Fantasy Tip: Mariota is expected to be selected early in the first round, so the Chargers likely would have to trade up if they wanted Mariota. The Chargers have Philip Rivers, but he is entering the final year of his contract. Mariota would not be a fantasy option if he joins the Chargers.

San Diego city and county governments have formed an alliance and will work in tandem to solve the stadium project for the San Diego Chargers. The plan is to share costs to bring in consultants and attorneys. "The city and county are going to be in this together," Mayor Kevin Faulconer said. "The leadership of Ron (County Supervisor Ron Roberts) and the Board are terribly important. As you know, we haven't always had everyone together."

The San Diego Chargers remain in search of a fourth option at running back after RB Ryan Mathews turned down their one-year contract offer in favor of signing with the Philadelphia Eagles earlier this offseason. The agent for Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson was dismissive at the notion of any potential trade to the Chargers Wednesday, March 25. The Chargers seem likely to address the need via the NFL draft. Only RB Danny Woodhead, RB Branden Oliver and RB Donald Brown are under contract for 2015.
Fantasy Tip: As things currently stand, expect Oliver to be the workhorse on the ground, while Woodhead could be a decent option in PPR leagues. Brown possesses the least fantasy value as of now, but things could change drastically during the draft and/or training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Oliver could enter offseason workouts as the No. 1 running back, but there is a good chance the team adds a running back in the draft to compete for the starting job. Oliver performed well when he was the starter this past season and could be a No. 2 fantasy back next season if he is the starter.

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers likely will not be traded even though he plans to play out his current contract, according to sources. The team wants to sign Rivers to a long-term contract and could use the franchise tag on him next offseason.
Fantasy Tip: Rivers likely will remain with the team and be the starting quarterback next season. Rivers will have most of his weapons back next season and could be a starting fantasy quarterback most weeks on FantasyScore in 2015.

Oregon QB Marcus Mariota is scheduled to work out for the San Diego Chargers next month, and many around the league are speculating that the team could be serious about trading up for Mariota in the year's draft. The Chargers may be prepared for a future without QB Philip Rivers, as the 2015 season is the final year of his current deal. However, general manager Tom Telesco said that the team isn't thinking of trading Rivers.
Fantasy Tip: The rumors about the Chargers trading for Mariota may be far-fetched. While Rivers should be an acceptable QB1 in many weeks in 2015, Mariota won't be anything more than a weak QB2 in standard leagues in his rookie season, no matter what team he's playing for.
