Inman caught two of his five targets for 49 yards and a touchdown in the loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday. While Inman caught his second touchdown in as many weeks, his performance wasn't exactly eye-popping despite seeing the highest number of targets among his fellow receivers. Much of that could be attributed to Philip Rivers' general ineffectiveness, as the quarterback managed to complete just over 50 percent of his passes on the afternoon. For the moment, Inman appears to be one of the top targets to own within the Chargers' passing attack and should have a favorable matchup against the Panthers next week.
Though Inman missed the end of Sunday's win over the Texans while being evaluated for a possible concussion, he was subsequently cleared, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Inman -- who caught six passes for 119 yards and a TD on Sunday -- will thus avoid entering the NFL's concussion protocol and is on track to suit up next week against the Bucs. Meanwhile, fellow wideout Tyrell Williams, who was targeted 14 times in the game, is dealing with an apparent right shoulder injury.
Inman may have sustained a concussion during Sunday's win over the Texans, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Though Inman's status is now worth watching as Week 13 approaches, the wideout helped out fantasy owners Sunday by hauling in six passes for 119 yards and a TD.
Inman caught five of his nine targets for 43 yards in the loss to the Dolphins on Sunday. Inman wasn't able to capitalize on the increase in targets with Travis Benjamin (sidelined) Sunday, as the 27-year-old managed to record less than 50 receiving yards for the first time in four weeks. With Benjamin expected to be healthy following the team's Week 11 bye, fantasy owners may want to wait and see what Inman's role will be within the offense before using him in their lineups.
Inman could see an increase in targets if Travis Benjamin (knee), who is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game, is indeed ruled out. Inman has seen a meteoric rise in targets as of late, earning at least six targets in each of the past three games. Not surprisingly, Inman has totaled 13 catches for 186 yards during that stretch, and could be primed for another solid outing against a shaky Dolphins pass defense. While he's only seen three red zone targets all season, his consistent play as of late could make him a solid flex option in fantasy lineups, particularly if Benjamin is held out of Sunday's contest as expected.
