Five Takeaways from Week 2

This weekend was my Waterloo. Following a two-year reign atop the NFL prediction world, my empire came crumbling down. Heading into tonight’s Philadelphia-Indianapolis match-up, I own a Week 2 record of…sigh…5-10. I know there's really nobody to blame for this but myself, well, I don't know, maybe the Bills, the Niners, or Mr. T or, or the Jets... Forgive me, then,...

How the Chargers can beat Seattle: Get the ball to Ladarius Green

It’s entirely too early to say so, but Sunday’s game for San Diego is just about as close to a must-win as you can get in the second week of the season. The Bolts will host the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks in their home opener, and are in dire need of a victory. Since 1990, teams that start 0-2 only make the playoffs about 12 percent of the time. Seattle’s “Legion...

Behind Enemy Lines: Can the Chargers pull off a must-win miracle vs. Seahawks?

On Sunday the Seattle Seahawks will line up against the San Diego Chargers. The last time these two hooked up in the preseason Seattle blew them out of the water 41-14 in a game that I was far, far, too drunk to remember, so I went and found an expert to talk to about how the game might go this time around. I spoke with Alex Cusick of cover32′s Chargers site and asked a few questions...

The Seattle Seahawks Hangover – The Pack Got Smacked, But Can We Pull The Plug On The Chargers?

Thursday went just about as well as any Seahawks fan could hope for. In fact, to toot my own horn, I called a score of 35-17. A friend in Dallas asked me what I though the spread would be, then politely indicated that I was overzealous. I repeated the same conversation at my gym to similar response. Oh heavens no! It must be closer! That’s what all the ESPN experts say! Okay, everybody...

Four keys to a San Diego Chargers win over Arizona Monday night

No more training camp, no more practice games, no more speculation; the time has finally come for the San Diego Chargers to lace up their spikes and play for keeps. There is no doubt this roster is deeper and better than it was a year ago, but has it improved enough to slug it out with one of the more difficult schedules in the NFL? While many Chargers fans are expecting, or at least...

5 Reasons Why the Arizona Cardinals Will Lose Monday

We have to do our due diligence on San Diego and give five reasons why the Cardinals will lose to the Chargers. We don’t want to talk about them but here they are. 1. Arizona will get destroyed covering the tight end. The Cardinals were the worst at this last season in terms of yards and touchdowns allowed. When you have a solid talent like Antonio Gates and up-and-coming star...

Target Analysis: Week 1

With uncertainty at running back in fantasy football, tight ends and wide receivers might be the most important sections of a fantasy football lineup this season. The popularization of the Zero RB concept places extra importance on drafting pass catchers who are capable of exceeding their ADP and finding this year's equivalent of Josh Gordon and Alshon Jeffery. That requires...

2014 Sleeper Targets

With one final weekend of drafting set to get underway following tonight’s preseason finales, it’s a good time to re-examine who some of the better sleepers are to snag in those mid-to-late rounds. Here’s a peek at my favorites, in the order I prioritize them, not the order I feel they need to be drafted. While I like Kelvin Benjamin a lot – particularly in keeper formats...

San Diego Chargers Fantasy Football Outlook

The San Diego Chargers took a step forward last year and made the playoffs for the first time since 2009 under new coach Mike McCoy. Largely due to Ken Whisenhunt's new offensive system reinvigorating the Chargers offense and reviving Philip Rivers’ career. The Chargers’ success lead to top ten seasons from both Rivers and running back Ryan Mathews, who completed his...

Ladarius Green changed where it counts

It is striking, how little and much he's changed. Ladarius Green came to San Diego modest and mild-mannered. He revered the veterans. His voice rarely, if ever, raised. All that is unchanged for the 2012 fourth-round draft pick, whose humble, quiet nature today is still that of the raw, 6-foot-6 speed stick whose future seemed so bright. "Teamwork makes the dream work...

Five Tight Ends To Target Late In Fantasy Drafts

A viable strategy in fantasy football is to wait on the tight end position. In fact, if you don’t draft one of the big three that is Jimmy Graham, Julius Thomas and Rob Gronkowski, you should wait until the draft is in the double digit rounds to pick up a tight end. It would probably be wise to pick up two in this scenario. This tactic allows owners to focus on picking running...

Projected Chargers Offensive Starters

The 2013 Chargers saw some great success among the very talented AFC West division. They looked to up and comers, some veterans and a few resurgent players to thrive late in the season.

Training Camp Preview: The Bolts may have the best tight end duo in the NFL

When it comes to the tight end position, the San Diego Chargers have had little worries in the past decade. Antonio Gates has brought stability to the position in America’s Finest City since 2003 during an impressive run that includes eight Pro Bowls. Gates should pass Lance Alworth as the Chargers’ franchise career receiving leader sometime in 2014, and last year, showed he...
