DeAndre Carter Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

The Chargers have downgraded WR Mike Williams from questionable to out for Saturday night's game against the Jaguars, because of the back injury he suffered in Week 18 against the Broncos. That boosts the outlook for Chargers WRs Josh Palmer and DeAndre Carter, who have each moved up our WR rankings for the week. HC Brandon Staley has taken a lot of flak this week for the way he handled starters in a game his team didn't need. But he at least did coaches everywhere a service by clearly reminding everyone why you rest key players in those situations. We'll see about Williams' status for Round 2, if the Chargers advance.

Chargers WR Mike Williams (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Raiders. He remained sidelined in practice all week and has no timetable for return. Keenan Allen, Josh Palmer and DeAndre Carter will again operate as Los Angeles’ top 3 WRs on Sunday.

Chargers QB Justin Herbert threw for 274 yards and 3 TDs in Sunday's win over the Cardinals. Herbert hit WR Keenan Allen, WR DeAndre Carter and RB Austin Ekeler for TDs. The 1-yarder to Ekeler with 15 seconds left won the game. Ekeler (15) and Carter (10) combined for 53.2% of Herbert's pass attempts and 51.4% of his completions for the game. Carter caught 7 for 73 yards. WR Josh Palmer went 5-56 on 7 targets. Allen finished with 5 receptions for 49 yards. TE Gerald Everett added 4 catches for 18 yards on 4 targets. The Chargers get a soft Raiders defense in Week 13.

Chargers WRs Mike Williams (ankle) and Keenan Allen (hamstring) are out for Sunday night’s game vs. the 49ers. Williams is probably still a couple of weeks away from returning from his high-ankle sprain. Allen has no timetable to return from his lingering hamstring problem. Josh Palmer will again operate as Los Angeles’ top WR this weekend, with DeAndre Carter the #2.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's a big long shot to play vs. the 49ers this weekend, again leaving Josh Palmer and DeAndre Carter as Los Angeles' top 2 WRs.

Chargers WR DeAndre Carter (illness) is active for today’s game vs. the Falcons. He was added to the injury report on Friday and listed as questionable, but Carter should be ready to operate as Los Angeles’ #2 WR today with Mike Williams and Keenan Allen out.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Falcons. He suffered a setback with that hamstring while training over the bye week and didn't practice at all this week. Allen said he's not returning until he's back to 100%, so consider him iffy for Week 10. WR Mike Williams (ankle) is also out for Sunday's game, while WR DeAndre Carter was added to the injury report on Friday and is listed as questionable with an illness. We'll see if he's able to suit up come Sunday. Josh Palmer should lead Chargers WRs in targets against Atlanta's 31st-ranked WR defense. Los Angeles' other healthy WRs are Michael Bandy and Jason Moore. WRs Joe Reed, John Hightower and Keelan Doss are on the practice squad. RB Austin Ekeler and TE Gerald Everett also project for strong volume this weekend.

ESPN's Lindsay Thiry reports that Chargers WR Keenan Allen says his bothersome hamstring "got worse" during training over the bye week. Allen added that he won't be playing limited snaps the next time he takes the field but that "it will be all or nothing, with his hamstring absolutely ready to go," according to Thiry. That seems to indicate he's not a great bet to play Sunday against the Falcons. We'll certainly be watching this situation. The Chargers will already be without WR Mike Williams (ankle), so Josh Palmer and DeAndre Carter might be the lead duo at Atlanta.

The Chargers expect WR Mike Williams to miss a "minimum" of 4 weeks with his high-ankle sprain, according to The Athletic's Daniel Popper. That's a typical timeline for this injury. Williams gets a Week 8 bye but figures to miss at least the next 3 games vs. the Falcons, 49ers and Chiefs. We'd still try to keep him stashed on fantasy benches as a late-season asset. Williams' absence will leave Keenan Allen, Josh Palmer and DeAndre Carter as Los Angeles' top 3 WRs.

Chargers WR Joshua Palmer is in concussion protocol and didn't practice on Wednesday. So his status for this weekend's game vs. the Seahawks is now in doubt. With WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) also iffy, the Chargers might be down to WRs DeAndre Carter, Michael Bandy and Jason Moore behind Mike Williams.

As expected, Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) is inactive for tonight's game vs. the Broncos. He was listed as doubtful, but he got in 3 limited practices this week and is targeting a return this Sunday vs. the Seahawks. Josh Palmer and DeAndre Carter get another game as Los Angeles' #2 and #3 WRs, respectively.

The Chargers list WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) as doubtful for Monday night's game vs. the Broncos. Allen said earlier today that he's not planning on playing against Denver and is targeting a Week 7 return. We'll track his status next week. Josh Palmer and DeAndre Carter will again serve as Los Angeles' #2 and #3 WRs on Monday.

Chargers WR Mike Williams drew 13 targets in Sunday's win over the Browns. That marked a 38.2% share of Justin Herbert pass attempts. He turned them into 10 catches for 134 yards. Williams' numbers topped his nearest teammates by 7 targets, 6 receptions and 101 yards. WR Keenan Allen remained out with his hamstring injury. That left WR Joshua Palmer to rank 2nd with 6 targets. DeAndre Carter slipped back to 3rd in playing time among Chargers wideouts and drew only 2 looks.

Chargers WR Joshua Palmer (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns. He managed limited practices all week. We'll check his status Sunday morning. If Palmer's good to go, then Keenan Allen's continued absence -- he'll miss a 3rd straight game with his hamstring injury -- leaves room for plenty of upside. If Palmer can't go or is limited, then DeAndre Carter will be worth a look in deep leagues and DFS formats.

Washington WR Curtis Samuel (groin) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Chiefs. He appears to be looking at another multi-week absence. WR Cam Sims (hamstring) has also been ruled out. WR Dyami Brown (knee) is listed as questionable after a limited week of practice. With WR Terry McLaurin (hamstring) also questionable, Adam Humphries, Deandre Carter and Dax Milne are Washington's only healthy WRs. It's obviously a concern for QB Taylor Heinicke.
