The San Diego Chargers have normally been a team that holds great fantasy football value. With an explosive offense, many fantasy football participants look to grab as many Chargers players as they can. Then last year came and went, and it seemed to ruin all the Chargers players’ fantasy value.
Philip Rivers, who normally is one of the top-rated quarterbacks heading into a new season, is now somewhat of an afterthought following a poor year in 2011. Ryan Mathews, who surprised many people last year with his breakout season, is once again hurt, causing his fantasy value to fall.
Vincent Jackson, one of the most productive wide receivers in the entire league, is no longer on the roster, leaving Malcolm Floyd, Robert Meachem and Eddie Royal to fill his void.
Despite the injuries and free-agency departures, the Chargers still have many solid options on their roster that could help make your fantasy football team an instant contender in your league.
