Keenan Allen and Mike Williams Considered Game-Time Calls vs. Raiders
December 17Michael ArinzeSportsGrid
Austin Ekeler’s status for tonight’s game is now probable per Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network. The Chargers running back is expected to play as he’s been hobbled by a quad injury.
However, the status of wide receivers Keenan Allen and Mike Williams is still up in the air at this time. Both players will be a game-time decision which suggests that even if they do play, they’re likely to be less than 100%.
Fantasy players might want to be cautious with both receivers going into the Thursday night game against the Raiders. It would even be prudent to wait until tonight’s inactives are announced before submitting your lineups. We’d still recommended Tyron Johnson as a possible option if any of the wide receivers can’t go tonight.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter also added the Chargers are concerned that even if Allen plays, he may be limited. Additionally, Williams is not expected to play. This would leave the Chargers very thin at the receiver position. It would be a huge knock to Justin Herbert and their entire offense.
