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.

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.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon wants to improve, and was looking forward to more game action, but the team could take the conservative route and not risk him aggravating the injury and making it worse.

Chargers | Keenan Allen talks Philip Rivers

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 13:54:02 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen thinks he has developed a better chemistry with QB Philip Rivers this offseason. "You can look at the coverage, and you kind of know what Phil likes to throw in the play call we have and the coverage they're giving us," Allen said. "Just knowing that helps a lot."

Fantasy Tip: If Allen's words come to fruition, it could be a career year for Allen. He should be Rivers' top target at least until Antonio Gates returns from his four-game suspension, and perhaps even after that. It sounds like Allen is in for a solid year if he can stay healthy. Draft him as a WR2.

Chargers | Melvin Gordon wants to improve

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 13:08:06 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon wants to be a more decisive runner. Gordon said he needs to work on calming himself down and let the game come to him, acknowledging that success is a process and doesn't happen right away.

Fantasy Tip: It's a good thing that Gordon is accepting this realization early in his career. There are high expectations for the rookie, but those expectations should come with patience. He still has RB2 upside.

Chargers | SD will use shotgun less

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 12:27:39 -0700

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers and the rest of the San Diego offense will not be lined up in the shotgun as much in 2015. Rivers will line up under center more this season in an attempt to create a more balanced offense, according to head coach Mike McCoy. McCoy added that the Chargers' opponent will influence how often they use shotgun.

Fantasy Tip: The Chargers have a solid group of running backs, so they can afford not to use the shotgun formation as much this season. This won't necessarily mean less production for Rivers, but that could end up being the case. He's still worth drafting as a low-end QB1 to high-end QB2.

Chargers | Melvin Gordon ready for more game action

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 17:51:47 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon has been working on his pass-protection technique in practice, and he's eager for the second preseason game Saturday, Aug. 22, against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon totaled just 11 yards on only six carries in the first preseason game, but he expects to see considerably more playing time in the second game.
