Chase McLaughlin Makes One Field Goal In Loss

Los Angeles Chargers backup kicker Chase McLaughlin did about as well as could be expected on Sunday as he was able to knock through one of the two field goal tries he was given. His other attempt glanced off the left upright, skittering across the end zone. McLaughlin shouldn't be expected to have much of... Read More

Mike Williams Catches Five Passes In Loss

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams was Philip Rivers' favorite target on Sunday night, but he was only able to haul in half the throws. Rivers struggled mightily from the pocket, but Williams worked well as an outlet while No. 1 wideout Keenan Allen seemed to be focused on by the defense. Williams finished... Read More

Hunter Henry Dominates In Return

Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry was everything people thought he would be and more. Henry was basically the only bright spot for the Chargers on Sunday night as he snagged eight of the nine passes sent in his direction and tallied 100 yards and two touchdowns.

Austin Ekeler Barely Plays Against Pittsburgh

Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Ekeler was already expected to see a drop in usage due to the full return of Melvin Gordon, but he was further buried when the team was suddenly down 14 points before the end of the first quarter. While Ekeler has the ability to be a star, and he... Read More

Melvin Gordon Shut Down By Steelers

Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon was a bit of an afterthought in Sunday's game against the Steelers. He was likely a major part of the original gameplan, but before the offense could run their 11th play from scrimmage, they had already turned the ball over twice and were down 14 points. At that...

Philip Rivers Turns It Over Three Times

Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers played poorly on Sunday as the Chargers lost to the Steelers. Rivers was responsible for turnovers on back-to-back drives in the first quarter when he overthrew Melvin Gordon on a backwards pass that was recovered and returned for a touchdown and had a tipped pass intercepted four plays later....

Seattle Seahawks kicker Jason Myers had an exciting day on Sunday as he put the team in a bit of a tough spot.

Tedric Thompson Does It Again

Seattle Seahawks safety Tedric Thompson must practice sprawling tip drills at home.

Tyler Lockett Hauls In Five Passes In Win

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett continues to be the pride of possession receivers. Lockett brought in all five passes sent his way in Week 6, tallying 75 yards. Lockett has now caught 24 of 27 passes thrown to him this year, and he deserves quite a bit of credit for Russell Wilson's ridiculous efficiency... Read More

D.K. Metcalf Catches Another Big Gainer

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf hauled in another pass longer than 25 yards when he brought in a 30-yarder on the team's first drive of the day.

C.J. Prosise Coughs It Up

Seattle Seahawks running back C.J. Prosise stepped in as the change-of-pace back for Chris Carson on Sunday when Rashaad Penny couldn't go, but he only got to touch the ball four times. Given such limited opportunities, he'd want them to count, but unfortunately, it bit him this week. Prosise was called on to power forward... Read More

Chris Carson Tops 100 Yards For Third Straight Game

Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson carried the ball 24 times on Sunday, tallying 124 yards and a touchdown.

Will Dissly Could Have A Massive Week

Seattle Seahawks tight end Will Dissly was drafted to block, and it turned out he could catch. He's now been fully integrated into Seattle's offense, and this week could be huge for him. Dissly specializes in working the middle of the field, and Cleveland has really struggled to defend that area. Last time he faced... Read More

D.K. Metcalf Is The Ultimate Home Run Threat

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf is the epitome of the deep threat that can strike at any time. Metcalf caught a wide-open pass off a busted coverage last week to score his second touchdown of the season, and at 22.3 yards per reception, Metcalf easily leads the league in the category. The problem is... Read More

Tyler Lockett Leads League In Catch Rate

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett made his owners proud against the Rams when he made a phenomenal toe-tapping catch in the back corner of the end zone last week, but otherwise, he was pretty quiet once again.

Chris Carson Should See Plenty Of Action

Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson has no injury designation for Sunday's game against the Browns, and head coach Pete Carroll told reporters that he's fine. On top of that, Carson will likely be one of the central pieces of Seattle's offense once again. Carson proved critical last week against the Rams, and with Cleveland... Read More

Russell Wilson Looks To Continue Dominance

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson will take the field on Sunday as the top QB in the fantasy game, and he'll be looking to do whatever it takes to bring home another win.

Chase McLaughlin Expected To Start Again

Los Angeles Chargers kicker Chase McLaughlin is expected to draw the start once again in Week 6 as kicker Michael Badgley is doubtful due to his groin issue.

Keenan Allen Looks To Repeat 2018

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen will be looking to recreate the magic from last season when he faces the Steelers this weekend. Allen demolished Pittsburgh's secondary last year when he tallied 14 catches for 148 yards and a touchdown, and he'll hope to do similar damage this year. Obviously, there's risk associated with...

Mike Williams Is A Risky Choice

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams is a real hit-or-miss play this week, and there are solid arguments to be made for both sides. Williams could completely bust this week because LA is facing a Steelers Defense that has been very stingy over the last four weeks, and Williams is usually a ways down... Read More

Austin Ekeler Should Get Plenty More Chances

Los Angeles Chargers running back/pass-catching extraordinaire Austin Ekeler will likely see a whole lot of opportunities again this week. Ekeler caught a whopping 15 passes last week against the Broncos, and with LA squaring off against a hard-nosed Pittsburgh defense, expect Philip Rivers to use Ekeler as an easy out once again. That said, there... Read More

Melvin Gordon Faces A Tough Task

Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon will get his second shot at game speed on Sunday, but he'll have his hands full against a Pittsburgh defense that has been on fire. The deck is stacked against him as Gordon looked rusty in his first appearance, his offensive line is bad and injured, and the... Read More

Philip Rivers Facing A Hot Defense

Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers is set to square off against a Steelers Defense that has been on point recently. While Pittsburgh is 1-4, they've allowed just 7.54 fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks in the last two weeks, including a match-up with Lamar Jackson. Rivers is obviously a well-versed veteran with an abundance of... Read More

Chase McLaughlin Makes A Pair Of FGs

Los Angeles Chargers kicker Chase McLaughlin did pretty well in his first action with the team on Sunday. McLaughlin got off to a rough start when his first field goal attempt as a Charger was tipped at the line of scrimmage and fell well short of the uprights, but he composed himself and knocked two...
