Most Recent Shark Bites

The Chargers released K Tristan Vizcaino and signed K Dustin Hopkins. It's surprising Vizcaino lasted this long considering he missed 5 XPs and 1 FG through 6 games. Hopkins was dumped by Washington last week after missing 2 XPs and 2 FGs in 6 games. But he sports a career 84.0% FG conversion rate and should bring more stability to the position for Los Angeles. Hopkins should also be a decent fantasy option in this high-scoring offense.

Washington released K Dustin Hopkins and signed K Chris Blewitt. Hopkins missed 2 XPs and 2 FGs over the first 6 games of this season. Blewitt has yet to attempt a regular-season kick and isn't a viable Week 7 fantasy option.

Chargers S Nasir Adderley (hip) is inactive for today's game against the Ravens. Alohi Gilman should be next up in Adderley's place.

Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) is active for today’s game against the Ravens. He missed all 3 practices this week with what HC Brandon Staley said was swelling in his knee. There’s been no report on Williams being limited or on a snap count today, but he still comes with elevated risk in Week 6 fantasy lineups.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) is expected to play vs. the Ravens today. We heard the same from ESPN's Jeremy Fowler on Saturday night. We'll see if we hear anything about Williams being on a snap count over the next few hours. For now, consider him a risk/reward Week 6 fantasy play.

Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) is expected to play vs. the Ravens on Sunday, "barring a pregame setback," ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports. We'll look for further updates on Williams' status tomorrow morning. He'll obviously carry elevated risk in fantasy lineups after missing all 3 practices this week. But it'd also be difficult to bench Williams -- unless we hear that he'll be limited -- considering how awesome he's been through 5 weeks.

Chargers HC Brandon Staley said Friday that he's "hopeful" WR Mike Williams (knee) can play vs. the Ravens this weekend. Williams is listed as questionable after missing all 3 practices. "We were being careful with him early in the week," Staley said, adding that Williams has been dealing with swelling in that knee. We'll continue to look for updates on Williams' status and will get the Chargers' inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday.

Chargers RB Justin Jackson (groin) isn't listed on the final injury report and will return for Sunday's game vs. the Ravens. He figures to pick up a few touches behind RB Austin Ekeler.

The Chargers have ruled LB Drue Tranquill out for Sunday's game at Baltimore with a chest injury. S Nasir Adderley is questionable with a hip injury. We'll update his status Sunday morning. Tranquill's absence should make Kyzir White a good bet to lead Chargers LBs in playing time and tackles.

Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens. He didn't practice all week and seems to be in real danger of missing this one. We'll look for an update on Williams' status on Sunday morning and will find out whether he's active around 11:30 am ET.

Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. His availability for this weekend's game vs. the Ravens is now in question. Check back tomorrow for another update on his status.

Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. He played through this issue last week and should be fine for Sunday's game vs. the Ravens. But check back for another update on Williams' status tomorrow.

Chargers CB Chris Harris Jr. is active for the 1st time since Week 5. He’s not much of an IDP option but challenges the coverage matchup for the Cleveland passing game — especially in the slot

Chargers RB Justin Jackson (groin) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Browns. RB Joshua Kelley is active for the 1st time this season, joining Larry Rountree behind Austin Ekeler.

Chargers RB Justin Jackson (groin) is doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Browns. His absences leaves Larry Rountree as Los Angeles' clear #2 RB -- but Austin Ekeler might just pick up a few more touches.

The Chargers on Monday placed LB Kenneth Murray on IR. He sustained an ankle injury in Saturday's practice that initially had him questionable for Monday night's game against the Raiders. The team then downgraded him to out on Sunday. Getting him on IR ahead of their Week 4 game starts the counter earlier for Murray to return, and we're guessing it'll be a short-term stay. That said, Murray was struggling before the injury. He's fine to drop for immediate help in most redraft IDP leagues.

Update: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Murray will "likely" be back after 3 games.

The Chargers have downgraded LB Kenneth Murray (ankle) to out or Monday night's game against the Raiders. Murray shouldn't have been in your IDP plans anyway, after playing just 51% of the snaps in Week 3. Kyzir White is the top option among Chargers LBs if you still have a spot to fill in your Week 4 lineup.

Chargers LB Kenneth Murray suffered an ankle injury in Saturday's practice and is questionable for Monday night's game against the Raiders. A healthy Murray played just 51% of the snaps in Week 3, so he should be easy to leave out of your Week 4 IDP lineup. Kyzir White becomes a better play, after leading Chargers LBs in snaps last week.

Chargers S Derwin James left Sunday's game at Kansas City with a separated shoulder, but the issue didn't keep him out long. “Derwin is like, ‘Yeah, my shoulder just dislocated,’ acting like it wasn’t anything,” teammate Joey Bosa told the Los Angeles Times on Monday. “But his shoulder actually came out of the socket and he just popped it back in and came running right back out on the field.” James wound up missing just 7 of 79 defensive snaps for the game. And it looks like IDP fantasy players have nothing to worry about going forward.

Chargers QB Justin Herbert's right (throwing) hand was wrapped and iced after Sunday's win over the Chiefs, according to NFL Network's James Palmer. Herbert was able to play through the issue, and Palmer confirms that the post-game treatment was "most likely precaution." But this will be a situation to monitor this coming week.
