The Los Angeles Chargers defense made a lot of noise in Saturday's scrimmage against their crosstown rivals, and defensive end Melvin Ingram was front-and-center. ESPN's Eric D. Williams noted that it seemed like Ingram wasn't blocked all day, and he gave rival quarterback Jared Goff fits throughout the practice. With pieces such as Ingram and reigning Defensive Rookie of the Year Joey Bosa up front and Pro Bowler Jason Verret and Second Team All-Pro Casey Hayward, LA's defense could be an excellent choice for fantasy owners.

The Los Angeles Chargers placed the franchise tag on linebacker Melvin Ingram Monday. After injuries slowed the start of his career, Ingram has come on strong the last two years and racked up eight sacks, 46 total tackles, four forced fumbles and five passes defensed in a full season in 2016. Combined with emerging stud Joey Bosa, the Chargers will have one of the more formidable and under-the-radar pass rushes in the NFL. Consider the Los Angeles defense an excellent sleeper pick in fantasy drafts if you want to wait on your team defense.
