Chicago Bears PK Michael Badgley has been elevated from the practice squad to the active roster for Week 4.
Huddle Up: With starter Cairo Santos listed as questionable and not traveling with the team, it appears Badgley will indeed get the nod in Week 4. Look for help elsewhere, though, as Badgley has been very inconsistent during his career.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert (ribs) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 30, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.
Huddle Up: Herbert will be looking for a better performance this week after he struggled in Week 4. He will be without Keenan Allen again but can still be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 30, and has been ruled out for Week 4.
Huddle Up: Allen may have suffered a setback during practice this week, so it is not known how long he will be sidelined. Mike Williams and Joshua Palmer probably will be the main receiver for the Chargers. Williams can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in leagues, while Palmer could be a flex option.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (undisclosed) was not spotted on the field for the start of practice Friday, Sept. 30.
Huddle Up: At this point, all we know about Allen is that he left Thursday's practice early with a trainer. There has been no indication as of yet what the injury was, although most signs point to it being an aggravation of the hamstring injury that caused him to miss the last two games. Assuming that is the case and Allen can't play in Week 4, Josh Palmer once again will fill in and makes for a strong WR3 option.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert (ribs) practiced in full on Thursday, Sept. 29.
Huddle Up: Herbert's participation was an upgrade from Wednesday, so he'll likely suit up again in Week 4. Herbert is a QB1 and must be in lineups as long as he's active, but having to play through pain remains a concern.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.
Huddle Up: Allen was inactive for the Week 3 game but appears to have a chance to play this week. Fantasy players will need to check on his status later in the week because Allen should be a starting option in all leagues if active.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert (ribs) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.
Huddle Up: Herbert was able to play last week despite the injury but struggled during the game. He likely will be active for the Week 4 game and can still be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) is expected to practice this week.
Huddle Up: That sounds like he has a good chance to play in Week 4 against the Houston Texans. He'll be a great WR2, but he and his quarterback are still banged up with some re-injury concerns.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert (ribs) did not suffer any setbacks in the Week 3 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, head coach Brandon Staley said Monday, Sept. 26.
Huddle Up: Herbert and the Chargers were routed by the Jacksonville Jaguars, but at least Herbert is healthy and didn't aggravate his ailment. Fantasy managers hope Herbert can rebound at NRG Stadium in Week 4 against the Houston Texans, and he very well should.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Josh Palmer caught six of his nine targets for a team-high 99 yards in a 38-10 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 3.
Huddle Up: On a day when Mike Williams and Justin Herbert weren't connecting, Palmer stepped up and led the passing attack, but fantasy owners shouldn't overreact. With Keenan Allen likely returning soon, a repeat performance from Palmer probably isn't in the cards.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) has been declared inactive for the Week 3 game.
Huddle Up: DeAndre Carter and Joshua Palmer will have bigger role in the passing game with Allen sidelined, and both players could be at least flex options.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert (ribs) is officially active for the Week 3 game.
Huddle Up: Herbert is dealing with injured ribs but is ready to play against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He is a starting option in all fantasy leagues, but fantasy players may want to lower their expectations because of the injury.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert (ribs) is unsure if he'll play in Week 3 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. "That decision will be made Sunday," Herbert said on Friday, Sept. 23.
Huddle Up: Herbert seemed to be trending in the right direction with reports suggesting he looked good in practice, but it's possible the Chargers will play it safe with their star franchise quarterback. Fantasy managers will have to make other plans just in case but will have limited options if they choose to wait for the release of the inactives, as Los Angeles plays in the later slate. Chase Daniel is Herbert's backup but you can find better options on the waiver wire. For those understandably waiting it out, quarterbacks playing at 4:05 p.m. or later who should be available include 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo, Falcons QB Marcus Mariota, Seahawks QB Geno Smith, Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence, Giants QB Daniel Jones and Cowboys QB Cooper Rush.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler faces the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 3, and in two previous meetings with Jacksonville, he has compiled 332 yards from scrimmage and three touchdowns while averaging 12.9 yards per touch.
Huddle Up: Quarterback Justin Herbert is questionable to suit up for the game, which means that offense will likely run through Ekeler more than normal. His dominance against Jacksonville could continue this weekend.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Allen may some progress in practice this week, but fantasy players will not know his status until close to gametime. He is a weekly starting option when healthy, but players should have other options ready in case he sits out.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert (ribs) was limited in practice once again on Thursday, Sept. 22.
Huddle Up: Despite two limited sessions to start the week, Herbert has looked fine according to beat writers on the ground and should suit up in Week 3. He remains an elite QB1.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) was limited in practice once again on Thursday, Sept. 22.
Huddle Up: After not logging a single practice last week, Allen has begun this one with two limited sessions, which means he's making progress. Allen's Friday status will be worth monitoring, but it's possible he could play even if he has another limited session. If Allen sits, DeAndre Carter and Joshua Palmer would become dart-throw flex plays.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert (ribs) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert (ribs) looked like his normal self while throwing on Tuesday, Sept. 20, per source on Wednesday, Sept. 21.
SOURCE: Not available

Huddle Up: Herbert suffered a fracture in his rib cartilage and while it is good news to see he was throwing without issue, the question will be if he can protect it in a game and avoid a more serious issue. Herbert remains a rock-solid QB1 as long as he's playing.

SOURCE: Not available

Huddle Up: Herbert will have a few extra days to recover but is still uncertain for Week 3. Fantasy players will need to monitor his practice participation next week to see if he will play. He is a weekly starting option when healthy, but players will need a backup plan ready in case he sits out.

Updating an ongoing story, Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert (abdomen) isn't expected to have any issues going forward after briefly exiting the Week 2 game against the Kansas City Chiefs, according to head coach Brandon Staley. Staley said Herbert is dealing with an issue in his abdomen, possibly with his ribs.
SOURCE: Not available

Huddle Up: It sounds like Herbert should be good to go moving forward, and he should continue to headline a juggernaut of an offense.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams caught eight of his 11 targets for 113 yards and a touchdown in a 27-24 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 2.
SOURCE: Not available

Huddle Up: With Keenan Allen sidelined, Williams was the clear go-to guy in the passing attack. If Allen misses more time moving forward, Williams should be viewed as a potential WR1.
