Los Angeles Chargers QB Tyrod Taylor is considered the leading candidate for the starting quarterback job but a final decision has not been made, according to head coach Anthony Lynn.
Huddle Up: Taylor has played well in the past when he has been a starter but may have to compete with a rookie quarterback during training camp for the Chargers quarterback job. He can be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he wins the job.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Tyrod Taylor is in line to be the starting quarterback for the Chargers next season since the team is not expected to sign or acquire a veteran quarterback this offseason, according to sources.
Huddle Up: The Chargers probably will draft a quarterback this offseason, but Taylor may open the season as a starter. Taylor has had some success during his career and would have some fantasy value because of his ability to run. Fantasy players could consider him a low-end No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry on Friday, March 13, received the franchise tag.
Huddle Up: Henry finished 2019 with career highs in targets (76), receptions (55) and receiving yards (652) but still missed four games -- bringing his four-year total to 23. If he can stay reasonably healthy and the Bolts don't take a huge step back at quarterback, he'll be in the TE1 consideration this summer.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler on Friday, March 6, agreed to a four-year, $24.5 million contract. The deal includes $15 million in guarantees.
Huddle Up: Even while sharing most of the season with Melvin Gordon, Ekeler emerged as a PPR force last season, finishing second among all backs with 92 catches and 993 yards and pacing the position with nine receiving TDs. With Gordon now slated to bolt in free agency, Ekeler is a locked-in PPR RB1 pick and a borderline RB1 in standard drafts.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry is a candidate to receive the franchise tag for the 2020 season, according to general manager Tom Telesco Tuesday, Feb. 25. Telesco added the goal remains to sign Henry to an extension and talks are continuing.
Huddle Up: Henry started and played 12 games in 2019 and finished the season with 55 receptions for 652 yards and five touchdowns. He'll remain a high-volume target in the Chargers offense if he stays in Los Angeles, but the team's murky QB situation could lower his value.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler needs to see 15 to 20 touches per game, according to head coach Anthony Lynn.
Huddle Up: Ekeler is one of the more versatile backs in the NFL, and he finished 2019 with 92 catches and eight receiving touchdowns. There's a good chance he will be he unquestioned top back and a potential RB1 in 2020 if Melvin Gordon doesn't return, but even if Gordon is back, Ekeler can be a RB2 in PPR formats.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Tyrod Taylor could earn the starting spot for the 2020 season, according to head coach Anthony Lynn Thursday, Feb. 13. 'Tyrod Taylor is a heck of a quarterback,' Lynn told AM 570 LA Sports. 'We couldn't have a better backup right now, and now he has an opportunity to maybe step up into a starting role. I've had Tyrod before (in Buffalo), and I know what this young man brings to the table, in the passing game and the running game.'
Huddle Up: Lynn credited Taylor's ability to take care of the football as a strong point in his game. Taylor will turn 31 years old ahead of the 2020 season and has 54 career touchdown passes against 20 interceptions through 46 starts and 70 total appearances. He rushed for at least 427 yards in each of his three seasons as a starter for the Buffalo Bills and can certainly be a reliable QB1 in fantasy due to his safe floor of production as a result of his contributions on the ground.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry caught five of his seven targets for 45 yards in a 24-17 loss to the Oakland Raiders in Week 16.
Huddle Up: It was actually one of Hunter's busier outings over the past month, and he had been held to just six total catches in the three previous games combined. Despite the downward trend, he's still a low-end starting option at a thin position.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams caught three of his four targets for 51 yards in a 24-17 loss to the Oakland Raiders in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Williams was unable to extend his touchdown streak to three games, but he topped 50 receiving yards for the eighth straight game. He's closing in on 1,000 yards for the year, and if not for the unusually low amount of touchdowns, he'd be a borderline WR2.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen caught five of his 10 targets for 71 yards in a 24-17 loss to the Oakland Raiders in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Allen's steady season continued as he topped 60 receiving yards for the 12th time in 15 games. While he might not have the highest ceiling, Allen does offer a safe floor as a WR2. Expect more of the same in the finale when he faces a Kansas City team that he beat for eight catches, 71 yards and a touchdown earlier this year.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler rushed four times for 11 yards and caught five of his six targets for 58 yards in a 24-17 loss to the Oakland Raiders in Week 16.
Huddle Up: His rushing totals have fluctuated since Melvin Gordon returned to the backfield, but his explosiveness and his steady role in the passing game should keep him in PPR lineups.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 20, and is not on the injury report for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Williams has posted at least 70 yards in four of the last six games and has caught a touchdown in each of the last two games. He can be considered at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams practiced in full Thursday, Dec. 19.
Huddle Up: Williams has scored touchdowns in consecutive weeks after not reaching the end zone until Week 14. He's a solid WR3 play this week against the Oakland Raiders.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry caught two passes for 29 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 15. He also lost a fumble.
Huddle Up: Henry put up big numbers for a while after returning from injury, but he has done very little over the last three weeks, and his fumble was one of seven Chargers turnovers in an ugly performance. Despite that, Henry is a TE1 that can't be left on the bench.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams had four receptions, 71 yards and a touchdown against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Dec. 15.
Huddle Up: Williams continues to put together a strong third season, topping 60 yards receiving for the ninth time in his last 12 games. The Clemson product also scored for the second straight week and should be a major part of the game plan against a porous Raiders secondary next Sunday.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen hauled in nine passes for 99 yards in a Week 15 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.
Huddle Up: Allen led the way in receptions and receiving yards Sunday, and he has done a nice job of bouncing back following a stretch of uninspired play where he seemed to take a backseat to Hunter Henry and others. Against Oakland, Allen should be playable as a WR2.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler caught five passes for 62 yards against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Dec. 15. He also carried the ball seven times for 19 yards.
Huddle Up: Like seemingly everyone else with the Chargers, Ekeler also fumbled the ball, though a hustling Keenan Allen was able to punch it out of bounds. Ekeler wasn't great on Sunday, but he'll have a chance to rebound against the Raiders in Week 16.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) remained limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 12.
Huddle Up: Williams has strung together a good stretch, where he as at least provided fantasy managers with a high floor. He has caught only two passes in three of his last four games, but he topped 50 yards each time and scored his first touchdown of the season last week. He's a flex option against the Minnesota Vikings this week, if active.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry caught two of his four targets for 39 yards and a touchdown in a 45-10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 14.
Huddle Up: Henry has been quiet in recent weeks, finishing with fewer than 40 yards in three of his last four games. That being said, a lack of reliable tight ends makes Henry a low-end TE1 candidate.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams caught two of his three targets for 63 yards and a touchdown, his first of the year, in a 45-10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 14.
Huddle Up: The lack of touchdowns has curbed his fantasy value, but Williams has still be generating big plays and has already set a new career high in receiving yards. He's a flex option with enormous upside.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen caught five of his six targets for 83 yards in a 45-10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 14.
Huddle Up: Although Allen hasn't had a lot of huge performances this year, he enjoys a steady role in the passing game. Allen is closing in on another 1,000-yard campaign, and he remains a reliable WR2.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler rushed eight times for 101 yards and caught four passes for 112 yards and a touchdown in a 45-10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 14.
Huddle Up: This is the extreme end of Ekeler's upside, but even with Melvin Gordon seeing a majority of the carries, Ekeler's versatility and explosiveness have allowed him to remain a RB2 option.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 6, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry had two receptions for 10 yards against the Denver Broncos in Week 13.
Huddle Up: This was easily Henry's worst game of 2019, falling 20 yards short of previous season low (in a game where he also caught a TD pass). Just chalk it up to a good player having a bad game, and not necessarily due to anything he did as Henry was targeted just three times. He remains a must-start TE1 next Sunday against Jacksonville.
