Branden Oliver running into a tough matchup
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Chargers running back Branden Oliver will once again be the go-to guy in Week 8 against the Broncos Thursday, so what should Fantasy owners expect of him?

After consecutive double-digit Fantasy games, Oliver slowed up a big in Week 7, racking up just 7 points in a standard scoring format. Now he runs into a Broncos defense that is starting to live up to expectations. In consecutive games against the Jets and 49ers, the Broncos have allowed just 3 Fantasy points in each outing, and have not allowed a running back to find the end zone since Week 5.

Opposing backs are averaging just 2.90 yards per carry against the Broncos this season, so Oliver could be in for a tough game. Still, he has a workload few backs can compete with, so continue consider Oliver a solid start.

Phillip Rivers could keep rolling
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has scored at least 20 Fantasy points in five of seven games so far this season, and should keep on rolling in Week 8 against the Broncos Thursday.

The Broncos have been among the 10-worst defense in the league when it comes to slowing down quarterbacks, allowing 20.3 Fantasy points per game. And, though the game will be taking place Thursday, Fantasy owners shouldn't be too worried about that putting a damper on Rivers' roll. Rivers scored 18 Fantasy points in his last Thursday night game, and had 34 points in two games against the Broncos last season.

This game has all of the makings of a shootout, and Rivers has been just about as good as any quarterback in the league. Even with the short week, keep Rivers active for Week 8.

Four players were listed as probable -- linebacker Kavell Conner (ankle), tackle D.J. Fluker (ankle), linebacker Dwight Freeney (probable) and offensive lineman Rich Ohrnberger (back).

Chargers' Keenan Allen 'pretty patient' amid frustrating first half
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

It's quite evident Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen is having a much different season in 2014 after having a breakout rookie campaign in 2013. After totaling 71 catches for 1,046 yards and eight touchdowns last season, Allen has just 34 catches for 354 yards and no touchdowns in seven games this season.

"People, they aren't stupid," wide receivers coach Fred Graves said, per U-T San Diego. "They're not just going to let him run free. They're going to take some things away."

Allen has seen a lot more press coverage this season. He does have a team-high 34 catches, but he is averaging just 10.4 yards per catch and has had just two catches for 20-plus yards after totaling 16 as a rookie.

"They're pretty close to me after I catch the ball," Allen said.

Perhaps one of the biggest frustrations, especially if you play Fantasy Football, is Allen has no touchdowns. Though, Allen is pretty confident he will start scoring touchdowns.

"It'll come," he said. "I'm pretty patient. Frustrated, for sure, but I'm pretty patient. I understand what's going on with the offense, and we're winning, so it's not a big deal."
