Edit : we should have a Thursday deadline for these next week so we get the article up in time
Miami at San Diego
Its official, LT2 is out for this game. In theory this should help the Dophins. But we all know about crazy theories. In reality, this will help the Chargers. A sub-100% Tomlinson is a detriment to the Chargers offense. I'd rather he not play at 70%, gain 30 yards on 20 carries and hurt both your fantasy team and the Chargers. The best thing coming from this news is that Darren Sproles will be the feature back. He is THE MAN. Over 400 yards of total offense from his wouldn't surprise me, and I expect over 275 rushing+receiving+return yards at a minimum. Vincent Jax is becoming a man in front of our eyes, making fingertip grabs, keeping his feet in bounds and is Philip's #1 receiver. Look for 100 yards and a TD coming his way. Sproles should get around 125 on the ground, 100 in the air via screens and wheel routes and 2 TDs total. Rivers will get his 300 yards passing, 2 TDs, and 1 unsportsmanlike taunting penalty like he usually does. Pennington should be throwing a bunch of short passes and may get 150-200 total passing yards. Ginn still hasn't figured out that a catch constitutes of holding on to the football and Bess is showing us a high ceiling. Even with fewer targets they should get about 60 yards each receiving. I see the TDs going to Ronnie Brown - and Miami scores about 17 pts total in my opinion. With Jamal Williams out for the year, Brown and Ricky will be the heart of the offense, 100 yards total for Run Ronnie Run and 60 for the ganja man. On the TE front, Gates might catch around 7 passes for 60 yards, Fasano just a couple grabs for 30 yards. Look for a Charger win, 34-17.
