  Chargers | Mike Williams expected to miss time    Fri Nov 24, 11:31 AM

Updating previous reports, Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) will have an MRI on his knee Friday, Nov. 24, but he's expected to miss time.

Footballguys view: A back injury has limited Williams, a top-10 pick in the 2017 NFL draft, to just six games this year and now this knee injury should once again shorten his rookie season. The Chargers have real concern, but they believe his ACL isn't compromised.

  Chargers | Mike Williams will not return    Thu Nov 23, 06:39 PM

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) will not be able to return to the team's Week 12 game because of the knee injury he suffered during the game.

Footballguys view: It was seeming like Williams was finally getting in sync with Philip Rivers, so this is disappointing. Hopefully it's not too bad, but as he was battling a knee issue coming into the game, we're concerned.

Footballguys view: Williams has struggled with a bad back already this season and came into the game with a knee issue. He only just seemed to be getting into a groove with Philip Rivers, so this is disappointing. We're hoping he's not too badly hurt.

  Chargers | Travis Benjamin likely to go    Thu Nov 23, 10:18 AM

Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (abdomen) is expected to play Thursday, Nov. 23, against the Dallas Cowboys.

Footballguys view: Like Mike Williams, Benjamin could benefit from the extra attention Keenan Allen will get coming off a big game last week. However, Benjamin had just one target last week and one inadvertent carry on a busted play, so he's an even shakier option than Williams is. We'd avoid him.

  Chargers | Mike Williams expected to play    Thu Nov 23, 10:16 AM

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) is expected to play Thursday, Nov. 23, against the Dallas Cowboys.

Footballguys view: While he saw an uptick in targets last week, we're not sure just what to expect from him week to week. It's a risky play, especially in a mid-week game. That said, he saw two red zone targets last week and the Cowboys will be marking Keenan Allen after Allen's big game last week. He might work as a flier, but we still feel there are safer options later in the week.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers (concussion) is expected to start Week 11's game against the Buffalo Bills.

  Chargers | Hunter Henry needs the ball    Sun Nov 19, 12:38 AM

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry helps the offense flow better when he is involved, according to head coach Anthony Lynn, and Lynn said they need to make it a priority to give Henry the ball more consistently.

Footballguys view: That's a great sentiment, but fantasy owners have been burned by Henry too often this year to trust him until he has another outburst.

  Chargers | Braedon Bowman added to practice squad    Sat Nov 18, 03:10 PM

The Los Angeles Chargers signed TE Braedon Bowman to their practice squad Friday, Nov. 17.

Footballguys view: Undrafted out of South Alabama in 2016, Bowman has bounced around to four different teams so far as a pro. He plays like a super-sized wide receiver and can attack the deep middle seam of a defense. Even in the deepest of deep dynasty leagues, Bowman is a long shot to do much of anything in the NFL.

  Chargers | Philip Rivers cleared    Fri Nov 17, 08:44 PM

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers (concussion) has been cleared to play in the team's Week 11 game by an independent neurologist.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers (concussion) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 17, and is listed as questionable for Week 11.

  Chargers | Full practice for Philip Rivers    Thu Nov 16, 06:47 PM

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers (concussion) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

Footballguys view: That's great news not just for Rivers owners, but those who own pieces of the rest of the offense as well. Rivers is a very good QB2 option this week and has some upside if Buffalo implodes like it did in week 10.

  Chargers | Philip Rivers remains limited, could play     Thu Nov 16, 04:03 PM

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers (concussion) has not cleared the concussion protocol and was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 16. Head coach Anthony Lynn believes Rivers will play this weekend, but that decision is up to the team doctors.

Footballguys view: If Rivers cannot go, Cardale Jones is the guy so we're pretty sure Lynn is going to push Rivers to play if he can clear protocol. It's getting late in the week for that, though. As much as he has been shaky this year, Rivers is a much better option for the offense and will not weigh down the production expectation of the rest of the offense like Jones would.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers (concussion) has given encouraging signs on his progress through the concussion protocol, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Rivers has never been diagnosed with a concussion during his pro career. He'll continue through the protocol, and we'll be watching to see what his practice status is on Friday. At this point, it looks like he'll be on the field against the Bills in Week 11.

  Chargers | Austin Ekeler doing a lot with a little    Tue Nov 14, 10:31 PM

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler is tied for 33rd among running backs in yards from scrimmage (184) since Week 7 - the same time he went from primarily special teams player to one participating in roughly a third of the team's offensive plays - and tied for fifth among running backs with three total touchdowns despite logging only 31 offensive touches (19 carries) over that time.

Footballguys view: Ekeler needs to hang onto the rock, but he's certainly flashed the ability to make plays at the pro level. A DII prospect from Western State (Colorado), Ekeler is a compact runner with the quickness to make defenders miss in tight spaces.

  Chargers | Philip Rivers in concussion protocol    Mon Nov 13, 06:40 PM

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers (concussion) is going through the concussion protocol, according to head coach Anthony Lynn.

Footballguys view: This came a bit out of nowhere as Rivers was not examined for a concussion in the game on Sunday. The team has a game at home against Buffalo in Week 11. If Rivers can't go, then we'd see Kellen Clemens as the team's starter.

  Chargers | Austin Ekeler breaks out    Sun Nov 12, 10:05 PM

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler ran 10 times for 42 yards and a fumble and caught five passes for 77 yards and two touchdowns in a 20-17 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 10.

Footballguys view: Ekeler had a big fumble in the fourth quarter, and never saw the field again. Melvin Gordon struggled, and if that happens again, Ekeler may not spend much time in the dog house. At the very least he should be owned by Gordon's owners, but if you have room on your roster, he could have value down the stretch all on his own.

  Chargers | No running room for Melvin Gordon    Sun Nov 12, 09:53 PM

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon ran 16 times for 27 yards and caught five passes for 15 yards in a 20-17 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 10.

Footballguys view: Meanwhile, Austin Ekeler ran the ball for 42 yards and caught all his targets for a total of 77 yards plus two touchdowns. He had a fumble late and never really got another chance to contribute. He may permanently be in the doghouse, but he should be owned in all leagues in case he comes back out. He certainly looked better than Gordon until that fumble happened.
