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 Mike Williams suffers another ankle injury
Aggravation of earlier high-ankle sprain
By: Doug Orth | Tue Nov 22, 1:30 am

WR Mike Williams had a "re-aggravation" of his high ankle sprain last night, per Brandon Staley. Staley said team will "find out a lot more in the next couple days" but it is not considered "a significant re-injury." (The Athletic - Daniel Popper)

FFToday's Take: Williams lasted all of six snaps in Week 11 after sitting out three weeks (missing two games) with his Week 7 high-ankle sprain. He won't have the benefit of a bye week this time around, so there is a good chance Williams does not return until the fantasy playoffs if the Chargers learn their lesson and are more cautious with him this time. Josh Palmer had a huge game in his stead and should remain a viable WR3 option in most 12-team leagues.


Injury Mike Williams likely to miss multiple games
High-ankle sprain
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 24, 6:40 pm

Mike Williams has a sprained ankle and will miss "weeks not days," Brandon Staley said. (ESPN - Adam Schefter)

FFToday's Take: Williams' fantasy managers catch a bit of a break with the timing of this injury - the Chargers go on their bye in Week 8 - but it would be overly optimistic for anyone to believe he will be ready to perform at his usual level by Week 9. High-ankle sprains tend to affect players that don't give them time to fully heal for the rest of the season. Josh Palmer likely goes right back to WR3 consideration even with Keenan Allen (hamstring) healthy, while Gerald Everett will likely remain a low-end TE1 option.


Injury Keenan Allen expected to sit again Monday night
Hamstring injury; WR eyeing Week 7 return
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 17, 6:40 pm

Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) is inactive tonight vs. Broncos, per source. He's hoping to return next week. (ESPN - Jeremy Fowler)

FFToday's Take: This was expected, although Allen was limited in practice all week. It is somewhat interesting the Chargers are thinking about bringing him back in Week 7 with a bye coming up the following week. At any rate, he should automatically return to fantasy lineups. In regards to Monday night's game, expect the Chargers to rely heavily on Josh Palmer, Gerald Everett and Austin Ekeler with Denver expected to shadow Mike Williams with Patrick Surtain II.


Injury Keenan Allen Out for Week 4
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 30, 4:18 pm

WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) is OUT vs. Texans. Brandon Staley said plan is for Donald Parham to sit this weekend and return next week vs. Browns. Wants to make sure Parham is in proper football shape. Today was Parham’s first day back practicing fully. (Daniel Popper on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This will be the third game Allen has missed after suffering a hamstring injury in Week 1. Mike Williams, Josh Palmer and DeAndre Carter will be the top three wideouts for Justin Herbert (ribs) against the Texans. Allen left practice early Thursday and didn't practice Friday which isn't a great sign for his availability in Week 5.


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.
