Chargers: Key offensive players
Key Additions: Tight end Hunter Henry*, wide receiver Dontrelle Inman
Key Losses: Wide receiver Tyrell Williams
Offensive MVP: Wide receiver Keenan Allen
In a season where the Chargers could be without star running back Melvin Gordon for quite some time, receiver Keenan Allen could take a lot of the pressure off of the offense. One of the league’s top route runners can look to put up big numbers, keeping the defense spread out all season long and in turn helping the running backs do their thing between the hashes. The emergence of third-year wide receiver Mike Williams and return of tight end Hunter Henry will do nothing but help Allen this season, whether it be down the field or in key red zone situations. Alongside the rest of this deep receiving corps, Allen will be looking to carve up opposing defenses all season long, and barring injury there is no reason he shouldn’t be capable of doing so. You can almost certainly count on Allen to put up around 100 catches, 1,100 or more yards, and six or more touchdowns this year.
Henry counts as an addition here, as he missed every regular season game last year with a torn ACL. Having him back is a massive boost for the offense.
