Dontrelle Inman being shopped?

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero is reporting the Los Angeles Chargers are trying to trade wide receiver Dontrelle Inman.

Fantasy Impact

With a healthy Keenan Allen and Travis Benjamin, plus, the return of Tyrell Williams and the addition of the recovering Mike Williams, the Chargers are flooded at the wide receiver position. Inman appears to be the odd man out. Although he isn't expected to be much of a factor in Los Angeles, he is coming off of a career year in which he accumulated a 58-810-4 stat line and could be effective on a wide reiver-needy team if he is indeed dealt. If the Chargers can't find a willing partner, Inman could ultimately be released during final roster cuts.

Dontrelle Inman undergoes surgery

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Dontrelle Inman (core) underwent surgery to repair a core muscle injury and will miss at least the net six weeks of football activities as a result.

Fantasy Impact

Inman, who underwent went core muscle surgery Friday, will miss the next six weeks of football activities. That puts the 28-year-old wideout on track for a training camp return in late July, barring a setback in his recovery. In the wake of Los Angeles selecting Mike Williams in the first round of April's draft, Inman's role on the team is in question for the upcoming season. He'll likely open the year as the Chargers' No. 4 wideout, all but depleting his fantasy value to nothing unless an injury occurs to one of the players slated ahead of him on the depth chart.

Dontrelle Inman signs tender

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Dontrelle Inman signed his RFA tender Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

The Chargers have brought back Inman on a one-year deal on Tuesday. The 28-year-old wideout is coming off of a solid 2016 season in which he accumulated career highs in receptions (58), yards receiving (810), touchdowns (four) and YPC (14.0). However, his numbers could be inflated due to the absence of Keenan Allen, who missed all but a quarter of the entire 2016 campaign with a torn ACL. Inman is projected to open the upcoming season third on the wide receiver depth chart, which could limit his fantasy football value, especially with the presence of Allen, Tyrell Williams, Antonio Gates and Hunter Henry in the passing game.

Dontrelle Inman disappoints against the Browns

Dontrelle Inman caught just three of 10 targets for 44 yards on Saturday against the Browns.

Fantasy Impact

Inman was a popular sleeper heading into Saturday's game, but was overshadowed by almost every other receiving option for the Chargers. Although the targets are consistently there, Inman's production is not, and he can't be trusted next week against the Chiefs.

Dontrelle Inman with five catches against the Raiders

Dontrelle Inman hauled in five of eight targets for 68 yards on Sunday against the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact

It was the first time in four games that Inman was held out of the end zone, but he continued to show that he is an integral part of the Chargers' offense. Inman will be a solid WR2 against the Browns next week.
