The Chargers selected Oregon QB Justin Herbert with the 6th overall pick of the 2020 NFL Draft. Herbert made 42 starts across the past 4 years, leaving the Ducks with a career 64% completion rate, 8.2 yards per attempt and 95 TDs vs. 23 INTs. After a disappointing 2018 campaign, he bounced back to chuck for 3,471 yards with 32 TDs vs. 6 INTs on a 67% completion rate and 8.1 yards per attempt this past year. Herbert’s accuracy is spotty, but he’s a 6’6, 235-pounder with a big arm. And his rushing upside makes him an intriguing fantasy prospect. Although he totaled just 216 yards and 6 scores on the ground over the past 2 seasons, Herbert ran a 4.68-second 40-yard dash at the Combine and earned a 92nd percentile SPARQ (athleticism) score. He could produce Josh Allen-like rushing numbers as a pro. Herbert joins Tyrod Taylor in the Chargers’ QB room. HC Anthony Lynn is a big Tyrod fan, but we’d expect Herbert to take over at some point this season.
Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Bears. He didn't practice on Thursday or Friday after not being on the injury report at all on Wednesday. Allen appears to be in real danger of missing Sunday's game. We'll look for updates on his availability throughout the weekend and will get his official game status by noon ET on Sunday. Allen's absence would leave Mike Williams as Los Angeles' clear #1 WR and would also likely push more targets toward TE Hunter Henry and RBs Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler.
Chargers WRs Mike Williams (back) and Travis Benjamin (hip) are both active for today’s game against the Broncos. Williams is an upside WR3 play with CB Chris Harris likely to shadow WR Keenan Allen.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) is expected to play today against the Broncos. Williams returned to a full practice Friday after limited workouts the previous 2 days, which certainly seemed to put him on the right track. There will be just 3 more games after his 4:05 ET kickoff in case you need a fill-in, though.
Chargers WRs Mike Williams (back) and Travis Benjamin (hip) are listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Broncos.

Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. He was sidelined all last week before missing the game against Miami.

Chargers WRs Mike Williams (back) is out for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. We haven’t heard any details on the back injury or how much longer Williams will be sidelined. WR Travis Benjamin (hip) is listed as doubtful for Week 4, so it looks like Dontrelle Inman will operate as Los Angeles’ #2 WR on Sunday. The juicy matchup makes him a WR4 or flex consideration.
Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. We still haven't heard anything about the back issue, but it looks like he's in real danger of missing this weekend's pristine spot against the Dolphins. WR Travis Benjamin (hip) has also missed the first 2 practices of the week, so Dontrelle Inman might be Los Angeles' #2 WR vs. Miami.

Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) is active for today’s game against the Lions. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported this morning that Williams is expected to be limited to red-zone situations only. That’d make him just a TD-dependent flier in fantasy lineups.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) is "likely to be used Sunday in red-zone situations" against the Lions. He only got in a limited practice on Friday but "showed improvement later in the week," according to Schefter. We'd still try to avoid Williams in Week 2 fantasy lineups, but this news does give QB Philip Rivers' stock a slight boost.
Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Lions. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, so it’s tough to believe he’ll be anywhere close to 100% if he suits up. We’ll find out if Williams will play by noon ET on Sunday, but we’d try not to use him in Week 2 fantasy lineups.
Update: HC Anthony Lynn labeled Williams a game-time decision. “I just need to see that he can go out and play, and not hurt himself,” Lynn said. “He has a couple more days, so we’ll go day by day.”
Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) missed practice again on Thursday. He's looking unlikely to be ready for this weekend's game against the Lions. That'd leave Travis Benjamin and Dontrelle Inman as Los Angeles' #2 and #3 WRs.
Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. We still don't have any details on the injury he sustained in last weekend's opener, but HC Anthony Lynn admitted that he's "absolutely" concerned about Williams' availability for Sunday's game against the Lions. His absence would leave Travis Benjamin and Dontrelle Inman behind Keenan Allen on the WR depth chart.
Chargers WR Mike Williams hurt his knee in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game against the Colts and is officially questionable to return. We'll update his status when we learn more. Williams' absence leaves Travis Benjamin as Los Angeles' #2 WR.
Chargers WR Keenan Allen has been diagnosed with a hip pointer, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "No structural damage and nothing that’ll affect him long-term. He could miss some time, but it’s unlikely to be much," Rapoport adds. Allen has some extra time to heal up after going down in Thursday night's win over the Chiefs. We'll keep an eye on him when the Chargers return to practice next week. If Allen misses Week 16, WRs Mike Williams and Tyrell Williams will both be fantasy starters, despite a tough matchup against the Ravens.
