Chargers | San Diego to use committee at RB

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 17:07:41 -0700

San Diego Chargers RBs Melvin Gordon, Danny Woodhead, Branden Oliver and Donald Brown will be part of a committee at running back this season, according to QB Philip Rivers. "As Coach has always said I'm not saying anything out of the blue it's a running back by committee crew," Rivers said. "It's going to be a team effort in that bunch. We're going to need all of them to carry the load in the run game and to catch the ball out of the backfield."

Fantasy Tip: Gordon probably will receive a majority of carries this season, but all four running backs could receive snaps during games. Gordon could be a middle-round option in most leagues, while Woodhead would be more valuable in point-per-reception leagues since he will be more involved in the passing game. Oliver and Brown probably will not have much value.

Chargers | Philip Rivers checks out

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 20:54:38 -0700

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers' (finger) X-rays on his finger were negative following a preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29, and he said he would have continued to play if it had been the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Rivers dodged a serious injury, and he should be viewed as a low-end QB1 or one of the top backups.

Chargers | Melvin Gordon's protection not big issue?

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 09:15:50 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon's struggles with pass protection have been overblown, according to running backs coach Ollie Wilson. "He's a big-bodied guy, and he's long, so he keeps people off of him," Wilson said. "I don't see what people say, that he won't pass protect. I've had no problem with it."

Fantasy Tip: It will only be a matter of time before we know if Wilson's words ring true or if Gordon needs more work with blocking on passing downs. If Gordon's pass protection isn't up to par, he may cede more playing time to Danny Woodheadand Branden Oliver. Nevertheless, Gordon should still be considered a RB2.

Chargers | Melvin Gordon at practice

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 12:07:28 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (ankle) participated in full gear during warmups Tuesday, Aug. 25. He did not play over the weekend against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon is expected to play this weekend in the Chargers' third preseason game. That contest could be telling as to how healthy Gordon is and what he's able to do. San Diego may want to ease him into the regular season, but that remains to be seen. He's still a RB2 candidate.

Chargers | SD counting on more from Ladarius Green

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 16:41:14 -0700

San Diego Chargers TE Ladarius Green will be asked to do more in 2015, especially with TE Antonio Gates suspended for the first four games of the season. Green impressed in the team's preseason game over the weekend, moving the chains on third down and even looking like Gates during one play in which he used his size against a backup safety. He also had a key block later in the game to spring RB Branden Oliver for an 11-yard gain. Green will receive more snaps this year if he can continue to improve on his blocking, something that was a weakness last season.

Fantasy Tip: Green was a big disappointment last year for fantasy owners that expected him to leapfrog Gates as Philip Rivers' go-to pass-catching tight end. Green has a real chance to bounce back and earn more playing time to kick off the season, but he still remains nothing more than a sleeper pick as your backup tight end in 2015.

Chargers | Melvin Gordon expected to play

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 16:31:29 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (ankle) is expected to play in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon was held out of the last preseason game because of his injury but should be fine moving forward. Gordon is expected to receive a majority of the carries this season and should be a middle-round option in most leagues.

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 16:59:16 -0700

Chargers | Melvin Gordon expected to sit Saturday

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 13:31:15 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (ankle) is not expected to participate in the second preseason game Saturday, Aug. 22, even though he participated in practice Thursday, Aug. 20, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The team likely is being cautious with Gordon since he is coming back from his injury. Gordon may share some snaps with the other running backs on the roster but should see a majority of the carries and could be a middle-round option in most leagues.

Chargers | Keenan Allen having best camp?

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 13:34:55 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen has had the best training camp of his short career so far, according to QB Philip Rivers.

Fantasy Tip: If Allen can keep up the performance he's had this offseason and continues to build his rapport with Rivers, he could be in for a career year. He may even see a bit of an increased workload with Antonio Gates out the first four weeks of the season. He's easily in the WR2 conversation right now.
