Chargers' Je'Ron Hamm: Joins Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hamm was claimed off waivers by the Chargers on Monday.

Hamm was waived by the Seahawks for the second time in the last three weeks Sunday, but didn't take long to latch on with a new team this time around. The 26-year-old will compete for a depth tight end role with the Chargers.

Chargers' Virgil Green: Quiet in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green started at tight end during Saturday's preseason opener against the Cardinals but he was unable to secure the only pass thrown his way.

Green only saw one look Saturday and was unable to secure a hard pass from backup quarterback Cardale Jones on a simple out route. Depth tight ends Braeden Bowman and Sean Culkin also got a few chances in the passing game, but Culkin was the only one to catch a pass and he brought down two of them for 24 yards. Green doesn't seem to be in any danger of losing his No. 1 spot on the depth chart, though, and it's difficult to take too much away from a game in which starting quarterback Philip Rivers didn't play.

Chargers' Cardale Jones: Mediocre in preseason start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones started at quarterback and was 6-of-12 passing for 50 yards without a touchdown or interception in Saturday's preseason loss to the Cardinals.

Jones was outplayed by Geno Smith (218 yards passing with a touchdown and interception) as the two battle for the backup job, though neither was overly impressive. The battle for the backup role may not be decided until late in the preseason.

Chargers' Tyrell Williams: Listed as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams and Keenan Allen are listed as the starting wide receivers on the Chargers' initial depth chart, Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

While they'll likely rely on three-receiver formations after losing TE Hunter Henry to a torn ACL, the Chargers are only listing two wideouts as starters on their preseason depth chart. Williams figures to have a regular spot in those three-wide sets, but he could lose playing time to Mike Williams and/or Travis Benjamin when the Chargers only have two receivers on the field. It isn't out of the question for Tyrell or Mike Williams to push for 6-8 targets per game, though neither is likely to approach Keenan Allen's volume.

Chargers' Austin Ekeler: Listed with second-string
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ekeler is the No. 2 running back on the Chargers' initial depth chart, Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

As expected, Ekeler gets the nod over rookie seventh-round pick Justin Jackson, who is in danger of missing Saturday's preseason opener against the Cardinals due to a hamstring injury. Even if Jackson were to return in short order, Ekeler would still be a clear favorite for the backup job, coming off a rookie season with 5.5 yards per carry, 10.3 yards per catch and five touchdowns on only 74 touches. Melvin Gordon is locked in as the workhorse for early downs, but he may cede a few more snaps to Ekeler in passing situations this season.
