  • Chargers' Joshua Palmer: Struggles in playoff defeat

    Palmer recorded two receptions on six targets for 31 yards in Saturday's 31-30 wild-card round loss to the Jaguars. Palmer entered the game as the Chargers' second receiver with Mike Williams (back) sidelined, and his opportunity only further increased when DeAndre Carter suffered an ankle injury in the second quarter. In contrast to the regular season, Palmer struggled with the extra looks, as he failed to get on the same page with Justin Herbert. Despite the poor ending to his season, Palmer took a significant step forward in his second campaign as a pro. However, with Keenan Allen and Williams back in the mix in 2023, Palmer is likely to remain the Chargers' third wide receiver.

  • Chargers' Joshua Palmer: Will be No. 2 WR sans Williams

    Palmer could be in store for a prominent role in Saturday's playoff game against the Jaguars, as fellow wide receiver Mike Williams (back) has been ruled out. Palmer's expected to operate as the No. 2 wide receiver behind Keenan Allen in Williams' absence. With star quarterback Justin Herbert throwing him the ball, Palmer produced 769 yards and three touchdowns in the regular season, including a Week 11 outburst of 106 yards and two touchdowns against the Chiefs in a game Williams left early after aggravating an ankle injury.

  • Chargers' Joshua Palmer: Four catches in Week 18

    Palmer secured four of six targets for 39 yards in the Chargers' 31-28 loss to the Broncos on Sunday. Palmer's modest performance was underwhelming within a Week 18 context, but it doesn't sully what was a career-best regular season that saw the second-year wideout post a 72-769-3 line across 16 games. Additionally, Palmer could be primed for a substantial role in Saturday's wild-card road matchup versus the Jaguars, considering Mike Williams exited Sunday's game with a back injury and could therefore be sidelined or limited against Jacksonville.

  • Chargers' Joshua Palmer: Absent from box score

    Palmer did not catch his only target in the 31-10 win over the Rams on Sunday. While Palmer did play a healthy amount of snaps (36), the nature of Sunday's blowout meant the third wideout took a relative back seat with most of the Chargers' regulars sitting by the fourth quarter. The second-year wideout has seen his production dip dramatically with the return of Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, to the point he's not at all a lock for fantasy lineups next week despite the Chargers having plenty to play for in terms of playoff seeding.

  • Chargers' Joshua Palmer: Next to nothing in win

    Palmer caught two of his three targets for 16 yards in the 20-3 win Monday over the Colts. The Colts struggled to muster any sort of offense, which allowed a lethargic Chargers offense to putter through a game that was hardly in any doubt. Monday marked the third straight game in which Palmer drew seven or less targets after recording 58 from Weeks 6-13. The return of Keenan Allen and Mike Williams from their respective injuries has essentially relegated Palmer to fourth in the target chain, with running back Austin Ekeler also a featured member of the passing attack.

  • Chargers' Joshua Palmer: Five catches Sunday

    Palmer caught all five of his targets for 49 yards in Sunday's 17-14 win over the Titans. The second-year wideout has seen his volume shrink the last two weeks with both Keenan Allen and Mike Williams healthy, but Palmer has stayed fairly productive with a 9-102 line on 11 targets. He could post big numbers in Week 16 even on limited looks from Justin Herbert against a reeling Colts defense that just got lit up by Justin Jefferson and K.J. Osborn.

  • Chargers' Joshua Palmer: Low mark in targets

    Palmer caught four of his six targets for 53 yards in Sunday's 23-17 win over the Dolphins. Despite the fact Justin Herbert attempted 51 passes, the second-year wideout saw his lowest target total since Week 5. The return of Mike Williams alongside a healthy Keenan Allen may finally bump Palmer out of must-start fantasy territory, but he still appears to have a solid floor in PPR formats given the Chargers' reliance on the passing attack.

  • Chargers' Joshua Palmer: Bevy of targets once more

    Palmer caught seven of his 11 targets for 60 yards in the 27-20 loss to the Raiders on Sunday. Palmer now has 46 targets over the past five weeks, with 28 coinciding with the return of Keenan Allen (hamstring). The second-year receiver has quietly continued to build on what was a promising end to his rookie season and could be on pace to scratch 800 receiving yards despite entering the season as the clear fourth priority in the passing game. Even with Mike Williams' (ankle) return on the horizon, Palmer should still be a factor most weeks moving forward.

  • Chargers' Josh Palmer: WRs to Start

    We'll continue to monitor the status of Mike Williams (ankle), but I like Palmer as a No. 3 Fantasy receiver even if Williams is active. If Williams is out then consider Palmer a top-20 receiver in the majority of leagues. While he only had five catches for 56 yards at Arizona in Week 12, he did that on seven targets. We need Justin Herbert to get Palmer eight targets or more. He has six games this season with at least eight targets, and he's scored at least 13 PPR points in five of them. This should be a high-scoring affair for the Chargers and Raiders, and five receivers have scored at least 13 PPR points against Las Vegas in the past four games. Look for Palmer and Keenan Allen to have big stat lines, and DeAndre Carter can even be used as a sleeper if Williams is out again.

  • Chargers' Joshua Palmer: Five catches in win

    Palmer recorded five receptions on seven targets for 56 yards in Sunday's 25-24 win over the Cardinals. Palmer was expected to serve as the Chargers' second receiver behind Keenan Allen, though he was ultimately overshadowed by DeAndre Carter. Even so, Palmer managed a pair of 18-yard receptions to turn in a decent performance. So long as Mike Williams (ankle) remains out, Palmer should keep a significant role in the offense. Entering Sunday, he had topped 100 receiving yards in two of his last three games -- the latter of which came with Allen on the field -- so Palmer has proven capable of providing spike performances when provided with the opportunity.

  • Chargers' Josh Palmer: Start Him (Lineup Decisions)

    Palmer's time in the Fantasy spotlight appeared to be coming to a close last week with Keenan Allen and Mike Williams back in the lineup, but the latter quickly reinjured his high ankle sprain and may be a longshot to play this week. That opens the door for another high-volume day for Palmer against a defense that is giving up a lot of points and yardage to recent opponents. Dave is starting Palmer over Courtland Sutton and Michael Pittman in PPR leagues.

  • Chargers' Joshua Palmer: Likely to handle No. 2 role Sunday

    Palmer is expected to remain the Chargers' No. 2 receiver in Sunday's game against the Cardinals with Mike Williams (ankle) listed as out for the contest. Even though Keenan Allen returned from a two-game absence due to a hamstring injury in last week's loss to the Chiefs, he was limited to playing 68 percent of the snaps on offense. Meanwhile, Williams aggravated his high-ankle sprain and departed in the first quarter, allowing Palmer to finish as the Chargers' top receiver on the night in terms of both playing time (92 percent snap share) and production (eight catches for 106 yards and two touchdowns on 10 targets). Expect Allen's usage to increase now that he's further removed from the injury, but Williams' absence once again frees Palmer up to handle reps against an opposing defense's No. 2 cornerback. Any uptick in targets that Allen receives Week 12 may come at the expense of running back Austin Ekeler rather than Palmer, as Allen typically works out of the slot and typically run routes in the same short and intermediate areas as Ekeler.

  • Chargers' Josh Palmer: Sleepers

    Mike Williams (ankle) might be able to play in Week 12 at Arizona, but hopefully Palmer continues to have a prominent role even with Williams and Keenan Allen on the field. Palmer was amazing in Week 11 against Kansas City in the game where Williams re-injured his ankle, finishing with eight catches for 106 yards and two touchdowns on 10 targets. Palmer has scored at least 13 PPR points in five of six games this season when he has at least eight targets, so hopefully Justin Herbert continues to lean on Palmer whether Williams plays or not.

  • Chargers' Josh Palmer: Contrarian DFS Play

    Assuming Mike Williams is out, Palmer has a dream matchup against a bad defense in a high-scoring game. The Cardinals have been very good at taking No. 1 receivers away this year, which should mean they'll attempt to take away Keenan Allen, opening up Palmer for another huge day.

  • Chargers' Joshua Palmer: Big outing in loss

    Palmer snared eight of his 10 targets for 106 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 30-27 loss to the Chiefs. The return of Keenan Allen and Mike Williams did nothing to impact Palmer's burgeoning fantasy value as the second-year receiver corralled a 50-yard first-quarter touchdown and also tallied the go-ahead score late in the fourth before the Chiefs rallied to win the game. The status of Williams, who left in the second quarter with an ankle injury, will obviously be something to monitor, but at this point it appears Palmer will continue to be a mainstay in a Chargers offense that has been desperate for playmakers.

  • Chargers' Joshua Palmer: Ineffective in loss

    Palmer caught three of his eight targets for 44 yards in the 22-16 loss Sunday to the 49ers. Palmer got another opportunity as the Chargers' No. 1 wideout with Keenan Allen (hamstring) and Mike Williams (ankle) sidelined, but he wasn't able to make the most of the opportunity, seeing a three-week low of eight targets thanks in large part to a fearsome pass rush from the opposition. It's unclear when Allen and Williams will eventually make their returns, but expect Palmer to be a fantasy option for however long they're out.

  • Chargers' Josh Palmer: WRs to Start

    Keenan Allen (hamstring) and Mike Williams (ankle) are likely out again in Week 10, which means Palmer should continue to see a hefty amount of targets. The Chargers didn't have Allen and Williams in Week 9 at Atlanta, and Palmer had eight catches for 106 yards on 10 targets. He now has four games this season with at least eight targets, and he has scored at least 13 PPR points in all four outings. If Allen and Williams remain out again in Week 10 at San Francisco, Palmer's targets should remain high, which is exciting given his potential production.

  • Chargers' Joshua Palmer: Gets another chance as No. 1 wideout

    Palmer is expected to serve as the Chargers' No. 1 receiver in Sunday's game at San Francisco with both Keenan Allen (hamstring) and Mike Williams (ankle) listed as out for the contest. Following their Week 8 bye, the Chargers were without both Allen and Williams for the first time all season in last Sunday's 20-17 win over the Falcons. In their absences, Palmer stepped up to deliver his best performance of the season, reeling in eight of 10 targets for 106 yards. DeAndre Carter and Michael Bandy should continue to get expanded roles in three-receiver sets while Allen and Williams are out, but Palmer looks like the most reliable fantasy option among the Chargers' healthy receivers this week. The matchup with a formidable San Francisco defense isn't ideal on paper for Palmer, though the 49ers have done a better job at stifling the run game than the passing game this season.

  • Chargers' Joshua Palmer: Tops century mark as team's WR1

    Palmer caught eight of 10 targets for 106 yards in Sunday's 20-17 win over the Falcons. Operating as the No. 1 wide receiver with Keenan Allen (hamstring) and Mike Williams (ankle) sidelined, Palmer led the Chargers in targets and catches while finishing with exactly double the receiving yardage total of DeAndre Carter, whose 53 yards ranked second on the team. Palmer's most important catch was his last one, as his 22-yard reception in the final minute set up Cameron Dicker's game-winning 37-yard field goal. Los Angeles is unlikely to get both Allen and Williams back in Week 10 against the 49ers and could remain without both, so Palmer should continue to play a prominent role against a far tougher San Francisco secondary.

  • Chargers' Josh Palmer: Sleeper WRs

    Palmer was removed from the concussion protocol Wednesday, and Keenan Allen (hamstring) missed practice. Coach Brandon Staley said Allen's injury hasn't "responded the way that we hoped," and Allen could be out in Week 9 against the Falcons, who allow the most Fantasy points to opposing receivers. With Mike Williams (ankle) also out, Palmer could be the No. 1 target for Justin Herbert in this dream matchup. Palmer has three games this season with at least eight targets, and he scored at least 13 PPR points in each outing. DeAndre Carter is also in play as a sleeper in deeper leagues.
