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.

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.

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.

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...
