Led by a veteran QB, carried by a powerful runner, and blessed with one of the game’s best defenses, the Chargers are bound to be a popular pick for H2H matchups.
Knowing your WRs is essential to a successful pass game. Keenan Allen isn’t the most explosive, but he’s the best player on the Chargers roster. Behind in the depth chart are deep threats Travis Benjamin and Tyrell Williams. Benjamin is more explosive, while Williams is the better route runner. If you’re going to hot route because of a blitz, use Allen. He’s great with shorter routes.
Melvin Gordon III was a popular HB in last season’s competitive circuit for his Speed, power, and versatility. He remains a great HB in Madden 19 and has solid catching skills as well. If in the red zone, feed Gordon.
Their longtime signal caller, Philip Rivers, is a pure pocket passer. His accuracy ratings are near elite level, and he’s great under pressure. But he’s a statue out there and stands almost no chance at breaking a sack. Go through your progressions and know when to throw it away and you should be fine.
Casey Hayward Jr. resembles a traditional CB. He’s a cover artist with enough talent to create a no fly zone around your opponent’s top WR.
You really can’t ask for a better defensive line when the DEs are Joey Bose and Melvin Ingrim III. These speedy rushers can easily contain against mobile QBs and both are equipped with Finesse and Power Moves that should make breaking through the line routine.
Strong Safety Derwin James is surrounded by CB talent, which means he’s the player that can usually roam free for additional support. If a HB gets into some open space, James is likely the one that can stop it as he’s the Chargers’ biggest hitter.
