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

  • Larry Rountree: Cut from practice squad

    Houston cut Rountree from the practice squad Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports. Rountree is being replaced by fellow running back Gerrid Doaks on the practice squad. Last season Rountree handled a depth role in four appearances with the Chargers.

  • Larry Rountree: Joins Houston's practice squad

    Rountree signed with the Texans' practice squad Wednesday. Rountree was unable to make Houston's 53-man roster out of training camp but ultimately was able to stay with the organization. The 24-year-old will add depth to the backfield while the Texans carry Dameon Pierce, Devin Singletary, Mike Boone and Dare Ogunbowale on the roster.

  • Larry Rountree: Doesn't make cut

    Rountree was waived by the Texans on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports. Rountree joined Houston on Aug. 18, just a few short days after being let go from the Chargers. The Missouri product is a candidate to ultimately end up on the Texans' practice squad, according to Wilson.

  • Texans' Larry Rountree: Headed to Houston

    The Texans signed Rountree on Friday. Rountree, who logged 13 carries for 19 yards in four games with the Chargers last season, will give the Texans some added backfield depth behind Dameon Pierce and Devin Singletary. The 2021 sixth-rounder is now in a position to compete with Mike Boone, Dare Ogunbowale and Gerrid Doaks for slotting behind Houston's top duo.

  • Larry Rountree: Let go by Chargers

    The Chargers waived Rountree on Monday. With the 2021 sixth-rounder having been let go by the Chargers, the team's backfield is currently headed by Austin Ekeler, Joshua Kelley and Isaiah Spiller. Rountree, who recorded 13 carries for 19 yards in four games last season, will now look to catch on elsewhere as a depth RB option.

  • Chargers' Larry Rountree: Fighting for roster spot

    Rountree is on the outside looking in at the Chargers' 53-man roster, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports. Rountree projects as the odd man out if the Chargers carry three running backs entering the new season, with Austin Ekeler, Joshua Kelley and Isaiah Spiller expected to make the team. The 24-year-old made the roster out of training camp last year as the fourth back, but he was waived before the opening game of the regular season. He jumped between the practice squad and active roster throughout the season, and he seems likely to play a similar role in 2023.

  • Chargers' Larry Rountree: Earns another deal from Chargers

    The Chargers signed Rountree to a reserve/future contract Monday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports. Rountree was elevated ahead of Saturday's loss to the Jaguars in the wild-card round. He then reverted to the practice squad Monday after exclusively playing on special teams during this season-ending defeat, per the NFL's transaction log. The 23-year-old will now get another opportunity to carve out a bigger role heading into this third NFL season in 2023. Rountree has recorded 49 carries for 106 yards and a touchdown over the past two seasons with the Chargers.

  • Chargers' Larry Rountree: Elevated for wild-card round

    Rountree was elevated from the Chargers' practice squad to the active roster Friday. Rountree will join the Chargers for their playoff matchup against the Jaguars in the wild-card round Saturday. The running back garnered only 13 carries for 19 yards this season and likely won't have much of an impact on offense versus Jacksonville.

  • Chargers' Larry Rountree: Called up again Week 18

    The Chargers elevated Rountree from the practice squad Saturday for Sunday's game against the Broncos. Rountree will be elevated for the third week in a row to end the 2022 regular season. The second-year running back logged 10 carries for 15 yards and a 13-yard reception while playing 12 offensive snaps during garbage time against the Rams in Week 17. With the Bolts already locked into a wild-card spot heading into the regular-season finale (though the Bolts need to win to get the fifth seed in the AFC should Baltimore top Cincinnati), it's possible Rountree could once again see a healthy workload if the team decides to spare top running backs Austin Ekeler and Joshua Kelley from their usual number of touches Week 18.

  • Chargers' Larry Rountree: Reverts to practice squad

    The Chargers moved Rountree back to their practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log. Rountree played 13 of 64 offensive snaps and 10 special-teams snaps in Sunday's win over the Rams. He finished with 10 carries for 15 yards and caught his only target for 13 yards. Rountree logged more work than expected behind Austin Ekeler (28 snaps) and Joshua Kelley (23), though all his work came late in the game after the outcome was essentially decided. With that in mind, Rountree likely won't see this much work next week against Denver if he is elevated again, as the Chargers will be looking to set themselves up as the No. 5 seed in the AFC playoffs.

  • Chargers' Larry Rountree: Elevated to active roster

    The Chargers elevated Rountree from the practice squad to their active roster Monday. Rountree will presumably be active for Monday Night Football against the Colts after being elevated to the active roster. If he plays, it'll mark just his second appearance of the season. His last outing came in Week 10 against the 49ers, but he played exclusively on special teams and didn't record any counting stats.

  • Larry Rountree: Let go by Chargers

    Rountree was waived by the Chargers on Saturday. Rountree signed with Los Angeles' active roster Nov. 12 but has now been waived two weeks later. The move comes on the same day that the Chargers activated fellow running back Joshua Kelley (knee) from injured reserve. In his only game with Los Angeles, Rountree did not see an offensive snap and logged three snaps on special teams.

  • Chargers' Larry Rountree: Signs with Chargers

    The Chargers signed Rountree to their active roster Saturday ahead of Sunday's game at San Francisco. After joining the practice squad in September, Rountree will potentially make his 2022 debut in Week 10. With Isaiah Spiller and Sony Michel still in the fold behind Austin Ekeler though, Rountree does not have a clear path to touches right away.

  • Larry Rountree: Joins Chargers' practice squad

    Rountree has been added to the Chargers' practice squad, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports. Rountree was waived by the Chargers on Wednesday after the team signed Sony Michel, but the 2021 sixth-rounder is back in the fold to add further organizational depth to a Los Angeles backfield that currently features top back Austin Ekeler, as well as Joshua Kelley, Michel and Isaiah Spiller.

  • Larry Rountree: Cut by L.A.

    The Chargers waived Rountree on Wednesday. Rountree finds himself as the odd man out after the acquisition of Sony Michel, who will likely step into a sizable backup role behind Austin Ekeler. As a rookie last season, Rountree appeared in 12 games and rushed 36 times for 87 yards and a score. He was competing for backup slotting heading into Week 1 but struggled to make an impact during limited work in the preseason.

  • Chargers' Larry Rountree: Splits with Kelley

    Rountree started Friday's 27-10 preseason loss to the Saints and rushed six times for 12 yards and a touchdown while catching both of his targets for 12 yards. Rountree was the first Chargers running back to touch the ball with Austin Ekeler sitting out, but he didn't do much with the opportunity outside of a one-yard rushing touchdown in the second quarter. Joshua Kelley also mixed in early and totaled 41 scrimmage yards on seven touches, but neither running back seemed to create much separation in the battle for the No. 2 running back spot behind Austin Ekeler. That job could eventually go to rookie fourth-round pick Isaiah Spiller (ankle), but Spiller may not be ready to suit up for the Sept. 11 season opener against Vegas, leaving both Rountree and Kelley with the opportunity to seize a consistent role in a high-powered offense.

  • Chargers' Larry Rountree: Inactive Sunday

    Rountree (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Giants. With Austin Ekeler, Justin Jackson and Joshua Kelley all healthy, Rountree finds himself as the odd man out. The rookie six-round pick has 36 rushing attempts for 87 yards and a touchdown across 10 appearances this season, but as long as the aforementioned trio is healthy, Rountree is likely a nonfactor in all fantasy formats.

  • Chargers' Larry Rountree: Inactive versus Denver

    Rountree is inactive for Sunday's game against the Broncos. Rountree, who logged just two carries for five yards in Week 11, is the odd man out Sunday, with Justin Jackson, Joshua Kelley and Darius Bradwell candidates to provide support behind top back Austin Ekeler.

  • Chargers' Larry Rountree: First career rushing touchdown

    Rountree recorded five carries for 10 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 27-20 loss against the Vikings. Rountree scored a one-yard rushing touchdown near the goal line with 1:30 left in the first half. This marks the 2021 sixth-round pick's first touchdown of his career. Rountree has been utilized infrequently, primarily functioning in short-yardage situations. With Austin Ekeler recording a massive 47.5 snaps per game, Rountree's value will come if he is able to assert himself as a reliable goal-line back.

  • Chargers' Larry Rountree: One carry in win

    Rountree carried the ball one time for one yard in Sunday's 27-24 win against the Eagles. Rountree tallied just one of the team's 21 carries as Joshua Kelly took most of the backup workload. The rookie was unable to make the most of his singular carry, continuing to show his ineffectiveness on the ground as he has averaged only 2.5 yards on 29 carries over the 2021 season thus far. With Austin Ekeler back healthy and Justin Jackson (quad) set to return from injury in the coming weeks, Rountree will continue to see a minimum workload going forward.
