San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 17, and has been ruled out for Week 7.

  Chargers | Ryan Mathews misses practice again    Thu Oct 16, 04:22 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (knee) missed practice again Thursday, Oct. 16.

Footballguys view: Mathews might come back as the starter, but Branden Oliver has carved himself out a sizable role....even when Mathews is back. We may not see Mathews back for a couple more weeks...stay tuned.

  Chargers | Donald Brown misses another practice    Thu Oct 16, 04:20 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown (concussion) missed practice again Thursday, Oct. 16.

Footballguys view: Brandon Oliver is the guy to run with here, even if Brown is healthy. Against KC this week, Oliver is an RB1/RB2 type of guy and he'll get a lot of opportunity and touches.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen off injury report    Thu Oct 16, 04:18 PM

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) was not listed on the team's injury report Thursday, Oct. 16.

Footballguys view: Allen is definitely in a sophomore slump with these injuries/inconsistencies, which makes him a WR3 with risk. Disappointing as that is, Malcom Floyd is playing well though and is worth a look as a low end WR3.

  Chargers | Ryan Mathews remains sidelined    Thu Oct 16, 12:51 AM

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (knee) continues to rehab from a Sept. 14 injury to his right knee, but he will not play in Week 7 against the Kansas City Chiefs, and it might not be Week 8 against the Denver Broncos in a game Thursday, Oct. 23.

Footballguys view: That keeps Brandon Oliver as a high-end RB2 this week. We'll be curious to see how this plays out long term with Mathews in the final year of his contract. While he has been productive at times, he's also spent way too much time on the trainers table.

San Diego Chargers WR Eddie Royal (rib) is participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 15.

Footballguys view: It looks like Royal will be good to go for Week 7. He's worth a 'what the heck' flex play against the Chiefs.

  Chargers | Eddie Royal clutch on third downs    Tue Oct 14, 01:01 PM

San Diego Chargers WR Eddie Royal is 11-for-11 on third-down targets for 170 yards this season with three touchdowns and seven first downs, and QB Philip Rivers has come to trust the veteran wide receiver in those situations.

Footballguys view: Royal has been coming through for his team in a big way. His third-down catches, yardage and touchdown totals in a four-game span since the team lost Danny Woodhead (leg) are the most in the NFL.

  Chargers | Eddie Royal's injury not serious    Tue Oct 14, 12:47 PM

San Diego Chargers WR Eddie Royal's (rib) injury isn't considered serious, according to a source. Royal could miss little, if any, time.

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 10, and is probable for Week 6 against the Oakland Raiders.

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (calf) was limited in practice for the third straight day Friday, Oct. 10, and is questionable for Week 6 against the Oakland Raiders.

  Chargers | Ryan Mathews ruled out    Fri Oct 10, 03:16 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (knee) has been ruled out for Week 6.

Footballguys view: Mathews is still at least another week away from returning. Earlier this week it was reported that he hadn't started to run on his injured knee yet. Branden Oliver's opportunity is huge right now. He could inherit more than the Danny Woodhead role if he keeps playing well.

  Chargers | Malcom Floyd limited    Thu Oct 9, 04:18 PM

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (calf) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 9.

Footballguys view: Floyd's calf injury holds back his fantasy value a bit in Week 6. The matchup against the Raiders is sweet, but consider Floyd a WR4/flex play.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen limited in practice    Thu Oct 9, 04:16 PM

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (quadriceps) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 9.

Footballguys view: This quad injury is frustrating for fantasy owners. Allen has top-10 talent, but he's yet to consistently perform up to that level in 2014. We like him as a mid-range WR2 play in Week 6 against the Raiders.

  Chargers | Ryan Mathews doesn't practice    Thu Oct 9, 04:14 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (knee) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 9, for the second straight day. Mathews has not even started running yet and will still be out a few weeks.

Footballguys view: Reports indicate that Mathews is targeting a Week 8 return. This makes Branden Oliver the man for the Chargers. We like Oliver as a RB2 with RB1 upside in Week 6 against the Raiders.

  Chargers | Donald Brown missing practice    Thu Oct 9, 02:53 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown (concussion) is not participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 9, and may not be able to play in Week 6.

Footballguys view: As if we weren't already thinking good things about Branden Oliver, knowing Brown won't be there to muck things up is even better. We have him as a solid RB2 this week against an underwhelming Raiders defense.

  Chargers | Ryan Mathews not running yet    Thu Oct 9, 12:50 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (knee) has not started running since he suffered his medial collateral ligament injury in Week 2. There is still a chance Mathews is able to return before the end of the month.

Footballguys view: Meanwhile we'll get a good look at Branden Oliver and maybe Ronnie Brown. We know what Brown is, but Oliver is still a bit of a mystery and could snag some carries that stick even if Mathews is back at the end of the month.

  Chargers | Danny Woodhead undergoes surgery    Thu Oct 9, 12:36 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead (leg) underwent surgery last week to repair his broken fibula, and the surgery went well, according to sources.

Footballguys view: While he's gone for the season, he could still have value next year if he can recover well. We'll be watching.

  Chargers | Ronnie Brown could play in Week 6    Thu Oct 9, 12:34 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Ronnie Brown (concussion) could have a role in the passing game if he is cleared to play in Week 6. RB Branden Oliver likely will receive most of the carries during the game.

Footballguys view: It's hard to gauge if Branden Oliver was really as good as he looked against a New York Jets defense which is normally tremendous against the run or if he looked good against a defense that imploded on a team which is going supernova as we speak. Lucky for his owners, he has Oakland this week and they are absolutely not good against the run so he's a safe bet for RB2 numbers. If he proves himself reliable, Ronnie Brown might have no value at all. As it stands, don't have Brown in a lineup if he's active.

  Chargers | Donald Brown not on the field    Wed Oct 8, 02:42 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown (concussion) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 8.

Footballguys view: We will see the Chargers follow the NFL's protocol for dealing with concussions. In the meantime, Branden Oliver should be the lead back for the Chargers until Ryan Mathews is back from his knee injury. That makes Oliver's fantasy value a RB2 with upside (especially in PPR leagues) for another couple of weeks.
