Shaun Draughn rushed 12 times for 37 yards and caught 8-of-11 targets for 40 yards in the 49ers' Week 11 loss to the Seahawks.
He handled all 20 touches out of the 49ers' backfield. Draughn didn't have much success as a runner, but the 11 targets were a team-high and actually provided a decent output for PPR owners who were forced to stream him. Draughn will have some RB2 appeal for however long Carlos Hyde (foot) is out. Nov 22 - 7:56 PM

The 49ers plan to start Shaun Draughn at running back in Week 11 at Seattle.

It's obviously a brutal matchup, but Draughn will get work, and there are plenty of fantasy owners who currently just need their running backs to get some points in games. Before the 49ers' Week 10 bye, Draughn piled up 20 touches and nearly 100 total yards against the Falcons, catching four passes. He's on the bottom-rung RB2 fringe in a much more difficult Week 11 draw.

49ers RB Shaun Draughn rushed for 58 yards on 16 carries and caught 4-of-5 targets for 38 yards in Sunday's Week 9 upset of Atlanta.

Signed off the street just six days ago, Draughn functioned as the 49ers' primary back ahead of Pierre Thomas and Kendall Gaskins, with Carlos Hyde (foot) on the shelf. Draughn broke an early 30-yard run and was more effective than anyone could have guessed on such a short timeframe with the 49ers' organization. As Hyde is tentatively due back after the 49ers' Week 10 bye, Draughn carries appeal only in the deepest of PPR leagues.
Nov 8 - 7:26 PM

49ers signed RB Shaun Draughn, formerly of the Browns.

Draughn turns 29 next month. He spent the first six weeks on the Browns' roster, carrying the ball two times for 10 yards, but got the boot when Robert Turbin was healthy. Draughn has carried the ball 75 times for 264 yards (3.5 YPC) and two TDs in his five-year career spent with five different teams. Draughn could become fantasy-relevant purely based on opportunity with all three of Carlos Hyde (foot), Reggie Bush (torn ACL), and Mike Davis (hand) hurt.
Nov 2 - 6:29 PM

Browns waived RB Shaun Draughn.

With Robert Turbin finally healthy, Draughn was no longer needed. The journeyman veteran had just two attempts through five games this season. Draughn last touched the ball more than 10 times in 2012.
Oct 20 - 2:20 PM

Browns signed RB Shaun Draughn off their practice squad.

The promotion had been expected all week. With Duke Johnson good to go for Week 1, Draughn will serve as the No. 3 back against the Jets.
Sep 12 - 12:15 PM

Browns RB Shaun Draughn is expected to be promoted off the practice squad this week.

With Duke Johnson still in the concussion protocol, the Browns need a backup for starter Isaiah Crowell. Draughn should fill that role.
Sep 8 - 12:13 PM

Browns signed RB Shaun Draughn to the practice squad.

The NFL recently-implemented practice squad rules give 28-year-old Draughn the ability to stick in the league. With the trade of Terrance West, Draughn will likely get the promotion to the active roster ahead of Sunday's opener.
Sep 7 - 8:21 PM

Browns waived RB Shaun Draughn, OL Karim Barton, DB Landon Feichter, RB Tim Flanders, DB Kendall James, WR Darrius Jennings, OL Erle Ladson, DL Jacobbi McDaniel, OL Andrew McDonald, OL Darrian Miller, DB Robert Nelson Jr., OL Vinston Painter, LB Hayes Pullard III, DB Joe Rankin, LB Mike Reilly and DB De’Ante Saunders.

Cleveland has one of the league's shakiest running back corps, but Draughn couldn't make the cut, Going on 28, Draughn is near the end of his NFL shelf life.
Sep 5 - 4:27 PM

Browns re-signed exclusive rights free agent RB Shaun Draughn to a one-year contract.

27-year-old Draughn is a situational passing-down back whose limited running skills haven't translated to much ball carrying in the pros. He'll compete for a roster spot behind Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West in Cleveland.
Mar 6 - 1:41 PM

Browns signed RB Shaun Draughn to a one-year contract.

Draughn, 27 next week, played 11 snaps for the Chargers in Week 5, rushing 10 times for 19 yards. He was cut last month. He'll bring up the rear of the Browns' depth chart behind Isaiah Crowell, Glenn Winston, and Terrance West.

Chargers waived RB Shaun Draughn.

Shaun Draughn rushed 10 times for 19 yards in Sunday's Week 5 blowout of the Jets.

Draughn was forced into action after starter Donald Brown suffered a concussion. He played a firm second fiddle to wildly impressive UDFA Branden Oliver, who rolled to 114 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries. Draughn may get some change-of-pace work next week if Brown can't get cleared, but he'd be a desperation add only.
Sun, Oct 5, 2014 07:40:00 PM

Chargers signed RB Shaun Draughn, ILB Kevin Reddick and OLB Cordarro Law.

Law was promoted from the practice squad. Waived by the Bears last week, Draughn will slide in as the Chargers' No. 3 running back as they wait for Ryan Mathews (knee) to get healthy. Despite the Chargers' unsettled running back situation, Draughn is well off the radar in 12-14 team leagues.
Tue, Sep 23, 2014 06:03:00 PM

Chargers worked out free agent RBs RB Shaun Draughn and D.J. Adams.

The Bolts need a back after sending Danny Woodhead (ankle) to injured reserve. The player they probably wanted to sign, Marion Grice, was plucked off their practice squad by the Cardinals on Monday. The Chargers took Grice with the 201st pick of May's draft.
