San Diego Chargers RUMORS: Melvin Gordon to Breakout in Fantasy Football

Will the Chargers or Browns prove to be the winners of this game? Once we have gotten into the season, I really just don’t think it is an issue. “So, way down the list”.

Defensively, San Diego has been one of the worst teams in the league. And the party line is that his team is doing good things (though obviously not enough of them) and can still improve (again, obvious).

The San Diego Chargers are a team that seems to get ruined by the injury bug every year. McCown is firmly entrenched as the team’s starting quarterback, so he his leash is not so short that he’d be pulled for a poor half. The Browns don’t have any world-beaters at running back, but the combination of Isaiah Crowell and third-round rookie Duke Johnson could pose a problem if technique and fundamentals are poorly executed.

San Diego will win pretty decisively on Sunday and take a step toward getting back on track. The pass defense hasn’t been too bad as they rank 19th, allowing an average of 237.3 yards per game.

The San Diego Chargers host the Cleveland Browns in one of the NFL Games on Sunday, October 4 kick off time at 4:05 PM ET, at Qualcomm Stadium, San Diego, Ca. Certainly. I’m confident there is no rift in the locker room. “We elected to show return and go after it. Obviously, didnt get it but we have to do a better job of staying off the punter. I would be lying to you. “That’s one thing we have to be very mindful of – making sure that we’re not letting him know what we’re in before the snap as opposed to after”. Shut down the running game, take away the WR and man up while the offense is hobbled. Free safety Tashaun Gipson is playing center field, an area that quarterbacks haven’t targeted. Both running backs are RB2’s this week.

“Our leaders know that, and they let us know that, especially the young guys”.

The Chargers (1-2) were manhandled in consecutive losses at Cincinnati and Minnesota. “It’s not a situation you want to be in week in and week out”. But from a fantasy football perspective, Gordon hasn’t lived up to the considerably hype that surrounded him this preseason. OG Cameron Erving is sitting on the bench, but how can you justify that when the offensive line has been disappointing against the run? After injuries forced King Dunlap, Orlando Franklin and Chris Watt to leave Week 3’s loss in Minnesota, the Bolts signed six-year veteran center J.D. Walton and promoted tackle Tyreek Burwell off the practice squad on Tuesday. Rivers has been under pressure for 39.5 percent of his dropbacks (9 among starters), and while the Browns struggled to generate a pass rush last week against Oakland, we did see them get after Marcus Mariota in Week 2.

“Maybe I shouldn’t have mentioned how good our depth was”, quipped Rivers, before noting that the battle plan now was to weather the storm and get the regulars healthy for important games later in the season.
