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...

Desmond King Returns Punt For TD

Los Angeles Chargers cornerback Desmond King provided one of the only bright spots for Chargers fans on Sunday afternoon. At the end of the third quarter, King hauled a Broncos punt through traffic around his own 40-yard line and broke free. He roasted a pair of Broncos in a foot race and crossed the goal... Read More

Keenan Allen Shut Down By Denver

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen was completely held in check by the Denver Broncos Defense on Sunday. Allen tallied four catches for just 18 yards, and 17 yards of that came on his first two catches of the game. It was clear that Denver made a point of removing Allen from the game,... Read More

Mike Williams Catches Six Passes Against Broncos

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams got a boost in his production on Sunday since Keenan Allen was blanketed throughout the day, and he was able to haul in six passes in the loss. Unfortunately, that was less than half the times he was targeted, but it was still good for 74 yards receiving.... Read More

Austin Ekeler Racks Up 15 Catches

Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Ekeler was pushed aside for Melvin Gordon this week, but after Gordon proved to be ineffective on the ground, the team turned back to Ekeler to keep them in the game. He proved up to the task. While Ekeler only carried the ball three times for seven yards on... Read More

Melvin Gordon Looked Rusty In First Game Back

Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon got his first crack on Sunday, and he certainly looked like he hadn't played any football in months. Gordon carried the ball 12 times for just 31 yards, and he regularly struggled to make any headway through the line. The coaching staff and teammates seemed excited about Gordon's... Read More

Philip Rivers Throws Two INTs Against Denver

Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has really struggled against the Broncos over the last two seasons. For the third straight game against Denver, Rivers threw a pair of interceptions. The Chargers lost, and poor play by Rivers played a pretty big role in that. Rivers averaged just 4.4 yards per attempt in the game,... Read More

Joey Bosa Looks To Pad Sack Total

Los Angeles Chargers defensive lineman Joey Bosa was able to land half a sack last week, but he'll look to add to his total against Joe Flacco and the Broncos this weekend. The Broncos have given up 11 sacks so far this year, including an atrocious performance against the Packers two weeks ago where Flacco... Read More

Keenan Allen Facing A Tough Week

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen was leading the league in receiving yards after four weeks, but he's got a tough game in Week 5. Allen will be squaring off against the Denver Broncos and top cornerback Chris Harris Jr. Historically, Allen has struggled against Denver, and he only averaged 76 yards receiving in... Read More

Justin Jackson Doubtful For Sunday

Los Angeles Chargers running back Justin Jackson is doubtful due to his lingering calf injury. While Jackson is officially listed as doubtful, he hasn't practiced all week, and the team is welcoming back Melvin Gordon after his absence, so there's no real pressure to get Jackson out on the field. Even if he were to... Read More

Troymaine Pope Falls Out Of Rotation

A week after he got 10 carries against the Dolphins, Los Angeles Chargers running back Troymaine Pope is likely bound for the bench. The return of Melvin Gordon pushes Pope into the No. 3 slot for this week's game against the Broncos, and the team is expected to balance carries between Austin Ekeler and Gordon... Read More

Philip Rivers May Underperform In Week 5

Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers may not put up huge numbers in Week 5, but it's probably not going to be because of his play. It will likely be more related to Denver's weakness to the run. So far, Denver's defense has been one of the worst in the league against the run, and... Read More

Jason Myers Goes 1-For-2 On Field Goals

Seattle Seahawks kicker Jason Myers got his first cracks from 40-plus yards on Thursday, and he missed his first one. A 48-yarder got pushed a little bit to the right just before halftime. Myers had been called in to kick in hopes that the team could go up two scores on LA, but it was... Read More

Jadeveon Clowney, Tedric Thompson Come Up Huge

A week after he snagged an interception and took it to the house, Seattle Seahawks defensive end Jadeveon Clowney came up big again. This time, he stripped and recovered a fumble from LA running back Todd Gurley, bailing Seattle out when it looked like the Rams were about to hang another touchdown on them. It... Read More

David Moore Slips In For A Touchdown

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver David Moore finally got in on the action on Thursday night as he juked his way into the end zone on a screen play. It was only his third catch of the season, and it seemed relatively pedestrian compared to the acrobatic grabs that garnered headlines for him last year. At... Read More

Jaron Brown Loses Costly Fumble

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Jaron Brown got stripped on an ugly play early in Thursday's game, but that didn't keep quarterback Russell Wilson from throwing to him more throughout the rest of the contest. Brown ended up being targeted four times and totaled 36 yards on two catches, though the fumble will certainly take center... Read More

Will Dissly Tacks On 81 Yards

Seattle Seahawks tight end Will Dissly added another 81 yards to his season total on Thursday night against the Rams, and he played a central role in a highlight that will likely accompany Russell Wilson for years. Dissly was on the receiving end of a casual 31-yard rainbow from Wilson that was dropped over Dissly's... Read More

Rashaad Penny Records Six Carries

Seattle Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny returned to action on Thursday night, and he spelled Chris Carson on a fairly regular basis. Penny recorded six carries compared to Carson's 27, but he also caught a pair of passes out of the backfield and was good enough to draw attention when he was in the game.... Read More

Chris Carson Tops 100 Yards, Catches TD

Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson was rolling again on Thursday, racking up 118 yards on 27 carries in the team's win over LA.

D.K. Metcalf Catches Another TD Bomb

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf got back on his horse and turned a footrace into an easy score in Thursday's win over the Rams. Metcalf got free off the back of a play-action setup and hauled in a 40-yard bomb from quarterback Russell Wilson in the second quarter. Metcalf's speed and the play design... Read More

Tyler Lockett Makes Incredible TD Catch

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett made an otherworldly touchdown catch at the end of the first quarter of Thursday's game. Lockett's 13-yard grab was actually more like a 30-yard heave into the very back corner of the end zone. What looked like a ball that was being thrown away due to pressure in the... Read More

Russell Wilson Playing Into MVP Conversation

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson put on a phenomenal show on Thursday night as he threw four touchdown passes and zero interceptions in Seattle's defeat of the Rams. Wilson has now thrown for 12 touchdowns and zero interceptions this season, and he's recorded a ridiculous 126.5 passer rating through the first five games of the... Read More

Mychal Kendricks Will Need Help

Seattle Seahawks linebacker Mychal Kendricks stepped up against the Cardinals and knocked out a pair of sacks to help Seattle win the game on Sunday.

D.K. Metcalf Tries To Bounce Back

After putting up big catches in every one of his first three games in the NFL, Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf was missing for the Arizona game. He actually got a couple chances for touchdowns, but he dropped one of the passes and was barely overthrown on another. Metcalf has proved to be an... Read More

Tyler Lockett Could Go Big In Week 5

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett is facing a mixed bag this week in Seattle. LA just got shellacked at home by a worse QB than Seattle's, and they gave up four receiving touchdowns in the process. However, even with that loss, the Rams are still considered an above average defense against the pass. Even... Read More

Will Dissly Should Still Be A Red-Zone Target

Seattle Seahawks tight end Will Dissly came through against a weak Cardinals crew that struggles against opposing tight ends, but he'll have a bit of a tougher matchup on Thursday. That said, there is still potential. LA has been one of the stingiest teams in the league overall against opposing tight ends, but they have... Read More
