King finished the 2018 campaign with 62 tackles (47 solo), 10 passes defended, three interceptions, one of which was returned for a touchdown, and one punt return touchdown.
The slot cornerback capped off an impressive second season with an All Pro nod, but thanks to outdated rules was not eligible to be voted to the Pro Bowl. Regardless, the former Iowa product demonstrated his immense skillset, improving upon his play-making nature from his rookie season by becoming a multi-faceted special teams returner, registering 840 return yards (kick and punt) to go along with his defensive acumen. It's perhaps unrealistic to expect a repeat in production given King was graded among the best cornerbacks in the league according to Pro Football Focus, but with the likes of Casey Hayward, Derwin James and Jahleel Addae all capable secondary players in their own right, King certainly appears to have a bright future in a loaded Chargers defense.
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.
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.
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.
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.
