• Philip Rivers - QB
    Posted 10/14/18 1:24pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers went 11-for-20 for 207 yards, two touchdowns and one interception against the Cleveland Browns in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Rivers has thrown at least two touchdowns in every game this season but was not asked to do a lot in this game. He will be facing the Tennessee Titans in London next week and should continue to be a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues.

  • Austin Ekeler - RB
    Posted 10/14/18 1:32pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler rushed for 60 yards on seven carries against the Cleveland Browns in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Ekeler was not involved in the passing game this week but was still able to post solid numbers for fantasy owners. He should continue to be a flex option against most opponents.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB
    Posted 10/14/18 1:25pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon rushed for 132 yards and three touchdowns on 18 carries against the Cleveland Browns in Week 6. He also caught two passes for 18 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Gordon posted his second 100-yard rushing performance of the season and has at least one touchdown in each of the last five games. He should have some success against the Tennessee Titans next week and can be at least a No. 2 fantasy running back.

  • Mike Williams - WR
    Posted 10/14/18 1:46pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams caught one pass for four yards against the Cleveland Browns in Week 6. He also rushed for 10 yards on one carry during the game.

    Huddle Up: Williams has slowed down a bit after a strong start to the season and has been held to under 50 yards in four of the last five games. He could be a flex option in some leagues next week but can also be benched if owners have better options.

  • Keenan Allen - WR
    Posted 10/14/18 1:42pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen caught four passes for 62 yards against the Cleveland Browns in Week 6. He also rushed for 41 yards on four carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Allen saw a season-low six targets against the Browns but was involved in the running game in addition to the passing game. He should be a weekly starting option in all leagues and can be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 receiver in all leagues.

  • Tyrell Williams - WR
    Posted 10/14/18 1:37pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Tyrell Williams caught three passes for 118 yards and two touchdowns against the Cleveland Browns in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Williams has been fairly quiet this season but had a breakout performance this week. He has been targeted five times or less in every game this season but could be at least a flex option next week against the Tennessee Titans.

  • Mike Badgley - PK
    Posted 10/11/18 8:32am ET

    Free-agent PK Mike Badgley (Colts) signed an undisclosed deal with the Los Angeles Chargers Thursday, Oct. 11.

    Huddle Up: He's likely to kick in place of Caleb Sturgis (quadriceps) this week, but Badgley isn't worth a one-week play.

  • Philip Rivers - QB
    Posted 10/7/18 8:22pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers completed 22 of his 27 passes for 339 yards and two touchdowns in a 26-10 win over the Oakland Raiders in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: It was the second time that Rivers has topped 300 yards this year, and he has now thrown multiple touchdowns in every game. He's cruising to another QB1 campaign, but he could have his work cut out for him against a stingy Cleveland defense in Week 6.

  • Keenan Allen - WR
    Posted 10/7/18 8:30pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen caught eight of his nine targets for 90 yards in a 26-10 win over the Oakland Raiders in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Allen continues to see plenty of looks, and he has topped 60 yards in four of the five games. A lack of touchdowns is capping is value, but he's no worse than a high-end WR2 in PPR formats.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB
    Posted 10/7/18 8:26pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon rushed 19 times for 58 yards and a touchdown and caught four passes for 62 yards in a 26-10 win over the Oakland Raiders in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Gordon has been an efficient runner overall, but this game is a reminder that his massive workload allows him to post big fantasy numbers even when he isn't ripping off big runs. He's one of the safest plays at his position.

  • Travis Benjamin - WR
    Posted 9/30/18 6:45am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (foot) is expected to play in Week 4's game against the San Francisco 49ers, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin hasn't played since the opening week of the season and was listed as questionable on the injury report after logging three limited practices during the week. He is unlikely to receive many targets if he is active and should be avoided in all fantasy formats for now.

  • Keenan Allen - WR
    Posted 9/30/18 12:30pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (knee, tooth) is officially active for the team's Week 4 game.

    Huddle Up: Allen should continue to be the main option in the passing game for the Chargers and can be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB
    Posted 9/30/18 9:07pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon rushed 15 times for a season-high 104 yards and added seven catches for 55 yards and a touchdown in Week 4 versus the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Head coach Anthony Lynn stated he wanted to use Gordon more often in the passing game during training camp, and he hasn't disappointed in that regard, totaling 24 receptions for 199 yards in addition to 276 yards rushing. Averaging well over 100 total yards and 1.25 touchdowns per game so far, Gordon will be in line for overall RB1 consideration in Week 5 against an Oakland Raiders defense that gave up 253 total yards and three scores to the Cleveland Browns' backfield in Week 4.

  • Austin Ekeler - RB
    Posted 9/30/18 9:30pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler rushed eight times for 25 yards and added two catches for 21 yards and a touchdown in Week 4 versus the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Ekeler has seemingly established himself as the new Danny Woodhead, generally making the most out of roughly 10 touches per game. His 56 total yards in this one were a season low, but a 22-yard TD catch late in the second quarter made him a quality start for fantasy owners once again. Ekeler should be a fine flex option once again in Week 5 against the Oakland Raiders after they coughed up 253 total yards and three scores to the backfield of the Cleveland Browns in Week 4.

  • Keenan Allen - WR
    Posted 9/30/18 9:38pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen caught seven of his 10 targets for 63 yards in Week 4 versus the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Allen's fantasy owners figure to be disappointed with his final line against a shorthanded secondary and also with the fact he was held out of the end zone for a third straight week, but they should take some solace that his 24 catches and one touchdown after four games is exactly the pace he was on last season, while his 274 yards receiving are only 55 shy of the mark he had at the quarter pole in 2017. Bigger days are ahead for Allen, who needs to remain in lineups versus the Oakland Raiders in Week 5.

  • Philip Rivers - QB
    Posted 9/30/18 9:56pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers went 25-of-39 for 250 yards and three touchdowns to go along with one interception in Week 4 versus the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Rivers telegraphed his interception, badly overshooting Keenan Allen on a whip route that Antone Exum Jr. ran back 32 yards for a touchdown on his second attempt of the game. After that, it was business as usual for Rivers, who has thrown for three TDs in all but one game a quarter of the way into the season. The 36-year-old should post yet another fantasy QB1 performance in Week 5 as he draws a favorable matchup at home versus the Oakland Raiders.

  • Antonio Gates - TE
    Posted 9/30/18 11:10pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TE Antonio Gates turned five targets into two catches for 27 yards and a touchdown in Week 4 versus the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Before owners make a mad rush to pick up Gates, San Francisco basically let Gates have an entire half of the end zone to himself on his 5-yard score. He did get open on a corner route late in the first quarter for a 22-yard gain, however. Gates is going to be very touchdown-dependent moving forward, but many owners will likely need to consider him during bye weeks considering the state of the position in fantasy. All things being equal, he is a middling TE2 in fantasy.

  • Keenan Allen - WR
    Posted 9/29/18 5:04pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (knee, tooth) is expected to play in Week 4, according to head coach Anthony Lynn.

    Huddle Up: It sounds like Allen will be able to take the field tomorrow, but his activity may not be as effective as it usually is. Even so, he's a WR1 consideration in a favorable matchup with the San Francisco 49ers.

  • Keenan Allen - WR
    Posted 9/29/18 9:07pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (knee, tooth) is expected to play against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 4, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: While there is always some risk starting a player dealing with an injury, you have to start Allen against the porous San Francisco secondary.

  • Travis Benjamin - WR
    Posted 9/27/18 4:57pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (foot) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 27.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin has not had a big part in the passing game so far this season and probably will continue to have a similar role moving forward. Owners in all leagues should avoid Benjamin.

  • Keenan Allen - WR
    Posted 9/27/18 4:52pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (knee, tooth) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 27.

    Huddle Up: Owners will know more about Allen's status for Week 4 Friday, Sept. 27. He should be considered a No. 1 or No. 2 receiver in all leagues if he plays, but owner should have other players ready in case he does not play.

  • Travis Benjamin - WR
    Posted 9/26/18 4:20pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (foot) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 26.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin has missed the last two games because of the injury but may have a chance to play in Week 4. He probably will not receive a lot of targets during the game and can be avoided in all leagues.

  • Keenan Allen - WR
    Posted 9/26/18 4:16pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 26.

    Huddle Up: It is not known if Allen is dealing with a minor injury or if he is in danger of missing the Week 4 game. Owners will need to monitor the situation during the week to find out his status. He is a No. 1 or No. 2 fantasy receiver if he plays.

  • Travis Benjamin - WR
    Posted 9/23/18 5:43am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (foot) is considered a long shot to play in Week 3's game against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin was listed as questionable on the injury report but only participated in one practice session during the week on a limited basis. He should be avoided in all fantasy formats.

  • Antonio Gates - TE
    Posted 9/23/18 5:41am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TE Antonio Gates (illness) is expected to play in Week 3's game against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Gates was listed as questionable on the injury report but was only able to participate in one limited practice session during the week. Owners should be able to find better fantasy options.

  • Philip Rivers - QB
    Posted 9/23/18 10:59pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers completed 18 of 30 passes for 226 yards and two touchdowns against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Even with Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib sidelined by injuries, Rivers couldn't exploit the Rams secondary. He had his moments, but it was easily his worst game of the young season. Rivers remains a strong QB2 with appeal in the right matchups.

  • Mike Williams - WR
    Posted 9/23/18 11:15pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams had four receptions for 81 yards and two touchdowns against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: After basically red-shirting his rookie campaign, Williams is starting to emerge as a weapon for Rivers. He has three touchdowns in the last two games and should be owned in most setups. If he's still available in your league, go get him.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB
    Posted 9/23/18 11:05pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon carried 15 times for 80 yards and a touchdown during the team's loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Sept. 23. Gordon caught two passes for four yards as well.

    Huddle Up: Gordon looked like the Bolts' best player in Week 3, showing explosiveness against a tough Rams front. He was underutilized in the passing game, but that was probably a blip. Keep Gordon slotted into your starting lineup.

  • Keenan Allen - WR
    Posted 9/23/18 11:22pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen had three receptions for 44 yards in a loss to the Los Angeles Rams Sunday, Sept. 23.

    Huddle Up: Sunday marked the first time since Oct. 22, 2017, that Allen was held to less than 50 yards receiving. It was doubly disappointing when you consider both of the Rams' starting DBs finished the game in street clothes. Look for him to bounce back against the 49ers in Week 4.

  • Antonio Gates - TE
    Posted 9/21/18 1:48pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TE Antonio Gates (illness) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 21, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Gates probably has a decent chance to play in Week 3, but owners will know more about his status closer to game time. He has only been targeted three times in two games and should not be a fantasy option for owners.
