  • Chargers' Josh Palmer: Snares two catches

    Palmer caught both of his targets for 25 yards in Sunday's 28-13 loss to the Broncos.

    The rookie saw his second-most snaps this season, but the extra workload once again didn't translate to much. Favorable passing game scripts could force Palmer onto the field more as the season progresses, but he's far behind the more efficient targets heavily utilized by the Chargers.

  • Chargers' Josh Palmer: Only one catch

    Palmer caught his only target for 17 yards in the 41-37 win over the Steelers on Sunday.

    After going two straight games with at least two catches, Palmer was limited to only one reception Sunday night. The 22-year-old's snap share was down from last week as he was only on the field for 30 percent of snaps, a bit less than Jalen Guyton. With the high volume of passes that go to Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, Palmer's fantasy value is significantly minimized.

  • Chargers' Josh Palmer: Season high in receptions

    Palmer caught three of four targets for 22 yards during Sunday's 27-20 loss against the Vikings.

    Palmer caught a season-high three passes against the Vikings on Sunday. All three of Palmer's catches came on the Chargers' last possession of the game and set up a 24-yard Dustin Hopkins field goal. Palmer has only seen 17 targets on the year, but this game marks an uptick in usage for the 2021 third-round pick. Moving forward, Palmer should continue to function as Justin Herbert's fifth or sixth option in the passing game, and his upside is capped by the talent ahead of him in the receiving core.

  • Chargers' Josh Palmer: Two catches in road win

    Palmer caught both of his targets for 22 yards in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Eagles.

    Palmer continues to have a small role in the Chargers' explosive offense, extending his streak of at least one catch to four games. The rookie wideout saw an uptick in playing time as he was on the field for 30 percent of the offensive snaps, a major increase from Week 8 where he was only on the field for 13 percent. Going forward, look for the 22-year-old to split the No. 3 wide receiver role with Jalen Guyton.

  • Chargers' Josh Palmer: First career touchdown

    Palmer caught his lone target for 24 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Patriots.

    Palmer's score game on a junk-time drive, but it was an impressive catch nevertheless as the 2021 third-round pick plucked the ball away from two defenders on an underthrown pass. The rookie has rarely been used this season, ceding the majority of the playing time to Keenan Allen, Mike Williams and Jalen Guyton.

  • Chargers' Josh Palmer: Hardly relevant in win

    Palmer caught two of his three targets for 12 yards in Sunday's 47-42 win over the Browns.

    Palmer played 16 offensive snaps but was once again relegated to offensive afterthought. After seemingly emerging from training camp as the No. 3 pass catcher, Palmer has more or less been a depth piece behind Jalen Guyton, Keenan Allen and Mike Williams and likely won't rise above that spot unless injuries occur.

  • Chargers' Josh Palmer: Mundane figures again

    Palmer caught two targets for 21 yards in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Cowboys.

    Palmer at least saw his opportunities line up with No. 3 wideout Jalen Guyton (two catches, 13 yards), but it's fair to say the third-round rookie hasn't wowed over the first two weeks. Don't anticipate a change in his fantasy value unless an injury shakes up the top of the depth chart.

  • Chargers' Josh Palmer: Not No. 3 wideout just yet

    Palmer caught his lone target for 17 yards in Sunday's 20-16 win over Washington.

    Two weeks after reportedly beating out Tyron Johnson for the Chargers' No. 3 wideout role, Palmer saw just 14 offensive snaps compared to Jaylen Guyton's 53. The team could have simply been easing the rookie into his first professional game, but the difference in snaps is jarring given how strong the 2021 third-rounder's training camp supposedly was. Palmer's playing time likely will increase as the season progresses, but for the moment he's safely off the radar, even in deeper fantasy formats.

  • Chargers' Josh Palmer: Locked in No. 3 role

    Palmer secured the Chargers' No. 3 receiver role after the team waived Tyron Johnson on Tuesday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

    Given the big-play ability Johnson's displayed last season, the Chargers' decision to cut him is somewhat surprising. Jalen Guyton (leg) is still around as a downfield option -- a useful asset to have considering the team's top two wideouts, Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, are far from burners -- but it's clear the Chargers likes Palmer as an intermediate threat. The rookie's role in what should be an explosive offense will be something to monitor in the team's opener Sept. 12 against Washington.

  • Chargers' Josh Palmer: Three grabs in loss

    Palmer secured three of five targets for 26 yards in the Chargers' 27-0 preseason loss to the Seahawks on Saturday night.

    The rookie third-round pick enjoyed a productive showing by preseason standards, checking in third on the night in receptions, receiving yards and targets. Palmer also recorded a touchdown grab in preseason Week 2 against the 49ers, but the player he's battling for the No. 3 job, Tyron Johnson, notably notched a team-best 4-41 line Saturday night.

  • Chargers' Josh Palmer: Scores lone touchdown

    Palmer caught his lone target for a three-yard touchdown in Sunday's 15-10 preseason loss to the 49ers.

    Palmer is locked in a heated battle with Tyron Johnson for the No. 3 wide receiver role. While the former did net the Chargers' only touchdown Sunday, it came on a broken play in which quarterback Easton Stick escaped out of the pocket and drew three defenders in, only to flip it over the top to an uncovered Palmer. Conversely, Johnson caught four of his six targets, but most were short dump offs from the lackluster combo of Stick and Chase Daniel. Daniel Popper of The Athletic relayed in a report earlier this week Palmer was the clear-cut third wide receiver as of now, but the rookie also was spotted as a special teams gunner in Friday's practice, suggesting the team might not be fully convinced with that assessment. In either case, Palmer has made a positive impression throughout training camp and remains an intriguing name to monitor in deeper formats.
