2013 Outlook: Sleeper (undervalued)Last updated on Aug-23-2013 by Jeb Gorham
Update (8/7): Already an intriguing fantasy option, Brown is now thrust into the spotlight following Danario Alexander's season-ending knee injury. Of course, the former third round pick's own issues with bumps and bruises has kept him off the field previously (including all of last season). On the very day of Alexander's injury, the 5-foot-11 target returned to practice after missing multiple sessions with a hamstring injury. Considering all the other uncertain options, Brown's route-running prowess makes him the best hope and potential WR3 - if he can stay healthy.
Brown is a super sleeper. We have not seen him on the field in a while given his severely broken ankle that kept him sidelined all of 2012. San Diego's training staff is keeping Brown's return to action slow paced, but it appears he will be ready for action as camp comes. Reports state that Brown will compete for wideout two-three positions with Meachem, Floyd and Keenan Allen. I like Brown's speed and think he has a shot at the number three wideout position. He could be productive fantasy-wise if provided the right opportunities.
Update 8/23/13 - Brown remains a sleeper, but he and Keenan Allen are going to see much of the action in the SD passing game. The value here depends on whether or not the SD offensive line can protect Philip Rivers and allow him time to effective pass the ball.

|10.08||DLF.com - TheFFGhost - Brown is a bit of risky pick here but his upside is undeniable. If he performs even halfway up to his expectations then grabbing him in the 10th could help my team a lot.|

2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #1

|9.09||FFMagicMan - Vincent Brown was nothing short of spectacular in his preseason games last year. A broken ankle derailed his season, but he is healthy now and a new coaching regime will have that Chargers' offense hitting on cylinders they haven't dusted off in several years. I expect him to be a household name by the time this season is complete.|
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #3
July 9th, 2013
|10.05||DraftSharks - A broken ankle wiped out Brown's 2nd season. But the whole team gets a restart under the new staff of HC Mike McCoy. Brown has drawn praise and climbed the depth chart this offseason. The next Danario Alexander injury might be the only thing standing between Brown and San Diego's #1 WR spot in 2013.|
