King recorded 10 tackles (seven solo) and a sack in Sunday's 30-13 win over the Redskins.
Not only did King lead the team in tackles against the Redskins, but Sunday's 10 tackles was also a career high for the 22-year-old rookie. Given he's now recorded at least a sack or an interception in four of the last five games, the Iowa product has quietly solidified himself as a IDP option in deeper leagues. So long as the Chargers continue to operate with three safeties on the field in Gus Bradley's exotic 3-4 defensive scheme, King has the potential to rack up more numbers in the weeks to come.
King registered six tackles and a sack in the 19-10 win over the Browns on Sunday.
King has quietly turned in a solid rookie campaign, registering 46 tackles and three sacks to go along with an interception returned for a touchdown. The Iowa product has even taken over return duties on kickoffs and remains an intriguing "do-it-all" talent for the Chargers.
King tallied five tackles and returned an interception 90 yards for a touchdown during Thursday's 28-6 win over the Cowboys.
King put together his best game of his career, recording both his first interception and touchdown in a Thanksgiving Day rout of the Cowboys. King has been utilized as a box safety in Gus Bradley's exotic defensive scheme, providing a good mix of pressure and coverage depending on the down and distance. While he's not a reliable IDP option, he's an intriguing name to monitor in dynasty leagues, given Bradley's pension for developing star safeties.
King had five solo tackles on the day to go along with his sack. The rookie cornerback has yet to haul in an interception this season, but his ability to find the quarterback has been impressive. He was on the field for 47 defensive snaps (56.0 percent).
