Fantasy Outlook:


Phillip Rivers - Top 15 - Definitely worth picking up this year and he can be counted on as a starter. He has a lot of weapons to throw to and he should have a really good year.


Keenan Allen - Top 5 - As long as he stays healthy, he is one of the best in the game.

Mike Williams - Sleeper? Maybe not considered a sleeper but I do think that this guy is underrated and you should be picking him up before other people in your league do.


Melvin Gordon - Top 10 - Another guy who is a great dual threat but my only concern with him is that he is undersized and I worry about the risk of injury. Prove me wrong Melvin.


Antonio Gates - He is back in town for another run with Rivers, I wouldn’t rely on him as a starter on your fantasy team though.

Up next:

Baltimore Ravens
