Chargers' Casey Hayward: Career low in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward piled together 32 tackles, eight passes defended and two interceptions over the course of 16 games this season.

After a 2018 season in which Hayward failed to pick up a single interception, the veteran managed to accumulate two despite a down season overall from the Chargers. Just 32 tackles across 16 games is easily a career worst for Hayward, but it emphasizes how little he was targeted throughout the season compared to the likes of Michael Davis and Brandon Facyson, who both took turns as the No. 2 corner for portions of the year.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Interception on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward recorded two tackles, three passes defensed and an interception across 79 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Bears.

Hayward snagged his second interception of the season after a 2018 campaign in which he did not record any. The veteran has played in 98 percent of the team's defensive snaps this year. He will now shift his focus to Aaron Rodgers and the Packers' high-powered offense when Green Bay comes to town Sunday.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Active versus Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward (back) is active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Hayward wasn't able to practice all week due to a back issue, but he'll ultimately take the field Week 4 versus Miami. The shutdown cornerback has played every snap on defense for the Chargers this season.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Questionable vs. Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Hayward was held out of practice this week due to a back injury. It remains unclear when he suffered it, as the cornerback has played every single snap for the Chargers so far this season. It looks like Hayward may end up being a game-time call this weekend.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Managing back injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward did not practice Wednesday because of a back injury.

Hayward has played 100 percent of snaps on defense in each of the Chargers' three games this season. The severity of his back issue remains undisclosed. If the shutdown corner were to miss any time, Desmond King would likely slot into the starting lineup.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Gets first INT since 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward picked up three tackles (one solo) and an interception in the 13-10 loss Sunday to the Lions.

The Pro Bowl cornerback registered his first interception since 2017, catching a deflected pass to Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay for the turnover. Hayward has been a rock in the Chargers' secondary since joining the team in 2016, playing every game while recording at least 40 tackles in each season. However his deserved reputation as a shutdown corner has made him a difficult option in fantasy leagues which reward tackles, especially considering Hayward's inability to create turnovers on a consistent basis.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Unable to replicate 2017 season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward finished the 2018 campaign with 46 tackles (41 solo) and eight pass deflections across 16 games.

More notably, Hayward did not record a single interception all season, marking only the third time in his seven-year career and first time with the Chargers he's failed to pick off a pass during a given campaign. While the 29-year-old certainly would have liked to have recorded more turnovers, it's difficult to do that when the opponent isn't throwing the ball near him, as opposing QBs attempted just 63 passes to Hayward's side of the field in 2018. Part of a deep and talented secondary, Hayward shouldn't be on many people's radars in terms of fantasy next season, but his role as a shutdown corner is invaluable to the likes of Desmond King, Derwin James and Adrian Phillips, who all thrived in their respective roles this year.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Does not play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward (hamstring) didn't play in Saturday's preseason loss to the Saints, Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Hayward wasn't expected to play Saturday after injuring his hamstring earlier in the week, but the All-Pro cornerback will likely be ready for the official start of the 2018 campaign against the Chiefs in two weeks. Arguably one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL, Hayward's reputation actually makes him an unreliable IDP candidate, as teams tend to avoid throwing in the 28-year-old's direction.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: May have injured hamstring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward left Tuesday's practice with an apparent hamstring injury, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.

While covering teammate Mike Williams on a go route, Hayward pulled up and grabbed at his hamstring. Since signing with the Chargers during the 2016 offseason, Hayward has put together back-to-back second-team All-Pro campaigns, accumulating 98 tackles and 11 interceptions without missing a game. Due to his prowess as an IDP, this potential injury could hinder his prospects to begin the regular season.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward (hip) recorded two tackles and one pass deflection in Friday's preseason game against the Seahawks.

Hayward, who was battling a hip issue earlier in the offseason, was healthy for all of training camp and has been on the field for the preseason. After putting together a career-best campaign in 2017, Hayward is set to start at cornerback yet again for the Chargers in 2018.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Sidelined by hip issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward remained sidelined for the second day of mandatory minicamp Wednesday due to a hip injury, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Hayward has displayed impressive ball-hawking abilities the past two seasons, racking up 11 interceptions over that span. While his offseason will be temporarily put on hold as he deals with some soreness, there's nothing at this point to suggest the hip issue will leak into the regular season.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Does not practice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward did not participate during OTAs on Monday due to an undisclosed injury, reports Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com.

The injury is likely insignificant, as the 2017 second-team All Pro hasn't been linked to any sort of medical issues throughout the offseason. Hayward is expected to participate in OTAs when he is deemed healthy given he agreed to a three-year extension in March that will pay the 28-year-old cornerback close to $12 million per year.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Agrees to three-year extension with Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward has signed a three-year extension with the Chargers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

In two seasons with the Chargers, Hayward has recorded 11 interceptions and 42 passes defensed, making him an All-Pro both seasons and solidifying him as a top-tier cornerback in the league. The extension is reportedly worth $36 million, with $20 million guaranteed.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Solidifies second consecutive season on All-Pro team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward tallied 40 tackles, four interceptions, one forced fumble, two fumble recoveries and 22 passes defended in 2017.

Hayward was voted second-team All-Pro for the second consecutive season, perhaps underscoring another dominant campaign from the 28-year-old. Hayward has clearly emerged as one of the better cover corners since coming over from Green Bay in 2016, but he likely doesn't post enough consistent counting numbers to be a reliable IDP asset in shallow leagues.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Recovers fumble he forced Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward had two solo tackles, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery Sunday against the Jets.

Hayward has posted more than three tackles in a game just three times through 15 outings this season, so he relies on other forms of contribution to boost his stat line. This was his first forced fumble since the 2012 season, but he now has reached 20 pass breakups for the second consecutive season, and he's one shy of matching his career high.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Active Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward (calf) is listed as active Saturday at Kansas City.

Hayward developed soreness from his calf to his Achilles by week's end, earning a questionable designation. In advance of this game, the Chargers promoted cornerback Craig Mager from the practice squad, seemingly as a backup plan. No matter, Hayward has been cleared by the training staff and will suit up at his typical left cornerback spot.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Questionable for Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Chiefs with a calf injury, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports. "We held [Hayward] out [of practice]," Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said Thursday. "He had more soreness in his calf, and it kind of worked its way down to the Achilles so we held him out."

Hayward had been a healthy participant in San Diego's practices all week before appearing on the injury report Thursday. A similar injury afflicted Hayward two weeks ago, but he ultimately suited up days later for the Chargers' win over the Browns. Lynn is similarly hopeful that Hayward will be able to shake off the latest setback to take the field Saturday, but if the veteran is sidelined, Michael Davis would pick up his first career start at cornerback.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Expected to play Sunday vs. Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward (personal, calf), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns, will play in the contest, a source informed Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Hayward missed all of the Chargers' practices this week after leaving the team to be with his family in Georgia following the death of his brother Monday. The cornerback returned to Los Angeles late Friday and touched base with the coaching staff on the Week 13 game plan, so it looks like he'll be ready to go for Sunday's 4:05 p.m. EST kickoff. His responsibilities are expected to include covering Browns wideout Josh Gordon, who will return from suspension to play in his first NFL game since 2014.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Remains in Georgia, questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward (calf, personal) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns.

Hayward left to be with his family in Georgia earlier this week following the death of his younger brother, and he's yet to return to the team. There is understandably no clear indication on whether the 28-year-old will be available to play Sunday. Rookie Desmond King would likely step in if Hayward ultimately is unable to play.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Leaves team for personal matter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward left the Chargers earlier this week to be with his family in Georgia following the death of his younger brother, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said he isn't sure when the cornerback will rejoin the team. The Chargers have a home date with the Browns on tap for Sunday.
