  • Toomer piled up six tackles (four solo) and forced a fumble in Monday's loss to the Broncos. The forced fumble was a critical one as the Chargers rallied back from a 17-point deficit in the fourth quarter, only to have the game-tying field goal blocked at the end of the game. Regardless, it was a solid performance for the other inside linebacker, with his counterpart Jatavis Brown gobbling up most of the tackle opportunities (14 tackles Monday). Still, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better, under-the-radar option in IDP leagues, as Toomer will continue to patrol the middle of field while Denzel Perryman continues to rehab following preseason ankle surgery.

  • Chargers' Korey Toomer: Starts preseason contest
    By RotoWire Staff

    Toomer started Saturday's preseason contest against the Rams, finishing the game with one tackle. While the stat line wasn't eye-popping, Toomer's start Saturday likely means the 28-year-old is the front runner to fill in as the second inside linebacker, a spot vacated by the injured Denzel Perryman (ankle). While head coach Anthony Lynn refused to end the competition for the starting spot outright, suggesting to ESPN's Eric D. Williams that the job was, "wide open right now," all the preliminary information seems to favor Toomer. Both Toomer and Nick Dzubnar will have one more chance to impress during the team's final preseason contest Thursday against the 49ers.

  • Toomer registered five tackles (four solo) in Sunday's preseason loss to the Saints. Perhaps more importantly, Nick Dzubnar, Toomer's main competition for the other inside linebacker job alongside Jatavis Brown, failed to make a tackle on Saints' running back Alvin Kamara that led to a 50-yard touchdown run to begin the first quarter. That misplay drew the ire of head coach Anthony Lynn after the game, which gives further credence to the notion that Toomer is the frontrunner for a starting role. In 13 games last season, Toomer tallied 75 tackles and became a surprisingly reliable IDP option after the Chargers were besieged by injuries.

  • Toomer signed his restricted free-agent tender with the Chargers on April 4, Rickey Henne of Chargers.com reports. Toomer inked a contract with the Chargers last September and proved to be a key member of the team's linebacking corps. He recorded 75 tackles in his 13 games with the Chargers and is set to compete for a meaningful role again in 2017.

  • Chargers' Korey Toomer: Tendered by San Diego
    By RotoWire Staff

    Toomer has been tendered by the Chargers, Michael Gehlken reported on Thursday. Toomer was expected to return to the Chargers after a fantastic 2016 campaign in which the 28-year-old recorded 75 tackles in 13 games. However, with Denzel Perryman and Jatavis Brown already in the fold, and the potential re-signing of Manti Te'o (Achilles), the Chargers are suddenly deep at the inside linebacker position, making Toomer merely a name to monitor should any of the aforementioned players in front of him suffer an injury.
