Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Starting in place of TE Hunter Henry (COVID list) in Weeks 16 and 17 last year, Parham posted 2-47 and 3-37-1 lines.
  • He ranked 13th among 41 qualifying TEs in Pro Football Focus’ receiving grades over those 2 weeks.
  • Parham totaled just 5 catches prior to those final 2 games.
  • 2020 marked his NFL debut. The Stetson University product went undrafted in 2019 and played for the XFL’s Dallas Renegades in the spring of 2020. He signed a 2-year, $1.39 million contract with the Chargers that April.
  • Parham is a massive 6’8, 240-pounder and ran a 4.68-second 40 time with a 38.5-inch vertical at his Pro Day.
  • The Chargers lost Henry in free agency but signed TE Jared Cook to a fully guaranteed 1-year, $4.5 million deal.
  • Cook spent the past 2 seasons in New Orleans alongside new Chargers OC Joe Lombardi, recording 43-705-9 and 37-504-7 lines.
  • Among 34 TEs with 40+ targets last year, Cook ranked 11th in yards per route run and 14th in PFF receiving grade.
  • Cook is the heavy favorite to open the season as the Chargers’ lead TE, but it’s worth noting that he turned 34 in April and missed 3 games over the past 2 seasons with a concussion and groin injury.
  • The Chargers also added TE Tre’ McKitty in the 3rd round of this year’s draft, although it sounds like they view him as a block-first TE initially.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Parham brings an intriguing combination of size and athleticism. And he flashed a bit in 2 spot starts at the end of last season.

The Chargers clearly aren’t ready to hand him a starting job, though, signing TE Jared Cook and drafting TE Tre’ McKitty this offseason after losing TE Hunter Henry.

Cook is the odds-on favorite to open the season as the lead TE, leaving Parham as just a waiver-wire watch list guy in standard fantasy leagues. You can consider him in the very late rounds of TE-premium drafts.
