The Chargers DST played well in 2012, and they will look to build off that performance this season. The Chargers were a top-10 Fantasy DST last year with 38 sacks, 14 fumble recoveries, nine defensive touchdowns and 14 interceptions. While the overall stats were good, part of the reason for the success was an easy schedule. The Chargers had 10 games with double digits in Fantasy points in a standard league but three games with five points or less. They also had three huge games against the Chiefs (twice) and Jets with at least 24 Fantasy points in each contest. We expect the Chargers DST to continue to play well this season, and they are worth drafting with a late-round pick as your starting option. (Updated 4/26/13)
