Five Fun Facts: Scott Quessenberry - Hayley Elwood
When Scott Quessenberry was drafted by the Bolts, he became the second member of his family to play in the NFL. His brother, David, plays for the Texans. “It’s really cool, and it’s crazy because Derek (Watt) and I are together and David and J.J. (Watt) are together. It’s great to be able to talk about everything that goes on in the league like different policies and rule changes. So to have somebody in my family to talk to is pretty sweet.”

RB leaders in fantasy points per touch - Tyler Loechner

NFL's best and worst offensive arsenals: 32-1 weapons ranking - Bill Barnwell
The obvious star is Keenan Allen, who has averaged 87.2 receiving yards per game over the past three years, which is fourth in the league over that time frame. The problem is that the former Cal star also has missed 23 games over that stretch with various injuries, and he just completed his first full 16-game season after five years in the NFL. Melvin Gordon also finished his first full season in three years, and while he has been a productive fantasy back, he has yet to average 4.0 yards per carry once as a pro.

Rivers is more than the AFC West's senior statesman under center -- the No. 4 overall pick of the 2004 draft also became the ninth member of the NFL's 50,000-yard passing club last season. Maturing weapons such as receiver Keenan Allen and running back Melvin Gordon will make Rivers, who turns 37 in December, only more dangerous.
