The Colts have signed RB Branden Oliver. It was a rough preseason opener for Indy's backfield, which saw Marlon Mack exit with a hamstring injury and Nyheim Hines struggle. Oliver is still a long shot for 2018 fantasy value but is at least worth keeping an eye on. He caught 36 balls as a rookie back in 2014 before injuries got in the way the past 3 years.

Chargers RB Branden Oliver (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game against the Giants. That leaves Austin Ekeler as the #2 RB -- but bet on RB Melvin Gordon returning to a workhorse role this weekend.

Chargers RB Branden Oliver has been on the field for OTAs this week -- about 9 months after tearing his Achilles in a preseason game. "I feel great right now," he said. "I’m taking nothing for granted. I’m coming out and taking it one day at a time." QB Philip Rivers has liked what he's seen. "He looks good. He looks explosive. I know it’s early, but I think he really is a great complement to Melvin (Gordon)," Rivers said. Gordon is locked in as the Chargers' feature back. But Oliver has a good shot to capture the #2 spot on the depth chart. His competition is underwhelming: Kenneth Farrow, Andre Williams and Kenjon Barner.

Chargers RB Branden Oliver suffered a torn Achilles in Sunday's preseason game. He's done for the season. Oliver was 3rd on San Diego's RB depth chart and off the fantasy radar. His absence might mean a few more touches for RBs Melvin Gordon and Danny Woodhead, but it's not enough to move either guy up the RB rankings.

Chargers RB Branden Olive has turf toe, according to insider Michael Gehlken.  He was in a boot and on crutches on Monday.  "We'll see about this one," Oliver said when asked if he'll be ready for next week's game against the Bears.  Oliver seems doubtful for that one.  Donald Brown will serve as San Diego's #3 RB if Oliver can't go.
