Fantasy Tip: Gordon has looked sharp in the preseason. After a disappointing rookie year, he looks like a RB3 candidate. He could provide great value in the middle rounds.

Fantasy Tip: Tough break for the Chargers' No. 3 back, who has filled admirably well at times during his first two years in San Diego. His injury likely locks in Dreamius Smith into a roster spot as the third back behind Melvin Gordon and Danny Woodhead, while fellow first-year player Kenneth Farrow's chances at making the final 53 increase substantially as well.

It is believed that San Diego Chargers RB Branden Oliver (Achilles') tore his Achilles' tendon based on initial tests, according to a source. He will undergo more tests before the diagnosis is official.
Fantasy Tip: Oliver had an important role despite being San Diego's No. 3 running back. Assuming he did suffer a torn Achilles', Danny Woodhead and Melvin Gordon would likely be more involved. No one else in the backfield has much fantasy relevance. Gordon and Woodhead are both RB2 considerations in standard leagues and PPR leagues, respectively.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to find out the severity of the injury. Melvin Gordon and Danny Woodhead would receive more playing time if Oliver is out for an extended period of time. Gordon should receive most of the carries this season and can be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues. Woodhead will likely be more involved in the passing game and will be a No. 2 or No. 3 back in point-per-reception leagues.

The San Diego Chargers will begin to reduce the monetary package offered to DE Joey Bosa, as the stalemate with the No. 3 overall pick continues. Bosa has offered to defer a significant portion of the signing bonus to March 2017 in order to get the deal done. The team's position is that it's still not enough of a deferral.

San Diego Chargers DE Joey Bosa received an offer from the Chargers, but they have pulled the offer because Bosa's representatives declined the offer, according to a source. The offer to Bosa was the highest cash payout in the initial calendar year for a first-round pick in team history. The Chargers said they are not sure Bosa will be able to contribute over a full season because of the time he has missed during training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin missed some time during training camp because of an injury but should be more involved in the offense moving forward. He likely will be one of the starting receivers this season and can be a No. 4 wide receiver in most fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is competing with Dontrelle Inman for the No. 3 receiver job and may be the frontrunner at this point. He would receive some targets if he wins the job but would be behind several players in terms of being a top target. Johnson probably can be avoided during fantasy drafts but could be a waiver wire option during the season.
