Chargers Beat: Team seems unlikely to do anything radical at WR

Union-Tribune - [Full Article]

The Chargers seem unlikely to do anything radical from a personnel standpoint in the aftermath of Keenan Allen’s injury.

Generally speaking, there is little to do.

Maneuvering a trade is easier said than done. This is not like baseball, a sport in which a left-handed bat simply can be plugged into the clean-up spot. Any wide receiver who joins the club would need to learn the playbook on the fly and build a rapport with quarterback Philip Rivers. That is partly why such midseason deals are fairly uncommon in the NFL.

Fantasy Impact: 

Isaiah Burse, Dontrelle Inman, Travis Benjamin and Tyrell Williams look like they will have to pick things with Allen out. Dom Williams could be added from the practice squad, the story said. It doesn't appear likely James Jones will return at this point, according to the story. Williams could see the biggest jump in playing time with Allen out.
