Fantasy Outlook
A strange thing happened on the way to Brown solidifying himself as a former 1st round bust. He actually put together a solid season, subbing in for an ineffective Trent Richardson and rushing for 537 yards and six touchdowns while averaging 5.3 yards per carry in his final season as an Indianapolis Colt. Brown also chipped in as a pass receiver with 27 receptions for 214 yards and a pair of scores. Of course, after the free agent market for his services proved to be lukewarm, Brown chose to sign on in San Diego where he figures to spend the year as an insurance policy in case injuries strike Ryan Mathews or Danny Woodhead. That renders him as having little fantasy value in 2014 although he may be worth stashing on your dynasty roster since Mathews is scheduled for unrestricted free agency at season's end.
Chargers RB Woodhead likely out for year
Sep 22 6:17 am
San Diego Chargers running back Danny Woodhead was carted off with an ankle injury Sunday. Afterwards, Woodhead was diagnosed with a high ankle sprain and fractured fibula, likely requiring season-ending surgery. (UT San Diego)
Fantasy Impact: Donald Brown is in line for a heavy workload in the coming weeks with Ryan Mathews already on the shelf with a sprained MCL. In deep leagues, take a look at UDFA Branden Oliver as a bench flier. Woodhead left early and Oliver only had three carries, but right now he is next man up after Brown.

Chargers RB Mathews has sprained MCL
Sep 15 6:33 am
San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews suffered an MCL sprain in their upset win over the Seattle Seahawks. (UT San Diego)
Fantasy Impact: It is unclear how much time Mathews will miss, but this does not appear to be a short-term injury. Donald Brown was signed in the offseason as insurance for Mathews, and should take over early down work, while Danny Woodhead continues his pass catching role with perhaps a few more touches.
