Chargers to sign RB Dexter McCluster

ESPN - [Full Article]

Looking for a replacement for injured running back Danny Woodhead, the San Diego Chargers have found their man.

The Chargers announced on Tuesday they have signed former Tennessee Titans and Kansas City Chiefs running back Dexter McCluster.

Related players: Melvin Gordon

Fantasy Impact:

McCluster makes sense for the Chargers because of his familiarity with the team's offensive scheme from his time with the Titans when San Diego offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt served as that team's head coach. And like Woodhead, McCluster is a change-of-pace back who can be used in passing situations and in the return game.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Jamaal Charles is expected make his 2016 debut against the Jets in Week 3, something coach Andy Reid wasn’t willing to say when he met reporters on Monday. Reid said that Charles told him last week that he wasn’t quite ready to get back on the field yet, but that he’s “made a lot of improvement.”

Reid also said that the team wants to be sure Charles is fully recovered because “we’re not playing tiddlywinks” and that he thinks Charles will be the same player he was before the injury once he does return to action.

“Yeah, I think so — I think so,” Reid said, via the Kansas City Star. “I thought last week he looked good. Last week, you see him getting in and out of his cuts and looking like Jamaal. It’s just a matter of the endurance part and his security in how he feels about that, about the leg, and what the docs say.”

Fantasy Impact:

When the Chiefs and Charles do feel he’s ready for action, the presence of Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West allows them to keep Charles from doing too much too soon, the story said.
