With offensive weapons dropping like flies in San Diego this season, Inman improved upon last season's surprise emergence in every statistical category. He saved some of his best efforts for late in the season, catching at least four passes in seven of his final nine outings. There are plenty of questions surrounding the
Inman caught three passes for 44 yards in Saturday's loss to the Browns.
Despite being targeted 10 times, Inman was unable to haul in more than three passes for just the second time since Week 8. Still, in what has quietly been an outstanding campaign for the third-year player, Inman has developed into one of Philip Rivers' most consistent targets, racking up 40 receptions, 580 receiving yards and three touchdowns since Week 7.
Inman led the team in receptions and yardage in this one while finishing one target behind Tyrell Williams for the top spot in that category.

Inman could continue this recent trend in production next week against the hapless Browns.
