Mike Williams, Mike Williams Could Be Odd Man Out In 2024

The Athletic's Daniel Popper suggests that Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (knee) could be the odd man out among fellow receiver Keenan Allen and pass-rushers Joey Bosa and Khalil Mack this offseason. Williams and the other three players have huge salary cap hits this year after they were all restructured last offseason. Together, they are projected to account for close to 60% of the team's cap in 2024, according to Over the Cap. It's highly unlikely all four players will be on the roster this fall. Williams is coming off a torn ACL and has the second-highest receiver cap hit in the league at $32.46 million (Allen has the highest). If Williams is cut, the Chargers would save $20 million. And if Williams is gone, former first-rounder Quentin Johnston should have a much bigger role in his sophomore season after he was a big disappointment his rookie year.

Austin Ekeler, Chargers Expected To Let Austin Ekeler Explore Free Agency

The Los Angeles Chargers are expected to let impending free-agent running back Austin Ekeler explore free agency in 2024, according to league sources, which means they won't use the franchise tag on him. Ekeler was one of the biggest early round fantasy busts in 2023, as the 28-year-old finished with 628 rushing yards and five touchdowns on 179 carries in 14 games in his seventh year with the Chargers. He also had 51 receptions (74 targets) for 436 yards and one touchdown through the air. Ekeler has never had 1,000 yards rushing in his career and could face an uncertain future if he leaves LA. He's not going to be a first-round fantasy pick in fall drafts, but Ekeler has bounce-back potential if he's healthy and in a significant role, whether it be with the Chargers or another team.

Melvin Gordon, Ravens Sign Melvin Gordon III To Practice Squad

The Baltimore Ravens re-signed running back Melvin Gordon III to their practice squad on Friday and also elevated wide receiver Dan Chisena and linebacker Josh Ross from the practice squad to the 53-man active roster for Saturday's Divisional Round playoff game against the Houston Texans. The Ravens waived Gordon earlier this week to make room for Dalvin Cook on the active, but he's now back in Baltimore as extra RB depth. Cook will serve as the No. 3 back behind Gus Edwards and Justice Hill this weekend, while Gordon will most likely be a healthy scratch. Chisena, 26, was cut from the Arizona Cardinals' practice squad just under two weeks ago and now will give Baltimore extra receiver depth for the Divisional Round.

Melvin Gordon, Melvin Gordon III Likely To Rejoin Ravens Practice Squad

The Baltimore Ravens are likely to re-sign running back Melvin Gordon III to their practice squad after waiving him on Wednesday to make room for Dalvin Cook, according to a source. The 30-year-old had been limited to a reserve role since signing with the Ravens before the start of training camp in July and finished with only 26 carries for 81 yards and one touchdown during the regular season behind Gus Edwards and Justice Hill. In the Week 18 regular season finale, Gordon fumbled for the 19th time in his career, the most by a non-quarterback since 2015. The former 15th overall pick in the 2015 draft by the Chargers, Gordon has rushed for 6,543 yards and 56 touchdowns in nine NFL seasons, but he'll be nothing more than RB depth for the Ravens for as long as they stay alive in the postseason.

Melvin Gordon, Ravens Waive Melvin Gordon III

The Baltimore Ravens announced on Wednesday that they have waived running back Melvin Gordon III. Gordon's departure makes room on the active roster for Dalvin Cook, who could be a pretty big part of Baltimore's backfield as they look for more production in the postseason next to Gus Edwards and Justice Hill. The 30-year-old Gordon saw action in just four games for the Ravens during the 2023 regular season and had only 26 carries for 81 yards and a touchdown and added three catches for 46 yards. Cook, who didn't look good at all earlier in the season with the New York Jets, will most likely serve as the Ravens' No. 3 running back behind Edwards and Hill during the postseason. With quarterback Lamar Jackson also gaining big chunks of yards with his legs, Cook won't be very appealing at all in fantasy playoff lineups.
