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

8:50pm EDT 9/26/22

Williams catches a TD but nothing else

Chargers WR Mike Williams caught a 15-yard TD in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's loss to the Jaguars. And that marked his only reception among 6 targets. With WR Keenan Allen out (hamstring), Williams tied for just 3rd in looks behind WR Joshua Palmer (9) and RB Austin Ekeler (8). TE Gerald Everett joined him at 6. QB Justin Herbert -- playing through a rib injury -- completed just 55.6% of his passes. Palmer caught 6 balls and led the team with 99 receiving yards. Everett managed just 2 receptions for 25 yards.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Jaguars. Like QB Justin Herbert, Allen went from limited practices on Wednesday and Thursday to no practice on Friday. HC Brandon Staley on Friday afternoon labeled Allen "50/50" to play against Jacksonville. We'll look for further updates on his status, but this game doesn't kick off until 4:05 pm ET on Sunday.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) is out for Thursday night's game vs. the Chiefs. His injury isn't believed to be serious, but he was always unlikely to play on the short week. We'll see if he can make it back for Week 3. Allen's absence will push Josh Palmer onto the field in 2-WR sets and puts him on the WR3/Flex radar.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Chargers WR Keenan Allen's hamstring injury is not expected to be a "long-term" deal. But Pelissero confirms that Allen is "unlikely" to be ready for Thursday night's showdown with the Chiefs. That's obviously a big loss for the Chargers but frees up targets for Austin Ekeler, Mike Williams, Josh Palmer and Gerald Everett. See where all those guys sit in the Week 2 Rankings.

Chargers WR Josh Palmer has cleared the league’s concussion protocol. He took part in individual drills on Wednesday. Palmer, 23 next month, remains a WR5 to target in fantasy drafts.
