Week 13: vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers

All WR vs TB

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Philip Rivers has thrown three TDs in two straight games, and multiple TDs in four of his last four contests - last week he also cut down on interceptions and wound up with 22/30 for 242 yards passing, three TDs and one interception thrown at Houston (and took home a 'W', 21-13). Unfortunately Tyrell Williams left the game early with a shoulder injury, and he's said to be sore still this week (head coach Mike McCoy said on Tuesday, November 29 'He's good. He's a little sore. He's a little sore when he came down on it.') The Chargers hope Williams can go for Week 13, but fantasy owners will want to monitor his practice participation later in the week as current reports are that Williams' labrum is damaged and the extent of the damage isn't known as of midweek. Williams had 14 targets for 8/70/1 receiving before departing last week - Dontrelle Inman (six for 6/119/1) and Hunter Henry (three for 2/20/1) also snagged TDs from Rivers. If Williams is out this week, Inman and Travis Benjamin (two targets for 1/8/0 receiving last week) would need to pick up the slack. The Buccaneers stopped Seattle 14-5 last week, limiting Russell Wilson to 17/33 for 118 net yards passing, zero TDs and two interceptions, with six sacks for -33 yards. Tampa now has 27 sacks on the season (10th in the NFL), with nine interceptions (tied for ninth) while averaging 253.5 net passing yards allowed per game (17th in the NFL) with 20 passing scores given out to date. From Week Nine to Week 12 of the 2016 season (over the last four weeks, but includes 14 teams on bye during that time span - each team has at least three games played in the last four weeks), Tampa has averaged 20.4 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (14th-least in the NFL); and 20.2 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (ninth-least); with 10.3 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (seventh-most). This looks like a neutral matchup for the home-team Chargers.
