Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (hamstring) will participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 25, according to head coach Anthony Lynn. The team will have 21 days to add him to the active roster.
Huddle Up: Ekeler appears to be close to returning to the lineup, so fantasy players will need to monitor the situation. He should be a weekly starting option in all leagues when he is ready to play again.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Kalen Ballage rushed 16 times for 44 yards and caught seven passes for 27 yards in a 34-28 win over the New York Jets in Week 11.
Huddle Up: Ballage didn't find much room to run, but he continued to handle a bulk of the backfield work. He should be a volume-based flex option as long as Austin Ekeler remains sidelined.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry caught four of his seven targets for 48 yards and a touchdown in a 34-28 win over the New York Jets in Week 11.
Huddle Up: Henry doesn't have much of a ceiling, but he has at least four catches and 30 yards in four straight games, and he has been targeted at least six times in three straight. He's a serviceable, low-end TE1.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams caught four of his seven targets for 72 yards and a touchdown in a 34-28 win over the New York Jets in Week 11.
Huddle Up: Williams has topped 70 yards in three of his last four games, but he has yet to top five receptions in any game. He remains a big-play, touchdown-dependent flex option.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen caught 16 of his 19 targets for 145 yards and a touchdown in a 34-28 win over the New York Jets in Week 11. He also lost a fumble.
Huddle Up: Allen has a touchdown in four straight games, and he has had at least nine catches in four of the last five contests. He has WR1 upside, especially in PPR formats.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert completed 37 of his 49 passes for 366 yards and three touchdowns in a 34-28 win over the New York Jets in Week 11.
Huddle Up: Hebert set a new career high in passing yards, topping 300 yards for the fifth time and tossing multiple touchdowns for the seventh straight game. The rookie has become a must-start QB1.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Kalen Ballage is expected to get more looks, and head coach Anthony Lynn said Wednesday, Nov. 18 that Ballage will most likely be the 'primary back'.
Huddle Up: Ballage has been used heavily since coming over from the Jets, posting 33 carries for 137 rushing yards and one score for the Bolts, while adding seven grabs for 49 yards on nine targets. Despite the fact he appears to be the lead back in L.A., he should only be treated as a RB3 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 11 against the New York Jets, one of his former teams.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry ended up with four receptions for 30 yards and a touchdown on six targets in Week 10 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Henry discovered the end zone for the first time since Week 5 in New Orleans on a Monday night. He has been consistent, going for three or more receptions in five straight, and eight of nine games overall. He is a solid low-end TE1 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. The Chargers host the Jets in Week 1.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams ended up with two catches for 38 yards on five targets in Week 10 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Williams didn't do much in this one, as it was a mostly ground-based attack for both sides. His fantasy production has been a little erratic, but he remains a respectable WR4 or flex option in most leagues of 12 or more teams. The Chargers host the Jets in Week 11.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen posted three receptions for a team-high 39 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in Week 10 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Allen has scored in three consecutive games, and four of the past five, while also going for three or more grabs in each of the previous four. He remains a solid WR2 in all PPR leagues, with slightly less appeal in standard play. The Chargers host the Jets in Week 11.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Joshua Kelley rushed seven times for just 21 yards in Week 10 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Kelley has been limited to nine or fewer carries and 32 or fewer rushing yards in each of the past three outings. He is only worth keeping around on a roster in the deepest of fantasy leagues at this point. The Chargers host the Jets in Week 11.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Kalen Ballage rushed 18 times for a team-high 68 yards in Week 10 against the Miami Dolphins, his former team, and he added five receptions for 34 yards on six targets.
Huddle Up: Ballage has emerged as a useful fantasy option in his two games for the Bolts, rushing 33 times for 137 yards and a score. Treat him as a RB3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 11 against the New York Jets, another one of his former teams.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert completed 20-of-32 passes for 187 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in Week 10 against the Miami Dolphins and he rushed for 10 yards and a score.
Huddle Up: Herbert has emerged as a useful fantasy option, posting two or more touchdowns in six straight outings, and he has rushed for three scores overall in eight contests. The Chargers face a favorable fantasy matchup in Week 11 against the Jets.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Kalen Ballage will be elevated from the practice squad for the Week 10 game against the Miami Dolphins, according to head coach Anthony Lynn.
Huddle Up: Ballage logged 84 total yards and a touchdown against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 9, and injuries to the Chargers' backfield have him primed for a large role once again. Ballage is a viable flex play.

Los Angeles Chargers DE Joey Bosa (concussion) on Friday, Nov. 13, was ruled out of the team's Week 10 game Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Bosa's concussion, suffered in the second half of the team's Week 8 game, has been tricky to overcome, and it will cost him a second straight game.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Justin Jackson (knee) on Friday, Nov. 13, was ruled out of the team's Week 10 game Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: No surprise here as Jackson was injured early in Week 9 and was unable to practice this week. RBs Kalen Ballage and Joshua Kelley figure to handle the backfield workload in his stead.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (hamstring) posted a video of himself on social media running sprints Thursday, Nov. 12. 'The time draws near,' Ekeler wrote in the post.
Huddle Up: Ekeler was handling a heavy workload prior to the injury, and when he does return, he should regain the lead role in short order.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert is among the league's highest-rated passers when being blitzed or being pressured in the pocket. He has posted a 121.3 passer rating against the blitz, third in the NFL behind Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes and Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr. He also has seven touchdowns when being blitzed while throwing just one interception with four sacks.
Huddle Up: Herbert will be under the gun against a Miami Dolphins defense which blitzes 34.8 percent of its snaps, but he should be able to handle it with aplomb. Herbert has risen to low-end QB1 or top QB2 status in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Justin Jackson (knee) didn't practice Wednesday, Nov. 11.
Huddle Up: If Jackson is forced to sit out Week 10, which seems a strong possibility, Joshua Kelley will be a top-end RB2 and Kalen Ballage could warrant deep FLEX consideration.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry caught four of seven targets for 33 yards in Week 9 versus the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: It's the third time in the last four games Henry has finished with exactly four grabs, and the 4-33-0 is the exact same one he posted in Week 8. He did have a shot at a late touchdown in this one, however, but he was held by Cory Littleton in the end zone and Gabe Nabers scored on the next play. It hasn't been a banner season by any means so far for Henry, but he seems to have established a seven-target floor. That kind of volume for a tight end will eventually pay off, leaving him as a decent TE1 moving forward, including in Week 10 against the Miami Dolphins.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams hauled in five of his seven targets for 81 yards in Week 9 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: Williams was so close to scoring a game-winning touchdown catch in the closing seconds, but he couldn't quite finish the catch on Justin Herbert's 50-50 throw to him in the back of the end zone. While his performances have been all over the place since Justin Herbert became the starter, Williams has at least five catches, seven targets and 81 receiving yards in three of his last four games. Fantasy owners should continue viewing him as a low-floor, high-ceiling WR3 in Week 10 against the Miami Dolphins.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen caught nine of his 11 targets for 103 yards and a touchdown in Week 9 versus the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: Allen entered the weekend with a questionable tag due to a sore throat and had to clear multiple COVID-19 screenings as a result, but it was just another day at the office for him after he got the OK. The 28-year-old has managed at least seven receptions and 10 targets in six of Justin Herbert's seven starts, giving him an incredibly high floor and huge ceiling. Allen is on his way to a career season pretty much across the board and should be considered a must-start every week regardless of the matchup.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Kalen Ballage ran for 69 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries and added two catches for 15 yards in Week 9 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: Ballage was called up from the practice squad on Saturday when it became clear Troymaine Pope wasn't going to play and promptly stepped up in a big way for Justin Jackson, who injured his knee on the opening drive and didn't touch the ball in this one. The Arizona State product figures to be a relatively hot waiver-wire add this week as a result of this effort, but caution is advised. Ballage has long been a below-average back in the league and there's no telling at this moment if Jackson will miss significant time.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert completed 28 of his 42 passes for 326 yards and two touchdowns in a 31-26 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 9.
Huddle Up: Herbert topped 300 yards for the fourth time this year, recording his fifth straight multi-touchdown game. The Chargers keep finding ways to lose game, but the rookie has established himself as a QB1 candidate.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Justin Jackson (knee) left the Week 9 game against the Las Vegas Raiders due to a knee injury and he is questionable to return.
Huddle Up: If Jackson cannot return it would be Kalen Ballage and Joshua Kelley holding down the fort in the L.A. backfield.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (illness) is officially active for the Week 9 game.
Huddle Up: Allen should receive his normal workload this week and will be one of the focal points in the passing game. He should be a No. 1 or No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.
