| Chargers rule out Mike Williams, Justin Jackson|
Back issue for Williams, calf strain for Jackson
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 27, 3:00 pm
|With RB Justin Jackson ruled out due to a calf strain, Chargers HC Anthony Lynn said Melvin Gordon could play on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins in a limited role. Gordon, currently on the NFL’s two-week exempt list, will travel with the team to Miami. (Eric Williams on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The Chargers are heading into their matchup with the Dolphins lacking depth. Given the injury to Jackson, Melvin Gordon could get some run in this game although it's likely it won't be much. Troymaine Pope and Detrez Newsome could see action at running back as well. With Travis Benjamin listed as Doubftul, the Chargers will have Keenan Allen, Dontrelle Inman and Geremy Davis as their top three wide receivers.

FFToday's Take: Ian Rapoport's report on Williams suggested he is a gametime decision. If he does avoid the inactive list, it sounds he will be limited in the game. Travis Benjamin could see a few extra targets in a game expected to be on the slower side between the Chargers and Lions.

Listed as questionable

|Chargers HC Anthony Lynn said Mike Williams (knee) will be a game-time decision. "I just need to see that he can go out and play, and not hurt himself," Lynn said. "He has a couple more days, so we'll go day by day." (Eric Williams on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Williams injured his knee in Week 1 and missed practice Wednesday and Thursday this week. Even if he plays, it will be hard to trust Williams in fantasy lineups as he could be limited. The Chargers will be leaning on Keenan Allen and Austin Ekeler on offense this week with Travis Benjamin an Dontrelle Inman seeing increased roles.
