It was one of two sacks and three fumble recoveries for the Chargers on the day. Their DST has contributed a touchdown in three of the last five weeks.
Though the touchdowns have made the Chargers DST a productive Fantasy unit in recent weeks, it's been giving up plenty of points and yardage. You still wouldn't want to trust in it outside of an especially favorable matchup, which it doesn't have Week 17 at Kansas City.
The Chargers held up Ok in the game, holding the Broncos to just 337 yards of total offense, mostly by shutting the running game down. However, they also failed to make any big plays, coming up with just one sack and no turnovers in the loss.
All things considered, this could have gone worse for the Chargers, who had zero Fantasy points in their Week 8 matchup with the Broncos. However, they came up with just 3 Sunday, so it wasn't that much better. They will look to bounce back in Week 16 against the 49ers, but are not a recommended Fantasy play for that game.
Considering they were facing one of the league's most prolific offenses, the
The Chargers also had one interception and one sack and have been especially lacking in the latter lately, recording just four in their last six games. Their DST has scored 13-plus Fantasy points, though, three of the last four weeks.
Though they survived the Patriots, they're really pushing their luck going against the Broncos the following week, so don't rush to add the Chargers DST off waivers in Fantasy.
The Chargers limited the Ravens to 350 yards of total offense and allowed just three touchdowns in seven red zone trips, so this could have been even worse. However, they held them to four field goals in the game, while failing to record a single turnover and sacking Joe Flacco just once.
The Chargers DST unit ended the game with zero Fantasy points, their third time in five games failing to record a single point. They could struggle yet again in Week 14 as well, with the Patriots on the schedule.
