San Diego Chargers to watch for Weekly Fantasy Football Leagues

The Chargers were at the forefront of the AFC West, finishing 2009 with a 13-3 regular season record. The Chargers' offense was very efficient, coming in at the No. 10 spot in the league with 360.1 yards per game. Defensively, the Chargers struggled somewhat in 2009, giving up 327 yards per game, putting them in 16th place in the NFL. Key Draft Picks to watch for weekly fantasy football leagues: Ryan Matthews: Fresno State RB Ryan Matthews was selected to be the new franchise RB after the Chargers released LaDainian Tomlinson earlier this year. Matthews will combine with RB Darren Sproles to help boost the Chargers' anemic running attack, which ranked 31st in the NFL in 2009. Donald Butler: San Diego added depth to their LB corp with the addition of Donald Butler from Washington. Butler's grade wasn't that great (5.0), and he will probably be a season or two away from having major playing time, but look for Butler to make an impact on special teams in 2010. Cam Thomas: San Diego looked to bolster their defense with a strong pick, and they got one in Thomas out of North Carolina. Thomas requires double teams, which will allow the LBs to come up and make plays. Good choice defensively for the Chargers. Key Free Agents to watch for weekly fantasy football leagues: Nathan Vasher: San Diego didn't do much in the free market, as Vasher was the Chargers' only pickup in the free agency. The Chargers brought the CB in to give the 16th-ranked defense a hand. Vasher has played all of his seven seasons with the Chicago Bears, so Vasher is experienced and that will translate well onto the field. Throughout his seven year career with the Bears, Vasher had 137


solo tackles, 1 FF, 19 INTs, and 2 TDs. Vasher will prove to be a solid defensive player in 2010. Are you feeling the excitement of the upcoming NFL season? Get into the real action at www.fantasyfactor.com the home of weekly fantasy football leagues
