Chargers RB situation is muddled
Wednesday, December 19, 2012, 3:37pm
“Well, we’ve got a chance to get Ronnie Brown back” he said. “[Jackie Battle] will get a chance to play. And [Curtis Brinkley] played some yesterday, though I don’t know that he would play on third down. And we’ll probably add Edwin Baker to the 53-man roster. I don’t know that he would be active, but we’d have to see where Ronnie Brown is.”
Reading the tea leaves, it appears that the RB depth chart goes Brown, Battle, Brinkley and Baker, but it's a crapshoot. Battle and Brown figure to split the work if Brown can play, but Brinkley did get more touches than Battle in Week 15.
Malcolm Floyd placed on IR

Charger WR Malcom Floyd's ankle is a sprain, not break, per league source. He was placed on IR.
Floyd will be fine for 2013, just wouldn't be able to recover and come back at this point in the season. He could have a decent partner in Danario Alexander on the other side, who emerged in the second half of the season. But, Floyd's production dropped a bit in that same span. The Chargers will likely see a lot of changes before taking the field next season.

Wide receiver Malcom Floyd suffered an ankle injury in Week 15.
There was no word on the severity. This week, the Chargers take on the Jets so even if Floyd plays, it's not a good matchup for your lineup. And, considering the clunker the offense put up last week, including no catches for Danario Alexander, no Charger is a safe play this time of the fantasy year.

Ryan Mathews is lost for the season so Brown could end up having some low end RB value this week against the Jets. Jackie Battle and Curtis Brinkley are sure to figure in as well. It's likely a situation to just stay away from as the Chargers offense has really struggled to run the ball.
