Week 5 Stock Report Each week I will highlight players and teams who have seen their value rise or fall during the previous week.  I will also try to highlight players that have favorable schedules coming up that could give them a boost in value.  Remember that you always want to sell high and buy low! Stock Up San Diego Super Chargers Philip Rivers continues to show that you don’t have to have a pretty throwing motion to be an accurate quarterback in the NFL (take note Tim Tebow).  Rivers shot-putted himself to a 400 yard passing game and even brought Antonio Gates back to life.  Don’t look now, but Gates has put up three solid games so far this year.  If you are hurting at TE, try to pry him away from an owner who probably has him sitting on the bench as his backup tight end.  Even though Rivers is putting up a ton of yards, he doesn’t really have a top receiver that he leans on each week.  I wouldn’t recommend using any Charger receivers in 10 or 12 team leagues. Danny Woodh...

Philip Rivers deserves some attention after solid Week 4; September (and other standout performers)

Philip Rivers, QB I could sit here and rant about how Peyton Manning is leading what is speculated to be the most incredible season in history, but then I would be regurgitating the same topic you’ll find on the front page of absolutely every sports circulation out there this week. That said, I’ll surely save you the trouble of dragging your tired fantasy obsessed eyes through...

Rivers prospering in no-huddle, no-hurry offense

(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By BERNIE WILSON AP Sports Writer It turns out that Philip Rivers didn't need to be fixed after two tough seasons. He just needed to be plopped into the no-huddle, no-hurry offense that rookie coach Mike McCoy and his top assistants drew up. Rivers has thrown for 400 yards twice in four games after doing it three times in his...

Sit Em. Start Em – Week Five

Sit Em. Start Em – Week Five Start Em Philip Rivers – Rivers continues to impress this season and is looking like a must-start against the lowly Oakland Raiders. He is making the most out of the weapons at his disposal and has already resuscitated the fantasy values of Eddie Royal and Antonio Gates. Rivers comes in as a top-six option this week after putting up top-five numbers...

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pick-Ups – Week 5

Philip Rivers – 72% Yahoo! owned - Rivers shredded the Dallas Defense for 401 yards and 3 TD’s. Rivers has another easy matchups in the Raiders next week and is a good Bye Week replacement.

Cowboys can't stop Rivers, and here comes Peyton

Bruce Carter and the Dallas Cowboys simply couldn't stop Philip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers. That will be their freshest memory when Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos visit on Sunday. ''There's no days off,'' said Carter, a linebacker who was beaten for two touchdowns and another big play as San Diego came back from 11 points down for a 30-21 win...

With his dime to Antonio Gates fresh in our memories and an [...]

San Diego Chargers: 2013 Week 5 NFL Power Rankings (#19)

Last week: 26 (+7) Record: 2-2 The job Head Coach Mike McCoy has done with the offense in his first season with the team is amazing. Despite a largely replacement level supporting cast around a declining Philip Rivers, McCoy has the Chargers moving the ball at an incredible rate, moving the chains on 82% of opportunities, only behind Denver and Indianapolis. The resurgence of Philip...

Malcom Floyd Placed On Injured Reserve

The Chargers have placed receiver Malcom Floyd on injured reserve.Fantasy Spin:Floyd took a hit to the head in Week 2 against the Eagles and was taken off the field on a stretcher. He'll miss the rest of the season with a neck injury. Despite Philip Rivers' resurgence, no Chargers receiver has emerged as a reliable fantasy option as Antonio Gates and Danny Woodhead are Rivers...

2013 Fantasy football start em’ sit em’ week 5

Look at some of the big performances just last week. Danny Woodhead? Really? This third down guy is becoming a stud. New TE's pop up every week, and WR's, well anyone any week can get hot. Yes, this years draft is long gone, but maybe a glimpse into the future?

Chargers-Raiders Preview

While the San Diego Chargers' Philip Rivers and Antonio Gates have turned back the clock in coach Mike McCoy's up-tempo attack, the Oakland Raiders aren't certain what their offense will look like this weekend.

Kiffin Report: Finding the Defense's Weak Links

If there is one thing that makes football special, it is the individual components that add together to create team results. It is a team game - maybe the best team game ever created - but, it relies on each member of the team to carry out his assignment in his particular area of expertise to assist in the greater goal. When there is a weak link, a smart opponent will continue to...
