NFL: AFC Wild Card-Los Angeles Chargers at Baltimore Ravens Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

5 Middle-Round Values for a Fantasy League Championship Contender - Larry Weinhauer
Williams is currently being drafted in the early sixth round, but not in my leagues — I will be all over Williams a full round earlier! I have Williams ranked as a WR2 and would love him as my WR3, which looking at his ADP is very possible.

Bounce-Back TEs - Zachary Hanshew
Henry’s not exactly a bounce-back candidate since he didn’t play at all last season. But hey, it’s just semantics. The Chargers TE tore his ACL on the first day of OTAs last year and missed the entire season. One of the most promising tight ends of the last three years, Henry racked up an 81/1,057/12 line in his two years on the field, including a TE1 finish as a rookie in 2016 behind eight TDs. He’ll still have a talented group of pass-catchers to compete with for targets in Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, and Melvin Gordon, but Henry is more than capable of producing TE1 numbers in a Chargers offense sure to score a lot of points. Don’t let the injury scare you off, as he’s had over a year to recover and should be close to 100 percent by opening kickoff.

ADP Risers & Fallers in DRAFT Best Ball Leagues - Josh Shepardson
Melvin Gordon — who’s in the final year of his rookie contract — recently voiced a desire to come to a long-term agreement with the Chargers, but he’s also threatened to hold out and demand a trade if he doesn’t reach an agreement with the club. Both Ekeler and Jackson have seen their ADP rise, but it’s likely there’s more rising on the horizon unless Gordon receives a new deal.

Offensive Line Rankings and Fantasy Football Impact - Mike Tagliere
The Chargers invested a lot in their offensive line a few years ago, but they haven’t exactly seen the returns they’d hoped out of Dan Feeney and Forrest Lamp. The former hasn’t been very good, while the latter hasn’t been able to stay on the field. Fortunately, Russell Okung has been able to hold down left tackle and center Mike Pouncey did a respectable job on short notice last year. If Lamp can stay on the field and third-round pick Trey Pipkins can overtake the weak Sam Tevi, the line will be in much better shape. Melvin Gordon and Philip Rivers have been able to make it work the last few years despite the shortcomings of the offensive line, so improvement up front can only help.

Which positions do the quarterbacks target most often? - Scott Barrett
Philip Rivers, Joe Flacco, and Matthew Stafford were more of a surprise, though maybe not if we factor in the running backs they’ve played with throughout the majority of their careers (names like LaDanian Tomlinson, Darren Sproles, Ray Rice, Danny Woodhead, and Theo Riddick). Melvin Gordon has ranked top-10 in targets per game in each of the past three seasons and should rank highly again this year.
