The wide receiver corps for the Los Angeles Chargers was a major letdown in 2016.

The injury bug took its toll on the receivers at the start of the season. Wideouts who started out the season in reserve roles on the depth chart were forced into starting roles. Starters were forced to become the top option for the team when they had no business being the number one option.

In this article, I look at the receivers on the Chargers’ roster. I also aim to project where each receiver who had a significant role last season belongs.
