Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (toe) missed practice again Thursday. Ellington was supposed to return this week, but it’s not looking good. David Johnson would continue to be a top 10 play as long as Ellington is out.

Antonio Gates hints at return in 2016

Union-Tribune - [Full Article]

Antonio Gates is coming back for another season.

Oh, the most Gates will outright commit to is that he’s leaning that way. But everything he says indicates the tight end’s Hall of Fame induction will be delayed a year.

This revelation is perhaps a silver lining for a franchise slogging through 3-10 season.

“I don’t want to go out this kind of way,” Gates said Sunday night. “I don’t want to go out as a loser. Winning is the way, ideally, you want to go out. … I want to make one more run at it, and then if it doesn’t work, be like, ‘OK.’ That’s just my feeling right now.”

Fantasy Impact:

Officially, Gates said he will take a month or so after the season to critically assess his own desire and ability, as well as how the Chargers are moving forward.

Melvin Gordon can't hide from the ugly truth: His NFL maiden voyage looks like a bust.

The Chargers selected Gordon with the 15th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, believing the Wisconsin star could make an instant impact and serve as a steadying presence in the San Diego backfield.

Fantasy Impact:

It hasn't worked out that way. Gordon has yet to put together a 100-yard performance or find the end zone. He leads the AFC in fumbles with six and was benched Sunday for the second time this season for his inability to protect the football. Gordon says he's going to get better but for the rest of this season, in terms of fantasy, he can't be trusted in lineups.

Philip Rivers dealing with illness

Philip Rivers isn't feeling well. The Chargers aren't taking any chances.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reported Saturday that Rivers is ill and the Chargers have signed quarterback Brad Sorensen off their practice squad, according to a source.

Fantasy Impact:

Rivers, who has never missed a game since becoming San Diego's starter in 2006, is expected to play on Sunday against the Chiefs so that's the good news. He practiced in full on Thursday and Friday and is listed as probable (foot, illness). Rivers will be backed up by Kellen Clemens and Stevens. Keep in mind, it's a poor matchup against the Chiefs and Rivers is missing a lot of his WR weapons.

Friday, December 11, 2015, 6:22pm

Chargers QB Philip Rivers (foot, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 14. Rivers will be fine to face the Chiefs, though he’s not an attractive start given the matchup and his previous performance against Kansas City (178 yards, 1 INT).

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.

Friday, December 11, 2015, 6:22pm

Chargers TE Ladarius Green (ankle, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 14. Green should see plenty of playing time given the current state of the Charger WR corps, but that doesn’t always translate to production.

Thursday, December 10, 2015, 6:31pm

Chargers QB Philip Rivers (foot) took full practice reps Thursday after being limited Wednesday. Rivers should be fine to face the Chiefs, though he’s not an attractive start given the matchup and his previous performance against Kansas City (178 yards, 1 INT).
