Chargers | Philip Rivers trade unlikely

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 11:09:37 -0700

Updating previous reports, San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers is unlikely to be traded to the Tennessee Titans on draft day this Thursday, April 30. A deal couldn't be done without Rivers signing a contract extension and passing a physical with the Titans, and neither of those have been in motion this week. The Cleveland Browns and St. Louis Rams are other teams that may be willing to trade with the Titans for the No. 2 overall pick in order to take Oregon QB Marcus Mariota.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers is likely to stay in San Diego for at least one more season, and he has the weapons around him to continue his fine 2014 season as a strong QB1 option most weeks.

Chargers | Branden Oliver bulking up

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 21:21:44 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Branden Oliver said he wants to break more tackles in 2015 and has spent the offseason working on his power and strength.

Fantasy Tip: Oliver doesn't have a big frame, and it remains to be seen if he can shoulder the load as a lead back for the entire season. He will likely have the first shot at be the No. 1 back, but San Diego could add depth at the position in the draft. For now, consider Oliver a RB2.

Chargers | Philip Rivers disgruntled with SD?

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 14:25:28 -0700

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers may be losing faith in the organization, according to NFL Network analyst and former Chargers' RB LaDainian Tomlinson. "The parts around him keep on moving… Philip could be looking at the situation and thinking 'we're not close to winning a championship anytime soon'," Tomlinson said. Rivers, however, has shown up for the start of the offseason program.

Fantasy Tip: It's promising that Rivers is present for the start of the offseason, but all is not well in San Diego it seems. There has been speculation that Rivers could be traded in correlation with the NFL Draft, but that remains to be seen, of course. He should still be regarded as a fringe QB1.

Chargers | SD plans to keep Philip Rivers

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 11:22:43 -0700

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers is the team's starting quarterback, and the team intends to keep it that way for a while, according to general manager Tom Telesco.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers is expected to play out the final year of his contract since he does not known where the team will play in the future. There have been rumors that Rivers could be traded leading up to the draft, but it appears the team wants to keep Rivers. Rivers may not be an every week starter in fantasy leagues next season but there will be matchups where he could be a solid starting option.

Chargers | Philip Rivers at offseason workouts

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 17:58:45 -0700

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers was present for the first day of offseason workouts Monday, April 20, as expected. It is business as usual for Rivers.

Fantasy Tip: Trade rumors have been swirling, as the Chargers could deal Rivers for the No. 2 overall pick and tab Marcus Mariota as their franchise quarterback. So far nothing has been done, so Rivers continues to get ready for the season. Either way, he’ll be a decent low-end QB1 in standard fantasy wherever he is in 2015.

Chargers | Antonio Gates wants workload lightened

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 06:09:47 -0700

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates said he doesn't want to play as many snaps in 2015 as he did last year. "With injuries and whatnot, I played a little bit more than they expected me to play last season," Gates said. "I was playing the whole game. How I feel next year, it depends on how much volume they have me doing. I'd like to come in on third-and-7s, red zones, those situations. That's what my contribution is at anyway."

Fantasy Tip: Gates was a pleasant surprise with 12 touchdowns in 2014, which was the second-most of his eventual Hall of Fame career. It sounds like this is the year he takes a step back that people were expecting last year. Ladarius Green's time to shine could be upon us, but Philip Rivers is very reliant on Gates. View Gates as a mid-to-low TE1, with Green closing in on him as a high TE2.

Chargers | SD to trade up for Marcus Mariota?

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 21:04:12 -0700

University of Oregon QB Marcus Mariota worked out for the San Diego Chargers Tuesday, April 14, with head coach Mike McCoy, offensive coordinator Frank Reich, quarterbacks coach Nick Sirianni and several front office members in attendance, sources said. The Chargers pick No. 17 overall, and it would be highly unlikely a camp would allow its client to work out for a team that far back without a strong sense a trade up is a real possibility.

Fantasy Tip: If the Tampa Bay Buccaneers elect to pick Mariota No. 1 overall, then all of this is obviously a moot point. But if the Bucs choose Florida State’s Jameis Winston, Mariota would be there at No. 2 and the Tennessee Titans could be the trade partner for the Bolts. Mariota’s fantasy value is murky at this point, as he could be drafted and sit or he could be drafted to start immediately.

Chargers | SD to work out Marcus Mariota

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 17:38:29 -0700

The San Diego Chargers will work out University of Oregon QB Marcus Mariota in Eugene Tuesday, April 14. The workout had been scheduled for Wednesday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota certainly would not be around when the Chargers pick, so they would obviously need to trade up. But the team has had interest in Mariota for a while. Philip Rivers is getting a little long in the tooth, and Mariota could be their QB of the near future. Stay tuned.
