TD makes Chargers DST's day


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/21/2014) The Chargers didn't have a standout defensive performance Week 16 at San Francisco, allowing 35 points on 447 yards, but their defense was still instrumental in their 38-35 victory. Ricardo Mathews stripped quarterback Colin Kaepernick of the football late in the third quarter, and Corey Liuget recovered it in the end zone for a touchdown.

It was one of two sacks and three fumble recoveries for the Chargers on the day. Their DST has contributed a touchdown in three of the last five weeks.

Though the touchdowns have made the Chargers DST a productive Fantasy unit in recent weeks, it's been giving up plenty of points and yardage. You still wouldn't want to trust in it outside of an especially favorable matchup, which it doesn't have Week 17 at Kansas City.


Chargers defense can't do enough in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) The Chargers defense failed to provide much resistance in a 22-10 loss to the Broncos in Week 15.

The Chargers held up Ok in the game, holding the Broncos to just 337 yards of total offense, mostly by shutting the running game down. However, they also failed to make any big plays, coming up with just one sack and no turnovers in the loss.

All things considered, this could have gone worse for the Chargers, who had zero Fantasy points in their Week 8 matchup with the Broncos. However, they came up with just 3 Sunday, so it wasn't that much better. They will look to bounce back in Week 16 against the 49ers, but are not a recommended Fantasy play for that game.  


TD the bright spot for Chargers DST


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2014) Considering they were facing one of the league's most prolific offenses, the Chargers weren't so bad defensively Week 14 against New England, giving up 23 points on 397 yards. But if not for defensive back Darrell Stuckey's fumble recovery return for a touchdown in the second quarter, it wouldn't have amounted to much for their DST in Fantasy.

The Chargers also had one interception and one sack and have been especially lacking in the latter lately, recording just four in their last six games. Their DST has scored 13-plus Fantasy points, though, three of the last four weeks.

Though they survived the Patriots, they're really pushing their luck going against the Broncos the following week, so don't rush to add the Chargers DST off waivers in Fantasy.


Chargers' Butler skips practice with quad issue, questionable for Sunday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2014) Chargers linebacker Donald Butler was a late addition to the injury report after skipping Friday's practice with a quad injury. The team has officially ruled him as questionable for Sunday's game against New England.

Chargers defense provides little resistance


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) The Chargers defense had trouble slowing the Ravens' offense down in Week 13, a 34-33 win.

The Chargers limited the Ravens to 350 yards of total offense and allowed just three touchdowns in seven red zone trips, so this could have been even worse. However, they held them to four field goals in the game, while failing to record a single  turnover and sacking Joe Flacco just once.

The Chargers DST unit ended the game with zero Fantasy points, their third time in five games failing to record a single point. They could struggle yet again in Week 14 as well, with the Patriots on the schedule. 


Chargers S Jahleel Addae gets the thumbs-up for Week 13


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Chargers safety Jahleel Addae was designated as active for Sunday's clash against the Ravens in Week 13. It will be the first time he's back on the field since suffering a concussion vs. Broncos on Oct. 23, which caused him to miss miss three games.

Chargers strong against poor offense again


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/24/2014) One week after limiting the hapless Raiders to six points on 233 yards, the Chargers allowed 24 points and 317 yards to the slightly less hapless Rams in Week 12 -- an OK performance, but nothing especially noteworthy in Fantasy. They made up for it with an abundance of big plays, though, most notably a touchdown by Andrew Gachkar on a fumble recovery in the third quarter. They also had two interceptions and one sack.

In standard CBSSports.com leagues, the Chargers DST has a combined 31 points over its last two games after scoring a combined seven over its previous four. Clearly, it excels with favorable matchups, but it doesn't have those coming up, going against the Ravens, Patriots and Broncos over the next three weeks.


Raiders help Chargers snap out of defensive slump


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2014) The Chargers defense entered Week 11 against the Raiders riding a bad slump, but snapped out of it in a 13-6 win.

The Raiders offense managed just 233 yards in the game, including a paltry 71 on the ground, as the Chargers dominated things from the start. The Chargers allowed two field goals in the game, while forcing one turnover and recording a pair of sacks of rookie quarterback Derek Carr.

The Chargers DST unit managed 16 Fantasy points in Sunday's game, after having just 7 in their previous four games combined. Their next matchup could yield positive results as well, with the Rams on the schedule in Week 12. 


Chargers announce several defensive roster moves Saturday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/15/2014) The Chargers announced several roster moves on Saturday.

The team added linebacker Melvin Ingram to the 53-man active roster, as expected. Ingram missed the first seven games of the season because of a hip injury. Rookie cornerback Jason Verrett was placed on the season-ending injured reserve list with a shoulder injury. Verrett will undergo surgery to repair his left labrum, which was torn in three different places, according to U-T San Diego.

Meanwhile, in corresponding moves, the team waived outside linebacker Cordarro Law and promoted safety Adrian Phillips from the practice squad.


Chargers defense falters again


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2014) The Chargers defense struggled yet again Sunday, in a 37-0 loss to the Dolphins in Week 9.

The Dolphins offense moved the ball at will against the Chargers, racking up 441 yards of total offense and jumping out to a 20-0 lead at halftime. They ultimately made seven trips to the red zone and could have come away with an even more lopsided score, but the Dolphins settled for field goals on four of those seven trips. The Chargers DST unit failed to record a single turnover or sack in the loss.

The Chargers DST racked up eight or more Fantasy points in each of the first five games of the season, but has been a disaster recently. They head into the Week 10 bye with just seven total Fantasy points over the last four games. 


Chargers safety Addae still not cleared after concussion


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/31/2014) Chargers safety Jahleel Addae has yet to be medically cleared from a concussion. He was unable to practice on Friday and is not expected to play Sunday afternoon against the Dolphins, according to U-T San Diego.

Addae sustained the injury Week 8 against the Broncos on Oct. 23. He has 23 combined tackles and one sack on the season.


Chargers part ways with CB Richard Marshall


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2014) After a string of rough games against the Chiefs and the Broncos, the Chargers have parted ways with cornerback Richard Marshall, according to Pro Football Talk on Monday. Marshall registered 24 combined tackles over eight games.

NFLPA to review how Chargers handled Addae's concussion


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/25/2014) The NFL Players Association is formally reviewing the handling of Chargers safety Jahleel Addae's concussion, according to CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora on Saturday.

Addae kept playing despite taking a couple brutal shots to the neck and head area, and even came up wobbling in one instance, in Week 8 against the Broncos. The team initially called his injury a stinger on Thursday and he wasn't diagnosed with a concussion until Friday.


Chargers CB Verrett to 'miss some time' with shoulder issue


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) Chargers cornerback Jason Verrett is expected to "miss some time" with a shoulder injury, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network on Friday. Verrett suffered the injury Week 8 at Denver had his arm in a sling following the game. He is set to undergo further exams Friday.

Verrett has one interception and 19 combined tackles on the season.


Flowers, Brown, Mathews among Chargers to sit out Week 8


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) The Chargers released their Week 8 injury report for Thursday's game against the Broncos, and running back Donald Brown (concussion), running back Ryan Mathews (knee) and cornerback Brandon Flowers (concussion) were all ruled out. Linebacker Manti Te'o was also ruled out due to a foot injury.

The team also listed linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu (hamstring) as doubtful, and cornerback Jason Verrett (shoulder) and cornerback Steve Williams (groin) as questionable. Four players were listed as probable -- linebacker Kavell Conner (ankle), tackle D.J. Fluker (ankle), linebacker Dwight Freeney (probable) and offensive lineman Rich Ohrnberger (back).


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.
