Los Angeles Chargers TE Jared Cook caught four of his seven targets for 25 yards and a touchdown in a 34-6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6.
Huddle Up: Cook has been held below 30 yards in four of the six games, and he is a touchdown-dependent fantasy play as the fourth option, at best, in the passing attack.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams caught two of his five targets for 27 yards in a 34-6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6.
Huddle Up: It was the second dud of the season for Williams, but with 80-plus yards and at least one touchdown in each of the other four games, the upside is worth an occasional rough performance.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen caught all five of his targets for 50 yards in a 34-6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6.
Huddle Up: While Allen's final line left a lot to be desired, he actually had one of the better performances in an otherwise ugly showing for the Chargers' offense. The rise of Mike Williams has hurt Allen's numbers a bit this year, but he still offers a solid floor.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler rushed six times for seven yards and caught four of his seven targets for 48 yards in a 34-6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6.
Huddle Up: It was a rough performance for the offense overall, and the early deficit forced the Chargers to abandon the ground game and limited Ekeler to a season-low 10 touches. Expect a more typical workload and RB1 production when he faces the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 7.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert completed 22 of his 39 passes for 195 yards, one touchdown and an interception in a 34-6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6.
Huddle Up: Herbert had tossed 11 touchdowns and no interceptions over the previous three games, but his hot streak ended in ugly fashion. He should be able to recapture his QB1 form against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 7.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) is officially active for the Week 6 game.
Huddle Up: Williams did not practice at all this week but will be involved passing game this week. He is a risky option because of the injury but can still be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Indianapolis Colts PK Michael Badgley on Saturday, Oct. 16, was elevated from the active roster from the practice squad.
Huddle Up: The Money Badger looks to be Indy's kicker for the new few weeks with Rodrigo Blankenship being placed on IR. Badgley, though, will need to show his struggles are behind him after missing 10-of-34 field goal attempts and 4-of-41 extra-point attempts since the start of the 2020 season.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 15, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Williams missed all three days of practice, so he will be a game-time decision this week. He has been playing well over the last few weeks and can be a starting option if he plays, but fantasy players will need other options in case he is ruled out.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 14.
Huddle Up: Williams' status for the Week 6 game is uncertain at this point, so fantasy players will need to monitor the situation. He has played very well this season and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues if he is active.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 13.
Huddle Up: It is not known if Williams will be available for the Week 6 game, so fantasy players will need to monitor the situation. He has posted at least 100 yards in two of the last three games and has six touchdowns on the season. He can be a No. 2 receiver in most fantasy leagues if he is able to play.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams caught eight passes for 165 yards and two touchdowns against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, Oct. 10.
Huddle Up: For the fourth time in five games, Williams posted high-end fantasy numbers with 80-plus receiving yards and at least one score. The former seventh overall pick has teased in the past but has never strung together a complete season... until now it would seem. Through five games, Williams is on pace for 105 catches, 1,602 yards and 20 touchdowns. If that's not WR1 production we don't know what is.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen caught six passes for 75 yards against the Cleveland Browns in Week 5. He was targeted nine times.
Huddle Up: It was Mike Williams' day in Week 5, pushing Allen into a secondary role. He was solid, but after opening the season with 208 yards in his first two games, the veteran has managed a more modest 161 receiving yards over the past three. He's still a top-10 WR for now, though Williams' emergence has made him more of a borderline WR1/WR2 than in previous seasons.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler carried the ball 17 times for 66 yards and two touchdowns against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, Oct. 10. Ekeler also added 53 yards and a touchdown on five receptions.
Huddle Up: Ekeler was at the center of one of the more unusual sequences you'll see in an NFL football game, sliding down to keep the clock running instead of scoring a touchdown... and then one player being essentially carried into the end zone by the Browns defense after LA inexplicably ran another play instead of taking a knee. Fantasy owners were duly grateful as it generated Ekeler's third touchdown of the game (and seventh of the season). The issue with Ekeler has long been durability, and on that front it's so far, so good. He's an RB1 as long as he suits up on game day.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert completed 26 of 43 passes for 398 yards and four touchdowns during the team's Week 5 win over the Cleveland Browns. Herbert also ran four times for 29 yards and a touchdown.
Huddle Up: After dominating the Bears and Vikings in successive weeks, the Browns had no answers for Herbert on Sunday. The second-year QB found open receivers all over the field, and when he was forced to run he showed some speed and elusiveness. Herbert has been dialed in over the last three games, throwing 11 touchdown passes without an interception, and should remain in your starting lineup in Week 6 against the Ravens.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 8, and is not on the injury report for Week 5.
Huddle Up: Allen is averaging 11 targets per game so far this season and has at least seven receptions in three games in 2021. He should see a similar workload this week and can be at least a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 8, and is not on the injury report for Week 5.
Huddle Up: Ekeler will receive plenty of touches in the running and passing game this week and should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 7.
Huddle Up: Allen caught seven passes in the last game but was held to a season-low 36 yards. He will be facing a tough Cleveland Browns defense this week but should still be a starting option in all leagues.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 7.
Huddle Up: Ekeler has received at least 15 touches in every game this season and has posted at least 100 total yards in each of the last three games. He is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 6.
Huddle Up: Allen is coming off a disappointing Week 4 performance but has been targeted at least 10 times in three of the four games in 2021. He should receive a similar workload this week and can be a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 6.
Huddle Up: Ekeler posted his first 100-yard game of the season last week and has been targeted 20 times in the passing game over the last three weeks. He will continue to be a main part of the offense and should be a starting option in all leagues.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert completed 25-of-38 passes for 222 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 4 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: Herbert's yardage total was a season low, but he has seven total touchdown passes over the past two games. He has emerged as a bona fide QB1 in all fantasy leagues. The Chargers host the Cleveland Browns in Week 5.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler rushed 15 times for a career-high 117 yards and a touchdown in Week 4 against the Las Vegas Raiders, and he added three grabs for 28 yards and a score on five targets. He has a career-high 97 rushing yards between the tackles, and a career-high 83 rush yards before first contact, too.
Huddle Up: Ekeler produced his first 100-yard rushing game since Dec. 8, 2019 in Jacksonville, and it was just the second 100-yard game of his career. He has emerged as a solid low-end RB1 in most fantasy leagues. Ekeler and the Chargers square off with the Cleveland Browns in Week 5.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Larry Rountree registered 31 rushing yards on 11 carries in Week 4 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: Rountree averaged 2.8 yards per attempt, giving Austin Ekeler a breather. As long as the latter is healthy, Rountree has fantasy appeal only in the deepest of leagues at the moment.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams ended up with just one catch for 11 yards on four targets in Week 4 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: Fantasy managers relying upon Williams were left with an empty feeling, as he just didn't come close to delivering after going for at least seven grabs, at least 82 yards and at least one touchdown in each of his first three outings. He'll look to rebound from this devastating stat line in Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Justin Jackson rushed three times for minus-4 yards and he had four grabs for 17 yards on four targets in Week 4 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: The Chargers had another nice win, and the team is feeling good about themselves, but Jackson's night was a disaster. As long as Austin Ekeler is healthy, Jackson doesn't warrant much in the way of fantasy consideration.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Donald Parham posted two catches for 17 yards and a touchdown on three targets in Week 4 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: The touchdown was nice, but he has just three catches for 36 yards on five targets across the past three games. As long as Jared Cook is healthy, Parham has little to no fantasy appeal.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen posted seven grabs for 36 yards on a game-high 11 targets in Week 4 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: The high volume of receptions was nice, but his yardage total was a season low and he has averaged just 5.73 yards per grab on 15 receptions over the past two games. He'll look to bounce back in Week 5 against the visiting Cleveland Browns.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Jared Cook ended up with six receptions for a game-high 70 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in Week 4 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: This was easily Cook's best game of the season, as he had just 10 grabs for 111 yards on 16 targets with no scores prior to this. He has some low-end TE1 ability if he can develop and maintain a rapport with QB Justin Herbert. The Chargers host the Cleveland Browns in Week 5.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (ankle) fully practiced Saturday, Oct. 2, and he did not receive an injury designation entering Week 4.
Huddle Up: This is reassuring after consecutive limited practices. The standout receiver doesn't leave lineups, and the upcoming battle with Las Vegas on Monday Night Football pits him against a unit that has allowed only one WR score over 48 catches. Five wideouts have at least 13.6 PPR points against them, and a trio of managed six or more grabs, including a dozen from Miami Dolphins rookie Jaylen Waddle.
