Chargers re-sign Curtis Brinkley: Fantasy implications

Stephen Dunn

San Diego brought back a familiar face to the backfield. We break down the fantasy implications.

The San Diego Chargers re-signed Curtis Brinkley on Wednesday after placing safety Darrell Stuckey and defensive end Vaughn Martin on injured reserve. Brinkley has appeared in in seven games for the Chargers this season and carried the ball a career-high 18 times in Week 2 for 43 yards.

He has not carried the ball at all since Week 3 and will likely spend most of his time on special teams for the remainder of the year.

Fantasy Take: Not much to see here even though Brinkley had hints of "maybe he will do something more" at different times of the past two seasons. There is no danger to the amount of carries that Ryan Mathews will get even though he has struggled this season.
