Donald Brown was taken out in the second quarter after taking a high hit by Quinton Coples.

Fantasy Impact: Donald Brown may have lost all of his fantasy value after this game. The concussion may force the Chargers to go with the hot hand until Mathews is ready to return.

RB Ronald Brown was stuck in neutral most of the day this past Sunday against Jacksonville. Brown had 10 carries for 19 yards for a less than stellar 1.9 yard per carry average.

Fantasy Impact: San Diego had to rely solely on QB Philip Rivers arm and the rushing attack was basically non-existent. With both Danny Woodhead and Ryan Mathews not suited up, Brown did not make most of his situation. Back up RB Brandon Oliver did not fare much better, but could steal carries next week when the Jets come to town.

RB Donald Brown will see the bulk of the carries this Sunday when the Chargers host the winless Jacksonville Jaguars. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: The offense will have to find a way to get the running game going. Brown had 31 carries for 62 yards last week after Danny Woodhead went down with a season-ending injury. This week's match-up will provide a litmus test on how Brown will handle the responsibilities of the lead-back after a full week of practice as the go-to guy.

Donald Brown had 5 of his 10 touches after Ryan Mathews went down with a knee injury. Early reports suggest that Mathews has a sprained MCL and could miss at least 4 weeks. (Source: UT San Diego)

Fantasy Impact: Going forward Brown and Woodhead should split the touches. Mathews owners should be picking up Brown especially with Woodhead already being owned in most leagues.

Newly acquired running back Donald Brown spoke to the media Tuesday and said that "The hot hand will play" when asked about playing time. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: If true it looks like San Diego will be a running back by committee situation. This will prove particularly frustrating for fantasy owners as there will be a lot of uncertainty as to who will get enough touches to be relevant. It may be likely that everything will be split evenly between the three, Brown, Ryan Mathews and Danny Woodhead, leaving none of the running backs particularly useful.

The week has finally arrived. Someone will wake up Tuesday with a million dollars in their account! We had some nice hits last week at all positions (Luck, Forte, Nelson, Kelce to name a few) and hopefully you were able to pair them all together. Last week was a very high scoring and all of the higher owned players went off (outside of Donald Brown) so trying to be contrarian didn’t pay o...

Hopefully you took my advice last week at the Quarterback position as Rodgers produced an elite 300 yard, 4 TD game while Rivers and Brees both turned in very solid performances as well. I will be going back to the well with two of those guys this week. At the running back position value play, Donald Brown absolutely embarrassed himself in one of the easiest possible match-ups.

What was the main reason that fantasy players didn’t draft San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Matthews last year? Oh yeah, because he was always hurt. Last season Matthews put up a highly successful campaign, without injury. This immediately made fantasy-ites forget about that. Then Sunday, came and we were all reminded of why Matthews was such a risky pick. Matthews suffered a sprained MC...
