Chargers RB Austin Ekeler caught just 2 passes for 17 yards in Sunday night's loss to the Chiefs, setting season lows in each category. But he carried a season-high 19 times for 83 yards (4.4 per rush) and a TD. It was Ekeler's 6th game among the past 7 with at least 1 rushing score. Isaiah Spiller followed him in the backfield, drawing 4 carries (11 yards) and 2 targets (2 catches, 11 yards) in roughly one-third of Ekeler's playing time. Sony Michel totaled just 5 snaps and converted a 3rd-and-1 with his only carry. The Chargers find positive rushing matchups each of the next 2 weeks -- but challenges beyond that -- according to our adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs.

Despite the returns of WRs Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, WR Josh Palmer led Chargers receivers in Sunday night's loss to the Chiefs. Palmer paced the team in targets (10), receptions (8), yards (106) and claimed both of QB Justin Herbert's TD throws. Williams' early departure after he aggravated his sprained ankle certainly helped. Allen, meanwhile, finished 2nd in targets (8), catches (5) and yards (94). No other charger drew more than 3 targets. We'll see about Williams' status heading into a Week 12 visit to Arizona.

Chargers QB Justin Herbert posted a season-high 9.3 yards per pass attempt in Sunday night's loss to the Chiefs, finishing with 280 yards on 23-of-30 passing. He got WR Mike Williams back only briefly, as Williams tweaked his sprained ankle after just 1 target. WR Keenan Allen, however, racked up 5 catches for 94 yards among 8 targets in his most extensive action of the season. Allen had appeared for abbreviated stretches in just 2 previous games because of a nagging hamstring injury. There's room for Herbert to be a fantasy difference maker the rest of the way, with the league's 2nd-best remaining QB schedule.

Chargers WR Mike Williams aggravated his right-ankle injury on a 1st quarter catch in Sunday night's game vs. the Chiefs. Williams is still on the sidelines and is officially questionable to return, but he doesn't have his helmet. We'll update his status when we learn more.

Update: Williams has been ruled out.

Chargers TE Gerald Everett (groin) is inactive for tonight’s game against the Chiefs. That leaves Tre McKitty as Los Angeles’ top TE.

Chargers K Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) is inactive for tonight’s game vs. the Chiefs. Cameron Dicker will kick for Los Angeles again.

Chargers WRs Mike Williams (ankle) and Keenan Allen (hamstring) are active for tonight’s game vs. the Chiefs. Both guys were limited in Wednesday and Thursday’s practices and upgraded to full participation on Friday. Their presence is excellent news for QB Justin Herbert.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that both Chargers WRs Keenan Allen (hamstring) and Mike Williams (ankle) are expected to play tonight against the Chiefs. Both are officially questionable, which adds some risk to waiting for the Sunday night kickoff. But each also finished the week with a full practice.

The Chargers initially left TE Gerald Everett (groin) off the final injury report for Sunday night's game against the Chiefs. But despite finishing the week with a full Friday practice, Everett has now been downgraded to questionable. That could indicate a setback with the groin issue since the initial injury report. We'll watch for reports on his status ahead of the early Sunday games. But it'll be tough to wait on him for a lot of fantasy football lineups. With TE Donald Parham on IR, Tre McKitty would operate as the lead TE if Everett sits. He played a season-high 78% of snaps in last week's loss to the 49ers, drawing 6 targets but catching only 3 for 21 yards. McKitty will be a low-floor fantasy option but can fit nicely as insurance if you are waiting for Everett's game status.

Chargers K Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) returned to a limited practice on Friday but is listed as doubtful for Sunday night’s game vs. the Chiefs. It looks like Cameron Dicker will kick for Los Angeles again.

Chargers WRs Mike Williams (ankle) and Keenan Allen (hamstring) are listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game vs. the Chiefs. Both guys were limited in Wednesday and Thursday’s practices and upgraded to full participation on Friday. That seemingly has both on track to play on Sunday night. We’d try not to use Allen in fantasy lineups considering he’s been dealing with hamstring trouble since Week 1. Williams carries elevated risk coming off the high-ankle sprain but is probably worth starting on most fantasy teams.

Chargers TE Gerald Everett (groin) isn't listed on the final injury report. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday, so it doesn't seem like the groin will be an issue vs. the Chiefs on Sunday night. Everett's volume projection will take a hit, though, if the Chargers get WRs Mike Williams and Keenan Allen back.

Chargers WR Mike Williams (ankle), WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) and TE Gerald Everett (groin) were all limited on Thursday for the 2nd straight practice. We'll see what they're able to do tomorrow and then how they're listed on the final injury report for Sunday night's game vs. the Chiefs.

Chargers TE Gerald Everett (groin) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. It's encouraging news after he was knocked out early in Sunday night's loss to the 49ers -- and seemingly gives Everett a solid chance to play vs. the Chiefs this Sunday night. We'll update his status again tomorrow.

Chargers WRs Mike Williams (ankle) and Keenan Allen (hamstring) were listed as limited participants in Wednesday's practice. HC Brandon Staley said both guys took part in individual drills. We'll see how they progress leading up to Sunday night's game vs. the Chiefs. QB Justin Herbert could certainly use his top 2 WRs.

Chargers WRs Mike Williams (ankle) and Keenan Allen (hamstring) will be back at practice this week, HC Brandon Staley said Monday. We'll see if they're out there on Wednesday and, if so, at what level of participation. But Williams and Allen at least have a shot to return for Sunday night's game vs. the Chiefs.

Chargers HC Brandon Staley labeled TE Gerald Everett "day to day" with the groin injury he suffered in the loss to the 49ers. Staley added that Everett is expected to practice at some point this week, which seemingly gives him a chance to be available for Sunday night's game vs. the Chiefs. We'll track Everett's status throughout the week.

Chargers QB Justin Herbergt managed just 196 passing yards, 1 TD and 1 INT in Sunday night's loss to the 49ers. It marked the 1st time this season that he fell short of 200 yards but his 4th straight game short of 6 yards per pass attempt. NBC's Cris Collinsworth said after the game that the Chargers hope to get Keenan Allen and/or Mike Williams back for Week 11. That would obviously help the QB.

Chargers RB Austin Ekeler tallied 18 opportunities in Sunday night's loss to the 49ers. He gained 24 yards on 6 carries and caught 7 of 12 targets for 39 more yards. It was his 2nd lowest yardage total of the year, trailing only the Week 3 loss to Jacksonville. The NBC crew said after the game that the team hopes to get Keenan Allen and/or Mike Williams back ahead of a Week 11 home date with the Chiefs. That would certainly be good for the offense on whole.

Chargers TE Gerald Everett is questionable to return to Sunday night's game vs. the 49ers with a groin injury. With TE Donald Parham on IR, Los Angeles is down to TE Tre McKitty.
