2014 DRAFT GUIDE

San Diego Chargers
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Chargers got back to their winning ways last season and should have another solid team this year. Remember, they had a ton of injuries last year but still managed to go 9-7 and make the playoffs. They are healthy for the start of this year and could improve on last year. The defense is getting better and better, and the offense remains potent with a lot of solid offensive weapons. The Chargers will be a tough weekly opponent that should challenge for a playoff spot once again.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Ladarius Green is ready to take over the starting duties from Antonio Gates at tight end. Green might split work with Gates this season but should get more playing time than ever before. And the Chargers will run a lot of two tight-end sets to get Green heavily involved in the passing game. He is going to get a lot of targets this season. Green has big-play potential at tight end and is a matchup nightmare for the opposition. He is ready to take his game to a new level.
FANTASY DUD
With Green emerging at tight end, Antonio Gates is on his way out. He looked a step slow last season and has battled a ton of injuries through the year. You have to wonder how much Gates has left in the tank. Gates will play some this season and could even open the year as the starter but expect Green to take plenty of work from Gates and likely the starter's job at some point this season. Gates is going to see his numbers take another dip this season. He is trending the wrong way for fantasy teams.
