Jackie Battle started for the Chargers against the Chiefs on Sunday and was getting a majority of the early work. Battle got six of the Chargers first seven rushing attempts as they built a 17-0 lead Â— and Battle scored a touchdown.
San Diego general manager A.J. Smith threatened to send Ryan Mathews packing over his fumbling problems, telling the San Diego Union-Tribune he could "be somebody else's fumbler."
The Chargers did follow through with their threat and benched Mathews against the Chiefs. WhileBattle played pretty well when Mathews was out early this season with a broken clavicle, the San Diego offense is not going to be as good with Mathews is nailed to the bench. Source: Yahoo! Sports

Robert Meachem was touted as a #1 WR by the Chargers this offseason when the brought him in as a free agent this offseason.Â The problem is that he is not a #1 WR.Â Even with Philip Rivers slinginâ€™ it, Meachem canâ€™t get it going.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Marty Schottenheimer was in town for the Chiefs' alumni weekend before heading back to his home in Charlotte, N.C., and back into retirement.

Week 4 began the bye weeks with both Indianapolis and Pittsburgh taking Sunday off. This week the number of teams on bye will expand to four, which will have fantasy owners searching for viable replacements off of waivers. As you'll read, there are many options to look at this week.
Brandon Weeden, CLE - After Week 1 it was hard to imagine recommending Weeden at...
Week 4 is interesting, as it is really the first week where we can start to assume that some of the things we are seeing from fantasy defenses are an indicator of the teamâ€™s relative strength on each side of the ball, as opposed to just 1 week blips. With that in mind, Iâ€™m answering [...]
One question. Did you start Brian Hartline against the Cards? Chances are you didnâ€™t. Well, the bad news I donâ€™t Hartline wonâ€™t be putting up 245 yds receiving again, but the good news is he may have merged as a viable fantasy threat. Hartline is certainly not a WR1 option, but he could be a solid Flex play going forward. Just donâ€™t expect 200 yards a game...
