Report: Bolts RB Branden Oliver tears Achilles

Sunday, August 28, 2016, 2:56pm - [Full Article]

San Diego Chargers running back Branden Oliver was taken off the field on a cart late in the first half of Sunday's preseason tilt with the Minnesota Vikings.

The Chargers announced it was an Achilles injury for Oliver and he won't return to the game. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports, via a source informed, the running back tore his Achilles and will miss the season.

The Chargers lost tight end Jeff Cumberland to an Achilles injury last week. The devastating injury could have struck twice for the Bolts.

Fantasy Impact:

Oliver was looking like the backup to Melvin Gordon with Danny Woodhead the third down and pass-catching specialist. Dreamius Smith and Derek Watt are next up on the Chargers depth chart so it's not out of the question the team looks to add at this position for some insurance behind Gordon.

Former Jets tight end Jeff Cumberland is headed to San Diego on a one-year deal, the Chargers announced on Monday.

“Out with the old in with the new,” Cumberland wrote on social media. “Thanks for the 6 years the Jets organization gave me. Thanks to the Chargers organization for the opportunity to make a new home.”

In San Diego, he’ll be paired with eight-time Pro Bowler Antonio Gates.

Jets tight end Jeff Cumberland suffered a head injury in a loss to the Eagles.

Jets Beat: Expect a lot of Jeremy Kerley

Saturday, September 26, 2015, 11:26am - [Full Article]

With No. 3 wide receiver Chris Owusu (knee scope) out and Eric Decker (sprained knee) listed as questionable/game-time decision, I would expect Jeremy Kerley to see a bunch of action.

Remember, Decker has mostly worked in the slot this year. That is Kerley's area of specialty.

Devin Smith will do some things in this game, but it's his NFL debut. Hard to expect a lot out of him. And I don't think the Jets' coaches really are. In terms of the tight ends, the Jets lost a potentially big asset when Jace Amaro suffered that season-ending shoulder injury. Jeff Cumberland just isn't a great receiving threat.

Todd Bowles mentioned Thursday that he's asked Cumberland and blocking tight end Kellen Davis "to do a lot of blocking thus far." With Brandon Marshall and Decker catching passes, the Jets haven't needed Cumberland in the passing game. That could definitely change this week, but I don't think you'll see a lot of targets for him.

Fantasy Impact:

It looks like Kerley will benefit the most if Decker misses the game, and it looks like a good matchup on paper, but the Eagles defense hasn't been horrible the first couple weeks. Still, Kerley would be a bit of a risky play, but perhaps a better choice than Smith who looks like he'll make his debut but won't be a huge factor.
