Chargers grades:

Easton Stick

PFF Grade: n/a

Stats: n/a

Well, no one expected Stick to see the field, and to the surprise of no one, he hasn’t.

Grade: n/a (no snaps)

Lance Kendricks

PFF Grade: 72.9 overall

Stats: Three receptions, 50 receiving yards, no touchdowns, 93.8 passer rating when targeted

As much fun as we made of the Chargers signing Kendricks, he’s actually been more productive than Green or Culkin. With both sidelined (as well as Henry), Kendricks has a chance to not only play meaningful snaps in this offense, but can also hold onto a job heading into next season.

Grade: C

Next. Chargers: Potential trade targets on bad teams

Well, that was a long article. If you’re still here, thanks for reading! Grades are tough to assign, as anything from injury impact and snap count to personal preference and a simple eye test can influence a score. This team is being held together by players like Rivers, Bosa, Ekeler, Hayward, and Allen, with many average players around them. Four games from now, fans will have a better understanding of what kind of team the Chargers are this season. Who has the most opportunity to improve their score, and who will be unable to maintain their current performance?
