Chargers.com - [Full Article]

Chargers TE Ladarius Green has made one thing known in his sophomore year in the NFL; when the ball gets in his hands, good things happen.

At 6-6, 240-pounds, he’s quickly making his presence felt with big play after big play. After appearing in only four games as a rookie, Green is blossoming before the Bolts very eyes. In 10 games this year, he has caught 11 balls for 229 yards, averaging a gaudy 20.8 yards per catch. His best game came Sunday against the Dolphins with an impressive four reception, 81-yard effort. Both were career highs for the Louisiana-Lafayette product.

Over the course of the season, Philip Rivers has learned that when he gives number 89 a chance to make a play, he’ll usually be rewarded.

“It was just some of the way those plays came up,” Rivers said. “We know what he’s capable of and he’s going to continue to have a role for us in the passing game and in the running game. He was big for us with a couple of big catches.”

Fantasy Impact:

Green could end up seeing some more targets with Keenan Allen a bit banged up after this week, although expected to be ok. Still, Green is a threat even with Antonio Gates because Vincent Brown has mostly been used as a blocker at WR and Eddie Royal is an up-and-down WR3.

Right knee of Chargers WR Keenan Allen wrapped, iced on Chargers sideline.

Fantasy Impact:

Allen never returned to the game. If he were to miss time, Vincent Brown and Eddie Royal would likely have to play bigger roles.

Union-Tribune San Diego - [Full Article]

WR Keenan Allen, the youngest player on the Chargers roster, was 20 when drafted in April, is among the team's biggest surprises this year.

Allen has caught 23 passes for 369 yards and two touchdowns the past four games, a run that becomes more impressive when considering his growing pains months ago. Moving forward, confidence management is key.

Fantasy Impact:

Allen has really stepped up since the loss of Malcom Floyd and has emerged as Philip Rivers go-to WR - seemingly over Eddie Royal, who got off to a great start, and Vincent Brown, who has yet to really get things going this season. We're respecting Allen too, and rank him as a WR1 play this week.

Chargers WR Malcom Floyd is heading to Injured Reserve, out for the season.

Fantasy Impact:

Floyd's agent said he'll be back next season, but for this year he's done after getting hurt in Week 2. The Chargers will go with Keenan Allen, Vincent Brown and Eddie Royal. The team also just signed Lavelle Hawkins.

Former Titans receiver Lavelle Hawkins is signing with the Chargers today.

Fantasy Impact:

This is likely an indication that Malcom Floyd won't be back in the near future. Keenan Allen, Vincent Brown and Eddie Royal will continue to see the most work.

San Diego Union Tribune - [Full Article]

Chargers HC Mike McCoy spoke about the lack of touches for WR Vincent Brown:

"There may be something where Vincent may be number one in the progression, but a coverage changes so you do not get it to him," McCoy said. "It’s not like we’re not trying to get him the ball. It’s just Philip taking what the defense is giving him. All the receivers have done a great job of having the flexibility to move them around. In some of the no-huddle we have run, whether they are an X receiver or a Z receiver, they have done everything we've asked them to do. His touches will come.”

Fantasy Impact:

Brown leads all Charger receivers in snaps and pass routes run by a wide margin, so the production should eventually come.

Chargers WR Malcom Floyd, who was carted off in Week 2 against the Eagles, is getting a second opinion. But out indefinitely, source says. In a neck brace for at least a week.

Fantasy Impact:

Floyd joined his teammates on their flight home Sunday night and the team said he would be "fine." However, he's now going to miss some time. Keenan Allen, Vincent Brown and Eddie Royal will take over the workload until Floyd comes back.
