Brandon Flowers on Megatron, Bolts name Captains, Corey Liuget on actions, not words - Marty Caswel (video)
The Bolts also named their official team captains. Philip Rivers, Eric Weddle and Darrell Stuckey all return as captains. Antonio Gates, who is suspended through the first four games was named a captain and his role will be split by Malcom Floyd and King Dunlap during the first four weeks. Corey Liuget was named a first-time captain and he discussed why the Chargers need to do less talking and let their actions speak for them.

If the line improves the way it has the potential to, this offense could be fantastic. Keenan Allen and Malcom Floyd should have bounce-back seasons, while rookie Melvin Gordon joins a solid backfield of Danny Woodhead and Branden Oliver.

Fantasy Football Power Rankings No. 9 – San Diego Chargers - Tyler Loechner (premium)
The San Diego Chargers are one of the deepest teams when it comes to what they offer fantasy football owners, and as such, they rank No. 9 on the 2015 fantasy power rankings. The Chargers were the 12th most-valuable team from a fantasy perspective in 2014, but they are expected to break into the top 10 in 2015.

"Dean Spanos took a risk on me," McCoy said. "So there’s a first time for everybody. If you don’t get a chance, how is anybody going to know? We’re doing what we think is best for our football team."

Any Given Sunday: A Decade of Upsets - Sterling Xie
On pure volume, no one tops the San Diego Chargers, who have made a league-high 18 AGS appearances. Coincidentally, the Bolts are halfway between the undefeated Browns and winless Jaguars, having gone 9-9 in their features. However, that puts San Diego behind the Miami Dolphins, Arizona Cardinals and Oakland Raiders for most total wins, as all three have won 11 times in AGS features. Basically, any Raiders win counts as AGS-worthy. Nearly a quarter of Oakland's 47 wins the past 10 seasons have been featured in AGS, including two of the team's three 2014 victories.
