NFL: Preseason-Seattle Seahawks at Los Angeles Chargers Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Is Cardale Jones' breakthrough with Chargers too late? And does the XFL loom? - Eric D. Williams
Added Lynn: "He understands that if you want to be good at this league and take your game to the next level, you definitely have to outwork and work as hard as anyone with no sympathy. Not saying that he wasn't a hard worker, but the things that I see now, all the extra effort that he’s doing, I didn't see before."

Chargers player who could be a surprise addition to the final roster - Gavino Borquez
With the loss of Derwin James, a safety spot has opened up. At the moment, Teamer has the advantage to get the fifth slot, but could Los Angeles elect to keep six safeties on the roster, Pickett might have a great opportunity with a strong performance tomorrow.

PFF picks best bets with current NFL MVP odds ahead of the 2019 season - Eric Eager
The man who replaced Brees in San Diego is equipped with likely his best supporting cast since his starting debut in 2006, as the Chargers are currently handicapped to win 10 games and are +1600 to win the Super Bowl. There are some concerns here if you’re going to bet on Rivers, however, with left tackle Russell Okung, running back Melvin Gordon and safety Derwin James missing from action currently. There’s also the fact that they are still playing in a temporary stadium and do not play the Chiefs in the state of California, significantly reducing their chances of winning the division (and hence Rivers’ chance of winning the award).

'My Guys' -- Scott Barrett's favorite fantasy football picks of the 2019 season - Scott Barrett
After the Big 3, we have the littler/younger Big 3 in O.J. Howard (TE4), Evan Engram (TE5), and Hunter Henry (TE6). Howard and Henry make this tier due to their historically great rookie and sophomore seasons.

The most undervalued fantasy football player on every roster - Daniel Kelley
Melvin Gordon, RB (31st overall, RB17): I’m open to the idea that I’m wrong for continuing to have Gordon as the No. 6 running back in my own rankings. That’s possible. I’m not ready to concede that the risk is so great that he should be going as a mid-to-low RB2, that he should be going one spot above David Montgomery. It’s a ridiculous overcorrection.
