Fantasy Football Player Notes

2020 PPR Rest of Season Rankings

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.

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.

Jared Cook Note

Cook's will miss Week 4 with a groin injury he suffered against the Packers. The severity is unclear, but given that he couldn't even muster a limited practice this week, his availability for Week 5 has to be considered questionable at this point. Monitor his progress, but make other short-, and potentially long-term arrangements.

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.

Tyron Johnson Note

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.
