2014 Outlook: Deep-league OnlyLast updated on Jul-02-2014 by Jeb Gorham
Eddie Royal's eight TDs last season were an anomaly by consensus. He is the primary slot receiver in San Diego and will contribute sparingly. With defenses preoccupied with Keenan Allen and Malcom Floyd, Royal may once again produce the occasional shooting star performance. A healthy Floyd pushes Royal to the fringes of the game, limiting his targets and ultimately his production. Take a pass on Royal unless either Allen or Floyd are sidelined for a number of games.
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.
