Fantasy Tip: Oliver doesn't have a big frame, and it remains to be seen if he can shoulder the load as a lead back for the entire season. He will likely have the first shot at be the No. 1 back, but San Diego could add depth at the position in the draft. For now, consider Oliver a RB2.

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers may be losing faith in the organization, according to NFL Network analyst and former Chargers' RB LaDainian Tomlinson. "The parts around him keep on moving… Philip could be looking at the situation and thinking 'we're not close to winning a championship anytime soon'," Tomlinson said. Rivers, however, has shown up for the start of the offseason program.
Fantasy Tip: It's promising that Rivers is present for the start of the offseason, but all is not well in San Diego it seems. There has been speculation that Rivers could be traded in correlation with the NFL Draft, but that remains to be seen, of course. He should still be regarded as a fringe QB1.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers is expected to play out the final year of his contract since he does not known where the team will play in the future. There have been rumors that Rivers could be traded leading up to the draft, but it appears the team wants to keep Rivers. Rivers may not be an every week starter in fantasy leagues next season but there will be matchups where he could be a solid starting option.

Fantasy Tip: Trade rumors have been swirling, as the Chargers could deal Rivers for the No. 2 overall pick and tab Marcus Mariota as their franchise quarterback. So far nothing has been done, so Rivers continues to get ready for the season. Either way, he’ll be a decent low-end QB1 in standard fantasy wherever he is in 2015.

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates said he doesn't want to play as many snaps in 2015 as he did last year. "With injuries and whatnot, I played a little bit more than they expected me to play last season," Gates said. "I was playing the whole game. How I feel next year, it depends on how much volume they have me doing. I'd like to come in on third-and-7s, red zones, those situations. That's what my contribution is at anyway."
Fantasy Tip: Gates was a pleasant surprise with 12 touchdowns in 2014, which was the second-most of his eventual Hall of Fame career. It sounds like this is the year he takes a step back that people were expecting last year. Ladarius Green's time to shine could be upon us, but Philip Rivers is very reliant on Gates. View Gates as a mid-to-low TE1, with Green closing in on him as a high TE2.

University of Oregon QB Marcus Mariota worked out for the San Diego Chargers Tuesday, April 14, with head coach Mike McCoy, offensive coordinator Frank Reich, quarterbacks coach Nick Sirianni and several front office members in attendance, sources said. The Chargers pick No. 17 overall, and it would be highly unlikely a camp would allow its client to work out for a team that far back without a strong sense a trade up is a real possibility.
Fantasy Tip: If the Tampa Bay Buccaneers elect to pick Mariota No. 1 overall, then all of this is obviously a moot point. But if the Bucs choose Florida State’s Jameis Winston, Mariota would be there at No. 2 and the Tennessee Titans could be the trade partner for the Bolts. Mariota’s fantasy value is murky at this point, as he could be drafted and sit or he could be drafted to start immediately.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota certainly would not be around when the Chargers pick, so they would obviously need to trade up. But the team has had interest in Mariota for a while. Philip Rivers is getting a little long in the tooth, and Mariota could be their QB of the near future. Stay tuned.

Fantasy Tip: Allen had six more receptions last season, but his 783 yards and four touchdowns fell way short his rookie breakout season totals. Allen's usage in the slot will allow him to be used on more intermediate routes to rack up more yards before contact. Allen is a low-end WR2 with upside.
