QUARTERBACKS

Justin Herbert627.7414.3464533.912.5557256.53.85345.05

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.

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 this summer. 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 if an injury leads to a larger workload than expected.

WIDE RECEIVERS

Mike Williams75.91075.27.8000192.27

DeAndre Carter5.561.40.500011.89
Jason Moore3.336.80.30007.13

Keenan Allen: Fantasy managers can take Allen's consistency to the bank. Allen has a minimum of 97 receptions and 992 yards in five consecutive seasons, although he has scored more than six touchdowns in only one of those five seasons. During that span, he's finished no worse than WR14 in half-PPR scoring in any 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.

TIGHT ENDS

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, gives him some breakout appeal in 2022.
