Chargers' Jalen Guyton: Catches one pass
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guyton caught one of his three targets for 49 yards in Monday's 30-27 overtime loss to the Saints.

Mike Williams (hamstring) returned from his one-week absence and had an excellent performance, scoring two touchdowns and catching five of his eight targets in comparison to Guyton's single catch. Guyton had the opportunity to shine after Keenan Allen (back) left the game in the first quarter due to a back injury, but the receiver had one stellar catch and that was about it. It's unclear what Allen's status will be moving forward, but he'll have time to heal over the Week 6 bye, likely leaving Guyton in the deep-threat decoy role he's held all season.

Chargers' Jalen Guyton: Makes one reception count
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guyton secured his only target for a 72-yard touchdown in the Chargers' 38-31 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Drawing a spot start in the No. 2 wideout role in place of Mike Williams (hamstring), Guyton was nearly a complete non-factor on the afternoon before breaking free on a post pattern on the final play of the third quarter to erase a 28-24 deficit for the Chargers. The big scoring play gave those who streamed Guyton in season-long formats or utilized him as a DFS punt play something for their trouble, and it remains to be seen if the North Texas product will have another starting opportunity in Williams' stead in a Week 5 road matchup against the Saints.

Chargers' Jalen Guyton: Catches two passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guyton caught two of his three targets for 23 yards in the 21-16 loss Sunday to the Panthers.

Guyton didn't see much of a jump in targets even after Mike Williams left Sunday's game with a hamstring injury. That's to be expected considering Guyton is essentially meant to be a speedy distraction for opposing defenses. It's unclear what Williams' status will be for next Sunday, but expect the offense to funnel even more of its production through Austin Ekeler, Keenan Allen and Hunter Henry in the event he was unable to play.

Chargers' Jalen Guyton: First NFL touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guyton caught one of his two targets for a 14-yard touchdown in Sunday's 23-20 overtime loss to the Chiefs.

Guyton celebrated his first NFL touchdown, but that's all there was to celebrate. Two games in and Guyton has been quiet, only seeing three targets on 91 snaps. The No. 3 wideout's role didn't change much despite rookie quarterback Justin Herbert receiving a spot start in place of the injured Tyrod Taylor (chest), tallying just 14 yards and seeing one lone red-zone target. Contrast that to Keenan Allen (seven catches for 96 yards), Austin Ekeler (four for 55) and Hunter Henry (six for 88 yards), and it's clear Guyton's simply not in a profitable fantasy situation.

Chargers' Jalen Guyton: Snares only target
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guyton caught his lone target for 16 yards in Sunday's 16-13 win over the Bengals

There was some thought Guyton could emerge as an intriguing speed option if Mike Williams were ruled out Sunday after spraining his shoulder, but the big-bodied wideout managed to power through, relegating Guyton to the No. 3 role. Much like Travis Benjamin in past seasons, Guyton simply acted as an empty downfield threat through most of Sunday's game, only seeing one target and playing just under 65 percent of the team's offensive snaps. Don't expect much from the second-year wideout unless the Chargers suddenly decide to change his role.

Chargers' Jalen Guyton: Still seeing starting snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guyton continues to see first-team reps in practice, Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County Register reports.

The injury to Mike Williams (shoulder) essentially assures that Guyton will be a starter for the team's offense at least early on, but that doesn't necessarily mean the speedster will see that many opportunities. Travis Benjamin, who occupied the same projected role Guyton will be in to start 2020, caught just 18 passes over his last 17 games with the Chargers largely acting as a decoy deep threat. The Williams injury might allow for rookies like Joe Reed or K.J. Hill to pick up prominent snaps as the other outside wide receiver, but it's more likely a narrow Chargers passing tree just becomes smaller with an over-reliance on Keenan Allen, Austin Ekeler and Hunter Henry until the big-bodied Williams returns.

Chargers' Jalen Guyton: Seeing first-team reps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guyton saw most of the first-team wide receiver reps alongside Mike Williams on Friday, Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County Register reports.

It's worth noting the Chargers have a desperate need for a No. 3 WR with Mike Williams solidified as an outside threat and Keenan Allen locked in for almost all of the slot work. Whoever ultimately ends up winning that job would be expected to play opposite Williams on the outside, which is why Guyton's speed, which was clocked an unofficial 4.35 at North Texas' pro day, makes for an intriguing option and likely effective decoy. Manzano did note Guyton's struggles as a starter, highlighting the play of seventh-round rookie K.J. Hill as the biggest standout during the opening week of Chargers training camp. However, neither Hill nor 2020 fifth-round pick Joe Reed possess the type of speed that Guyton has, so it'll be interesting to see whether the Chargers value the latter's specific skill set over the prospect of a more well-rounded player.

Chargers' Jalen Guyton: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guyton (coach's decision) is officially inactive for Sunday's matchup with Kansas City.

Guyton had played three of the last four games, playing 19 offensive snaps and failing to haul in either of his two targets in that span. With Guyton healthy scratched Sunday, Jason Moore and Andre Patton will draw the depth receiver snaps.

Chargers' Jalen Guyton: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guyton was promoted to the Charger's active roster Saturday.

Guyton will take the place of Geremy Davis (hamstring), who was placed on injured reserve. The former will serve as a depth receiver and could play a few snaps on offense Sunday in Denver.

Cowboys' Jalen Guyton: Big TD grab against Tampa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guyton caught two of four targets for 80 yards, including a 69-yard touchdown, in Thursday's preseason loss to the Buccaneers.

Most of the yardage on the fourth-quarter TD came after the catch, as Guyton beat a double team, raced down the sideline and eluded two other would-be tacklers to reach the end zone. The undrafted rookie free agent out of North Texas hasn't had many big moments in camp or in the preseason, but he could still wind up on the practice squad for the Cowboys.

Jalen Guyton: To sign with Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guyton, an undrafted free agent from North Texas, is expected to sign a contract with the Cowboys, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

Guyton had hopes of being a mid-round draft pick before falling out of the draft entirely. Dallas has plenty of receiving talent but Guyton could carve out a role as a depth receiver and special teams contributor.
