Los Angeles Chargers offseason wish list for fantasy - Walton Spurlin
The time is now for the Chargers to address their quarterback of the future needs. I’m no draft expert, but selecting Lamar Jackson out of Louisville at 17th seems like a great fit if he slides that far. The youngster can groom behind Rivers for a year or two and has the potential to be a fantasy star with the offensive weapons Los Angeles boasts.

2018 Free Agency Preview: Los Angeles Chargers - Alejandro Chavez
If Jenkins isn’t ready for more playing time, and the Chargers aren’t willing to bring back a solid player in Boston, they should bat for the fences and bring in the highest-graded safety in the free agent class. Joyner posted a coverage grade (92.2) that tied Harrison Smith for the best among safeties and a run-defense grade (80.7) that was markedly better than Boston’s 43.4 grade.

Time for Chargers to address defense in this year's draft - Eric Williams
A handful of game-changing defensive playmakers will be available in the first round this year, including Virginia Tech’s Tremaine Edmunds, Florida State safety Derwin James, Washington defensive tackle Vita Vea and Alabama defensive tackle Da'Ron Payne, according to ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper’s big board.

Back to school: Chargers' Austin Ekeler returns to college to get his degree - Eric Williams
Ekeler, 22, is four classes away from graduating with a business degree with an emphasis in energy management. He is taking classes in Oil and Gas Law and Prospects Economics of Oil and Gas, along with two elective classes, to finish out his college degree. Ekeler said he would like to take part in graduation ceremonies in May if the Chargers' offseason schedule doesn't conflict.

Chargers CB Desmond King was incredible in his rookie campaign - Gavino Borquez
The former Hawkeye is versatile, decisive and has good instincts, finishing his rookie season with 76 tackles (66 solo), one interception, five pass defensed and four sacks.

5 free agent linebackers Chargers should consider - Gavino Borquez
Bradham, 28, isn’t the youngest linebacker set to hit the open market, but he is the most versatile and consistent, and would likely come on as a placement for LB Hayes Pullard or Korey Toomer. Over his two-year stint in Philadelphia, he has helped turn that defense into an elite unit that was able to defeat the Patriots in Super Bowl LII.
