Among Tomlinson and Gates each being the tops at their positions, FanProphet also says the Chargers Defense and Special Teams unit is top five in terms of projected fantasy points:
DEFENSE: Without question this defensive unit is one of the top 5 defenses in the league and worthy of fielding every week in your fantasy lineup. Last season they produced a total of 28 takeaways and 61 sacks, therefore, it would behoove you to draft them when the defensive draft barrage begins. If they show half of the intensity they showed in 2006, they will remain dominate.
The fierce pass rush that Shawne Merriman, Shaun Phillips, and Luis Castillo provide is going to mean lots of sacks, negative yardage plays, forced fumbles, and interceptions. Those interceptions will come with natural playmakers like Antonio Cromartie and Eric Weddle getting more playing time. As long as the Chargers defense can become effective at stopping the pass game like they are at stuffing the run game, then not only will the unit be a top fantasy scoring defense, but they will also be a top defensive league-wide.
