New Chargers OC Greg Roman told reporters recently that he wants a "balanced" offense. "We want to be able to run it when we want to run it and throw it when we want to throw it," Roman added. "If they present looks that are favorable to run it, then we want to be able to run it at a high level. Every place I’ve been, that’s kind of been the goal, to try to have that complete attack." That jibes with HC John Harbaugh saying at his introductory press conference that he wants to "beef up the run game." Both Harbaugh and Roman have extensive histories of run-leaning offenses. That'd be a big shift for the Chargers, who ranked top-5 in pass attempts in each of QB Justin Herbert's first four seasons. It wouldn't make sense for Roman to deploy a super run-heavy offense with a QB as talented as Herbert. But we're certainly expecting the Chargers to throw less this coming season than they have the last four. Herbert and his pass catchers will need to make up for the loss in volume with improved efficiency.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen (heel) is out for Sunday's finale vs. the Chiefs. He finishes his age-31 season with a career-high 108 catches for 1,243 yards and seven TDs in 13 games. Allen is signed for the 2024 season -- but at a $34.7 million cap hit. We'll see how the Chargers handle that situation.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen (heel) remained sidelined on Wednesday. Interim HC Giff Smith said chances are “slim” that Allen will play in this weekend's meaningless finale vs. the Chiefs. Allen will finish the season with a career-high 108 catches for 1,243 yards and seven TDs in 13 games.

Chargers WRs Keenan Allen (heel) and Josh Palmer (concussion) are out for Sunday’s game vs. the Broncos. That leaves Los Angeles with WRs Quentin Johnston, Jalen Guyton, Alex Erickson, and Derius Davis. None is a recommended Week 17 fantasy starter. RB Austin Ekeler and TE Gerald Everett could see more targets with Allen and Palmer out.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen (heel) did not practice on Wednesday. We'll keep tabs on his status over the next few days, but fantasy owners should not be banking on Allen playing vs. the Broncos this weekend. WR Josh Palmer (concussion) also missed Wednesday's practice and is in danger of missing Sunday's game. The Chargers could be down to WRs Quentin Johnston, Jalen Guyton, Alex Erickson, and Derius Davis.

Multiple reports have indicated that Chargers WR Keenan Allen (heel) has been ruled out for Saturday's Week 16 contest vs. the Bills. The veteran wideout also sat out in Week 15 due to this ailment and hasn't practiced at any point in the past two weeks. Fortunately, fantasy managers have the advanced notice to be able to make alternative lineup choices. Allen's next opportunity to play comes on New Year's Eve for Week 17's showdown vs. the Broncos.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen (heel) remained sidelined on Wednesday. He's looking unlikely to play against the Bills on Saturday night. We'll see how Allen is listed on the final injury report tomorrow, but we've removed him from the Week 16 Rankings.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen (heel) remained sidelined for Tuesday's practice. We still have no details on his injury, but Allen has little reason to rush back for the 5-9 Chargers. We'll keep tabs on his status leading up to Saturday night's game vs. the Bills, but fantasy owners should be lining up alternatives in case Allen is out again.

On Friday, multiple reports indicated that the Chargers have parted ways with HC Brandon Staley and GM Tom Telesco. This news doesn't come as much of a surprise following the team's 63-21 collapse vs. the Raiders on Thursday night. Across nearly three full seasons on the job, Staley finished with a 24-24 record and appeared in just one playoff game. Who will take over as the interim coach is not known as of the time of this writing. Stay tuned for further updates.

Update: The Chargers have named Giff Smith interim HC and JoJo Wooden as interim GM, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Smith has been the team's outside LBs coach the past two years and was an NFL defensive line coach for 11 seasons before that. It looks like OC Kellen Moore will remain with the Chargers at least for the rest of this season.

The Chargers ruled out WR Keenan Allen (heel) for Week 15. This marks his first missed game since last season. In his place, the Chargers will rely on Josh Palmer and Quentin Johnston at WR. It’s an ugly spot for fill-in QB Easton Stick and the entire offense, especially for a divisional road game on a short week. We’d try to avoid using anyone not named Austin Ekeler in the L.A. offense. As of this writing, the team is implied for only 16 points.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen (heel) did not practice on Tuesday. We don't have any other details on the heel issue. We'll see if Allen practices tomorrow and how he's listed on the final injury report for Thursday night's game vs. the Raiders.
