Waiver Wire Pick-ups!
Danario Alexander – WR Chargers:
Five catches for 134 yards and a touchdown with seven targets last week. He took the starting spot and didn’t look back on Sunday. Royal and Meachem may be around this coming week but Alexander is showing his worth with Philip Rivers. A good pick-up in deeper leagues. At Denver this week.
Chris Ivory – RB Saints:
Seven carries for 72 yards and a touchdown with one catch for 13 yards. Pay attention to Darren Sproles activity also having Mark Ingram and Pierre Thomas back there is not helping his situation. Believe this to be a who has the hot hand situation with the problem being we don’t know who it will be next week. At Oakland next week.
Greg Olsen – TE Panthers:
Olsen has been consistent this year and he finally had his breakout game with nine catches for 102 yards and two touchdowns on Sunday. This is his second week leading the team in targets as the Panthers continue to struggle running the rock. Tampa Bay at home next we...

The Bucs defense found themselves up against the wall for the majority of the game. After some key plays on defense and special teams, Tampa Bay sent the Chargers back to San Diego with a 34-24 loss on Sunday. Philip Rivers and the Chargers struck first just three plays into the game. A 10-yard pass to Danario Alexander turned into an 80-yard catch and run when he broke free from...
At 7th in the AFC, you would think the Chargers would be in the thick of the playoff race, but that's not the case. They're currently tied two other teams for the 7th position, and they're a full two games behind the Pittsburgh Steelers for the last playoff spot.
The Chargers were supposed to raise their game this year. It was thought they would be in a three-way...
After delivering a shot on Chargers’ running back Ryan Mathews Sunday, Buccaneers veteran linebacker Quincy Black fell limp to the ground. He gave everyone a thumbs up as he was carted off on a stretcher and taken to the hospital. But head coach Greg Schiano stated Black has a serious injury. “Overall, he’s going to be okay but it’s serious and how much time that means...
As a season ticket holder to the San Diego Chargers, I tend to get my fair share of emails from the team. Most of them are emails promoting the latest merchandise or sale going on in their online store but one in particular caught my eye. It said “Chargers Fan Code of Conduct Update” in the subject line so it automatically piqued my interest. I opened the email and this is what...
I normally don’t turn off football games despite the score line because there’s always a chance you might miss something truly extraordinary. Nothing emphasized that point better than the last time the Denver Broncos and San Diego Chargers met on a Monday night during week 6 of the regular season, as I managed to watch one of the most incredible comebacks in the 2012 season...

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that Andy Reid would be interested in coaching the Chargers should he and Norv Turner get fired at some point in the coming months.
It’s rare that a head coach who is currently on the seat would have options lined up for him, but Reid is widely respected around the league. There’s been talk that he could end up in Cleveland as well, given...
QB: Joe Flacco, Ravens
Concededly, Flacco's tour de force (21-for-33, 341 passing yards, four total scores) came in opposition to an Oakland team surrendering the fifth-most points to field generals this season. Nevertheless, considering Flacco had failed to surpass 200 yards in three of his previous four outings, owners of the Baltimore quarterback won't be offering...
