Fantasy Tip: Benjamin showed no ill-effects of the knee injury which had him listed as questionable. He has four or more grabs in six of his seven games, but faces a Denver defense in Week 8 which limited him to season lows of three grabs and 17 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Gates has been bothered by a hamstring injury, and he hasn't posted more than 38 yards receiving in any of his five outings. Avoid him in all but the deepest of fantasy leagues until he starts to produce more consistent results.

Fantasy Tip: Williams has emerged as the cream of the crop in the Chargers receiver corps, and he is worth using as a WR3 in most fantasy formats most weeks. However, he isn't worth using in Week 8 in Denver, as the Broncos limited him to three grabs for 28 yards in Week 6.

San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon rushed 22 times for 68 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 7 game against the Atlanta Falcons, and he added six receptions for 53 yards and a touchdown on seven targets.
Fantasy Tip: Gordon scored zero touchdowns last season, but is making up for lost time in his sophomore NFL campaign. He has eight rushing touchdowns and two receiving scores. He has emerged as a bona fide RB1 in all fantasy formats. He faces the only team which held him out of the end zone this season, the Denver Broncos, on the road in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Imagine if Rivers actually had an NFL-caliber cadre of receivers for a full season. He remains a decent low-end QB1 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. He faces a difficult matchup in Week 8 in Denver.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin should receive is normal workload and likely will be a solid part of the passing game. Owners should consider him a No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon's 48-yard run in Week 6 was the longest of his career, and offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt said the offense is working on "a lot of things" to try to generate plays in the run game.
Fantasy Tip: Gordon has the San Diego backfield to himself, and his huge workload will keep in the RB1 conversation with or without big plays.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin should receive his normal workload against the Atlanta Falcons this week and probably will have a solid role in the passing game. He can be a decent No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers has faced Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll or his protégé - Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley - seven times since 2013. In the four regular-season matchups against those teams (three against Bradley), Rivers has posted a passer rate of 110.0 each time and not thrown an interception.
Fantasy Tip: Rivers faces another Carroll disciple in Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn in Week 7 and figures to have similar success against a defense giving up an average of 297.7 passing yards and 2.3 touchdowns to quarterbacks this season. Chargers-Falcons definitely has shootout potential, so owners would be wise to invest in Rivers wherever possible.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin is expected to play this week, but owners will need to check the inactive list to make sure he is playing. He will have a solid role in the passing game if he plays in Week 7 and could be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.
