2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
The addition of Trent Richardson in Indianapolis should have meant the end of fantasy relevancy for Donald Brown, but an incredibly awful season from Richardson meant that Brown stuck around and even finished the season with significantly more production than his backfield counterpart. Brown tallied seven total touchdowns over his final eight games of the season. Still, Brown was the odd man out in Indianapolis and now, he finds himself in a new situation, across the country in San Diego. Brown will likely go undrafted in most leagues, but due to Ryan Mathews and his susceptibilities to injuries, Brown becomes a viable handcuff option, as he would be the most likely player to see a significant uptick in touches should Mathews miss time.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Ryan Mathews not practicing Thursday
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Dec 18, 12:39 pm

San Diego Chargers
Ryan Mathews (ankle) again not practicing. Remains to be seen if he's back this regular season. Wasn't close to playing last Sunday. (Michael Gehlken on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It sounds like Mathews will miss Week 16 leaving Branden Oliver and Donald Brown to carry the workload. Neither will be fantasy options against a good San Francisco run defense.


Injury Ryan Mathews misses another practice Thursday
Right ankle injury

San Diego Chargers
Chargers RB Ryan Mathews not practicing today. Yet to this week after right ankle injury Sunday. (Michael Gehlken on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The link provides footage of how the injury happened; suffice it to say Mathews faces long odds of playing this week with any kind of effectiveness if he is somehow cleared in time. Making matters worse, Mathews' long injury history and the opponent this week (the Denver Broncos) are also working against him. Donald Brown has overtaken Branden Oliver in recent weeks, but the two would likely share touches if Mathews is forced to sit out.


Injury Donald Brown returns to practice
Missed three games due to concussion
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Oct 29, 6:09 pm

San Diego Chargers
SAN DIEGO (AP) San Diego Chargers running back Donald Brown has been cleared to return to practice after missing three games with a concussion. Brown practiced Wednesday for the first time since being injured in a victory against the New York Jets on Oct. 5. Running back Ryan Mathews continues to rehab his right knee, which he injured in a victory against Seattle in Week 2. "I don't think Ryan is too far away," quarterback Philip Rivers said. (USA Today)

FFToday's Take: The Chargers backfield has been decimated by injury where Brandon Oliver has stepped up nicely for fantasy owners. However, Donald Brown's return and a tough matchup with the Dolphins figures to limit Oliver's upside this week. Likewise, Brown's fantasy upside remains limited with the impending return of Ryan Mathews (knee) looming.
