Chargers list Donald Brown as questionable to return Sunday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) After leaving Sunday’s game against the Broncos with an elbow injury, Chargers linebacker Donald Brown is questionable to return, the team announced.

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


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) 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.


Malcom Floyd leads quiet Chargers receiving night vs. Patriots


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2014) Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd caught three of his six targets for a team-high 54 yards and one touchdown in his team's 23-14 loss to the Patriots in Week 14.

Floyd made an excellent play on a slightly overthrown ball after beating his man early in the second quarter, hauling in a 15-yard touchdown to put the Chargers ahead for the first time Sunday. They would maintain that lead until the fourth quarter, where they surrendered 10 points and took the loss.

Running back Donald Brown and tight end Antonio Gates shared the team lead in receptions, with both players hauling in five passes. Brown gained 49 yards on six targets while Gates managed just 34 yards on eight targets. Eddie Royal caught just two of his five targets for 30 yards, while nominal No. 1 receiver Keenan Allen was held to three yards on two receptions.

The Chargers will certainly be looking for a better effort by the passing game in the team's Week 15 matchup with the Broncos.


Chargers get minor contributions from role players Week 13


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) The Chargers received minor contributions from several role players during Sunday's win over the Ravens in Week 13.

Branden Oliver backed up Ryan Mathews on the day but only registered one carry for a gain of 7 yards. Donald Brown caught his only target for a gain of 6 yards. Meanwhile, Ladarius Green caught both of his targets for only 1 yard.


Chargers get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) The Chargers got a slew of offensive contributions in their 27-24 win over the Rams on Sunday. Among them, running back Branden Oliver carried six times for 17 yards and caught all four of his targets for 23 yards. Running back Donald Brown caught two passes for 20 yards and had a 7-yard rush.

Tight end Antonio Gates caught both his targets for 14 yards, while tight end Ladarius Green hauled in two of three targets for 34 yards. Wideout Malcom Floyd secured four of five targets for 30 yards.

Wideout Seyi Ajirotutu made an 8-yard grab. They'll all visit the Ravens in Week 13.


Branden Oliver, Donald Brown fail to deliver for Chargers Week 9


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Chargers running back Donald Brown did not get the start but led the team in rushing yards in a disappointing performance on the ground against Miami in Week 9.

Branden Oliver got the start and received the bulk of the load throughout the majority of the game. He rushed for 19 yards on 13 carries, averaging only 1.5 yards per attempt. He caught one of his two targets for 7 yards.

Brown ripped a 16-yard run in the fourth quarter for the longest gain of the day on the ground for San Diego. He finished with four carries for 23 yards. Three of his four carries came in the fourth quarter. He caught one of two targets for 6 yards in a 37-0 defeat.

The Chargers will head into a bye week before facing the Raiders in Week 11.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Concussion keeping Chargers RB Donald Brown sidelined


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) Chargers running back Donald Brown appears unlikely to play Sunday in Oakland after missing practice again Thursday. He has yet to complete concussion protocol, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

FFT Blog: Looking at the most-dropped list


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2014) At the Fantasy Football Today blog, we took a look at the most-dropped players in CBSSports.com leagues.

The five most-dropped players are Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins and tight end Niles Paul, Chargers running back Donald Brown, Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams and Buccaneers running back Bobby Rainey

You probably won't regret dropping Williams or Paul given their injuries, and Cousins' next few matchups will probably bring out more bad habits. However, if Brown is available in your league (as he is in 19 percent of leagues), you might want to snatch him. He has a tough matchup in Week 5, but we think he can run all over the Raiders in Week 6. 


Donald Brown doesn't look like the answer


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/29/2014) Though he picked up only 62 yards on an absurd 31 carries Week 3 at Buffalo, some Fantasy owners held out hope that Chargers running back Donald Brown could deliver more as Ryan Mathews' replacement Week 4 vs. Jacksonville. After all, he was going against the league's 32nd-ranked run defense.

He couldn't. On a per-carry basis, the performance was much like the one he had at Buffalo, only the Chargers didn't let it go on for 31 carries this time, sprinkling in rookie Branden Oliver for much of their last few possessions.

Quarterback Philip Rivers carried the offense in this one, completing 29 of 39 passes for 377 yards and three touchdowns, and judging by Brown's performance through two starts, that figures to be the case until Mathews returns.

Especially now that Oliver has gotten involved, Brown is no more than a desperation option in Fantasy.


Chargers get nothing in the run game Week 4


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) The Chargers running backs did nothing Week 4 against the Jaguars.

Branden Oliver actually led the way in yardage, picking up 23 yards on nine carries. Donald Brown received 10 carries, but only gained 19 yards. Oliver had the longest run of the game, coming in at 7 yards. Both players played a bigger role in the passing game. Brown hauled in four passes for 25 yards. Oliver also caught four balls, picking up 33 yards. 

Both players will look for more Week 5 against the Jets. 


Taking a look at the top running backs on the waiver-wire


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/23/2014) With a ton of running backs on bye or dealing with injuries, the field is thin for Week 4. And, the potential replacements available on the waiver-wire aren't exactly standouts, with Jamey Eisenberg tabbing Ravens back Lorenzo Taliaferro and Donald Brown of the Chargers as the top pickups for the week.
