Chargers GM insists Ryan Mathews is 'bell cow' back
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/4/14) When asked about the signing of Donald Brown and what that means for the future of the Chargers' running backs, general manager Tom Telesco told 1090 The Fan in San Diego on Friday that Brown will "help supplement" the ground game and "play a different role than" Ryan Mathews and Danny Woodhead. He specifically mentioned Mathews as "our main back, our bell cow."

Telesco said basically the same things back in late March to the station. 

Brown was signed this spring to a three-year deal by Telesco, who helped scout Brown when he was with the Colts in 2009. But Mathews established himself as the team's primary back, meeting long-awaited expectations with a 1,255-yard, six-score season with another 189 yards and a score through the air. 

McCoy hints at hot-hand approach for running backs
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/25/14) Chargers coach Mike McCoy indicated Tuesday during the NFL owners meetings that he plans to use a hot-hand approach with his running backs in 2014 following the addition of Donald Brown joining Ryan Mathews and Danny Woodhead.

McCoy said his background after working for John Fox in Carolina is using multiple running backs.

"You get in there, you get on a little bit of a roll and you’re going to stay in there," McCoy said. "Donald is a perfect fit for our system, and that’s why we went after him and got him. He understands what we want to do offensively, not only in the passing game but in the running game and pass protection. ... We'll let Donald come in there and show us what he can do, and we'll try to take advantage of what he does best and go with the flow of the game."

Chargers' GM addresses crowded backfield
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/20/14) Chargers general manager Tom Telesco said Wednesday on 1090AM that Ryan Mathews remains the "bell cow" despite the addition of Donald Brown as a free agent this offseason, reports ESPN.

"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."

Making sense of the Chargers running back corps
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/12/14) Donald Brown saved the Colts' run game last year and became an example of a running back playing to some career-high standards whilst in a contract year. The payoff could have led to a starting job, but instead Brown finds himself in another running back mess with the Chargers.

The Chargers seemingly did this to secure depth at the position and to safeguard against not having a back in case Ryan Mathews and/or Danny Woodhead leave via free agency next offseason. They also picked up a back who can do anything Mathews or Woodhead does -- Brown is a good runner and receiver.

The feeling here is that Mathews will remain the primary rusher for the Chargers. The team went 6-0 in games he had at least 20 carries (8-2 in games where he had at least 16 carries), a stat the coaches will have a hard time ignoring. Brown could keep Mathews from 24-plus carry games like he had toward the end of last season but we'll still see Mathews dominate. Brown should also reduce Woodhead's touches, particularly after he faded down the stretch last season. 

But even with this piecemeal workload from Mathews and Woodhead, it's tough to envision Brown getting enough work to be the same kind of helpful Fantasy rusher he was last year. I might take him with a mid-round pick. 

Ryan Mathews dealing with a high ankle sprain
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/14/14) Chargers running back Ryan Mathews played through a high ankle sprain, according to San Diego Union-Tribune.

The typical recovery from the injury lasts four-to-six weeks, but Mathews didn't miss a game. Mathews first injured the ankle December 22 against Oakland, but was able to return to the game. He received a normal workload the following week, so it wasn't serious initially. But the injury got worse in the playoffs, forcing Mathews to stop practicing. He had just 26 yards against the Broncos, and did not play after halftime.
