Ravens RB Gus Edwards (toe) is not listed on the final Week 9 injury report. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday and should be ready for his usual role in this weekend’s game vs. the Seahawks.

Chargers WR Josh Palmer (knee) did not practice on Thursday. He battled through this injury last week but managed just three catches for 24 yards on a deflated 68% snap rate. Between the knee and a matchup vs. the Jets' top-ranked WR defense, Palmer is shaping up as a shaky Week 9 fantasy play.

Ravens RB Gus Edwards (toe) returned to a full practice on Thursday. He'll be ready to rock for this weekend's game vs. the Seahawks.

Ravens RB Gus Edwards (toe) did not practice on Wednesday. He seemed to make it out of last weekend's game just fine, so this is likely more of a rest day after handling 21 carries in the win over the Cardinals. We'll see if Edwards gets back on the field tomorrow.

Chargers QB Justin Herbert completed 31 of 40 passes for 298 yards with 3 TDs in Week 8’s victory over the Bears. After a string of struggles over his last three outings, including throwing 3 INTs in that span, Herbert’s 24 fantasy points are his highest output since Week 3 vs. the Vikings. He’ll be a solid QB1 option in Week 9 vs. the Jets.

Chargers WR Josh Palmer hurt a knee on his first catch of Sunday night's game vs. the Bears. This is presumably the same knee that had him questionable coming in. We'll update Palmer's status when we know more, but it's tough to imagine him playing again tonight.

Update: Palmer had his knee re-taped and returned to the game.

Chargers WR Josh Palmer (knee) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Bears. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, so it’s safe to assume he’ll be operating at less than 100% tonight.

Chargers WR Josh Palmer (knee) and TE Gerald Everett (hip) are game-time decisions for tonight's meeting with the Bears, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "There is more optimism that Palmer can play than Everett," Rapoport adds. Everett should not be in Week 8 fantasy lineups. Palmer is a tricky situation with the late kickoff. We won't get Chargers inactives until a little before 7 pm ET. If you're hoping to use Palmer, you need an alternative rostered from either this game or Monday night's Raiders-Lions game.

Chargers S Alohi Gilman (heel) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears. Gilman got back to a full practice Friday after two limited workouts. He appears on track to return after missing the past three games. We'll confirm his status Sunday.

Chargers WR Josh Palmer (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game vs. the Bears. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, so his availability for this one is seemingly in serious jeopardy. We’ll look for further updates on Palmer’s status, but we won’t get the Chargers’ inactives until a little before 7 pm ET on Sunday.

Chargers WR Josh Palmer (knee) missed his second straight practice on Thursday. It's officially time to worry about his status for Sunday night's game vs. the Bears. We'll see if Palmer gets on the practice field tomorrow and how he's listed on the final injury report.

Chargers WR Josh Palmer (knee) was held out of Wednesday's practice. He's coming off a big 5-133-0 line in the loss to the Chiefs and seemed to come out of that one fine. We're tentatively expecting Palmer to play vs. the Bears on Sunday night but will update his status again tomorrow.

Chargers WR Josh Palmer led the team with 5 receptions and 133 yards in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. The yardage set a career high, up from the 106 he managed twice last November. Palmer's 7 targets trailed only WR Keenan Allen (9) and beat everyone else on the team by at least three. It was the first time this year Palmer exceeded 4 receptions or reached 80 yards. But it was also his fourth straight game with at least 7 targets and 60+ yards. Palmer looks like a solid weekly low-end WR3 with upside into WR2 range. A Week 8 matchup with the Bears looks favorable for everyone.

Ravens RB Gus Edwards received a team-leading 14 carries for 64 rushing yards and a TD in Week 7 vs. the Lions. He also caught a long 80-yard pass on his lone target in the contest. RB Justice Hill wasn’t as involved on Sunday, seeing just 5 total touches and 48 total yards. Next week’s matchup vs. the Cardinals should be a better spot for both RBs to produce.

Chargers S Derwin James (ankle) is active for today's game against the Chiefs. We knocked him down the Week 7 rankings for the injury anyway, and there's clearly risk to using James in IDP lineups. But he's available if you need him.

Chargers Edge Joey Bosa (toe) carries no injury status into Sunday's game against the Chiefs. It's the first time that has been the case for him since Week 2. Bosa's playing time climbed to 47% last week, his highest level since the season opener. This week's status and Bosa's full Friday practice points to further playing-time growth against Kansas City. We've moved Bosa up the Week 7 DL rankings a bit, but the matchup with the Chiefs remains negative for pass rushers.

Chargers S Derwin James is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He suffered an ankle injury Thursday and then missed Friday's workout. That bodes ill for James' chances this weekend, but we haven't yet seen any specifics beyond the questionable tag. We've moved James down our Week 7 DB rankings and will watch for more on his outlook. S Alohi Gilman (toe) has been ruled out for the third straight game.

Chargers QB Justin Herbert completed 22 of 37 attempts for 227 yards with 2 TDs and a costly game-deciding INT in Week 6’s loss vs. the Cowboys. He also scurried his way to 20 rushing yards on 6 carries on Monday night. Despite not winning the contest, Herbert’s 18.1 fantasy points secured his finish as the QB6 on the week. Next up for the Chargers is a Week 7 road contest against the Chiefs.

Chargers TE Donald Parham (wrist) is active for tonight's game vs. the Cowboys. He's a TD-dependent flier in one-game DFS contests.

Chargers WR Joshua Palmer (groin) is active for tonight's game vs. the Cowboys. He was added to the injury report on Sunday, adding risk to his fantasy outlook tonight. Palmer is available if you waited on him in season-long leagues, but he's a fade in one-game DFS contests.
