• Younghoe Koo - PK
    Posted 9/18/17 3:43pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers PK Younghoe Koo will remain the team's kicker even though he has missed an important late-game kick in each of the first two games of the season, according to head coach Anthony Lynn. Koo has made only one of his four field goal attempts this season.

    Huddle Up: Owners will be able to find better kickers to use in their lineup and should avoid Koo in all leagues.

  • Dontrelle Inman - WR
    Posted 9/17/17 12:39pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Dontrelle Inman (groin) is officially active for the team's Week 2 game.

    Huddle Up: Inman probably will serve as the No. 3 receiver for the Chargers this week and could see a decent amount of targets. Inman could be a flex option in some fantasy leagues.

  • Keenan Allen - WR
    Posted 9/17/17 6:27pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen caught nine passes on 10 targets for 100 yards in a 19-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Allen has drawn 10 targets in each of the first two games, and he looks to have resumed his role as Philip Rivers' go-to option. He will be a WR2 candidate heading into a Week 3 matchup against Kansas City.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB
    Posted 9/17/17 6:18pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon had nine carries for 13 yards and a touchdown and seven catches for 65 yards in a 19-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Gordon's production on the ground was inefficient, even by his standards, but his heavy workload allowed him to finish with a decent stat line. He should continue to see enough touches to flirt with RB1 production against Kansas City in Week 3.

  • Antonio Gates - TE
    Posted 9/17/17 6:14pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TE Antonio Gates caught two passes for 11 yards and a touchdown in a 19-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 2, setting the NFL record for most touchdown receptions by a tight end with 112.

    Huddle Up: Gates has just four catches for 28 yards in the first two games. He could continue to be a presence in red zone, but he doesn't see enough targets to make a consistent impact. He can be left on the waiver wire.

  • Hunter Henry - TE
    Posted 9/17/17 6:33pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry caught seven passes for 80 yards in a 19-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: After being held without a catch in the opener, Henry flashed his TE1 potential against Miami. Antonio Gates poached a short touchdown, but Henry should do most of the heavy lifting. Consider him a low-end TE1 heading into Week 3.

  • Mike Williams - WR
    Posted 9/15/17 1:22pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 15, but has been ruled out for Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Williams probably will need a few weeks of practice before he is ready to play, so owners can avoid him until he is cleared to play.

  • Dontrelle Inman - WR
    Posted 9/15/17 1:28pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Dontrelle Inman (groin) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 15, and is listed as questionable for Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Inman was a full participant at practice this week and should be on the field for Week 2. He probably will be the Chargers' No. 3 receiver against the Miami Dolphins but should only be considered a possible flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Dontrelle Inman - WR
    Posted 9/14/17 4:12pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Dontrelle Inman (groin) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 14.

    Huddle Up: Inman should make his season debut in Week 2 unless he suffers a setback. He likely will serve as the team's No. 3 receiver and should have a solid role in the passing game. He could be a flex option in some fantasy leagues.

  • Mike Williams - WR
    Posted 9/14/17 3:37pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 14.

    Huddle Up: Williams is expected to miss a few more weeks because of his back injury and probably will have limited fantasy value when he does play.

  • Mike Williams - WR
    Posted 9/13/17 4:11pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 13.

    Huddle Up: Williams is expected to miss a few more weeks because of the injury and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

  • Dontrelle Inman - WR
    Posted 9/13/17 4:12pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Dontrelle Inman (groin) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 13.

    Huddle Up: Inman missed Week 1 because of the injury but appears to have a decent chance to play in Week 2. Inman probably will be the team's No. 3 receiver for the Chargers if he is active and could be a flex option in some deeper leagues.

  • Philip Rivers - QB
    Posted 9/12/17 3:37am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers threw for three touchdown passes and 192 yards in a 24-21 loss to the Denver Broncos on Monday, Sept. 11.

    Huddle Up: Rivers completed two-thirds of his passes, and only a missed field goal prevented the Chargers from tying the score and sending the game to overtime. Rivers showed his ability to lead comeback drives and find the open man. He ranks as a decent QB1 option, especially in weaker matchups.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB
    Posted 9/12/17 4:00am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon ran 18 times for 54 yards in a 24-21 loss to the Denver Broncos on Monday, Sept. 11. However, he also caught five of his six targeted passes for 25 yards and a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Gordon's longest run was 21 yards, but he didn't find the end zone. Granted, this was Denver's defense, and he will face some rough tests in the AFC West. In the long run, 54 yards against Denver doesn't rank as bad, so imagine what he will do against weaker run opponents. Gordon is a safe RB1 bet.

  • Travis Benjamin - WR
    Posted 9/12/17 4:12am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin caught three passes for 43 yards, including a 38-yard TD strike from Philip Rivers, in a 24-21 loss to the Denver Broncos on Monday, Sept. 11.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin's workload will only be limited because Rivers has plenty to work with in the offense. He only saw three touches, which suggests his performance in yardage leagues might suffer a bit. Scoring leagues is a different story. A quick strike like that will add up points, so make sure Benjamin is somehow activated in your lineup if you have a scoring league.

  • Dontrelle Inman - WR
    Posted 9/11/17 6:14pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Dontrelle Inman (groin) has officially been declared inactive for the team's Week 1 game.

    Huddle Up: Travis Benjamin and Geremy Davis will have bigger roles in the passing game with Inman sidelined, but owners should avoid both players.

  • Dontrelle Inman - WR
    Posted 9/10/17 7:36am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Dontrelle Inman (groin) was limited during practice Saturday, Sept. 9, and is listed as questionable for Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Inman will serve as the No. 3 receiver if he is active for the game and will be facing a solid Denver Broncos defense. Owners probably should look for other options since Inman is playing in the last game of the week.

  • Mike Williams - WR
    Posted 9/10/17 7:32am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) did not participate in practice Saturday, Sept. 9, and has been ruled out for Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Williams probably will miss a few more weeks because of his back injury and likely will not be a fantasy option until the second half of the season.

  • Dontrelle Inman - WR
    Posted 9/7/17 5:37pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Dontrelle Inman (groin) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 7.

    Huddle Up: Inman appears to have a good chance to play in Week 1, but owners should check on his status later in the week. He likely will serve as the team's No. 3 receiver but may not be a great fantasy option this week because he will be facing a tough Denver Broncos defense.

  • Mike Williams - WR
    Posted 9/7/17 5:31pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 7.

    Huddle Up: Williams is expected to miss the first few weeks of the season and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues for now.

  • Mike Williams - WR
    Posted 9/7/17 6:53pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) is currently 'catching balls, but he's not running routes full speed,' according to head coach Anthony Lynn.

    Huddle Up: Williams is slated to sit out at least the first few games of the new season, but it looks like he may beat his original timetable by a week or two. It is unknown how he'll fit into the fold right away, considering how much depth the Chargers have at wide receiver, but being the No. 7 overall pick from this past April's draft, he should have a sizable role at some point for the duration of the campaign.

  • Mike Williams - WR
    Posted 9/3/17 9:01pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) is still 'maybe a couple weeks away' from returning to practice, general manager Tom Telesco said Sunday, Sept. 3.

    Huddle Up: The injury will likely make it tough for Williams to make much of an impact early in the season, and you can leave him on the waiver wire in standard formats. He needs to be owned in keeper formats because of his long-term potential.

  • Mike Williams - WR
    Posted 9/2/17 11:43am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Saturday, Sept. 2, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Williams is still recovering from a back injury, so it is not known when he will be able to play. He may be eased into the offense since he missed training camp, which will hurt his fantasy value. He could be an option in the late rounds as a possible No. 5 receiver for owners.

  • Younghoe Koo - PK
    Posted 9/2/17 11:59am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers PK Younghoe Koo will be the team's kicker this season after they released PK Josh Lambo.

    Huddle Up: Koo made his only field goal attempt during the preseason, but fantasy owners should look for more reliable kickers.

  • Dontrelle Inman - WR
    Posted 8/30/17 7:47pm ET

    The Los Angeles Chargers have talked to other teams about the possibility of trading WR Dontrelle Inman, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Inman is coming off a solid 2016 season where he recorded 810 yards and four touchdowns. He could receive more targets if he is traded but probably would have a solid role if he stays with the Chargers. He probably can be considered a No. 5 fantasy receiver in most leagues no matter where he plays in 2017.

  • Philip Rivers - QB
    Posted 8/26/17 9:26pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers completed all six of his pass attempts for 85 yards and a touchdown in a 21-19 preseason win over the Los Angeles Rams Saturday, Aug. 26.

    Huddle Up: Injuries decimated the offense last year, but don't write off Rivers just yet. He could be a sneaky QB1 option still on the board later in drafts.

  • Keenan Allen - WR
    Posted 8/26/17 9:45pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen caught all five passes thrown his way for 45 yards in a 21-19 preseason win over the Los Angeles Rams Saturday, Aug. 26.

    Huddle Up: Allen has been one of Philip Rivers' top targets when healthy, and Allen had his number called plenty Saturday night. Yes, there are serious injury concerns, but he has enough upside to grab as a WR2.

  • Mike Williams - WR
    Posted 8/23/17 7:23pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) can run full sprints and is ahead of schedule, according to head coach Anthony Lynn.

    Huddle Up: Williams probably will miss at least the first few games of the regular season but could return at some point in October. He will be behind several receivers on the depth chart when he returns but could have a bigger role in the second half of the season. Owners could consider selecting Williams in the late rounds of drafts if they have the roster space to stash him until he plays.

  • Dontrelle Inman - WR
    Posted 8/23/17 7:40pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Dontrelle Inman (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Aug. 23.

    Huddle Up: Owners should monitor the situation to see if Inman is dealing with any serious injury. Inman finished 2016 with 810 yards and four touchdowns and has a chance to be the team's No. 3 receiver. Owners in deeper leagues could consider Inman as a No. 5 receiver.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB
    Posted 8/20/17 8:14pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon rushed five times for eight yards in a 13-7 loss to the New Orleans Saints in the preseason Sunday, Aug. 20.

    Huddle Up: None of the running backs who saw time Sunday managed more than 2.1 yards per carry, and Gordon's status as the lead back was never in question anyway. Efficient or not, the promise of a huge workload makes Gordon one of the safest RB1 options.
