Chase Daniel4328.7283.81.461.

Justin Herbert: Along with Tom Brady, Herbert was one of two quarterbacks to throw for more than 5,000 yards in 2021. Aided by volume (minimum of 30 pass attempts every game), Herbert eclipsed the 300-yard passing mark and/or threw multiple touchdowns in 15 of 17 games. No other quarterback had more than 14 such games. In addition, Herbert (12) led all signal-callers in top-12 (i.e., QB1-level) performances last season. The Chargers led the NFL in fourth-down conversions (22), which helped the Chargers finish top five in both plays per game (66.4, fifth) and pass attempts per game (39.6, third) last season.

Larry Rountree III8.

Austin Ekeler: While he set career highs in 2021 as a rusher (206 carries for 911 yards and 12 touchdowns), it's Ekeler's elite receiving ability that makes him a potential top-three overall pick in fantasy drafts. Over the past three seasons, Ekeler has averaged 5.1/48.6/0.4 receiving per game.

Isaiah Spiller: Spiller's initial role will be as the early-down complement to Ekeler, but his versatile skill set gives him upside, especially if an injury leads to a larger workload than expected.


Keenan Allen105.91178.66.5000209.81
Mike Williams72.11035.27.5000184.57
Josh Palmer51.2575.94.1000107.79
Jalen Guyton29.4391.22.84.620.70.0973.23
DeAndre Carter6.1680.500012.85

Keenan Allen: Allen's volume has allowed fantasy managers to take his consistency to the bank. The veteran receiver has a minimum of 97 receptions and 992 yards in five consecutive seasons, although he has scored more than six touchdowns only once during that stretch. During those five seasons, he's finished as fantasy's WR14 (or better) in half-PPR scoring every season.

Mike Williams: Williams shattered his previous career highs last season in targets (129), receptions (76) and yards (1,146) and his nine touchdowns were one shy of his previous career high. Even if we exclude his dominant start (31/471/6 on 51 targets, WR1 through Week 5), he performed as fantasy's WR28 from Weeks 6-18. Given his current ADP as a high-end WR3, Williams offers plenty of upside.

Josh Palmer: Will Palmer make a big second-year jump? The Athletic's Daniel Popper thinks so. Popper notes Palmer's "outstanding work ethic," as he's "regularly the last player on the practice field" and "throws with Herbert after practice more than any other receiver on the roster." In addition, Justin Herbert said, "it's a different Josh Palmer out there and he knows exactly what he's doing."


Gerald Everett46.9510.34.3000100.28
Donald Parham18.5194.41.600038.29
Tre' McKitty12121.5100024.15

Gerald Everett: Everett has yet to finish with 50 receptions, 500 yards or five touchdowns in any season so far. Moving to one of the league's most prolific offenses, however, generates some breakout appeal in 2022.
