3 QBs who shouldn't be your fantasy starter - Brandon Marianne Lee (subscription)
Rivers is now 34, which is not exactly prime age for a quarterback to improve on a two-year (or longer, depending on how you parse things) track record. Offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt is back, and Rivers had his career-best numbers under his tutelage in 2013, but there needs to be more than that to justify a fantasy pick as the 10th QB in the draft.

Four Chargers players facing make or break seasons - Travis Wakeman
Limited by injuries much of last season, Dunlap was able to play in only seven games in 2015. As a result, Rivers was constantly harassed and pressured into making throws way before he wanted to. In 2016, Dunlap will have to prove he can stay on the field.

C Matt Slauson brings toughness, grit to San Diego Chargers' O-line - Eric Williams
Slauson actually was recruited by fellow Nebraska native Danny Woodhead to join the Chargers. The two already knew each other from when Slauson played at Nebraska and Woodhead played at small school Chadron state in North Platte, Neb.

San Diego Chargers: Jason Verrett's Greatness - Noah Goldstein
A cornerback who runs a 4.38 40-yard dash and has a 40 inch vertical while playing lockdown defense at a division one school usually warrants at least a top-15 overall pick; however, Verrett is generously 5’10″ and 190 pounds, listings that caused many scouts to question whether or not the TCU product was capable of shutting down tall, physical receivers.

What are the Most Predictable Year-to-Year Stats for Wide Receivers? - TJ Hernandez
Wide receiver production, in both real football and fantasy, hinges on targets. Those targets are the number that we can most confidently look to from a receiver’s previous season when trying to project his upcoming year. Although per-game receptions, yards, and fantasy points have moderate year-to-year correlations, targets have a year-to-year correlation that is on the brink of being considered statistically strong.[1]
