  Chargers | San Diego hiring Anthony Lynn as HC    Thu Jan 12, 09:04 PM

The San Diego Chargers are finalizing a deal to make Buffalo Bills interim head coach Anthony Lynn their head coach Thursday, Jan. 12.

Footballguys view: Lynn is an interesting hire, as he did a fairly good job with the mess that was the Buffalo offense. Philip Rivers is in need of a tuneup again, and turned over the ball way too often at the end of this year. There's talent in the soon-to-be-LA Chargers, and they hope Lynn is finally the guy to pull it all together.

  Chargers | Anthony Lynn to meet with Bolts again    Thu Jan 12, 09:39 AM

Buffalo Bills interim head coach Anthony Lynn is scheduled for a second interview with the San Diego Chargers about their head coaching vacancy, according to sources.

Footballguys view: A lot of media people thought he was a shoo-in for the Bills job, but that didn't happen. The offense wasn't the whole issue in Buffalo last year and he did a good job with it. He might be a solid fit for the soon-to-be-LA Chargers, who once again have to find a way to pull Philip Rivers back from the abyss after a down year, with too many late-season interceptions.

  Chargers | Vance Joseph will meet with Chargers    Tue Jan 10, 06:30 PM

Miami Dolphins defensive coordinator Vance Joseph will meet with the San Diego Chargers Wednesday, Jan. 11, after meeting with the Denver Broncos Tuesday, Jan. 10.

Footballguys view: If he gets out of Denver that is. Joseph was once thought of as the Broncos top target and that it was his job to lose. After Falcons OC Kyle Shanahan blew them away with his interview last week, the Broncos may be leaning in a different direction.

  Chargers | Mike Bercovici back with Chargers    Tue Jan 10, 06:15 PM

San Diego Chargers QB Mike Bercovici was re-signed to a Reserve/Future deal Tuesday, Jan. 10.

Footballguys view: We're monitoring Bercovici in super deep dynasty leagues. Bercovici maneuvers in the pocket well and can make every throw required in the NFL. He likes to be aggressive as a passer, and that can be a double-edged sword at times.

  Chargers | Danny Woodhead eyeing return    Fri Jan 6, 11:56 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead (knee) said he isn't concerned about his knee injury and expects to be the same productive player when he returns.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners should expect that as well. In PPR formats, Woodhead has RB2 upside as a starter every week. We'll be monitoring his recovery closely as the year goes on.

  Chargers | Philip Rivers under the radar     Wed Jan 4, 06:54 PM

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers achieved one of the most underappreciated seasons of the year, throwing for 4,390 yards and 33 touchdowns -- ranked fifth and fourth, respectively, among quarterbacks.

Footballguys view: The Chargers didn't make it into the postseason and they fired their head coach Mike McCoy. Rivers was one of the lone bright spots (along with Melvin Gordon) as the offense had to continue working through multiple injuries to key players. McCoy won't be back in 2017, but Rivers will be and there's little sign of him slowing down.

  Chargers | Six players ink futures deals    Tue Jan 3, 11:02 PM

The San Diego Chargers have signed OL Brett Boyko, CB Randall Evans, CB Mike Lee, LB Chris McCain, S Adrian McDonald, and TE Jake McGee to Reserve/Futures contracts.

Footballguys view: McGee has incredible hands and can adjust to poorly thrown passes with ease. He's not going to run away from any defender, and he needs to work on better ways to get open but McGee is a prospect we're monitoring in super deep dynasty leagues.

New England Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia will interview with the San Diego Chargers this weekend for their vacant head coaching position, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Patricia has been the top defensive coach for the Patriots since 2012. Like all coordinators with Bill Belichick, Patricia is going to get interest from teams in need of some of that Patriots magic. The Rams are also interested in Patricia according to reports.

  Chargers | Dave Toub interview requested by Bolts    Tue Jan 3, 10:41 AM

Kansas City Chiefs special teams coach Dave Toub has been requested for an interview by the San Diego Chargers for their head coaching vacancy.

Footballguys view: Considered one of the best special teams coordinators in the league, Toub has been a head coaching candidate in the past. The Chiefs have a bye this week, and Toub may get a few interviews during this process.

The San Diego Chargers have declared TE Asante Cleveland, LB Denzel Perryman, DT Kaleb Eulls, OT King Dunlap, C Max Tuerk, RB Melvin Gordon, WR Travis Benjamin inactive for Week 17.

Footballguys view: Benjamin being out will make Dontrelle Inman and Tyrell Williams better Week 17 plays in possibly the last game ever for the San Diego Chargers.

  Chargers | Hunter Henry to be featured TE in 2017    Sat Dec 31, 06:29 PM

San Diego Chargers TE Hunter Henry will be the team's featured tight end next season regardless of whether or not Antonio Gates returns for a 15th season.

Footballguys view: Henry is certainly the heir apparent at the position for the Chargers. He should get work as the primary tight end for the team in 2017, and he's got low-end TE1 ability for fantasy owners with that role.

  Chargers | Andre Williams will be active    Sat Dec 31, 02:34 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Andre Williams will be active for the team's Week 17 game and will serve as the backup running back.

Footballguys view: Williams is a big-bodied back, but he's rigid as a runner and not elusive with the ball in his hands. He'll be a reserve back behind Ronnie Hillman in Week 17.

Meanwhile, OL Orlando Franklin (shoulder) and WR Jeremy Butler (ankle) were limited participants.

  Chargers | Melvin Gordon ruled out for Week 17    Fri Dec 30, 04:14 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (hip, knee) missed practice Friday, Dec. 30, and he has been ruled out for the team's Week 17 game Sunday, Jan. 1, against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Footballguys view: The Chargers didn't need to risk any further injury just because Gordon was close and he wanted 1,000 yards rushing on the season. This is the wise move.

  Chargers | Antonio Gates might play in 2017    Thu Dec 29, 01:42 AM

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates indicated Wednesday, Dec. 28, that he might play one more season in 2017. 'This is not the way I expected to be done. I'm definitely leaning toward coming back,' Gates said.

Footballguys view: Gates is coming off a nice effort in a loss to the Cleveland Browns, so we would imagine he feels he has to come back. The Chargers should be a team competing each year but after back to back 9-7 seasons under head coach Mike McCoy, it's been all downhill. Gates has a tough matchup this weekend, and while we think he could be a reliable play in a week where a lot of other tight ends may be resting or on short minutes.

San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (hip, knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 28.

Footballguys view: Gordon may actually play for the Chargers this week. If he can't, the Chargers have to turn to Ronnie Hillman as Kenneth Farrow is on I.R. Gordon is a game-time decision.

  Chargers | Melvin Gordon 'probably' a GTD    Tue Dec 27, 05:58 PM

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (knee, hip) said he will 'probably be a game-time decision' for the team's Week 17 game Sunday, Jan. 1. He added, 'If I can (play Sunday), I will.'

Footballguys view: The Chargers are thin at running back with Kenneth Farrow on I.R. They could use Gordon, but there's no need to rush him back for a meaningless Week 17 game. Ronnie Hillman could start for the Chargers this week.

  Chargers | No practice for Melvin Gordon    Tue Dec 27, 04:32 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (knee, hip) did not practice Tuesday, Dec. 27, although he is making progress in his recovery from knee and hip injuries.

Footballguys view: With Kenneth Farrow on I.R. the Chargers are left with castaways Ronnie Hillman and Andre Williams as RBs in Week 17. There's no need to rush Gordon back if he's not fully ready.

San Diego Chargers RB Kenneth Farrow (shoulder) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Dec. 26.

Footballguys view: Gordon tried to come back in Week 16 after sustaining this injury, but he's just not had much success as the team's lead back. Melvin Gordon could return to the lineup in Week 17 against the Chiefs. Ronnie Hillman will get a larger role without Farrow taking snaps.

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates posted game highs with eight receptions and 94 yards on 13 targets in the Week 16 game against the Cleveland Browns. He also scored a touchdown.

Footballguys view: Gates also had another end zone target in this game, but the pass was incomplete (and there was a pass interference penalty). He's got one more week to break the all-time touchdown record for tight ends currently held by Tony Gonzales.
