Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee, questionable) took full practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 12. It looks like Benjamin will return this week. He’s difficult to trust in a bad matchup coming off of a knee injury.

Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz (shoulder) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week. Fiedorowicz is the #5 TE since Week 4, and has the #9 per game average in that span. He will be fine to face the Chargers.

Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle, ribs) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Miller only had an ankle injury last week and now he’s dealing with sore ribs as well. He should be able to play against the Chargers.

Chargers sign RB Ronnie Hillman

Tuesday, November 22, 2016, 7:08pm

Fox Sports - [Full Article]

The San Diego Chargers added depth to their backfield by signing former Broncos and Vikings running back Ronnie Hillman.

Hillman, a former San Diego State Aztec, was released by the Vikings this week after playing in five games for them. The Chargers released WR Griff Whalen in a corresponding move.

Hillman has been in the league for five years (debuted in 2012), and crazy enough is still only 25 years old.

Fantasy Impact:

The Chargers don't have much depth behind Melvin Gordon who has seen a big workload this year but especially the last few weeks. The team talked about getting Kenneth Farrow more work but it hasn't happened. Hillman struggled in Minnesota but could provide the Chargers some depth at the position, and they should be pretty familiar with Hillman seeing him twice a year the last couple of seasons.

Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) back at practice

Chargers coach Mike McCoy gave his players the entire bye week off with the hope that some of the injured players could heal up and make it back to the practice field.

With players returning to Chargers Park for a Monday practice, it appears that McCoy accomplished his goal.

Receiver Travis Benjamin, who missed San Diego’s loss to the Miami Dolphins two weeks ago with a sprained right knee, practiced on Monday and appears on track to play on Sunday against the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Impact:

Benjamin said he got time to relax and get healthy during the bye week, and felt good getting back to practice.

Dolphins hoping WR DeVante Parker stepping up

Tuesday, November 15, 2016, 9:10am

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Miami Dolphins were hurting at receiver last week. Starters Jarvis Landry (shoulder) and Kenny Stills (calf) both missed significant practice time leading into Sunday’s win over the San Diego Chargers because of injuries.

Miami needed an X-factor to step up offensively and got one in second-year wide receiver DeVante Parker. The former first-round pick led the Dolphins with 103 receiving yards on five receptions. Parker had the longest gain of the day for Miami with a 56-yard reception in the second half.

Fantasy Impact:

Parker has tons of talent and potential but has mostly been quiet this season. The Dolphins had high expectations for Parker entering his second season, but a nagging hamstring injury has slowed him since training camp. He missed the regular-season opener and had his first 100-yard game in Week 2 against the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Impact:

Williams (knee) will play today but Benjamin (knee) is out. Dontrelle Inman could see a bump in catches as a result. TE Hunter Henry will also play which could put a dent in Antonio Gates end numbers but the team could use more two-TE sets.
