Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Chargers were a disappointment last season but still went 7-9, which is respectable. The offense was the big issue for San Diego last season but should be improved some this season with new coach Mike McCoy at the helm. McCoy should provide a boost for the offense. The defense is pretty solid with a good group of veterans and youngsters, so there is talent on both sides of the ball. This team can improve some on last year and challenge for a playoff spot. Rivers could be the key to the season. He was a mess much of last season, so if he can regain some of his past form, good things could be in store for the Chargers.

FANTASY BREAKOUT

Vincent Brown, WR. Brown had his season derailed last year because of an ankle injury. He was going to have a big role offensively but didn't get that chance. He is healthy this year, though, and will get a chance to compete for a starting job. He has the skill set to excel in this offense and emerge as the top passing target for Philip Rivers. Brown isn't a big receiver but runs good routes and has plenty of speed to stretch the field. He is worth a late-round grab come draft day.

FANTASY DUD

Malcom Floyd, WR. Floyd has been a productive starter for the Chargers through the years but his days of starting could be ending sooner than later. He is going to be 32 years old and while his numbers have been solid for the Chargers, they have never been off the charts. The emergence of Brown and Danario Alexander could make Floyd the fourth option in this passing game this season (Antonio Gates). Floyd could see a sharp decline in targets.

Team Notes

Apr 17, 08:32 PM The San Diego Chargers have officially exercised the fifth-year option in DE Corey Liuget's contract.
Apr 15, 11:53 PM San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (neck) continues his rehab from a neck injury, but his status is still uncertain. When the team begins voluntary workouts April 22, Floyd will be there to participate, a league source said Tuesday, April 15. His activity level will be more limited than his teammates, however.
Apr 09, 10:23 PM The San Diego Chargers waived NT Byron Jerideau Tuesday, April 8, leaving only NTs Kwame Geathers and Sean Lissemore as the only nose tackles on the roster.
Mar 31, 04:12 PM The New York Jets tried to sign San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown at the start of free agency but he decided to sign with the Chargers. Brown was considered the team's top target at running back.
Mar 20, 02:55 PM San Diego Chargers general manager Tom Telesco said that RB Ryan Mathews remains the team's every-down back despite the signing of RB Donald Brown in free agency. We know Ryan is our bell cow, Telesco said. He's our No. 1 back. He had an excellent year last year. And we all know what Danny Woodhead can do in his role. We saw that for 16 games last year. And we think Donald can come in and add to that, too, and give us some different options. And a different style, too. The more weapons we can have for Philip Rivers, the better.

Fantasy Impact: Brown is a good insurance policy for the oft-injured Mathews.
Mar 17, 03:23 PM The San Diego Chargers have re-signed free-agent WR Seyi Ajirotutu to a one-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.
