Keenan Allen Note

Austin Ekeler Note

Ekeler suffered a Grade-2 hamstring injury and a hyperextended knee in Week 4 and has been placed on IR and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks. It's a huge blow for the Chargers and, of course, Ekeler. He'll go on IR, where fantasy managers should obviously find a way to stash him.

Hunter Henry Note

Henry dealt with an injury yet again last season, but he was productive when he was able to play. Playing 12 games, he had the most targets, receptions, and yardage of his career. The departure of Philip Rivers, however, will likely do no favors for Henry, as the veteran quarterback historically targeted his tight ends heavily. Although Tyrod Taylor targeted Charles Clay often in Buffalo, he's almost certainly going to throw the ball less than Rivers did, meaning Henry is likely to see a dip in targets. He should still be valued as a TE1, but his stock has dimmed a bit with the change in quarterback.

Mike Williams Note

Williams played through a hamstring injury in Week 5 and totaled 109 yards with two touchdowns. Fantasy managers may have been concerned that Justin Herbert wouldn't highlight Williams' skills, but that clearly wasn't the case. Move Williams way up your rest-of-season rankings.

Joshua Kelley Note

Kelley didn't get it done in his first shot after Austin Ekeler's injury. He played just 35% of the snaps and gained just 38 total yards against the Saints. The Chargers have a bye in Week 6 so fantasy managers will need to wait to see whether this was a one-off or a trend, but it will be difficult to trust Kelley going forward until we see both increased usage and better production.

Justin Jackson Note

Jackson shined in the first game without Austin Ekeler, totaling nearly 60% of the snaps and gaining 94 yards. He looked far more explosive than Joshua Kelley, and could be on the verge of taking hold of the Chargers backfield for the next several weeks. With Los Angeles on bye in Week 6, fantasy managers will need to wait to see whether this performance is sustainable, but Jackson should be added everywhere at the very least.
