Fantasy Analysis
During the first half of 2014, Rivers was racking up huge weekly numbers. A myriad of injuries at running back forced him to carry the Chargers offense most weeks. If nagging hand, rib and lower back injuries hadn't dragged down his production late in the year, he would have finished higher than 11th in the fantasy quarterback ranks. San Diego wants to return to its run-first philosophy with a Melvin Gordon/Danny Woodhead/Branden Oliver-led ground game, so less throwing is likely from Rivers. However, if the Chargers can't run the ball effectively again, it's Rivers to the rescue. Most of his top targets are returning, including Keenan Allen, Antonio Gates and Malcom Floyd. Stevie Johnson replaces Eddie Royal. Although Rivers turns 34 in December, he still has plenty of juice left in his arm.

Passing: 3921 Yards, 33 TD, 17 INT.
Rushing: 72 Yards, 0 TD.

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 ...
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...
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 ...
