After failing to score a touchdown last week, Gordon exploded for a three-touchdown performance against the Falcons Sunday. While his yards-per-carry (3.1) wasn't eye-popping, Gordon more than made up for it with his nose for the end zone, also doubling as an effective check-down option for Philip Rivers out of the backfield. Gordon continues to be touchdown machine, as he's racked up a total of 10 on the year after failing to find the end zone a single time during his rookie season. He'll face the vaunted Broncos defense next week.
This seemed like a mere formality after Weddle was unable to practice Wednesday. Darrell Stuckey will likely see additional work at free safety in place of Weddle.
Perryman was a major factor in the come-from-behind win Sunday, picking up a critical interception late in the game to force overtime and then stuffing a key fourth-and-one situation in overtime to give the Chargers the ball, which they then converted into a game-winning field goal. Despite leaving the game multiple times to attend to his nagging shoulder injury, Perryman nearly led the team in tackles and was a disruptive force all afternoon. As long as he's able to play, Perryman looks like he could be a decent IDP option when the Chargers travel to take on the Broncos Sunday.
Lowery set a career-high in interceptions (4) during his lone season with the Colts and was able to tally 76 tackles to boot. With the Chargers expecting veteran leader Eric Weddle to leave via free agency, Lowery is expected to take over his role at free safety alongside projected starter Jaheel Addae, although the team might not be done adding pieces to their secondary.
Williams was a healthy scratch in each of the Chargers' first two games. His release effectively clears room for the addition of TE Asante Cleveland from the team's practice squad and leaves San Diego with only two healthy running backs behind starter Melvin Gordon.
The special teams stud went down in Week 4 with a knee injury, but the specifics of which are unclear. DT Damion Square was activated to take his place on the Chargers' active roster.
With D.J. Fluker (ankle) also questionable for Monday's game, it's unclear who will get the start at either guard position against the Steelers, further clouting Melvin Gordon's fantasy value this week.
Benjamin didn't see as many targets as his teammates Tyrell Williams (10) or Dontrelle Inman (6), but the speedy receiver still managed to record his fourth-highest yardage mark of the season. That's even more impressive considering Benjamin's injury status heading into the contest, as the 26-year-old was questionable all week with a knee injury. He might have a tough time replicating those same numbers next week as the Chargers travel to face the Broncos.
By most accounts, Williams was one of the team's most improved players in training camp, so the injury is a big blow to the third-year pro, who had registered 31 tackles and one sack so far in the NFL.
Gates was relegated to a de-facto check down machine as the Chargers fell behind early in the second quarter. As a result, the tight end picked up a whopping 10 targets, tied for the most on the team Sunday, but Gates was unable to do much with them as the Falcons defense clamped down. While Gates saw just 38 snaps compared to Hunter Henry's 47, the 36-year-old still has the attention of Rivers and that alone provides some fantasy value, but likely not enough for owners to use Gates on a consistent basis.
Burse was a healthy scratch Week 1 and played just five offensive snaps Week 2. Griff Whalen was signed Monday to take over as the No. 4 wideout, with McCluster likely assuming a role as a part-time pass-catching back who can also line up in the slot if needed.
Hairston, 25, has started 15 games in the NFL with the Bills. The Chargers are looking for a swing tackle and offensive line coach Joe D'Alessandris has familiarity with him from his time with the Bills.
The three-year veteran has played at both the left and right tackle positions and will provide depth for San Diego along the line.
Williams was a major factor in the passing game, recording a career-high in targets and receiving yards against the overmatched Falcons secondary. While he may not be the No. 1 WR on the Chargers' depth chart, he certainly is the receiver to own for fantasy purposes, as the 24-year-old has recorded at least five targets in all but one game this year. Despite his success against the Falcons, fantasy owners may want to temper expectations next week as the Chargers travel to take on the vaunted Broncos defense which held Williams to just three catches for 28 yards in their last meeting.
Johnson underwent successful knee surgery Tuesday, but wasn't placed on injured reserve until Thursday, which has now officially ended his 2016 campaign. The 30-year-old receiver has played in eight NFL seasons and will likely have to prove he's still got enough left in the tank following a tough knee injury. The Chargers signed James Jones to fill in for Johnson at wide receiver to help provide depth behind projected starters Keenan Allen and Travis Benjamin.
Verrett required surgery after being diagnosed with a partial tear in his ACL earlier this week, and his recovery timetable will prevent him from taking the field again in 2016. Given that he did not suffer a full tear of his knee ligament, he could be back at 100 percent before training camp begins next year.
Herndon injured his knee July 30 and wasn't able to recover in time to make the team.
Ingram coupled with Joey Bosa to wreak havoc in the Falcons backfield as the duo combined for three sacks in the come-from-behind win. Both players lead the Chargers with four sacks on the season, but it's Ingram who presents a solid amount of IDP upside as he's on pace to record a season-high in tackles.
Slauson tore a pectoral muscle a few weeks ago and was ruled out for the season in late October. The move opened up a roster spot for Annen, who may be active Sunday if Martellus Bennett (rib, questionable) is unable to go.
Landrum is set to provide depth at outside linebacker for the Chargers in Atlanta on Sunday while Jerry Attaochu (ankle) is sidelined. Landrum, a rookie out of Jacksonville State, will be making his NFL debut.
Farrow continues to see the bulk of the carries when Melvin Gordon is not in the game, although "bulk" might be a severe exaggeration given the fact Farrow has recorded just four carries in the last two games. While Farrow remains a solid handcuff for Gordon owners, he likely doesn't present enough fantasy value to be rostered in standard leagues.
Lambo has been a revelation for both the Chargers and fantasy owners, as the second-year kicker has made all but one of his field-goal attempts this year. Lambo now ranks third in made field goals and extra points and will look to build on that performance next week at the Broncos.
Brown was a one-man wrecking crew, picking up tackle after tackle during the final two quarters of Thursday's contest. His sack with just minutes remaining the fourth quarter came at a critical juncture as the Broncos were driving for a late touchdown. Brown then followed up the sack with a terrific tackle on Broncos' wide receiver Demaryius Thomas which forced the ball to squirt out of Thomas' hands for a nearly game-clinching fumble. Brown will undoubtedly continue to start at one of the inside linebacker positions, but it remains to be seen whether Denzel Perryman or Brown will shoulder the defensive load in the coming weeks.
Williams obviously shared some chemistry with the backup quarterbacks on the night, as Philip Rivers did not play a snap, and he played the role of possession receiver in his impressive performance. The Chargers are relatively thin at the wide receiver position behind Keenan Allen, Travis Benjamin and James Jones, meaning that Williams could have a real chance of making the opening day roster if he continues to impress.
Palepoi was placed on the Reserved-Injured list, effectively ending his season. The undrafted player from Utah was one of the Chargers' biggest surprises last season, registering four tackles for loss last season.
"He's made the most out of every single opportunity he's had," Chargers coach Mike McCoy said. "He had an outstanding year last year, and it sucks to be honest with you."
Despite seeing 88 percent of the offensive snaps Sunday according to Pro Football Reference, Inman didn't factor in much statistically, snaring just three of his six targets. Still Sunday's catch total marks the first time in three games the 27-year-old has caught multiple passes. Given Inman's large snap count he still has some fantasy value, but it's anyone's guess as to when he might go off, making him a risky play at best.
Square missed the Chargers' first four games after violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. With the punishment served, Square is eligible to rejoin the team this week, however the Chargers will need to make a roster move in order to bring him on. The 27-year-old will likely provide some depth along the defensive line, but the lack of consistent snaps will not make him an appealing asset in IDP leagues.
There was hope that Woodhead had suffered a mere MCL sprain, which would have allowed him to return at some point this season. However, further testing revealed the precise diagnosis and its season-ending nature. Losing their second premier receiver in as many weeks, Philip Rivers will likely trust even more in Antonio Gates, Travis Benjamin, and Tyrell Williams in the passing attack.
Kaser was competing against Kasey Redfern for the team's punter roster spot. Considering the Chargers spent a sixth-round pick on Kaser it is unsurprising that he won the competition. The Texas A&M product was the first punter taken in this year's draft. He set a school record last year with 26 punts over 50 yards.
It was expected Te'o would be placed on IR after it was announced Monday, Te'o had indeed torn his Achilles. Former Raiders linebacker Korey Toomer will take Te'o's place on the roster, with rookie Jatavis Brown expected to take over as the starting inside linebacker opposite Denzel Perryman.
Hayward put together another solid performance despite the Chargers losing another member of their secondary, this time Craig Mager to a concussion. Hayward will continue to see plenty of throws his way as teams look to expose the near depleted Chargers secondary, and as such, might factor in his fair share of tackles.
Bosa became the first rookie in Chargers history to record multiple sacks in two of his first three games, as the first-round pick was able to take down Matt Ryan on two separate occasions Sunday. Bosa has made an instant impact for the Chargers, and is tied for the team-lead in sacks despite missing the first four games of the season. He'll face a Broncos team next week that just one week ago held him to a one-tackle, zero-sack performance.
Rivers and the rest of the Chargers offense was able to march up and down the field Sunday, recording a season-high in total yardage. Much to the dismay of fantasy owners, the mass amount of yards wasn't able to turn into many passing touchdowns as the offense stalled near the red zone, but it was encouraging to see Rivers put together another solid performance after being stymied by the Broncos defense last week. The 34-year-old quarterback will look to avenge that poor performance when he travels to face the Broncos next week.
Forced into action after injuries to Jason Verrett (knee) and Brandon Flowers (concussion), Williams and the rest of the beleaguered secondary held up about as well as you can expect. The 25-year-old likely shouldn't be a target for IDP owners unless he can see significant snaps on defense.
Flowers was able to practice on a limited basis Thursday, but that wasn't enough to convince the Chargers to activate the corner for Sunday's game, marking the fourth straight game the 30-year-old will miss with symptoms stemming from his Week 3 concussion. Look for Casey Hayward to get the start at corner once again.
Cumberland suffered a torn Achilles' tendon Friday during the Chargers' second preseason game against the Cardinals, ending his 2016 campaign before it had even started. When healthy, he'll hit the free agent market as an unrestricted free agent in 2017.
Barksdale spent the last three seasons with Rams, and started all 16 games, making one tackle in 2014.
Allen missed the final eight games of last season due to a lacerated kidney, so his torn ACL suffered during Week 1 Sunday unfortunately add another serious malady to his injury history. While the Chargers will be devastated to lose Allen once again, they're also accustomed to playing without him recently. Knowing that, expect players like Tyrell Williams and Dontrelle Inman should become more involved as receivers, while Travis Benjamin, Danny Woodhead and Antonio Gates embody San Diego's most proven targets at the moment.
A fifth-rounder in 2014, Carrethers appeared in 20 games for the Chargers and collected 41 tackles along the way. However, he has been a healthy scratch in each game this season and was subsequently waived in order to make room for the addition of CB Steve Williams.
With Oliver, who injured his Achilles during Sunday's preseason game in Minnesota now on IR, the Chargers' running back depth behind Melvin Gordon and Danny Woodhead takes a pretty tough hit. The team's current options on that front are Kenneth Farrow and Gus Johnson, but the Chargers could add another option in the next few days, as NFL cut-downs transpire.
Norwood, a 2014 fourth-round selection by the Seahawks, has been nursing a hip pointer since Carolina's fourth preseason contest. He's now eligible to sign elsewhere.
Whalen appeared to have made the Dolphins' 53-man roster following Saturday's final roster cuts. However, the Dolphins went on to claim former Titans' wide receiver Justin Hunter off waivers on Sunday, so they needed to clear a roster spot, hence Walen's release. He'll head to the open free agent market and could field some interest elsewhere from receiver-needy teams.
With Mager out, expect Steve Williams to see a starter's share of snaps at cornerback. Mager will enter the concussion protocol and will have to clear it before being deemed ready to play.
Bailey signed with the Chargers in early-August, but didn't see a minute of preseason action. The agreement removes him from the team's injured reserve list, leaving him free to sign with another team.
Since joining the Chargers near the end of September, McCluster has failed to fill the role that Danny Woodhead (knee) vacated thanks to season-ending injury, recording 35 total yards in five games. So long as Melvin Gordon continues to perform well, McCluster isn't expected to see enough time on the field to warrant any fantasy value.
Dunlap has spent the last two seasons with San Diego, starting all 16 games in 2014. In seven seasons, Dunlap has started 79 games for the Chargers and Eagles.
The details of Reid's injury are yet to be reported. Damion Square will likely see additional playing time rotating in behind Corey Liuget.
Carlis suffered an ankle injury during practice, but the severity or nature of which is undisclosed.
In the aftermath of Sunday's win in Atlanta, Henry experienced concussion-like symptoms and will thus be subject to a five-step process in order to be cleared for action. There's little doubt that his practice participation will be impacted this week, but every head injury is its own test case, so the release of Wednesday's injury report will be one to examine closely. If he requires time to recover, veteran Antonio Gates will chew up the majority of TE snaps Sunday at Denver.
The others are wide receiver Seyi Ajirotutu (hamstring), tackle D.J. Fluker (knee), defensive ends Corey Liuget (shin) and Lawrence Guy (toe), center Nick Hardwick (neck) and long snapper Mike Windt (ankle).
The details of his injury remain unclear. Nonetheless, Petteway is now eligible to join another organization.
McCoil, starting in place of the injured Jahleel Addae (broken collarbone), played admirably, picking up a handful of tackles. While backup safety Adrian Phillips recorded one of two interceptions by the Chargers secondary Sunday, McCoil was able to record more snaps. Neither McCoil nor Phillips look to be entirely reliable options in IDP leagues, but both could have their moments in the coming weeks.
“You just don’t plug a guy in and figure he’s going to fill [Hardwick’s] shoes right away,” general manager Tom Telesco said. “We’re happy with the guys we have, but no one is going to walk in and be Nick Hardwick on Day 1. And we’re not asking them to do that.”
Offensive line coach Joe D'Alessandris said he's looking forward to watching Watt develop.
"I think he has a lot of great qualities as an offensive lineman," D'Alessandris said. "He’s got a good mind. He wants to grow. He’s a sponge. He wants to absorb and learn.”
Lissemore was looking to rebound from a poor 2015 season in which he managed to play in just 11 games, tallying 16 tackles. While the 28-year-old was not expected to start this season, the injury will tax the Chargers depth along the defensive line, forcing unheralded players such as Ryan Carrethers or Chuka Ndulue to receive additional snaps on the defensive front.
Attaochu couldn't practice this week and wasn't expected to suit up. Tourek Williams is likely in line for additional snaps at outside linebacker.
Addae's status appears to be on the upswing for next week's contest, as the safety was able to practice with the Chargers on Thursday, albeit on a limited basis. For this week, however, Adrian Phillips is expected to get the start in place of Addae.
Per the report, Mebane's three-year deal with the Chargers is worth up to $13.5 million. The veteran nose tackle -- who recorded 24 tackles and 1.5 sacks for Seattle in 15 games last season -- isn't much of an IDP factor, but he'll provide a welcome boost to the Chargers' defense in terms of his ability as a run-stuffer.
With Joey Bosa continuing his holdout, Philon has stepped in and performed well during first-team reps. While the second-year pro will likely take a back seat once Bosa arrives to camp, it appears as if Philon has likely worked his way into San Diego's defensive line rotation and should see an increase in snaps heading into the 2016 season.
With starting tight end Antonio Gates considered doubtful to play on Sunday, the Chargers' evidently felt they needed more help at the tight end position, waiving RB Andre Williams to make room. If Gates is ultimately ruled out, Cleveland will slot in behind Hunter Henry and Sean McGrath on the tight end depth chart.
Johnnie Troutman, who is in his third season in the NFL out of Penn State, is listed as Fluker's backup on the unofficial depth chart.
Clemens relieved starting QB Philip Rivers midway through the second quarter and promptly was unable to generate much offense. Despite his struggles, the 33-year-old appears to have a handle on the backup job, as his main competition for the role, Mike Bercovici, threw two interceptions during his stint in the second half.
Wiggins played the last two seasons with San Diego. Miller, who was claimed in the spring, has played in just two NFL games over five seasons. He has yet to catch a pass.
