Branden Oliver rumbles to 71 yards and a touchdown in loss to Chiefs

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/28/14) Chargers running back Branden Oliver had 14 carries for 71 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 19-7 loss to the Chiefs. 

Oliver got a goal line carry early in the second quarter and plunged into the end zone from one yard out. His longest carry of the day went for 18 yards.

Oliver finishes his rookie campaign with 582 yards and three touchdowns on 160 carries. His most significant playing time coming when starting running back Ryan Mathews was injured.

Chargers RB Ryan Mathews gets the red-light for Week 17

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/26/14) Chargers running back Ryan Mathews was officially ruled out for Sunday's regular season finale at Kansas City, per the team's official website.

Mathews' 2014 regular season campaign comes to an end after appearing in only six games, registering 330 yards and three touchdowns on 74 attempts on the ground. Branden Oliver, Donald Brown and Ronnie Brown will all shoulder the load in the running game.

According to Vegas Insiders, the Chargers are a 1-point underdog at Kansas City. San Diego can clinch a playoff spot with a win on Sunday.

Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (ankle) still sidelined

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/24/14) Chargers running back Ryan Mathews (ankle) was unable to practice again Wednesday as the team prepared for Sunday's game at Kansas City. Mathews has missed two straight games and nine overall this year.

If Mathews can't play, Branden Oliver, Donald Brown and Ronnie Brown would share backfield duties. The Chargers are 3-point underdogs.

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.
