    San Diego Chargers WR Tyrell Williams (shoulder) practiced in full for the third straight day Friday, Dec. 9.

    Huddle Up: He's not even listed on the injury report, so his owners won't have to sweat out his status for Sunday, as opposed to last week when he was a game-time call. Williams will be seeking to find the end zone for a fifth consecutive game, though while playing at less than 100 percent. As a result, it wouldn't be too surprising to see him crash back down to earth this weekend.

    San Diego Chargers WR Tyrell Williams (shoulder) was a full participant in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 8.

    Huddle Up: There should be no question Williams suits up in Week 14, especially after he was highly questionable this past Sunday and still managed to once again delight his fantasy owners with his fourth straight game finding the end zone. Williams has really blossomed into Philip Rivers' top target, making him a valuable commodity going into the fantasy postseason.

    San Diego Chargers WR Tyrell Williams has 21 catches for 307 yards and four touchdowns over the last four games.

    Huddle Up: He's sixth at the position with 18.9 points per game in PPR leagues over the last five weeks. The Carolina Panthers present a midrange matchup, and Williams is a low-end WR2 or a high-end WR3 this week.

    San Diego Chargers WR Tyrell Williams (shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Williams extended his touchdown streak to four games in Week 13 but was held to only two receptions during that game. He should be more involved in Week 14 and can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in leagues.

    San Diego Chargers WR Tyrell Williams (shoulder) is expected to play in Week 13's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Williams was a limited participant in practice Friday, Dec. 2, after missing two sessions earlier in the week, and was listed as questionable on the injury report. Although he played through a similar injury during his senior year of college, he should be viewed as a risky WR3 option this afternoon.

    Posted 12/4/16 12:29pm ET

    San Diego Chargers WR Tyrell Williams (shoulder) is officially active for the team's Week 13 game.

    Huddle Up: Williams has been targeted at least 10 times in three of the last five games and has at least 70 yards in each of those games. He has also caught a touchdown in each of the last three games and should be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

    San Diego Chargers WR Tyrell Williams (shoulder) took part in practice for the first time Friday, Dec. 2, and is hopeful to play in Week 13 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Williams also said he'll be '100 percent' by Sunday despite the fact he is reportedly dealing with a torn labrum, although there seems to be some question that is what he is really dealing with at the moment. Assuming the initial diagnosis is correct, Williams played through a similar injury in college. Given that information and a good matchup versus an undersized secondary, he should be considered a high-upside WR2 this weekend.

    Posted 12/2/16 12:53pm ET

    San Diego Chargers WR Tyrell Williams (shoulder) has been ruled questionable for the team's Week 13 contest Sunday, Dec. 4, versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Williams was able to get in a limited practice session on Friday after sitting out practice the previous two days, so that's definitely encouraging in terms of his status for Sunday. Even so, he'll be hard to trust as a WR3, however, as it appears he'll be entering this matchup at less than 100 percent. If he has to sit, Travis Benjamin will be worth deploying in all leagues.

    Posted 12/1/16 1:25pm ET

    San Diego Chargers WR Tyrell Williams (shoulder) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

    Huddle Up: Williams' status is starting to look iffy for this weekend after missing two practices in a row. If he misses practice tomorrow then he could very well be listed as doubtful. If Williams does sit then Travis Benjamin would be the primary beneficiary, which would make him a low-end WR2 to high-end WR3.

    Posted 11/30/16 2:35pm ET

    San Diego Chargers WR Tyrell Williams (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 30.

    Huddle Up: This was to be expected as Williams is dealing with a labrum injury. Williams' situation is a tricky one as the full extent of the injury is not known at this point. If he continues to miss practice then he'll be a risky start for Week 13, in which case Travis Benjamin would become a nice WR2 consideration against a mediocre Tampa Bay Buccaneers pass defense.

    Posted 11/29/16 4:33pm ET

    San Diego Chargers WR Tyrell Williams' (shoulder) right shoulder injury is related to a labrum issue. It's possible he might have to play with the injury for the duration of the season, though he did play through a torn right labrum during his senior year at Western Oregon in 2014. The full scope of his labrum damage is not yet known.

    Huddle Up: This is a tricky and unfortunate situation for the former undrafted free agent, as Williams was really settling in as Philip Rivers' No. 1 go-to target. In fact, the 24-year-old has accumulated a whopping 25 targets over the past two weeks, turning those looks into 13 catches for 195 yards and two touchdowns. If he's able to stay on the field, he can be a valuable piece for numerous fantasy postseason runs. However, if he has to miss any time, Travis Benjamin and Dontrelle Inman would each get a big boost. Benjamin should be owned universally, regardless.

    San Diego Chargers WR Tyrell Williams (shoulder) is feeling sore but is doing well after sustaining a shoulder injury in Week 12, according to head coach Mike McCoy.

    Huddle Up: Williams has averaged 9.6 targets per game over his last five games and has been targeted 25 times over his last two games. Travis Benjamin being at less than 100% is a factor, but Phillip Rivers clearly trusts Tyrell the gazelle. He'll continue to be an under-the-radar play as the Chargers continue to pass a lot in order to keep up with the opposition.

    Posted 11/27/16 7:27am ET

    San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) will play in Week 12's game against the Houston Texans, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin was listed as questionable on the injury report despite being a full participant in practice throughout the week. He merits consideration as a flex option in deeper leagues despite the somewhat unfavorable matchup.

  • Travis Benjamin - WR
    Posted 11/27/16 9:21pm ET

    San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) was active for the Week 12 game against the Houston Texans, but he was limited to one grab for eight yards on two targets.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin didn't do much, and perhaps he was dealing with ill-effects of his injury. He could factor in more prominently in Week 14 with Tyrell Williams leaving the game early.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB
    Posted 11/27/16 9:21pm ET

    San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon rushed 17 times for 70 yards in the Week 12 game against the Houston Texans. He added four receptions for 19 yards on his four targets. Gordon is 92 yards shy of reaching 1,000 yards for the first time. The last time the team had a 1,000-yard runner was RB Ryan Mathews in 2013.

    Huddle Up: Gordon has emerged as a must-start fantasy option this season, and is on track to be a slam-dunk first round pick across all fantasy formats in 2017.

  • Antonio Gates - TE
    Posted 11/27/16 9:20pm ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates did not have any catches and he was not even targeted in the Week 12 game against the Houston Texans, snapping his 77-game streak with at least one reception.

    Huddle Up: It was an ugly goose egg for fantasy owners relying upon Gates as a low-end TE1. There was no report of any injury, but if an update comes out we'll have it for you. He'll look to rebound in Week 14.

  • Hunter Henry - TE
    Posted 11/27/16 9:20pm ET

    San Diego Chargers rookie TE Hunter Henry posted two grabs for 20 yards and a touchdown on three targets in the Week 12 game against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: Despite this visit to the end zone, Henry remains more of a TE2 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 14.

  • Dontrelle Inman - WR
    Posted 11/27/16 9:19pm ET

    San Diego Chargers WR Dontrelle Inman (head) posted six receptions for 119 yards and a touchdown in the Week 12 game against the Houston Texans. He missed the end of the game to be evaluated for possible concussion, but he passed the test and was cleared. He is not in the league's concussion protocol.

    Huddle Up: Inman made the most of his six targets, and he could see even more responsibilities in the offense in Week 13 if Tyrell Williams cannot play due to the shoulder injury he suffered.

  • Tyrell Williams - WR
    Posted 11/27/16 9:18pm ET

    San Diego Chargers WR Tyrell Williams (shoulder) left the Week 12 game against the Houston Texans in the fourth quarter due to an apparent right shoulder injury.

    Huddle Up: Williams finished with eight receptions for 70 yards and a touchdown on a team-high 14 targets before departing. When we know more about his status we'll pass along the update. He has emerged as a solid WR3 in most fantasy leagues when healthy.

  • Keenan Allen - WR
    Posted 11/26/16 1:44pm ET

    San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (knee) recently started to work out on a treadmill and expects to be ready for organized team activities during the offseason.

    Huddle Up: Allen should be ready for the start of the 2017 season and probably will regain the job as the No. 1 receiver for the Chargers. He should be considered a No. 1 or a high-end No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues if he is healthy.

  • Travis Benjamin - WR
    Posted 11/25/16 4:16pm ET

    San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 25, and is listed as questionable for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin was a full participant during practice this week and should be ready to play against the Houston Texans. He has been held to under five catches in each of the last four games and has less than 55 yards in each of those games. Benjamin could be considered a flex option in deeper leagues because he should see be involved in the passing game.

  • Travis Benjamin - WR
    Posted 11/24/16 3:18pm ET

    San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) participated fully in practice Thursday, Nov. 24.

    Huddle Up: The warning signs are legitimate for Benjamin this week. He's missed the last two weeks with his knee injury and faces a really tough test in the Houston Texans. Don't consider Benjamin as more than a flex start.

  • Travis Benjamin - WR
    Posted 11/23/16 1:21pm ET

    San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) was a full participant in practice Wednesday Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Unfortunately for Benjamin he'll return against one of the better pass defenses in the NFL this year in the Houston Texans. If there aren't better options then start him, but he has risk written all over him this week between the matchup and the return from injury.

  • Travis Benjamin - WR
    Posted 11/22/16 4:32pm ET

    San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) returned to practice Monday, Nov. 21.

    Huddle Up: This is excellent news for Benjamin, after the former Cleveland Brown missed the club's last contest in Week 10, but it appears the bye week really did wonders for his sprained PCL. As long as he's able to keep trending in the right direction throughout the week, Benjamin should return to action Sunday, and he'll be a strongly recommended pickup for any leagues where he might be available. Benjamin is San Diego's best receiver with Keenan Allen (knee) out for the year, and was leading the club in catches, receiving yards and touchdowns prior to going down with injury. He still might be a little hobbled, though, which makes him a risky WR3 play for Week 12.

  • Hunter Henry - TE
    Posted 11/13/16 7:38am ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Hunter Henry (knee) is expected to play in Week 10's game against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Henry was a full participant in practice Friday, Nov. 11, after taking part on a limited basis in the two sessions prior to that, and was listed as questionable on the injury report. However, he won't have much fantasy relevance as long as TE Antonio Gates as healthy.

  • Philip Rivers - QB
    Posted 11/13/16 6:51pm ET

    San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers completed 23 of his 44 pass attempts for 326 yards, three touchdowns and four interceptions in the Week 10 game against the Miami Dolphins. His pick-six in the fourth quarter cost the team a victory. The four interceptions tied a career high.

    Huddle Up: Rivers put up good numbers for his fantasy owners, but his four turnovers took off a little luster from an otherwise solid stat line. Fantasy owners need to go another way in Week 11 with the Bolts on a bye.

  • Hunter Henry - TE
    Posted 11/13/16 7:29pm ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Hunter Henry had two grabs for 11 yards in Week 10 against the Miami Dolphins on two targets. He was able to find the end zone on one of his grabs.

    Huddle Up: Henry salvaged the stat line with the score, but as long as Antonio Gates is healthy Henry isn't worth using in most fantasy leagues. The Chargers are on a bye in Week 11.

  • Antonio Gates - TE
    Posted 11/13/16 7:29pm ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates posted four receptions for 63 yards with a touchdown in the Week 10 game against the Miami Dolphins. He was targeted nine times.

    Huddle Up: Gates was on the injury report with a knee this week, but when it was game time he showed no ill effects of the injury. People keep trying to write Gates off and all he does is produce. However, he won't be producing anything in Week 11 with the team on a bye.

  • Tyrell Williams - WR
    Posted 11/13/16 7:28pm ET

    San Diego Chargers WR Tyrell Williams hauled in five receptions for 125 yards with a touchdown on a game-high 11 targets in the Week 10 game against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Williams had a solid stat line, and he has emerged as a legitimate WR2 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. You will need a replacement in Week 11 as the Bolts have a bye.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB
    Posted 11/13/16 7:27pm ET

    San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon rushed 24 times for 70 yards in the Week 10 game against the Miami Dolphins while adding five receptions for 62 yards on eight targets.

    Huddle Up: Gordon was busy and the only player in San Diego to record a carry. While he was the workhorse Sunday, fantasy owners will need to make other plans in Week 11 with the Chargers on a bye.
