Until Erickson finds meaningful playing time, Fantasy managers shouldn't bother adding him to rosters.

  • Chargers' Alex Erickson: Two more catches in loss

    Erickson caught two of his five targets for 29 yards in Sunday's 13-12 loss to the Chiefs. The 31-year-old joined the active roster Week 11 and, after injuries to Joshua Palmer (knee) and Keenan Allen (heel), somewhat miraculously emerged as the team's top target. finishing with 16 receptions for 232 yards, both of them higher figures than his past three seasons combined. It's safe to say the veteran wideout won't be a highly sought-after free agent despite the positive small sample size, but it's possible Erickson could at least make a preseason roster given his special teams acumen.

  • Chargers' Alex Erickson: Week 18 Waiver Priority List

    If the Chargers are again without Keenan Allen (heel) and Josh Palmer (concussion) then look at Erickson as a flier in deeper leagues. In Week 17 at Denver with Allen and Palmer out, Erickson had seven catches for 98 yards on eight targets. He appears to have a good connection with Easton Stick, and Erickson could be a useful option in Week 18 against the Chiefs if Allen and Palmer are out again.

  • Chargers' Alex Erickson: Breaks out with 98 yards

    Erickson made seven receptions on eight targets for 98 yards in Sunday's 16-9 loss to the Broncos. A slew of injuries to the Chargers' receiving corps opened the door for Erickson to secure a bigger role on offense in recent weeks. The undrafted Wisconsin product took full advantage of that opportunity Sunday, when he finished as his team's leading receiver across the board. The Chargers aren't getting healthier anytime soon, so Erickson should have another opportunity to put his skills on display against the Chiefs in Week 18.

  • Chargers' Alex Erickson: Secures two catches in loss

    Erickson caught both of his targets for 31 yards in the 24-22 loss to the Bills on Saturday. It appears as if Erickson has overtaken Jalen Guyton as the team's No. 4 wideout, a role that has seen more work in the two-game absence of Keenan Allen (heel). Despite the increase in playing time, the 31-year-old did very little, tallying just his seventh total catch this season.

  • Chargers' Alex Erickson: Signs with active roster

    The Chargers signed Erickson to their active roster Saturday. Erickson is joining Los Angeles' active roster for the third consecutive week. This move likely comes to ensure depth at wide receiver, as both Mike Williams (knee) and Joshua Palmer (knee) remain on injured reserve. In Erickson's two appearances this season, the Wisconsin product has caught two of his four targets for 29 yards.

  • Chargers' Alex Erickson: Moves back to practice squad

    Erickson reverted to the Chargers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log. Erickson was elevated from the practice squad for the third time this season ahead of Sunday's Week 12 loss to Baltimore. He had a significant role in that contest, finishing third among the team's wideouts in offensive snaps (34) while producing one catch for 17 yards on three targets. With both Mike Williams (knee) and Joshua Palmer (knee) on IR and No. 2 wideout Quentin Johnston dealing with a rib injury, Erickson has a good chance to be active again this coming Sunday versus New England. For that to happen, the Chargers would need to sign him to their 53-man roster.

  • Chargers' Alex Erickson: Joins active roster

    The Chargers elevated Erickson to the active roster Saturday. Erickson was called up from the Chargers' practice squad for Week 10 against the Packers and played 51 of 65 offensive snaps, which was third among the team's wideout corps behind Keenan Allen (61) and Quentin Johnston (56). This is the third time Erickson has been elevated from the practice squad, which means the Chargers would have to sign him to the active roster if the team wants him to play again after Sunday's contest against the Ravens.

  • Alex Erickson: Joins Chargers' practice squad

    Erickson was signed to the Chargers' practice squad Wednesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Erickson was a preseason standout for the Jets but was unable to make it on their final 53-man roster. He spent his first six seasons with the Bengals before spending the majority of 2022 on Washington's practice squad. The Wisconsin product will now look to adapt in Los Angeles and work to make an impression at practice.

  • Alex Erickson: Cut by Jets

    Erickson was released by the Jets on Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Erickson had an impressive preseason in New York, which included two touchdown receptions in the exhibition finale. Still, it was not enough to make it through final cuts and onto the 53-man roster. The veteran pass catcher figures to have suitors elsewhere if he does not end up on the Jets' practice squad.

  • Jets' Alex Erickson: Finds home with Jets

    Erickson signed with the Jets on Thursday. Erickson spent the 2022 season with the Commanders, though he appeared in only two games. He has served primarily on special teams across the last few campaigns, and his best chance to make the team could come as a kick or punt returner.

  • Alex Erickson: Released by Washington

    The Commanders released Erickson on Friday. Erickson made just two appearances, exclusively on special teams, for the Commanders in 2022 and signed a reserve/futures contract at the end of the campaign. However, he's been let go following a wave of undrafted free agent signings and will head into the summer as a free agent. The Wisconsin product is mostly known for his return prowess, as he's topped 200 receiving yards just once (2019) in his seven-year career.

  • Alex Erickson: Back on practice squad

    Erickson reverted to the Commanders' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log. Erickson served as the team's punt returner with Dax Milne (foot) out against the Giants on Sunday, gaining 26 yards on four returns. With Washington now on a bye week and Milne therefore getting extra time to recover, it's unclear whether Erickson will need to be called upon again Week 15 in a rematch with the Giants.

  • Commanders' Alex Erickson: Elevated from practice squad

    Erickson was elevated to the active roster Saturday. Erickson was called up to the active roster for the second straight week ahead of Sunday's game against the Giants. The 30-year-old receiver is expected to handle punt return duties with regular returner Dax Milne (foot) out once again.

  • Alex Erickson: Shifts back to practice squad

    Erickson reverted to the Commanders' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log. Erickson was elevated to the active roster and served as Washington's primary punt returner with Dax Milne (foot) inactive Sunday versus the Falcons. However, the practice-squad wideout would up with just two fair catches and no punt returns over his three special-teams snaps. Erickson also did not see any work on offense while running back Antonio Gibson handled kick-return duties Week 12. The 30-year-old receiver will now be eligible for two more elevations while with the Commanders' practice squad this season, and he could serve a similar role on special teams if Milne remains sidelined versus the Giants next Sunday.

  • Commanders' Alex Erickson: Set to take over punt-return duties

    The Commanders elevated Erickson from their practice squad to their active roster Saturday, Zach Selby of the team's official site reports. Washington needs a kick returner with Dax Milne (foot) ruled out Sunday against Atlanta, and Erickson's elevation could have him taking over punt returns, per Sam Fortier of The Washington Post. This is Erickson's first elevation of the campaign after handling both kickoff and punt returns while playing a minimal role on offense for Carolina last season.

  • Commanders' Alex Erickson: Shining this preseason

    Erickson caught each of his three targets for 44 yards in Saturday's preseason loss to Kansas City, leading the Commanders in receiving yards for a second straight week. Erickson has five catches for 90 yards on six targets, but he's been less successful in the return game and faces new competition there with RB Antonio Gibson now in the mix on special teams. Erickson, Dax Milne, Cam Sims and Dyami Brown are competing for what likely will be two or three roster spots at wide receiver, with special teams a big part of the equation. Washington's top three to start the season appears set with Terry McLaurin, Jahan Dotson and Curtis Samuel.

  • Commanders' Alex Erickson: Signs with Washington

    The Commanders signed Erickson on Wednesday. Erickson caught just three of four targets for 55 yards across 17 appearances with the Panthers last season, but he has proven to be a reliable punt returner during his first six NFL seasons. Washington also has Dax Milne and Curtis Samuel (hamstring) as potential punt-return options to replace DeAndre Carter, who signed with the Chargers this offseason. However, Erickson has the most experience, which will likely make him the favorite to win the gig heading into training camp.

  • Panthers' Alex Erickson: Catches one pass

    Erickson caught his only target for 13 yards in Sunday's 33-10 loss to the Dolphins. Erickson now has three games with a reception this season, getting involved on his only offensive snap Sunday. Despite his contribution, he holds minimal fantasy value most weeks.

  • Panthers' Alex Erickson: Active for Week 7

    Erickson (concussion) is active for Sunday's contest against the Giants, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official website reports. Erickson suffered a concussion during the Panthers' Week 6 loss to the Vikings, but he has cleared protocol and will be available Sunday. The 28-year-old wideout has been targeted just twice -- catching both for 42 yards -- this season, but he has been the primary punt returner for the Panthers during the 2021 campaign. With Terrace Marshall (concussion) inactive against the Giants, Erickson may see an uptick in offensive snaps Sunday.

  • Panthers' Alex Erickson: Returns to practice

    Erickson (concussion) was a limited participant at Thursday's practice. The wide receiver suffered the head injury in Week 6 versus the Vikings, ultimately exiting the contest and not returning to practice until Thursday. He still needs to be cleared by team doctors before suiting up against the Giants in Week 7. Used mostly as a return specialist, Erickson has only two catches for 42 yards in six games this season.
