Chargers vs. Broncos: Fantasy football projections featuring Philip Rivers, Ryan Mathews, Peyton Manning and Demaryius Thomas


We break down the pertinent fantasy projections for the Week 11 matchup between the Denver Broncos and San Diego Chargers

The Chargers and Broncos battle in a divisional matchup in Week 11. Fantasy football is closing in on the playoffs, which means every week ends up that much more important. To help you prepare your fantasy football lineup for Week 11, we've got game-by-game player projections courtesy of numberFire.

San Diego Chargers

Philip Rivers has turned in a couple huge first half in his last four games against the Buccaneers last week and the against the Broncos four weeks ago. Danario Alexander led the Chargers in yardage last week and he seems like a great fit as a big body that can stretch the field, but Malcom Floyd is a little bit more safe.

Ryan Mathews has big upside, but how many times have we said this? He's a decent option and is a game-time decision.

Denver Broncos

The Broncos are coming in red hot and they're scoring 30.1 points per game on the season. They've also won four games in a row thanks to Peyton Manning clicking with his new receivers. Demaryius Thomas is making a case for the best receiver in the AFC and is arguably the best fantasy receiver to own in the entire NFL. Eric Decker is also catching a lot of balls and they both should get deep on the vulnerable SD secondary.

Willis McGahee could lose reps to Ronnie Hillman, but he has a solid matchup.
