  Chargers | Antonio Gates likely to miss Week 4    Mon Sep 26, 01:50 PM

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) 'wasn't close' to playing in Week 3 versus the Indianapolis Colts and is likely to miss Week 4 against the New Orleans Saints, according to Michael Gehlken of The San Diego Union-Tribune.

Footballguys view: Without Gates on the field, the team will turn to rookie Hunter Henry again. In Week 3 against the Colts, Henry hauled in five passes for 76 yards.

  Chargers | Manti Te'o out for season    Mon Sep 26, 10:39 AM

Updating previous reports, San Diego Chargers LB Manti Te'o (Achilles') had an MRI confirm a torn Achilles', and he'll miss the rest of the season.

Footballguys view: Te'o went down on a play without contact where he was roaming in coverage. In the final year of his rookie contract, Te'o is going to have to prove to teams in the spring that he can recover fully -- while the free agency process is underway.

  Chargers | Antonio Gates not playing    Sun Sep 25, 04:15 PM

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) has been declared inactive for Week 3.

Footballguys view: Gates injury could be a mutli-week issue with his never seeming close to playing this week. He has played through these kinds of injuries in the past, so this is not a minor hamstring injury. If you were relying on Gates at tight end, you'll need to make other plans for the foreseeable future.

  Chargers | Week 3 Inactives    Sun Sep 25, 03:12 PM

The San Diego Chargers have declared TE Antonio Gates, SS Jahleel Addae, DL Joey Bosa, LB Joshua Perry, OT King Dunlap, C Max Tuerk, DL Ryan Carrethers inactive for Week 3.

Footballguys view: Rookie Hunter Henry will get the start with Gates out. Philip Rivers has lost his top receiving back, wide receiver, and tight end this year going into this matchup with the weak Colts defense.

  Chargers | Hunter Henry to be busy in Week 3?    Sat Sep 24, 09:49 PM

San Diego Chargers TE Hunter Henry is a 'tremendous receiver,' according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt, and QB Philip Rivers said Henry's 'catches are coming.'

Footballguys view: Henry has a high bar to clear to be relevant for fantasy leagues as a rookie tight end, but the Chargers have a need for weapons with their top receiving back and wide receiver out for the season. Deep and TE premium league players should keep an eye on him.

San Diego Chargers TE Asante Cleveland was signed off the practice squad Saturday, Sept. 24, further signaling that Antonio Gates (hamstring) will likely not play in Week 3 versus the Indianapolis Colts.

Footballguys view: Get ready for Hunter Henry as the lead TE for the Chargers. Henry makes for a nice 'throw a dart' TE if you're desperate at the position. The rookie also makes for a sneaky DFS play due to his low cost.

  Chargers | Antonio Gates doubtful for Week 3    Fri Sep 23, 02:59 PM

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) has yet to practice this week and has been all but ruled out for Week 3 versus the Indianapolis Colts.

Footballguys view: Rookie Hunter Henry will get the start, as the Chargers have now lost three key pieces of their offense for the Week 3 game. Philip Rivers has a great matchup, but Vontae Davis could return and make life tough for Travis Benjamin. It could be a slow offensive day through the air for the Chargers with a lot of Melvin Gordon on the ground.

  Chargers | Antonio Gates not on the field    Thu Sep 22, 02:23 PM

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) is not participating in practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

Footballguys view: Given the state of the receivers in San Diego, we think Gates starts to pick up steam this week. He's a low-end TE1, and safer as a TE2 play given the last two weeks, but his upside is nice.

  Chargers | Antonio Gates uncertain for Week 3    Thu Sep 22, 01:39 AM

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) is uncertain for Week 3 against the Indianapolis Colts, as he is battling a hamstring injury.

  Chargers | Dexter McCluster to play in Week 3    Thu Sep 22, 12:35 AM

San Diego Chargers RB Dexter McCluster is expected to be active for the Week 3 game against the Indianapolis Colts. He is familiar with the offense, as Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt was his head coach in Tennessee. 'I've pretty much got the offense down,' McCluster said Wednesday, Sept. 21. 'Right now, it's just repetition, being on the same page as the quarterback. I sat in with the offensive line for a short period this morning, just to build that camaraderie, see how I fit in and let them know, 'Hey, I'm serious about what I'm doing'.'

Footballguys view: No surprise here really. McCluster knows the offense, and can get his way onto the field immediately. That doesn't mean he has fantasy relevance in Week 3.

  Chargers | San Diego hosts Ronnie Hillman    Tue Sep 20, 05:26 PM

Free-agent RB Ronnie Hillman (Broncos) visited the San Diego Chargers Tuesday, Sept. 20.

Footballguys view: Hillman worked under Mike McCoy when the Chargers head coach was the OC in Denver (2012). The speedy veteran was the leading rusher for the Broncos in 2015, but he couldn't beat out Kapri Bibbs for a roster spot. An unrestricted free agent earlier this year, Hillman received no offers and returned to Denver on a cheap deal...then he didn't make the team. Somebody like the Chargers (or the Dolphins?) could sign Hillman at some point this year.

  Chargers | Dexter McCluster signs with Chargers    Tue Sep 20, 03:47 PM

Updating a previous report, free-agent RB Dexter McCluster (Titans) signed with the San Diego Chargers Tuesday, Sept. 20. WR Isaiah Burse was subsequently waived.

Footballguys view: Without Danny Woodhead, the Chargers needed to sign a change-of-pace back. McCluster knows the system as he worked under Chargers OC Ken Whisenhunt when the two were with the Titans. McCluster can fill the Woodhead role, but he won't look as good or be as productive. We think Melvin Gordon gets an even larger role with Woodhead out.

  Chargers | San Diego likely to sign Dexter McCluster    Tue Sep 20, 01:40 PM

Free-agent RB Dexter McCluster (Titans) is expected to sign RB Dexter McCluster shortly to fill the pass-catching role out of the backfield left behind by the season-ending ACL injury to Danny Woodhead, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Footballguys view: McCluster played under Chargers OC Ken Whisenhunt when both were with the Tennessee Titans. He can play the Woodhead role, he just won't look as good or be as productive. We still think Woodhead's injury just opens the door for Melvin Gordon to do more -- and he's looked fantastic this year.

  Chargers | Danny Woodhead placed on IR    Mon Sep 19, 04:33 PM

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a torn anterior cruciate ligament Monday, Sept. 19.

Footballguys view: We hate to see this, especially since the Chargers lost WR Keenan Allen for the season after Week 1. Woodhead was a key piece of the offense, and now the team will turn to Melvin Gordon to do more. He's responded with a great start to the 2016 season so far. Kenneth Farrow and Andre Williams will compete for spots in the pecking order behind Gordon.

  Chargers | Danny Woodhead likely out for season    Mon Sep 19, 02:48 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead (knee) is reportedly still awaiting MRI results, but the team is 'pretty certain' he tore his ACL in a Week 2 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Footballguys view: Just terrible news here. The Chargers lost a key weapon in WR Keenan Allen last week, and this week another big piece of the offense is done. Without Woodhead, we should see second-year pro Melvin Gordon step into an even larger role.

  Chargers | Danny Woodhead helped off     Sun Sep 18, 04:52 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead (knee) was carried off the field, Sunday, Sept. 18, unable to put any weight on his injured knee. Woodhead was being evaluated by team trainers on the sideline before a cart brought him into the locker room for further testing.

Footballguys view: If Woodhead can return in a month or so, it should be considered a victory. The injury looked like a potential season-ender, and it should open up Melvin Gordon to have an RB1 ceiling every week, although it's another blow to Philip Rivers and the San Diego offense as a whole.

  Chargers | Melvin Gordon not benched in Week 1    Sat Sep 17, 03:04 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon drew compliments from offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt for his play in Week 1 versus the Kansas City Chiefs. Whisenhunt insists Gordon was mostly the victim of circumstance, suggesting San Diego had an effective personnel grouping including Danny Woodhead that got the offense into third-and-manageable situations in the second half.

Footballguys view: Gordon got into the end zone twice in Week 1, and the team could lean on him more going forward. The second-year pro was drafted in the first round to be their lead back, and they may use him more now that WR Keenan Allen is out for the year.

  Chargers | Antonio Gates to see more action in Week 2    Sat Sep 17, 02:34 PM

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates is expected to be much more involved in Week 2 versus the Jacksonville Jaguars than he was in the opener against the Kansas City Chiefs, according to ESPN's Eric Williams.

Footballguys view: We could see that happening now that WR Keenan Allen is out for the year. We see Gates as a low-end TE1 in Week 2 against the Jaguars.

  Chargers | Tyrell Williams poised to break out?    Sat Sep 17, 12:23 PM

San Diego Chargers WR Tyrell Williams is 'the prototypical big target that (QB) Philip Rivers likes to throw to', according to ESPN's Eric Williams.

Footballguys view: Williams is the players most fantasy owners should target -- especially those who lost WR Keenan Allen. He could be in line for a much larger workload going forward. In Week 2, we see him as a WR5 for fantasy owners.

  Chargers | Danny Woodhead the preferred back?    Fri Sep 16, 09:37 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon had six carries in the second half against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 1, and head coach Ken Whisenhunt said he felt packages with RB Danny Woodhead were more effective.

Footballguys view: We can trust Woodhead more in PPR leagues. Now that WR Keenan Allen is out for the year, Woodhead could see even more targets as the team's primary receiving back.

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers is a combined 80-of-108 for 962 yards and eight touchdowns with no interceptions against the Jacksonville Jaguars - their Week 2 opponent - over the last three seasons.

Footballguys view: Rivers had 300 yards and four scores against the Jags last year, and that was after Keenan Allen went out for the season. He's at least a good streamer, if not a low QB1 this week.
