Fantasy Analysis
Week 12 Projections
Jacksonville has given up fantasy points aplenty to tight ends. Meanwhile whatever is going on with Antonio Gates is not good. Here's to hoping his one catch, six yard outing in Week 11 was a fluke.. right?
Receiving: 4 Receptions, 46 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
A lot of folks wrote off Gates heading into last season, trumpeting the arrival of Ladarius Green as the younger man to surpass Gates in the Chargers offense. 'Old man River' Gates put that talk to bed by scoring the most touchdowns he had scored since 2010. In fact, the 12 touchdowns he posted last season were the second highest total of his storied career. The bad news is that Gates will be 35 years old this season and is likely to see his playing time decreased. While he will remain relevant for fantasy purposes, neither of those factors bode well for Gates to match the numbers he posted in 2015.

Receiving: 25 Receptions, 276 Yards, 3 TD.

"I don't belong anywhere near a "stud" list" - Philip Rivers
He needs to be banished from the "stud" list. after 7 weeks, he's only had 1 game with less than 2 turnovers and there's not been a single week when he was a top 12 QB. I was hoping the return of Antonio Gates would give him a bump, but ...
Norv Turner = Worst coach ever!
Only Norv could play at home against one of the worst teams on the NFL and almost get beat. Terrible game plan. They should have one by 20 or more! Wow....
2011 Chargers
So how does everyone feel about the 2011 Chargers? playoff team? possible contender for Super Bowl? Or not even make the playoffs? IMO they'll make the playoffs as long as the special teams doesnt stink it up like last season. Have a chance to go ...
Travis LaBoy
Hey San Diegans.... Is LaBoy starting for the Chargers at OLB this season? Sure would be helpful information for my IDP fantasy league. Many thanks from a person born in Redondo Beach now living in Charleston, SC...
Chargers Cromartie: my worst game ever
In hindsight, and with the perspective of a concerned father, Antonio Cromartie's meltdown Sunday in Denver is less surprising. If no more acceptable. "I take fault for it," Cromartie said. "I played like straight trash." Two ...
