Chargers defense struggle again in losing effort


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) The Chargers defense couldn't get off the field Sunday, in a 23-20 loss to the Chiefs in Week 7.

The Chiefs held the ball for 39 minutes Sunday, which makes the Chargers' performance better than it appears. The Chiefs racked up 365 yards of total offense in the game while the Chargers failed to record a single turnover. Quarterback Alex Smith was sacked three times in the loss.

The Chargers DST unit has been solid for most of the season, but is now riding its worst two-game stretch yet. They head into Week 8 against the Broncos averaging 10.1 Fantasy points per game, but should not be relied on in any Fantasy formats. 


Unlikely foe trips up Chargers


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/13/2014) The Chargers DST had been one of the most consistent units in Fantasy heading into Week 6, but that's when it ran into the Raiders, who with Derek Carr back under center and Andre Holmes finally getting extensive playing time, suddenly became explosive on offense, piling up 28 points on 396 yards. The Chargers had allowed just 12.6 points per game prior to this one.

They also went without a sack for the first time, but they did record an interception. In standard CBSSports.com leagues, the Chargers DST finished with just two Fantasy points. It had averaged 12.8 in its first five games.

Clearly, it's still one of the top units in Fantasy even though it struggled at an unexpected time. It has a middle-of-the-road matchup Week 7 against Kansas City, but it's still a worthy start in leagues of 10 teams or more.


Chargers' Brandon Flowers aggravates groin injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Chargers defensive back Brandon Flowers appeared to have aggravated his nagging groin injury in Sunday's game at Oakland in Week 6.

Flowers sustained the injury with 8:29 remaining in the third quarter and was ruled questionable to return to the game. He registered two total tackles and two defended passes before leaving the game.


Chargers DST comes through again


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/6/2014) After handling the Jaguars and Bills the last two weeks, the Chargers DST took advantage of another favorable matchup in Week 5, pitching a shutout against the hapless Jets. They allowed only 151 yards.

The Chargers were a little short on big plays on that side of the ball, but probably just because the defense wasn't on the field enough. They still had two sacks, an interception and a fumble recovery.

Even against the Cardinals and Seahawks to begin the season, the Chargers defense has impressed, only once allowing as many as 20 points. With another favorable matchup Week 6 at Oakland, the Chargers DST should remain active in Fantasy.


Chargers release final Week 5 injury report


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) The Chargers listed three players as questionable to play in Week 5 on Friday's final injury report, including linebacker Dwight Freeney (knee), defensive tackle Corey Liuget (concussion) and tight end David Johnson (shoudler).

Freeney didn't practice Thursday but was able to work in limited fashion on Wednesday and Friday. Johnson and Liuget returned to a full practice Friday.

The Chargers listed five players as probable to face the Jets in Week 5, including tight end Ladarius Green (hamstring), cornerback Jason Verrett (hamstring) and linebackers Donald Butler (shoulder), Jarret Johnson (shoulder) and Cordarro Law (ankle).

The following players have been ruled out for Week 5 action: running back Ryan Mathews (knee), offensive lineman Rich Ohrnberger (back), cornerback Shareece Wright (knee) and linebackers Manti Te'o (foot), Jeremiah Attaochu (hamstring) and Reggie Walker (ankle).


Chargers make most of matchup


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/29/2014) The Chargers DST was a popular pickup heading into Week 4 if only because of its matchup against the Jaguars, who have allowed the most Fantasy points to DSTs this season. It made good on it, limiting the visiting team to 14 points on 319 yards.

The Chargers recorded three sacks and two interceptions, their first two of the season. They also recovered a fumble. They have yet to allow more than 21 points in a game this season, giving up an average of 15.8, but their shortage of big plays have kept them from having an elite Fantasy defense.

Still, you'll want to hold on to the Chargers DST for at least the next two weeks with the Jets and Raiders coming up.


Steelers, Dolphins, Chargers top streaming options in Week 4


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/23/2014) In his Week 4 waiver-wire column, Jamey Eisenberg tabs the Steelers, Dolphins and Chargers DST units as the best streaming options for Week 4.

The Steelers have a date with the Buccaneers coming up in Week 4, and that has been a good thing for other defenses this season. Opposing DST units are averaging 18.3 Fantasy points per game against the Bucs, including two games above 15 points.

The Dolphins travel to London to face the Raiders, who have yet to top 14 points on offense this season. Opposing DST units have scored 12 Fantasy points in each game against Oakland.

The Chargers are coming off a strong performance, as they racked up 13 Fantasy points against the Bills, on the strength of three sacks and a safety. They get the Jaguars in Week 4, who have allowed opposing defenses to rack up at least 15 Fantasy points in each game, for an average of 19.0. 


Chargers defense healthy for Week 3


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Chargers defensive backs Brandon Flowers (groin) and Jahleel Addae (hamstring), along with defensive lineman Corey Liuget (ankle) are active and in uniform for Week 3 against the Bills. 

Chargers DST turns in average performance Week 2


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) The Chargers DST turned in a decent performance Week 2 against the Seahawks.

San Diego was pretty fresh throughout the game, as Seattle's offense had the ball just 17:45 minutes. Despite the lack of possession, Seattle was still able to put 21 points on the board. The Chargers defensive line actually did a decent job creating pressure, but only came up with two sacks against Russell Wilson. Wilson was under pressure more often, but was able to use his legs to escape a number of times. The team forced two fumbles, recovering one. 

The Chargers will take on the Bills Week 3. 


Chargers list six from defense on injury report


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2014) The Chargers have six players from the defensive side of the ball on the injury report for Week 2 against the Seahawks, with two players already ruled out.

Defensive backs Chris Davis (ankle) and Jahleel Addae (hamstring) will both miss Sunday's game, after being forced to miss the entire week in practice.

Additionally, defensive back Brandon Flowers (groin) and linebacker Melvin Ingram (hamstring) are both questionable for the game, as they were both limited in practice. Defensive linemen Corey Liuget and Sean Lissemore are both probable with ankle injuries. 


Chargers DST shows promise


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/9/2014) The Chargers DST showed big-play potential in Monday's 18-17 loss at Arizona.

Linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu blocked a punt and had a blindside strip-sack of Philip Rivers, with linebacker Dwight Freeney recovering. Safety Marcus Gilchrist jarred the ball loose from running back Andre Ellington, with linebacker Donald Butler recovering. Attaochu and defensive end Corey Liuget each finished with one sack.

The Chargers DST plays the Seahawks in Week 2.

Chargers DST is bench fodder


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) The Chargers DST finished 29th last year while recording just 35 sacks and 17 turnovers. San Diego upgraded over the offseason, adding corner Brandon Flowers and spending three of its first four draft picks on defense.

But there's no reason to start this unit Monday night in Arizona. The Cardinals averaged 27.4 points over their final eight games last year as quarterback Carson Palmer got comfortable in Bruce Arians' offense.


Ricky Tjong-A-Tjoe carted off with knee injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) Chargers defensive lineman Ricky Tjong-A-Tjoe left Sunday's preseason game against the 49ers with a knee injury. He sustained the injury in the second half and was carted off. He was ruled out for the remainder of the game, per U-T San Diego.

Sean Lissemore exits exhibition game with ankle injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) Chargers defensive lineman Sean Lissemore was forced out of Friday's preseason game against the Seahawks with a right ankle injury, according to U-T San Diego. Lissemore sustained the injury in the opening series of the night and was ruled out for the rest of the game.

Chargers add depth with Victor Aiyewa


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) The Chargers added free agent linebacker Victor Aiyewa Saturday, the team announced.

Aiyewa appeared in five games with the Packers in 2013, registering four tackles. Aiyewa adds depth to the team's linebacking corps after Alvin Scioneaux was lost for the year with a knee injury.  


Alvin Scioneaux out for the season with torn ACL


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) Chargers head coach Mike McCoy told reporters that linebacker Alvin Scioneaux tore his ACL during Thursday's preseason game against the Cowboys. He is expected to miss the entire season, per U-T San Diego.

Greg Ducre, Alvin Scioneaux leave preseason opener with injuries


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) Chargers defensive back Greg Ducre and inside linebacker Alvin Scioneaux both left Thursday's preseason opener against the Cowboys with injuries, U-T San Diego reports. Ducre suffered a tough blow to the head in the final minutes of the game. Scioneaux left the game in the third quarter with a knee injury.

Chargers sign Brandon Flowers


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/24/2014) Cornerback Brandon Flowers has agreed to terms with the Chargers, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

Flowers visited the Chargers last week and drew interest from numerous teams after he was released by the Chiefs earlier this month. Flowers, originally selected by Kansas City in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft, made his first Pro Bowl last season but the Chiefs let him go in part because he of his $10.5 million salary-cap hit in 2014.

Flowers, 28, provides the Chargers with much-needed depth. The team reportedly signed him to a one-year deal, which is a low-cost move for them while allowing Flowers to prove he is worth another long-term, big-money contract next offseason.


Chargers draft Jeremiah Attaochu


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) With the No. 50 pick in the NFL Draft, the Chargers selected linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu from Georgia Tech.

The Chargers traded up with the Dolphins to make the pick, giving up pick No. 57 and No. 125 overall.

Attaochu is 6-foot-3, 252 pounds. He finished his career at Georgia Tech with 31.5 sacks, which is No. 1 in school history.

He will provide the Chargers with an outside rush presence and help the Chargers DST . Look for him to work in rotation with Dwight Freeney and Melvin Ingram


Chargers draft Jason Verrett at No. 25


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/8/2014) With the No. 25 pick in the NFL Draft, the Chargers selected cornerback Jason Verrett from TCU.

Verrett is 5-foot-10, 189 pounds. He was the co-Defensive Player of the Year in 2013, and he finished his collegiate career with nine interceptions.

Verrett has the chance to start right away for the Chargers, but he is most likely a slot corner. This was a need position for the Chargers, and he should help the Chargers DST in 2014.


Brandon Ghee joins Chargers for two years


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2014) The Chargers added some secondary depth via free agency Thursday, announcing the signing of defensive back Brandon Ghee to a two-year contract. Financial terms are not yet known for the 26-year-old's deal.

Ghee has had trouble staying healthy since being a third-round pick in 2010. He had appeared in just 23 games in four seasons, recording 17 tackles without an interceptions. 


Chargers bring Reggie Walker back


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2014) The Chargers re-signed linebacker Reggie Walker to a two-year contract Thursday, the team announced. Walker is coming off a season in which he finished with 36 tackles and three sacks in 16 games, including six starts. 

Jarret Johnson takes paycut to stay with Chargers


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2014) Chargers linebacker Jarret Johnson will take a pay cut to stay with the team next season, according to ESPN on Monday.

Johnson, 32, signed a four-year, $19 million deal in 2012 and missed five games with hamstring and hand injuries in 2013. The Chargers will save $1 million with the move.

Donald Butler staying with Chargers


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/28/2014) The Chargers and linebacker Donald Butler have agreed to a new contract, according to Butler's official Twitter feed.

Butler, 25, wrote on Friday "feeling blessed" and the "deal is done." He was scheduled to be a free agent this offseason. 

Butler had 84 tackles with just a half-sack and one interception in 13 games last year. His sack total was the lowest of his career.


Chargers snatch Cordarro Law from CFL


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2/14/2014) The Chargers made a low-risk signing they hope will bring some high upside Friday, as U-T San Diego reports the team agreed to terms on a reserve/future contract with linebacker Cordarro Law from the Canadian Football League.

Law spent the 2013 season with the Calgary Stampeders, finishing with 14 sacks to finish third in the league. He was undrafted out of Southern Mississippi in 2012, and was cut after training camp with the Seahawks.

According to the report, Law worked out for the Chargers last month along with two other CFL players. He will join the team in San Diego in April for voluntary workouts.
