• Keenan Allen - WR
    Posted 10/20/17 1:47pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (shoulder) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 20, because of a shoulder injury he suffered Thursday, Oct. 19 and is listed as questionable for Week 7. Head coach Anthony Lynn said Allen hopes to play but the team will do what is best for Allen.

    Huddle Up: Owners probably will need to check the inactive list to see if Allen plays against the Denver Broncos. Allen is a risky option because of the injury and the tough matchup but can still be at least a No. 3 fantasy receiver if he plays.

  • Antonio Gates - TE
    Posted 10/20/17 9:32pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry has seen 15 targets over the last two games compared to four targets for TE Antonio Gates. Gates was targeted 17 times and Henry 10 times over the first four games.

    Huddle Up: Now that Gates has the touchdown record for tight ends, it looks like the Chargers are featuring Henry. He looks like a TE1 going forward.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB
    Posted 10/19/17 3:50pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (shoulder) was a limited participant in practice for the second consecutive day Thursday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Even though he's been limited, the fact that he's been able to practice both days indicates there should be no issue concerning him suiting up on Sunday. It's a tough matchup but obviously, Gordon needs to be started everywhere. Plus, Denver might not be as intimidating as they usually are after allowing a 100-yard effort to the far inferior Orleans Darkwa last Sunday night, providing hope Gordon can carve out a nice performance for his owners.

  • Keenan Allen - WR
    Posted 10/19/17 3:42pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (shoulder) was added to the injury report Thursday, Oct. 19, getting in a limited practice.

    Huddle Up: Despite being a late addition, this shouldn't affect Allen's status on Sunday, though he'll have a tough enough matchup anyway dealing with the always stingy Broncos defense. The six-year veteran is out to a sensational start after missing all but one game a year ago, as he's on pace for career highs in catches (88) and receiving yards (1,189). He should always be in the lineup no matter who his opponent is.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB
    Posted 10/18/17 4:03pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (shoulder) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Oc.t 18.

    Huddle Up: You're not going to bench Gordon if he's active, but the matchup is worrisome versus the Denver Broncos, even after they just yielded over 100 yards to Orleans Darkwa. Even so, start Gordon as long as he's playing. He is averaging 156.5 total yards, 7.5 catches and two touchdowns over his last two contests.

  • Mike Williams - WR
    Posted 10/15/17 7:07am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) will make his NFL debut in Week 6's game against the Oakland Raiders, although he will be on a snap count.

    Huddle Up: Williams is too much of a risk to start in any fantasy format this week, although he is worth rostering in keeper and dynasty leagues, with his role in the offense expected to grow as the season progresses.

  • Hunter Henry - TE
    Posted 10/15/17 8:40pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry finished with five catches for a team-high 90 yards in a 17-16 win over the Oakland Raiders in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: After being held without a catch in two of the first three games, Hunter is starting to find his rhythm. He has TE1 upside going forward.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB
    Posted 10/15/17 8:35pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon finished with 25 carries for 83 yards and a touchdown and caught nine passes 67 yards and a score in a 17-16 win over the Oakland Raiders in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Gordon continues to handle a massive workload, making him a RB1 against any opponent.

  • Keenan Allen - WR
    Posted 10/15/17 8:57pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen finished with five catches on nine targets for 45 yards in a 17-16 win over the Oakland Raiders in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Allen was held below 60 yards for the first time this season, but he has seen at least nine targets in every game. Being Philip Rivers' go-to option should keep him in the WR2 range on a weekly basis.

  • Mike Williams - WR
    Posted 10/15/17 8:43pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) made his season debut Sunday, Oct. 15, catching his only target for 15 yards in a 17-16 win over the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: The rookie is going to need some time to develop, but he has the size to make an impact in the red zone sooner rather than later. He is an upside WR5 worth stashing.

  • Mike Williams - WR
    Posted 10/14/17 8:52pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) is expected to make his NFL debut in Week 6 against the Oakland Raiders, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: It is way too risky to start Williams in his debut, but the rookie is worth owning in most formats. His role in the offense should only grow as the season goes on.

  • Mike Williams - WR
    Posted 10/13/17 3:15pm ET

    San Diego Chargers LB Mike Williams (back) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 13, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if Williams will be able to play this week. He could receive limited playing time if he is active since he has missed the first five games of the season. Owners may want to avoid him this week but he could have value during the second half of the season.

  • Mike Williams - WR
    Posted 10/12/17 4:08pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) was a limited participant at practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: All signs point to Williams making his NFL debut on Sunday but it's really tough to trust him out of the gate in any league. While there are no doubts about his talent, the rookie's role and number of snaps will absolutely be up in the air in his very first game. And aside from that, there are so many mouths to feed in this offense that it would be tough to gauge how many looks Williams will get. Thus, he should be left on the bench for now, but he certainly has potential to break out at some point.

  • Philip Rivers - QB
    Posted 10/12/17 8:09pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon is starting to find a rhythm running the football and is seeing the running lanes better, according to QB Philip Rivers.

    Huddle Up: Gordon is coming off his best game of the season, and he remains one of the true every-down backs in the game today. His huge workload makes him a RB1 heading into a Week 6 matchup with the Oakland Raiders.

  • Dontrelle Inman - WR
    Posted 10/11/17 3:58pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Dontrelle Inman (hamstring) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 11.

    Huddle Up: Inman has been limited to two catches and nine yards this season and could lose targets if Mike Williams is ready to play. Owners in all leagues should avoid Inman this week.

  • Mike Williams - WR
    Posted 10/11/17 3:58pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 11.

    Huddle Up: Williams is expected to make his NFL debut in Week 6, but owners should check on his status later in the week. He probably will be eased into the lineup, so owners can avoid him this week but he should have value during the second half of the season.

  • Mike Williams - WR
    Posted 10/11/17 6:31pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) is 'very close' to making his NFL debut, according to head coach Anthony Lynn. They're going to see at the end of the week where he's at, but in the meantime, Williams has 'been in the playbook the whole time.'

    Huddle Up: It's looking like the No. 7 overall draft pick in this past April's draft will be ready to make his debut in Week 6, though it's tough to gauge what role he'll be used in and how many snaps he'll get in his first contest as a pro. There's no denying Williams' immense talent, but with Keenan Allen and Tyrell Williams ahead of him, not to mention having to play alongside two talented tight ends, there may not be many looks to Williams out of the gate.

  • Tyrell Williams - WR
    Posted 10/8/17 5:18am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Tyrell Williams (neck) is expected to play in Week 5's game against the New York Giants, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Williams was listed as questionable on the injury report despite being a full practice participant during the week. He is coming off his best game of the season, with five catches for 115 yards and a touchdown versus the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 4, and makes a serviceable WR3 or flex option for Week 5's fantasy games.

  • Mike Williams - WR
    Posted 10/8/17 6:24am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) is expected to make his NFL debut in Week 6 against the Oakland Raiders, provided that he doesn't suffer any setbacks during the practice sessions leading up to the game, according to multiple league sources.

    Huddle Up: Williams was a limited practice participant this week but has already been ruled out for Week 5's game against the New York Giants. He's worth stashing in the majority of seasonal fantasy leagues although it's uncertain if he will see a limited number of snaps in his first game.

  • Tyrell Williams - WR
    Posted 10/8/17 9:13am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Tyrell Williams (neck) is officially active for the team's Week 5 game.

    Huddle Up: Williams should receive his normal workload this week despite the injury. He is coming off a breakout performance in Week 4 and should receive a solid amount of targets. He has the chance be a No. 3 receiver for fantasy owners this week.

  • Tyrell Williams - WR
    Posted 10/8/17 5:03pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Tyrell Williams managed just one catch for 22 yards on two targets in Week 5 against the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: Williams was limited this week due to a neck injury, so perhaps that is why he struggled in this one. But his production was very disappointing after 115 yards and a touchdown last weekend against the Eagles. He'll look to get back on track in Week 6 at Oakland.

  • Hunter Henry - TE
    Posted 10/8/17 5:02pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry posted three catches for 42 yards and a touchdown on eight targets in Week 5 against the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: The Giants defense hasn't been terribly mindful of opposing tight ends, so it was a decent showing for Henry. He could have done even more, as Philip Rivers looked his way plenty. Still, it wasn't a bad performance. He'll look to carry over the momentum into Week 6 against the Oakland Raiders.

  • Austin Ekeler - RB
    Posted 10/8/17 5:01pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler rushed four times for zero yards and he added three catches for 28 yards on six targets in Week 5 against the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: Head coach Anthony Lynn said earlier in the week that he wanted to get Ekeler more touches, and the rookie did see a bump in action after one run and five catches through the first four games. Still, he'll need to do a lot more before he is a fantasy regular.

  • Keenan Allen - WR
    Posted 10/8/17 5:01pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen posted four receptions for a team-high 67 yards on 12 targets in Week 5 against the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: Philip Rivers looked for Allen early and often, but they still managed to hook up just the four times. Allen has four or more grabs in each of his five games, and he remains a solid PPR fantasy option heading into Week 6 against the Raiders. He hasn't visited the end zone since Week 1, but his yardage total (401) makes him still worth of WR2/3 consideration in standard leagues, too.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB
    Posted 10/8/17 5:00pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon rushed 20 times for 105 yards in Week 5 against the New York Giants and he added six receptions for 58 yards and two touchdowns on eight targets.

    Huddle Up: It was Gordon's first 100-yard game of the season, and he has managed five total touchdowns (two rushing, three receiving) through five games. He remains a solid RB1 in all fantasy formats heading into Week 6 against the Oakland Raiders on the road.

  • Philip Rivers - QB
    Posted 10/8/17 4:59pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers completed just 21 of his 44 pass attempts for 258 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in the Week 5 game against the New York Giants. He passed Hall of Famer Fran Tarkenton for 10th on the NFL's all-time career passing yardage list.

    Huddle Up: Rivers had his worst completion percent (47.7) of the season, but he tied a season high with the three scoring strikes and the Bolts picked up their first win, too. He'll look to carry over the momentum into Week 6 in Oakland against a mediocre Raiders pass defense.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB
    Posted 10/6/17 2:53pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 6, and is not on the injury report for Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Gordon has been dealing with the knee injury for several weeks but should receive his normal workload this week. He was limited to 22 yards last week but does have two rushing touchdowns on the season. He can be considered a No. 2 running back or a flex option in leagues this week.

  • Tyrell Williams - WR
    Posted 10/6/17 2:49pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Tyrell Williams (neck) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 6, but is listed as questionable for Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Williams should have a good chance to play in Week 5 since he was a full participation during practice this week. He is coming off his best game of the season in Week 4 and has been targeted at least six times in three of the four games in 2017. He is facing a solid New York Giants secondary but can still be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

  • Mike Williams - WR
    Posted 10/6/17 2:49pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 6, but has been ruled out for Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Williams continues to work his way back from his back injury but is still at least a week away from returning. Owners will need to check on his status next week.

  • Nick Novak - PK
    Posted 10/5/17 12:44pm ET

    Free-agent PK Nick Novak (Texans) signed with the Los Angeles Chargers Thursday, Oct. 5. Terms of the contract were not disclosed. The team also waived PK Younghoe Koo.

    Huddle Up: Novak made 35 of his 41 field goal attempts last season and will have chances to put up points with the Chargers. He could be a bye week option for owners.
