Branden Oliver now looking like less of a sure thing

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/24/14) After taking the league by storm with consecutive 100-yard rushing games, Chargers running back Branden Oliver has come back to earth over the last two weeks.

Oliver rushed for just 36 yards on 13 carries in Week 8 against the Broncos, his second straight game with six or fewer Fantasy points. Though it looked like he might take the starting job and run with it, Oliver's struggles over the last two games should leave the door open for Ryan Mathews to take on a solid role when he comes back from his knee injury -- whenever that might be.

As long as Mathews remains out, Oliver will be the go-to back in San Diego, but this is something to keep an eye on. He could remain useful in the Danny Woodhead role, however, even when Mathews is back, so don't expect Oliver to lose all his value. But he has a tough matchup on the way in Week with a Dolphins defense that is allowing just 3.70 yards per carry to running backs on the way.  

Chargers RB Branden Oliver limited Thursday night

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/23/14) Chargers running back Branden Oliver was limited Thursday night against the Broncos.

Oliver carried the ball 13 times, but produced just 36 rushing yards. He averaged just 2.8 yards per attempt. Oliver did manage to make an impact in the passing game, hauling in seven passes, but gained just 27 yards. The Chargers had trouble running early, and had to abandon the run after falling behind. 

Oliver will look for more Week 9 against the Dolphins. 

Branden Oliver running into a tough matchup

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/22/14) Chargers running back Branden Oliver will once again be the go-to guy in Week 8 against the Broncos Thursday, so what should Fantasy owners expect of him?

After consecutive double-digit Fantasy games, Oliver slowed up a big in Week 7, racking up just 7 points in a standard scoring format. Now he runs into a Broncos defense that is starting to live up to expectations. In consecutive games against the Jets and 49ers, the Broncos have allowed just 3 Fantasy points in each outing, and have not allowed a running back to find the end zone since Week 5.

Opposing backs are averaging just 2.90 yards per carry against the Broncos this season, so Oliver could be in for a tough game. Still, he has a workload few backs can compete with, so continue consider Oliver a solid start.  

Ryan Mathews, Donald Brown still sidelined Tuesday

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/21/14) Chargers running backs Ryan Mathews (knee) and Donald Brown (concussion) did not practice Tuesday, reports the San Diego Union-Tribune. Neither is expected to play Thursday at Denver, leaving Branden Oliver as the lead back.

Chargers RB Branden Oliver totals 78 yards in Week 7 loss

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/19/14) Chargers running back Branden Oliver rushed for 67 yards on 15 carries and added 11 yards on two receptions in his team's 23-20 loss to the Chiefs in Week 7.

Oliver was effective while averaging 4.5 yards per carry, but the Chargers put the ball in the hands of Philip Rivers while also losing the time-of-possession battle in a big way, holding on to possession for only 21 minutes. Oliver is up to 316 rushing yards and 135 receiving yards to go with three touchdowns. The Chargers will head to Denver for a Thursday night battle in Week 8.
