Chargers' Korey Toomer: Earns six tackles and forced fumble
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toomer piled 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 middle 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: Listed as starting inside linebacker
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toomer is listed as the team's starting inside linebacker opposite Jatavis Brown.

This move was a no brainer, as the Chargers released Toomer's competition, Nick Dzubnar, as part of the cutdown to the 53-man roster. While Denzel Perryman continues to rehab following preseason surgery to his ankle, Toomer could be a valuable IDP asset for the immediate future.

Chargers' Korey Toomer: Starts preseason contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 rule 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.

Chargers' Korey Toomer: Making strong case for starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Chargers' Korey Toomer: Signs restricted free-agent tender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toomer signed his restricted free-agent tender with the Chargers, Rickey Henne of the team's official site reports.

Toomer will join a crowded Chargers linebacking core, with Denzel Perryman and Jatavis Brown presumably pegged for starting roles. Should either player go down with an injury, Toomer could be a sneaky IDP candidate, as the 28-year-old recorded 75 tackles in 13 games with the Chargers last season.
