Basic Stats Full Player Fantasy Analysis

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Bosa struggled to a DL28 fantasy finish last season (depending on your scoring format), while dealing with shin and triceps injuries and a multi-game concussion. Bosa ranked top 5 at the position in each of his past 2 healthy seasons, however.

This year brings a new HC in Brandon Staley, who coordinated last year's Rams defense. That means an altered role for Bosa, who will technically play OLB in the Chargers' new scheme. As long as that doesn't change his position on your league-hosting site, however, there's no reason to worry.

When the Rams hired Wade Phillips as DC and shifted from a 4-3 front to a 3-4, some worried about the hit Aaron Donald's value might take. He simply went from being a dominant DT to 1 of the top DEs.

Staley's a smart coach. If he weren't, he probably wouldn't be climbing the coaching ranks so quickly. (He's 38.) We might see Bosa drop and cover the flat a few more times than he used to, but don't expect L.A.'s new staff to pull him away from what he does best: Get the QB.

Chargers EDGE Joey Bosa left Sunday's game against the Bengals with a concussion. It's a particularly worrisome situation for Bosa, who suffered a pair of concussions last November and December. We'll see how he fares this week, but you should probably expect him to miss at least the Week 14 game.

Chargers HC Brandon Staley said Wednesday that EDGE Joey Bosa is on the COVID list merely as a close contact and that he has so far tested negative. If that continues this week, he'll be ready to play Sunday night against the Steelers. We've added him to the Week 11 IDP rankings.

Chargers EDGE Joey Bosa and DL Jerry Tillery landed on the COVID list Tuesday. We'll see whether either player has a shot to make it back ahead of Sunday night's game against the Steelers.

Chargers EDGE Joey Bosa didn't practice all week because of foot and ankle injuries, but NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that he's still considered a game-time decision Sunday against the Chiefs. "He's sore, but he's improved every day and does have a more than realistic chance to get on the field," Rapoport adds. We'd still try not to use Bosa in IDP lineups. The matchup would be negative for even a fully healthy Bosa.
