Chargers: Status of the team’s wide receiver corps

Over the course of the offseason, I want to take a look at the Chargers position groups and determine a grade for that group heading into the 2019 season. Today, we’ll start with wide receivers.

The two main guys on this receiving corps are Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, especially following the departure of Tyrell Williams to the Oakland Raiders in free agency. Keenan Allen is still in his prime; his 2018 numbers were nearly identical to his 2017 numbers, and it was a career year again for him. Luckily, despite a career filled with some nasty injuries such as the ACL tear in 2016 or the kidney laceration in 2015, Allen’s been able to stay healthy recently, only having a minor hip pointer come up this year in the Chargers’ comeback win over Kansas City.
