Chargers | Melvin Gordon runs well in loss

Sun, 28 Aug 2016 18:28:08 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon had four carries for 51 yards and a touchdown in a 23-10 preseason loss to the Minnesota Vikings Sunday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon has looked sharp in the preseason. After a disappointing rookie year, he looks like a RB3 candidate. He could provide great value in the middle rounds.

Chargers | Branden Oliver tears Achilles' tendon

Sun, 28 Aug 2016 16:13:09 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Branden Oliver (Achilles') will miss the season after tearing his Achilles' against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Tough break for the Chargers' No. 3 back, who has filled admirably well at times during his first two years in San Diego. His injury likely locks in Dreamius Smith into a roster spot as the third back behind Melvin Gordon and Danny Woodhead, while fellow first-year player Kenneth Farrow's chances at making the final 53 increase substantially as well.

Chargers | Torn ACL feared for Branden Oliver

Sun, 28 Aug 2016 12:23:15 -0700

It is believed that San Diego Chargers RB Branden Oliver (Achilles') tore his Achilles' tendon based on initial tests, according to a source. He will undergo more tests before the diagnosis is official.

Fantasy Tip: Oliver had an important role despite being San Diego's No. 3 running back. Assuming he did suffer a torn Achilles', Danny Woodhead and Melvin Gordon would likely be more involved. No one else in the backfield has much fantasy relevance. Gordon and Woodhead are both RB2 considerations in standard leagues and PPR leagues, respectively.

Chargers | Branden Oliver leaves game

Sun, 28 Aug 2016 11:32:54 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Branden Oliver (Achilles') suffered an Achilles' tendon injury during the preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings Sunday, Aug. 28, and will not return.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to find out the severity of the injury. Melvin Gordon and Danny Woodhead would receive more playing time if Oliver is out for an extended period of time. Gordon should receive most of the carries this season and can be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues. Woodhead will likely be more involved in the passing game and will be a No. 2 or No. 3 back in point-per-reception leagues.

Chargers | Joey Bosa offered to defer bonus

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 20:06:28 -0700

Bosa has offered to defer a significant portion of the signing bonus to March 2017 in order to get the deal done. The team's position is that it's still not enough of a deferral.

Chargers | San Diego pull offer to Joey Bosa

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 12:10:58 -0700

San Diego Chargers DE Joey Bosa received an offer from the Chargers, but they have pulled the offer because Bosa's representatives declined the offer, according to a source. The offer to Bosa was the highest cash payout in the initial calendar year for a first-round pick in team history. The Chargers said they are not sure Bosa will be able to contribute over a full season because of the time he has missed during training camp.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin has quiet debut

Sat, 20 Aug 2016 05:37:31 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin caught one pass for 11 yards in the preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals Friday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin missed some time during training camp because of an injury but should be more involved in the offense moving forward. He likely will be one of the starting receivers this season and can be a No. 4 wide receiver in most fantasy leagues.

Chargers | Tyrell Johnson has solid outing

Sat, 20 Aug 2016 05:25:14 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Tyrell Johnson caught four passes for 47 yards in the preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals Friday, Aug. 19. He was targeted six times during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is competing with Dontrelle Inman for the No. 3 receiver job and may be the frontrunner at this point. He would receive some targets if he wins the job but would be behind several players in terms of being a top target. Johnson probably can be avoided during fantasy drafts but could be a waiver wire option during the season.
