Wide receiver competition

The competition at wide receiver is heating up, even if it’s just for the fifth and potential sixth spots on the roster.

Geremy Davis came up big last week and Artavis Scott had a nice game. Who is going to make the plays that count this week?

Nelson Spruce will need to step his game up if he wants to stay in the competition and the same goes for the rookie Dylan Cantrell, who has missed much of camp with an injury. There’s still time for guys like Andre Patton, Justice Liggins and J.J. Jones to make a move, but that time is running out.

The Chargers have four talented wide receivers in Keenan Allen, Tyrell Williams, Mike Williams and Travis Benjamin, so these guys will be playing for a spot deep on the roster. But injuries have plagued the Chargers for years so that player will need to be ready to have his number called at any moment as well.

Right now, it’s a close competition between Davis and Scott. Both of those players will be looking to make as as many plays as they can against the Seahawks in order to improve their odds of winning the job.

Last week, Davis and Geno Smith made for a good connection. Will that continue in this game? If he has another game like that one, it will be hard to keep him off the final roster.
