Chargers players looking for a new contract in 2020 - Tyler Schoon
Why keep him: Cantrell was an offseason standout last year, drawing the praise of Anthony Lynn for his improvement. There is currently no strong third wide receiver option behind Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, and if he plays well this year and makes a strong impression, it’s worth bringing him back to develop further.

NFL rookies who can steal time away from veterans in 2019 - Connor Price
No one played more defensive snaps for the Chargers in the last two seasons than Jahleel Addae, but Los Angeles cut ties with the six-year veteran a month before the draft. Adrian Phillips (66.0) and Rayshawn Jenkins (63.1) appeared to be the next men up in the Chargers secondary, but General Manager Tom Telesco decided to spend a second-round pick on Delaware safety Nasir Adderley.

The best quarterback to receiver tandems in the NFL for 2019 - Ben Cooper
Hunter Henry and Philip Rivers aren’t exactly the first two who come to mind when thinking of reliable duos — partially because Henry missed all of 2018 with a torn ACL — but here they are at the top of the list. Since 2006, Henry and Rivers are the only duo (not including running backs) who have 100 or more targets together with no interceptions and more than 10 touchdowns. That’s a mouthful, but it’s an exceptional feat — and Henry will be back on the field in 2019, meaning the two will get to build upon what is already proving to be one of the most reliable connections in recent years.

2019 Best-Ball Players to Avoid (MFL10 and DRAFT) - Mike Tagliere
Here’s the example of a player who’s top-five at his position in real-life, but not when it comes to fantasy. You’ve probably heard it a million times – Rivers has been a top-14 quarterback in 11-of-13 seasons, so you’re drafting him at his floor if he’s being taken as the QB14. Well, no. Rivers is a very consistent quarterback, but he’s not going to help lead your best-ball team to a championship. There was just one game in 2018 where he totaled more than 24 fantasy points, and it’s because his defense has continually gotten better. He also doesn’t offer anything rushing, so unless his defense takes a step back in 2019, he’s not going to have much of a chance to deliver much better numbers in 2019.

After the departure of Emanuel, Nwosu is now the starting OTTO going into the 2019 season, and he should see the field quite a bit. 2019 sixth-round selection Emeke Egbule will likely serve as his backup.
