Los Angeles Chargers

AFC West


Chargers QB Justin Herbert completed 28-of-44 passes for 303 yards and tossed two touchdown and threw two interceptions in the Chargers Week 12 loss to the Broncos on Sunday. He also carried the ball four times for 36 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Herbert produced mixed results in this contest but put up solid numbers in the end. The Chargers offense is becoming very inconsistent and they need to right the ship soon. Herbert is starting to run the ball more, which gives him a solid floor. The upside hasn't been there lately, but we all know it's there. He gets the Bengals next Week where he will be a low-end QB1.

Chargers RB Joshua Kelley carried the ball one time for five yards and caught two passes for 15 yards in the Chargers Week 12 loss to the Broncos.

Fantasy Impact: Kelley operated as the primary backup for Austin Ekeler in this game. He wasn't very involved though and didn't do much with his touches he did receive. He's merely a handcuff at the moment and should be left on waivers.

Chargers RB Austin Ekeler carried the ball 12 times for 31 yards while catching six of his eight targets for 68 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers Week 12 loss to the Broncos.

Fantasy Impact: Ekeler churned in a solid fantasy outing on Sunday, despite the loss. Nearly another 100-scrimmage yard game and his eight targets were tied for 2nd on the team with Mike Williams. He caught a TD pass from Justin Herbert in the 2nd-quarter and was heavily involved throughout the game. He's a surefire RB1 next week against the Bengals.

Mike Williams quiet in loss

By Connor Rigg

Chargers WR Mike Williams caught four of his eight targets for 39 yards in the Chargers Week 12 loss against the Broncos on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: This was another quiet game for Williams after a solid game last week. The targets are there, but the results are just now coming like they were at the beginning of the year. It's hard to trust Williams as anything more than a WR3 at the moment. He has the ability to win you weeks, but his floor can lose you weeks as well. He gets the Bengals next week.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen caught seven of his 10 targets for 85 yards in the Chargers Week 12 loss to the Broncos on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Allen produced a solid game yet again and was Herbert's favorite target on the afternoon. After Mike Williams explosion at the beginning of the year, some were wondering if there was a shift in the teams WR1. We can put those thoughts to rest as Allen is clearly the WR1 on the Chargers. He will be a low-end WR1 next week against the Bengals.

Chargers TE Jared Cook caught two-of-five targets for 25 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers Week 12 loss against the Broncos on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Cook had the most targets out of all of the tight ends, but didn't do much with them. He did salvage his day by catching a touchdown late in the 4th-quarter. Still, he isn't extremely involved in the offense and the tight ends all play, so he isn't a full-time player. It'll be hard to trust him most weeks.

Chargers K Dustin Hopkins was 0-for-1 on field goal attempts and 1-for-1 on his extra point attempts in the Chargers loss to the Broncos on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Hopkins didn't get many opportunities in this contest but missed his only field goal attempt on the day. The Chargers will need to improve on moving the ball for Hopkins to have any fantasy relevant games. He shouldn't be rostered right now.

The Los Angeles Chargers D/ST allowed 28 points while giving up 302 total yards with one interception in their Week 12 loss against the Broncos.

Fantasy Impact: The Chargers defense got gashed by the run on Sunday allowing 147 yards to Melvin Gordon and Javonte Williams. They aren't producing many turnovers and can't seem to stop anybody at the moment. Now, they face a red-hot Bengals team in Week 13. They should be left on waivers.

Chargers RB Larry Rountree III carried the ball two times for five yards in the Chargers Week 11 win against the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact: Roundtree wasn't involved in the game and only came in to give Austin Ekeler a breather. He should be left on waivers unless an injury occurs.

Chargers TE Donald Parham Jr. caught four of his five targets for 38 yards in the Chargers Week 11 win against the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact: Parham should've had a touchdown early in the game but it bounced off his hands. He was more productive than his teammate Jared Cook, though. Parham is always a threat to score in the red-zone but his usage outside of that area is minimal. He is had to trust for fantasy purposes.

Fantasy Impact: Bosa's return will be a boost to the Chargers' defense as a whole. The team faces off against Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers on Sunday Night Football in Week 11.

Chargers running back Justin Jackson is questionable for Sunday with a lingering groin injury. (Source: ChargersWire)

Fantasy Impact: Jackson hasn’t played since Week 8. If active, he’d offer the Chargers additional depth behind Austin Ekeler.

Tristan Vizcaino didn't attempt a field goal and missed his lone extra-point attempt in the Chargers Week 6 loss against the Ravens.

Fantasy Impact: It was an awful game all around for the Chargers. Vizcaino missed the only XP on the day for the Chargers and was unable to get much going on the day. Vizcaino hasn't been able to get much going of late but will look to turn things around after the Chargers bye next week.

Chargers OL Bryan Bulaga underwent core-muscle surgery and is out indefinitely. (Source: Gilbert Manzano on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Bulaga was placed on IR after suffering the injury back in Week 1. The Chargers' offense continues to play well despite his absence, but his presence would've helped the unit even more.

Jalen Guyton caught two passes for 35 yards in the Chargers Week 5 win against the Browns.

Fantasy Impact: Guyton was not very involved in the Chargers win. That's to be expected though with Mike Williams, Keenan Allen, and Austin Ekeler dominating the targets. He should be on fantasy managers' benches next week against the Ravens.

Los Angeles Chargers cornerback Chris Harris Jr. is inactive for Monday Night Football against the Las Vegas Raiders. (Source: Gulbert Manzano on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Harris was limited all week with the shoulder injury but will be inactive for what could prove to be a pivotal matchup in the AFC West. He has not played since Week 1 due to the injury and will miss at least one more game for the banged-up Chargers defense. Asante Samuel Jr. will continue to start in his place.

Los Angeles Chargers star linebacker Kenneth Murray has been placed on IR with an ankle injury. (Source: Los Angeles Daily News on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Murray was a late addition to the injury report, popping up with an ankle injury on Saturday. The injury has been deemed severe enough to cause him to miss multiple games, so the Chargers have placed him on short-term injured reserve so they can make use of his roster spot. He will be eligible to return in three weeks, which makes Week 8 a potential target date. Los Angeles will be a little thin in the middle without Murray. Fantasy managers will want to look outside of the Chargers depth chart for a short-term replacement for their LB2.

The Chargers waived WR Tyron Johnson. (Source: Daniel Popper on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Johnson was competing for the team's No. 3 receiver role this summer, but he was surpassed by Jalen Guyton and Josh Palmer. Johnson could garner some interest on waivers, though.

Chase Daniel went 9-for-12 for 70 yards on Saturday night as the Chargers lost to the Seahawks by a 27-0 score.

Fantasy Impact: Daniel started Saturday's preseason finale with Easton Stick also getting a look. Daniel remains the favorite to operate as Justin Herbert's top backup during the regular-season opener against Washington on Sept. 12.

Easton Stick was 10-for-17 for 76 yards on Saturday night as the Chargers lost to the Seahawks by a 27-0 score.

Fantasy Impact: Stick split the quarterback duties with Chase Daniels on Saturday as the 25-year-old looked to make the final roster. Stick was not that impressive with just 4.5 yards per attempt and was sacked three times.
