Los Angeles Chargers

AFC West


The Los Angeles Chargers and center Corey Linsley have restructured their contract to create about $10 million in cap space for 2024 and assist in cap allocation if Linsley retires post-June 1. (Source: Field Yates on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Linsley (32) had told reporters that he was "99%" sure he would retire this offseason after dealing with injuries the last couple of seasons after a two-season All-Pro stretch. This reworked deal allows the Chargers to spread out the cap hit over multiple years, reducing its effects in the short term if Linsley retires. Linsley has appeared in 132 career games in 10 seasons, starting all of them.

Jim Harbaugh will accept the head coaching job with the Los Angeles Chargers, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Harbaugh is coming off his first national championship with Michigan since joining his alma mater in 2015. Harbaugh recorded a 44-19-1 record with the San Francisco 49ers from 2011-2014 and was applauded for his ability to turn around a struggling franchise. Fantasy managers should view this as a positive sign for Justin Herbert and the Chargers’ skill players heading into 2024.

Cameron Dicker made three of his four field goals in a 16-9 loss to the Broncos in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact: Dicker provided all of the Chargers' points in the low-scoring loss. He hit field goals from 36, 50, and 52 yards out. Dicker has now made 27 of his 29 field goals on the season, including seven from 50 yards out or more. He will kick against the Chiefs in Week 18.

Gerald Everett caught four of his nine targets for 31 yards in a 16-9 loss to the Broncos in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact: Everett's nine targets led the Chargers, although he wasn't able to do much with all of the opportunities. The veteran tight end has now seen at least eight targets in four straight games. He will take on the Chiefs in Week 18.

Keelan Doss caught five of his eight targets for 25 yards in a 16-9 loss to the Broncos in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact: Doss tied for second in targets in the low-scoring loss to Denver after he was just signed to the Chargers' active roster on Saturday. If Keenan Allen (heel) and Joshua Palmer (concussion) are both forced to miss Week 18, look for Doss to be in the mix again next week against the Chiefs.

Alex Erickson caught seven of his eight targets for 98 yards in a 16-9 loss to the Broncos in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact: Erickson led the Chargers in catches and receiving yards while finishing second on the team in targets. The veteran wideout benefitted from extra playing time thanks to Keenan Allen (heel) and Josh Palmer (concussion) both being unavailable for the game. Erickson will now prepare to face off against the Chiefs in Week 18.

Quentin Johnston caught three of his six targets for 29 yards in a 16-9 loss to the Broncos in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact: Johnston's six targets were the fourth-most on the team in the low-scoring loss. The rookie wideout has been quiet in his debut season as he will go into Week 18 with just 36 catches for 414 yards and two touchdowns.

Isaiah Spiller lost one yard on his lone carry and caught both of his targets for 10 yards in a 16-9 loss to the Broncos in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact: Spiller was quiet in the loss to Denver just two weeks after seeing 16 carries. The veteran running back will finish off his second season against the Chiefs in Week 18.

Austin Ekeler carried the ball 13 times for 46 yards and caught one of his two targets for four yards while losing a fumble in a 16-9 loss to the Broncos in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact: Ekeler's late-season slide continues as he's been held to one touchdown over his past seven games and only has eight catches in over the past three contests. The veteran running back will look to regroup ahead of a Week 18 matchup against the Chiefs.

Easton Stick completed 24 of his 38 passes for 220 yards while adding 31 yards on five carries in a 16-9 loss to the Broncos in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact: Stick failed to lead his team on any touchdown-scoring drives in the loss to the Broncos. The veteran signal-caller has now thrown three touchdowns in his four games this season, with all three of those TDs coming in the same game. He will be a QB3 in Week 18 against the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact: Grier has not played in an NFL game since his rookie season in 2019. It remains Easton Stick at quarterback for the Chargers right now, but it's possible they could give Grier a chance at some point in the next few weeks.

Jalen Guyton caught both of his targets for a total of 19 yards during the Chargers' 63-21 loss to the Raiders in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact: Guyton seemed to operate as the No. 3 wide receiver behind Joshua Palmer and Quentin Johnston. He remains off the fantasy radar, especially with Keenan Allen (heel) working his way back.

Joshua Kelley rushed for 22 yards on five carries during the Chargers' 63-21 loss to the Raiders in Week 15. He also caught his lone target for a gain of six yards through the air.

Fantasy Impact: Of the Chargers' three active running backs, Kelley was least involved, though it was promising to see him registering more than four yards per carry. Nevertheless, he's off the fantasy radar for Week 16 against Buffalo.

The 26-year-old Parham was limited in practice all week with a shoulder injury and will miss his first game of the season. The Chargers are also listing S JT Woods, DB Deane Leonard, LB Amen Ogbongbemiga and DLs Otitio Ogbonnia and Nick Williams as inactive.

Justin Herbert is having surgery Tuesday on his fractured right index finger and will miss the remainder of the season (Source: Daniel Popper on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Herbert suffered the injury in Sunday's loss against the Broncos. He won't return this year, which could have part to do with the Chargers having nothing to play for. It is a big blow to the fantasy value of Austin Ekeler and Keenan Allen for fantasy managers in the playoffs. It'll be Easton Stick undercenter for the Chargers the rest of the season.
