Basic StatsJosh Palmer's Preseason Player Analysis

View WR Fantasy Rankings »
What You Need to Know:
  • Palmer caught 33 of 49 targets for 353 yards and 4 TDs in his 2021 rookie season.
  • He finished 4th among Chargers WRs in snaps and routes – behind Keenan Allen, Mike Williams and Jalen Guyton.
  • Palmer seemed to pass Guyton on the depth chart by the end of the season, though. He played more snaps and ran more routes than Guyton in 3 of their final 4 games together.
  • Palmer beat Guyton in Pro Football Focus receiving grade and yards per route run.
  • The Chargers didn’t make any significant additions at WR this offseason, leaving Palmer as the favorite for the #3 WR job.
  • Allen and Williams return as the clear top-2 WRs. RB Austin Ekeler is back after racking up 94 targets last year. TE Gerald Everett replaces TE Jared Cook, which should be a lateral move in terms of targets.
  • Palmer and Guyton combined for 97 targets last season. Palmer will need to capture a big chunk of that work if he’s going to be a reliable fantasy starter this year.
  • Palmer should at least benefit from a fast-paced, pass-heavy offense. The 2021 Chargers ranked 6th in both situation-neutral pace and situation-neutral pass rate. They finished 3rd in pass attempts. HC Brandon Staley and OC Joe Lombardi are back.
Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Palmer ascended to the #3 spot on Los Angeles’ depth chart by the end of his 2021 rookie season and is the favorite for that spot this season.

He’ll play in a fast-paced, pass-heavy Chargers offense. But competing with Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, Austin Ekeler and Gerald Everett, Palmer might struggle for enough targets to be a reliable fantasy play.

He’s more handcuff to Allen and Williams than standalone starter.

Mike Williams, WR LAC

4:35pm EST 12/27/21

Chargers HC confirms Mike Williams is out for Week 17 (COVID)

Chargers HC Brandon Staley confirmed Monday that WR Mike Williams will miss the Week 17 game against the Broncos. That's because Williams tested positive for COVID late last week and is unvaccinated. So he's forced to stay away from the team for at least 10 days. Jalen Guyton has yet to return from the COVID list but could see an elevated role if he makes it back in time. Josh Palmer also gains prominence with Williams out.

Chargers WR Mike Williams will miss at least 10 days after testing positive for COVID Saturday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That means Williams will miss Week 17, on top of Sunday's game against Houston.

The Chargers have placed WR Mike Williams on the COVID list. It's his 2nd stint this year, but the 1st came as a close contact. He's out for Sunday's game against the Texans. With Jalen Guyton already on the COVID list, Josh Palmer should be the #2 WR alongside Keenan Allen. He carries intrigue from at least WR4 territory. We wouldn't be shocked to see him rank among the top 25 WRs by the end of the week.

Chargers WR Jalen Guyton has been placed on the COVID list. His absence on Sunday vs. the Texans would leave Josh Palmer as Los Angeles' #3 WR -- but still short of bankable fantasy value.

Chargers HC Brandon Staley expects to get WR Keenan Allen back from the COVID list for Thursday night's game vs. the Chiefs, "barring a setback." We'll keep an eye on the situation. WRs Josh Palmer and Jalen Guyton played well in Allen's absence in the win over the Giants, but Allen's return would obviously be good news for QB Justin Herbert.
