Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (ankle) was not at practice on Wednesday. Williams didn't practice at all last week and was held out of the Week 12 win over the Arizona Cardinals. The 28-year-old still has two more days to get back on the practice field, but he's not off to a good start this week. Williams is a must-start fantasy wideout when he's healthy in this strong Chargers offense, but he's trending towards being questionable for a divisional clash with the Las Vegas Raiders this Sunday. If he's out or limited, the Chargers will continue to roll with Keenan Allen, Joshua Palmer and DeAndre Carter as their top three receivers. Allen is a must-start regardless, but Palmer and Carter would both remain attractive flex plays for fantasy managers if Williams misses another contest.
The Los Angeles Chargers defense/special teams recorded one sack, one interception, and one fumble recovery while allowing 24 points to the Arizona Cardinals in a Week 12 win. Although this marked the first Chargers interception since Week 7, Los Angeles' defense continued to be carved up on the ground and on the scoreboard. The Chargers DST will not be an enticing option against the Las Vegas Raiders next week and should remain on waiver wires in all fantasy formats.
Los Angeles Chargers kicker Cameron Dicker was successful on his lone field goal attempt and both of his extra-point opportunities in a 25-24 victory over the Arizona Cardinals. Dicker was not asked to do too much on Sunday as the Chargers opted to go for two following the game's final touchdown with 15 seconds remaining. Still, he is yet to miss on any attempt this season and will be a secure fantasy option moving forward with Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) on injured reserve. Dicker will be worth starting again next week in a divisional bout with the Las Vegas Raiders.
Los Angeles Chargers tight end Gerald Everett finished with just four receptions for 18 yards but came up clutch with a successful two-point conversion catch to seal a 25-24 victory over the Arizona Cardinals. Until the game's final moments, this was an underwhelming performance for Everett against a Cardinals' defense that has been dreadful against tight ends all season. Although his target numbers may continue to decrease with Keenan Allen now healthy, Everett can be started as a low-end TE1 in another plus-matchup with the Las Vegas Raiders next week.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Joshua Palmer hauled in five of his seven targets for 56 yards in a 25-24 victory over the Arizona Cardinals. From a fantasy perspective, Palmer took a backseat to DeAndre Carter, Austin Ekeler, and Keenan Allen on Sunday after exploding for 106 yards and two touchdowns in Week 11. It's becoming increasingly difficult to predict Palmer's weekly output, making him a boom-or-bust WR3 or flex option moving forward. His fantasy appeal next week against the Las Vegas Raiders could largely depend on the availability of Mike Williams (ankle).
