WR Vincent Brown - San Diego Chargers
|5-11, 184||Born: 1-25-1989||College: San Diego State||Drafted: Round 3|
Quick fantasy outlook: Vincent Brown is a promising receiver whose NFL career has yet to really get going. As a rookie in 2011, his playing time was rather limited. Heading into 2012, however, he looked like the Chargers best receiver. He made big plays throughout training camp and the preseason, consistently outperforming the team's higher-profile free agent acquisitions that year, Robert Meachem and Eddie Royal. But a gruesome ankle injury suffered late in the preseason (on a spectacular touchdown catch) caused him to miss the entire regular season. Before his injury, Brown showed the ability (during the preseason) to run good routes and consistently make tough grabs. Brown doesn't have true breakaway speed, but he is a promising possession-type receiver who could be an effective redzone threat. He must show that he is fully recovered from the ankle injury, however, and then fantasy owners must pay close attention to the Chargers' depth chart at wide receiver throughout this year's training camp and the preseason. With a new coaching staff, the starting spots are up for grabs, and Brown will be competing with Danario Alexander, Malcom Floyd, and Keenan Allen. Most believe that Alexander will occupy one starting spot as long as he's healthy, and that Brown and Floyd are the primary contenders for the number two spot.
