Danario Alexander out for season with torn ACL

Danario Alexander out for season with torn ACL

Aug 7, 2013

Danario Alexander flashed signs of brilliance last season and emerged as one of the top mid-season fantasy free agent acquisitions after catching 7 touchdowns in just 10 games with the Chargers.

His breakout performance in 2012 made Alexander a viable number two fantasy wide receiver in drafts this season and a favorite of many to be one of the top breakout WR’s of the draft.

The only question is could the oft-injured native of Marlin, Texas stay healthy for an entire season, something he has been unable to do in his three-year NFL career.

After a disappointing ACL tear at camp on Tuesday, the answer to that question is a resounding no.

Amazingly, it is the fourth time Alexander has torn the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee, as he suffered the same injury three times while at the University of Missouri.

It is assumed that Vincent Brown will now start opposite of Malcom Floyd at wide receiver for the Chargers.

The loss of Alexander reduces the value of Phillip Rivers who was already a borderline viable fantasy quarterback in our 2013 quarterback rankings.
