Who Starts At Wide Receiver Next To Danario Alexander?

Malcom Floyd is done for the year with an and injury. He will miss the final two games and that opens up a spot in the starting lineup at receiver. Which one of the guys should get that opportunity to start next to Danario Alexander?

Micheal Spurlock is probably the next man up on the depth chart, but he has been successful working out of the slot. Should he just move into the starting role and have Eddie Royal work back in the slot (if he is healthy)? This will probably be the move that Norv makes, but there definitely are other options.

Robert Meachem has been in the dog house. He hasn’t been able to get on the same page with Philip Rivers and has slipped down to the bottom of the depth chart. This could be his second chance. He is getting paid like a starting receiver and was expected to be the guy. Now he can try and work his way back into the good graces of the offense. Two final games to see if he can contribute on this team.

Mike Willie is the new kid on the roster, but was everyone’s preseason favorite. He has the size that Philip Rivers likes to throw to and could make an impact. Meachem hasn’t shown that he can do it with his opportunities, might as well see if the rookie can make an impact on the team for next season.

    It’s quite of note that Alexander is the undisputed No. 1 receiver on the team given that at the start of the season he was practically on the street and speaking of street players, I hope that Mike Willie is the starter opposite of Alexander because at least he’ll give it all.

    The good thing about Vincent Brown that Meachem and Royal lack is despite that hes not the typical 6’5” Chargers WR he gets high in the air fights for the ball and catches it with his hands rather than trying to corral it with his body

    • Ernie Padaon

      I hate that they catch the ball with their body. So annoying.
