2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
A year ago, Jalen Guyton (31-448-3) was the de facto No.3 receiver. While he's still in the mix for the job, Palmer (33-353-4) has more upside. A third-round pick last year, Palmer got more involved as the season wore on, scoring in three of the team's final five games while posting his three highest yardage totals in those same games. With a year under his belt to improve his route running, Palmer has a shot to develop into a more consistent downfield weapon. His fantasy profile is nominal as long as Williams and Allen are healthy, but if anything happens to them Palmer could be a priority addition.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Keenan Allen ruled out for Week 2
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Sep 14, 2:50 pm

WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) and TE Donald Parham (hamstring) are OUT for Thursday night vs. Chiefs. CB J.C. Jackson (ankle) is QUESTIONABLE. (Daniel Popper on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Allen injured his hamstring Week 1 and wasn't likely to play this week against the Chiefs given the short turnaround in Week 2. Mike Williams, Josh Palmer and DeAndre Carter will be the top three wideouts for Justin Herbert in a potential shootout. The Chiefs will be without rookie cornerback Trent McDuffie (hamstring).


Injury Keenan Allen dealing with hamstring pull
Chargers play on short week against KC
By: Doug Orth | Mon Sep 12, 5:25 pm

Keenan Allen will have an MRI on his hamstring after being ruled out yesterday, source said. Given the quick turnaround, missing Thursday vs. the #Chiefs makes sense, but tests today will determine the full extent of the injury. (NFL Network - Ian Rapoport)

FFToday's Take: There is almost no chance that Allen will play on Thursday night. If that turns out to be the case, Josh Palmer figures to benefit the most from a fantasy perspective as he will likely start opposite Mike Williams. Managers in deeper leagues could take a flyer on DeAndre Carter, who tied Palmer for the most slot snaps in the opener. Gerald Everett could also factor into the offense a bit more as well.


Josh Palmer making waves
Second-year WR pushing for bigger role
By: Doug Orth | Tue Aug 23, 9:20 pm

Chargers are ecstatic with second-year WR Josh Palmer’s progress - so much so that we should expect an expanded role with more targets. Per a team source: “He’s got the complete route-tree and he’s hyper-competitive attacking balls. Major worker: One of the best players in camp.” (Jordan Schultz)

FFToday's Take: It was thought that Palmer was drafted last year to eventually replace Mike Williams, but he signed a big three-year deal this offseason. That apparently was not enough to stop the Tennessee product, who is a strong candidate for at least 70-80 targets despite playing alongside Keenan Allen and Williams after settling for 49 looks as a rookie. Palmer should be drafted as a WR5 with WR2/3 upside should Allen or Williams miss time.
