Vincent Brown was diagnosed with a broken left ankle in Saturday's preseason game.
According to beat writer Kevin Acee, Brown is expected to miss "at least" eight weeks, and is out for the remainder of the preseason. A best case-scenario would have him returning after the first five games. This all but locks in Robert Meachem as the starter opposite Malcolm Floyd, with Eddie Royal (groin) primarily in the slot. Even when he returns, Brown could struggle to regain his pre-injury form. We're not holding out hope for fantasy value.

I'm liking Meachum even more as a high WR3 and mid-low WR2. He's a down field threat that should fit in well with Turner's vertical attack imo.

Brown was vaulting up draft boards prior to this.

Just dropped him in 3 leagues I owned him. Damn shame, I really think he had a great shot at taking the #1 spot this year from Meachem/Floyd

In a dyno I traded him away in the pre-season, and in Shark leagues, I hadn't yet gotten into the rounds where I'd be willing to draft him. But just speaking as a fan, this is a real shame - I thought this would be a breakout year for Brown and that he had the best chance to take over as WR1 in SD. Hopefully he'll be okay for the second half of the season.

Where does it leave SD? I'm not a big believer in Meachem or Floyd. For Rivers' sake, I hope that Gates can stay on the field this season and that Mathews comes back and stays back.

#-o I've been targeting him everywhere I can, even reaching for him in some drafts. I still wouldn't draft Meachem at his current ADP.

Wow, just drafted Meachem in the 9th in Tiger 12. Hadn't heard this till now. Maybe it wasn't such a bad pick after all...

this is why your drafts shouldn't start until preseason week 3 is over.
