News: The Chargers promoted running back Edwin Baker from the practice squad to the active roster Wednesday.
Analysis: Baker takes the roster spot of running back Ryan Mathews, who is done for the season with a broken collarbone. However, Baker is low man on the totem pole, so there is no need to add him in Fantasy.
News: The Chargers used a seventh-round pick in the NFL draft to take running back Edwin Baker, who left Michigan State after his junior season. Baker ran for 665 yards and five touchdowns last season, sharing carries with Le'Veon Bell. The 5-foot-9, 210-pound Baker had 1,201 yards rushing and 13 TDs as a sophomore, earning All-Big Ten honors.
Analysis: While he moves well for his size, there are durability concerns with Baker, and with 15 career catches there are questions about his hands. He's worth a late pick in rookie-only drafts.
