Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (concussion) suffered a concussion during the Week 17 game and will not return.
Huddle Up: Ekeler dealt with various injuries this season but should be the starting running back for the Chargers again next season. He should be a weekly starting option in 2021.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Jalen Guyton (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Guyton should be one of the starting receivers this week with Keenan Allen on the COVID-19 list. He likely will see a handful of targets in the Week 17 game and could be a possible flex option in deeper leagues.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Jalen Guyton (hamstring) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 31.
Huddle Up: Guyton should have a decent role in the passing game with Keenan Allen on track to miss another game. He will see a handful of targets against the Kansas City Chiefs and could be a flex option in some leagues.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Dec. 31.
Huddle Up: Allen was already unlikely to play in Week 17 with a hamstring injury that has bothered him since Week 15, so this announcement will seal the deal on him missing the season finale against the Kansas City Chiefs. Mike Williams figures to take on a more prominent role and can be used as a WR3 in most leagues, while Tyron Johnson and Jalen Guyton could have some flex value.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.
Huddle Up: Allen didn't play in Week 16 but needs just eight more yards to hit 1,000 for the season. It's tough to see him not taking the field in Week 17, but he may be left in the game against the Kansas City Chiefs just long enough for the milestone catch. He'll be a high-risk WR2 if active.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams caught four of his 10 targets for 54 yards in a 19-16 win over the Denver Broncos in Week 16.
Huddle Up: The 10 targets were a season high, but Williams has just a single 100-yard effort and has not had more than five receptions in a game. He is a flex option, at best.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler rushed 10 times for 45 yards and caught all three of his targets for 23 yards and a touchdown in a 19-16 win over the Denver Broncos in Week 16.
Huddle Up: The touchdown reception was just his second score of the year, but between his 10-plus carries per game and impact in the passing game, Ekeler remains a high-end RB2, especially in PPR formats.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert completed 21 of his 33 passes for 253 yards and a touchdown and rushed four times for 26 yards in a 19-16 win over the Denver Broncos in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Herbert threw one touchdown or less for the third time in his last five games, but he has enjoyed an excellent rookie campaign overall and will have QB1 upside in the season finale against the Chiefs.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) has been declared inactive for the Week 16 game.
Huddle Up: Mike Williams and Jalen Guyton should be the main receivers for the Chargers with Allen unable to play. Williams can be a No. 3 receiver, while Guyton can be a flex option after a terrific Week 15 performance. Austin Ekeler should also see a few more targets in the passing game, but he should already be a starting option in fantasy leagues.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 25, and is listed as questionable for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Allen probably will be a game-time decision, so fantasy players will need to check the inactive list. He can be a starting fantasy option if he is active for the game, but fantasy players will need other options ready in case he is ruled out.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 24.
Huddle Up: Allen is expected to be a game-time decision, so fantasy players will need to monitor his status over the next few days. He is a must-start option when healthy, but fantasy players should have other options available in case he is ruled out.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry (illness) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 23.
Huddle Up: Henry still has a good chance to play Sunday of Week 16, and he stands to see a significant increase in his workload with WR Keenan Allen bothered by a hamstring injury. Henry will need to be in fantasy lineups.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 23.
Huddle Up: Allen played just 24 snaps in the Chargers' Week 15 win over the Las Vegas Raiders. L.A. has an appealing Week 16 matchup against the Denver Broncos and not having Allen available would be very disappointing for fantasy managers.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Tyron Johnson had three catches for 61 yards and a touchdown in Week 15 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: A designated deep-shot option for most of 2020, Johnson has caught nine passes for 116 yards and two touchdowns over his last two games as Allen and Williams deal with injuries. As with Jalen Guyton, Johnson's appeal for Week 16 is tied to how the usual starters are feeling physically.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Jalen Guyton caught four passes for 91 yards against the Las Vegas Raiders on Thursday, Dec. 17.
Huddle Up: With Allen and Williams both limited by injuries, Guyton saw the most targets among the team's wideouts with six. He hauled in four of them and came agonizingly close to scoring the game-winning touchdown but was tackled inside the five and watched on as Herbert scored on a QB sneak. His Week 16 value will be determined by the statuses of Allen and Williams.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry caught five passes for 65 yards and a touchdown against the Las Vegas Raiders on Thursday, Dec. 17.
Huddle Up: Hunter was the only one of LA's top four offensive players not to carry an injury designation, and he led the team with seven targets. Henry hasn't had the big year many were expecting, but his weekly upside keeps him as a viable TE1.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) had two receptions for 22 yards during the team's Week 15 win over the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: It was a mild surprise that Williams was up on Thursday, so hopefully fantasy owners had already made alternate plans. Like Allen, Williams was on a snap count and took a backseat to the likes of Jalen Guyton and Tyron Johnson. Keep an eye on Williams' status heading into Week 16.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) had one reception for 17 yards in Week 15 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: One of the league's most consistent receivers this season, Allen caught just one ball in a performance that doubtless led to no shortage of expletives from frustrated fantasy owners that figured news about Allen being on a snap count were overblown. We'll see what shape Allen's hammy is in next weekend when the Bolts face the Broncos.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (quadriceps) carried the ball 13 times for 60 yards against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 15. He also caught four passes for 19 yards.
Huddle Up: Ekeler accounted for 60 of the team's 96 rushing yards but watched on as Herbert and Kalen Ballage both scored on one-yard plunges. Like many of the Chargers, Ekeler entered play dinged up, but he'll get a few extra days to rest up for Denver.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert completed 22 of 32 passes for 314 yards and two touchdowns against the Las Vegas Raiders on Thursday, Dec. 17. He also ran four times for 14 yards and a touchdown.
Huddle Up: Even with Keenan Allen and Mike Williams on snap counts due to injury, Herbert took advantage of a Raiders secondary that struggled to cover anyone throughout Thursday night. The rookie's big game almost came crashing down in overtime when he fumbled on the goalline, but Gabe Nabers recovered it and Herbert punched it in for the game-winning score on the next snap. He should be a QB1 against Denver in Week 16.

Updating an earlier report, Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) is unlikely to play in Week 15 Thursday, Dec. 17.
Huddle Up: Tyron Johnson's stock just grew to a high-end WR3 against the Las Vegas Raiders. If Keenan Allen (hamstring) is out as well, he could be a WR2.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Tyron Johnson could be relied upon heavily if WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) or WR Mike Williams (back) are out Thursday, Dec. 17.
Huddle Up: Johnson caught six of seven targets for 55 yards and a touchdown last week. Austin Ekeler (quadriceps) is also banged up, but he'll play. Johnson has a 12-276-2 line on the season, and he could wind up being a slam dunk play to get you into the next round of the playoffs. Keep an eye on the inactives report.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (quadriceps) is expected to play Thursday, Dec. 17, against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: He'll be an RB2 in PPR leagues and has regained his hold as the leader of the backfield.
