Ronnie Brown misses practice with hamstring injury: Fantasy implications

Jason Miller

Brown could be in danger of missing Week 15 after the team signed Curtis Brinkley as possible insurance. We break down the fantasy implications.

San Diego Chargers running back Ronnie Brown (hamstring) was held out of practice on Wednesday. Brown, now in his eighth season after time spent in Miami and Philadelphia, has missed one game this year and is the Chargers main running back on passing down.

Though he only has 169 yards rushing, Brown is second on the team in catches with 46 and has 360 yards receiving. San Diego takes on the Panthers in Week 15.

Fantasy Implications: Brown's fantasy relevance has been up-and-down during his career though he really slowed down after an injury in 2007. The Wildcat Formation helped him for a bit in Miami but otherwise he's a situation back and is now 31, possibly looking at his final season in the NFL.

If he misses Sunday's game, it could mean more passing downs for Ryan Mathews.
