McCoy: Ryan Mathews has a chance to play in Week 13
Wednesday, November 27, 2013, 12:41pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Per Chargers HC Mike McCoy, RB Ryan Mathews (hamstring) has a chance to play in Week 13.

Fantasy Impact:

We still consider him doubtful since he re-injured his hamstring, but we'll monitor his practice reps this week ahead of Sunday's game. The Chargers play in the late round of games. Danny Woodhead would be a great start if Mathews is sidelined, while Ronnie Brown would likely see an expanded backup role.

Chargers wide receiver Eddie Royal (chest) was evaluated in the fourth quarter. His absence gave Seyi Ajirotutu the opportunity to make the game-winning catch in the final minute.

Ryan Mathews aggravates hammy

Union-Tribune San Diego - [Full Article]

Chargers running back Ryan Mathews aggravated a right hamstring injury, forcing his third-quarter exit. He had 14 carries for 53 yards, including a 1-yard touchdown. It's his second goal-line score in three games.

No timetable was given for his absence or that of any Charger.

Fantasy Impact:

Ronnie Brown mostly picked up the slack with six carries and Danny Woodhead also had six, which has pretty much been the norm for him. Brown would probably see more work if Mathews misses time, but Woodhead's value would also increase and could end up with the bigger role.

Brady: Shane Vereen's role 'hugely important'
Thursday, November 21, 2013, 11:18am

Boston Globe - [Full Article]

After learning from Kevin Faulk and then Danny Woodhead, Patriots RB Shane Vereen has moved into the role of third-down back very nicely.

“Since the middle of last year, he has really emerged and developed into that role,” Tom Brady said. “I think the best part is he really understands the importance and magnitude of that role and takes a lot of pride in it. It’s a hugely important part of our offense.”

Fantasy Impact:

Vereen had 21 touches back in Week 1, and he registered nine touches (including eight catches) in Week 11, playing 47% of the snaps. He projects to be a low-end RB2 the rest of the way, but has more value in PPR formats.
