2013 Team Outlook: San Diego Chargers

A fantasy football preview of the San Diego Chargers this season. Profiled players include Philip Rivers, Charlie Whitehurst, Ryan Mathews, Ronnie Brown, and Danny Woodhead.

I do not think Green is draft worthy as Gates will see the playing time, but you have to think that if Gates is unproductive that San Diego might give Green a shot. Watch him on the waivers if he gets playing time.

Update 8/16: Green has flashed well in the preseason. Look for his opportunities to expand in the preseason. They want to get a good look at the kid, just in case something happens to Antonio Gates.

Novak's 90% field goals made was great last season, but his shear number of kicks was down dramatically from 2011. Novak should be a safe pick in your last draft round.

I think San Diego's defense is a gamble. They fell well down the list of defensive units. I do not think the addition of Dwight Freeney will do much good. His production has been declining and this defense needs new blood, not old. I would pass on this option.
