NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at New York Jets Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

10 to avoid in the first 5 rounds of fantasy drafts - Mike Castiglione
However, last year’s ceiling as the RB5 (PPR) feels like a best-case scenario for Gordon, who ranked outside the top-20 RBs with 0.47 fantasy points per opportunity. With a late-first-round pick, consider instead a potential top-five WR like Michael Thomas, followed by pass-catching RBs such as Dalvin Cook and Jerick McKinnon in the following rounds.

AFC West Roundup: Arrivals, Departures on Defense - Chris Hayre
Other notable free-agent additions to Oakland’s defense include linebacker Tahir Whitehead and safety Marcus Gilchrist. Whitehead, who spent six seasons with the Detroit Lions, had 110 tackles in 2017. Gilchrist was drafted by the Chargers in 2011 and spent four seasons with the team. He started 13 games last year for the Houston Texans.

Los Angeles Chargers: Who will win the team's fullback job? - Travis Wakeman
At 6’0 and 257 pounds, Manzo-Lewis has a great build and as a result, packs a punch as a blocker. Though Watt has sufficed as a blocker, Manzo-Lewis might be an even better option in that regard. One area where he is definitely a better option is as a receiver.

3 players with the most to prove - Sebastian Orellana
Williams has a lot to prove due to his status as a first-round pick and a very impressive collegiate resume. If he can’t compete on the Chargers, chances are he won’t be able to compete anywhere else and will have a short and forgettable NFL career.
