Chargers' Donald Brown: Tallies 91 yards of total offense in Week 17 loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Brown gained 81 yards on 21 carries and secured two of three targets for 10 yards in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Broncos.

After a run-in with a suffocating Raiders run defense in Week 16, the seven-year veteran bounced back with a productive effort and led the Chargers in rushing for the second time in the last three games. Brown scuffled to a 1.2 yards per carry average versus Oakland, but found enough running room Sunday to average almost four yards per tote and break off a game-long 20-yard run. Now a free agent, it remains to be seen if San Diego will bring back Brown as veteran insurance in 2016. First-round rookie Melvin Gordon looked like a bust before going on injured reserve late in the season, and Danny Woodhead still projects best as a dynamic pass-catching back that only carries the ball 8-10 times per game. Meanwhile, Brown offers a skill set that combines many of the traits of a conventional feature back and Woodhead's receiving ability, which may help carve out a place for him in the San Diego backfield heading into the Chargers' 2016 training camp.

Chargers' Donald Brown: Finds the end zone Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Donald Brown rushed 14 times for 17 yards and a score while catching three of his four targets for 33 yards in Thursday's 23-20 overtime loss to the Raiders.

As expected, Brown was very involved Thursday after Melvin Gordon was placed on IR earlier in the week, but his 1.2 yards per carry left a lot to be desired. He could find the end zone again in the season finale against Denver, but his output next week figures to be very touchdown dependent, as he is unlikely to have much success on a per play basis. Danny Woodhead led the team in total yards, with 55 coming on 11 rushes and 53 via eight catches.

Chargers' Donald Brown: Added work on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Donald Brown is on track to see an expanded workload down the stretch, with Melvin Gordon headed to IR.

Brown gained 90 yards on 12 carries and caught two passes for 14 yards in Sunday's 30-14 win over the Dolphins, but with Gordon (who had 15 carries before being injured in the contest) now out, Brown looks poised to see his share of early-down work down the stretch in tandem with change-of-pace/pass-catching back, Danny Woodhead.

Chargers' Donald Brown: Totals 104 yards of offense in Week 15 victory
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Brown gained 90 yards on 12 carries and secured two of three targets for 14 yards in Sunday's 30-14 victory over the Dolphins.

Brown emerged from the mothballs he's apparently been preserved in all season to explode on an unsuspecting Dolphins squad. While the Miami defense certainly provided a tantalizing matchup for the Chargers ground game, the general consensus was that the game would potentially serve as rookie Melvin Gordon's long-awaited NFL coming-out party. Instead, it was the seven-year veteran who maximized the opportunity after Gordon exited with a second-quarter knee injury, amassing his best rushing yardage total in just over four years. Brown had not reached the 90-yard mark on the ground since decimating the Titans for 161 yards in Week 15 of the 2011 campaign, and got there Sunday largely on the strength of a dynamic 53-yard scamper to the Dolphins' five-yard line midway through the fourth quarter. With the extent of Gordon's injury still unknown, it remains to be seen what level of usage Brown will receive over the season's final two games.

Chargers' Donald Brown: Season-high 57 yards from scrimmage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Donald Brown rushed for 26 yards on seven carries and caught his lone target for 31 yards in Sunday's 17-3 loss to the Broncos.

Brown could start to see a little more work, if rookie Melvin Gordon continues to struggle with ball security (he fumbled twice Sunday, losing one). Thus, Brown could make for a decent speculative play in deeper formats, but just keep in mind that he's unlikely to make much of an impact, given all of San Diego's offensive line issues.
