GM: Donald Brown to play 'supplemental' role
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

When asked about the signing of Donald BrownChargers general manager Tom Telesco told 1090 The Fan in San Diego on Friday that Brown will "help supplement" the ground game and referred to him as a great player who can do some different things than Ryan Mathews and Danny Woodhead. Telesco also made clear that Mathews is the team's top running back. 

Telesco said similar statements back in late March to the station. Brown was signed this spring to a three-year deal by Telesco, who helped scout Brown when he was with the Colts in 2009.

Donald Brown expected to get 5-10 touches per game
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

New Chargers running back Donald Brown will see five to 10 touches per game and serve as insurance in case Ryan Mathews gets hurt, according to a projection by the San Diego Union-Tribune. The paper noted Brown played 16 games for the first time last season.

McCoy hints at hot-hand approach for running backs
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Chargers coach Mike McCoy indicated Tuesday during the NFL owners meetings that he plans to use a hot-hand approach with his running backs in 2014 following the addition of Donald Brown joining Ryan Mathews and Danny Woodhead.

McCoy said his background after working for John Fox in Carolina is using multiple running backs.

"You get in there, you get on a little bit of a roll and you’re going to stay in there," McCoy said. "Donald is a perfect fit for our system, and that’s why we went after him and got him. He understands what we want to do offensively, not only in the passing game but in the running game and pass protection. ... We'll let Donald come in there and show us what he can do, and we'll try to take advantage of what he does best and go with the flow of the game."

Chargers' GM addresses crowded backfield
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Chargers general manager Tom Telesco said Wednesday on 1090AM that Ryan Mathews remains the "bell cow" despite the addition of Donald Brown as a free agent this offseason, reports ESPN.

"We know Ryan is our bell cow," Telesco said. "He's our No. 1 back. He had an excellent year last year. And we all know what Danny Woodhead can do in his role. We saw that for 16 games last year. And we think Donald can come in and add to that, too, and give us some different options. And a different style, too. The more weapons we can have for Philip Rivers, the better."

Making sense of the Chargers running back corps
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Donald Brown saved the Colts' run game last year and became an example of a running back playing to some career-high standards whilst in a contract year. The payoff could have led to a starting job, but instead Brown finds himself in another running back mess with the Chargers.

The Chargers seemingly did this to secure depth at the position and to safeguard against not having a back in case Ryan Mathews and/or Danny Woodhead leave via free agency next offseason. They also picked up a back who can do anything Mathews or Woodhead does -- Brown is a good runner and receiver.

The feeling here is that Mathews will remain the primary rusher for the Chargers. The team went 6-0 in games he had at least 20 carries (8-2 in games where he had at least 16 carries), a stat the coaches will have a hard time ignoring. Brown could keep Mathews from 24-plus carry games like he had toward the end of last season but we'll still see Mathews dominate. Brown should also reduce Woodhead's touches, particularly after he faded down the stretch last season. 

But even with this piecemeal workload from Mathews and Woodhead, it's tough to envision Brown getting enough work to be the same kind of helpful Fantasy rusher he was last year. I might take him with a mid-round pick.
