San Diego Chargers RBs Melvin Gordon, Danny Woodhead and Branden Oliver will each be "used to their strengths" in the upcoming season in helping comprise a committee, according to running backs coach Ollie Wilson. "Those guys can do a lot of different things and they have all bought in to working together and having their own role instead of being (angry) not getting all the touches," he said. "They understand we don't have just one starter here. They are all part of our scheme and system."
Fantasy Tip: As proven last year, the Chargers can make this work for all involved. Woodhead, for instance, is as good as anyone in catching passes out of the backfield, and is capable of running all sorts of routes. He's also serviceable in goal-line situations, which arguably makes him the most valuable of all Chargers running backs. Gordon probably has the highest ceiling and will still see a lot of work, though this may hinder his overall outlook, considering the hype he had as a rookie last year. Oliver, meanwhile, should also see some usage in both rush attempts and receiving targets.

San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (knee) participated in individual drills during organized team activities Monday, May 23, and is rehabilitating well from microfracture knee surgery he had in January.
Fantasy Tip: Whether Gordon will be available for the regular season opener isn't clear at this point, but the fact that he's recovering well and is participating in drills is encouraging. The surgery is still a concern, though, and Gordon should not be drafted as more than a low-end RB2, and it's probably safer to view him as an RB3.

San Diego Chargers CB Brandon Flowers is 10 to 12 pounds lighter this offseason than he was at this point last offseason. Flowers has also recuperated from the knee injury that plagued him last season. "To me, last year was unacceptable," Flowers said. "But I had to get it out of my head. I knew what kind of place I was in last year, and I just can't go back to where I was. It's erased."

Fantasy Tip: Mettenberger does reunite with his former head coach in Ken Whisenhunt, but he'll ride the bench as long as Phillip Rivers is healthy. Mettenberger can be left on waivers in traditional leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Henry is slated to be the heir apparent to Antonio Gates when Gates decides to hang up his cleats. Henry should still see a good amount of playing time in his rookie season, but don't expect TE1 numbers right away with Gates still the main tight end.
