The San Diego Chargers signed free-agent RB Donald Brown (Colts) to a three-year, $10 million deal Tuesday, March 11.
Huddle Up: Curious move -- especially from a fantasy perspective -- as S.D. now will have a 3-man RBBC with Brown and holdovers Ryan Mathews and Danny Woodhead.

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent RB Donald Brown likely would be behind RBs Vick Ballard and Trent Richardson on the depth chart if he re-signs with the team this offseason.
Huddle Up: With the Colts having other holes to plug, and Brown having designs on more playing time following his semi-resurgence in 2013, expect the 2 sides to head in different directions this offseason.

Indianapolis Colts RB Donald Brown (neck) practiced in full Thursday, Dec. 19.
Huddle Up: Those who were counting on a revival and a full Week 16 workload for Trent Richardson will need to recalculate as Brown put in a full practice for the second straight day -- meaning it looks like the backfield timeshare will resume.

Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said RB Donald Brown (stinger) is considered day-to-day because of the stinger he suffered Week 15.
Huddle Up: With Trent Richardson playing well for once, Brown might not get much work if any this week.

Indianapolis Colts RB Donald Brown (neck) left the Week 15 game with a stinger.
Huddle Up: Trent Richardson had a nice day, too. Keep an eye on Brown this week, but Richardson might have won himself more playing time.

The Indianapolis Colts do not plan to change their usage of their running backs, despite RB Trent Richardson's struggles and RB Donald Brown's success. 'We don't plan on changing our rotation with our backs,' offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton said. 'We've always been a running back by committee bunch, so we're going to continue to do that.'
Huddle Up: After a few years of underachieving, Brown has been playing like the first round pick he was, while Richardson has taken up the mantle of underachievement. Brown is the more trustworthy fantasy option, though he's living proof that it's too early to give up on a first-round pick like Richardson.

Indianapolis Colts RB Donald Brown rushed 14 times for 80 yards and a pair of TDs Thursday, Nov. 14 in a 30-27 win over the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Brown notched the first 2-TD game of his career, and most importantly, outgained Indy starting RB Trent Richardson (94-53 total yards) for the third time in four weeks. He's also scored 3 TDs to none for Richardson over that span and definitely should be owned in all leagues and started in most leagues with the way things are trending in the Indy backfield.

The Indianapolis Colts likely would release RB Delone Carter or RB Donald Brown during the preseason if they are able to sign free-agent RB Ahmad Bradshaw at some point.
Huddle Up: Vick Ballard appears save as a backfield committee member with Bradshaw or the starter if Indy can't agree to terms with the former Giant. That Carter and/or Brown are on the chopping block suggests they don't figure prominently in the Colts' plans going forward, regardless of whether or not they add Bradshaw.
