San Diego Chargers

OUT
T King Dunlap (ankle), LB Kyle Emanuel (concussion), DT Sean Lissemore (shoulder)

QUESTIONABLE
TE Ladarius Green (ankle), WR Stevie Johnson (groin)

PROBABLE
T Chris Hairston (abdomen), CB Steve Williams (hip)

Oakland Raiders

OUT
S Nate Allen (knee), DE Mario Edwards (neck)

QUESTIONABLE
CB Neiko Thorpe (neck)

PROBABLE
WR Amari Cooper (foot), DE Khalil Mack (knee), WR Seth Roberts (abdomen), S Charles Woodson (shoulder)

Fantasy Impact:

Stevie Johnson was listed as doubtful last week, so this is an upgrade. He's not a great start after a long layoff, but would probably see 7-10 targets as the team's primary receiver. His return would put a dent in Dontrelle Inman's upside.

Stevie Johnson back at practice

Union-Tribune - [Full Article]

Chargers wide receiver Stevie Johnson returned to practice Tuesday.

A groin injury had sidelined Johnson since he exited the Dec. 6 game against Denver.

Fantasy Impact:

With the next game Thursday at Oakland, Johnson won't have much time to get back up to speed, the story pointed out. Johnson would likely assume the team's WR1 role if he plays but he's not a sure thing on a short week and owners should continue to monitor his progress.

Chargers WR Dontrelle Inman (neck, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 15. It appears that Inman is going to return this week. He’s a Sneaky Start, especially if Ladarius Green sits. Prior to his injury, Inman had eight catches for 114 yards and a TD on 14 total targets in Week 11 and Week 12, and that was with Stevie Johnson in the lineup. With Johnson out, Inman could see the most targets of the San Diego wideouts.

Friday, December 18, 2015, 6:32pm

Chargers WR Stevie Johnson (groin, doubtful) missed practice all week and is doubtful for Week 15. Johnson doesn’t look likely to make his return this week. Dontrelle Inman looks like the best play in the San Diego receiving corps, though Maclom Floyd’s deep speed makes him an interesting dart throw in a nice matchup with the Dolphins.

Chargers WR Stevie Johnson (groin) missed practice again Thursday. Johnson doesn’t look likely to make his return this week.

Friday, December 11, 2015, 6:22pm

Chargers WRs Stevie Johnson (groin, out) and Dontrelle Inman (neck, out) missed practice all week and are out for Week 14. Malcom Floyd, Javontee Herndon, Tyrell Williams and the newly re-signed Vincent Brown will lead the way against the Chiefs. Ladarius Green could see a lot of playing time in two-TE sets.

Thursday, December 10, 2015, 6:31pm

Chargers WR Stevie Johnson (groin) missed practice again Thursday. Johnson was unable to finish the game last week so we doubt he’ll be able to return to face the Chiefs.

Stevie Johnson injures groin

Sunday, December 6, 2015, 8:34pm

Union-Tribune - [Full Article]

In the second half, Chargers WR Stevie Johnson exited with a groin injury.

Fantasy Impact:

Dontrelle Inman was carted off with a neck injury, too, so the Bolts are very banged up at the position. Malcom Floyd, Javontee Herndon and Tyrell Williams are next up on the depth chart. This puts a little dent in the value of Philip Rivers who has some nice fantasy playoff matchups on the horizon.

Friday, November 20, 2015, 6:29pm

Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (shoulder, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 11. Floyd will reportedly attempt to play through the injury, but he won’t be able to do so this week. Stevie Johnson, Dontrelle Inman and Javontee Herndon are the top three receivers on the depth chart. Johnson is a fantasy WR2 while Inman holds some WR3/flex appeal.

Thursday, November 19, 2015, 5:53pm

Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday. Floyd will reportedly attempt to play through the injury, but he’s not likely to do so this week. For now, we’re assuming he’s out. Stevie Johnson, Dontrelle Inman and Javontee Herndon are the top three receivers on the depth chart.

Friday, October 23, 2015, 7:16pm

Chargers WR Stevie Johnson (hamstring, questionable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 7. Johnson is tentatively on track to return against the Raiders. With Keenan Allen and Antonio Gates both banged up, this is good news for Philip Rivers and Co.

Stevie Johnson OUT vs. Packers

Sunday, October 18, 2015, 3:22pm

Chargers Inactives
King Dunlap T
Orlando Franklin OG
Stevie Johnson WR
Craig Mager CB
Manti Te'o LB
Chris Watt C
Tourek Williams LB

Fantasy Impact:

With Stevie Johnson out, Antonio Gates is again a great play at TE and should pick up the slack, especially in the red zone. Even Ladarius Green could see more snaps at TE if the team looks to play more two-TE sets.
