NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at Dallas Cowboys Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Recapping the Week: DE Isaac Rochell the Leader of Notre Dame West - Chris Hayre
"Ike has gotten better every single year,” Head Coach Anthony Lynn said. “He's changed his body. His work ethic is outstanding. He's turned into a pro. I look for him to take the next step this year, but he has gotten better every single year. That's what you want in your young athletes."

"I have the ability to run around and make plays outside of structure, try to be a good athlete and make different plays," Stick said. "I feel like I can do a little bit of everything. Really, I'm just excited to be in that quarterback room and get an opportunity to learn."

Hunter Henry: Ready to Breakout Again? - Neil Dutton
Without scoring a touchdown a week, he may struggle to command a place at the very top of the fantasy TE pool, let alone challenge the Big Three. But his 2017 performance (10.6 fantasy points per game) would have been good for a place inside the top eight last season. I believe his total value lies somewhere between his present best ball ADP and our rankings here at RotoViz. He could be this year’s Eric Ebron. Or he could be this year’s Hunter Henry. It will be fun to see which.

Dynasty WR Bust Candidates (2019 Fantasy Football) - Chuck Gioffre
Williams’ current ranking and ADP are 20 spots higher in dynasty drafts than in 2018. A steep price increase for a receiver that averaged just four targets per game. However, Williams converted 23% of his receptions into touchdowns last year for 10 total receiving touchdowns, which has inflated his price. As I mentioned previously, touchdowns aren’t reliable year to year and Hunter Henry is expected to be back and command heavy targets. Mike Williams has been basically been used as a TE and only accumulated 85 total yards after the catch last year, ranking 103rd among receivers according to PlayerProfiler.com. Williams’ unstainable TD rate and increased target competition make him an ideal bust candidate heading into 2019.

Chargers could potentially have feel-good story of the year in Jerimiah Spicer - Travis Wakeman
Spicer grew up in Los Angeles, but he had to do so on the streets during his teenage years. His mom passed away while pregnant with his sister, a girl named Miracle because of the fact that she survived. His father wasn’t in the picture and he was homeless, living on Skid Row.
