The Chargers have designated S Derwin James to return from IR, and ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that James is expected to play this week against the Broncos. James opened the season on IR after suffering a foot fracture in August. He was enough of an IDP stud last year for many of us to gamble on putting him back into lineups. We'll factor in some risk of limited playing time when we include James in our Week 13 DB rankings, though.
Chargers S Roderic Teamer (groin) is active for tonight's game against the Chiefs. He should return to the starting lineup and be in play for IDP use. Rookie LB Drue Tranquill is inactive. He turned up questionable after a Saturday calf injury in practice. That's just as well, because LB Denzel Perryman is no longer on the injury report. That should mean Perryman returning to his starting job against Kansas City. Thomas Davis remains the only solid fantasy bet at LB among Chargers.
Chargers S Roderic Teamer is questionable for Monday night's game against the Chiefs. He put in full practices Friday and Saturday after missing the past 2 games with a groin injury, pointing to a likely return for the Mexico City game. The Chargers also designated S Adrian Phillips to return from IR this week, but we've seen no indication he has a chance at playing against Kansas City. Elsewhere on the L.A. defense, LB Denzel Perryman was off the final injury report, pointing to a return to the lineup for him. He was active last week but didn't play because of a knee injury. Rookie Drue Tranquill saw full playing time in Perryman's absence but should see that cut drastically against the Chiefs. Thomas Davis looks like the only relatively safe LB bet among Chargers.
The Vikings have ruled DT Linval Joseph out for Sunday night's game against the Cowboys with a knee injury. A Week 12 bye could factor into whether Minnesota brings Joseph back for next week's home date with Denver.
Saints TE Jared Cook (ankle) was a full-go in practice all week and will play against the Falcons this weekend. Cook will step back in as New Orleans’ lead pass-catching TE and boasts lots of TD upside with the Saints sporting a huge 32.5-point implied total.
Chargers S Roderic Teamer is inactive for tonight's game against the Raiders. He arrived doubtful after missing Week 9 with his groin injury.
Chargers LB Denzel Perryman is active for tonight's game against the Raiders. He was questionable after missing practice this week with a knee issue. Daniel Popper of The Athletic tweeted that Perryman "wasn't moving much" in pregame warm-ups. That's not necessarily bad, but Perryman certainly carries risk. Try to avoid him in IDP lineups if you can.
The Chargers might be getting star S Derwin James back after their Week 11 bye. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Thursday morning that James "has been running pain free and is now poised to return" for Week 12. James had surgery in the summer to insert a screw into his fractured foot. We'll see about James' participation level heading into Week 12, but he's worth stashing now if your roster is deep enough to spare the bench spot.
Saints RB Jared Coof (ankle) was a full-go in Wednesday's practice, putting him on track to return for this weekend's game against the Falcons. Atlanta actually ranks 14th in adjusted fantasy points allowed to TEs, but Cook still brings exciting upside in Week 10 fantasy lineups with the Saints sporting a huge 32-point implied total.
Chargers S Roderic Teamer (groin) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Packers. Jaylen Watkins looks likely to step into Teamer's spot.
Chargers DE Melvin Ingram (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Bears. He missed the past 3 contests but is worth a DL2-level play for many IDP owners this week. Ingram put in a full practice Friday.
Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Bears. He was reportedly a true game-time decision, so he evidently felt good enough in warmups. Allen still comes with a lot of risk in Week 8 fantasy lineups.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport calls Chargers WR Keenan Allen a "true game-time decision" for today's tilt with the Bears. "He was walking around well and had some optimism," Rapoport adds. ESPN's Adam Schefter, though, reports that Allen is "not optimistic." The good news for fantasy owners is that we'll get Allen's official game status around 11:30 am ET. But it's clear that he'll be operating at far less than 100% if he ends up active.
Chargers DE Melvin Ingram (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears. Ingram has missed the past 3 games but finished this week with a full Friday practice and looks like he might be ready to play.
Saints TE Jared Cook (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. We’ll see if he can return after the Week 9 bye. With Cook sidelined last week, TE Josh Hill ran 19 routes and TE Dan Arnold 14. It’s a situation to avoid, despite the plus matchup.
Chargers HC Anthony Lynn labeled WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Bears. "I just need to see that he can go out and play and not hurt himself in pregame," Lynn said Friday. "If he can do that, then he's going to play." The coach added that Allen's snaps will be limited if he ends up giving it a go. We're sure to get more updates between now and kickoff, but Allen is shaping up as a high-risk, moderate-reward Week 8 fantasy play.
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 WR Keenan Allen did not practice on Thursday and is listed on the injury report with a hamstring. He wasn't on the injury report at all on Wednesday. We don't have any other details on the situation. It's possible this was more of a rest day for Allen, but it's more likely that he's dealing with a legitimate injury. We'll know more by Friday night.
Saints TE Jared Cook (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. At this point, fantasy owners can't bank on him returning for this weekend's game against the Cardinals. We'll update his status again tomorrow.
Chargers K Mike Badgley (groin) is inactive for today’s game against the Titans. Chase McLaughin kicks again for L.A.
