San Diego Chargers WR Jacoby Jones will primarily serve as the team's kick returner in 2015, but he can also serve a complementary role in the receiving game. The Chargers averaged just 22.2 yards per kick return in 2014 (ranked 22nd in the league) and 8.8 yards per punt return (No. 16 in the league). Jones averaged 10.1 yards per punt return and 27.4 yards per kick return for the Baltimore Ravens in 2014. Jones' signing will allow WRs Keenan Allen and Eddie Royal to focus on receiving duties. The signing could also mean that SD could move on from Royal, who will be an unrestricted free agent next week.
Fantasy Tip: Jones had just nine catches for 131 yards and no touchdowns in Baltimore last year, so he shouldn't be on the radar of any fantasy football owners in 2015. However, his presence in SD could make their defense/special teams unit a bit more attractive.

Fantasy Tip: After coming off a season that saw Jones only record nine catches, it is tough to think that he will have much of an impact in 2015 other than on special teams.

Fantasy Tip: Jones caught only nine passes for the Ravens in 2014, so it's hard to believe he'd make much of an impact in the passing game for the Bolts in 2015 if he lands there. Jones is much better known for his special teams prowess, even though he's struggled in that arena lately, too.

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers is not letting recent talk about the team leaving San Diego influence him about re-signing. "Is the location of this team going to be a deciding factor?" Rivers said in a radio station interview. "I can't honestly tell you that it will be."
Fantasy Tip: Rivers isn't worried about it, and that's a sign it won't affect his play in 2015 either. Rivers is still a solid QB1 selection in most drafts moving forward.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if the Chargers are interested in bringing Mathews back next season, so he could hit the free-agent market. Mathews' fantasy value will be determined if he earns a starting job and which team he joins. He could be an option in the middle rounds if he is a starter.
