2014 Outlook: Do Not DraftLast updated on Aug-15-2014 by Jeb Gorham
Brown will be the Chargers' No. 4 receiver. Keenan Allen and Malcom Floyd are the starters. Eddie Royal will occupy the slot. This leaves little room for Brown, especially if the Chargers plan on getting Ladarius Green on the field in the occasional two-TE set. Brown had some opportunities last season to step up and shine due to Floyd's injury; however, Brown did not impress. His 41/472/1 stat-line did not make the cut and he has been sliding down the depth chart since his arrival in the league. As he proved last season, even if injuries occur around him and everybody else is playing really well, Brown is unable to contribute significant stats for fantasy owners.
Update 8/15/14 - Vincent Brown has been troubled by a calf injury and has missed most of camp. At this stage he may not even make the 53 man roster. If so, he will be surpassed by Dontrelle Inman, Seyi Ajirotutu and Tevin Reese as the back-up wide outs.
Wide receiver Vincent Brown was a fantasy sleeper heading into the 2012 season. Unfortunately, he's still sleeping, and now he'll have to find a new city in which to get his wake-up call. The Chargers cut the 25-year-old Brown on Saturday.
After posting a few solid games as a rookie in 2011, Brown's 2012 season was wiped before it even began due to a broken ankle during the preseason. He put up pedestrian numbers in 2013 and couldn't really make a dent in the Chargers' rather thin receiving corps. His last month with San Diego was spent on the sidelines as he nursed a calf injury. He hasn't practiced since July 25.
It was telling that Brown couldn't stand out last season despite the fact that quarterback Philip Rivers experienced a renaissance without a clear No. 2 WR. Brown is expected to be healthy soon and should play this season; he just won't play for San Diego. It's still a little early, but that broken ankle may end up being the story of Brown's career.
