Fantasy Analysis

Did you think Rivers was washed up? If you did, you're not alone. Heading into last season, a huge majority of fantasy owners understandably had written off Rivers as a broken-down turnover machine with a worn out arm. The San Diego triggerman has head coach Mike McCoy to thank for rejuvenating his career. McCoy's quick-hitting short passing attack was just what Rivers needed to compensate for his diminished arm strength and the team's athletically limited offensive line. The 32-year-old Rivers rebounded nicely, tossing his second-highest number of touchdown passes and amassing a career-best completion percentage on his way to earning 2013 Comeback Player of the Year honors. Rivers averaged a fantasy friendly 279.9 passing yards and 2.0 touchdown passes per regular-season game. The rock-solid Rivers deserves consideration as a QB2 with upside in 2014. His supporting cast includes rising star Keenan Allen, the aging-but-still-reasonably-effective Antonio Gates and solid slot guy Eddie Royal, who tied Allen for the team lead in touchdown grabs (8). Danny Woodhead, who finished second on the team in receptions last season, will continue to operate in his surprisingly productive receiving-back role. The Chargers also want to get the speedy Ladarius Green more involved. Malcom Floyd has been cleared to resume action after suffering a career-threatening neck injury last season and is reportedly looking like his old self. Frank Reich replaces Ken Whisenhunt as offensive coordinator, but the switch is not a big deal. Reich, a former NFL quarterback, served as San Diego's quarterbacks coach last season, so he knows Rivers and head coach Mike McCoy's scheme.

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

San Diego Chargers Team Talk
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 ...
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....
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 ...
