catch." Brown is tied for third on the team with 26 catches this year.
Fantasy Tip: Brown's precise route-running skills have endeared him to Rivers, and he's the QB's go-to guy when a tough catch is needed. Brown isn't putting up consistent numbers week in and week out, though, making him a frustrating lineup decision. He's more valuable in standard formats as a flex player.

Houston Texans FS Ed Reed (hip) is not expected to play in the team's Week 1 game against the San Diego Chargers Monday, Sept. 9, despite practicing all week on a limited basis. Reed underwent arthroscopic hip surgery in April and received injections two weeks ago to speed his recovery. S Shiloh Keo will start in his place.
Fantasy Tip: This is good news for Philip Rivers and the Chargers' aerial attack in Week 1. Vincent Brown should be a good play as the team's No. 1 wideout.
Tue, 03 Sep 2013 12:19:53 -0700
San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead is being used as a slot receiver and caught two passes in his preseason debut against the Arizona Cardinals. WR Eddie Royal (lung, concussion) has been sidelined in the preseason with a bruised lung and concussion. WRs Vincent Brown and Malcom Floyd are expected to be the starting wide receivers in Week 1. Woodhead may join the offense in third-down situations, and WR Keenan Allen should mostly work out of the slot.
Thu, 15 Aug 2013 17:37:36 -0700
San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers said he believes WR Vincent Brown has everything a team looks for in a wide receiver and thinks Brown could have a big role on the offense this season. "He's an easy guy to throw the ball to," Rivers said. "He's so smooth, so strong to the ball, so sharp. ... If he can be out there on a consistent basis, which obviously if he is healthy he will be, people are going to say, 'Shoot, he's one of the staples of (their) offense.'"
Mon, 12 Aug 2013 16:14:18 -0700
San Diego Chargers WRs Eddie Royal, Vincent Brown and Keenan Allen are all taking first team reps in 11-on-11 drills in practice Monday, Aug. 12.
Mon, 12 Aug 2013 15:52:31 -0700
San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (knee) was carted off the field after suffering an apparent right knee injury during practice Monday, Aug. 12. Floyd was receiving treatment on his knee for a few minutes before being carted off.
Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation because more information should be coming out over the next day or so. If the injury is serious, the fantasy values of Vincent Brown, Keenan Allen, Robert Meachem and Eddie Royal could all increase because they could get bigger roles on offense.
Fri, 09 Aug 2013 20:20:50 -0700

Tue, 06 Aug 2013 13:03:17 -0700

Tue, 25 Jun 2013 08:57:07 -0700
San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen worked with the first-team offense on the final day of the team's minicamp WRs Danario Alexander and Eddie Royal dinged up with undisclosed injuries. Allen said he's comfortable with the playbook and the offense's terminology. "He's done a nice job buying into what we're doing," head coach Mike McCoy said. "It's a change for him. We're moving guys around, and the skill-position guys really need to know every position because you never know when Philip is going to check at the line of scrimmage. You have an idea where you're playing, but when it comes to a formation, Philip can audible something whenever he wants. ... You've got to know every position."
Fantasy Tip: It'll be tough for Allen to earn a starting role at a position that's probably the deepest on San Diego's depth chart. Alexander, Malcom Floyd and Vincent Brown figure to rotate often, and the Chargers also have Royal and Robert Meachem. Barring an injury or unforeseen change, it's probably best to leave Allen for the waiver wire in redraft leagues.
Thu, 13 Jun 2013 15:31:27 -0700
San Diego Chargers WR Robert Meachem is still buried on the depth chart, but this new offense gives him a shot to produce more than he did last year.
Fantasy Tip: That won't take much, if he's given the chance in Ken Whisenhunt's O. Problem is, there are a ton of options at wideout, and it's a very open competition for targets. Danario Alexander and Malcom Floyd are the two best bets for receptions, and Eddie Royal, Vincent Brown, rookie Keenan Allen and Richard Goodman will complicate matters for the secondary options.
Sun, 09 Jun 2013 17:03:19 -0700
San Diego Chargers WRs Keenan Allen, Richard Goodman and Robert Meachem did not rotate as starters during organized team activities (OTAs), but they are very much in the picture and pushing for roster spots behind WRs Danario Alexander, Vincent Brown, Malcom Floyd and Eddie Royal.
Sun, 09 Jun 2013 17:02:14 -0700
During organized team activities (OTAs), San Diego Chargers WR Vincent Brown (ankle) rotated with WRs Danario Alexander and Malcom Floyd for first-team reps. Brown, who is fully recovered from a broken ankle, is fully recovered and expected to see a pronounced role in his third NFL season.
Mon, 03 Jun 2013 16:09:09 -0700
San Diego Chargers WR Vincent Brown is rotating with the starters during organized team activities. Brown, who was expected to have an expanded role in the offense in 2012 before missing the 2012 season with a broken ankle, is expected to have an expanded role in 2013.
Fantasy Tip: The fact that Brown has seen his role increase during organized team activities is a good sign. If Brown can stay healthy, everything points to a big year for the Chargers wide receiver. Monitor how he is used in training camp and preseason games, but Brown could be a strong No. 3 wide receiver for your fantasy roster.
Thu, 30 May 2013 12:13:22 -0700
San Diego Chargers WR Vincent Brown (ankle) is expected to be a major focal point on offense this season. He was building a strong chemistry with QB Philip Rivers before his injury, and the two are expected to work on their chemistry during training camp.
Fantasy Tip: Brown was supposed to have a big role on offense last season but missed the entire season because of a broken ankle. He is expected to have a similar role this season, which will help his fantasy value. If he is able to build that chemistry with Rivers, he should be seen as not worse than a No. 4 fantasy wide receiver.
Mon, 20 May 2013 15:30:01 -0700

Fri, 02 Nov 2012 17:06:30 -0700
San Diego Chargers WR Danario Alexander said he is still learning the team's playbook and working at getting on the same page as QB Philip Rivers. Rivers and Alexander worked together closely the past two weeks to build chemistry. Alexander caught three passes for a team-high 61 yards against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 9, which he said is just the beginning. Rivers was impressed with Alexander's performance. "Danario was big and he was great. He had a third down slant way down in there inside the ten, then a couple more end routes, an out route that got us going. He was good, he was comfortable. It's just amazing," Rivers said of his new weapon.
Fantasy Tip: Alexander is worth the look if you're hurting at wide receiver. Robert Meachem has been a huge disappointment thus far for the Chargers, plus he is dealing with an injury, as is WR Eddie Royal. Vincent Brown, who the team hoped would be able to return, appears to still be at least several weeks away from hitting the field if he does at all.

"This offseason, being with the guys and being familiar with the offense, it's been an easier transition and it's helped me trying to make plays," Brown said. Head coach Norv Turner said Brown has grown up since last year. "He's had a great offseason, he's in the middle of having an outstanding training camp, and he obviously is a playmaker so he's a guy that's going to figure real strongly in what we do," Turner said.
