Chargers | Ladarius Green likely will start

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 12:22:43 -0700

San Diego Chargers TE Ladarius Green likely will be the starting tight end with TE Antonio Gates being suspended for the first four games of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Green has shown promise in previous years but did not put up great stats last season. Owners could consider Green as a short-term starter in fantasy leagues but should not count on him as a weekly starting option.

Chargers | Antonio Gates suspension update

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 13:26:40 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates has been suspended four games for violating the league's policy on performance- enhancing drugs. It was previously reported that Gates had been suspended for substance abuse.

Fantasy Tip: If you still want to draft Gates, you should draft Ladarius Green as a handcuff later on. Gates should be regarded more as a low-end TE2 now, while Green could be in TE2 status through the first four weeks of the season.

Chargers | Antonio Gates suspended four games

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 13:05:53 -0700

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates has been suspended four games by the NFL for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Fantasy Tip: Gates' fantasy value will take a hit with this suspension, and he will drop in the rankings. Gates should still be an option for owners in fantasy drafts, but they should also select a solid No. 2 tight end to fill in for Gates while he is out. Ladarius Green likely will start for the Chargers while Gates is out and could be a short-term fantasy option.

Chargers | Danny Woodhead looks to be healthy

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 19:01:32 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead (ankle) missed 13 games last season due to a broken ankle, but he appeared fast and healthy in offseason work.

Fantasy Tip: Woodhead will have plenty of company in the backfield with highly-touted rookie Melvin Gordon in the mix, as well as Branden Oliver. Woodhead should reprise the role of third-down back and red-zone option, making him a decent late-round addition as a potential flex play.

Chargers | Keenan Allen losing weight

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 13:15:30 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen said he's been losing weight in order to play faster this season.

Fantasy Tip: Allen only managed 783 yards and 4 touchdowns in his second year. He didn't see a lot separation from defenders, which is the reason why he's trying to become faster. Encouragingly, Allen was targeted 121 times and caught 77 passes in 2014, both up from his rookie campaign. If he can get closer to his rookie numbers, he could end up as a WR2.

Chargers | Stevie Johnson has chemistry with QB

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 10:16:35 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Stevie Johnson showed good chemistry with QB Philip Rivers during offseason workouts.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson should have a solid role in the offense since he signed a three-year deal with the team this offseason. It is a good sign that he is building chemistry with Rivers, and he could be a late-round option in fantasy leagues this season.

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 12:44:19 -0700

Chargers | Ladarius Green to see more touches?

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 14:51:51 -0700

San Diego Chargers TE Ladarius Green may be more involved in the offense this year, according to QB Philip Rivers. "I hope and I think we all agree that he needs to be a bigger part of [the offense] as we move forward this year," Rivers said. "We need to have him be a weapon for us because he'll be a heck of a matchup for us on some defenses."

Fantasy Tip: Green was one of the bigger, if not the biggest, fantasy disappointments at tight end last year. He was supposed to take the baton from Antonio Gates, but Gates is the one that produced. Gates will still be the San Diego tight end to own in 2015, but Green is a great handcuff and has the potential to break out.

Chargers | Danny Woodhead ready to return

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 11:45:06 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead said he wants to be the same person this season as he was before suffering a season-ending broken ankle in Week 3 last year. "I think I am [the same person]. That's the main thing -- getting comfortable and going out and doing it, and then showing yourself that you can do it again," Woodhead said. Head coach Mike McCoy praised Woodhead's work ethic and isn't surprised he's ready to play again.

Fantasy Tip: Woodhead's specialty is catching balls out of the backfield. He has three top-25 finishes in point-per-reception leagues since 2011. He could very well have had another one if he hadn't been injured last season. If he can maintain his good health, he's a low-end RB2 candidate in PPR formats.

Chargers | Melvin Gordon compared to Jamaal Charles

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 19:47:38 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon has been compared to Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles by multiple teammates because of his size, speed and patience.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon should have no problem seizing the lead back role in San Diego, and he should be considered a mid-range RB2.
