Los Angeles Chargers News

Joshua Kelley, Two catches in loss

Kelley carried the ball once for five yards while also catching two of three targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 28-13 loss to the Broncos.

Analysis: Kelley's longest pass reception went for 17 yards in which he hurdled over a Denver defender to almost get the first down. The 2020 fourth-round pick was on the field for 23 percent of all offensive snaps. Other backup running back Justin Jackson did not play an offensive snap, and Larry Rountree was inactive because of a coach's decision, two major positive signs for Kelley. Darius Bradwell did make his 2021 season debut and played sparingly, but at least for the moment the second-year back seems to be the top of a complicated running back depth chart.

Darius Bradwell, Reverts back to practice squad

Bradwell reverted to the Chargers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

Analysis: Bradwell made his NFL debut against the Broncos in Week 12, but he failed to catch the only target he saw on seven offensive snaps. The running back also played 10 snaps on special teams.

Mike Williams, Non-factor once more

Williams caught four of his eight targets for 39 yards in Sunday's 28-13 loss to the Broncos.

Analysis: Justin Herbert repeatedly tried to connect with Williams on a number of deep throws, but the end result saw the big-bodied target held under 50 yards for the fourth time in the last six games. After a blazing start to the season which appeared to highlight a rejuvenated Williams, the Chargers have essentially transitioned away from the 27-year-old as a top target, instead turning to Keenan Allen as the main focal point.

Hunter Henry, Two catches in Week 12

Henry, who logged 41 of a possible 60 snaps in Sunday's 36-13 win over the Titans, caught two of his five targets for 16 yards in the contest, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Meanwhile, fellow tight end Jonnu Smith saw action on 34 snaps and caught three of his four targets for 49 yards against his former team. Henry's now had back-to-back quiet outings and profiles as a TD-dependent option in Week 13 fantasy lineups, while facing a tough Bills' pass defense on the road this coming Sunday night.

Melvin Gordon, Leading rusher against Bolts

Gordon carried the ball 17 times for 83 yards and caught one of two targets for five yards in Sunday's 28-13 win over the Chargers.

Analysis: While he was more effective on the ground than Javonte Williams, it was the rookie who scored a rushing TD and made a much bigger impact as a receiver. Gordon also saw his four-game touchdown streak end, but he'll look to start a new one in Week 13 against Kansas City.
