Curtis Brinkley Starting For Chargers

Chargers RB Curtis Brinkley is starting Sunday's game in favor of Ronnie Brown.Fantasy Spin:Brown is on his last legs. Brinkley handled more carries than the veteran in Week 1 but neither did much against the Raiders. Oakland is getting shredded by Reggie Bush Sunday so it's more likely Brown and Brinkley just aren't very good. Only start Brinkley if you're desperate.

Chargers’ Curtis Brinkley is a survivor in more ways than one

  San Diego Chargers running back Curtis Brinkley couldn't have been happy with his team's heartbreaking 23-20 overtime loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday night, but in the grand scheme of things, you'd forgive him if he's got his priorities in perspective past just one loss — he should be happy just to be on the field. Brinkley's 10-carry, 43-yard evening...
