Fantasy Analysis
Week 12 Projections
Jacksonville is a favorable matchup but as we've seen from Rivers' waning fantasy production in recent weeks, a gimpy Antonio Gates and the absence of both Keenan Allen and Malcolm Floyd are going to tend to have a negative impact. Rivers is basically in the conversation as a potential fantasy starter any given week, but we'd be remiss if we didn't advise caution with so few viable receiving weapons around him.
Passsing: 283 Yards, 2 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 3 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
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: 4500 Yards, 27 TD, 22 INT.
Rushing: 50 Yards, 0 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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
