Branden Oliver nothing special

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/21/14) For a two-week stretch in his first stint replacing Ryan Mathews earlier this year, Chargers running back Branden Oliver looked like a legitimate standout in Fantasy, rushing for 100 yards in back-to-back games with some receiving yards to boot. But he faded in the weeks thereafter, making it easy for the Chargers to go back to Mathews when he returned from a shoulder injury in Week 11.

Unfortunately, in the two weeks since Mathews went down with what may be a season-ending ankle injury, Oliver hasn't regained his form from those two 100-yard games, averaging 39.5 rushing yards and 36.0 receiving yards.

One difference is that Donald Brown, who was second on the depth chart coming into the year, is healthy now and cutting into Oliver's production. The two actually had a combined 20 carries Week 16 at San Francisco, but Brown got seven of them. As much the issue, though, is that the Chargers aren't playing from ahead as often as they were earlier in the season. The turn actually began in Week 7, which was also when Oliver's production slipped.

Obviously, if you're still in the hunt for a championship in your league but have major issues at running back, you won't find too many players who are their team's primary ball carrier on waivers this time of year. But Oliver shouldn't be a priority for any Fantasy owner right now, whether or not Mathews returns for Week 17.

Branden Oliver heads Chargers rushing attack in Week 16 win

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/21/14) Chargers running back Branden Oliver lead the running-back committee Saturday, racking up 53 yards on 13 carries and adding three receptions for 28 yards.

Oliver showed plenty of burst while continually churning out positive plays, leading the running-back carousel with 16 of the Chargers backs' 29 touches. Ronnie Brown managed to pick up 33 yards on seven carries while adding a nine-yard reception, and Donald Brown delivered 12 yards on four carries as well as a four-yard reception.

If starter Ryan Mathews cannot play in Week 17, Oliver figures to once again lead a multifaceted rushing attack. The Chargers will square off with the Chiefs next Sunday.

Chargers RB Ryan Mathews could miss last two games

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/18/14) Chargers running back Ryan Mathews (ankle) missed his second straight practice Thursday ahead of Saturday's visit to San Francisco. According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, it's unclear if Mathews will return during the regular season.

Running backs Branden Oliver and Donald Brown will carry the load against the 49ers, assuming Mathews sits out. Mathews has played in just six games this year.

Chargers running back Branden Oliver held to 26 rushing yards

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/14/14) Chargers running back Branden Oliver had one of his least productive games of the season in a 22-10 loss to the Broncos Sunday.

Oliver was held to 26 rushing yards on 12 attempts, but caught all four of his receiving targets for 44 yards. Oliver failed to reach the end zone and has not scored since Oct. 12.

The Chargers next play Saturday at Kansas City.

Report: Chargers' Ryan Mathews highly doubtful to play Week 15

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/14/14) Chargers running back Ryan Mathews, who is listed as questionable for Week 15 vs. Denver due to an ankle injury, is highly doubtful to play Sunday, a source told NFL.com National Insider Ian Rapoport. Mathews was not able to do much in practice during the week.

Mathews has been limited to six games this season due to injury. Donald Brown and Branden Oliver would likely pick up most of the slack in the running game, if Mathews is sidelined.
