Win My Fantasy League:
The Chargers needed a deep threat to replace Vincent Jackson and may have found themselves quite a bargain in the talented Robert Meachem.
Meachem will slide into the number two role in this offense and has a chance to supplant Malcolm Floyd as the effective number one option before the season is complete.
Meachem goes from a crowded receiving corps in New Orleans to one with a gaping hole San Diego.
Conventional wisdom would suggest that leaving Drew Brees would be a detriment to any players fantasy value but the same cannot be said for Meachem who will be joining a less competitive situation with a QB that is just as good, if not better at finding his receivers downfield.
Robert Meachem – Meachem should step in as the number two receiver in this offense and post a YPC that will be among the league leaders. A 50+ reception, 900+ yard campaign seems all but assured if he stays healthy. Meachem looks like a flex with solid WR3 upside and will be on many sleeper l...

Step away from that ledge Falcons fans, we have our first free agent visit lined up! I am almost in a state of shock that D. Orlando Ledbetter said Atlanta should look at Marcus McNeill... and it is actually happening.
McNeill plans to visit Atlanta next week hopefully to help shore up a left tackle spot that has been as successful as the Hindenburg.
Marcus receives a playful...
You can't fault Philip Rivers' competitive nature, even as the team around him looks like it's falling apart. The San Diego Chargers missed the playoffs last season and conceded the AFC West crown to the Tim Tebow led Denver Broncos. Now Rivers would love to see the Broncos bring Peyton Manning aboard. Not because he has a personal vendetta against the guy. It's because...

In 15 games, Gregory recorded 67 tackles and a pick. His best season came in 2009 when he posted...
