Top Jalen Guyton News

  • Chargers' Jalen Guyton: Draws praise for special teams work

    Guyton earned rave reviews from Chargers head coach Brandon Staley for his performance on special teams during OTAs, Gavino Borquez of USA Today reports.

    As a capable returner and special teams gunner, Guyton looks as though he'll have a key role in 2022 on the Chargers' third unit. Guyton's outlook on the offensive end is more muddled, however, after Joshua Palmer was spotted working with the first-team offense during offseason workouts. Expect the two to have a spirited battle for the No. 3 wideout role throughout training camp.

  • Chargers' Jalen Guyton: Signs exclusive rights tender

    Guyton officially signed his exclusive rights free agent tender Tuesday and will remain with the Chargers this coming season, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    The 24-year-old finished the 2021 campaign third among Los Angeles' wide receivers in terms of yardage (448), while logging 31 receptions on 48 targets and three touchdowns in 16 games. Beyond competing for reps behind Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, Guyton could also contribute in the return game, as the Chargers haven't re-signed last season's primary returner Andre Roberts.

  • Chargers' Jalen Guyton: To receive contract tender

    The Chargers are slated to extend a contract tender to Guyton, Doug Kyed of Pro Football Focus reports.

    As a result, Guyton -- an exclusive rights free agent -- is poised to reclaim his role in the Chargers offense in 2022. The 24-year-old is coming off a 2021 campaign in which he logged 31 catches (on 48 targets) for 448 yards and three touchdowns in 16 games. This coming season Guyton will continue to work behind the team's top pass-catching options, Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, while competing with Joshua Palmer and possibly others for No. 3 wideout reps.

  • Chargers' Jalen Guyton: Excels in final game

    Guyton caught six of his nine targets for 52 yards in Sunday's 35-32 loss to the Raiders. The third-year wide receiver finished the season with 31 receptions for 448 yards and three touchdowns in 16 games.

    It took until the final game of the season, but Guyton recorded season highs in receptions and targets while tallying his third effort with at least 50 receiving yards over his last five contests. Part of that extra volume was due to the Chargers furiously attempting a double-digit fourth quarter comeback, but it underscores what had been an encouraging month of December for Guyton after what looked liked a subpar season for the 24-year-old. That being said, it's hard to have much optimism from a fantasy standpoint moving forward for Guyton, who under the Anthony Lynn system last season saw a high volume of snaps only for Joe Lombardi's scheme to effectively neutralize the speedster in 2021. The emergence of rookie third-round pick Joshua Palmer also factored into Guyton's downturn as the duo essentially split reps as the team's No. 3 pass catcher by the end of October. A restricted free agent this offseason, expect Guyton to be retained on a short-term deal as a depth piece capable of starting if pressed into action.

  • Chargers' Jalen Guyton: Catches two passes in win

    Guyton caught both of his targets for 10 yards in Sunday's 34-13 win over the Broncos.

    Guyton and teammate Joshua Palmer shared the Chargers' No. 3 receiver role Week 17 after Mike Williams (illness) activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list prior to the contest. Guyton played on 32 of the Chargers' 67 offensive naps, while Palmer played just one fewer snap.

  • Chargers' Jalen Guyton: Poised for No. 3 receiver role

    Guyton and Joshua Palmer are expected to share the Chargers' No. 3 receiver role Sunday against the Broncos after Mike Williams (illness) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list, Gavino Borquez of USA Today reports.

    While both Williams and Guyton were on the list last week, Palmer stepped in as the No. 2 wideout behind Keenan Allen and played a whopping 98 percent of the Chargers' offensive snaps and finished with a 5-43-1 receiving line on six targets in a 41-29 loss to the Texans. After Guyton was activated from the list Wednesday, both he and Palmer looked poised to have regular spots in three-receiver sets this weekend, but Williams' reinstatement Thursday will close the door on that possibility. Before testing positive for the virus and sitting out against the Texans, Guyton hovered between 35 and 60 percent snap shares in each of the Chargers' first eight games after a Week 7 bye while averaging just 2.4 targets per contest.

  • Chargers' Jalen Guyton: Activated from COVID-19 list

    The Chargers activated Guyton (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

    Guyton wasn't available during last week's loss to Houston, but he's been cleared with plenty of time to spare before Sunday's game against the Broncos. Mike Williams remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list, and while there's still a solid chance Williams returns this week as well, for now, Guyton tentatively slots in as the No. 2 wide receiver behind Keenan Allen.

  • Chargers' Jalen Guyton: On track to come off COVID list

    Guyton (illness) is in line to come off the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

    The move is slated to become official later Wednesday, setting the stage for Guyton to return to action in Week 17. Meanwhile, under the NFL's updated COVID protocols, fellow wideout Mike Williams (illness) has a chance to come off the reserve-COVID-19 list ahead of Sunday's game against the Broncos as well.

  • Chargers' Jalen Guyton: Not cleared for Week 16

    The Chargers didn't activate Guyton (illness) from the reserve-COVID-19 list ahead of Sunday's game against the Texans, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

    With fellow wideout Mike Williams also having been placed on the list, Joshua Palmer now has an opportunity to serve as the Chargers' No. 2 wideout behind Keenan Allen until Guyton and Williams clear the NFL's COVID protocols.
