The Chargers didn't have much name recognition tied to their defense, but they were a productive fantasy unit a year ago because of seven defensive touchdowns, two returns for touchdowns in the kicking game and a remarkable 14 fumble recoveries. Because an owner cannot count on those freak results year to year, consider the Chargers a low-end fantasy defensive unit. The addition of Manti Te'o could bring a marketable name to the unit -- not to mention some run stuffing -- but mostly ignore the individuals here in IDP leagues.
