San Diego Chargers @ New Orleans Saints
San Diego Chargers (3-1): Philip Rivers has started out slow this season and has already thrown four interceptions. A very favorable match-up this week Rivers is a solid play.
Ryan Mathews is listed as the No. 2 running back on the depth chart and is expected to split carries with Jackie Battle after having fumbling issues since his return from his clavicle injury. Battle has earned himself a role with stellar play thus far this season.
Malcom Floyd has a very good match-up against the oft-burnt Saints secondary. River's clear No. 1 target Floyd has been a steady fantasy play this season.
Robert Meachem is playing this week with a possible chip on his shoulder going up against his old team the New Orleans Saints.
Antonio Gates has been quite the disappointment this season and if he is to have a bounce back game this is the week he does it.
Good starts: Philip Rivers, Ryan Mathews, Malcom Floyd, Antonio Gates
Middle of the road: Jackie Battle
Bad starts: Robert Meachem
New Orleans Saints (0-4): Drew Brees is a must start every week and a top-tier fantasy quarterback.
Darren Sproles is the perfect flex play every week. He is a great receiver out of the backfield and is used often in the Saints offense.
Pierre Thomas is still the better option over Mark Ingram.
Marques Colston is a good play in this match-up and most weeks.
Lance Moore is out this week making Devery Henderson the No. 2 wide receiver.
Jimmy Graham is arguably the best tight-end in the league and a must start every week.
Good starts: Drew Brees, Jimmy Graham, Marques Colston, Darren Sproles
Middle of the road: Pierre Thomas
Bad starts: Mark Ingram, Devery Henderson
