Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy believes he can adjust his system to get the most out of either QB Trevor Siemian or QB Paxton Lynch. McCoy previously held the same position with the Broncos before becoming the San Diego Chargers' head coach, and he was known for his ability to create offenses tailored to his personnel.
Fantasy Tip: Whether it be running a read-option for Tim Tebow, a high-octane aerial assault for Peyton Manning, or a more conventional system for Philip Rivers, McCoy has shown to be among the best at adaptive coaching techniques. Now seeing that translate into on-field production for Lynch or Siemian is a different conversation, each quarterback has enough with which to work to provide a glimmer of hope. Think low-end QB2 for Siemian and a total flier No. 3 for Lynch, based on who wins the gig.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy's return means the team should have a similar offense next season that they did in 2015. There may also be a decent chance that Antonio Gates will re-sign this offseason since McCoy is staying. Philip Rivers likely will be a low-end No. 1 or solid No. 2 quarterback in most leagues. Most of the other skill players will be middle- to late-round options in a majority of leagues.
Sat, 02 Jan 2016 16:34:03 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Woodhead is worth a late-round flier on draft day, but he’ll have plenty of competition for touches in the San Diego backfield with Melvin Gordon, Branden Oliver and Donald Brown in the mix.
Mon, 29 Dec 2014 17:23:11 -0800

Tue, 30 Sep 2014 13:55:56 -0700
The San Diego Chargers ran just 20 times for 42 yards in Week 4 against the Jacksonville Jaguars for a measly 2.1 yards per carry. After four games this year, they are the second-worst running team in the league, and they host the New York Jets, the stingiest run defense, in Week 5. "The big thing is the running game. It's nowhere where it needs to be," head coach Mike McCoy said. "There's no excuses about it. We're not running it well enough. We're not blocking well enough. Whatever we're running isn't working. We've got to figure out as coaches and players how to get it done." RB Ryan Mathews (knee) is out indefinitely and RB Danny Woodhead (leg) is out for the season.
Fantasy Tip: Against a weak Jags defense, Brown was a popular play at FantasyScore last week, and he disappointed. Both Brown ($5,300; 10.6% of cap) and Branden Oliver ($3,000) aren't great options against the strong defensive front of the Jets.
Thu, 05 Dec 2013 07:52:02 -0800

Sun, 25 Aug 2013 23:54:12 -0700
Updating previous items, San Diego Chargers OT King Dunlap appears to have the inside edge over OT Max Starks for the starting left-tackle job, but Chargers coach Mike McCoy won't confirm.

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (knee) left practice to get treatment on a posterior cruciate ligament injury that Allen suffered in 2012, according to head coach Mike McCoy. McCoy said the team wants to stay on top of the issue.
Fantasy Tip: It sounds like the team is just being cautious with Allen, but it is still something to keep an eye on, especially after Allen got more reps with the starters earlier in the week.
Tue, 13 Aug 2013 11:25:41 -0700
San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (knee) left practice early Tuesday, Aug. 13, to get treatment on his knee, according to head coach Mike McCoy.

Whitehurst did throw two interceptions in the team's first preseason game while Sorensen threw the team's only touchdown.
Tue, 06 Aug 2013 14:13:09 -0700

Thu, 25 Jul 2013 19:26:54 -0700
San Diego Chargers head coach Mike McCoy said he would like to name the starting offensive line as quickly as possible to let the players build some chemistry. "The sooner you can declare who your starters are, the better, especially up front on the offensive line," McCoy said. "I strongly believe those guys need to play as much together as possible. ... We're going to move guys around and decide which combination is the five best. Ideally, you wish you could say that tomorrow morning: 'These are the five." I can't say that. We're going to let that play itself out."
Mon, 15 Jul 2013 18:44:54 -0700
San Diego Chargers head coach Mike McCoy wants RB Ryan Mathews to be the guy in 2013. McCoy said the depth the team added when they signed RBs Danny Woodhead and Ronnie Brown was not a reflection on Mathews. McCoy has one message for Mathews; "To have a great year and be the guy."
Tue, 02 Apr 2013 14:24:07 -0700
San Diego Chargers head coach Mike McCoy said that in a lot of cases, schemes can be a bit overrated, and suggested his team will build the offense around what their players do best. "We'll find out what the guys up front block best, what do the running backs run best, keep the tight ends involved in that running scheme, with the receivers blocking outside," he said. "We're not going to lock ourselves into saying, 'Hey, this is the only types of run we're going to have.' We're going to say, 'Hey, this is what we want to do,' and then we'll figure out, by the time the opener comes around, what our players do best.' "
