Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry (knee) had eight receptions for 100 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Week 6 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Returning from a four-game absence, Henry led the team in receptions and receiving yards, and he accounted for both of their TDs. His injury history will always be cause for concern, but he's arguably a top-five TE when healthy. If someone cut him loose when he was hurt, grab him immediately.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams was targeted 10 times in Week 6, catching five passes for 72 yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Williams has looked good since returning from injury, topping 70 yards receiving in both games. He still doesn't have a touchdown this season, which is a major disappointment after the 6-foot-4 wideout caught 10 of them in 2018. He remains a quality WR3 option.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen caught two passes for 33 yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, Oct. 13.
Huddle Up: After an excellent start, Allen has managed a total of 11 receptions, 99 yards and no TDs over the last three games combined. His struggles have coincided with some poor all-around play on offense, so getting Allen the ball more often could be a focus. He needs to remain in your starting lineup.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler gained 14 yards on five carries against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 6. He also had 14 yards on three catches.
Huddle Up: LA's offense never got going until late, and Ekeler was used sparingly with a season-low eight touches. The Chargers need to find ways to work around their o-line trouble, which could mean more short passes. Ekeler should stay in RB3 territory against the Titans in Week 7.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon rushed eight times for 18 yards during the team's Week 6 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Gordon also caught three passes for 30 yards.
Huddle Up: Gordon's return has not reinvigorated the Chargers' offense, and you have to wonder how much better things are going to get with so many key injuries to the offensive line. A Week 7 showdown with the Titans certainly doesn't look very appealing at this stage.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers completed 26 of his 44 passes for 320 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the team's Week 6 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Rivers also had a backward pass returned for a touchdown.
Huddle Up: Rivers was brutal with a capital "B" for much of Sunday night, turning the ball over early and sticking his team in a 14-point hole. He picked it up late, leading the Bolts to a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns, but his final pass of the game was a terrible interception. Poor offensive line play is part of the issue, but Rivers needs to step up his game. He's looking at a tough matchup with a desperate Titans squad in Week 7.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry (knee) appears to be trending toward playing in Week 6's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Henry was listed as questionable on the injury report after logging two limited practice sessions and one full session during the week. He should be viewed as a somewhat risky option from a fantasy standpoint because he has missed several games, making his role in the passing attack uncertain.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon is expected to see more snaps in Week 6 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to head coach Anthony Lynn.
Huddle Up: Gordon managed just 38 total yards on 16 touches in his season debut in Week 5, but with another week to shake off the rust and the potential for a bigger workload, he could creep into RB2 territory.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 11, but is listed as questionable for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Henry appears to have a decent chance to play this week, but his role in the passing game is uncertain since he has missed the last few games. He is usually a starting option when healthy but will be a risky option this week.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Justin Jackson (calf) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 11, and is listed as doubtful for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Melvin Gordon probably will see more playing time this week, but Austin Ekeler will continue to have a solid role in the offense. Gordon can be considered a No. 2 running back, while Ekeler should be a flex option.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry (knee) remained a limited participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 10.
Huddle Up: Henry's return date remains unknown after sustaining the injury in Week 1. He'll enter back into a prominent role in the offense once cleared to return, and needs to be stashed until such a time arrives.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Justin Jackson (calf) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 9.
Huddle Up: Jackson probably will miss another game if he does not practice at some point this week. Melvin Gordon may receive a bigger role in the offense, but Austin Ekeler will still be involved. Fantasy players can consider Gordon a No. 2 running back or flex option, while Ekeler can be a flex option.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry (knee) will practice in a limited role Wednesday, Oct. 9.
Huddle Up: Henry hasn't played since Week 1 with the Chargers getting little-to-no production from the tight end position in his absence. He'll enter back into a sizable role as soon as he's declared ready for game action. He should be scooped up wherever available.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry (knee) may try to participate in practice this week and his status for Week 6 is uncertain, according to head coach Anthony Lynn. Lynn said Hunter was moving around well while working with trainers last week.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players can monitor the situation because Henry probably will need at least one week of practice before he is ready to play. He would be a risky option this week if he plays.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen caught four of his six targets for 18 yards in a 20-13 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 5.
Huddle Up: Philip Rivers struggled overall in the loss, and shutting down Allen was clearly a priority for the Broncos. Still, he delivers strong results more often than not, and Allen should bounce back against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 6. Don't hit the panic button.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler rushed three times for seven yards and caught 15 of his 17 targets for 86 yards in a 20-13 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 5.
Huddle Up: Ekeler was targeted early and often after the Chargers fell behind early, but fantasy owners shouldn't ignore the fact that he was barely used in the run game now that Melvin Gordon is back in the mix. Ekeler isn't going to catch 15 passes every game, and he could be more of a PPR flex option going forward.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon rushed 12 times for 31 yards and caught four passes for seven yards in a 20-13 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 5.
Huddle Up: Gordon struggled with efficiency in his season debut, but the fact that he saw 16 touches out of the gate is a good indicator that he will quickly resume his heavy workload. He's a solid bet for RB2 numbers against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 6.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) is officially active for the team's Week 5 game.
Huddle Up: Williams should see a solid amount of targets this week against the Denver Broncos and can be at least a No. 3 fantasy receiver.

Los Angeles Chargers RBs Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler will split carries during the Week 5 game because Gordon is not ready for a full workload, according to head coach Anthony Lynn.
Huddle Up: Gordon and Ekeler will both have fantasy value even though they will be splitting the work. Both players can be flex options in fantasy leagues.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 4, but is listed as questionable for Week 5.
Huddle Up: Williams likely will be in uniform this week after missing the Week 4 game. He will be facing a solid Denver Broncos defense but can still be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Justin Jackson (calf) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 4, and is listed as doubtful for Week 5.
Huddle Up: Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler likely will share snaps at running back this week and both can be at least flex options in fantasy leagues.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Justin Jackson (calf) didn't participate in practice for a second straight day Thursday, Oct. 3.
Huddle Up: Jackson's fantasy window is already closed with RB Melvin Gordon expected to resume close to his normal workload this week against the Denver Broncos. Jackson can still be stashed in dynasty and deep keeper formats.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) remained limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 3.
Huddle Up: Williams is unlikely to be at full health even if he's able to suit up Sunday. The fourth-year pro is yet to find the end zone this season, but he's a prime buy-low candidate from any fantasy managers who may be growing frustrated.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon will play and could start Sunday, Oct. 6, when the Chargers host the Denver Broncos, head coach Anthony Lynn said Thursday, Oct. 3. 'He's getting more work (in practice) this week, and he's definitely going to have a workload this week, but not too big,' Lynn said during a SiriusXM NFL Radio interview Thursday. 'I want to work him in, but I don't want to overdo it.'
Huddle Up: Good news for those who took the mid-round draft risk on Gordon, but tough news for owners of one of fantasy's elite backs so far in Austin Ekeler. Consider Gordon a high-end flex play this week with an expected tempered workload to start, while Ekeler falls into low-end RB2 range.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry (knee) was on the field in shorts and a t-shirt working on his own Wednesday, Oct. 2, although officially he was listed as having not practiced. Beat writer Jeff Miller said it is the first time Henry has been seen during the media portion of practice since Week 1.
Huddle Up: Henry is apparently making some slow progress, but fantasy owners will want to see him practice in full. He should also be kept reserved in all leagues until he can officially make it through a full game without any setbacks before trusting him again.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 2.
Huddle Up: Williams was not able to play last week but appears to have a solid chance to play in Week 5. He has recorded eight catches and 157 yards in three games and can be considered a No. 3 receiver or flex option if he plays.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Justin Jackson (calf) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 2.
Huddle Up: Jackson was not able to play in Week 4 and will miss another game he does not return to practice. Austin Ekeler remains the starter for now, but Melvin Gordon will continue to receive more work over the next few weeks. Both running backs should be at least flex options.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen pulled down five balls for 48 yards on six targets in Week 4 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: The yardage total was easily his lowest of the season, and it was the first time he wasn't targeted at least 10 times. In a blowout win, the Chargers kept the ball on the ground plenty, and Allen's fantasy numbers suffered. He'll look to bounce back in Week 5 against the visiting Denver Broncos.
