Ranking all 32 NFL teams by their under-25 talent - Scott Spratt
Really, the Chargers might be fine without any running backs. Wideout Mike Williams enjoyed a sneaky breakout in his second season, producing 262 DYAR -- 13th most at the position -- on just 66 targets. Tight end Hunter Henry was third among tight ends with 165 DYAR in his sophomore season before a torn ACL erased his 2018 season, and he'll be back to full health in 2019.

Melvin Gordon insurance: Justin Jackson adds 'razzle-dazzle' to Bolts - Eric D. Williams
"He's a creative runner," backfield mate Austin Ekeler said. "He's a unique runner. There aren't many people I've seen, in general, that run like he does. Like I tell him, he's got that razzle-dazzle, some hocus-pocus [laughs] -- I make up all these different things. That's how he runs, and that's how I'd describe his runs because you really don't know what he's going to do."

Why you can't compare the Ezekiel Elliott and Melvin Gordon holdouts to Le'Veon Bell's - Dan Graziano
And same with Gordon, though the central issues seem to tilt his situation in favor of the team, as it has some depth at running back and he hasn't made the same kind of money Elliott has made so far. It's possible, if the Chargers don't think he is going to budge from his demands, they find a trade partner and move on, though that's tricky since the acquiring team would have to give the Chargers something of value and also sign Gordon to the deal he wants.

Stock up, Stock down following Los Angeles Chargers’ loss to Cardinals - Gavino Borquez (slide show)
Lamp came into the game as the backup right guard to Michael Schofield, but his playing time suggests otherwise. The former Western Kentucky started at left guard and played every single snap. He also played on the right side, too.

Chargers winners and losers following one preseason game - Alexander Insdorf
Stick wasn’t as efficient as Taylor, which is expected as a newcomer to the league, but he sure did show flashes. Rebounding from his interception in the third quarter, Stick came out in the fourth with a great scoring drive down the field, finished by a 31-yard scramble to the end zone. He’s nowhere near NFL ready yet, as exemplified by his early struggles in the game, but his drive at the beginning of the fourth quarter as well as some other moments during the game show that he does have great potential as a project.
