Chargers' Desmond King: Return touchdown proves critical in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King registered 10 tackles (nine solo) and two passes defended in the 33-30 win over the Steelers. He also returned one punt return for a touchdown Sunday.

It's fair to say that without King's heroics, the Chargers would never have been able to complete the come-from-behind win as the second-year cornerback tied the game in the fourth quarter thanks to a 73-yard punt return touchdown. King has seen his playmaking opportunities on the defensive end fall to the wayside in 2018, but he's more than made up for it as a returner, and remains an intriguing IDP option in leagues that reward return yardage.

Chargers' Desmond King: Three tackles Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King record three tackles (all solo) in Sunday's 20-6 win over the Raiders.

King has posted 30 tackles on the season to go along with three interceptions. However, since he's not a high-tackle guy, he needs to force turnovers in order to be worthy of a play in IDP leagues.

Chargers' Desmond King: Pick-six seals win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King secured three tackles and returned an interception for a touchdown. He also tallied 39 return yards in Sunday's 25-17 win.

King's fourth-quarter interception ended up being the difference maker, as the Seahawks nearly drove down for a potential game-tying touchdown before getting thwarted at the one-yard line. The nickel cornerback has already surpassed his interception total from last season, but he remains an inconsistent option in IDP leagues by virtue of a limited workload.

Chargers' Desmond King: Registers season high in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King tallied seven tackles (one solo) and added one pass defense in Sunday's 20-19 win over the Titans.

King's seven tackles represented a season-high, but it's worth pointing out the second-year defensive back added an additional 61 yards in kick and put returns Sunday. While his 125 kick return yards place him 27th among eligible returners, King does have 167 punt return yards, third best in the NFL through seven weeks, and could pose some value for IDP owners in leagues that reward return yardage.

Chargers' Desmond King: Snags two interceptions in Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King recorded two tackles (both solo) and three passes defensed, including two interceptions, in Sunday's win over Cleveland.

King had a monster game Sunday. After recording just one interception in 16 games as a rookie, he secured his first two of the 2018 campaign. He hasn't been prolific in pass defense this season, but he showed what he's capable of against the Browns. He'll look to stack success as the Chargers take on the Titans in Week 7.
