    Posted 11/23/17 7:18am ET

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

    Huddle Up: Benjamin had touchdowns in consecutive weeks to close out October, but he has a whopping one catch for 21 yards the last two weeks. The Dallas Cowboys are a midrange matchup, and Benjamin isn't much of an option in standard fantasy leagues.

  • Mike Williams - WR
    Posted 11/23/17 7:16am ET

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

    Huddle Up: Williams had five catches for 38 yards last week in what was his best game as a pro. The Dallas Cowboys are a midrange matchup, but Williams is more of a DFS bargain option.

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (abdomen) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 22, and is listed as questionable for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin has two touchdowns in his last four games but has been held to under 22 yards in four of the last six games. He can be a valuable option in fantasy leagues at times, but owners may want to consider other options this week.

    Posted 11/21/17 3:26pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) was limited in practice Tuesday, Nov. 21.

    Huddle Up: Williams saw a season-high eight targets last week and could be on his way to the Chargers' No. 2 receiving option behind Keenan Allen if he can stay healthy. Williams has the size and talent to achieve that, but he still can't be viewed as more than a flex right now.

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (abdomen) was a limited participant in practice Monday, Nov. 20.

    Huddle Up: After exiting Sunday's blowout win over the Bills, Benjamin may have put himself in position to return to action on Thanksgiving by at least getting in a limited practice the following day. Either way, he's such a volatile player to deploy in fantasy that he should really only be considered as an option for the most desperate owners in deeper leagues.

  • Philip Rivers - QB
    Posted 11/19/17 5:46am ET

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

    Huddle Up: Rivers was a full participant in the team's two most recent practice sessions during the week after clearing concussion protocol. He has thrown nine touchdown passes and three interceptions over the last five games and should be viewed as a low-end QB1 in most fantasy formats.

  • Philip Rivers - QB
    Posted 11/19/17 12:19pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers (concussion) is officially active for the team's Week 11 game.

    Huddle Up: Rivers was going through the concussion protocol during the week but has been cleared to play. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues against the Buffalo Bills.

  • Mike Williams - WR
    Posted 11/19/17 8:03pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams posted five receptions for 38 yards on eight targets in Week 11 against the Buffalo Bills.

    Huddle Up: Williams is slowly working his way more into the offensive play. He had two grabs last week after managing just two catches total in his first three games, and now this five-catch performance. Still, he is more of a wait-and-see player for fantasy owners, and he might not be able to help most in 2017.

  • Keenan Allen - WR
    Posted 11/19/17 8:03pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen rolled up 12 receptions for 159 yards and two touchdowns on 13 targets in Week 11 against the Buffalo Bills.

    Huddle Up: Allen made his way back to the end zone for the first time since Week 1 in Denver, and it was his first game with more than five catches since Week 2 against Miami. He remains a must-start fantasy option in most formats heading into Week 12 against the Cowboys on Thanksgiving.

  • Austin Ekeler - RB
    Posted 11/19/17 8:02pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler rushed six times for 40 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 against the Buffalo Bills and he added two receptions for 18 yards.

    Huddle Up: Ekeler has been carving out a nice little role for himself recently, although Melvin Gordon still continues to be the unquestioned No. 1 back. Still, Ekeler has proven he can be relied upon as an RB3 or flex fantasy option. The Chargers meet the Cowboys on Thanksgiving in Week 12.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB
    Posted 11/19/17 8:01pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon carried 20 times for 80 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 against the Buffalo Bills. He is now 10th on the franchise's all-time rushing yardage list.

    Huddle Up: Gordon has posted just two 100-yard games this season, but he has scored a total of five rushing touchdowns and four receiving scores through 10 games. He remains a bona fide No. 1 fantasy tailback even with Austin Ekeler seeing a bigger role recently. The Chargers travel to meet the Cowboys on Thanksgiving in Week 12.

  • Philip Rivers - QB
    Posted 11/19/17 8:00pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers completed 20 of his 32 pass attempts for 251 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 11 against the Buffalo Bills.

    Huddle Up: Rivers was a question mark due to a concussion, but he cleared the protocol and was able to pick up the win. With a blowout in the second half, he received a much-needed rest with Kellen Clemens steering the ship in the fourth quarter. The Chargers travel to meet the Cowboys on Thanksgiving in Week 12.

  • Travis Benjamin - WR
    Posted 11/19/17 8:17pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (abdomen) left the Week 11 game against the Buffalo Bills due to an abdominal strain.

    Huddle Up: The game got out of hand early and he might have been held out of the game as a precaution. When there is an update on his condition we'll pass it along. The Chargers have a quick turnaround with a game on Thanksgiving in Dallas.

  • Hunter Henry - TE
    Posted 11/18/17 9:38pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: Henry has TE1 upside, but there have been numerous games when he has completely disappeared this year. He will be an all-or-nothing option against the Buffalo Bills in Week 11.

  • Philip Rivers - QB
    Posted 11/17/17 2:06pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: Rivers appears to have a good chance to play as long as he does not suffer a setback over the next few days. He would be facing a solid Buffalo Bills defense but could still be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

  • Philip Rivers - QB
    Posted 11/17/17 5:44pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: Rivers went through the concussion protocol this week but was a full participant in practice each of the last two days and will have his normal workload. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in some deeper leagues.

  • Philip Rivers - QB
    Posted 11/16/17 1:03pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: If Rivers plays he'll be greeted by a Buffalo Bills pass defense that has been better than average in 2017. The veteran quarterback is a fringe QB1 if active, but have a backup plan in place in case he's a no go.

  • Philip Rivers - QB
    Posted 11/16/17 3:47pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: Rivers still needs to pass his concussion tests but appears to be on track to play this week against the Buffalo Bills. He has thrown for nine touchdowns and three interceptions over the last five games. Owners in deeper leagues could consider Rivers a low-end No. 1 quarterback if he is active.

  • Philip Rivers - QB
    Posted 11/15/17 6:30am ET

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

    Huddle Up: The Buffalo Bills present a midrange matchup, but Rivers hasn't been nearly as effective this season as he was in his prime. He's merely a desperation play this week.

  • Philip Rivers - QB
    Posted 11/15/17 1:09pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers (concussion) put in a limited practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Whether or not Rivers plays this week could come down to a game-time decision. It is promising, though, that he practiced at all after suffering a concussion in Week 10. Either way, have a plan B ready in case Rivers can't go, especially since he would be in a tough matchup against the Minnesota Vikings anyway.

  • Philip Rivers - QB
    Posted 11/15/17 7:30pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers became the eighth quarterback in NFL history with 4,000 career completions after his performance in Week 10 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. In the process, he also passed retired QB Warren Moon for eighth on the all-time list.

    Huddle Up: It's another notch on the belt of what has been a terrific career for the 14-year veteran, but unfortunately for his owners, this hasn't been the typical Rivers season. As it stands, the 35-year-old owns an 87.8 QB Rating, which is his lowest since 2007. Furthermore, he's averaging just over 250 passing yards per contest, his fewest in five years. Of course, with his consecutive games streak in danger due to injury, owners have to wait before deciding to deploy him in Week 11.

    Posted 11/13/17 3:40pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Rivers can participate in practice at some point this week. He would be facing a solid Buffalo Bills defense if he is able to play but could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in some deeper leagues.

  • Hunter Henry - TE
    Posted 11/12/17 7:29pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry caught one pass for seven yards in a 20-17 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 10.

    Huddle Up: Henry has disappeared the last two games, and he will be tough to trust as a starting option against the Buffalo Bills in Week 11.

  • Travis Benjamin - WR
    Posted 11/12/17 7:25pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin was held without a catch and ran once for 13 yards in a 20-17 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 10.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin has the speed to break some big plays, but he is an all-or-nothing receiver. He is better served as a DFS flier than a standard league option.

  • Austin Ekeler - RB
    Posted 11/12/17 7:05pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: It's too soon to call Ekeler the next Danny Woodhead for the Chargers' offense, but his usage is creeping up, and he could have flex value in PPR formats going forward. He needs to be owned in almost all leagues at this point.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB
    Posted 10/29/17 5:41am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (foot) is expected to play in Week 8's game against the New England Patriots, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Gordon was a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. Although he will be playing through pain and is coming off a lackluster showing in Week 7, he should still be considered an RB1 in all fantasy formats.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB
    Posted 10/29/17 9:00am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (foot) is officially active for the team's Week 8 game.

    Huddle Up: Gordon was limited during practice this week bur should receive most of the carries in the running game and could see some targets in the passing game. He should be considered a No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.

  • Philip Rivers - QB
    Posted 10/29/17 6:12pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers completed 17 of his 30 passes for 212 yards, a touchdown and an interception in a 21-13 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Facing a New England secondary that had been shredded most of the year, Rivers posted a lackluster final line. He still delivers the occasional QB1 effort, but his value is matchup dependent.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB
    Posted 10/29/17 5:59pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon rushed 14 times for 132 yards and a touchdown and caught one pass for seven yards in a 21-13 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Despite entering the game with a foot injury, Gordon had his best rushing performance of the season. Even when he isn't efficient running the ball, his huge workload makes him one of the safest plays at his position.

  • Travis Benjamin - WR
    Posted 10/29/17 6:26pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin caught five passes for a team-high 64 yards and a touchdown and had two carries for 14 yards in a 21-13 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin led the Chargers in catches, targets and yards in Week 8, but it was the first time since Week 3 that he recorded more than two receptions. He is still to inconsistent to trust in fantasy circles.
